    Those Sony Portable NFC speakers are great. I got one awhile back when Officeworks had them for $36.75. They sound great and are loud, I haven't heard it distort yet even at high volume. Not worth the RRP of $129 but definitely worth it for $49!

  •  

    how do you get the $10 off?

  •  

    That Sony 3-in-1 Headband Walkman for $99.95 is a good deal it seems:

    RRP is crazy on other sites, hm, tempting.

    •  

      Yes, it looks promising and sound quality is better. Not sure if they can be connected wirelessly to the devices as well. Will add it to the main list as well.

        I have these and they're great! A bit on the heavy side so don't try to run with these on. I wear them on my bus commute to and from work with no issues.
        Note that the speaker mode only works for MP3s store on the headphones and not as a normal speaker connected via the analogue input. Same goes for the sound EQ and volume controls - only for MP3s played via the Walkman.

  •  

    postage is exy, $12 for the wireless speaker and if you add a $2.95 small item, it becomes $20 for postage….

  •  

    I bought this for RRP a while ago. So I'm definitely jealous of this deal.

  •  

    I'm trying to get the speaker, but it keeps giving me an error page when I try to register an account… very unhelpful since I'd like the 10% discount voucher.

    It's a great because you can use AA batteries. I always pack few eneloops as backup for long trips.

  •  

    I did a fair bit of research and ended up going with a Logitech X-300, which seems to give slightly better sound than UE Mini Boom based on the reviews I read. I couldn't find a direct comparison between this speaker which is larger and either the X-300 or the Mini boom. Anyone got both?

  •  

    How does this compare to the Logitech Mini Boom?

    By the way reviews on Amazon are mixed. This was one of the better sets of reviews to look for. I'm concerned about mentions of rust, cutting out and speakers not having the expected volume.

    http://www.amazon.com/ref=nav_logo

    There are also reviews on Youtube.

    Google SRS-BTM8.

    I'll be honest the only thing that makes me want this is the AA batteries. But on the other hand it doesn't charge them through power plug so even that's not great. The handbag shape would make it awkward to use in the car.

    The other one I looked at that took AA batteries was the Creative D100 which can be had cheap on Amazon but it also had some pretty bad reviews.

    Although the mini boom seems to be a bit of a cult favourite, but it sounded kind of muddy on the video reviews when put up against other things.

    By the way for anyone who owns a logitech X-300 it has an annoying habit of shutting off with inactivity after 15 mins even when plugged in. I found away around that which even Logitech support didn't seem to know. Simply plug in a cable to the aux port even if you're using the bluetooth. When that's done it will shut down running on battery but it won't shut down when plugged in.

    I wish more things were made to run on AA batteries. Yes changing them can be a pain but it means your gear won't die after a couple of years.

      I bought mine last year and have no issues about rusting unless you put them near a pool with water splashes. Sound wise, I love them. It is better than many cheap portable speakers. Volume is decent and I do not play them on full. But it is a subjective term if you are comparing them with big speakers.

      I am sure you won't want speakers to manage charging as well when charger itself costs around $20 :)

        I always look at the negative reviews most. I assume there are paid astroturfing shills. (I am NOT saying you) that will post reviews that they're terrific.

        On the amazon reviews:
        - More than one person has said they cut out at high volume.
        - More than one person has said they just stopped working one day within a short period of time.
        - One self confessed Sony fan said he couldn't give a higher review and had to return them and keep a different set despite wanting to like them.
        - Multiple reviews say smaller speakers produce higher volumes.
        - Even the positive reviews admit the treble is thin.

        Now it's possible competitors are paying shills to rubbish them but just like here you can look at a person's profile and get an idea. It's a lot easier to do this with a handful of negative reviews than with a lot of positive ones.

        Maybe I'd have a different opinion if I heard and saw them in person but I wasn't going to buy sight unseen and sound unheard.

        Basically after I see a high rating I want to know what problems I may have, and I use that to judge.

        I almost bought UE Mini Boom based on the glowing revies but when someone did a side by side comparison with nicer speakers on Youtube and said the Mini Boom was a little muddy (sounded really muddy on Youtube to my ears) I dodged them and went for Logitech X-300s. I did this knowing there was an issue with idle shut down (my biggest concern, thankfuly I got around it) and that the battery life is about half of the Mini Boom and the speaker is a little bigger. One key factor was I got to try them out (still in packaging) and was impressed that I could hear them throughout the Officeworks store. (They were in the middle of the store. It was the size of a kids soccer field). I'm really happy with my choice. I'd be ecstatic if they didn't require the work around and ran on and recharged AA (even with required slight increase in size). Everything is a tradeoff. just worth knowing what the negatives are up front.

          Every single item on Amazon will have negative votes and you will end up getting nothing. I got it after having positive reviews from the members of the ozbargain and did not regret the buy though I paid much more.
          It is at a very good price now and worth a try :)

          @Gaggy:

          Agree with that statement. Often items are reviewed at full RRP, or a negative when there is some fault ( perceived fault or annoyance ). When you get high volume selling items from big brands such as this, you are bound to get a lot of mediocre and even negative reviews, it a matter of numbers. If I look at amazon reviews, you add up all reviews and see the average % of good against bad ( in a round kind of way ). Also comparing the sound of these to smaller speakers can also be unfair, as many smaller ones cost double to tripple, even up to the $250 or over mark.

          @ozhunter68: True. I always take overall comments and unless there is a serious problem and big money involved, I jump to good deals :)

          PS4 has low reviews in amazon, but its selling well…

        •  

          @Gaggy:

          Well obviously I did eventually buy and as I mentioned what I bought is not perfect. I'm just saying know what you're getting into. I'm tempted only by the AA batteries. Low volume is a deal breaker for hands free in the car. Handbag styling is large and awkward. I can get smaller speakers that do more. And cutting out at high volume or dying after a short time are clear deal breakers.

        •  

          @ozhunter68:

          Many reviews these days take price into account in the remarks. Certainly for bluetooth speakers which have wildly varying and fluctuating prices.

          @syousef: Not sure if you should use them in the car as handsfree.
          Enjoy them at home or backyard or outdoors during picnic. I wont say they are low in volume unless you are trying to hear a snail sound from katy's roar . :)

          http://www.sony.com.au/product/srs-btm8

          "NFC (One-touch Connection)
          Bluetooth® (SBC multiple codec)
          20 hrs Playback
          Hands-Free Calls
          Portability with Built-in Handle
          Bass Reflex System"

          Many of the more expensive bluetooth speakers are built for use as hands free. It is a listed feature and requires a particular protocol to support hands free calling. A2DP is the music protocol, HFP is the handsfree protocol. i.e. You can't use music speakers that only support A2DP for hands free.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bluetooth_profiles#Hand...

          The following speakers discussed on this thread support HFP:
          Sony SRS-BTM8. (The speaker on special).
          Bose min.
          UE Mini Boom.
          Logitech X-300.

          The following does not:

          @syousef:
          True. I was more referring to user reviews who bought items at different prices and often have individual expectations. Often they are not enthusiast let alone experts, hence have their own personal opinions, sometimes balanced, sometimes not. Don't get me wrong, it's wise to be wary of high volume bad reviews and stay away from Lemons, unless like me on Saturday, when I picked a bucket full of organic bush lemons on a friends farm for free :-)

        •  

          @syousef: I know you can answer the phone and I have been doing that. I only asked about using them in a car for a handsfree solution.
          Having said that, no one is stopping to use them as you like.

        •  

          @ozhunter68:

          Absolutely correct. You must consider the source. What they're saying. Is it reasonable? Are others saying the same thing? Skepticism is necessary if you don't want to be ripped off.

          MMmmm lemonade.

        •  

          @Gaggy:

          I can't think of why I'd want a hands free speaker in the home…but I guess that's because my phones all have speakers built in.

        •  

          @syousef: You are listening to music doing your work and phone comes up, else no special reason mate.

    is sound somehow similar to bose mini? had a play at jb and not impressed with the mini…

    there's no click and collect for this item (or may be I'm blind)
    edit: my 1 item (for $10 discount) is the culprit

    •  

      Might be. Not all items have click and collect. When you see the item, you will be able to see if it is online only or can be collected.

    Weird. Individually Click and Collect is available on both items I have selected but when I combine them it dissapears.

      Same here, cannot figure out how to choose Click and Collect these items :( Please let me know if you find something! Thanks!

    Just picked up a SRSBTS50L - portable splashproof rechargable speaker. $76 and change delivered with the $10 off.

    The housemate has a similar one and cost her $300 a few months back, works a treat, so this is a bargain (cheapest around by 50$ by my looking…) Cheers :)

    •  

      Thanks for suggestion. I bought one too. I cancelled original order. Seemed worthwhile spending extra $20.

  •  

    Sold out. In case someone wants it. I am happy for someone to pickup at my cost price $56 in Sydney CBD. It will be unopened package.
    I bought SRSBTS50L instead.

    Just received my Sony speakers. very quick delivery and they look great. The box is not damaged and looks brand new

    •  

      Thanks for the update! Did you check the order status from oo.com.au website? My order has been approved for dispatching after some minutes I placed the order but nothing changed since then.

      •  

        Must admit I hadn't but I just checked and it says dispatched 29 Sept. I suspect yours isn't that far behind

    •  

      Yes, they are pretty quick with the delivery. They are owned by Graysonline as well and they do sometimes say the boxes may be damaged ( may be to counter other sellers or people price matching other shops) but the items are brand new.

  •  

    Just received my dock this morning, no damaged box but the display does not work :(

    I am contacting oo.com.au for the support, hope they can sort this out soon.
