We have been drooling over the portable Sony SRS-X1 Waterproof Wireless Speaker since it was first announced for the Japanese market. It seems like an ideal speaker to use in a kitchen/bathroom, or even on holiday given its IPX5/IPX7 rating for water resistance.
Well the good news is that Sony Europe has now listed the speaker on its regional European websites. You cannot buy the speaker just yet, if you try to click the buy button you are met with the following notice: “Unfortunately, SRS-X1 is no longer available at the Sony Store Online.” However, the listing has only just appeared, so we imagine it will be available to purchase soon. As soon as it does we’ll bring you details on pricing.
The SRS-X1 speaker has an output of 5W, and is equipped with Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC (for easy pairing). In terms of battery life, the SRS-X1 will last for 12 hours and it weighs 185g.
