Sony XB501G Reviews

Nah dont buy so disappointing

By D Oz

Bought over the Christmas 2019. When leaving in uncharged, even the power is off, still saying battery low. And the Usb-C charging doesnot work when the battery is empty, has to use the power adaptor. So inconvenient. Bass is ok. Sound is ok. Its loud. Just not happy with the battery and the charging issues.

Reliable and Fun

I haven’t had it for more than a month but so far I had a great experience with it. Having the Google assistant embedded makes the functionality even better and the sound quality is excellent too....

not Charging purchased less than 6months ago!!!

I hate Sony I bought this speaker less than 6 months ago and it’s not charging I’m guessing it’s the charger can’t find it anywhere not even the Sony website have to buy a third party charger. Will never buy a Sony blutooth speaker again!!!

I love everything about it I had the Harmon Kardon onyx 4 and sold it to buy this speaker I like the google assistant and how you can control Spotify without using the phone all in all good speaker and it’s gets a lot of compliments for its sound quality

No high quality bluetooth support

I was excited about this speaker as it's versatile - can be used in the home with the rest of your google cast speakers or taken on road trips using bluetooth. Every sony product I've purchased lately supports LDAC, so I didn't even check if this speaker supported it. IT DOES NOT. The best bluetooth codec is AAC, which isn't great. There is absolutely a noticeable difference in sound quality between casting to this speaker and using bluetooth. Also, it would have been nice to include an aux jack. I think the speaker sounds pretty good, but the lack of quality bluetooth codec is noticeable and I may be returning it. It would be a much more versatile speaker if it had an aux input and LDAC.
