As the world evolves, so must we too. Bluetooth speakers are very handy tools, your smart phone might not be loud enough to play music for your group of friends, and you would most likely go for a Bluetooth speaker. Let’s review these two waterproof Bluetooth speakers and see which one best suits you.
SONY SRS-XB10 PORTABLE WIRELESS BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
The Sony SRS-XB10 is firm and portable with a relatively small weight of 11.8 ounces, so you can freely move about with it. Due to its water resistant IPX5 feature, you can listen to your tunes indoors or outdoors without worrying about it being damaged by rain or an accidental splash of water. You might want to take a shower while listening to your favorite tunes, the Sony SRS XB0 has got you covered, though its water resistant feature seems out of this world, it is not suited to withstand soapy water or sea water.
Get into the groove with EXTRA BASS, boost your low-end music with Sony’s trademark EXTRA BASS, regardless of the size; this speaker significantly boosts your bass. With a long lasting life of up to 16 hours, you can listen to your tunes all day long. Using the versatile silicone strap, you can fix the speaker to your backpack or you can use it as a stand for the small speaker to help focus the sound.
Connect wirelessly with any Bluetooth device easily with NFC One-touch, very fast and reliable. Although using one speaker doesn’t give you a stereo sound, you can easily connect two speakers to deliver the stereo sound. You can also wirelessly charge the Sony srs xb10 using the wireless charging kit, all you need to do is place it on its charging base.
