Sony SRS-XB3


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

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.
