    Although this speaker has good sound, the controls are difficult to use.

    The good and the not so good

    This 11/25/2018 review pertains to the Sony XB10 Portable Blue Tooth Speaker (Black). There is good and not so good regarding these two speakers I bought on 09/16/2018. The good: really excellent all around sound. The not so good: these speakers are finicky regarding their placement. Generally, they seem to be most comfortable with uninterrupted line-of-sight placement. Too often even very short distances, and large or small objects located between the speakers and the sound source (in my case, a notebook computer), cause a speaker to loose signal. So, to make these speakers behave, I must be most careful about placement and distance. The previous Jam2 speakers I owned, other than sound quality, were far superior regarding distance and placement. On a lesser note, the controls for these speakers are small, lightly 'printed' on the exterior and difficult to see in poor light. Once again, the Jam2 speakers turned on and off with a push of a button on the bottom of the device (and located in the middle), so even a blind person in a dark room could find that button. In the end, I kept these speakers as the sound quality outweighed the somewhat annoying placement and visibility of controls disappointments. My rating would have been a solid 5 rather than a weak 4 if not for these issues. On the recommendation selection, there should perhaps be a 'maybe' offering added to the 'yes' or 'no' choices.

    This is a very nice little speaker that I got for my home office because I didn't want or need a large one like the larger Sony speaker we have in our Family Room. It has nice sound, especially for its size, is really portable for taking on trips or for outside, and seems pretty sturdy. You really could just pop it in a bag and go because it's not heavy. I had no trouble pairing it with multiple devices. It wasn't worth taking off a star for this, but the only small gripe I have is that the controls for on/off and increase/decrease sound require that you push on a "spot" on the body of the speaker. Maybe because mine hasn't broken in enough, but it seems that sometimes you have to press really hard to activate the spot. Other than that, it's very functional and attractive on my desk.
