DESIGN:

On the box, it comes with a manual and charging adapter of 2.5Ampere. The Speaker comes in various trendy colors such as orange, black and blue. On the first impressions, the design of the speaker is nice and it is quite heavy to carry. This is IP certified splash resistant speaker. You can see the Sony branding on the left corner as well as the bottom.

It comes with an NFC logo. It got this rubber finish on all sides so that your speaker stays scratch-proof and can be placed in different angles. The overall casing is fiber and the speaker grill is metal. It is provided with an inbuilt mic for calling. Overall I felt it is a hard body that withstands for longer periods. These are the manual buttons.

PERFORMANCE:

When I played the music at high volumes it is giving good levels of bass without noise. I would say that this speaker gives an impressive audio quality with surprising bass levels. The bass levels increased instantly when I switched on the extra bass where the bass levels are quite punchy. The audio quality is mostly clear and doesn’t give any muffling sounds when I placed the speaker in a vertical position.

In all the positions it did a great job. You got this excellent Bluetooth range and you can play it from anywhere in your home. But one thing you will be disappointed is, it doesn’t have any voice prompts and you can’t know that the phone is connected to the speaker unless you would see a tiny blinking LED light. And No SD card support.

DESIGN:

Here we got the brand new speaker from the Sony Company for the year 2016 called Sony SRSXB2/BLK Bluetooth Speaker. And this is a very compact in size and got this nice mesh grill on the front, a little Sony logo there at the bottom and then you have sort of a plastic kind of surround.

The look of the device is really nice and compact. It’s just kind of an Oval shape and its sort of a map finish so it doesn’t really pickup fingerprints all there. This is kind of good. It is very kind of clean if you touch the top of the device.

PERFORMANCE:

The microphone is not at all good, we didn’t have much success, I was trying to send text messages, trying to look things up and it wasn’t reading  my voice, well so that is a little disappointing but it is a cool feature. There is a Bluetooth pairing button.

It is also provided with the extra base button. Your power button and the volume up and down button. The extra base button is going to add more bass to the music making it tailor made. And that worked pretty well because this is a small speaker and you are not going to get a ton of base out of it did a little bit more. For the bass lovers, it feels great.

The battery is going to support around 12hrs like they said. It has two speakers inside. Both about 1.65 inches in diameter, so they are small and do a pretty decent job with the mids and the highs.

Sony SRS-X55 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

12698.00

INTRODUCTION:

Sony makes a great return to offer the update to Sony SRS-X55 entire Bluetooth speaker line. Although physically that mush hasn’t been changed. The Sony still offers the Bluetooth speaker that looks completely different from most of others from the market. If you are into that more streamlined and modern look without any those colors or that radical styling then the Sony Bluetooth speakers are the ones for you.

DESIGN:

Sony hasn’t changed the size of the model when compared to the last years model. It still comes in a 8.8 inches wide, 4.8 inches tall and 2 inches thick. It does get slightly heavier weighing around 2.10 pounds versus 2.6 from last year. Because of its somewhat tall but narrow build, the way it does help a little bit and keeping this upright.

Now it takes some effort here to accidently knock it over. It is not prone to tipping constantly. Overall it’s still rock solid build here again with the entire front made up of aluminum and also back as well and as with last year the top is very fingerprint prone. But I think it looks gorgeous in my opinion it’s a mirror like finish that is slightly sensitive to fine scratches so just be aware of that but regarding the ones they still glow in that classy ambient LEED white.

Coming to the sound the audio gets loud fitting the medium and small rooms for sure with large rooms it still works decent but for more personal and intimate listening rather than entertaining over larger crowds now base is very well done considering Sony provides one big passive radiator along with two woofers. If you want a better base place the speaker at the corner of the room and let the bass reflect along the room.
