Message Text: Sony has started offering three new wireless speakers today, each giving audiophiles easy access to sound in a sleek design.

The SRS-X9 High-Resolution wireless speaker system, and the SRS-X7 and SRS-X5 wireless speaker systems, developed in collaboration with Sony Music, promise to bring clear vocals and bass-rich thumping tunes to any living space or on the go. The SRS-X9 will retail for $699.99, the SRS-X7 for $299.99 and the SRS-X5 for $199.99.

Sony's new wireless speakers feature a geometric "Definitive Outline" design consisting of 12 outlines around the square form to create a sound wave. All three models also offer a multitude of connectivity and streaming options, at home and in the go. The speakers connect wirelessly to nearly any Bluetooth-enabled device, including smartphones, tablets and computers, and can connect to NFC-enabled devices with a simple tap. All three models also support on-board WiFi for direct access to online music and internet radio services such as Music Unlimited, Spotify, and TuneIn Radio when you download the SongPal app to their mobile device, as well as Apple Airplay and DLNA.

The flagship model, SRS-X9 wireless 2.1 channel system, supports High-Resolution Audio, which retains far more detail during the analog-to-digital conversion process. Features include a 154W of music output power, a bi-amped subwoofer and dual passive radiators.

The portable SRS-X5 is packed with 20W ofaudio and offers up to eight hours of continuous playback. It also includes a built-in subwoofe.

All three models include Sony's Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX), ClearAudio+, an S-Master Digital Amplifier and built-in NFC technology.
