Amazing sound for such a small size. Very good quality and waterproof.

I own other similar size speaker of a different brand, but i like this sony speaker much more. It’s light, waterproof and has a good battery life. The sound is quite good, there highs and mids with some decent (for it’s size) bass. I was actually surprised how loud it can get. It connects to my android 8 phone using ldac codec, which should in theory improve sound quality. I don’t really care about the party lights function, i think it’s a gimmick.

This little speaker packs a punch and has a great sound. Base is really good along with clear vocals. I use it at work and alot of my work colleagues have commented on its great sound . Definitely buy if you want a great sounding speaker.

Sony SRS-XB21 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass and 12-Hour Battery Life – Black : I work in a small closed warehouse 5 days a week and bring this with me, really changes the atmosphere with its great quality.

Small, compact with incredible sound.

I bought this from warehouse deals and i’m quite impressed of the power this tiny speaker can deliver. Sound is clear and couldn’t be more happy for the money i payed.

Good sound and great quality.

I received this today and am most impressed with the build quality, sound and ease of connectivity. Having just had a jam heavy metal fail on me after less than a year, i thought i’d buy from a proper electronics company. I’ve only played it for half an hour or so so cannot comment on battery life yet. I can however confirm that the sound quality is very good. Playing my usual test-pieces that verify breadth of sound stage, frequency response etc. I can confirm that this is a little gem. If you’re looking for a bt speaker , this is the one to buy.

Great speaker and can handle being bumped and sand on the beach.

Picked this up from amazon treasure truck and was very impressed on how quickly you can pair this using nfc. Just one tap and you’re ready to go. If you want a speaker to use in the shower buy this very easy to use and change songs :).

Sound message eg low battery. Auto connection with mobile ,love the bass sound.

Great to have at a party and surprisingly loud.

Very good sound, easy to connect and operate. Sound is powerful enought to fill room up to 30m2. Additionally, this speaker is linkable to others (same model), possible make chain consisting of several speakers (up to 50). I have 2 (bought separately from different countries) and have no problem with connecting ang linking. Thanks to certain waterproofnes this speaker is usable outdoors and in bath/showerroom. Price and quality is well balanced, i test in store other products with similar price (jbl for example) and chose sony – better sound and lower price.

Great product, second one we’ve bought as the first one is so good.

I got this on prime day for £50 so that makes a difference. But i liked it so much i went and brought another so i could link them up. I had a couple of bluetooth speakers before but this blows it away. Easily pairable, lots of features like bluetooth, add another speaker, 3. Sound quality is really good, impressed, good bass and good mids. Once you go to max volume it does get distorted but its loud enough that you don’t need to go to it. Would recommend once it goes back on sale.

I purchased this to save space on my desk, and to eliminate the cables of a previous 2:1 speaker system. I just wanted something small and wireless to play background music whilst i’m using my mac. Advantages:a) its small and compactb) easy to setupc) portabled) looks goodhowever it does have some issues that i would like to mention. When using this via bluetooth with my mac the audio is distorted even on a low volume, its much better however when i connect it to my samsung tablet or galaxy smartphone. Even then you can notice the quality decreasing at mid to high volume so it is a bit disappointing, i usually expect better with sony audio equipment. The battery doesn’t last as long as advertised, so i have it hard connected to my mac mini via usb. Due to poor audio over bluetooth with my mac i have it connected to the headphone jack which seems to improve things, but this is not ideal since i wanted to go wireless. So it’s quite difficult to recommend from my point of view, but i will keep it.

Sturdy, good battery life and great sound.

This speaker is a lovely bright colour. Out of the box it is easy to set up and get going. My iphone recognised it easily and quickly and it paired up easily. In terms of sound – it is good for what we are using it for. That is on the garden table whilst having a bbq or glass of wine outside with friends. It can get pretty loud if you want it to. It doesn’t have huge amounts of depth or richness – but don’t get me wrong – the sound is perfectly good and it does sound good. As an everyday speaker which is pretty rugged and strong this is a good choice.

This is a great product in every sense, loud, great outdoors to use and you can hook up more of the same product.

    I have an older sony bluetooth speaker which was a similar price a few years ago and it has a better sound (base) but pretty good. Flashing lights are annoying in my opinion but that could be my age.

    Really good sound and easy to use (which was important in difficult circumstances – music for my dad’s funeral, when i had other things on my mind).

    Used this with our sports team in the changing room, initially thought it was great, but after playing for 30 minutes on loud, the battery dies completely and it’s reduced to a sound level that would be barely audible if in a library.

    • Bought this as a present for my sister who wanted a bluetooth speaker. I have subsequently heard it myself and was very impressed by the sound (and i’m pretty fussy about these things) seems like it has been reliably working with her iphone.

    • Very easy to use but the advertised battery life is a lie, i can only get 70 minutes max.
      • For the purpose bought it half price on truck no faults only thank you amazon.

    I got this speaker to use wth my samsung tab 3s and laptop. Unofrtunatley it doesn’t connect to either, just my phone. I have tried everywhere on the internet to find out why but i’m unable to get why my phone bluetooth v7. 4 can see it and everything else cannot (bluetooth v8. 0 laptop and tablet) is this a problem. Well yes if you want to use the waterproof feature. Because otherwise you have to open the back to use the audio jack, thus exposing to moisture. Hope this helps, all sony would have to do me thinks is update the speakers firmware (which i also couldn’t find).

    So much better than the smaller models. Easy pairing with phone/tablet. The granddaughter enjoyed watching the lights, and playing the ‘drums’.

    I personally find the party booster a bit pointless and buying the speaker i thought that would be like an extra bass effect but instead you can tap the speaker for different sound effects which reminds me a bit of a kids music set. But you dont have to use this function donit doesnt affect the quality of the experience.
