Treble frequencies dip a little at 5khz and start to drop off above 10khz. Extra Bass enhances the low end frequencies well, but may be too strong at close range (3ft) at lower volumes. In other words, they are not crystal clear or crisp, but by no means muddy. For BT speakers these speakers sound excellent.
The speaker will last 15-17 hrs at 75% volume (lights off).
For a good speaker, I feel they lack some functionality. Battery indication is only present by holding down the button and voice announces battery level, or, in the Sony Music Center app.
No power indication lights on unit, or even the BT icon in staus bar. The indication is also only in approximated increments of 25%.
Also, No Micro USB to charge the unit, instead charges with a proprietary A/C pin power adapter (inconvenient).
The Sony Media Center app that is compatible to control the XB30 is also a bit laggy or glitchy and takes a bit of effort to use. But works for the basic function.
Overall really happy with the purchase, and highly reccomend buying two for stereo playback if you are an audiophile.
I was going to buy a Bose, but took a chance on this one. I'm glad I did and saved about $70. This sounds great. It's nice to have a separate button for bass boost because it's a feature that I rarely use - it only sounds good in certain circumstances. You can also adjust the sound through the app, so you can tweak it to your preference (within reason).
The lights are fine, but not that interesting to me.. even late at night.
The best feature is its battery life. Rated at 24 hours, I haven't tested it to the end of the battery, but I have used this far more than my last one and still had 50% remaining.
There are 2 minor things that I don't like. 1) compared to my last bluetooth speakers, this doesn't have an independent volume adjustment from the bluetooth setting. My other bluetooth speakers had a volume level, and the bluetooth volume was separate. It's not a huge deal, but... what it does mean is that using the volume + and - on my iPhone is far less useful because the increment is too much. If it had independent volume, I could turn it down on the XB30, which would make the increment less for each click. As it is, I find myself having to use the slider instead (which means I have to pull it out of my pocket and look at it, rather than just using the buttons).
The other thing that surprised me is that it doesn't have a USB charger. I use this remotely.. I have USB chargers on 12v batteries in the two places I use this the most. But when it comes time to charge, I have to bring it to a 110v outlet. Curiously, the charging port is 5v, so it would mean they could throw in a USB adapter and have both options. Of course, I plan on making one, but I shouldn't have to. It's not the end of the world, but it is puzzling to me. This seems like something only an electronics giant like Sony would do. Old school thinking is that everything runs off of AC. But these days, USB ports are everywhere.
EDIT: this USB cable works for charging: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KPN1NKM/
The lights are a cool feature for parties or the kiddos but can be turned off when they are not needed.
It is about the size of a medium water bottle and has some heft which is nice. The finish is top notch.
I have had zero pairing issues and the range seems good. My only complaint is that if it re-pairs after walking out of range it resets to a midlevel volume which scares the &$@; out of me every time. I wish the app allowed you to preset the starting volume like you can the EQ.
Otherwise a great speaker.

6.water protect 5x it's work i will try it it's 100% shower proof
8.it's a good thing to use your speaker in song pal app.
But i need more quality speaker just like boombox
This is no biggie though as it can obviously still be used via bluetooth. (Connecting was simple as most bluetooth devices are. The first time is showed up and paired no problem, however I have found that sometimes I have to press the power button for it to show up and pair.)
The sound is excellent for a relatively small and light speaker. It's clear and yet still goes quite loud without any sign of distortion. I've used it outside to do some yardwork and it still sounded clear and full while I worked away in the distance.
The extra bass button does definitely increase the bass which is nice for most music I find. It gives it a fuller sound.
The flashing lights are fun for a party atmosphere but can be easily turned off and back on, by pressing and holding the bass button down for a few seconds. (The lights initially seemed random to me, but with songs with more bass and drums it does actually sync and light up in rhythm to the music. The outer ring changes colour constantly and then there are also some bright white led lights at either end that also blink on and off. See my video that's in with my photos on this review.)
This speaker is water resistant which is a nice feature to have in a cordless bluetooth speaker, for taking by the pool or hot tub etc. (It's water resistant, not waterproof, so it will not likely survive being dropped in water. It can likely just handle some splashing and spraying. (If it gets wet, wipe it with a dry towel and then simply let it air dry. Don't use a hair dryer or anything on it.) AND ensure the back flap that covers the charging connection is securely closed and sealed.) It has a nice grippy feel to it, to make it less likely to slip out of your hand and drop it while carrying it around.
If you get more than one of these, you can link them up via bluetooth to have music in different zones, which is also nice for a party effect, or if you're just working in different areas. The manual states the maximum bluetooth range is 30 ft (but that depends on obstacles and magnetic fields etc..)
I did download Sony's SongPal app, but honestly didn't find it any more useful than any other music app I already use. I'm sure it's usefulness comes into play much more when you're setting up multiple speakers.
This unit includes:
- a built-in microphone so you can make and answer calls handsfree with it.
- A USB jack OUT, so you can charge your phone with this device - which is a handy AWESOME feature if you're in a pinch!
- a lithium ion battery (also awesome and a must these days) and lasts up to 24 hours depending on volume. (24 hours at a lower volume and the light feature turned off. At maximum volume and light on, the battery life is 4 hours.)
- a charging, power cable
Just a few comments from the supplied Sony Reference Guide:
- When using this (or any speaker really) outside, avoid keeping it direct sunlight as that can obviously get pretty hot and can aversely affect any electronic device. Use between 5ºC - 35ºC. Higher than 41ºC it may shut down to protect itself.
- Do not use any alcohol, benzine, or thinner to clean the exterior as this will likely eat away at the coating. (Only use a slightly damp cloth to wipe it down. No soap. Nothing but water.)
At $179.99 (at the time of this review) it's a solid unit that won't disappoint especially if you're a Sony die-hard fan.
I couldn't find anything wrong with this unit.
I'm settling in at 4 stars instead of 5 because there are simply some features that I can't or won't use. (I don't need flashing lights, and more often than not will turn them off, plus at this point in time I don't have or need multiple speakers that will sync together. So for those reasons, I personally wouldn't spend extra of my hard-earned cash to get those features, but if these are important to you, you might find yourself giving it 5 stars.)
If you don't mind spending a few extra dollars, you can't go wrong with this speaker.
No regrets choosing this one!
It has the right size and battery life.
The lights are a neat feature, but do not seem to directly affect the battery life at all. With or without lights, it goes just as long.
What I really like, is the sound. Not only does it sound good from default with nice bass, but the Sony Music Center app lets you control exactly how it plays your tunes.
Well done on this one, Sony!
Compré la bocina de importación y me llegó en aproximadamente 4 días en un buen empaque
En cuanto a la bocina está esamblada de un material que si bien evita que se resbale se ensucia rápidamente, pero es resistente y se limpia fácil
El sonido de la bocina es excelente tiene un buen balance y se escucha una separación estéreo, los graves es en donde en el modo Xtra bass alcanza a distorsionar en el volumen máximo , pero con la app música center se puede ecualizar o con el ecualizador interno de la fuente se puede cambiar,fuera de eso los graves son buenos , los agudos se escuchan bien no tiende a mezclar los sonidos.
Depende de la fuente el audio es distinto, la probé un una fuente de salida en códec sbc 44khz,16bits y aac 96,32bits y se alcanza a escucha una diferencia en el sonido.
Los efectos de luz son buenos y se pueden configurar por medio de la aplicación de música Center.
La duración de la batería es buena en volumen máximo alcanzo las 5 horas y 45 minutos aproximadamente y a un nivel medio alcanzo las casi 21 horas, depende de la fuente de audio, el volumen y los efectos de luz
Lo único malo que le veo es que no tiene radio y no se puede reproducir música por USB .
