Rated 1 out of 5 Excellent sound..for the hour that it worked
I'm in the military and will be leaving on a trip soon so I decided to look into a wireless speaker to boost the audio quality of the movies on my iPad. I spent 2 days researching all the options available and this came out on top over the Bose Soundlink Mini and UE Boom, seemed like a no brainer to me. I received the speaker in 2 days (thanks, Amazon Prime) and tested it out, worked flawlessly and I was stoked to have this ready to come with me on my trip. I shut it off to let it charge while I watched some hockey and after about 5 hours I went to turn it back on so I could show it off to my wife.....no dice. Didn't help me justify spending $200 on a "toy" as she called it. I just got some flashing from the orange 'charge' light then it shut off, wouldn't pair with any devices or play anything. After a few minutes of this, the lights stopped coming on all together. This testing was all done while the unit was plugged into the wall and after it had more than the recommended amount of time to fully charge. It has since been shipped back to Amazon and it's looking like I won't have a wireless speaker to bring with me on my trip. I'm extremely disappointed in Sony on this one, I've got a Sony surround sound system in my bedroom and have a Sony premium audio system in one of my cars - never had issues with either of those systems. I suppose I'll have to try out the Bose and see if I can actually get a product that will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyle0325 the perfect speaker
I wont add too much else, as there are a few reviews for this product already, but I have to say.. 1st time hearing the audio that came out of this small speaker was amazing. Its very crisp and clear, and can get pretty loud. Great for larger rooms or at small parties. And the Bass! It wont be the most earth shattering sounds ever, but, for something this size, its very incredible and does pack some punch, any audiophiles will be pretty pleased. I personally think this will be great for some gaming nights in the garage or on the back patio. Was also easy to sync up with my Xperia tablet and Zl phone with the nfc built in, which comes in handy for movies and games on those devices.. Which I would highly recommend.
To end: Im very happy with my purchase. I would love to hear what the bigger, higher end models sound like, I bet even 'bassy-er' and better, but the US $200 price tag was about as high as I wanted to go for a portable speaker. Very worth it though.

Bluetooth connection is solid, and the sound is incredible. People cannot believe the bass that you can feel coming out of this speaker. Small enough to take to work and bring home everyday and battery lasts well beyond a work day. Nothing bad to say about this speaker.

Purchased this speaker for the kitchen. Was looking for something that was easy to move around the house and would not break the bank. I love this speaker. great sound and the kids love to steal it for watching movies on the tablet.
well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FlimbS Great sound, easy to use, compatability problem
Pros: Looks great, sounds bigger than it is, surprisingly I thought it actually sounded better than the srs-x7.
Cons: Speakerphone function does not work with my Samsung Note 3 phone. It does with an iPhone 5. Not sure how many phones it will be incompatible with..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bartman Good Speaker, Good Range
Love the speaker and the fact that it works with all my Bluetooth devices. My problem is that it only has the one power cord for charging. I don't like carrying the cord around everywhere I go and I have a tendency to break power cords. It would be nice if this were a universal connection so I could get another one as a back-up/spare.
