      Fantastic boombox with incredible options

      I was searching for a new boombox for my parents since their old one quit working. They know I am much more tech knowledgeable than them so I would get them something of decent quality. I came across this item online and was slightly deterred by the price but saw lesser prices items didn't have as good of quality reviews. The more I read about this the more great options I saw it provided that I felt would be of great benefit to my parents. Getting to the point, this boombox has 2-3 wonderful features. 1. A USB port for inserting a flashdrive with countless hours of music on so they don't have to keep changing discs all the time. 2. A recording option that allows them to rip cd's to the flashdrive. They have been adding their favorite cd's to the stick so they don't have to constantly change out cd's. This has been very valuable to them. 3. This device has 'bluetooth' so it also allows you to sync up a compatible device to stream music through the air. We haven't used that feature yet because not being tech heavy they really don't have any Bluetooth devices to use but I feel its a nice option to have added for future use. My mother is really bad with anything tech but it has been pretty simple to get her to use the device. Recording is pretty user friendly to do, only have to push 3 buttons to rip a cd. The ONLY thing I would improve upon is the EQ. There is no eq for this boombox. You have a button for 'added bass' which is very little at that. I am huge into sound and was disappointed that I couldn't alter the eq sound in any manner, not even eq presets. I feel you must have that on any audio device, even lil mp3 players offer that. EQ options and I would have given this 5 stars. But aside from that issue this boombox has been fantastic, my parents love it, my dad tells me everyday how appreciative he is that I got them this item. Price? In their case it was money well spent.

      I purchased this after reading several reviews online. Getting your phone to pair with it is so easy on Android just tap the NFC icon on your phone then just literally tap the phone onto the top left corner of the boombox-it's that easy! The radio reception is really good but I did have to read over the instructions to fix the stations in memory. For some reason after having it "auto" scan for stations to store in memory, some of them would be one off for example the radio would store 95.5FM when the stations actual frequency is 95.7FM. I had to go thru and re-store the stations on the correct frequency. Not a huge deal. Another good feature is you don't always have to use the power button, if you push one of the function buttons the unit will power on and go to that function (CD, Bluetooth, etc) The speakers are really powerful for their size and the bass is deep using Sony's " mega bass" button. There is no other way to adjust the audio settings such as treble all you get is mega bass on or off but it sounds good on. I have listened to several differnet types of music as well as a podcast and all sound good. Perfect size and sound for my apartment as I have no place for a shelf system and even then I cant use it to its potential because the neighbors would complain so this boombox is perfect for people in apartments! My one grip is the LCD display on the front of the unit. It is NOT back lit and when the unit is powered off, it says "STANDBY" Come on, Sony! You could have at least included the TIME to display on it when the unit is powered off or just have the display blank. The "STANDBY" on the display is kind of annoying.

      Best Boom Box for its Size and Price

      After many months of searching, I finally decided to buy the Sony ZSRS60BT Boom Box as a gift for my wife who often listens to the radio and CDs while writing in a room that used to be a bedroom. My decision was based mainly on reviews on Best Buy and a couple of other websites. We have been using this device for about 3 weeks and my wife and I are very happy with it. This Sony fills the room with beautiful music regardless of what source we use. So far, all the CDs (including CD-R) that she has tired have played. I said that because a Sony CD player that we had a couple of decades ago could NOT play homemade CDs (on CD-R) or some commercially-available discs. This is NOT a problem with the ZSRS60BT. For the size and wattage of the speakers, the sound quality is very good, and volume is adequate for most kitchen-, dorm room and bedroom-sized rooms. We have used all the operations that are available except copying ("burning") CDs onto a USB flash drive. Everything, including the Bluetooth operations work as advertised. We were skeptical about this feature because it uses an older (2.1) format and our computers and tablet uses the newer 4.0 format. NO PROBLEMS! We can play mp3 and other sound files that our digital devices were playing through the Sony ZSRS60BT speakers, and their sound quality is very good. The reasons that I am rating this as 4-stars rather than 5 stars are: 1) the AM radio receptions does not seem as good as other radios that we have in our house (a minor point for most people these days), and 2) the price of this device seems to be a bit high (perhaps 20% too high) for something that is a couple years old. Bottom line; this is probably the best all-around portable system available for under $100. We are very happy with our purchase thus far.

      Mediocre product-description misleading

      Posted

      I've shopped around for a boombox for quite awhile. I've had several over the years and lately they've been hard to find. I purchased this for my office and was looking for some specific features. Compared to similar products I've owned in the past, this one is mediocre. It's better than some others on the market currently but is definitely lower quality than those I bought 5 or 10 years ago. The sound quality is acceptable--not great but tolerable. It has some features I wanted but was disappointed to learn that the product description is not accurate. One feature I liked was the 30 radio presets. Sony says it has 30 but their instructions say it has 3 and their customer service confirmed this. I could overlook it if it had 10 or 15 but 3 is not enough to save the stations I listen to most often. Overall, the product feels flimsy and not nearly as sturdy as past models. Given this, I'd recommend saving some money and getting a cheaper product as this one did not deliver. If you want a high quality sound, go with something more expensive as most audiophiles will be disappointed with this.

      Bad quality, horrible customer service. Beware!!!

      Bad quality, horrible customer support. Beware!!! I liked this player, the sound, the portability. Then the CD player stopped working after less than two months of casual use. Called customer support, they offered to send a replacement but first I had to carefully pack the old one and return it. I had to buy a box and packing material, they paid postage, I returned the unit. Received the replacement a week and a half later. Boombox was mailed to me with no special packaging, just store shelf box. It was crushed on one side. I called them and asked them to kindly send a replacement, properly packaged. They refused. I asked for a refund, they refused. They told me to open it and see if it works. I told them that it was obviously smashed during shipping. This music player is built with thousands of intricate running parts. I would never buy one that looked like this, knowing that it's been banged up. So now I have to take a photo of the packaging, a photo of the player, send it to them and they'll decide what they'll do. This is just so ridiculous! I am utterly disappointed in Sony support (actually, lack of support). When choosing a product, quality is just as important as customer support. Obviously, Sony fails in both regards. In the future, when we're buying our next electronic product, the Sony brand will be disregarded immediately.

      Decent outdoors

      I bought the boombox because I wanted something that I could use outdoors. It was important that it could run on battery power if needed. I don't know how long the batteries last, and they aren't re-chargeable like a lot of bluetooth speakers, but this boombox has a lot of nice things that I wanted to be able to use that traditional bluetooth speakers don't have. I tested the volume outside with/without batteries, and it seems to be good for about 50-100ft away. It was important for me to have the capability to play CDs directly because I have a number of them and they're still very prevalent. The bluetooth functionality works great, I used it to play sounds from my phone without the App made for this. I haven't tried out the App yet. I didn't realize how much I would like the ability to play music off of a USB storage device. It recognizes groups of songs as being in different folders and plays them that way. The boombox also lets you plug in an audio cable and use that as an input source. I haven't tried that yet, but I think it's an awesome feature. In general, this boombox is very versatile. The only complaint that I can think of is the lack of a re-chargeable battery, but I keep it plugged in most of the time so far so that's not a deal breaker for me.

      Solution for my MP3 needs

      I needed a way to play MP3s for my mother while she is in the skilled nursing facility after a severe stroke. The playback had to be randomized and needed to run completely un-attended. The only workable solution that I had been able to find was to get a laptop and go through all of that hassle. We did not have any iPods or anything similar to hook up to a speaker docking station. Also, it had to have real speakers since ear buds or headphones would be completely out of the question. After describing my needs to the Associate at my local BestBuy, he found this Sony unit to try out. It is almost the perfect solution to my needs and it works great. The sound quality is very good and Mom is very pleased. I do wish that it had more control over the bass and treble, but it is really pretty good as it is. The radio portion is an added bonus, but not needed for this particular application. Highly recommended.

      Perfect size for a dresser, desk, small office/bedroom (in addition to it being portable). Sound was better than expected. It reproduces a good range of frequencies with only drivers, and it doesn't sound flat. Some folks mentioned the cord coming out easy. You have to snug it in the first time, then it holds firm, no problems. Bluetooth connected within 10 seconds without issue or static like a cheaper model I tried first. Volume is plenty load enough for any room in the house or office. Low down: In my opinion, boomboxes are dinosaurs. Everyone wants small, lightweight wireless headphones and spear cubes. These are hard to find nowadays, and even harder to find with this many features for $99. Bluetooth, telescoping antenna, FM & AM radio, USB for charging and ripping CDs to thumb drives, simple stylish design. My 10 year daughter is going to love this!
