    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.

    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.

    The ZiiSound D5 is dedicated to one purpose: streaming audio wirelessly and with great sound. It performs this one purpose very, very well... if you're after a wireless multimedia speaker that sounds fantastic and performs brilliantly, the ZiiSound D5 is an elegant and excellent example of its type.

    Having used the iPod's standard Bluetooth option, the next step was to see if the BT-D5 transmitter and aptX codec made any difference to the audio quality. I fired up some old Queen songs to check out the multi-layered harmonies and the audio quality definitely improved when using the transmitter, producing a fuller sound with greater detail noticeable on both the higher and lower frequencies.

    My first test was with my Sony Erisson mobile phone (Aino), when I selected my song, it started playing in just under 3 seconds. I was quite shocked at just how simple and fast it was.... Conclusion: The sound quality is impressive considering the sleek and compact design of the ZiiSound D5.

    The Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth Wireless Speakers not only gives you the freedom to select music and indeed video from your portable media player, but also represents a stunning sound quality that for the size will certainly fill most medium sized rooms. The stunning clarity even at lower volumes presents an amazing sense of satisfaction for the listener, while not dominating your room with a complete hi-fi system. The design is simplicity itself in both of actual use of the technology and the stylish presentation.

    The sound quality is very impressive given the size of the ZiiSound D5. Using the transmitter, there is bags of detail and the speakers maintain audio integrity at those higher volumes you want for your party... The D5 does a good job of projecting your music into the room, giving a wider sound stage than you might expect and with punchy bass giving depth to tracks where lesser iPod docks can be found lacking.

    ...it did perform wonderfully in terms of mid range tonality, musicality and timbre with some test music sounding as good, if not better than ever heard by us before... We think that the ZiiSound D5 is shaping up as one of the most potent and influential 'must have's' of 2010, which will send many a ripple through the SoundBar market...

    If you're looking for a speaker set for your shiny new iPhone 4 then we'd recommend the ZiiSound D5... So, once you've paired it with your iPhone 4 (in the Settings app) you're free to wander around with it up to 10 meters away and enjoy uninterrupted audio.

    And, you know, the sound is extremely good. Certainly a lot better than you'd expect from something if its diminutive size... I pushed the volume up high and it had no problems with the results – they would certainly work brilliantly at a party.

    Probably best known for their soundcards and portable MP3 players, this is Creative’s attempt at a high end set of wireless speakers. Bluetooth is limited for transporting audio. Creative gets round this with a compression codec called aptX, but this requires you to attach the bundled dongle. It’s not ideal but it does provide a noticeable boost in sound quality. For audio devices not blessed with wireless, there’s a 3.5mm jack at the rear.

    Sound is rich, there is plenty of bass, and the volume goes all the way up to what feels like all-night-party mode. This wireless sound system feels like quality and it’s a joy to use – as long as you keep the wireless within the specified distance it works fantastically well.

    What's neat is that your iPod or iPhone becomes the system's remote controller- you navigate through the music on your device as though you were listening to headphones connected to it... The transmitter and the base are simple to pair with each other over Bluetooth, and the ZiiSound D5 can be paired with other Bluetooth-equipped devices as well, like laptops.

    Incredible sound and tasteful design... A perfect match.

  • J. Phoon

    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

  • t. livermore

    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
