Sony SRS-X7 review


Seeing a renaissance of sorts in consumer audio, Sony has redoubled its efforts in the market recently. Part of the company's new push is its latest line of portable speakers, the SRS-X series. The middle child of the new lineup, the SRS-X7, offers a...

Clear, balanced treble ; Potential for huge bass ; Feature packed/multiple ways to play ; Attractive design ; Portable and versatile

Operation can be sluggish ; Glosses over inner detail ; Occasional AirPlay drop-out ; Loses potency when unplugged

The X7 provided plenty of pleasant moments, showcasing a smooth and clear sound signature, and more power than its size would suggest.

Sony SRS-X7


In 2013, Sony put out a fine Bluetooth speaker, the SRS-BTX500 . In the US, it was a little pricey at $300, but it delivered impressive sound for its size and measured up well against competitors such as the Bose SoundLink Wireless II and Jawbone Big...

The Sony SRS-X7 has a sleek, minimalist design and allows you to stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, with both AirPlay and DLNA support.

Somewhat pricey; Wi-Fi set-up isn't simple; battery life could be better; speaker vibrates with heavy bass at high volumes and can move around on smoother surfaces.

While the SRS-X7 can't beat the performance of competitors like the Bose SoundLink III, it's a nice portable wireless speaker that offers the flexibility of both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Very Good Product


I purchased this item in store and was able to quickly set it up with my IPhone 5E. The installation/pairing only took a few minutes after I downloaded the products APP.It works well, but a few times it shuts off after 30 or so minutes. Not sure what...

Sometime it kicks off after 30 minutes or so

Great sound


Was easy to set up. Fills the room with great sound, just be careful of the vibration.

The sound is big and will fill the room

vibrates a lot and have to be careful not to fall over

Consumer review by:

great speaker bad battery life tho


great sound and easy to use but the battery life is like 20 mins on the wireless at full charge so you will need to use it plugged in for more than a 1/2 hour or so but other than that thing is sick

bumps and loud easy to use

battery/wireless life

Good device


Good sound. Speaker is too heavy and battery life is not very good.

Okay quality


X5 was too quite and x7 doesn't have enough features and moves on flat surface at full volume. But still better than Bose. Has USB port for charing.

Nice speaker - easy to use


The Sony X-7 Speaker for it's size puts out a lots of quality sound. It looks very simple and does not stand out, basically not an eye sore. I'm very pleased with the speaker.

Bluetooth set up is simple

Pricey, but worth the extra money
