    Nothing else gets you a top level name brand along with legitimate stereo sound that is worth paying at least $100 for. Under $70 is an automatic choice since it’s such good quality. Waterproof, take it anywhere in the shower. It dries off quickly and surprisingly the sound quality hardly changed when wet. Most mediocre thing is battery life. Lasts about 6 hours at 70% volume with bass boost on (normal operation) bass boost off just means it disables the use of the woofers built into the sides to save power and is useful for podcasts when bass isn’t a priority. Then the battery life can shoot up to 12+ hours but I’ve never tried it although the battery life is greatly extended when turning off bass boost

    For a speaker the size of a Pringles can it works very well. I don’t have great ear, but I am completely happy with the sound quality and the amount of bass this produces. It’s a bit directional on all but bass, but the spread is a good 180° before the volume drops off a good amount. I also like that it has a microphone, most competitors don’t have this feature. It works well for a conference room speaker or even as a hands free phone. Pairs easily with an android phone (pixel 6 pro) or PCs. Battery life is pretty good (6 -7ish hours or so medium volume). Charging is via USB-C which is decently quick. Bluetooth range seems pretty good too, 30 – 35 feet.

    I think it sounds pretty decent. I have found with most Speakers for some reason you can’t hear them until they get to like 40% volume which is weird to me. I like the bass, it’s good for office use. It can get loud in enclosed space but once you go outside it doesn’t sound loud enough for me. I’d recommend I got mine for like 80 something dollars I wouldn’t pay more than a hundred.

    I was quite pleased with the sound of the speakers given there size and price. Not your $400 larger Sonos Move, but quite good and will be great for travel where they could be damaged. Bought two so I could pair and get stereo as well as more sound when outdoors. Have not used enough to comment on battery life.

    I use mine speaker for video conferencing on my computer. It works great. I can put it in the middle of the room for others to hear the conversation. It has plenty of volume and everyone can hear. I have recommended this speaker to my coworkers.

    I like a full dynamic range of sound so I can listen to classical music without distortion. Thanks to the Sony Music Center App and I am a happy camper! Thank you Sony!!

    Warm klingend und kompaktDer Lautsprecher kam gut verpackt und von Amazon , wie gewohnt, pünktlich zugestellt bei mir an. Nach dem auspacken fiel sofort die hochwertige Verarbeitung des Gerätes auf. Da das Gerät schon vorgeladen war, konnte ich es sofort mit meinem Handy verbinden. Das funktionierte völlig problemlos. Mit Hilfe der Sony APP kann man Klangeinstellungen vornehmen. Dabei hat man sich auf einen Dreiband Equalizer beschränkt, was das ganze auf das wesentliche konzentriert und vereinfacht. Den Klang würde ich als warm und knackig bezeichnen. Man kann stundenlang hören und genießen. Erstaunlich wie tief dieser kompakte Lautsprecher, bei moderatem Pegel, in den Basskeller reicht. Wie jedem Lautsprecher, sollte man auch diesem eine gewisse Einspielzeit gönnen. Es lohnt sich.Ich habe den Kauf dieses Gerätes keine Minute bereut. Ich kann den Lautsprecher uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen 👍

    Solid performer and build qualityI bit the bullet for this speaker as a result of looking for something we could link up phones and DAPs to while enjoying the weather sitting in our garden with friends and family for BBQ’s etc, and for linking up a bluetooth turn table to for playing some old vinyl records as opposed to running cables around our room to hook up hard wired speakers, and I have to say it performs better than its price would suggest. The build quality goes without saying from a Sony product, but the performance quality is surprisingly good for the price. We’ve had to turn it down on a few occasions as its loud if you want it to be. Now, for any audio nerds out there, there will be the critic’s mentions of highs, lows, mids etc, but lets be realistic here, its a portable bluetooth speaker, if you want HiFi quality, why on earth are you looking at portable speakers(?). From my hands on experience with this speaker, it does not produce a cheap and tinny sound, good bass, good clarity and nothing short of doing exactly what I want it to do, in fact, it goes beyond what my expectations were for it.Very happy with this purchase.
