Sony XB20 Review


A good, relatively powerful speaker that is fairly inexpensive

Loud, good bass, water resistant, provides light show

Mediocre battery life

The is a loud, powerful speaker that costs only $100. If loud and powerful satisfies your checklist, you'll like this speaker.

Lovely Sound


I bought this for my iPod. The speaker has a lovely rich sound, with extra bass if you want it. It's completely portable, and being cordless there's no cables to worry about. It's small and compact, but powerful. Love it - glad I purchased it.

Handy little gadget for round the house


I bought this for my kitchen as I was fed up of trying to find a plug socket for my old iPod dock (yes I know, you didn't think people had these anymore!) I listen to the radio a lot so this is ideal for placing in the room I'm in without unplugging...

Great sound for such a small device!


I bought this for my sons 5th birthday party. I was a bit anxious if it would be suitable and loud enough, well it was excellent!

Perfect value for money


Perfect sound quality, long battery life, it can be used also while charging: love the equalizer style led lights and the extra bass button. It's really very loud without sound quality distortion.
