Sony's compact Bluetooth speaker offers strong sound for its size and costs much less than the Bose.
The $200 SRS-X5 delivers excellent sound in a relatively small package and competes directly with the top-selling Bose SoundLink Mini.
The $300 SRS-X7 offers both WiFi and Bluetooth streaming, plus Apple AirPlay support in a compact, classy looking package.
With comparably good sound for its size and the addition of speakerphone features, the Sony SRS-X3 mini Bluetooth speaker measures up well against the pricier Bose SoundLink Mini.

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.
