This Sony speaker definitely rises above its competition for its superior sound quality. Many portable speakers lack a good bass, but that is not the case with this speaker. It produces a surprisingly powerful bass without drowning out the crisp treble sound.

The battery lasts a long time so it’s great to use even when there is no power source nearby. It is also very convenient that you can use it to charge your mobile device.
There aren’t many bad things to say about this product. Users are largely satisfied with this purchase.
Some have complained that while it produces a great bass, when it plays songs with a heavy bass it starts to distort. Some have solved this problem by downloading an equalizer app on their mobile device to reduce the bass when needed.
