Sony Splash-Proof Wireless Portable Speaker Review

I am a member of the Sony Club and received product samples.

Last month I shared with you about my love for music!  Since that posting, my husband and I have accepted the position of Praise & Worship Leaders at our church.  It wasn’t really a surprise for us since we knew things were changing at church, but surprised or not, we feel we are where we are supposed to be and couldn’t be more excited for this journey.

As I mentioned in my review of the Sony Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, music is my safety netIt’s my happy place. Most days I rely on music to simply get me through.  As a busy mom of three who works from a home office, my responsibilities as parent and business owner overlap and I don’t have the luxury of being able to turn one or the other off.  I’m constantly trying to juggle the two and then add on the responsibilities of being a wife and there are moments throughout the day where I just need to decompress and music helps me.

The Sony Splash-Proof Wireless Portable Speaker is much smaller than the Sony Bluetooth Wireless Speaker so it is much easier to carry around the house and take outside.  We don’t have neighbors behind us because we live on a cul-de-sac and our property backs up the woods.  I often go outside and just take in the sights, the sounds, the smells.  I’ve started taking my smaller portable speaker outside with me to decompress surrounded by nature.

This speaker comes in five colors: black, blue, pink, red, and white.  Like its larger counterpart it is also equipped with bluetooth technology which makes it easy to use with compatible smartphones, tablets, and laptops.  If your device is equipped with NFC (near field communication) technology, you can use the One-touch Connection feature to connect effortlessly to the speaker. But even if your device does not have NFC technology, pairing the device to the speaker is super simple.  Simply by pressing and holding the PAIRING button on the bottom of the speaker with the Bluetooth option open on your device, you will be connected and ready to go in less than a minute.

The sound output from this little speaker is impressive.  The speaker can be used for more directional sound like you see in the photo above or can be used for surround sound by leaning it back on its base as you can see below.

The battery life is quite exceptional, I think.  I don’t entertain too terribly much but when I do, I like to have music in the background. When in use using the Bluetooth connection a full charge should last you about 10 hours. I don’t know about your parties, but my parties don’t last nearly that long.  With the built-in rechargeable battery you won’t have to worry about cords and electrical outlets.

The sleek and fun design of the speaker makes it suitable for any space.  With the five color options mentioned earlier, you should be able to find a color that fits into your current decor.

It works like it claims to work, it is easy to use and it’s splash-proof.  Party by the pool, anyone? With the metal accessory on the side you could also take it on bike rides or anywhere else your little heart desires.

Are you a music lover? Do you think you would get much use of this speaker at your house?

    I have a bluetooth speaker I use all the time. I couldn’t live without music. I play it when I clean, quietly in the background when I work, when I cook, drive, etc. I love how this looks like a glasses case, so small making it ideal for anywhere you are going in the home.

  2. 2

    Congratulations on being the praise & worship leaders! This looks like a really cool speaker! :)

  3. 3

    I really like the look of it, the fact that it is portable and still can produce great sound. 10 hours of battery life is also quite impressive too!

  4. 4

    This is awesome, I need one. We have a huge block rocker that is to big to take everywhere.

  5. 5

    I love how small and convenient it is!

  6. 6

    What a great speaker. My son wants a wireless one.

  7. 7

    I’m loving that. It doesn’t even look like a speaker

  8. 8

    Our family listens to music all of the time. These would be perfect for vacation or when we head to the pool.

  9. 9

    That’s awesome! I love to go out on my deck when my kids are at school because it is so peaceful. A wireless speaker like this would go great with my alone time :)

  10. 10

    I would use it, does it work with android phones??

  11. 11

    Oh I really like the size of it – nice and tiny and easy to take along wherever you go. I’ll watch for it to go on sale somewhere or wait from some gift cards because over $100 right now is just a little over my budget.

  12. 12

    This looks so well made.

  13. 13

    My husband is always listening to music on his iphone. He so needs one of these to carry with him around the house.

  14. 14

    I would love to get this speaker for my husband for Christmas!

  15. 15

    I like it! I like the little metal clip attachment too so you can hang it on something.

  16. 16

    That looks awesome!! I am gonna have to add this to my Wish List!

  17. 17

    I would use it all the time. I love the color!

  18. 18

    That looks nice & portable . I need a smaller bluetooth speaker.

  19. 19

    That would be awesome for my in-laws! We go there a lot in the summer to swim {we don’t have our own pool} so this would make it even more fun.

  20. 20

    Love that it is splash proof, perfect if you are doing dishes or outside by the pool.

  21. 21

    I have a portable speaker for my phone and love it! It makes the sound quality so much better.

  22. 22

    Wow that is awesome. I love that it’s Splash proof and I love that color.

  23. 23

    We love and listen to music all the time. I really love that it’s splash proof too.

  24. 24

    I think I would listen to more music at home if I had a speaker like this.

  25. 25

    Music is hugely important to me, too. I love to have it on all the time. I can not stand riding in a silent car. This would be the perfect speaker for me, because I love to play music while washing the dishes. Congrats on the new position!

  26. 26

    I would love this! We’re always listening to music outside in the yard where there’s so much moisture to worry about. Kids splashing, drinks spilling, morning dew on the grass, etc. It would be nice to not have to worry about the speaker outside.

  27. 27

    I’m a HUGE music lover, so I’d love something like this.

  28. 28

    I LOVE listening to music, especially when I’m cleaning so the fact that it’s portable is a plus.

  29. 29

    Considering our lifestyle, waterproof is pretty much what we need.

  30. 30

    Listening to music while showering, getting ready, working and relaxing outdoors is an absolute MUST for me. Just the fact that this speaker has great sound quality, while also being waterproof, has me sold!

  31. 31

    I love it! We (husband and I) are huge music lovers, too. It’s very important to us. I think this speaker would make a great gift for my husband. Congrats on becoming praise and worship leaders!

  32. 32

    You got blue! Lucky! I was just using mine this morning on the patio as I was painting!

  33. 33

    I think I’d set that up while I was cleaning. I work quicker and more efficiently when there’s music at cleaning time!

  34. 34

    My husband uses a speaker a lot, and usually in the washroom while he showers. This would be perfect for him.

  35. 35

    This would be great to bring outdoors when the kids are tired of playing outside. Putting on their Pandora station might convince them to play a little longer.

  36. 36

    I have seen these before, and the sound on them is incredible considering how small they are.
