BOTTOM LINE: If you're looking for a great wireless speaker and only have <$200 to spend, look no further!

This is a review of the Sony SRS X5 Wireless Speaker, which has quickly become my new favorite speaker.

Compact stylish speaker with excellent bass for its little frame. Deeper bass and clearer highs than the BOSE Soundlink Mini and my BOSE Companion 2 Series II, mainly attributed to the SONY having three speakers in it rather than BOSE's one. For $200, in my opinion, it is the BEST value you can get.

The interface on the top of the speaker is amazingly sensitive (all touch except for the power and speakerphone buttons), but because it has a clear top it is prone to finger smudges.

This small speaker easily fills up a 20'x20' room off the charger. And the NFC button makes connecting a smartphone super simple. Sounds best at 50%-80% volume off the charger.

I've run the speaker, so far, six hours straight w/o a problem or drop in audio quality. There is an AudioClear button on it, I've found that it accentuates the highs and voices in a song but doesn't enhance the bass at all. It would be a little more convenient if a remote came with the speaker as sometimes turning up the volume on the device it is connected to doesn't always increase/decrease the volume the same amount as if I were to use the buttons on the speaker.

It is also convenient that I can charge my phone through the DC out port. Bit disappointed that to buy a case it would cost an extra $30, but I don't really plan on using this outside of a home/apartment/patio. The charger is a little clunky but nothing so much that it would be an inconvenience to charging the product.

Would also be nice if the speaker came with a little handle or ledge in the product to make transporting it more natural, but at 2.6 lbs carrying it is really easy.

Overall, it is a amazing speaker that rivals those twice its price, but is not a flawless speaker - 4/5.

I am very disappointed in this item. I never had problems with Sony products until now. These speakers buffer/skip a lot so audio quality is bad, plus music waves cause it to move and fall to the floor. I barely use it out of fear it will break. I've only owned it for a few months so I doubt Sony can help me.. Will probably resell.

Great portable speaker with bluetooth

By 

from Winnipeg, MB R3L, Canada

Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I got the SRS-X55 through airmiles and I love it. The sound is full I can hear both the low, mid and high range of sound. I am using it for a speaker with my sony NWZ-A17 and my macbook pro. Both were easy to connect via bluetooth. I like how you can use NFC with the speaker to connect to the NWZ-A17. The sound quality is good with bluetooth for both my macbook pro and nwz-a17. I am really impressed by the sound of the speaker. When I listen to the speaker with the nwz-a17 using bluetooth and LDAC I really hear the sound quality much improved. The speaker really comes out and so much more sound detail is present. It sounds better than my AKG headphones. For quiet listening in front of computer I think it is a great speaker for the price. I like the clearaudio+ integration. All the controls are located on top of the speaker and conveniently placed. I like that you can charge your phone or music player using the powered usb port on the back of the speaker. I tend to plug the sony NWZ-a17 into the usb port to charge and use bluetooth with LDAC to listen to music. I like the small size and it does not take up valuable desk space. I am very happy i got it.

Excellent Sound Quality!

By 

from T8N1Y3

Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I've recently purchased several portable speakers and after taking them home to discover their poor sound quality I returned all of them. Before purchasing the SRS-X55 i did my research online and found many people raving about it. Brought it home and I have to say I am very impressed! Sound quality is superb and the small package packs a big punch - am easily able to listen to great quality music in the backyard while I BBQ. I would easily recommend this product to anyone looking for a portable speaker with good sound and bass.

Excellent Speaker

By 

from Rhode Island, USA

Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

This is an awesome speaker. It has great sound quality, bass, and volume; for such a compact form factor. The built in battery and small size, makes it perfect for moving through the home and outside. Plus the ability to plug in my phone (via the USB port) for charging, is an added bonus.

The Proper Portable "Xplod"

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

Do not let the size fool you. It may be on the small size but the bass and volume are quite explosive. The sound quality is very clear as well. The speaker is portable and has long battery life so it doubles as a compact boombox. You are also able to charge your phones with the USB port at the back, it only works as an OUTPUT however so no data is able to enter the speaker. A solid brick for a speaker, great buy for those who want loud exterior sound rather than headphones. Absolutely brilliant.

Best Bluetooth Under $200

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

In the $200 or less category I have the X5 and the Bose Mini. This X55 is 30watts plugged and 20watts on battery where as the X5 is 20watts plugged and even less on battery. This looks and feels like the X5 but the sound is fuller with a much cleaner sound which must be due to the new technology behind this speaker. The bass is outstanding which make this a powerhouse compared to last years model. My favorite in this price range was the Bose Mini but this X55 tops the Mini in bass which I never thought possible in this size of a speaker. Battery life is true to form at about 10 hours and features like speakerphone capabilities and charging your cell phone makes this a deal at $20 less than the Bose Mini. I have tested others which my friends own like the UE Boom and Charge 2 to name a few but there is no comparison at this time in this price range and speaker size to the X55. I saw on this Sony website available on April 16 and pulled the trigger on the 17th. My order was shipped the next day and was no longer available to order online until May, I thought to myself they must have just a few at this time and feel fortunate to have this product this early and be the first to review. Believe me folks once this is available to order again don't hesitate to get it and you won't be disappointed in this awesome speaker.

    Surprisingly great sound

    By 

    from 20132

    Comments about Sony White Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    Outstanding sound quality at a reasonable price. Indistinguishable from the one from the competition costing nearly twice as much. Easy to connect via Bluetooth, sufficient range for use without keeping source close. No problems after three months of frequent use, but too short to judge reliability. Solid, compact unit with big sound.

      The only thing I didn't select in the PROS category was "lightweight". But I like that it's got some heft to it. It's just the right weight for its size. Rubber feet keep it secure on a smooth surface, but it did vibrate off of my deck railing. No issues with the fall, though.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Absolutely no problems with delivery.
