The SRS-X7 includes a built-in subwoofer with dual passive radiators and two full-range drivers (grille not removable, shown to illustrate drivers).
With an understated yet attractive look — a low-key metal grille trimmed in black, and a plethora of wireless and wired connection options, the Sony SRS-X7 gives you a lot of flexibility. It is small enough to fit on a desk or counter space and sturdy enough to withstand the wears of moving from room to room.
The SRS-X7 works well in a living room, bedroom, or office where it can be plugged in, but also unplugged out in the garage or even on the deck. You can get a good six hours of portable play time (3 hours when connected to a Wi-Fi® network) with the built-in lithium-ion battery fully charged.
Even though it has a relatively small footprint, the SRS-X7 puts out suprisingly full, spacious sound. Sporting a subwoofer with dual passive radiators and two full-range drivers, it can fill most medium-sized rooms with ease. To make sure all your music sounds the best it can, Sony's added an enhancement mode to restore some of the elements that can get lost with compressed music files, including high frequency response.
Sony has loaded up the SRS-X7 with connectivity options. You get more versatility with the SRS-X7 than you do with most speakers this size:
When your iOS or Android device and speaker are synced up to your Wi-Fi network, there is another way to play music wirelessly if you have a Spotify Premium account. The SRS-X7 becomes an option for the Spotify Connect feature of the Spotify® app, found in the form of a "speaker" icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the app. Spotify Connect is a new way to use your phone or tablet to select, play, and control music from your Spotify account through the speaker. Since the music is streaming through the Wi-Fi connected network, you don't have the range restrictions of Bluetooth. You can also make a phone call, play a video, or use an app on your device without interrupting the music coming from the SRS-X7.
ive had this speaker for a couple weeks now and I absolutely love it! The sounds is awesome for its size....I couldn't be happier!
Really disappointed with overall sound. Will be sufficient for bedroom or smaller room but overall speaker not loud enough. Quality of sound was nice but just not enough for the price paid.
Overall a great souding unit that allows easy bluetooth connectivity. The bluetooth distance is great compared to other speakers. I do miss a remote and controls on the unit to skip songs. Compared to other units it is a little tougher to pick up because it is so sleek. We use it inside and outside and all around the house.
Pros: Bluetooth distance, sound.
