Sony SRS-X5 Bluetooth speaker on sale
Bluetooth speakers are everywhere and it’s hard to choose which ones are right for you. That decision is always made a little bit easier when prices drop. The Sony SRS-X5 Bluetooth speakers are usually priced at a solid $199.99, which put them in the same price range as competitors like the Bose Soundlink Mini or the Logitech UE Boom. So how do you stand out if you’re Sony? Drop the price.
As the title suggests, the Sony SRS-X5 Bluetooth speakers are on sale for either $158.00 or $168.00, depending on the color through Amazon. That’s over $30.00 in savings which, conveniently, is roughly how much the corresponding carrying case would cost. The speaker comes in three different color options: red, white, and black. The red SRS-X5 is the one priced at $168.00, while the black and white options are both $158.00. Regardless of color, it comes with NFC capabilities, a standard 3.5 mm aux input, and a USB output to charge all of your things. Keep in mind that battery life on the SRS-X5 is only about 8 hours, so charging your devices would definitely shorten playing time. On a brighter note, they also have the ability to answer phone calls right from the speaker which is something to keep in mind if that’s a make-or-break feature for you.
With 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, the Sony SRS-X5 is a crowd pleaser. If you were waiting for the price to drop, now is your chance.
