Bayan Audio Soundbook X3

 

The Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 sports a good-looking design and powerful output for its size, but this portable Bluetooth speaker is not without its issues.

Robust, powerful audio output for a speaker this size. Very cool design. Can charge external mobile devices. FM radio. NFC compatible.

Distorts on tracks with deep bass at top volumes. Lops off opening seconds of tracks when skipping to them. Audio cuts out when sound source volume is low.

While the design of the Bayan Soundbook X3 is visually pleasing, there are safer bets in this price range for portable Bluetooth audio, like the Bose SoundLink III. If you're looking to spend less money, both the Bose SoundLink Mini and the Panasonic...

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3

 

A funky wireless speaker with an integrated FM radio

Good design ; Meaty sound for size

Expensive ; Limited bass depth

Great design and a bunch of thoughtful design features make the Soundbook X3 a solid wireless speaker contender. However, as with many premium wireless speakers, the sound per pound equation is a bit tricky.

Bayan Audio SoundBook X3 review

 

Its smart looks and easy-going sound are appealing, but the X3 lacks the clarity, subtlety and excitement of its rivals

Easy to listen to Decent agility Smart finish and compact design Easy to use FM radio is a bonus

Sound could be clearer, punchier and more solid Rivals offer greater subtlety and attack

We like the SoundBook X3, but wish it pushed itself a bit more. Its cheaper sibling (the SoundBook, at £150) offered similar characteristics but fared much better when we tested it a year ago. At this price, the X3 faces stronger competition. With the...

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 review

 

Neat speaker with all the right features, but sound quality isn't as good as some rivals'

At £250, the Soundbook X3 is typically priced for its class of portable speaker. It has a number of noteworthy features, including aptX support, its FM radio and its ability to output audio to another device. The latter, in particular, is tremendously...

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 Review

 

Another really high-quality item from the boys at Bayan Audio which has more than enough power

The device itself is brilliantly put together and has a professional and high-quality feel to it. Yes, it’s a lot of money, but it’s worth it. It’s really worth it.

A stylish, adaptable Bluetooth speaker that packs a punch for its compact size, but does it live up to its price tag?

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 Wireless Speaker Review

 

Not a name you're likely to be familiar with but perhaps one you should get to know. The Audio Soundbook X3 sounds much better than it really has...

Unfeasibly loud ; Very composed ; Excellent Bluetooth quality ; Gorgeous design

FM tuner not so great ; Very occasionally loses detail in the low end

Considering this is a first effort in the wireless speaker market, Bayan Audio has completely nailed it with the Soundbook X3. For starters, it ticks all the lifestyle audio boxes with its beautiful design and high quality Bluetooth streaming...
