Sony H.ear Go

 

The Sony H.ear Go is a decent wireless speaker that tries to do too much and comes up short on audio performance.

Can stream over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Built-in speakerphone, along with multiple audio inputs and the ability to stream hi-res audio files.

Overly sculpted audio performance. Light on accessories. Far more buttons and controls than necessary.

While the H.ear Go is a decent speaker, nothing about it would compel me to spend $200 when there are so many superior options available, in terms of both audio performance and operation. All those extra features become more or less pointless when a...

SONY h.ear go SRS-HG1B Portable Wireless Smart Sound Speaker - Black

 

Awesome sound for a small speaker. I have 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs when playing music and they work very well with my tv surround sound.

Took a while to set up as had to do a software update over wifi before i could use them and there were no instructions to follow.

SONY h.ear go SRS-HG1B Portable Wireless Smart Sound Speaker - Black

 

The odd time that we have managed to get sound out of this product, it id punchy for such a small speaker.

This was bought to pair with Sony Soundstage to play through the tv. It does work ok but needed another for stereo so bought another. Getting these 3 products to pair has been desperate and we're still trying. As an independent speaker playing music...

SONY h.ear go SRS-HG1 Portable Wireless Smart Sound Speaker - Yellow

 

The colour is bold and pleasing... the sound quality is probably the best it could be for a small wireless speaker and the "extra bass" option does make a noticeable dofference. The speaker also holds charge for a decent amount of time allowing you to...

The name of the colour... lime yellow... confusing! Limes are normally green... although at a glance the speaker does look more green than yellow :)

SONY h.ear go SRS-HG1P Portable Wireless Smart Sound Speaker - Pink

 

Google Cast (Chromecast) gives better quality and prevents battery drain associated with Bluetooth audio. Also works as USB speaker.

Shame Sony don't make a Chromecast headphone that operates like this.

SONY h.ear go SRS-HG1B Portable Wireless Smart Sound Speaker - Black

 

REally good once hooked upto WIFI or Bluetooth, extra bass button is really good. Sound quality is very good over the volume range. Bought on a Black Friday deal so price was the best on the day.

Needed to load phone app to configure the device, its easy to us. There is a PC option too. The paper manual is not quite to the highest sony standards and can be a little confusing. I used the sony website product help and it was much clearer.
