Sony SRS-XB3

 

The Sony SRS-XB3 speaker delivers some of the best Bluetooth audio we've heard for the price, wrapped in a portable, outdoor-friendly design.

Fantastic audio performance with option to enhance bass levels. Portable, water-resistant design. Speakerphone functionality.

Lacks playback and track navigation buttons. Few cables included.

No matter the mode, the Sony SRS-XB3 provides a bass punch that we rarely hear in speakers this size and price. If you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker in the sub-$200 price range, this is the one to get—you can consider the water-resistant...

Sony SRS-XB3

 

A rugged portable speaker with a price that won't make you wince

A super-powerful and portable – if not always subtle – wireless speaker.

Sony SRS-XB3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony claims that its SRS-XB3 speaker can last up to 24 hours between charges, but is this a speaker that you'll want to listen to for hours on end? We sent it off to our test lab for the verdict.

Extra Bass from the Sony SRS-XB3 Bluetooth Speaker: Review

 

At $250 this is not the cheapest Bluetooth speaker you can buy, but in fact it's on par with a range of similarly priced speakers from JBL, UE Boom or Bose making the SRS-XB3 from Sony one to consider....
