Let’s check out Sony’s tiny little boomer.
With the plethora of Bluetooth speakers available, it is impossible not to get confused as to which one is the best. Sure you can get the unbranded ones that go for less than 100 AED, or you can choose something a little that could give you more.
Sony’s SRS-XB10 is a small speaker about the size of a small grenade (don’t worry it doesn’t look like one). It’s rugged and water-resistant, making it an ideal companion for those outdoor picnics by the pool. It even has a strap so you can hang it anywhere and use Bluetooth to stream your tunes. The SRS-XB10 can also pair up with the same SRS-XB10 speaker so it can work in stereo mode.
The rubberized exterior of the SRS-XB10 make it easy to grip and carry around. It also helps keep the speaker in place whatever surface you may put it on. The problem though is that the material easily attracts dust – but thankfully you can simply wash it away.
Main controls are located on the side including playback and pairing options for Bluetooth. There’s also NFC to make the pairing process easier. A covered port will reveal the 3.5 mm audio jack along with the micro USB that is used for charging.
Any device that supports Bluetooth will be able to connect to the SRS-XB10. Sound is definitely heavier on the bass side, which works well especially if you’re outdoors. It’s still a small speaker, so don’t expect it to replace your boom box anytime soon. Vocals are detailed and overall, it offers a great sound output compared its lesser-priced rivals.
But the 16-hour battery life is the one thing that made us love the SRS-XB10. With that amount of juice, you’re ready to enjoy hours of tunes just from a single charge.
For 199 AED, the Sony SRS-XB10 brings all the beats in a small handy and waterproof package.
