The Sony SRS-XB100 has just joined the lineup of small wireless speakers that will perform well outdoors. The device was previously available in some parts of the world, but it has only now officially entered the European market. Despite the miniature dimensions, the speaker has a long battery life and very good sound quality (based on foreign product reviews).
A very successful model of a wireless soundbar from Sony – the SRS-XB100 – has just arrived in Poland. The device, thanks to its modest dimensions, will become an ideal travel companion, and at the same time it will ensure a long working time.
Sony SRS-XV800 – A great speaker with LDAC codec support that you can easily bring to any party
This compact speaker will spread its wings both at home (for example, while performing daily duties, where we usually listen to music in the background) and outdoors – it looks like it was built to be taken outside. Of course, we should not expect the highest quality sound or expressive bass from it. However, despite its size, it can be quite sufficient in these cases. In the package we get a strap, thanks to which we can hang the speaker almost anywhere. Both items are made from recycled materials. A noteworthy feature is the ability to connect two speakers together in stereo mode. This will provide a much better experience, but will also significantly increase the price. The price of one speaker is 269 PLN, although we can buy it much cheaper, for example on Amazon.

Sony SRS-XV900 – the manufacturer’s loudest and most powerful party speaker yet. Maybe the most expensive too
The equipment provides protection against dust and temporary immersion, which is confirmed by the IP67 standard. The headset itself isn’t the lightest (274g), although that shouldn’t be a huge drawback. We will be able to pair other devices using the Bluetooth 5.3 module, while the supported audio codecs are SBC and AAC. The battery should last for up to 16 hours of audio playback, with volume set to 36/100. The big plus is the ability to take calls thanks to the built-in microphone and system that allows you to eliminate echoes. There is an onboard digital audio distribution processor, which is designed to aid in the emission of sound. We will have up to four color versions to choose from, and we will make purchases in most Polish electronics stores.
