Quality sound & LOUD!
Posted by: JWiley from: on
Tested every other bluetooth speaker in sight and for price, this Sony had loudest/ best quality sound.
Also, mine fell INTO the river 3 weeks ago while on jet ski. It impacted water at 40 mph, was found floating 60 seconds later in tact, bluetooth was still linked as a matter of fact after picking out of saltwater.
Extremely pleased with this product all around.

Excelent Quality For The Price.
Posted by: vicreal1 from: on
I tested several different speakers while in the store and this speaker had the best sound by size and price compared to other high end speakers.Great for small outdoor get togethers or larger indoor rooms without overwhelming the ongoing conversations. You cant go wrong for the price.

Excellent sound, small, portable
Posted by: Jim559 from: on
This device was purchased for me as a gift by one of my children. I could not be happier. The small size makes it exceptionally portable, but the sound is that of a device much larger. It's really good for outdoor BBQ by the pool, and we do a lot of that. I like the rubber "legs" at the bottom. They grip nicely so I don't worry about the device slipping. The other night I used it to play soft music while falling asleep. I have yet to drain the battery, it seems to have several hours of life. If you're looking for a booming bass like one would get from a subwoofer, you're not going to get that from this unit. But it had a decent bass response and the sound quality is very good. This is one of my favorite gifts in a long time.

Best speaker ever
Posted by: Tiffy from: on
Initially I was looking to purchase a Beats Pill... But there was a Sony sales man there that gave me a demo of the speaker! I loves it! The sound is great!

Best speaker at this price point
Posted by: Chris from: on
I spent some time in the store listening to every speaker in this price point. This speaker hands down sounded the best of all of them. Sound was very clear even at higher volume. In fact I ended up buying 2 of these units in total as they work well in tandem with each other.
The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because the requirement to use the Sony charger. Would have given it 5 stars if you could charge the unit with any standard USB power source.

Wonderful wireless speaker
Posted by: nickel33 from: on
We had original visited Best Buy with the intention of buying a specific brand of speaker. However we were greeted by an extremely pleasant female associate that gave us pros/cons about several speakers that we demoed. We really liked the sound of the Sony speaker since it had more bass and the sound quality did not diminish as the volume was turned up. We happened to be going to a bridal shower and decided to try out the speaker, People were so impressed with the quality sound that the host actually went out to buy the same item so that the younger kids (9-11 year olds) could listen to there own music in the garage! The bride-to-be also went out and purchased the same speaker that next week. Great success in recommending to others!! Many thanks to the sales associate!

Awesome Speaker SONY
Posted by: SONYHDTVLED from: Las Vegas, NV. on
The speaker is simply awesome. I loved this speaker so much I purchased two of them and linked them together to play in quad stereo. I love that it's waterproof, you can link two at a time and play them together, it has great deep ((BASS)), it has very warm rich sounds and just simply the perfect size and it looks really cool in STEALTH BLACK. I read the reviews on the speaker and everyone raved about it. I also read a review that said "I only wish it had a pause button", it does… It's called your phone controls. SMH
You can control all of your music including pause, play, stop, skip, forward and backwards simply by using the controls on your Bluetooth enabled devices such as your phone, play all of your music without any problem whatsoever.
SONY definitely got this one right!

Great Bluetooth speaker from an audiophile
Posted by: Robh from: on
I was shocked at the audio quality from this Sony blue tooth speaker. I'm an audiophile and pickier than most when it comes to wanting sound that is balanced while still sounding detailed enough without being bright. I actually prefer the sound without the bass boost button used which seems to be in the minority from other reviews including pro ones. I feel the bass emphasis does add bass and makes the sound first seem to be a lot better since the sound level dramatically increases but once I balanced the volume levels, I found to prefer the sound quality without the bass boost since it was more detailed, balanced and still provided adequate bass. The one quality I was disappointed in is that the treble seemed closed in when the speaker was brand new so critical that you play music through this speaker for a good 72 hours at least with the volume up enough to adequately break in the drivers. Once this occurs, the treble opens up. Still the treble doesn't provide the air you would expect from an audiophile speaker but that would be crazy to expect that at this price point. This speaker is perfect for its size and portability along with the great sound quality. The weight of this small speaker is surprising which is a very good sign since the weight shows the quality of the drivers used. I tried using some small Bose blue tooth speaker last year from a coworker but wasn't impressed at all since the bass was flabby with no that much detail with the sound quality not balanced at all. My ears immediately go to sound not balanced that many may think a speaker has great bass or vocals only for me to tire of listening to music. Bottom line, I think one would be hard pressed to find a better speaker in this price range but again, I highly recommend to break the speaker in as much as possible, say a full week, before deciding to return for any reason.

Big Full Sound
Posted by: nomorejunkforme from: on
I am a Bose fan and usually have found Sony to be over priced so yesterday I bought a Bose Soundlink II. I was not satisfied with the audio quality or power output. Today I bought this Sony speaker. It blows the Bose out of the water, I couldn't believe the difference. Better sound quality and frequency response, much better bass response especially with the bass boost on. 10 dB's louder (SPL meter at same distance) with no distortion at full volume. Almost as good as my full size 3-way studio monitors. Long battery life even at high volume. I'm buying another one tomorrow, I'm a rock drummer and I like it loud but I like to relax with classical and both sound fantastic with this speaker. Definitely the best speaker in the store for the price and size..
