Sony SRS-XB41 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker : The sound is actually excellent

Great little speaker, wish i’d bought another so i could link them together (although i doubt the neighbours would approvelights are a nice touch and the sound quality is good. I have only charged these once and so far have had around 12 hours (possibly more) of play put if them over the last two weeks. Syncs to my phone easy enough. Would buy again and would recommend to others.

My hopes were too high with this. I love the design and the lights but it’s awfully quiet in my opinion, the bass is meh too, i can hear more bass outside the room than i can in the room and it’s mids aren’t that impressive. The battery life is also short with the lights on, does improve with them off.

Love it, use it all the time. The sound is amazing, the lights are berfect for party’s, the bass is perfect. I bought a carry case for it, which i would recommend if you plan on taking it anywhere. I probably wouldn’t have bought it if it was full price, it was half price when i bought it and i had a gift card as well.

Was worried about sound but is excellent and i am very pleased with it. If your download is good quality then this speaker shines in performance. It cannot make a bad download and good one. Is also has a great volume range especially if used inside the house. Like all speakers, if you put on a cabinet etc it will cause vibrations in the cabinet as sound is so good. Don’t listen to anyone who says it is bad as they must be looking sound studio quality. Would recommend to anyone who wants to use for inside the house or outside whilst having a party.

Compact, brilliant sound and excellent base.

Worth ever pennymy teenager absolutely love it and takes it everywhere with her. The party boasts effect is added fun to it.

 amazing speaker , fantastic sound , great lights. Just like your own private mini discomy husband loves this.

Love the look of this and the sound quality, the lights are brilliant and it is also very mesmerising watching them while listening to the music. Haven’t tried the waterproof side of it as yet but no doubt it will get tested, highly recommend.

  • Underwhelmed by sound and unfortunately product was faulty
  • Good sound quality – and it’s no surprise as I
  • Nice little speaker, loud enough for a small house party.

Made up with it from the offorgasmic bass and there’s an app to control bass and treble. Good sound quality – and it’s no surprise as i had once had a sony hi fi and the sound and bass on that was of high quality.

Sound is clear and bass is excellent. One of the best purchases i have ever made.

Looks great, reacts to sound property (maybe some work needed to podcast recognition?)it’s too bassy. Very good if the goal is to have deep bass sound. Not the best sound if the aim is in the balance.

Sony has done justice on this speaker great sound love the lights rugged design and for half price even better.

Great product that can be used with so many devices and moved from room to room or even outdoors.

Love it – this thing lasts forever, great volume, great bass.

I was in the market for a portable bluetooth speaker with a bit of oumph and stumbled across this beauty. It was in the black friday sale( £100) so thought it was worth a shot. – for most electronic music this speaker sounds good, the bass is tight but somewhat underwhelming at lower frequencies and thus overcompensated by mid-bass frequencies that tend to make the mids and highs sound muddy. This could be due to my individual product that was faulty ( more on that later), but from other reviews, i have read it sounds like a common theme. It gets very loud and would be suitable for a gathering of people where music quality is not of utmost importance, but for when you are casually listening at home/ in the garden, something is just lacking. This runs true with other music genres particularly rather than edm. – the lights are fantastic, initially, i thought these were going to be gimmicky and just a clever marketing ploy, but after having them i found myself staring at them more often than not. They beat match pretty well and provide a nice ambience ( when programmed in the sony music app) for aesthetic appeal. Top marks – build quality is solid, the mesh feels nice and rugged, waterproof and dustproof, no complaints here.

Sounds great and has enough bass for what we want. We use it mainly in our bedroom and it’s sound easily fills the room. Connecting to bluetooth can be a bit fussy sometimes with my phone (not sure if it’s the speaker or my phone). The kids love the flashing lights on the speaker, but i always turn them off when using it – too much of a gimmick and it disturbs my sleep. Would have given 5 stars if it was under £100.

Sony SRS-XB41 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass, 24 Hours Battery Life and Lighting Effects – Blue

Got this for my boyfriend as a birthday present in december. The sound quality is amazing and despite its smaller size can get very loud and volume goes up a lot. Haven’t tested whether its waterproof, but i imagine will inevitably happen at a party. Definitely recommend as speaker just to have at home and as portable speaker too.

As i have only received it yesterday, can not comment on battery life. But everything is top class.

The speaker has lost its bass. I have been using it for two months. I have not played it at excessive volume, besides, the louder you play it the less bass you get anyway, which i assume is a feature to protect the drivers. I cannot return as i have got rid of box etc. This was a great sounding speaker for size and price, however i would not buy another one due to it only keeping it’s performance for two months.
