Product Description

Product Description

At a glance

  • Lightweight and portable - listen to your music in surround sound while you're on the go.
  • Connect your smartphone with NFC One-touch listening, or using Bluetooth.
  • Take the party with you and your friends. The speaker has surround sound mode that lets you share your music.
  • With its mesh fabric and rubber belt the wireless speaker gives you splash proof performance, even when hands are wet.
  • Answer calls with a simple press of the hands free button on the speaker, so there's no need to touch your smartphone.

Let there be music wirelessly

Friends and music. Two things that go well together. And to get the party started wherever you like to hang out, put our ultra-portable wireless speaker in the mix. It's easy to connect your smartphone for NFC One-touch listening, or via Bluetooth. For smaller groups the speaker's directional mode is perfect - and if more people join the party, just tilt the speaker upwards to experience superb surround sound. It's splash proof, too, so it's ideal to use at the beach or poolside. And with up to 10 hours battery life, no matter where you go, your music can travel with you.

Freedom. For you and your music

When you leave the house, our ultra portable wireless speaker means your music doesn't need to be left behind. Perfect for outdoors, it's lightweight yet durable. And because it slips easily into a bag a day at the skatepark becomes a party with friends, the poolside a dance floor. No matter where you find yourself, your music is there with you.

Connect with the music

Sharing your music is super simple. Get connected in an instant by placing your smartphone against the NFC One-touch connection. Or if your smartphone has Bluetooth, you can pair it with the speaker in seconds. All you need to do to get the party started is start selecting your favourite songs.

A new angle on sharing music

Keep it personal, or share your sounds. The speaker has a 'G-Sensor' accelerometer inside, so that when you change the angle of the speaker it shifts from directional mode to deliver outstanding surround sound. And because of its unique hexagonal shape, you can move to party mode without missing a beat.

A few drops of water, easily handled

Let your music make a splash. The design of the speaker protects it against dripping water when tilted, so you can handle it even when your hands are wet. Being splashproof means there's no need to reach for the towel when you get out of the pool and want to turn up the volume.

Handily hands free

When you need to pause the party - to take those all-important calls to let your friends know where it's at - use the speaker and not your phone. You can also use the volume on your smartphone to shift it up a notch, so your speaker stays perfectly placed to share your chosen tunes. Leaving you to carry on having a great time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed portable speaker 28 Jan 2014
By James B. Spink HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The designers at Sony have got this little Bluetooth speaker just about right. It is truly portable as it will play for up to ten hours on a single charge – and I found this to be quite an accurate figure. It is small enough to be easily carried around and even has an eye for attaching a karabiner if required. It is splash-proof – not fully water-proof though! – so it can be used near water fairly safely. If connected to a Smartphone you can answer calls from it and use it as a speakerphone as it has a built-in microphone.

The Bluetooth connects easily by conventional methods - although I had no luck using NFC from a Samsung tablet. The first time the speaker is powered up it goes into Bluetooth pairing mode and after that you can press a button to connect additional devices. There is an aux-in via a 3.5mm jack socket for connecting any non-Bluetooth device that has a headphone socket, and a 3.5mm jack socket for audio out. These are accessed via a waterproof flap that also covers the power in socket. The speaker comes with a power adaptor for charging but the connection is not via a mini USB – this is the only thing I would change as this would have made charging from a laptop or in the car possible too.

You can press a button and the speaker will tell you its state of charge, it also has a few other phrases used at other times too! The same button will also change the language if you are not careful! If that happens keep pressing it until it says “English”. There are two audio modes which are changed via an internal gravity switch – in normal mode the speaker is more directional for small groups directly in front of it, and on its back the sound is more diffuse (surround sound mode) for larger groups in a wider area.

3.0 out of 5 stars S'ok 4 Feb 2014
By DC
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The speaker is quite compact, feels robust and the sound quality is OK.
I find the volume a bit lacking but I don't doubt it is as specified. The sound is quite clear and good. Perhaps too bright in "surround sound" mode and a but dull in "normal" mode. Sometime the bass can be a bit rough at higher volume.
Battery life is good.

Operationally, it is easy to set up and can handle both bluetooth and attach by standard audio cable (not supplied). The volume control, feels a bit sluggish.

Where it irritates me is the volume of the "Hello, I am here" and the "Bye" sounds. I also don't understand why lady announcing bluetooth connection needs to shout quite so loudly.

I picked this up in a lightning deal and so a bit cheaper than the normal (or normal Amazon) price. For the price I paid, I'll happily give it 4 stars. Would I recommend it at the normal price? Not so sure.

Given most people will not pay the lightning deal price, I'll award 3 stars. It's OK and there probably are other options you should consider.

By Mrenshaw TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Comes well presented in a plain card box with a glossy Sony sleeve. Inside is the actual speaker, charger and lots of paper instructions (that were not needed). The speaker is an odd shape, like a glasses case that has been expanded from the inside, although not heavy, it's not something you'd really want to hand carry around - it does have a clip on it for attaching to bags and so on. Surprisingly there was no charge at all in the speaker, but after a quick 30 minutes it had 70% charge. There is a steel switch on the side to turn on and several buttons - volume up and down, telephone, pairing and battery. Hidden away in a waterproof flap is audio in and out and power. A charge and connection LED round off the compliment of features.

What I didn't expect was the voice - pressing the pairing button announces the fact, and pressing battery tells you "about 70% remaining" in a female voice. It's actually quite useful and made pairing a doddle. It's a nice touch that provides a good user experience.

In use, it's pretty decent. I used via Bluetooth with an iPhone 5, and the quality was okay - generally good but occasional lag and break up and the volume is okay in a house, but if used on a beach or at a party I suspect it won't be able to output at loud enough volume to be heard. One useful feature is that if used with a phone, you can answer calls via the speaker by hitting the button on the side of it. This could be good if the phone is hidden away in a bag and it's also convenient as you don't have to go looking for the phone.

It's supposed to be splash proof, and while I didn't test it, there doesn't seem to any reason to doubt that - the waterproof flap and the rubberised case seems to be quite resistant to water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little piece of kit 26 Mar 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I was going to cancel this order thinking 'I really don't need this gadget at al'l - but I am so pleased I didn't. This is an amazing piece of kit. It's the size of a sunglasses case (these tend to be bigger than a regular set of specs) and while it does not pack a bombastic Bose sound quality - you really cannot complain for the size and, as someone who likes big bass, this baby packs quite a good punch.
I pair it with my iphone 5s and stream music and video sound through it. I can leave the speaker in the conservatory and just about move the phone to the kitchen or dining room (so one wall away) and the connection remains. Any further and the sound is disrupted. This is excellent travel size too - perhaps a little heavy to take abroad - but each to their own. It doesn't come with a case sadly, but the speaker itself is really very robust. I am very happy with this and would highly recommend it for anyone who travels domestically or who wants music and sound to travel effortlessly through the house with them without buying additional sound systems.
