Sony SRS-XB3


A rugged portable speaker with a price that won't make you wince

A super-powerful and portable – if not always subtle – wireless speaker.

Sony SRS-XB3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony claims that its SRS-XB3 speaker can last up to 24 hours between charges, but is this a speaker that you'll want to listen to for hours on end? We sent it off to our test lab for the verdict.

Sony SRS-XB3


The Sony SRS-XB3 speaker delivers some of the best Bluetooth audio we've heard for the price, wrapped in a portable, outdoor-friendly design.

Fantastic audio performance with option to enhance bass levels. Portable, water-resistant design. Speakerphone functionality.

Lacks playback and track navigation buttons. Few cables included.

No matter the mode, the Sony SRS-XB3 provides a bass punch that we rarely hear in speakers this size and price. If you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker in the sub-$200 price range, this is the one to get—you can consider the water-resistant...

Sound is very clear and the base is clean.


The Speaker gets very loud and the sound is clear. The base really shines when you press the extra base button, however sound quality drops a little when at full volume with extra base on. Would definitely recommend.

Great speaker


Have only had this speaker 2/3 weeks but I'm really pleased with it. It connects easily, sounds great and seems robust. Charging also seems to last a long time but haven't challenged it yet. Really pleased I bought it.
