- Iconic unique design speaker- February 17, 2022
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a luxury item , it should be considered as a design piece of technology, and in a way as an art piece.I cant wait to position it at Christmas to enhance the decorations in my house, and if I am careful, to take it outside in the evenings in summer to use as a romantic light and speaker to listen to music and audible books The quality of the sound reproduction is remarkable . I have added bass boost from the Sony app , and the quality is superb , the volume capability is extremely surprising and more than adequate, there is no distortion when playing any music type This is an expensive item to be sure , and could be called form over function, but.. who doesn’t like cool things , be they clothing , or cars , and this is extremely cool. As an accent light it is very good , couldn’t read by it , but wouldn’t want to . As a Bluetooth speaker it is excellent, combined it is one of a kind Battery life is about 8 hours , longer depending on volume and light type and intensity selected Recharging is quick too The colour is a neutral silver , and I think could be improved if it was matt black , but that is a subjective preferenceYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Small Stature, Large Sound- October 3, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really wasn’t sure what to expect because I haven’t seen this or any previous versions displayed anywhere. Packaging gives the appearance of a larger unit than it actually is. It was super easy to set up. Just charge the unit and sync your devices bluetooth and you’re ready to go. So anytime you turn on the unit, it should auto sync to your device and play whatever is playing. Just beware that if you open a voice text or play a video on your device, everyone will be able to hear it. So you have to disconnect from the sync to go back to private. It’s a beautiful piece and that’s where I believe it shines. It’s more of an aesthetics type of speaker but I can’t deny that for such a small speaker, the bass response is pretty darn good. For its size, the sound is clear, responsive, and does fill the room to an extent. If you have a large open space, It’s still effective, however having another one on the opposite side would be great. It has the ability to link to compatible Sony speakers. The highs, mids and lows are great. I truly can’t complain about the sound. Sony hit the mark on that note. I wouldn’t go playing heavy metal music or anything similar on this device. That’s just my opinion. I would save that music for one of their larger speakers. But for me it sounded best with Smooth Jazz, oldies, classics, earlier to mid hip hop, pop, and other similar genres. Surprisingly enough, for its stature, the base of the unit is heavy. Which I like, so that way it’s much harder to tip over around normal instances, such as bumping into furniture moving to another location, handling when in operation and even kids. The light feature is cool, but slightly gimmicky. It’s the easiest to operate as it’s a touch feature, instead of pressing like the other buttons. You can slide your finger left or right to change intensity. Hold your finger on it to change flicker settings. I was most excited about the light music sync feature but i don’t think it actually works. I spent way too much time trying to get that to work. The light never flicked to the beat of my music. It is a nice soft campfire-ish light. It won’t light the house but this would be amazing to have if the lights ever go out. Something to note is that Sony is etched into glass so placement is important when close to walls and lit at night. You shouldn’t have the back of unit facing front anyways but I figured I should mention it. There are a few missed opportunities to make this an even better speaker… There are NO Play, Pause, Skip, Go Back buttons. Which I get because we can use our phone. However, not everyone will be attached to their phone while operating the device once they choose and set their music. If you put your phone down and are doing other activities and a song or ad comes on that you would like to skip, you have no choice but to locate your phone instead of touching the unit itself if you’re nearby. Another huge disadvantage is it is not a smart device. For a speaker with this price point it should be smart, especially if there’s lack of control buttons. I would prefer to speak to my assistant and control my music that way. “Hey _____, skip song.” There is an app that can be used alongside the speaker but I don’t see myself using it much. You are able to adjust a few things with the speaker. It’s not needed to operate. We don’t need to answer calls from this. They have a phone button but no play and pause. That baffled me. Once again, I would have to walk up to it to answer it. The buttons are located on the backside. You have to turn or pick up the unit to press the button to answer. I don’t see this feature being of much use to most people, unless it’s placed in the middle of a coffee table, nightstand or side table. It would be great to be able to control the music from my phone, but still able to use my phone to watch a quick video or listen to a message or have a call without it interrupting or broadcasting on the device. That forces me to disconnect the Bluetooth connection. Also, I have to turn on/off the unit manually not just to conserve battery, but anytime I want to listen on this device. I have other speakers I never have to touch, unless to charge, I can just play a song anytime and cast it to certain speakers. I never have to disconnect from them. I’m able to have calls and do other things on my phone without interruption. This should be able to do this. For visuals I like that the buttons are placed on the rear of the unit. However, this isn’t a speaker you want to handle all of the time. The fragile glass makes it more of a decorative piece, we shouldn’t have to constantly touch/move to operate. Implementing some sort of tap commands or feature for operating would’ve been great, IMO. The best use for this speaker is for more relaxed vibes. Saturday or Sunday mornings, eating with your beau or yourself, romantic evening were this is unobtrusive and disappears into the background. This is not a party speaker. I listed several things that should be addressed or even considered for their next release, but even with those drawbacks, I still believe it deserves 4 stars. It’s a darn good speaker. It’s loud and audible. Each sound and note is clear. The added light is a bonus, especially in dark situations. It’s a set the mood speaker. It’s easy to use. It disappears into your surroundings and it’s a great convo piece, that produces amazing 360 degree sound. I like how speakers no longer have to be a big black rectangle oddly placed, taking up space in a room. I appreciate these new speaker designs that are more like art, in a sense, or decorative accessories that seamlessly fall into place.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unusual Glass Speaker with Great HD Sound- October 6, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The LSPX-S3 Glass Sound Speaker is unusually styled for the higher end audience. Though I am not an audiophile, I find the sound produced by this glass speaker to be crisp, clear and pleasing. I have tried it Bluetooth connected to my television, stereo and computer and have witnessed the 360 degree, high definition surround sound it produces with the LDAC codec. The unusual addition of a LED lantern-type light with Candelight mode adds ambiance to a dimly lit room. Very nice.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Modern day speaker- September 30, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So you are looking for a modern day piece of art to add to your home collection? You also need a good Bluetooth speaker? Well here you go! The design is what draws people's attention but the surprise comes when you start playing music and then you just amaze your guests. Now for being a "not your ordinary wireless speaker" this thing plays music and sounds pretty good. I'm not a huge audiophile but the way you can hear voice and beats clearly is what wows me. For me, the sweet spot is at about 65 or 80 percent loudness. The bass is pretty good but still weird that the sound travels through glass. The ambient, adjustable, candle like light is a neat feature that again draws attention to your modern decorative speaker.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tiny device delivering crafted experience- September 26, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Review of Sony LSPX-S3 The tiny speaker made of sturdy metal frame accented with glass tube comes with crafted sound level. As small it is, its crisp sound but filling the space sound is noticeably can feel the crafted work behind the scene to put together high quality hardware and software. With medium level of volume can feel how it fill the space giving the feeling of surrounded. Naturally this is in the context of small speaker hence it has its own limit. But it doesn’t feel short. Moreover when it is used with different modes of lights and effects. Light effect are from flickering paired to music or stable. Its effect is toward the candle light but bit more brighter would say. Its control is done via Sony Music Center App for light effect and sound control. What found interestingly curious of the control of volume, the max volume is 31 as reaching to the max. It is the number Sony has used to indicate the maximum level that seems interesting. To remark on bluetooth, it support some of standard and profiles, as per extract from its manual (https://helpguide.sony.net/speaker/lspx-s3/v1/en/contents/TP1000430936.html)l: -Supported BLUETOOTH version: BLUETOOTH standard, version 5.0 -Supported BLUETOOTH profiles: —A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile): Enables transmission and reception of high-quality music contents. —AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile): Enables volume adjustment and operations to play/pause music and skip to the beginning of the next/current track. —HSP (Headset Profile)*: Enables phone call making and mobile phone operations. —HFP (Hands-free Profile)*: Enables hands-free phone call making and mobile phone operations. Details like pairing, using application its straight forward, not much to describe. The only use case observation is where its control of volume is placed that takes some guess work although the same can be controlled with volume of the mobile device. The volume control is placed on the bottom right side with Bluettooth connection indicator icon. The speaker for what is is deliver great experience and invite to the moment more you use, It feels as one of nice to have gadget if its price is not an issue.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
