This speaker lowers the volume as soon as battery goes down and CAN NOT be used while it is charging. I have owned many bluetooth speakers and never had such an issue. I called Sony and they claimed it's a product LIMITATION, but they stand behind this product. No one should own a speaker that is unusable while charging. That it is 3 or 4 hours. It should work while the speaker is charging. Please go with something else like BOSE or another brand. One of the representatives from SONY admitted that the number one complain on their center (operating from El Salvador) is related to this speaker. They are so well groomed in how to defuse the situation that it is shameful. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT PLEASE.
After researching a ton of portable, mid-tier options, I bought a pair of XB31s to use in stereo mode. Once synced, they provide clear stereo separation, and the light show feature (if activated) links up as well. I was a little nervous about the range, because the documentation I found online says the speakers need to be within a meter of each other to work in stereo, but that's true only during the initial set up. Once they're synced, you can put them as far apart as you like (within reasonable Bluetooth range, of course) and continue getting the stereo effect.
Heck yea worth every preorder penny!!! Love this little dude like I love all of my JBL's!!! This thing is epic it's literally like A mid sized all-in-one speaker! Has always been curious About buying one of Sony's speakers just to give it a shot but last year's models styling was just not my taste! But when I 1st laid eyes On this on CES video on YouTube It caught my Eyes, I said this is it this is going to be my 1st Sony speaker! Man am I glad I ordered this it stole first place for my favorite mid sized Bluetooth speaker but JBL charge 3 is still on its tail in second place. Referring back to the statement all-in-one having a light show being a portable battery bank as well As the durability In really good stereo sound with the nicely spaced apart drivers! The speaker is described by Sony is a fun speaker and they are right in the dark with the lights flashing it's really cool and also what they mean by phone they are probably aiming at in audience that likes party music R&B hip hop and EDM trap, It please them all like they're supposed to be heard especially in the live sound mode which Definitely seems tailored to these specific gen' Definitely seems tailored to these specific Genre's. The app works well with it for changing the lights and music settings works A-OK on my S8 plus! Awesome large room filling sound while managing to keep bass present is excellent for a speaker this size! I thought I would have to wait for JBL charge 4 but nope this took the spot at least for now!
Abismal instructions for what appears to be a versatile unit. Had to search online for awhile before I was able to find a downloadable pdf and print a well written 89 page instruction manual. All this set me back a couple of days in being able to use it effectively. Biggest gripe is it did not come with a power supply/charger. All that was supplied was an 18" usb to micro usb cable! Seriously not long enough to reach from a wall outlet to the floor. You are advised to find yourself a charger capable of 1.5 amps+. While you are at it get a 6'+ cable that will allow you to leave the unit plugged in near where you plan to use it. So add these to the price of the unit which is already pretty high. Yes it is a Sony...but guess what....it is made in China :( The unit has some gimmiky features like lights flashing to the music or being able to tap the unit to the beat to add some precussion. Useless to me but who knows, it may be what some like. Oh, and good luck turning the light feature off (default is on) without finding that 89 page instruction manual online. It does have the ability to bluetooth several of these units together which is a good feature but remember you will need to purchase a charger and cable for each. If the unit came with an appropriate charger and 6' cable and sufficient instructions for the same price I might would have given it 4 stars....maybe.
It’s the go-to speaker for Trance and EDM.
I never thought of that a Bluetooth Speaker could have a quality like Home theater. It's a speaker which is not only cheaper but also provide the best Output result without loosing its bass and vocals. I assure you that you will never find speaker like that in this price. Its Bass is like punching you if you play this in a room. I don't have words for that. It's worth for money you spend.
- good build quality
This speaker pumps out some good sounds for being so small. I'd have liked a longer sleep timer on it because I use it in work presentations and it keeps switching off, but other than that it's a nice speaker. I'd also like Sony to stop using code names for their devices; my Bluetooth list is too full of S, X, 100 and the rest! I'm glad I was able to turn the disco lights off, though, not too effective at work!
Awesome speakers!!! Make sure to download the Sony Music Centre app. Bass is heavy and Live Sound preset is admirable. For low bass fans there is a Standard preset. There is a basic Equalizer in the app. This speaker has many great features. You will be shocked to hear the amazing sound this little speaker produces and also enjoy the amazing light show. Overall worth the money.
