    I had to return this. Even though I loved the look and the form factor and the sound, I couldn't find a way to turn this off. I would hold the "power" button, but nothing would shut it off.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This speaker came recommended by the salesman. It does provide good sound and bass for the compact size. Bluetooth connectivity is easy. Only gripe is that although volume and play/pause can be controlled via the speaker, it does not come with skip song buttons.

    The pros are simple: the sound is great, the device is small, and it didn't have any trouble connecting to my phone. The cons are short: the buttons are a bit of a pain, as is removing the rubber cover to access the mini USB port to charge it. It's really minor, but it did prove some difficulty getting it to go into bluetooth discovery mode the first couple times. I would prefer physical buttons you can see rather than the rubber cover sitting over top of the buttons. But I wouldn't let that deter you from buying this, especially not for this price!

    Plenty loud!

    Yeah! Plenty loud! But I don't like that it "vibrates" too much. It's because the bass radiator points downward and the driver can go as low as 20-some Hz. But the sound is great and rich for a speaker of this shape and size, which is appreciated. The buttons don't feel good at all; definitely an aread where corners were cut. Still, they're tactile and do the job. Battery life is impressive at 10 hours.

    The SONY XB10 Bluetooth Speaker is small, highly portable, and has some power. It was easy to use out of the box. I gave it a full charge, then turned it on near my desktop computer. It paired instantly, and I was listening to music while I worked. After that initial pairing, I just held the "on" button down for a few seconds, and it paired with my iPhone without effort. It has a comfortable plastic ring and a short cord that make it easy to carry around, and so I did - around our 2-story house, out the front door to the mailbox, all while getting the signal from my desktop computer. Of course, there is a limit to how far it can be from its source and still pick up the signal, but its range is extensive enough that I can keep the XB10 with me or park it in a convenient spot with no interruption. I haven't really tested the extent of its battery life, because it lasts through a full day, and that's enough for me. The sound is excellent for the speaker's size, clear and rich. I compared it with another, well-respected brand's small Bluetooth speaker, and there was no meaningful difference. I have only the one XB10, so I haven't tried adding an extra one and getting a stereo sound, but I like that this would be a possibility. The markings for the various function buttons are small, pale, and not easy to see, and that does pose a problem for me. However, it does have small raised dots at the "play" and "increase volume" buttons, so as I get more accustomed to using them I probably won't have to look to activate those. Overall, the SONY XB10 makes a nice addition to my listening options.
