Sony SRS-X5: Is this Bluetooth speaker better than the Bose SoundLink Mini?

 

With strong sound and a built-in speakerphone, you can make the case that the $200 Sony SRS-X5 is a better buy than the Bose Mini.

For a relatively compact wireless speaker, the simple but classy-looking Sony SRS-X5 offers excellent sound with strong bass. It has built-in speakerphone functionality, a USB charging port (to charge your smartphone), NFC tap-to-pair technology, and...

Sounds better when plugged in with AC power; its design is more suited for indoor use (speaker isn't ruggedized).

While it doesn't play as loud when it's on battery power, the Sony SRS-X5 holds its own against the top Bluetooth speakers in its size and price class.

Sony SRS-X5 bluetooth speaker review

 

Buying out of the Sony ecosystem might be a better idea

nice design ; Small form factor ; NFC and Bluetooth connectivity

Cluttered sound-stage

Sony SRS-X5

 

The Sony SRS-X5 is a solid Bluetooth speaker, but you can find more bass and portability at this price range.

Good overall sound quality. Built-in speakerphone. NFC-enabled.

Not for big bass lovers.

Conclusions If you already own a Sony smartphone or tablet, and you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker to complement it, the Sony SRS-X5 is a solid choice. It will fit the look just right, and as long as you're not looking the be blown away by...
