Sony SRS-XB10 Compact Portable Wireless Speaker : Should you buy?? Ye why not ;)

I like that this speaker is compact, lightweight and pairs instantly with my iphone 8. I am disappointed with the sound quality: i think it has too much bass, and the high pitched sounds are muffled. Its like there is a towel on top of the speaker that does not allow the sound to go through. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change any sound settings in the speaker.

Really easy to set up and use but quick setup instructions don’t tell you how to pair a second device. Need to download full instructions that tell you to press and hold the on/off until you hear a beep and the pairing light starts rapid flash. You can then pair a new device.

Love this – great sound from a mini speaker and the sound very clear too on a highest volume. I love sony products, my tv, dvd players, hi fi, digital camera. All bought from sony and no disappointments so far.

Maybe should have checked the dimensions of the product prior to buying, but i’m glad i didn’t because it’s turned out to be a brilliant speaker & i probably wouldn’t have gone for it had i known how small it was. But, great sound quality & i’m very happy with the product.

One of the best small speakers i’ve heard, and i have got ones much more expensive. Powerful and natural, at a great price.

Good deep sounds, very natural and lasts very long before recharge. Only issue is how i can’t connect two devices at once.

Excellent sound quality for the size and price. We use it in a kitchen while we work, where the restaurant we work has loud music, and when we use it we can only listen the music we want to play. We have tried other brands as well, but the specific one has the best sound quality.

My new fav – i take this everywhere – parents have even purchased one. Great sound very handy great charge. I now use it with my projector for movies it’s great.

This is a great speaker with superb sound quality. It’s built well and looks as though it will take some knocks and bumps. Sounds great at high volume with no distortion, sounds great at lower volumes too. I bought this purely for our hols and it hasn’t let me down. Easy to set up bluetooth, i have it connected to my iphone 6, flawless. Been using it for best part of week now with no problems. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for this type of speaker.

This speaker is awesome, so much bass, power and volume from such a small device, definitely recommend. Had up and running within seconds.

Very easy to set up and use and the battery lasts for a long time. Sound quality is good and for the size, and it has a decent amount of bass. Although i note where you position the speaker can change the sound quality quite a bit.

I bought a new kindle fire as my old one was playing up but with the volume at maximum i could hardly hear my music when i was in the shower so i bought this speaker after reading a review in pc mag. I am thoroughly satisfied with it. The sound quality is excellent and pairing it to my kindle was very easy.

Deep bass, crisp sound really portable, and giving a better sound than most 20 watt to 40 watt same competition speakers on amazon. Sadly i returned mine because it was giving a bit distort the sound. And i am one of those sound quality nurds. However, if i have to buy again it will be this product.

I have two of these now and took them on holiday ,nice to able to hook them up in stereo i. Have one for the left channel and have the other for the right channel, and they link together wirelessly. Battery life is excellent, and sound qaulity is very good for such a small speaker.

The quality of sound from this speaker is exceptional. You can even feel it vibrating if you touch it. The controls are so very easy to use and bluetooths itself up without any fuss.

Quite basey and clear considering their size. Easy to pair with a second one. Would recommend for £30-40. But maybe not any more expensive.

The sound quality from such a small unit is incredible. Very loud and incredibly easy to use. Has a jack input as well as the bluetooth connection.

Really impressive full, clear sound given its size and the build quality is great. Pairing it with a bluetooth device is super easy too. Plus i also read that you can add an extra one and have stereo sound.

Perfect as i expecteddelivered on timeexcellent sound box with very very good quality and base that you cant believe is coming out of that little thing .

Got this for my 17 year old who is really into music. Really worth paying a bit more than the cheaper speakers (which i also have) to get a much better sound. He’s really impressed with it after a few weeks.

Present for my brother and he really likes it. The sound is very good for such a small speaker.

    This is a well-made, high-quality product, and is easy to set up and use. Overall sound quality is good, but the clarity of the top range is disappointing. However, i am an audiophile, listening to music mostly on cds, so if you’re used to listening to lower-quality compressed file formats, such as mp3s, you may not notice the difference.

    • Sound quality even worse than my 20punds anker one. Beautiful design but the skin easy to stick on dust.

    • The base is amazing for such a small item. The range is not as good as i thought it would be but good for the price.

    These little sony bluetooth speakers are good for those on a budget,or who like going abroad on holiday where you can’t pack big speakers in hand or main luggage. Plus you wouldn’t have to worry about the weight restrictions because these speakers are quite lightweight so no problem’s there. For the size and price these speakers sound pretty good. They do get a little distorted at the max volume and they are not overly loud. But at this price point you can’t complain to much. I got to of these and paired them together in stereo mode which was very easy to do, and yes they sound much better like that. One playing the left channel and the other the right. When you turn off one of these speakers it automatically turn off the other one as well. Over all not bad speakers for price of 36 pounds. Ok they may be no where near in the same league of speakers such like the bose”s and jbl, but these speakers cost a lot more money, and would you want the risk of losing these type of speakers abroad on holiday.

  16. Super impressed with this little gem. Pretty compact at the size of a small tin of beans. Sounds quality and volume for its size is amazing. Just bought a second item as it can be linked together to act in stereo. It really is very good indeed.

    • Bought two of these for a bit of stereo whilst messing around on the laptop. They do the job, connection can drop out if you use multiple operating systems, but nothing that can’t be fixed quickly.

    This is a good first wireless speaker. The finish is to a good quality and is highly durable. The sound quality and volume could be better, however.
