Compact, powerful, deep and punchy sound, waterproof, dustproof with 7 eye-catching colours is the key features of XB 12.

XB12 is the upgraded version of XB 10. Both look almost the same, but there are few improvements that take place in XB 12. The significant change is IPX7 rating and HD calling.

XB 12 comes with an IPX7 rating. It means this Bluetooth speaker is fully waterproof. If you put the speaker underwater for a few minutes, there will not be any damage. That means there is no worry about water. You can enjoy the music near the pool, in the bathroom, on the beach etc.

Another upgrade is regarding calling. You can feel the changes taking place in voice quality. High Definition quality calling brings you to another level.

XB 12 powered with the passive radiator that works efficiently. It works along with the monaural speaker which ensures the bass a boost even its has a compact size.

The battery backup of XB 12 is another surprise for music lovers. It lasts about 15 hours if you put the volume up to 60%. At 90% volume, it backs up nearly 6-7 hours which is good enough as compared to others at this range. The average charging time that I found during my usage is 4 hours.

There are few buttons present on the side of the speaker. Volume up and down button, add device button, music play/pause button, calling button etc. A small LED also available for indication purpose near these buttons.

Two ports are covered with a tight removable seal out of which one is a micro USB port, and another is a 3.5mm audio jack to listen to the songs.

Overall if you are looking for a speaker with reasonable price having a long-lasting power backup, waterproof, and some good punchy sound with extra bass, this is the best option.

SRS XB 10 is the most affordable Bluetooth speaker from Sony. This speaker is available in different colours. When you unbox the XB 10, you will find the user manual, USB charging cable, and XB 10 speaker. 

XB 10 is very compact. You can place this speaker whenever you want like a backpack, or you can hang near your cycle handle.

The height of the speaker is 10.9 cm, the diameter is 8.6 cm, and the weight is around 260 gm. Built quality is imposing. The speaker is made up of plastic, but a thin layer of rubber all over the speaker ensures more grip. It also adds more attraction. A strap is there to hang the speaker. Also, it acts as a mini stand when you put the speaker horizontally on it.

If we talk about buttons, there are five buttons, i.e., A play/ pause button, add device button, volume down button, volume up button, and the last one is switched on/off button.

You can receive the calls with excellent noise cancellation. You can hear a clear voice without any interruption.

Sony claims the 16 hours of battery backup, which is something unbelievable. Trust me; if you put the volume around 50%, You will get 16 hours of power backup. Increasing the volume can reduce battery backup. For 90% volume, it lasts upto 9 hours. Overall this battery backup is very satisfying compared to its price.

Coming to sound quality, it’s ok. You will miss the premium quality sound of Sony. But, if you consider the price, it’s more than enough. Low and mids sound very impressive, while at the highs, it gets distorted. Extra bass feature produces a clear and punchy sound that everyone loves.

Overall, if you are looking for the Sony speaker having good battery backup, splashproof, compact and at an affordable price, this could be the best option.

XB30 is another Bluetooth speaker from the Extra bass series having a unique design. This speaker looks like a typical stereo music system. 

This speaker is a little bit heavy as compared to the previous model of this series like XB 21. It weighs almost 1.3 Kg which is more, but if you consider its size, there is no problem with the weight.

If you look at the speaker from the front, you will find a wire grille. Under this wire grille, two LEDs are placed at the left and the right side of the front side. 

At the top, there are a total of seven buttons. Call, play/pause, volume up, volume down and add device button. Despite these buttons, there are two large buttons; one is an Extra bass button, and another is of a switch on/off. 

By pressing the extra bass button, you can turn on/off lights. With the help of the call button, you can also activate google or Siri.

At the backside there is a rubber door under which a 3.5 mm audio jack, reset button, charging input and USB port to charge other devices is present.

XB 30 sounds much better at the low. Mids are punchy and well detailed. It gets very high without any distortion.

The extra bass button does increase the bass

Two passive radiators are placed in this speaker. One is at the front, and the other is at the back of the speaker.

Battery backup of this speaker is probably the best thing you will love the most. By turning lights off, you can enjoy 20 hours non stop music at medium sound.

Remember- This speaker is not waterproof, it’s just water resistance. That means it can handle the light spray of water. If you accidentally drop the speaker in deep water, it will damage.

Special edition for party animals.

Large in size but lightweight, flashing strobe, and multi-coloured line light are the main characteristics of this speaker.

If you look at the speaker, you think it would be more than one kg or more, but it weighs 898 grams. Built quality is superb, very excellent finishing. The high-quality fabric ensures its durability.

The sound quality is crisp and evident without cluttering the rest of the vocals. You can even catch complex beats in the background no matter whatever you are listening to. Extra bass works effectively to produce full and punchy sound.

The most surprising and unique feature of this speaker is it can be used as the snare, kick drum, cowbell etc. When you tap on your speaker at the different side, it makes a variety of sounds. You can tap lightly for a soft sound or hit for a loud one.

You can enjoy the music with 100 speaker’s chain by connecting them at a time with the help of Bluetooth.

XB 31 comes with an IP67 rating, which means this speaker can survive in 1-meter deep water for thirty minutes. It is also rated as dustproof.

The battery endures up 12 hours at medium sound, which is pretty good. You can save the battery by turning off the LED.

XB 31 also acts as a power bank as it comes with a USB connection located under the rubber flap along with charging port and audio jack. You can charge any USB compatible device.

Sony Music Centre App is there to control the bass from your smartphone. With the help of this app, you can control every beat of the music.

XB 21 is Bluetooth speakers specially made for electronic dance music (EDM) along with single coloured LED.

Other models of Sony like XB 10, 12 are minimal while XB 30,42 are vast, but this one is medium, not too big and not too small. You can carry it everywhere in your backpack. 

The build quality is awe-inspiring; you can feel the premier class of sony. Single-coloured LEDs are present all over the front edge of the speaker, which look classy. There is the small problem that I am facing during my use of tiny rubber stands present below the speaker. 

The stand or feet on which the speaker rests are not sufficient to hold the speaker stable. In fact, it looks useless. Even at medium volume, the speaker starts to move here and there.

Coming to the sound quality, it’s balanced. As XB is an Extra Bass series, Sony never disappoints you in terms of bass. This mode provides heavy bass and punchy sound. When you enable extra bass setting by using the Sony Music Centre app, you get impressive bass. But at the maximum sound, you can not hear the lyrics properly. Overall bass is very good at low and mid-level.

IPX7 rating is there to save your speaker from water. Also, you don’t have to worry about dust too.

A surprising feature of this speaker is the music chain. It means you can combine up to 100 speakers at the moment, which is going to hit your party.. I have tried up to 5 speakers in my bedroom and hall which sound more than enough. You feel like you have a home theatre in your room.

The battery backup is decent. Don’t expect more from this speaker. Sony mentioned the battery life was about 12 hours, but personally, I didn’t get 12 hours of battery back even at 50% volume. An average user lasts upto 8 hours. It took about 4 hours to get fully charged from zero to hundred. I recommend you try not to turn on the LED that consumes a lot of power.

Well, Xb32 is the most eligible Bluetooth speaker at ten thousand, having almost all features of an ideal speaker.

I am starting with the build quality, it’s just amazing. The design is pretty cool and that multi-coloured flashing lights, flashing strobe adds more temptation.

As Xb32 is IP67 rated, there is no need to worry about water, dust, rust, even shock also. This is the only speaker with all this protection.

Incoming and outgoing Voice quality is imposing. You can hear crystal clear and HD quality voice. You can also use Google and Siri by pressing the call button.

At the backside of the speaker, you get a USB output to charge another device or smartphone. Also, there are 3.5 mm jack to listen to the songs, charging port, reset button etc.

At the top, there are necessary buttons to volume up/down, to receive calls, to pair devices and to play/pause the music etc.

Sound effects are another great feature of this speaker. When you activate this feature, you can create some beast by tapping on the different sides of the speaker. Each side gives you different sounds. You can control the volume of these beats. Your taping force gives dramatic effects. When you use it, this is going to amaze you.

There are two options to connect the speaker with your mobile. One is NFC and Other is Bluetooth

The battery backup is another plus point for this speaker. With the volume of 60%, it stands up to 13 hours with lights off condition. Four hours are enough to charge this speaker fully.

Flashing strobe is worth it. You can change the colours and patterns from the number of patterns. These patterns can blink in a circle too.

So the conclusion is,

If you want a speaker for decent usage like to enjoy the music at home, to watch Youtube videos with great sound, listen to music in the bathroom, etc, then go with XB 10, XB 12. These are medium budget speakers. But if you are adventurous and frequently go trekking, or you love parties, you can prefer party specialist speakers like XB 31, XB 32 or XB 30, etc.
