Regardless, the SRS-XB13 will still make a good gift and a good buy if you're on a budget and need a small wireless speaker. It is also very easy to carry around. It is waterproof and dustproof so you can use it almost anywhere.


If you're not too worried about your budget, take a look at the best JBL Bluetooth speakers , although most of them are much more expensive than this one, they also sound much better.

Small enough to fit in your hand, the Sony SRS-XB13 only weighs about 253g. It's a tiny wireless speaker that's going to be super easy to take around and will

You can buy it in six colors: if you prefer something more subdued, you can choose black, taupe or light blue, and if you want something more whimsical, it is also available in turquoise, lemon yellow or coral pink. flowers. Whether you are buying for yourself or someone else, one of the color options is sure to be the right one.


Made almost entirely of plastic, the Sony SRS-XB13 feels solid and I can't imagine getting scratched. It should be able to take a few hits in your backpack and is also IP67 water and dust resistant, which means you can use it by the pool, in the park or on the beach without worrying about damaging it.

There are several speaker and music controls along the rubber strip on the back, including a power button and a Bluetooth button, as well as a pause/play button and volume controls. With a double or triple press of the play button, you can scroll forward and backward without taking your phone out.


You'll get up to 16 hours of music with the Sony SRS-XB13 on a single charge. It's not bad, it's enough for a day.

The USB-C port for charging is hidden behind a cover on the back. It will take about 4 hours and 30 minutes to fully charge the battery, which is a very long time, you will probably need to remember to plug it in at night, not before you go.


Sound and features

When it comes to sound quality, you can't expect very much from such a cheap speaker, but what the speaker's design does well is that it gives you the same sound no matter where you stand in relation to it - it radiates out into every corner.

When you turn the volume up to 100%, it's actually not that loud. The speaker is suitable for listening to small groups, but its power will not be enough to sound the party. I also noticed that the sound was a bit distorted at the highest levels, with audible hiss behind the track.


The Sony SRS-XB13 has a single 43mm driver, and despite being labeled "extra bass" it won't rock walls, let's just say. You get punch on bass-heavy songs and vocals are very clear, but that's a far cry from some of the very best Bose Bluetooth speakers you can buy, for example.


To make the sound more spacious, you can connect two of these speakers together for stereo sound. I only had one, so unfortunately I couldn't test this feature.


Another handy feature is that the Sony SRS-XB13 has a built-in microphone so you can take calls through it. I wouldn't expect too much from this, people on the other end of the line can have a hard time hearing you, especially if you're in a noisy area.

Impression

Summing up, we can say that the Sony SRS-XB13 is far from perfect. The sound isn't very powerful or particularly accurate, the microphone doesn't work very well when you use it as a speakerphone, and it takes a long time to charge.


But on the other hand, it's still a decent speaker considering how cheap it is. If you're not a music lover, you won't be too bothered by sound problems, and the great thing is that you can literally use it anywhere and everywhere. That's not to mention the battery life, which is enough for a whole day of listening to music. Compared to other speakers at a similar price, this is definitely a good option
