Sony's $100 SRS-XB23 speaker delivers solid audio for its size and price in an outdoor-friendly, waterproof design.
Powerful bass depth and crisp highs in a compact design, Can switch from mono to stereo playback, Rugged, waterproof build
Not for those seeking serious bass depth
Sony’s punchy new XB23 EXTRA BASS portable Bluetooth (BT) sound tube is a worthy competitor in the jungle of similar products, and at about $100, it is priced right.
Nearly every manufacturer has ventured into the world of wireless portable speakers but only a few managed to stand out. Include Sony in that list, since the company has continuously offered different wireless speaker lineups that come in different sizes and features.
Where Sony have set themselves apart is the great battery life, great sound that can be tuned to your needs and a chassis that will almost certainly take a beating. Coming in at $159.00 it’s a great investment for someone looking for a really good, portable speaker without spending the earth.
Now, comparisons with Ultimate Ears and JBL are inevitable. Frankly, these occupy different niches. First, it’s a Sony, and that counts. Next, these are, in my opinion, quite a step up from the 20190 range in terms of audio quality.
Mono or stereo or stereo pair, Rugged and waterproof, Lights on XB-33 and XB43 add fun, One of the better and more flexible apps
None really – they get the tick
The Sony Extra Bass XB23 ticks all the boxes for durability, design, value and audio quality and should be the first thing in your bag when you walk out the door.
Convenient design and shape, Waterproof and dustproof, Impressive Extra Bass quality
Weaker without Extra Bass option on
The entry-level Sony SRS-XB23 boasts a new design that moves the passive radiators to the top and bottom of the speaker with promising results. It doesn’t have the best sound quality in its class, but despite that it seems like an affordable outdoor speaker that most people will love.
Good sound quality..., Competitive price, Stereo pairing and Party Mode
...but not the absolute best, Lower peak volume, Unclear battery level alerts
I recently tried the XB23 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker and love it! The sound and quality of this speaker is great! I currently use this speaker in my office and use it to listen to both music and audio books. The sound is outstanding no matter what I listen to.
It is so easy to setup, it has speaker phone capability, it has a button to know the battery percentage, control the volume and party connect (i dont use this one yet) let me tell you, after been listen to my music just with my tablet and now with the speaker is huge difference, better sound, I can...
I charged this up and linked it to my phone and then tested it. Wow! Great clean crisp sound with great bass. It's light weight and easy to carry. I haven't tested how waterproof it is and don't plan to so I'll have to take their word on that. This is a well made speaker from a reputable company.
This is the best portable Bluetooth speaker I’ve ever owned! It has super clear sound and also has great base for such a reasonable size. It isn’t too large and clunky and I take it with me everywhere. The sound also travels well and can be used to play music throughout a large area!
I got the Sony XB23 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker to use in our garage for when we entertain. It works great and has good sound! We also plan to use it this next summer for poolside parties. I am very happy with the quality of this bluetooth speaker!
This speaker certainly didn't disappoint. Sound quality is excellent for the size of rooms I'm using it in, and I like the fact that it's so portable. Pick it up by its strap and move it somewhere else and back again.
Great sound which is why I always buy Sony and I’m never disappointed.
I bought this 3 weeks ago - pairs with MAC & Alex echo with no problems -remembers the last device paired so very useful. Remember to use the charging lead that comes with it otherwise my not charge.
Thinking buying a second one to have all round sound on Sunday.
Good product exciting sound quality
