Sony SRS-X33

 

The diminutive Sony SRS-X33 speaker delivers excellent Bluetooth audio at moderate volumes, but it falters when you crank it higher.

Delivers rich, dynamic, crisp audio experience at moderate volumes. Built-in speakerphone. Can stream higher quality audio.

Distorts at top volumes. No playback controls on speaker itself.

As mentioned earlier, the SRS-X33 is intriguing—at certain volumes, it sounds fantastic for its size and price, but at higher volumes, it can sound unlistenable. For $130, I still really like the Sony SRS-X33 when listening at moderate volumes. It's an...

Sony SRS-X33 review

 

At first glance, it's hard to tell the difference between Sony's SRS-X3 Bluetooth wireless speaker and its successor, the SRS-X33 (reviewed here). In pictures, they feature the same attractively minimalist rectangular design and come in a variety of...

The Sony SRS-X33 is an elegantly designed mini Bluetooth wireless speaker that delivers strong sound for its small size. It has a built-in speakerphone capabilities, NFC tap-to-pair technology for smartphones that support it and good 12-hour battery life.

It can distort slightly when played at at high volumes; no carrying case included.

The Sony SRS-X33 makes a strong case for being a less expensive alternative to the Bose SoundLink Mini II.

Sony SRS-X33 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony SRS-X33 is a stylish table-top speaker that will fit neatly on a kitchen worktop or living room mantelpiece. It has a dedicated 'sound' button that adds a surround effect, but does this add to the listening experience or are you better off...

Excellent sound!

 

I got this for my birthday and was blown away by the sound quality coming out of such a small enclosure. Bass is really good.

Had this speaker four months now and really pleased with my purchase. Use this with my iphone and great to have my music anywhere in the house. Sound quality is excellent as you would expect from a Sony product.

Great performance, until .....

 

I bought the SRS-X33 in November 2015. Making the Bluetooth connection wasn't quite as straightforward as expected. It took several attempts to capture the iPhone and laptop, perhaps the sensor was confused by having two Bluetooth devices to choose...
