If only It Would STAY On

First of all, if you expect any kind of bass from a speaker this small, you must leave the volume down so that it doesn't over-vibrate the unit and produce distortion from over-modulation. A MAJOR ANNOYANCE... This speaker has a built in PERMANENT auto-off feature that cannot be disabled. As a result of this, the speaker is ALWAYS turning itself off after only what seems to be no more than a few minutes of non-use. Then when it is turned on again to watch a Youtube video, the video has already begun and half the introduction is already over by the time this unit takes a couple of the first critical seconds of the introduction to come back on. I even phone Sony technical support to find out how to turn this annoying feature OFF just to find out that they supplied absolutely NO options. When I turn a device on, I want to decide when the device should be shut off. I've noticed that Sony has done this with other audio products too. Too Bad - what a waste.

SRS-X55

The auto power off function is such a pain. totally lack of intelligence of Sony designers to have this feature with out overriding it, This feature serves no purpose other to have you curse out loud pull out you hair when you have to power on the speaker repetitively through out the day because there where no audio activity for 15 min. For this reason alone I do not recommend this SonySRS-X55 speaker .

Great Bluetooth Speaker

I've been using daily at work on construction site. It has the best sound 6" from a wall. It has a nice base punch and clear vocals. Lots of volume even over 4 Drywall screw guns. My workers turn it down from time to time as I like it loud. Battery life is ok, but only 6 hours Max on full volume; so I have to keep the charger with me. I disabled the phone part as everyone told me it was too hard to hear me when I was not right next to the speaker. Other small gripe is when I walk to far from the device it drops bluetooth and it wont auto reconnect until I choose it from my bluetooth phone menu. For me, the issues are minor, the sound is amazing; I would buy this again.

great sound quality

I bought this a few months ago. I love the sound quality, and I can take it with me to each room that I'm working. pairs with phones and tablets really easily or you can use it as a main speaker on your desktop/laptop. I recommend it.

Great Speaker

I bought this speaker for my husband for his birthday. I thought he would really like it, and he LOVES it. Really great sound quality and easy to connect to our phones. We do wish there was some easy way to connect back and fourth between our two phones without one of us having to turn our blue tooth off and reconnect every time...my only other complaint is that it would be great if this speaker came with some sort of case to make sure when we take it places it doesn't get ruined.

Perfect small speaker with big sound

Bought this for the camper van. This stereo speaker produces clear well rounded audio. When turned all the way up the bass did distort. This was easily fixed by changing the equalization on my iPhone. The bluetooth syncing is very quick and easy. I wish the plug in the back didn't have to stick out so far. I am really happy with this speaker.

Great portable sound

I tried this unit out in the States before I bought one in Canada. The weird thing is, the model above this sounds like crud. This is the 'mid-line' model and it sounds fantastic. The speakers are truly portable with a great sounding Bluetooth connection. You can turn a bit less bass on with the "sound" button (I recommend this) and there is even a speaker phone option. What really sets this apart from many of similar models is the ability to charge your phone whilst you listen. Also, the battery on its own is pretty long lasting. It is the type of speaker where I can't really remember 'the last time' I charged it up. I use it daily since I got it and only had to charge it once past the box opening. If you need something that is mid-range for price and sounds great, then this is your model. Like I said, it beats the higher model in Sony's line hands down.

Great Sound, Great Bass, Even Better On Sale

Love the SRSX55B! Amazing sound. Hard to believe the sound and bass that comes out of this simple box design. I looked at the competition and various models as well as other reviews and decided this was the one for me. On sale, this is the best bang for the buck - or best boom! It feels like a very solid unit but I can't comment on the quality as I have only had it for a few weeks. You won't go wrong with this speaker. Highly recommend.

Great Bass in a Small Package

Was looking for a bluetooth connected speaker for our sitting area at home and wanted one with a little more 'umph' (bass) than most of the others. This one fit the bill and then some ... simple setup, great price and solid sound. Recommended !!

Great Bluetooth Speaker With Powerful Sound

I bought this bluetooth speaker on Boxing Day and was not expecting to be nearly as impressed as I was. It has great sound for it's little size, packs a great punch and is still portable enough to switch to different rooms in my house. I am in love with this speaker!

Excellent Sound

Its a great value compared to some other in the same class. I bought during Boxing Week sale so the price was even discounted. I like the sound quality and clarity and it is really light to move around. Easy to configure with all Mobile and tablet devices. The one feature missing is ability to disconnect another device and play yours.

Amazing sound

I bought this after reading all the reviews, and I have to agree, this is an awesome bluetooth speaker. The bass on this is phenomenal, I'm listening to some bass heavy tracks in my apartment and I'm slightly worried I will be getting a noise complaint anytime soon. Easy to setup, great sounds, no non-sense design, brilliant!

After using one year, IT'S NOT WORKING

I like its design so bought it. The sound quality is very nice and I used it for less than one year. Actually, I didn't listen to it very often because I don't want to bother my neighbour. I believe that it has been used less than 20 times. But now, it is not working. It still can connect to my walkman and iPhone but it can't play sound. I won't suggest this product.

AMAZING SOUND AND VALUE

The sound on this is Amazing and so is the Value! It is really bassy sounding. When turned up loud full there is no distortion. The subwoofer output automatically raises and lowers depending on the song or volume. This helps so when you fully blare this speaker, which you can and will, the woofer and speakers do not blow. The touch sensitive display is also user friendly and responsible and the bluetooth has very good, seamless connection.

Very impressed

I am truly impressed with the sound quality from this speaker. I tried the SRSX33 as well but this was an obvious winner. The sound is awesome, absolutely awesome. I would compare it to much more expensive units from the likes of Bose. Highs, mids and lows are all very clear and crisp. Very, very good. Highly recommend.

Some Big Issues With This

I got the X55 as a gift this past Christmas and was very happy with it out of the box. The sound is great (when plugged in to a power supply) , bass was strong and the volume was loud. However once you use the device on battery mode the volume takes a big dip. The NFC capabilities are neat with the tap to pair however many times the tap to pair would prove difficult for both Apple / Adroid and Blackberry devices needed 3 or 4 taps and resetting the unit ... not as convenient as you would want this feature to be. The two final issues are huge deal breakers for me. 1) - Due to the devices impressive BASS the unit itself moves around ever so slightly and after about half an hour of use the unit can move itself about 6 inches in any direction on a flat surface the result on battery mode was the device falling off my book shelf and hitting the floor damaging the unit. This has happened when plugged in too. Finally reason 2 for passing on this unit is the touch sensitive buttons on the top of the unit stop working after a short period of time. I thought his was only on my unit since it smashed and hit the floor a few times but doing a quick google search i found this to be a very common issue with the unit. In closing this is a great sounding unit with great bass when plugged in. However the battery performance is about half of what you get when plugged in. The risk of the unit falling off the shelf is very real and the top buttons are very hit and miss with buggy NFC performance.

Excellent Sound Quality!

I've recently purchased several portable speakers and after taking them home to discover their poor sound quality I returned all of them. Before purchasing the SRS-X55 i did my research online and found many people raving about it. Brought it home and I have to say I am very impressed! Sound quality is superb and the small package packs a big punch - am easily able to listen to great quality music in the backyard while I BBQ. I would easily recommend this product to anyone looking for a portable speaker with good sound and bass. No distortion whatsoever

Good little speaker!

I bought this after reading reviews of the previous SRSX5 - Wanted something with decent battery life, that sounded great. This pretty much foots the bill! Great bass on it and the sound is clear even when turned up to full volume.

HotShotMedic

Last year I purchased the X5 Bluetooth speaker and while it provided excellent sound and good features, turning the volume up high caused a strange, wobbling volume distortion. Usually using it outside means you have to turn it up to get the sound to carry further, this is when I noticed the volume distortion the most. With the X55 this phenomenon has been fixed, the internal DSP keeps the bass in check so as not to damage the drivers but the volume goes very high with no noticeable dips or distortion. Additionally this revision has improved the sound and bass quite a bit! It has a fuller sound than the Bose Soundlink Mini which I've owned for over a year now, the mids are much more forward than the Bose and adds a new dimension to my music on the go. The bass also trumps the Soundlink Mini which has been a long time coming for speakers in this price range. An excellent job by Sony to improve this speaker!
