Sony X5 Specs

Here, we list Sony X5 portable Bluetooth speaker specs.  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.

Now it’s clear from the published specs, that the Sony X5, released in early 2014, sounds pretty decent. It indeed plays loud enough for smaller parties and gatherings in diners, small stores, et al, with its twenty (20) watts RMS max of stereo sound power. Plus, its enclosure gives more bass than models of the same size.

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