Sony has a reputation for providing users with high-output speakers that don’t sacrifice volume for sound quality. If you’re looking for the best Bluetooth speakers Sony has to offer, we’ve rounded up a variety of speakers that are sure to impress. Whether you need something portable and durable for a trip to the beach, or want rich surround sound for your outdoor projector setup, Sony speakers have something to suit your needs.
Sony SRS-XB13 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Sony’s SRS-XB13 wireless Bluetooth speaker is here to prove that good things come in small packages. At around 4 inches tall, it’s one of the smallest Sony speakers. However, don’t let its small size fool you. The speaker features an EXTRA BASS™ feature and a sound diffusion processor that allows the speaker to spread your audio over a larger area. You can even pair a second speaker for a larger stereo setup.
That 46mm driver generates a frequency range from 20Hz to 20kHz. It has respectable bass, but the main focus of the SRS-XB13 is to be portable and robust.
The SRS-XB13 has an IP67 rating, so you don’t have to worry about water or dust damaging your device. A full charge via the USB Type-C port gives you up to 16 hours of battery life. The Sony speaker also offers convenient hands-free calling with its built-in microphone.

The XE200 is the bigger, more powerful older brother of the XB13. Like the XB13, the XE200 is a portable Bluetooth speaker with an IP67 waterproof and dustproof design (with added shockproof features not found on the XB13). It also features USB-C fast charging with a robust 24-hour battery life.
The X-Series designs (for the XE200 and the slightly larger XE300) are designed for superior sound and loud output. While many wireless speakers have a hard time diffusing sound, the XE300 uses a linear diffuser for clearer and fuller output. The line-shape diffuser really shines through Distribution of forward sound evenly in all directions.
Capable of producing a more extended low end than the XB13, the XE200 is more customizable thanks to the graphic EQ included in its companion app, allowing you to tweak its sound to your liking. Compatibility with the Fiestable app offers more fun effects and additional customization options.

You can also charge your mobile phone device by connecting it to one of the 2 USB ports on the speaker. The XG500’s outer mesh makes it waterproof and dustproof.
Speaker functionality is enhanced with the Fiestable and Sony Music Center mobile apps.

LSPX-S3 glass sound speaker
If you’re looking for a way to upgrade the look of your living space while adding crisp 360º sound, look no further than the Sony LSPX-S3 Glass Sound Speaker. The LSPX-S3 is both a portable Bluetooth speaker and a table lamp that resembles a candle. The LED light paired with clear sound can create ambience in any room. The design might not be for everyone, but if you think your living space needs a minimalist statement piece, this might be a good option for you.
The glass tube on the device isn’t just meant to help create a candlestick aesthetic. Sony also claims that there are three actuators inside the speaker, attached to the end of the glass. These actuators then vibrate the entire glass tweeter “to disperse the sound in all directions”.
The LSPX-S3 is just over 11 inches tall and weighs around 2.5 pounds. This extra weight in the base prevents the device from accidentally falling over.
