Very good for the price!
Got it from JB Hi-Fi for $149 NZD, being an older clearance model (superseded by SRS-XB30). Previously tended to hover around the $168-189 price mark. The original suggested RRP of $299 was certainly a bit high - given you could get Bose SL Mini 2 for cheaper ($270).
Excellent battery life! However it ends there.
Sounded OK with the Extra Bass setting off, however with it on, tended to muddy the sound a bit. Other manufacturers do not need to add these settings.
Replaced with Klipsch Groove. Now that's a speaker!
Had the speaker since the summer and have to say I still love it. They do not lie when they say that you can get 24 hours of battery life out of it, at 50% volume, I managed to get it to hold nearly 26 hours. The fact that I also turned up the sound when charging bulb began to brighten. This is a speaker one thinks "to it can not die soon so I can charge it up" to. In addition to the long battery life, the sound rich and nice. I tested it against a JBL Charge 3 and I thought they played exactly the same. I had then turned on extra bass on Sony speaker. Set when the speaker is as cheap as it is in relation to JBL Charge 3 and have longer battery life, I would say this is a much better buy.
This is all so say the best portable speaker you can buy, considering the price. Top Value! Could have been a little touch of more treble. But bass drawers words do not. Recommended
+ Water resistant
+ Super Bass / audio
+ Good battery life
+ Can charge mobile etc with USB
- Could have been a little more treble.
- Must be loaded with Sony's own compassionate power cable
- Will not the more the move :-)
My conclusion is: Running and buy!
Got speaker birthday. Must say that the sound is very impressive for its size. Both high and vällåtande sound. Moreover splashproof.
The only negative I can think of is that it uses a proprietary charger. Unless it's a deal-breaker so I can recommend it warmly!
I have it to listen to podcasts with and that makes it really good. I have not listened to on a lot of music, but the little I listened to it sounds okay, I think, in relation to the small (nice) format.
I have not had any problems with blåtanden and battery life is experienced as very good with it.
The only thing I have to criticize the keys are completely flat, making sure you can not press further. Not exactly a problem, but worth to be noted, however.
