The Sony SRS-XB13 is a neat and compact speaker with a durable, multiway strap for hanging anywhere. Attach to your backpack, parasol, or wrist and enjoy secure sound wherever you travel. Rounded edges make it easy to carry in a bag without it scratching the other stuff.

Waterproof and dustproof for durability

Sound diffusion for a spacious sound
With its Sound Diffusion Processor and top-mounted speaker, the SRS-XB13 produces a spacious, radial sound for everyone to hear.

Small in size, the SRS-XB13 still kicks hard. The full-range 46mm driver is joined by an ABR (Auxiliary Bass Radiator) for a full-range sound that’s leagues ahead of your smartphone or tablet.

Double up for stereo
By connecting two SRS-XB13 speakers via Bluetooth, you can choose Stereo mode for a more immersive sound. With two speakers, you not only get higher volume but also stereo sound for life-like staging.

Bluetooth connection with Fast Pair technology
Featuring Google’s Fast Pair technology, pairing the speaker with your Android smartphone or tablet is faster than ever. Simply turn on the speaker and your nearby smartphone will prompt you to connect – no pin or complex pairing required.

Up to 16 hours playback and USB-C charging
Thanks to a built-in rechargeable battery you can take the Sony wherever you fancy. A 16-hour battery life makes it perfect for a weekend long festival or a couple of sunny afternoons in the garden. With a USB Type-C charging port, the SRS-XB13 charges from all the latest gadgets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive bass This compact speaker packs a punch! Looks solid, bass from such a small unit is impressive, easy to set up and easy to keep close by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent outdoor speaker [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this in June 2021 and it has proven an excellent quality speaker for playing music via Bluetooth in the garden. For such a small speaker, this packs quite a punch. It is obviously not going to have the bass power of a larger product, but it does deliver clear, quality sound that does not sound tinny/underpowered. It is not designed for a high energy party sound, but it certainly does the job for a smaller gathering/dinner party or if camping, where you want good quality background music that can be turned up but will not upset the neighbours. It is easy to set-up by pressing a button and then pairing with your phone. Re-charging is via USB-c which allegedly provides 16 hours of battery life - although I have not timed it yet. It's also apparently waterproof in case of any accidents - e.g. by river/garden pond/swimming pool. The speaker has a carry strap that can be used to hang it from a hook/other garden feature such as a pergola. It is small and solid, with a carry bag, making it ideal for packing for trips. Apparently, if you buy 2, you can pair them for stereo sound as well! All in all, I am very happy with this product and would recommend it as excellent value for money if you are looking for a good quality, portable, Bluetooth speaker for personal use. It's not for you if you are planning a mobile disco!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very nice speaker [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using this speaker for a few weeks and I am very impressed. The build quality is excellent from the soft touch rubberised texture, a waight that comfortable and satisfying, the large buttons and a nice strap. This is great upgrade to my XB-01 which I have been using previously it isn't much louder but the bass is more defined. The handsfree calling is fantastic with the XB-01 you would need to be aligned with the mic and quite close but with this XB-13 it can be placed in the centre of a table and easily have multiple people speaking through it from all angles picking up everything. The soud is clear and for its size it handles eveything I played on it from hip hop, house and drum 'n' bass.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, small speaker. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I seen this speaker I wasn’t really expecting much due to my experience with small speakers in the past. Now let me clarify this isn’t going to make you feel the bass in your chest but I was surprised how good it sounded for it’s size. It connected easily to my iPhone and sounded reasonable in a living room. The one thing I was very impressed by was the lack of distortion at full volume and the bass sounded better at this level. I took it to my sons wedding recently as he wanted to play his music before and after the ceremony. This was a large roomin a country house, 70feet long, 25 feet wide and very high ceiling at easily 20 feet high. While it didn’t fill the room with sound it was good enough to play music at a decent volume to be heard over conversation. I had a few enquiries as to what it was and a friend is going to buy one for his young daughter to use in her room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable and still powerful! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Portable, compact, sleek yet powerful …. An accurate description of the SRS-XB13 Wireless speaker. Firstly, the box is well packaged, sturdy, offering ample protection with minimal packaging and I especially loved how there was no unnecessary plastic inside the box! Great move by Sony as all packaging is recyclable. The speaker is smooth to the touch, with a sturdy strap securely connected to the device to support either holding the speaker in hand which is especially useful when travelling or safely attaching to a secure object (think hanging from a shelf, or the inside of a tent). I found the strap very beneficial as this is a portable device, it allows for confidence in its use knowing that it will not be damaged by accidentally falling or being knocked over. The bottom of the speaker is rubberised, making it sturdy to freely stand. There are easy to read control buttons on the speaker which include power, Bluetooth and volume with the power & Bluetooth having their own lights to confirm they are active / in use – great simple visual aid. The Bluetooth connects easily to your phone, I had no issues with the ease of this and the device was very responsive. When I changed soundtracks there was no delay from the speaker, it was prompt, clear and free from interruption. The sound quality is clear, the bass is not the deepest and it is not the loudest speaker either however I fully appreciate that for the size and portability of this speaker both the volume and the bass are more than impressive and necessary. Realistically, I see the purpose of the speaker being for personal use or for intimate gatherings where the sound quality would be more than adequate, if you required more power, I believe you naturally would be looking at an entirely different style of speaker. The speaker is waterproof, I found this handy when trialling the device. I had used whilst it is having a couple of drinks outside in the garden while the kids splashed in their pool, obviously a few splashes headed my way and I completely forgot all about the speaker. When clearing away at the end of the evening, the speaking had been splashed, it had water around it too, yet it was playing away as it had done all evening – the fun had continued without panic or concern! So, to me, it’s a family friendly device as well. You can take calls through this speaker; they were crystal clear and again responsive with a great call quality. Your phone shows you the battery level of the speaker, so you do not need to guess the power left. The battery level for me was great, I had it playing away from afternoon to evening and had no issues at all. To recharge it is a simple case of USB charging, so again simple and straightforward. To summarise and conclude, the device is portable, sturdy and produces impressive sound quality for its size. It is user friendly with its power indicator and waterproof feature. Would I recommend? Yes, if you want ease of use, if you want to pick up your speaker and take the great quality sound with you. If you want a powerful bass to blast out at a party then look for a different product, but this will be great at a beach, in your garden or off camping etc, just think of this as your own private intimate speaker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiny Compact Speaker with Large Sound [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This speaker is a very small and relatively light but solid feeling, finished in black. Not with the usual Sony design flair. It weighs just 270g and measures 9.5cm high and 7.5cm in diameter. It came attached to a nice strap emphasising it’s go anywhere portability. It is IP67 waterproof and also dust proof. The initial charge up time took just 2 hours with the supplied but short 30cm USB-C cable. It took just 2-3 seconds to link up by Bluetooth to my iPhone. (Blue light stays on). In fact connection and disconnection to my phone was very quick and seamless. This small speaker gives a typical warm Sony sound with excellent mids for vocals. I found I had to turn the volume up to maximum to give a fairly room filling sound. This will affect battery life which Sony quote as up to 16 hours. I found the treble quite harsh and thin which may make it tiring to listen to for long periods. The base was not that impressive but as expected for such a small speaker. The bass effect can be altered by careful placement of the speaker. You get more base by placing it in the corner of a shelf or a windows sill for example. The sound would definitely be more impressive if it was paired with another XB13 and Sony makes this easy to do. Not sure if it can be purchased as a 2 speaker kit. As they are wireless you can then place the speakers where you want in the room to improve the sound. The Bluetooth range is excellent. I could even walk out the front door of my house with my phone and my wife said that it was still playing the music upstairs without dropping out. Telephone call quality is ok. Perfectly audible but had a typical nasal quality with a bit of crackle. Nice to have but the XB13 is far better suited as a speaker for music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely surprised how good AND useful this is… [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I opened the box, first thought was that something that small couldn’t be great sound quality-wise. I also wondered - given we have radios and smart speakers in the house - whether it would have much use other than for the odd picnic. It IS small - smaller than a soup can, but sound could not be faulted - really good bass, but equally good for listening to news etc on the radio. Very easy to set up….much quicker than many other bluetooth items I have had. Handle is really useful and a neat design - and the rubber base means the speaker stays firmly on a table or desk and doesn’t slide at all. Found myself using the speaker paired to my phone in all sorts of applications…great in the bathroom, very good when gardening…may even get to use it on the beach when the weather improves! All in all excellent performance, easy to use, great value and something we would not want to be without.
