Fantastic speaker - but beware of pairing

One on its own, the SRS-XB2 is a fantastic speaker and deserves five stars. Easy to setup. Great sound thanks to the Extra Bass. Easily fills a room or yard with sound. Great that it remembers its Bluetooth connection. Love that fact that with my Samsung tablet, all I do is turn on the speaker and, if it was previously in a playlist, the speaker will wake up the tablet and the playlist resumes playing. How easy is that!! But I only recommend one SRS-XB2. I bought two for the pairing capability, but that's the weak point. The buttons for pairing are finicky and difficult. Once paired, the sound is great. Adjust volume on one speaker adjusts both. Turning off one speaker turns off both. But the signal range for pairing is less than bluetooth. Need to keep the two speakers within about 15-20 feet with line of sight. Or about 6 feet if in separate rooms. And pairing doesn't remember as well as bluetooth. Once paired, you have to turn both speakers on separately, within 60 seconds of each other, else the pairing gets dropped. Then you're back to the fiddly buttons to re-pair them. So thoughts of a "whole home stereo" with speakers in separate rooms, or one inside and one in the yard didn't pan out as expected.

Amazing sound

I love love love this speaker. Size is perfect, weight is perfect, sound is amazing, the bass booster packs a punch, and the set up was super easy. The battery last a long time. So far I have used the speaker at my home, on my deck, in my car and I've also brought it to my parents place. I've also used it as my phone when calls have come in while in use. To date it meets all my needs and then some. Very good price for the value!!!!!!!

Excellent speaker

This speaker is loud, has good quality sound, and the bluetooth aspect actually works at a fair distance (I've tried 30ft away and no stuttering). I think the charge in mine lasts 12-16 hours, and it charged up in a couple of hours. I've used this speaker in the bathroom while I took a bath/shower and didn't have any problems with it. The extra bass option is noticable and is a nice touch. It does have volume control buttons, which is great because some songs are louder than others. The only thing more I could want is to be able to change the song when using bluetooth.

Bang for the buck

What an amazing speaker. Forget about Monster or Bose because nothing compare to the SRS-XB2. Even in the store, i got a few people come to see what was making that great bass and they were surprised at the volume and sound coming from such a small speaker. Will be hard for others to compete at this price point. The only drawback is the SHORT one year warranty. This could be one of the contributing factors in the lower pricing. Come on Sony!

Great speaker

Great Speaker

The speaker is really worth its price, the sound quality is great. This is the first wireless bluetooth speaker I've bought, so I don't have too much experience, but I really like this product. It makes listening to music much more enjoyable.

Fantastic product, especially for its very reasonable price

Have had this for a few weeks now, use it nearly every day. Battery lasts a long time. Sound quality is great, and fantastic volume for such a small speaker. Obviously portable. Splash-proof (though I won't be testing that on purpose!). Easy to pair with my phone to play music. Very happy with it.

Good value

So far so good. Easy connect and set up. Didn't want to spend a lot of money with young kids in the house. Good value although noticeably not as good as others I have experienced.

Good Speaker

This speaker has nice sound quality. The Extra Base isn't very impressive however.

Not Bad

Good value, good sound , better if you keep the bass boost off as this feature adds a bit of distortion. I have two playing separate channels and it is easy to set up.

Very Good Product

I bought on user reviews and have not been disappointed. One of best mini speakers I have listened to. Instructions advise that two speakers can be set up for stereo. Seriously considering doing so.

good value

I purchased when it's sale for half price and with that amount of the money, it is a very good return on the quality. Overall, the product has good quality and I love the red color I ordered. easy to pair with other devices.

All about that BASS

How can so much sound, and bass, come from such a small speaker? My roommate complains when I listen at 50% volume. Very satisfied with my purchase. Sony is tried tested and true.

Great sound and a great price with portability too!

I bought this unit on sale thinking I'd use it in my shop. Forget it, it stays in the house! The sound quality for the size is great and I can move it from room to room for great background music. I'll still keep my regular system but this is just what I needed for individual room music. The battery life is amazing. I've charged it once and played it for over 24 hrs so far. The Bluetooth range is OK, skipping out at about 10 meters in a wood construction house.

Sony SRS XB2 Nice!

I bought this speaker on sale and considering it's price, this speaker sounds really good. it is also loud enough considering it's really small size. The sound quality is balanced, it sounds better than some of the more expensive ones. I would recommend this product.

Great little portable speaker

The sound and quality is great and the fact that you can play your DVD player through it as well to increase to on films is great. We bought two and they can be used as speakers which unique and the fact they are portable is fab. Only downside is that it does not have a battery indicator but other than that, we would definitely recommend you buy one.
