Sony is probably the most recognized audio equipment company worldwide. They were within the first to produce a lot of products we consider ordinary today, but were actually revolutionary back then. The same thing goes with speaker docks, Sony was within the first few to take this market into consideration and made a killing. Over the years they released quite a handful of these units, some made a blast some went unnoticed or even disappointed, but the unit I’m going to review today is more than just decent, from what I see it’s probably one of the best buys when it comes to Sony docking station products.

This Sony Portable Speaker Dock was made available for purchase this month on many online retailer stores, including Amazon.com on May 19, 2013. The media and tech enthusiasts didn't made any buzz about it, and the reviews seem to be late.

I tracked down some users and have them give me their opinions so I can see who this unit will most likely benefit the most, along with their experience with the product.

Cons:
  • No Bluetooth or AirPlay Wireless Technology

Well, the first thing I have to mention about this unit is that it's actually a portable speaker dock system. Unlike other dock stations this unit allows you to take your media on he go and move it from room to room, or simply enjoy your favorite music outside; it comes with a retractable tray so moving it around is more convenient. All this is powered by a an internal rechargeable battery that will provides up to 5 hours of play time. The audio delivery is provided by a 6 Watt, that's 3 W each, stereo speaker system. I consider the rich bass and bass boost circuitry to be enough for indoor use, although I would have chosen to top it up a little for outdoors the enhanced low-frequencies seem to be doing ok for users; but this is definitely understandable since the Sony RDP-T50IPN's main purpose is to benefit those that plan to use it in different rooms.

The streaming possibilities are not that varied, since this is after all a docking station, not a stand alone portable speaker. The Lightning connector will allow you to enjoy your own media directly from your Apple devices. The unit also bring a flexible dock connector to the table, that is compatible with the iPhone 5, and can accommodate many different cases. Another streaming option that comes with this speaker dock, is the auxiliary audio input that lets you connect any compatible digital music players to the unit for fast, easy access to your music; the cable is not included in the package, I understand this because they would have been forced to include a low-quality cable at this price point.

For easier control of your devices, like iPod, iPhone and iPad mini, the unit comes included with a full-function wireless remote control, that will allows you to control your devices from across the room. The Sony RDP-T50IPN Speaker Dock will also charge your devices while playing, which is indeed a good to have feature, always.

Overall I recommend this flexible dock speaker for Apple users, I see no reason why you should buy this if you're using Android or Windows devices. But for those that are looking for a unit like this, I would definitely suggest to check this one out.
