    This speaker is weak sauce

    This speaker has no bass. It’s not loud enough to even hear the music well when you’re in the car with it. It’s not as good as a car’s radio. And when you’re in a room it doesn’t fill the room up with sound the way a quality speaker should. If you want a cheap speaker that has no bass, get this one, but I think the 30 bucks extra that you would pay for a different speaker is the cost of having a decent strong bass sound to shake your windows like everybody wants when they’re trying to get hype for a night out with their friends.

    Great Little Speaker

    After reading all the reviews, I took the chance and bought this little speaker. I was quite surprised at how good it sounded after trying to figure out how to pair it. I couldn't figure out how to do it so I did a Google search and found a You Tube video which was very helpful. I suggest that others find the video as it was very helpful. I am very happy with the sound quality and the ease of moving it around the house and also take it outside on my patio. I would recommend it if you want a small little speaker with good sound quality. I am very happy with my purchase. I hope this helps.

    Good speaker for the casual buyer

    A solid mid-price choice for a more casual listener that wants something very portable but also capable of decent quality sound and high volume. The battery life seems to range from about 10 - 18 hours depending on the temperature and age of your speaker. Sound quality dips noticeably at max volume but that same volume can be heard in a car driving 80mph down a highway with a window open so it is understandable. Rubberized coating is good for durability but also lets dust and other particles stick to it which can get gross if not regularly cleaned. Overall its definitely one of the best blue-tooth speakers for the price.

    Small and Portable w/ Decent Sound

    I was looking for a very small and portable BT speaker to use when traveling, enjoying the outdoors, etc. I knew ahead of time that I would be sacrificing sound quality for size, but this little Sony BT speaker provided a good balance. As to be expected, it's lacking in low end, but it's otherwise a decent sounding speaker. So far the battery life has been solid and the ability to pair with another speaker for stereo is a nice feature. One caveat - I purchased this speaker on a really good sale. At full price, I'd probably opt to spend another $10-$20 and sacrifice portability for audio quality.

    Small Powerhouse

    This is a very good small Bluetooth Speaker. The sound volume will fill a small room and the sound quality is very good. Lots of bass and clear high notes. I successfully paired and connected to two Android devices and three Apple devices. It is 3" round and 3 1/2" high. It weighs 8.6 oz. The manual says that it will last 5 hrs. at max volume and 16 hrs. at volume 10 (don't know what that means, but it lasted 14.5 hours at room filling volume) It recharged in 4 hrs. If you have two or them, they can be set up for 2 channel sound. My only slight complaint is the "stealth" markings. They can hardly be seen. Overall, a very good product.

    Love the blue color, but more importantly, this little speaker packs a sound punch. The volume is more than adequate - other Bluetooth speakers I've owned before have required full volume setting at all times, but not this one - and the sound quality is excellent. Really good bass. Also, the range is pretty darn good, and unlike lesser speakers, it doesn't constantly cut out, it really retains the Bluetooth connection very well. I don't use it but I bet other people would find the little round hook useful for shower sound. And it keeps a charge pretty well too (maybe like 15 hours?). Very pleased.

    Great sound in a little gadget

    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!

    My wife purchased this for my mother for Christmas. She is hard of hearing and we like to send her videos of our kids via her smartphone. Unfortunately, she often can’t hear the dialogue on the videos. We were surprised at how compact this speaker is and yet how much clear and powerful sound it produces. It easily connects via Bluetooth and volume can be controlled from the phone or from the speaker itself. Need a tough little speaker that is easily portable yet capable? Look no further!

    Great sound from a smaller speaker

    This in my opinion is a great product. The sound quality is very good for the size of the speaker. You will love how long the batter life on it lasts as well. This product is best for users that want a quality speaker without the hassle of cords or a large sound system. The bluetooth feature is great so you don't have to plug in your phone. The only flaw with the product is that it is not waterproof and should not be used around water. Overall this is a great product because it seems to be durable, is somewhat water resistant, and has a great quality sound.

    Very Loud, Long Battery Life, Very Portable

    I highly recommend this little speaker. I don't even have a 2nd one paired to it yet, and it is plenty loud by itself. I got it because I work 12 plus hours a day, and this is one of the few with a battery that can last that long. It is insanely loud, and has so much bass it shuffles around if you set it on a table (maybe a weighted bottom to keep it stable would help). Can't wait to get the 2nd one and hear the awesomeness times 2!!

    This speaker looks very stylish and the color is vibrant but not too funky. It is very light and convenient to carry with you. I need it for my job, so it is in my backpack all the time. All controls work well and it is quite loud. The only problem I experience is that it drops the Bluetooth connection quite often, and it is very annoying because I have to reconnect it from my laptop in the middle of the song, podcast etc.

    Buy two, and enjoy stereo!

    For whatever reason of incompatibility, I hadn't had any luck with several sets of other bluetooth speakers sync'ing completely with my Sony Walkman (NW-A35)... so, bought my first XB-10, to keep it Sony-to-Sony. Unlike the others, it performed very satisfactorily in all regards. Then, in reading the guide, I learned you could add another XB-10 and they'd sync into L & R channels. Adding a second unit couldn't have been easier... and now having once again the dynamic of channel separation is outstanding. Buy two, and enjoy the stereo!!

    I bought this because my car radio was becoming intermittent. I use my smartphone with an FM radio app and it works great. The sound of the Sony is full, with acceptable low end. I also use it outside of the car and find that I get far more use than I originally thought I would. If you are looking for a low cost speaker to enhance your smartphone or other blue tooth device, this should be on your list to check out.

    Big sound for little speaker

    This speaker has a lot of bass for being so small. That being said, that's not necessarily a good thing. On songs with lots of bass, the speaker vibrates. It literally vibrated off of my dresser and off of my table. I had to put it on top of one of those rubber round things that helps you open pickle jars, to keep it from bouncing around. This is my 3rd small blue tooth speaker, and I have not had this issue with any of the others. If you don't feel like chasing your speaker around the house, you might want to look into another speaker option.

    This is a perfect, compact size wireless speaker. Purchased especially for an upcoming trip to the beach. I was looking for something small as well as affordable & this wireless speaker fit the criteria that I had. The sound quality was adequate and they are really loud considering the small size. It also has a feature where you can pair it with another XB10 speaker if you desire. I also liked that it is suppose to have 16 hours battery life from a charge. I really don’t have any complaints about this speaker

    I've owned a lot of small speakers, and battery life has always been an issue. I'm currently on my 14th hour of using this one without recharging! The sound is very good for a small speaker, and it gives you the option of pairing with another to create true dual response! It connects via bluetooth and NFC and doesn't require a specialty charger! The water resistance factor is another plus, though I wouldn't trust the built in lanyard to hang it from a bicycle as shown in the promo materials.

    I purchased this speaker over a year ago and this speaker is still going strong. My wife and I really love this speaker, we take this about almost everywhere we go to listen to our music. It is really small and compact and surprisingly loud and good quality sound for its size. I want to pick a second one up to do the Part Link were you can link multiple Sony Bluetooth speakers together. If you are in the market for a nice affordable small Bluetooth speaker and would highly recommend this speaker.

    This is a great little speaker if you're looking for something compact. I couldn't believe the sound that came out of this little speaker. Obviously there's only so much you can get out of a speaker this size and I have other larger speakers that produce more, but I was and still am stunned at just how good this little guy is. If you're looking for great sound in a small package at an affordable price, this should definitely be on your short list!

    This speaker packs quite a punch despite its little size. Super easy to sync and has much more bass than you would expect for such a small speaker. While it wouldn't be sufficient enough to fill a large room or for a party with a lot of people, it is perfect for small gatherings or outings to the beach or park. I haven't tried testing its water resistance, but it seems like it would be up to the challenge. An added plus is that it fits perfectly in my car cup holder for easy transportation from point A to point B.

    I decided to purchase a Bluetooth speaker to gift to my mom who has been asking for one for awhile and saw these on sale for $40. I noticed they had pretty good reviews and I decided to jump on the offer and I'm glad I did. These speakers sound great! They get pretty loud considering how small they are, but it's the quality of the sound that impresses me. They sound rich and crisp, without distortion, and they look great. I would definitely recommend them.
