The new sony speakers sound a little better, they had no problems pairing with my htc 10, or my iPhone 8. Added functionality of stereo setup or dual speakers is nice. That's the good.
The bad! I can stand 3 ft from the speaker and have music cutting in and out. I used to put my old phillips on my tool box and walk 15ft away. Still streaming. The sony speakers have connection problems in the same room. Was trying to see if there is firmware update or something but no luck yet.
Keep in mind I bought 2 and it happens with both.
Just today I received three Harman Kardon speakers - a Traveller, and a small and large Esquire 2 - and I'm already packing them up to return. The Sony is better. All three HKs have the typical flat packaging, but the Sony is obviously shaped like a cylinder with a passive radiator on the bottom, and presumably a lot of space inside for reverberation. The Sony packs better bass than all but the large HK Esquire 2, while also having less abrasive treble because the speaker is pointing up instead of directly at me. Perhaps some people think this would cause a muddy sound, but small speakers tend to exacerbate high frequency distortion and clipping, so not having the speaker pointing right at me actually results in a much more pleasant sound. Plus, the Sony is much better for travel than the HKs as it is wrapped in rubber. The HKs are certainly more luxurious, with leather and chrome and whatnot, but the whole idea of a bluetooth speaker is portability and durability. My Sony has no marks from being dropped because the whole thing is rubber!
I've also tried other speakers by Klipsch, Wonderboom, Anker, and several cheap Chinese brands. The Sony sounds better and is a more portable design than the Klipsch (which has a larger speaker, two passive radiators, and is twice as heavy) and the Wonderboom (which is larger and heavier) and is cheaper than both. The cheapo products were just that and were returned immediately.
I would gladly buy another of these Sony speakers at full price and in a color other than black, but the one I already have has been excellent, outshined its price point, and just won't quit working. It might not be waterproof like the Wonderboom but I like to listen to music when *I'm* in the shower, not when the speaker is in the shower.
I have not tried Bose travel speakers yet, although I do own a Revolve+ back home (and an A20 aviation headset which packs more sound quality than any studio headset I've ever worn). It's excellent, but it should be because its five times the size of this Sony and I would never consider travelling with it. Based on my experiences so far, I highly doubt the Sony-sized Bose speakers will be able to justify their price. Harman Kardon did a wonderful thing with the Aura 2 tabletop speaker but Sony has definitely outshined them when it comes to travel and durability. This little thing might be the best travel/laptop bluetooth speaker on the market.
For Double or Stereo mode there are two separate pairings that have to happen.
1) Pair one of the speakers to your phone via holding the power button until tones made then pair your phone
2) Pair the two speakers to each other via holding the Add button until tones made, first on one speaker and then repeat on second speaker
If you pair both speakers to your phone then only one will be actively connected and both will show with the same name. After your pair the two speakers then the Add, volume +/-, and power off buttons on either speaker will actually control both speakers, power on is still separate though.
The stereo function is just fine, the bass is slight, enough to shake my table.
One thing you should know is that if the output of your device is mono and use the stereo mode, only one speaker will do its job, the other one is muted. So you have to press add to bring both speakers back to do equal job.
Edit: I edited this because I now managed to link it with the Echo Dot. It worked perfectly fine. The issues were actually from my poor understanding of how to use the Echo Dot. + pics for anyone who interested in my dual stereo set up.

* Good sound. Not as powerful as my Bose Soundlink Color, but less boomy, which I prefer when listening to talk radio or documentaries, for example.
* They work as promised in stereo. Can even flip sides with a button or force mono mode even when twinned.
* Well designed, nice looking, sturdy.
* Compact and light.
* Buttons (labelled in grey type) are very hard to see except in full daylight or under a lamp.
* Many others have mentioned this: the casing is a dust magnet.
* Volume control is stepped in large increments when using the buttons on the speaker. Better to use the volume control on the source device if finer control is desired.
* Biggest disappointment: I can't use them, as I was planning to, with my tablet when watching videos because the sound is delayed by almost a full second relative to the picture (side effect of the Bluetooth synchronisation between the two speakers).
But for my purpose I couldn’t adjust any EQ, so any music has to be played below level 6 volume (out of 10) on my Alexa.
If you’re tone deaf and have no idea what music is supposed to sound like, this may be the Bluetooth speaker for you. But I guarantee you won’t hear anything from it in a public space outside!! You’ll just hear distortion and “noise” — well, unless you buy two and then strap them to your head like ear muffs.
The battery life is decent. I had it going for about 8-9hrs today to test it (at 60% volume).
The buttons to control the speaker are sorta invisible; you have to look for the symbols and just press-in there. Basically no protruded buttons. So in the dark.. good luck.
Pairing was a breeze. As soon as you turn it on it’s in pairing mode and looking for a device to pair too. No pins etc. but, I didn’t try unpairing and repairing to another device yet. So that may turn out to be more complicated — I’m not sure.
So finally, if you’re looking for a small speaker to listen to music in a small bedroom, or library — this is the speaker for you! Ignore this “awesome bass” BS that’s promoted all over this product; it only results in massive distortion from the speaker. You can get MUCH better sounding bass and mids from a $80 BT Speaker elsewhere here on Amazon! Not this one!
I’ll be returning it tomorrow. For my sole simple purpose (making my Alexa Spot/Dot sound a bit better), this speaker should have been easily enough — but it wasn’t.. by far. The speaker that’s in my Alexa Spot is actually much better on its own.
EDIT: 6 months later. At medium volume it sounds nice but at higher levels it produces too much bass and really distorts the sound.
Yo tengo el gusto de siempre llevar la música conmigo, pero por ahora me quedó a deber Sony :(
La bocina estéticamente es muy bonita, tiene una pequeña base para que la puedas poner acostada y tiene una gran ventaja que es a prueba de agua, el material del que está cubierto se me figura como tipo goma o silicón para que pueda repeler el agua. Te dejo algunas imagenes para que veas como luce.
Only issue is if you have two different devices you use for pairing. You have to “forget” the speaker on one device before being able to pair with another device or it will continue to try to pair with the first device (even if Bluetooth is off).
It has a 3.5mm port, but doesn't include a cable, which to me seems a bit odd. I had one lying around to use. Also the included cable for charging feels super cheap (though maybe I'm spoiled by nice Anker cables) so I just tossed it out.
I'll give it a 4 because it slightly exceeded my expectations in sound quality. If it was a little cheaper, included the 3.5mm cable and had a higher quality charging cable, I'd probably bump it to 5.
En cuanto a la Bocina, bueno, me anime por 2 cosas, las opiniones que habian dejado aquí (mayoría buenas opiniones) y porque estaba barata por lo del Buen fin.
He tenido bocinas Bose, Philips, Logitech, Harman Kardon y hago la comparación de esta bocina Sony con esas marcas. Bueno, esta bocina Sony en general se oye bien, sonido algo fuerte y aunque venga con el sistema para bajos, no es mucho mucho lo que se oyen los bajos, pero al menos tienen un poco mas de bajos que los Logitech o Philips que tengo en tamaño similar y eso da un sonido más amplio en la bocina. Si esperan buenos buenos graves honestamente no los tendran. Ésta bocina Sony se asemeja un poco a unas Bose de tamaño pequeño que son de varios colores, no recuerdo el modelo exacto, pero esas Bose tienen tienen un poco mas de graves que ésta sony.
Bueno, estoy cómodo con ella, al menos suena mas fuerte que las Logitech que tenia, ya es ganancia y para el precio que pagué por ellas(casi $700), pues está muy bien, si costara los mas de $1000 que dice sony que cuesta, pues creo que se pagaría mucho por ella.
Eso si, el sistema de graves trata de producir mas graves, si no se oyen, se sienten en la bocina, solo una mnera de hacer que se escuchen esos graves que produce seria poniendo la bocina encima de un mueble o caja, ya que las bocina de graves apunta hacia abajo y la caja amplifica esos graves que no se oyen tanto jeje. Repito, si se oyen un poco mas de graves que cualquier bocina barata de ese tamaño pero también no esperen mucho mas por el tamaño. :)
