Sony SRS-X7 review

 

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.

Sony SRS-X7 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony SRS-X7 is another member of Sony's new wireless speaker family, offering a step up in size and power from the similarly sleek SRS-X5. We liked the SRS-X5 in many respects, but found the sound could be clear on some material, and overly...

Sony SRS-X7 Wireless Speaker Review

 

Sony's SRS-X7 is one of the most flexible wireless speakers around, with Bluetooth NFC, DLNA and UPnP compatibility. It also has an app which...

Great sound ; Understated design ; Very handy app ; Integration with just about any streaming service ; Can be used off mains

Could be easier to setup ; 5Ghz network incompatibility

Certainly, if I was shopping for such a product and I had around £250 to spend on one, this would probably be my choice of the products we’ve tested. Yes, it can be a bit frustrating to setup but everything else is excellent once you have. The sound...

Sony SRS-X7 review

 

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

While there’s a lot to like about Sony’s new SRS-X7, the speaker seems to have a bit of an identity crisis. Unable to decide whether it wants to be a portable or a homebound speaker, it balances between both worlds, without really excelling at either....

Sony SRS-X7

 

The Sony SRS-X7 is a versatile Bluetooth speaker more noteworthy for its feature set than its sound quality.

Supports Airplay, Bluetooth, DLNA, and NFC. Good sound quality at most volumes.

Lackluster bass response and volume levels. Complicated AirPlay and DLNA setup.

Performance and Conclusions Sound never distorts on the SRS-X7, even at maximum volume on tracks with heavy sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout." Unfortunately, that's because the speaker lacks both bass response and volume in general. It...

Sony SRS X7 Bluetooth Speaker : Rich Powerful Sound [Review]

 

We are heading into the final weeks of the summer and of course we still got to keep the music going. While we have covered some smaller portable speakers that you can pick up and go, there are a few that are while still wireless and portable are...

The SRS X7 is a nice looking speaker to have in your living room and match with your decor as it doesn’t have an outlandish design and can pretty much blend in. It has loud rich sound but may not be for those that want more oomph or bass in their taste...

Sony SRS-X7 Review

 

The Sony SRS-X7 sounds best when you play acoustic and classic rock. More aggressive, bass-driven songs give this speaker trouble. When we played Metallica and The Floozies through the speaker, it sounded thin and bright. The speaker features Bluetooth...

The Sony has a natural and balanced sound for acoustic, jazz and classic rock songs.

It sounds thin and treble-heavy when more aggressive music such as electronic dance music and metal is played.

The Sony SRS-X7 is a fine choice if your preferred musical genres don't emphasize bass tones.

Complicated set up and faulty volume controls

 

Really disappointed in this product, so much so that I returned it. The set up was so complicated that I nearly gave up all together. Once set up, the volume controls on the actual speaker were very poor and barely worked. I then found other reviews...
