      Answer

      YES YOU CAN! ... And boy do they sound incredible when you do! - The Sony SRS-XB2(3) speakers have the ability to be "paired" together with each other (2 speakers required) utilizing the built-in "Speaker Add Function" that allows 2 of these speakers to communicate with each other using a discreet Bluetooth signal generated by the speaker itself. The speakers can then be set to separate a stereo signal into right and left channels for "True" stereo sound. (NOTE: This only works when you have a device (tablet, smart phone, Bluetooth enabled MP3 player) that is sending the initial speaker a Bluetooth signal that is in stereo to begin with).

        Answer

        I compared all of those options and chose the Sony. It sounded better than jbl and beats and as good as the bose. It was also half the price as the bose and had a longer battery life. I chose the Sony and have been very happy with my decision.

          Answer

          Well this device has 2 speakers but they are so close to each other that really doesn't give a real stereo sound,in all honestly there is no Bluetooth speakers currently that provides a real stereo experience,if you want that you have to go with a full audio system with individual speakers for highs,mids and lows and a subwoofer,this portable Bluetooth speakers are made for on the go and for that purpose they are great especially this Sony Bluetooth speaker.

              Answer

              YES it will, if your TV has a 3.5 mm stereo, "Audio Out" port, and you get a 3.5 mm stereo patch cord to be used between the TV and the speaker. Even if your TV does not have a 3.5 mm stereo, "Audio Out" port/receptacle you may still be able to get an adapter cord that has (male) right and left channel RCA type connectors (commonly used on TVs for decades now) that feed into a single 3.5 mm, male, stereo plug that will then plug into the back of a Sony SRS-XB2 portable Bluetooth speaker.

                Answer

                In my experience (having owned both), the SRS-XB2 produces much crisper, clearer tones, provides a more distinct bass, and produces a much louder sound without distorting audio.

                  Hi Heather. This speaker can be paired to up to 8 devices. To be safe, just re-initialize the speaker by pressing and holding the – (volume) button and the (power) button at the same time for more than five seconds until the speaker turns off. After doing the steps mentioned, try pairing your new iPhone again. -Mark

                  Do you need two of these speakers for good sound? Or are these designed as a stand alone?   (5 Answers)

                    This speaker works great as a stand alone. The tone is rich with great clarity. Although I am certain that dual speakers may produce more surround effects the single speaker delivers a great range and depth of sound.

                  maximum charges (battery life) - also, can the battery be replaced?   (5 Answers)

                    Answer

                    Here's my Battery Life / Play-Time experience after 4 months of use : My experience has been that the least "full-charge" play-time that you can get out of one of these speakers is somewhere between 13 to 16 hours. I've been giving my speakers a full (maximum) 4 hour charge AFTER fully discharging them, and I plan on giving them at least 10 FULL charge/discharge cycles before I ever "short-charge" them "on-the-fly". - Follow the instructions and charge the speaker(s) right-out-of-the-box! - NO MORE THAN 4 HOURS EVER. - The charging indicator light should always shut off in 2 to 3 hours of charging. - I got over 19 hours of play-time out of the first charge on one speaker and over 17 hours on the second one. = YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY depending on: your charging discipline, volume level usage and other environmental factors like heat and humidity, etc., etc., etc. --> NOTE: NEVER over-charge a Lithium-ion/Li-ion hybrid battery. Unplug it within 1 to 2 hours (max.) after it is fully charged. AND, ALWAYS try to fully charge and discharge your battery, "full" cycles ARE important. If you ever have to store your device with a Lithium-ion battery for more than a couple of weeks, make sure you put it away fully charged. ... Once a Li-ion battery fully loses its charge and ends up sitting fully discharged for more than a couple of weeks, it may very well die completely or may never be able to be fully charged again. I AM fully expecting that these batteries should be able to be "fully" cycled (charged/discharged) AT LEAST 100 to 150 times, and they may be able to be made to last up to 300 cycles before they finally fail outright. ... Again, your charging discipline, from the initial use is key to the batteries' actual longevity. - AND, NO the batteries contained in these speakers are NOT intended to be replaced by the consumer/owner. ... However, from my own experience with Sony Consumer Products Service and Repair, I'd be willing to bet that Sony Service Centers, in America, will be able to replace the batteries in these speakers for many years to come. The "down-side" reality is that this type of service will, most likely, cost a fair bit more than you ever paid for the speaker to begin with.
