|The making of ZiiSound D5|
From building a rigid structure inspired by modern architecture to selecting a special acoustically-porous fabric, we went through so much to bring you the ZiiSound D5.
1 The BT-D5 is compatible with iPod touch (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation), iPod classic (this refers to the 6th generation iPod or later), iPod nano (3rd, 4th 5th and 6th generation - iPod nano 5th generation's radio feature not supported), iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.
My first test was with my 5th Gen iPod classic, I simply connected the Bluetooth dongle, selected my song and away it went. I was quite shocked at just how simple it was. It is also important to note that the Bluetooth dongle provided by Creative isn't some general Bluetooth device, it actually uses the aptX audio codec which apparently provides superior Bluetooth stereo audio, and I have to say it did sound pretty good.
It offers excellent sound too, with a rear-facing bass port boosting the lower end and twin 2.75-inch full frequency drivers giving a rich, detailed audio that's full of character...The ZiiSound D5 combines good looks with great audio, and its excellent Bluetooth system gives you full control over your sounds.
4.5 out of 5
There's a surprising amount of bass for such a small system and it doesn't overwhelm the overall balance, instead adding a pleasing level of depth and warmth. There's also great mid-range clarity, with vocals coming across particularly well. This is rounded off nicely with a crisp high-end too... Importantly, there was no significant deterioration in quality when cranking the volume up.
8 out of 10
Incredible sound and tasteful design... A perfect match.
good product, punchy, would have like the bass to extend a bit lower. at high volumes, it distorts and starts to sound a bit tinny. would have like a remote to control volume. not bad but difficult to justify the high price
the creative zIIsound D5 has an amazing sound quality for the size of the unit, its a very nice looking speaker and easy to use , i have placed the unit above some kitchen cabinets and use the bluetooth to play music across an open plan room. The one speaker is more than enough to fill the room with a very surprising natural sound , and no distortion
