[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The charge on this last a decent time. It doesn’t take long to charge it. It’s small and easy to transport. I can easily throw it in my purse. We took it to the beach with us and it lasted all day. My daughter got it wet and it held up. It’s a decent speaker!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Bluetooth speaker is absolutely out of this world! My husband and I were cleaning the garage out last weekend and we wanted to listen to music. Our phone wasn't loud enough so I said hold on and brought the speaker out. The connection via bluetooth was extremely simple. The cylinder shape makes it easy to handle and store. It has a really good battery life as well. Perfect gift for anyone that loves music!

Sony NEVER disappoints!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Man..this speaker don't play. This easily puts down beats speakers. From instrumentals to 60s soul. This speakers can deliver in bass and treble amazingly well. No distortion at 90% volume. Pairing is super easy and fast. Charge last for a good minute ( long time). I love it !

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It was so easy to set up and configure with my Phone and TV! The sound you get from the XB23 is just amazing! You essentially get all the bass and audio from the wireless speaker. When I have parties I bring it out and everyone is just impressed on how loud it gets with this speaker. Love it!

Great Sound - Ultra Portable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a fantastic little speaker! It’s portable and easy to carry. It sounds fantastic and puts out a nice balanced sound with plenty of bass. It is waterproof and dustproof too. It was easy to connect to my phone. We used it outside last weekend to hang Christmas lights and it put out plenty of volume to hear across the yard. It has a button for “party mode” which is not described in the manual as to how that works. I had to go online to find out – basically you can link up multiple speakers that support party mode so they all play the same music – cool. I can’t wait to take this to the pool next summer and not worry about it getting splashed.

love it!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This speaker is amazing for such a tiny thing. It can be carried anywhere, is waterproof, has a microphone for phone calls, and can fit in a purse/backpack. I love using it for my computer as I have a very small area in my room. It fits perfectly on my desk and it sounds like a whole stereo system. Even at its loudest the sound is clear and not crackly. This is perfect outside as well. The sound doesn't get lost (because the speaker is small) and can be heard clearly.

Hi Richard, thanks for your inquiry. The XB23 only supports Bluetooth connections. Alternatively, you can try the XB43, or XB12 which have 3.5mm (headphone jack) input. Hope this helps. Regards, Erin
