Sony X 5 Specifications

Here, we list Sony X 5 portable wireless BT speaker specifications.  Now these details cover the unit’s length, width, weight, battery recharge time, output power, and music play time per charge.  We also include the frequency response, harmonic distortion, and Bluetooth support details.

Furthermore, it’s clear from the published specifications, and from our own ears, that the Sony X 5, released in 2014, sounds plenty good. It indeed plays loud enough for smaller parties and gatherings in diners, small stores, et al, with its twenty (20) watts RMS of sound power. Plus, the sealed enclosure design gives more bass than other models of the same size.

Finally, even at max output, the lithium ion battery lasts up to eight (8) hours per charge.  Indeed the specifications do not mislead as to the great features Sony put into this water resistant wireless speaker.
