Sony SRS-X3 Review

Sony SRS-X3

If you are an audio perfectionist, you may need to look away at this moment. If you desire your music loud and full of bass, the Sony SRS-X3 might be the speaker you need. Similar to its predecessor, the SRS-X3 does not come with many things in the carton. You will get a USB AC connector, the speaker itself and a USB cable. Besides the manual, that is all that is included in the box.

 

Build and Design

The whole SRS series shares a related sensibility once it comes to appearance, and it is a feeling that most people appreciate, which probably explains why it is very common. The SRS-X3 is accessible in a few shades; black, white and red.

When it comes to size, the SRS-X3 is clearly tinnier than the SRS-X7, with fewer buttons. The speaker boasts the same smooth, simple look that distinguishes the whole line. Different from several of the luminously decorated horrors presently thronging the Bluetooth speaker business, this would not seem inappropriate on a manager’s desk.

Taking into consideration the size — 7.4 by 2.5 by 2.5 inches — you may assume that this unit is going to be light. However, at 0.95kgs, very few people would consider it light. The weightiness offers the speaker a firm touch, and in a way some people might interpret it to have more features hence higher quality output. The weight notwithstanding, it's not too heavy to inhibit mobility.

 

Connectivity

Coupling the Sony SRS-X3 is an uncomplicated, stress-free process. Even though somehow the speaker does not instantly begin pairing once you switch it on, a fast tap on the Bluetooth switch will sort that out. After that just connect from your gadget and you will be okay. NFC pairing is another alternative that's available in this gadget. Simply connect your gadget to the NFC sign in front and that is it. If you do not wish to make use of Bluetooth or you are making use of a non-Bluetooth gadget, just connect to the audio jack behind and hit the ‘audio in’ knob.

Besides the power, input and Bluetooth controls, the Sony SRS-X3 also comes with devoted volume controls, a call key, and a switch to activate the in-built surround sound simulation. Regrettably, there are not any replay controls. 

 

Battery

Sony asserts a battery lifetime equal to 7 hours. Charge time is about 1.5 to 2 hours using the incorporated AC charger. One distinction from the Sony SRS-X7 is that the SRS-X3 can be charged using a USB cable. This is great after you run out of charge and you did not carry the AC charger with you or if you are playing music from your laptop and there is no wall outlet nearby.

This speaker might not beat its precursors in every aspect. However, it does cover the attributes that count – battery life, decent audio quality and input options. On top of that, it is tinnier and handier to boot.

This speaker might not have the enhanced bass or brand respect like other top of the range products. Nevertheless, it is definitely comparable, and taking into consideration the lower cost, it might certainly be the better option for most people.

  • The Good :
    Nice bass , Well made, Good array of features
  • The Bad :
    No replay controls
Our score:
4.5 / 5
