Sony XB40 Portable Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth and Speaker Lights, Blue
The Sony Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a powerful speaker with extra bass, multi-color line light, speaker lights and a flashing strobe. This is a great speaker to keep your party going inside or out. It's water-resistant and st...
The bass boost is awesome and definitely my favorite feature
Sound is clear and with a punchy bass and the light feature is effective and fun
Perhaps because it doesn't show fingerprints and it makes things more grippy?This speaker has a host of great features like 24 hour battery life, spectacular bass boost, the ability to connect up to 10 speakers together so you can party in even the biggest spaces, hand-free phone functionality, water resistant housing, the ability to charge your phone from the internal battery, one touch music listening with your NFC enabled phone and wildly customization lighting effects
Frankly that sounds like it would be one of the more useful features
Good for the price, the highs are not as clean as you would like, the bass is good
This deserves 5 * but I'm giving it only 4* because the two flashing white LED lights are a distraction.
The lights are really fun and the music gets loud and stays clear.
The lights on the face changing while it played music were entertaining for the kids - and a little for this mom!
The two round speaker parts have a white LED light that is either off, on bright, or fading in and out to the beats, and there are two very small strobe lights that are either off or flashing at different speeds with the tempo.
The lights are cool to me, but I can see some thinking they are gimiky
the sound quality on the XB40 is very decent, and as good or better than any other speaker in this price range, it is still no match to old fashioned wired speakers, or to high end bluetooth speakers (like Band and Olufson's M5).It's definitely loud enough to disturb the neighbors, and again, louder than competitors in the same price range
The sound quality was now very good, if not the exceptional quality that you get from high end speakers
We can not get over the amazing high quality sound and unbelievable bass.
The sound quality is okay, but not incredibly sharp
The sound quality is very good for a Bluetooth speaker of this size
After researching amazon for all the Bluetooth speakers available, I purchased the srs-xb40
When the battery is low (reviewers said 50% or so) the speaker's volume is weaker than $30 portable Bluetooth speakers
The XB40 Portable, Wireless, Bluetooth Speaker from Sony raises the bar for portable speakers
I love that it just turns on and off without any annoying loud announcements like "bluetooth on/power on" (I hate when cheap bluetooth speakers have to announce to the whole world when you just simply want it on)-
In conclusion, amongst our crew of outdoor adventurers the Sony XB40 portable Bluetooth speaker is the best such system we have ever seen or used.
