Other than those few things it is overall a very nice speaker with wonderful sound.

A few days after purchasing and enjoying the heck out of this speaker (excellent sound quality!

This speaker has wonderful sound.

In conclusion:This speaker has a really fantastic sound.

The Good: Super easy to pair, Sounds good overall, app allows a lot of customizationThe Bad: Is very bass-heavy even when tuned, Default lighting can be annoying, Nonsensical “feature” for tapping on sidesThe Bottom Line: This speaker is a very good party speaker - it is very loud and the lighting is pretty cool.

I love this speaker I've had it for about 3 days now and it is great, it has a wonderful amount of bass and the design is beautiful.

COMPARISON (various rock and classical music): - Anker MP140: It is an inexpensive Bluetooth speaker.

I am thrilled with this Sony Bluetooth speaker, it has fantastic sound from such a small speaker.

This seems like a really good choice for an outdoor bluetooth speaker.

Reviews around extra bass (3.4/5)

Sony SRS-XB21 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Blue (SRSXB21/Ll)

Whenever I see something advertised with a "extra bass" feature I expect it to be low fidelity but this has a huge dynamic range with excellent frequency response.

The Extra Bass setting was the default one, and sounds good.

The sound is superb especially bass (it even has an Extra Bass setting).

Also, an “extra bass” feature gives the unit a good thumping sound.

- Sound profiles (Standard, Extra Bass and Live Sound): Extra Bass (default) setting has pleasant sound with good bass - for a small speaker.

We've hooked it up to our projector, and it sounds amazing for movies - you can feel the extra bass.

The Sony interoperability and the good, crisp sound make this a nice speaker.

Rather I compared it to two far more expensive systems located in the same listening room, As would be expected, the higher wattage, quality systems produce a fuller, more realistic sound, but the SONY held its own and at lower listening volumes, it is quite satisfying.

The Sony SRS-XB31 is a speaker, its dust proof its waterproof and it sounds great.

Well this Sony sounds great.

Superb sound which I always expect from Sony.

Vocals are crisp and clear and music sounds fantastic.

The sound quality is wonderful, way better than me playing music off of my phone.

Overall this is a great solution for portable music/sound at a pretty decent price-point.

It says you'll have no problem cleaning it, but why risk it?I play music on this, but I'm also very much into my TV shows and movies, so I also played those on these speakers and got excellent results.

It can easily fit in a backpack or purse and can just as easily be set on the corner of a desk or in a room and fill the space with great sound quality music.

For other types of music - it works fine.

- Sounds great at low volume levels but this puppy can get loud- Excellent dynamic range- Easy to use rubberized controls on the top of the speaker- Ports and other controls behind easy-to-open sealed rubber door- Direct connect audio in port (cable not included)- Attractive form factor- Long battery life (up to 12 hours)- Can connect to up to 100 Sony speakers for an immersive sonic experience- Tap the speaker in various ways for a number beat sound effects at partiesCONS:- I'm still looking for them, but hard pressed to find any- Oh, the free downloadable Sony Music Center app is less than stellar, but really isn't required to get the most from the SRS-XB21For the money, this is a great sounding, long-lasting Bluetooth speaker.

--------------------► Sound Performance:--------------------Even without the extra sound boosting features in the Sony Music Center App, the XB21 sounds terrific.

Sony has also made the XB21 compatible with Sony Music Center which is an app available on the Play or iTunes markets.

I used the Sony Music Center iPhone app to change the light setting to "Calm Cinnabar" (a non-flashy yellow/orange mode) for listening at home and I like it a lot better.

The Sony Music Center App gives you some options for the sound settings.

The Sony Music Center app and the Fiestable app.

Great speaker, it's very nice and has great battery life.

Good sound and good battery life at a good price.

This is a great speaker, very good sound, very good battery life.

It offers excellent battery life, GREAT sound (with surprising low end!

Battery life - really is outstanding.



Reviews around multiple speakers (3.4/5)
( 16 )

Sony SRS-XB21 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Blue (SRSXB21/Ll)

Ability to match this up with multiple speakers with the app is pretty cool too.

The light system, while gimmicky, adds a bit of fun, as does the ability to setup multiple speakers in a group.

This totally optional app unlocks some cool extra features like equalizer settings and really cool extras like the ability to chain multiple (compatible) Sony wireless speakers together from one device!

In this way you can put multiple speakers around your home or yard or pool and spread the music speakers out.

If you have multiple speakers, you can connect them to create a great sound in various rooms.

And, I believe, without having multiple speakers to try it, you use Sony Music Center to activate and link multiple speakers of this type, to one BlueTooth sound source, which could be cool, if a group of friends all had one and they wanted to "rev up the party", with speakers set all around.



Reviews around hours (2.1/5)

Sony SRS-XB21 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Blue (SRSXB21/Ll)

The soud is loud and clear, the lights are great, the bad is battery, it takes a lot to charger about 5 hours and its duration is also bad

It takes a while to charge, so it renders it pretty useless in my space for hours at a time.

The battery for the XB41 lasts twice as long, 24 hours vs. 12 hours.

I was very attracted to the link feature to other Sony speakers and the party mode, but your party better not be too long because this baby will not last for a full party unless your parties are less than three hours.

The battery lasts hours.

Battery life claims to be 12 hours but I'll never listen that long to find out if it's true.



Reviews around light show (4.1/5)

Sony SRS-XB21 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Blue (SRSXB21/Ll)

Solid and well rounded sound, decent volume output, solid bass, and the light show is fun to watch.

The app is very user friendly and the kids love the light show!

Referring back to the statement all-in-one having a light show being a portable battery bank as well As the durability In really good stereo sound with the nicely spaced apart drivers!

Good volume, easy to connect and a nice light show

The light show feature is quite cool especially in a small room when partying.

The light show will impress listeners.
