I wanted a small portable speaker to toss into a travel bag. The Sony SRS-XB12 got me there, but not until after a long and exhausting journey. YouTube is a good place to audition speakers. Use headphones and keep in mind the sad state of some of the home microphones being used. A speaker this small has obvious limitations. I am amazed at the clarity of vocals and instruments, as well as the natural tones of the bass.
Keep in mind that bass tones are made by plucking the strings of a bass guitar. Even synthesized bass sounds better when it comes through clearly instead of muffled. Sony's previous model of this speaker, the XB10 has too much of that nasty, muddy sound.
And here's another important note. Even the young hipsters of today's generation should appreciate quality when they listen to recorded noise that one might hesitate to call “music.” If a rapper is ranting about killing police or which drugs are the coolest, it probably would help his fans if they could clearly hear the lyrics. (Or maybe not).
Either way, the Sony engineers nailed it on this little gem of a speaker. Whether you prefer the mellow joyfulness of Dean Martin's “Magic Is the Moonlight” or rocking to the Ventures’ 1962 knockout rendition of Sandy Nelson's “Let There Be Drums,” this speaker will handle it superbly. Even some of the crazy modern stuff that doesn’t make sense actually sounds lifelike and fun on this speaker!
And, get this. To pair a device with Bluetooth, all you have to do is turn it on and press the power button for 3 seconds. A blue will blink and immediately pair with your device. You even get a choice of several nifty colors.
I got the same orange colour, or so I thought when I ordered them. The Orange is a bit more burnt with the XB12, making it a bit of a disappointment out of the box for me. I enjoyed the vibrant colour of its predecessor more.
The XB10 had an attached rubber stand that you could rest the speaker on, which was great. The XB12 doesn't and when placed with the speaker facing up, as illustrated in the promo images, the sound quality fails to live up to a unit resting on a stand. Audio is directional, so having the speaker aimed at the ceiling doesn't really make sense and the bass is muffled when standing as well. Resting on its side is a better sounding unit, but it looks off with its big strap and no stand. Scratching my head as to why they went this way.
The strap that it comes with, instead of the threaded stand on the XB10, is sturdy. In terms of ruggedness, this is an upgrade. It can be strapped around something now, which the XB10 can't. I can see it being far more of a "on the belt/bag" speaker now.
We took a speaker tobogganing in about -15°c and it lasted the whole 2+ hours in the cold, after having been used for a bit before that. That's pretty decent battery life and once it warmed back up at home it didn't read as needing a charge anymore. Most things crap out pretty quick in the cold here.
We've got really dry snow where we are, the Yukon, so it got through the speaker grill and completely muffled/stopped the sound a couple of times, but was easy enough to bang and blow out. Not sure what it would be like with wet snow.
The pairing of the speakers has proved to have a bit of dropout/stuttering. This was a big reason why I got the new speakers and I'm a bit disappointed at this point.
I've paired the speakers to just my phone and had issues, as well as paired them to a Google home mini. When it's just a single speaker, it's good, but the L/R pairing has been hit and miss in its consistency of playing audio properly.
Compared to the XB10 as a Bluetooth speaker to use around the indoors, it's not as good.
In terms of being used outside and attached to things on the go, it's pretty great.
I wished that I hadn't sold my XB10 before these arrived, as I'd still use it over the XB12s in most applications. Great little speaker, just wish they'd managed to improve the older model without losing aspects that made the old one great.
