Compact and lightweight, the Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker is the perfect way to listen to your favorite tunes wherever you go.
Sony’s Bluetooth speakers tend to be known for being effective but big and bulky. If you’re after something more portable that you can bring along to the beach or a picnic with ease, the Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker will provide you with all the benefits of a Sony speaker in a more travel-friendly package.

And it’s an excellent speaker for calls, both personal and professional, thanks to its hands-free calling and echo-cancelling microphone, which allows two people to speak at the same time without issue.
It’s also a great speaker for listening to music, boasting surprisingly deep bass for its small size, and you have nothing to fear if you want to use it at the beach or poolside; it’s IP67 rated as both dustproof and waterproof, and it even has a built-in strap for greater portability. To round it all off, the Sony SRS-XB100 Portable Speaker can even pair with a second speaker for a more stereo-like experience and last up to 16 hours on a single charge.
