Sony SRS-X5 and SRS-X7 Bluetooth speakers now available
The world of Bluetooth speakers is rapidly expanding and it doesn’t seem as if it’s going to start slowing down any time soon, as two new wireless speakers from Sony – the SRS-X5 and SRS-X7 – are now on sale as of today.
The Sony SRS-X5 sells for $199 and comes in red (pictured), black and white. It offers 20 watts of 2.1 sound, weighs just 2.6 pounds, and has up to eight hours of battery life. The speaker also features NFC for one-touch listening.
The bigger brother of the two, the Sony SRS-X7, offers more power, but with a few trade offs. This speaker ups the power, pumping out 32 watts of 2.1 channel sound, but offers only six hours of battery life and is heavier, weighing in a 4.3 pounds. Though it is only available in black, this speaker offers all of the features that the SRS-X5 boast while adding a few more like DLNA and AirPlay streaming. This comes at a price, however: the SRS-X7 will cost you $299.
Both of these speakers are available as of today and can be ordered direct from Sony as well as other retailers like Amazon.
