Sony Unveils New RDP-X500IP Speaker Dock For iPhone

Sony has unveiled a new iPhone speaker dock that promises big sound called the RDP-X500IP. The speaker dock is up for pre-order right now with an expected ship date of October 2. The docking station will cost $299.95. The iPhone dock is on the front of the device and Sony claims that the dock is made to work without you having to remove the case on your iPhone. That is a big deal since many docks force you to remove your case.

The dock has dual passive radiators inside and an integrated subwoofer for deep bass. Sony's S-Master Digital Amplifier is used inside for more performance. The device also has Clear Phase linear phase correction tech and a free app is offered that puts a clock on the iPhone screen and allows the user to adjust the sound settings.

The woofer is a 3 5/8-inch and the satellites are 1 15/16. The dock measures 15 7/8 inches x 7 inches x 6 3/8 inches and weighs in at 6 pounds 15 ounces. The overall power output is 15W + 15W + 30W. The dock will also work with dockable iPods.
