Sony GTK-XB60 High Power One Box Music System – Typical quality.

Great speaker, bought another so i can have one at each end of the room, would highly recommend.

Which pleased my 14 year old immenselyeasy to set up, brilliant light displays easy to control via phone or speaker1 very happy sonthank you.

I got a chance to try this speaker with its big brother, the xb90. The first thing to say is that linking them up wirelessly into a ‘party chain’ so that i streamed music through both speakers in separate rooms which was great. Perfect for a house party or to provide great sound in a larger venue. Though this is the little brother to the xb90 it still packs a powerful audio punch. The sound is great, even at high volume and the bass boost button adds even more to those lower tones. This has a built in battery that can last up to 14 rather than 16 hours but that still seems plenty to me. And the smaller size of it compared to the xb90 might make it a more practical (and considerably cheaper) option for many. It shares all the other great qualities of its sibling. Solid, rugged build quality. Horizontal or vertical standing. Here are the specifications for the Sony GTK-XB60 High Power One Box Music System:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Extra Bass technology enhances deep, punchy bass sound
  • Up to 14 hour battery life to soundtrack your night
  • Create an ideal atmosphere with line, strobe and speaker lighting that change colour and sync with the beat
  • Flexible layout, with stereo sound in horizontal and vertical setting
  • Bluetooth for wireless music streaming via one touch listening via NFC and Wireless Party Chain to connect up to 10 2017 Extra Bass wireless party speakers together for synchronised sound and lighting

Bought for a house party, used with a few other smaller sony speakers. Used this to provide the base and the others to provide the sound. Took a while to work out how to link but once done very effective especially with the line out function still working.

Battery life is very good last for about 8 hours on a beach. Speaker design is very good also – don’t need to hide it in closed or under the bed. Bought it as a gift but now i want one.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Typical Sony quality.
  • Superb Sony Speaker
  • Excellent product Very loud

Bought this for my eldest son for his birthday. He seems to be pleased with it.

This is hands down the best bluetooth speaker out there. A few imperfections, but very nearly perfect. Reminds me of the old megabass boomboxes of the 80’s. Note that there are two volume controls, bluetooth volume from your phone, and another from the speaker. When both are maxed out then it does get muddy, but honestly you’re not going to listen to it that loud as you’ll soon have a headache. You can plug into line-in, but that won’t be nearly as loud. Probably not, but that’s not the intended purpose. This is truly portable, and sounds great replaying phone quality music.

Very loud and portable, marks very easily tho.

Review for sony gtk-xb60this is a fantastic speaker worthy of 6 stars (if i could). While it is hard to get excited about a speaker, i know, this one is worth it. The sound quality alone is so impressive from low volume to massively loud top end. The bass is punchy at high volumes (the extra bass) and literally hits you both hearing it and feeling it at your stomach while standing in front of it. There isn’t another speaker in the house that can achieve this. There is a button that mutes the beastly bass and tames it for any early morning or late evening listening pleasures, but generally i preferred it on. The overall sound quality is stunning and is uber clear but it does distort at the final top end volume, which is really really loud and not something you would probably have turned up often if at all. The sound manages to be both elegant and beastly depending what features you have set (extra bass) and i don’t have a speaker in the house that can compete. The closest is a quality wifi speaker which this speaker just bested with ease. When at near full volume it very much reminds me of nightclubs where the bass is enough to brutalise your ears.

This is a large speaker, the size of r2d2, and it comes with a correspondingly huge sound. I’d recommend downloading the application as you can control the sound and do things like turn off the lights (which are a bit weak. ) pairing by bluetooth worked straight away, as expected, and the sound from an ipod was loud and clear. I also plugged it into a record player using the supplied leads and got a room filling sound. Design wise it’s not great, and the lights are pathetic, but it’s a great speaker for parties or setting up outside during summer.

This was a gift for my son’s birthday. Looks and feels a substantial bit of kit.

Incredible sound with any style of music you decide to play. Apart from maybe a more easily said model name, there isn’t much negative feedback on this product.

99 on ‘deal of the day’ offer and for that much is worth every penny. Nice and solid build, heavy but easy to carry with handles both sides. Powerful and sound quality is ok for what you pay. I think is naive to compare the quality of the sound with bose (like some other guy did) – you get what you pay for. It is a descent speaker, perfect for garden parties and other small gatherings.

Expensive for what’s out there, but yet again sony impress on me the value of paying for quality. Bass is deep and meaningful. Not just loud but picks up the subtle interlocking bass tones in most modern music. Tried out with xx, gorillaz, some hip-hop, 90s nu rock and some led zep. As good as listening on good quality headphones for really picking out the details in the bass performance. Not as good on the rest of the range (slightly limp guitar solos, unimpressed by reproduction of voices) but that’s allowable as it would be expected to be used in conjunction with other speakers for full range performance. Used with an app so your controller is your phone or tablet or aux lead. Aesthetically it’s a compromise. It’s not meant for the home as a party speaker meaning it’s more suited for smaller events with its built in lights. I would have preferred more classical stylish lines but it’s not in any way displeasing to look at you may get tired of the flashing lights on.

 sony’s ‘(gtk-xb60) high power one box music system’ is a bit of a mouthful, but i’ve certainly been quite surprised with this, straight out of the box. I’ve only had the unit up and running since friday, so i intend to return and update this review, once i’ve had more time with it). It’s a sizeable / substantial piece of kit, but not so big that you can’t actually do anything with it. ) 22′ / 56cm x 10′ / 26cm x 10-11′ / 27cm (measuring the front, width / height, then the depth), with a fair amount of weight to it. The most immediate advantage of the design is that it can be orientated either upright (‘portrait’) or on it’s side (‘landscape’), and with the lift / carry handles that are integrated into the case design, you’re never left to scrabble around when trying to move it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the unit was shipped / delivered with a charge in the battery, so the unit was up in running almost immediately from getting it unpacked (there’s the usual multi-lingual instructions, warranty information and uk power cable in the box). On powering up, the unit defaults to looking for a bluetooth source (it’ll appear as ‘gtk-xb60’) and paired immediately with my phone.

Great sound and great product.

Even though it seems to distort the sound in the high range and extra base but if you lower the volume just a little and believe me its still loud enough and the sound is very very good , i bought 2 and linked them and the sound is again very good , the light show is great and there are apps out there that can help you up the settings to your own preferences all in all i think they are real value for money at the bonus price well worth the try . I`l definitely be buying the grandkids a couple that im sure they will be delighted with , hope this helps you in a little way .

This is a great speaker for a party, however the sound quality and clarity compared to a bose sound dock is some way off. The bass is great and the light show from the speaker is a great added feature and went down a treat at my daughters 5th birthday and nye party. However for those that like their sound quality, rather than quantity this is not the speaker for you. . I have however party chain linked this to my bose sound dock and the two combined provide a great balance of bass and treble. Battery makes this very flexible and i suspect it will be venturing out into the garden over the summer (with the bose linked to it).

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.

Sony SRS-XB10 Compact Portable Wireless Speaker – Great for many locations.

For a speaker this compact the sound is nice and clear,especially if the volume isn’t cranked too far. It has a good solid feel to it as well. It could do with a bit more bass but given the size it’s perfectly acceptable. It’s a bit annoying that it can’t be paired with two devices at once without switching off the bluetooth on one but generally a good little speaker that’s easy to carry around if you want.

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.

Good sound, gets quite loud. Only negative thing is that it tends to move a lot when there is a lot of bass in a track, so you’ve just got to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t shuffle off the table. Otherwise, great sound and nice design.

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.

Battery life is about 10hours, sound quality is superpub.

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.

  • Sound quality excellent, volume great
  • Sound quality is not great
  • I’m very glad that I did

Solid and compact construction. Rubberized and well-secured input ports. Superb sound quality very nice bass for such a small speaker. Superb option to work in stereo mode wirelessly with the second speaker, super. The sony company did a great job and it appeared on the market of wireless portable speakers in my opinion. I’ve tested one of the company’s speakers before and it did not impress me. This is something else, it still can not compete with my bose soundlink mini, but it is a different price range. I really recommend this speaker.

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 .

This little fella’s amazing, it fit in the palm of your hand but sounds pretty damn good. Yes, the bass is heavy, the mid is lacking, it sometimes distorts and it’s very directional. But, the directional part actually is a plus, if you find the right way to place it you can tune the sound so it’s size belies it’s sound quality. Down sides; the bottom is rubber so it attracts all kinds of weird scuz. Other than that it seems pretty good so far. Pairing was easy, i didn’t even read the instructions coz i’m a man….

Lovely speaker although not as loud as some reviewers suggest in my view. The built in noise cancelling microphone is quite useless and that’s such a pity.

This is a superb little speaker for it’s size and price. The sound quality is very good for the size. It doesn’t come with a case which is a bit of a niggle, as i spent an extra £10 on a case – a must if it’s for teenagers.

Great feel, nice shape, fits on the little rubber stand, sounds good, and has nfc despite not listing it, and you can connect two to get stereo , best little speaker i have.

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.

Excellent little speaker sound is spot on connected easily haven’t tested the battery life yetneed to save up for a second one.

Easy to connect to, battery lasts a long time and sound is very good considering its size. I do find it sounds better when placed upright and not on its side. Maybe that is a personal opinion though.

I waited six months from when these speakers were announced to when they are available. The speaker is amazing, with incredible depth of sound.

Bring dance music to life with EXTRA BASS –

I’m using the speaker for more than a month. Easy to carry anywhere, perfect size and good looking. Nfc works fast for pairing with my android smartphone. When you get a call, it sounds your ringtone but after receiving the call, it automatically goes silent. Sound is very clear and has good volume. But for people like me who are extreme bass lover, it won’t satisfy that much. Lastly, it’s body is coated with some kind of rubber for water resistance which is a dirt-catcher.

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.

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.

Have used it around the house, in work and for drinks in the house. Battery life is great, sound quality is amazing, not as loud as i thought it would be, but it’s still great. Friends always ask me to bring it with me. I have and would recommend it, it’s a perfect little bluetooth speaker.

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

Having listened to a smaller cube shaped bluetooth speaker i opted fro the ‘extra bass’ promised by this model. Space is not a problem, but the footprint is only a little larger so no problem there.

Any time, any place –

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

Bought this for my dad for his birthday, he loves it. The sound quality is quite good as well. It’s not that loud, but also quite loud considering the sound of the speakers. I can’t speak for the durability yet, but we’re happy so far :).

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.

Water-resistant design –

Absolutely love this sony portable speaker. It’s volume is brilliant for something so small. I use it with an auxiliary cable to connect to all of my devices. I purchased a hard case to protect it, as it’s well worth looking after.

Lovely looking speaker, easy to connect and fantastic sound. Used it in the car and home and about to take on holiday.

Bought this as a gift but has been used nearly every day since i bought it. Sound quality excellent, volume great. Extremely portable and wipe clean (got very dirty after a weekend in a football bag but wiped easily with baby wipes.

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.

Sound is amazing from this small speaker. The extra bass is well worth it and you won’t be disappointed by the volume either. Don’t really know about the battery life or durability as haven’t had it long or used it extensively enough to comment.

Took it skiing for a week, used it in morning and evenings. Didn’t test the waterproofness but the build and material suggest it would be fine. Good sound quality and very loud for size.

Bluetooth Frequency Range: 2.45GHz. rUp to 16 hours of battery life –

When i first got it out of the box i wasn’t sure. The sound was not bad at all. Would have liked it to be a bit louder but a good around sound. Would recommend it if you want a base sound for your phone.

Great little bluetooth speaker with good battery life, might buy a second one so i can link them and enjoy my music in proper stereo. Looks and feels sturdy, like it could easily survive being dropped on the ground a few times. I’m careful though so can’t confirm that.

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.

Sony at is best with a lil’un. Loud as hell, obousuly no subwoofer shaking the room. No distortion at top end and perfection with no bottoming out at the low end (for the audio file out there) it’s got a passive bass radiator and it shook the table. It’s an audio hand grade, small but will fill the room with music.

This has a really good sound quality for the size and price. It also has a microphone so you can use it for calling people if you want.

Small but powerful and very good sound for the size. I only use it occasionally but am glad i didn’t spend more as i thought i would have to to get decent sound quality. Probably worth spending more if it is to be a main music source.

Plenty of volume and easy to set up. Great sounds too despite dinky size.

Sony HT-SF150 2ch Single Soundbar – Quaity sound from a small device

Great sony addition to the soundbar for the money. Easy to setup and takes only minutes to get things up and running. But if you need deep bass look elsewhere, otherwise go for it.

I am an amazon vine reviewer. I am reviewing the sony sound bar – model ht-s100f/sf150. It arrived well protected in a box with polystyrene supports. There are several items of “paperwork” within the box. I homed in on the large single-page “start up guide”. It opens out and i followed the clear step-by-step diagrams, which showed me the contents in the box and how to connect the sound bar to my tv. Included is an optical digital cable. What is not included is an hdmi cable – which you will definitely need to get to make the tv-sound bar connection. I had a spare hdmi cable of sufficient length –about 1 metre long, which i used in the set up. If your tv has an out mdmi “arc” (audio return channel) connection then you don’t need the optical digital cable.

Had a bose solo 5 the set up was a bit more complicated as are settingsbut sony soundbar compares favourably volume waysstill to get used to it as yet. An update here am 100% pleased with my sony soundbar. Here are the specifications for the Sony HT-SF150 2ch Single Soundbar:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Powerful surround sound thanks to S-Force front surround and bass reflex unit
  • Simple connectivity: one easy HDMI connection to TV and instant music listening from your mobile device via Bluetooth or USB
  • Elegant, slim design with soft edges to effortlessly place in front of your TV or wall-mount
  • The two speaker setup delivers front surround sound from a compact unit
  • Send audio and control information from your TV using just one cable with HDMI ARC

I’m using this with sony kdl46hx853bu tv, now obsolete, but at the time feted for having decent sound for a flatscreen due to a nifty integrated stand-cum-soundbar. This means that for this add-on item to be notably better, it would need to be very decent for this price. And so it is a pleasure to say that it is a step, albeit a modest step, up. The sound is definitely fuller, it is much less abrasive at higher volumes, and the variety of tuning options (cinema/speech/quiet etc) really do all add a pleasant timbre to the sound, or adjust nicely for lighter listening. In my view the soundstage is wider too, with better definition of left and right parts of the picture. There’s no clever depth of staging though, and the sound is not in any way as cinematic as a modest pair of actual speakers might produce with some half decent amplification. On practical matters, the setup was incredibly simple, although one would expect so given the same-brand nature here; it requires an hdmi connection to the tv, and if this isn’t a 2-way port, an additional optical digital connection (the connector for this is supplied; an hdmi lead is not). It comes with a remote, but slaves automatically to the tv’s remote also, so it is possible to minimise clutter, and, in addition to the tv input, has a bluetooth connection, so it can double up as a speaker for radio/music or whatever from a mobile device. This makes it a handy thing to have, which can to some extent mean its added clutter is offset against a device or two removed from the lounge. Appearance wise, it is unfussy and unobtrusive.

Got this soundbar since the sound on my new sony bravia tv was so thin. The soundbar has two tweeters and two woofers and a bassport on the backside. It is one of the cheapest quality soundbar that i could find. I am more than happy with this soundbar. The sound is 100 times better than on my tv. The voices are really clear and distinct. And the volume can get loud enough. You will not get deep punchy bass, but the bass that is there, is more than enough for me. The soundbar also looks great. I connected it via optical link without any problem since i used up all the hdmi-port on the tv.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best sound bar I’ve owned.
  • A simple soundbar with limited connectivity and no sub-woofer
  • Pleased with purchase

Five stars for quality, design, versatility and ease of setting up and use, 3 stars for sound overall = 4* on balance. This is a beauty to look at and a cinch to set up. It truly improves our lg flat screen tv’s sound, bringing it alive with clarity, fullness and bass (an excellent, well controlled bass, too, considering there’s no sub-woofer). It has settings for voice clarity, also, which is good if you are hard of hearing or just find certain dvds have poor sound, as we do. If you have no room for a subwoofer, respect your neighbours, then this is a good choice sound bar that will not disappoint. The ht-sf 200, at another £50 looks to be well worth listening to, also. If you want truly immersive sound, you’ll need to pay far, far, more (think sonos).

I have a sony tv which has pretty good sound already. I also have a surround sound system that is great but to be honest only ever used for the odd film that needs it. Which is where this sound bar comes in. Easy as a normal tv setup requiring little wiring and looks neat and tidy with far better sound than the on board speakers with the tv. Not as good of course as a decent surround sound setup but way better than the bog basic tv sound. You use the template lined up with the bottom of the tv (if you are wall mounting this) and then mark the drill holes. Plug and screw in some screws and hey presto. If i’m honest i would not use the template lined up with the tv because it sits the bar quite a bit lower and you can see the sound and power cables. Given the location of the bass port at the back i really don’t think you need any space apart from that required to access the touch buttons on the top. That means i could have set this about 1′ or 25mm below the tv and it would still be fine but look a bit neater. Connections are via hdmi or fibre optic or both. A power socket is needed as well of course.

This sound bar was simple to set up – we used hdmi, but you can also connect using optical audio, usb or bluetooth. Sound is great – really clear, and at high volumes it’s loud, and really good bass.

Ok i bought this sony sound bar from amazon used , as expected outer pack was damaged , what do you do with package throw it away. The equipment inside was as new every thing was there, took me 5 mins to set up now have a lovely sound on my tv would highly recommend by used i saved £ 50 .

Great sound bar, easy to set up, easy to use and great sound through either tv or playing music from bluetoothed phone connection, onlydown side is getting the sound balance right when switching from bluetooth music back to tv, remember to turn the volume right down. Otherwise it will make you jump.

Purchased as a gift and the were very happy with product.

This sony ht-sf150 soundbar is a simple solution if you want to improve the sound from your flat-screen tv. Connectivity is rather limited, but ok for it’s purpose, with just a single hdmi port, an optical-in and a usb port – but other devices can be easily connected via bluetooth. If your tv is fairly modern it will probably have an arc-enabled hdmi port, if it does you must use that one to connect to this soundbar or you will not be able to hear anything from it. If you have an older tv, or have something else connected to your tv’s arc-enabled hdmi port, then you will need to use the optical tos link instead – an optical cable is provided for this purpose. If your tv has neither arc nor optical-out then you will not be able to use this soundbar with it. This ht-sf150 is a slim single-unit soundbar that does not come with a separate sub-woofer so the bass is comparatively light – if you like a bit of deep audio oomph with your films and music then this is probably not the model for you, but if you just want to hear the tv sound a bit more clearly then this speaker will be fine. For simplicity this soundbar can be placed in front of your tv, on a shelf below it in a cabinet, or it can also be wall-mounted below your tv if you want to use it in that type of configuration. Sony’s s-force virtual surround sound technology works fairly well – but better with some material than others – and the bass reflex system is ok for the unit’s size. The bluetooth connectivity is useful and saves having to find another speaker to play music from your phone or tablet when indoors – something you will probably use regularly. This new model from sony is currently around one hundred and forty pounds from amazon making it reasonable value for the features and build-quality and it is bound to suit many users looking for a simple tv audio solution – bass-lovers may want to spend a little extra on something a bit more substantial.

I used this with my sony bravia tv and it has improved the sound. I have the different modes and my daughters disney films sound great on cinematic. I haven’t tried the bluetooth option yet but music on the tv sounds really crisp. It also has a night mode which seems to remove the base to stop the sound travelling.

Overall this is great – it was very simple to set up and connect to a samsung tv. It improves significantly on the sound quality and makes watching the tv much better. If connected to a dvd player it means that it acts as a sound system for audio cd’s as well. So that was an added bonusthe bar itself is nice and slim and makes an easy fit into our tv cabinet without being intrusive.

In the box is the soundbar itself, a remote, an instruction manual for both and an optical input/output cable. The instruction manual was simple and easy to read. It made it look very easy to set up to the tv and had a few troubleshooting options as well. Unfortunately, we were unable to connect the soundbar to our tv as our tv doesn’t have an optical cable input. The instruction manual says you can connect via hdmi (arc) but, for some unknown reason, it doesn’t work for our tv, despite it having that input. As a result of this we haven’t been able to use it on our tv and, our sony soundbar is now our bluetooth speaker underneath it. There may be a workaround i suppose, but we haven’t looked into it as yet. Despite that disappointment (which is more down to our slightly dated and low-spec tv rather than this product), most importantly this soundbar has amazing sound quality; it has lots of bass and can be played very loud without distortion. Thankfully, it was simple to connect with bluetooth on our phones and laptops, so, until we upgrade our tv, we are just using the bluetooth feature with our wireless devices and the sound is excellent.

I can actually hear my movies. Using this in arc mode on my 43inch 4k lg tv and it has saved me so much hassle. Bluetooth works perfectly so i can listen to my deezer playlist without having to use the tv app or external speaker. The first film i watched when i set this up was jurassic park on blu-ray and the sound was so much better than my tv speakers by miles. You are in that moment, it’s late but you can’t hear anything being said, you turn it up and you go ‘much better’ and then wham, bomb goes off and your heart drops. No more of that with voice/night mode. Plus the games also benefit and too i can hear the actual voices. Even low sounding films like dark was the night was vastly improved. I had an old bose solo tv base and sadly the sound has been lacking for years and one of the worst purchases i made, so i set myself a budget and wanted the bass inside the speaker as i didn’t want a sub woofer on the floor to be kicked around or annoy my neighbours. This just fits me perfectly, it will never beat a true surround setup, but it’s easy to use.

Sony SRS-XB10 Compact Portable Wireless Speaker : Excellent value and quality

Bought this for my dad for his birthday, he loves it. The sound quality is quite good as well. It’s not that loud, but also quite loud considering the sound of the speakers. I can’t speak for the durability yet, but we’re happy so far :).

Great small speaker , its a competition to see if i get it or my daughter who loves it for the car. Great battery life ideal for holidays etc.

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.

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.

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.

Good sound, gets quite loud. Only negative thing is that it tends to move a lot when there is a lot of bass in a track, so you’ve just got to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t shuffle off the table. Otherwise, great sound and nice design.

This has a really good sound quality for the size and price. It also has a microphone so you can use it for calling people if you want.

Great feel, nice shape, fits on the little rubber stand, sounds good, and has nfc despite not listing it, and you can connect two to get stereo , best little speaker i have.

I’m using the speaker for more than a month. Easy to carry anywhere, perfect size and good looking. Nfc works fast for pairing with my android smartphone. When you get a call, it sounds your ringtone but after receiving the call, it automatically goes silent. Sound is very clear and has good volume. But for people like me who are extreme bass lover, it won’t satisfy that much. Lastly, it’s body is coated with some kind of rubber for water resistance which is a dirt-catcher.

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.

Having listened to a smaller cube shaped bluetooth speaker i opted fro the ‘extra bass’ promised by this model. Space is not a problem, but the footprint is only a little larger so no problem there.

Small but powerful and very good sound for the size. I only use it occasionally but am glad i didn’t spend more as i thought i would have to to get decent sound quality. Probably worth spending more if it is to be a main music source.

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.

Sound is amazing from this small speaker. The extra bass is well worth it and you won’t be disappointed by the volume either. Don’t really know about the battery life or durability as haven’t had it long or used it extensively enough to comment.

Nicely presented, solid with great sound. Outer materials are lovely- solid and smooth rubbery material, got the black one, looks really smart. Excellent gift and happy recipient.

When i first got it out of the box i wasn’t sure. The sound was not bad at all. Would have liked it to be a bit louder but a good around sound. Would recommend it if you want a base sound for your phone.

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

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 .

Sony is a very powerful brand and this speaker does not disappoint one bit. Excellent sound quality and the volume is awesome. Very portable and i can take around on the go and fits in my bag very well. This is a must have if you love music while chilling at the park with friends or family.

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.

Sony at is best with a lil’un. Loud as hell, obousuly no subwoofer shaking the room. No distortion at top end and perfection with no bottoming out at the low end (for the audio file out there) it’s got a passive bass radiator and it shook the table. It’s an audio hand grade, small but will fill the room with music.

Sony SRS-XB10 Compact Portable Wireless Speaker with Extra Bass, Yellow : This speaker provides volume and clarity across the audio range. The extra bass is not boomy leaving mid-range and high range frequencies unchallenged.

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.

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.

Fabulous sound quality, neat and extremely portable, but with powerful bass and clarity. I picked up two for full stereo and the sound is flawless. I may need another two for full surround sound.

Absolutely love this sony portable speaker. It’s volume is brilliant for something so small. I use it with an auxiliary cable to connect to all of my devices. I purchased a hard case to protect it, as it’s well worth looking after.

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.

Bought this as a gift but has been used nearly every day since i bought it. Sound quality excellent, volume great. Extremely portable and wipe clean (got very dirty after a weekend in a football bag but wiped easily with baby wipes.

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 little fella’s amazing, it fit in the palm of your hand but sounds pretty damn good. Yes, the bass is heavy, the mid is lacking, it sometimes distorts and it’s very directional. But, the directional part actually is a plus, if you find the right way to place it you can tune the sound so it’s size belies it’s sound quality. Down sides; the bottom is rubber so it attracts all kinds of weird scuz. Other than that it seems pretty good so far. Pairing was easy, i didn’t even read the instructions coz i’m a man….

Solid and compact construction. Rubberized and well-secured input ports. Superb sound quality very nice bass for such a small speaker. Superb option to work in stereo mode wirelessly with the second speaker, super. The sony company did a great job and it appeared on the market of wireless portable speakers in my opinion. I’ve tested one of the company’s speakers before and it did not impress me. This is something else, it still can not compete with my bose soundlink mini, but it is a different price range. I really recommend this speaker.

Having listened to a smaller cube shaped bluetooth speaker i opted fro the ‘extra bass’ promised by this model. Space is not a problem, but the footprint is only a little larger so no problem there.

Sony HTCT290 : Definitely recommend.

Clear sound bass wish i brought the slim line one.

White goes with my wall shelf. Only downfall is my volume from both my sky remote and tv remote do not function other than the soundbar remote unless i have a sony tv too but i have lg.

Bought this soundbar because i was having difficulty in hearing the tv dialogue (i’m getting on a bit). Soundbar has been excellent, easy to install and operate and sound quality now vastly improved.

I would say the best sound bar for this price (£170), especially when you connect with your sony tv (just one hdmi arc cable, one remote controller). Quality of sound with s-force is good enough for me + sub (quite powerful). I feel s-force surround at front of me with really good quality sound and sub is behind sofa which gently supplements soundbar. Sound quality is good enough for me, you feel like a bit of cinema with many virtual speakers surrounds you.

  • Nice to look at, sounds great and cheap. What more do you want.
  • Sound quality that packs a punch for the price
  • No lip sync issues

Sony HTCT290.CEK 300 W Soundbar with Bluetooth, HDMI and Wireless Subwoofer – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Immersive sound: Recreate that cinema feeling with Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround sound technology
  • Simple connectivity: one simple HDMI connection to TV and easy wireless link to your smartphone with Bluetooth
  • Slim design: designed for style and substance offering a slim elegant profile to blend any living environment
  • Interface : Input and Output Terminals – Opt. In, USB – 1 (USB-A), Bluetooth® : Yes(A2DP (SINK), AVRCP)
  • Main Unit Size – Body Only (W x H x D) (cm) :5.2 x 90.0 x 8.6,Subwoofer Size (W x H x D) (cm):34.2 x 17.0 x 36.2

Great quality item and sou d however it keeps going out of sync and have to keep turning the sound bar on and off.

Ordered this from amazon warehouse so a bit dubious, especially about some of negative comments regarding lip sync. Up and running within 10 minutes (i did read manual carefully prior to set up). My tv is a sony bravia but 6 years old and i was also worried that the sound bar would block out tv remote signal. The sound bar is very compact in height and absolutely no problems with tv controls. Also it synced with my tv and the sky remote automatically – a breeze. The only negative is that the sub woofer is fairly sizeable, but it is tucked away discretely and again connected wirelessly with no problems. Also play music from my ipod/iphone which all connected easily through bluetooth.

The only problem didn’t come with a connecting cable. Instructions weren’t clear on how to set up pass through.

Geat sound ,i thought a sound bar at first was a pub that was open all day,sadly no,this one is much better and does not give you a hang over .

. And brilliant sound, am very happy with it.

Replaced a samsung sound bar of lower quality. Great sound, and the bluetooth connected sub-wooofer can be positioned anywhere. As usual the sub-wooofer only adds a bass rumble but it comes into its own with action movies. Sound options are quite limited but the system puts out such a great sound why do you need to adjust it?.Very happy with my purchase.

But the optical cable slot is in a stupid place. I bought bought this cable (ibra muzil gold 1. 5m – digital optical cable | toslink / audio cable | fibre optic cable) i could not fit it in the slot beacuse the slot is in a stupid place. Does anyone know a good optical cable that will fit?.

Doesn’t look too bulky and out of place. The bass is excellent, for all those complaining – it totally relies on the quality of the sound source. Some programmes are very bass weak, but films, music and gaming really show off the strengths.

This is a very stylish and highly functional sound bar, before i get into the features and the sound quality ill run through the set up. All that is required is to unbox the items place them how you want them to be set up, for me it was the sound bar free standing under the tv and the sub woofer to the right of the tv cabinet. There are points on the back of the sound bar to allow it to be fixed to the wall if your tv is wall mounted. After this you wither need to connect a hdmi cable (not supplied) to your tv hdmi arc (audio return channel) or via the optical audio output from you tv (optical cable is supplied). After this plug both the sub and bar in and the device will start up when activated on the remote. This took me 5 minutes to do the above. The sub and the sound bar do not require any wires between them and communicate through a wireless connection, my wireless router sits right next to the tv and i have had no interference from this connection between the bar and sub for my home network. My tv is a 40″ samsung and the sound bar fits perfectly underneath this and is the same length as the tv this was a added bonus for me as it sits nicely because of this. When powered on the front middle of the bar lights up and illuminates in a soft white light giving the text for what option is currently selectedthe sound quality is exactly what i expect from a sony device, it is excellent. I have used the music function with a usb device connected to the rear of the device and the music sounds superb.

Great sound and easy to set up.

Works great, sounds great, great performance for the price and the wireless sub is great as can be moved. The only downside is there is only optical in and one hdmi. No analogue in, i got around this buy purchasing an analog to digital adapter.

Its just great, lovely sound easy to use no syncing issues.

I could think a couple complaints but all in all for the price range this is an awesome product and you won’t get much better.

Great design, low footprint, easy to setup, good value for your money. Only wish i’d bought it sooner.

Its nice to have good quality. Look forward to more hours listening to my music.

Easy to set up, excellent sound, the sub woofer really supplements the overall sound, providing a subtle base when listening or watching something with a deep base sound, otherwise its just the bar you can detect. Make sure you pair the sub woofer speaker whilst its reasonably close to the bar, once paired, you can stand it where you like, there’s a good 8ft, distance from bar to sub woofer in my set up. Usual sony quality, which transforms the sound completely.

Sony ht-ct291 300 w soundbar with bluetooth, hdmi and wireless subwoofer – crème whitein the box. The sound bar, subwoofer, remote, batteries for the remote, hdmi cable and instructions. The sound bar fits on a shelf under the tv easily. It has a mains plug and several inputs. An optical cable is supplied for a toishlink socket but i used an hdmi cable as this works better for me (there was a short hdmi cable supplied). The subwoofer can be placed almost anywhere as all you need is a mains connection, the signal is routed to it via bluetooth. The speakers will also link to other bluetooth devices for music playback. Pairing is simple and my phone found the device instantly.

Would recommend to any one if want a great sound and product.

Sony XS-FB1030 10 cm 4-Inch 3 way Co-Axial Speaker System – Very good speakers.

Good but i am not that impressed with them. Good but i am not that impressed with them ,not as good as the 17 cm 3 way sony speakers in the front door,s.

Something that sounds like tapping your thighs. Me-thinks these speakers are overrated, by a long shot. Xtra-bass can only be interpreted into (did you just break wind?) something that sounds like tapping your thighs. To put it bluntly, these speakers don’t do a slugfest they’ll just jab. And jab all day long is what they’ll do. All the meat on the bone has gone. The mid-to-high range is fantastic though. Good clarity in vocals and acoustics. Feel a bit cheated by other reviews, but you never know ’till you try for yourself. Take care and enjoy your music.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Quality as expected for a Sony speaker –
  • Something that sounds like tapping your thighs
  • Impressed. Sound better than they look!

Awesome sound, crystal clear sound and they fit in the existing place where my cars original speakers were.

They’re great, but weren’t compatible with my car so for that reason, returning them. But don’t be put off how good they are. I getting the 4inch model to fit the rear speakers. And then getting another for the front doors.

My son is very happy with the purchase bought for his new car, speakers are clear and crisp.

Sound better than they look. Being middle of the range models, i didn’t really expect much from these speakers other than they should be a lot better than the stock speakers in my smart fortwo. They looked rather ordinary in the packaging being fairly light and very shallow, shallower even than the stock speakers they were replacing. The cone material is also very weird. It appears to be some kind of expanded polystyrene obviously reinforced in some way. Anyway they went in as any 6. However any impressions i had of mediocrity were dispelled the first time i heard them, they sounded way better than i expected with clear sharp vocals and great high frequency extension. Even the bass was way better than i expected for such shallow tiny speakers.

Quality as expected for a sony speaker -. They look very sharp in black and white in my white van – compared to the old x-plode 6×9’s i used to have in an old mini – which had red cones)put these in the rear of my van – it’s hard to say how good they are yet as it’s completely gutted and in process of sound proofing / carpeting. As a result, i’ve had the system up louder than normal (when driving above 30) – and the sound is great, but i cant (yet) pick out the base. I didn’t really fancy going as far as a sub and amp and all that, just stereo with 2 up front and 2 out back, and i hope that when the vans is finished internally, that these will come into their own – they sound great in the stationary vehicle at the moment (incl base). Easy fit with useful template – came with screws, but no sprung washer/fixing clips – lucky i had some to hand anyway but bit surprised.

Awesome sound, crystal clear sound and they fit in the existing place where my cars original speakers were.

They have good treble and volume, but the bass is low. They’re 4′ since but should still have a little more punch than what i’ve heard.

Replaced my clio standard speakers with these.

They’re great, but weren’t compatible with my car so for that reason, returning them. But don’t be put off how good they are. I getting the 4inch model to fit the rear speakers. And then getting another for the front doors.

My son is very happy with the purchase bought for his new car, speakers are clear and crisp.

Great sound quality, easy to install, not quite as mush bass as i expected but didnt matter as i have a seperate sub.

Sound better than they look. Being middle of the range models, i didn’t really expect much from these speakers other than they should be a lot better than the stock speakers in my smart fortwo. They looked rather ordinary in the packaging being fairly light and very shallow, shallower even than the stock speakers they were replacing. The cone material is also very weird. It appears to be some kind of expanded polystyrene obviously reinforced in some way. Anyway they went in as any 6.
