Disappointed in the Sound

I do not consider myself to be an audiophile, but the sound coming from this unit is definitely not the best. I have an older UE boombox that sounds much better. What I do like about this unit is the fact that it can safely be in the bathroom or near a pool, and that the phone feature works as indicated. I won't miss any calls while I'm in the shower (people always seem to call at that time). If you're looking for good sound quality, this unit is not for you. But if you're looking more for a water resistant device to connect to your phone, then go for it.

It's just ok...

I've spent a lot of time in the store to compare the sound quality between Bluetooth speakers - here is my conclusion: I didn't quite like the sound quality of this Sony SRS-XB3. Yes it Is loud, but pretty much that's it. I found Sonos Play-1 produces much better sound. Bose SoundLink Revolve also sounds good. But they both are way too expensive comparing to Sony. I'll save my money for now and will buy a Sonos / Revolve if it goes on sale.

Good solid sounding speaker for the price

Bought two of these on sale and for the price these are loud sounding speakers, easy to connect/pair and with sound that is good, of course, not comparable to home speakers. I'm very happy with this purchase and recommend them.

Pleased

I am pleased with the performance of the Bluetooth speakers and have purchased two of these units. I operate them wirelessly from my MP3 player. They are easy to pair and are of good construction quality and design.

Fantastic Product

I bought 1 each for my dad and brother for Christmas, went and purchased 2 more for myself, Your able to link for stereo L&R sound, Battery life was also shocking considering how much bass these things produce. Great sound for a great price.

Surprising power

Setup through NFC is impossibly easy, just rest your phone into it and click OK. Power is surprising, it's really loud, though there really is a sweet spot in the middle for quality before the little drivers become stressed, this can be exacerbated by the extra bass function which I don't think it's even needed, as deep and powerful bass is the name of the game here without the need for any bass boost. My only complaints are, like any normal human being, I just assumed this would charge with a 5v USB, but I was surprised to find it's own dedicated power cord in the box, this thing needs is own outlet as it charges on 15VDC, and if it is to be used as a plugged-in stationary speaker for any length of time, know that the DC power and line in ports are hidden behind a waterproof door that will need to remain dangling, which could be an eye sore. Speaking of that waterproof door, it is very *very* tight, I'd recommend some spray on silicon lube (like you would use on car door seals to keep them from freezing in winter) to make it easier to open, as constantly prying it open against the rear speaker grille may eventually lead to cosmetic damage.

Loud sound!

Bought this to use during training in a basketball gym, and was worried it wouldn't be loud enough. It is! It is more than loud enough for our group to all hear during warmups and cool downs. Connecting via Bluetooth easy. Not the best connection via my Macbook Pro, easily disconnects...but with my iPhone, no issues.

Good sound!!!!

I have had it for 4 months so far very impressed!! I looked for 6 months before buying this Sony xb3 , I looked at Bose yes Bose sounded good but Sony xb3 sounded as good for almost 100 less , also the Sony xb3 has a lot longer battery life approx 24hr to Bose 12 hrs. Strongly recommend this Bluetooth speaker.

So far, so great...

Was looking for something small with good sound, under [price]. I think I found exactly what I was looking for, great sound and easy to use. Its a bit heavier than I expected, hope that means it's a more ruggeed than the lighter plastic models.
