What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony SRS-XB41 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass, Black
  • This is my go to speaker to throw into my bag most of the time. I wouldn't want anything bigger for a portable speaker.
  • The size is not too big and is comfy to carry.
  • The sound quality is amazing and despite its smaller size can get very loud and volume goes up A LOT.
  • Great speaker, with a lovely sound and amazing bass for its size.
  • What I like best though is the size, weight and feel of it. It feels so robust and modern.
Sony SRS-XB31 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass - Black
  • For the size of the unit it sounds suprisingly good (and loud), especially if you like bass heavy music
  • Amazing sound, one of the best I've heard in this sort of size.
  • I bought this for my daughter, who was always borrowing mine perfect size & sound for the average room.
  • The sound quality is great for the size of the speaker. Great for portability if you want to take it to the park or a party.
  • I am impressed. When I saw the size of this unit, I expected it to sound 'tinny': on the contrary, it has a superb bass tone and produces a sound compatible with much heftier speakers.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony SRS-XB41 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass, Black
  • The water proofing is great, sits in my bathroom most of the time if I'm not packing it away.
  • 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!
  • Love the sound, really quite loud and plenty of bass for a smallish speaker.
  • The App allow you to set the equalisation as you like it.
  • Lights are a great effect but do seem a little... chaotic. They respond very well to music but they do seem to respond to every sound, including lyrics, rather than just following a beat.
Sony SRS-XB31 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass - Black
  • It connects easily by Bluetooth to my phone, I downloaded the app that can be used to control the volume and lights.
  • if you want a really nice looking speaker with waterproof and dust proof OH get this for sure!!
  • The speaker connects automatically and has deep and good bass ! Competitive endurance as well.
  • Being IP67 waterproof and dustproof is a huge plus for us as we will definitely be using this for beach trips, so knowing sand or splashes of water won't damage it makes it the perfect beach companion.
  • The lights come on by themselves and i have struggled to connect on the sony music centre app also.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Sony SRS-XB41 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass, Black
  • You can charge with USB now in addition to the propritory Sony connector which saves on space if you take this around with you.
  • The thing I appreciate most of it, is that is recharged by usb as well as the AC power which is very important for me.
  • It has a USB on the back so you can plug your phone into it and it charges.
  • It too in turn can charge a device ie, your phone from it’s full size usb socket!
  • Doubles as a USB charging device, which is handy. Also no issues with it connecting to my Android phone, a consistently quick connection - quicker than other bluetooth speakers I own.
Sony SRS-XB31 Portable Wireless Waterproof Speaker with Extra Bass - Black
  • I use this alot and battery life is great, the Bluetooth and aux connectivity is great.
  • The USB out is a nice addition so you can use it as a powerbank for your phone and there's AUX in for flexibility of connection.
  • One of the best Bluetooth speakers I have ever had the pleasure to use. It connects easily via usb and reliably to any Bluetooth player.
  • My only hang up on this device is I wish it had a USB-C charging port as it would mean one less cable to carry around.
  • The only way I got good, uninterrupted, playback results, was to use a phono cable connection and not Bluetooth which, of course defeats the whole object.
