Sony has a reputation for giving users high-output speakers that don’t sacrifice volume for sound quality. If you are in the market for the best Bluetooth speakers that Sony has to offer, we have compiled a variety of speakers that are sure to impress. Whether you need something portable and durable for a trip to the beach or you want some rich surround sound for your outdoor projector setup, Sony speakers have something that will meet your needs.
Sony SRS-XB13 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker
The Sony SRS-XB13 wireless Bluetooth speaker is here to prove that good things come in small packages. At roughly 4 inches tall, it is one of the smallest Sony speakers. Don’t be fooled by its small size, though. The speaker sports an EXTRA BASS™ feature and a sound diffusion processor that allows the speaker to disperse your audio over a wider area. You can even pair a second speaker for a larger stereo setup.
The 46mm driver produces a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. It has some respectable bass, but the SRS-XB13’s primary focus is being portable and sturdy.
The SRS-XB13 boasts an IP67 rating, meaning you don’t have to worry about water or dust ruining your device. A full charge from the USB Type-C port will give you up to 16 hours of battery life. The Sony speaker also offers convenient hands-free calling with its built-in microphone.
You can find the SRS-XB13 for $49.99
The XE200 is the XB13’s bigger, stronger older sibling. Like the XB13, the XE200 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that has an IP67 water and dustproof design (with additional shockproof capabilities not found in the XB13). It also features USB-C quick charging with a robust 24-hour battery life.
The X-series (for the XE200 and the slightly larger XE300) designs are made for superior sound and loud output. While a lot of wireless speakers have a hard time dispersing sound, the XE300 uses a Line-Shape Diffuser for a clearer and fuller output. The Line-Shape Diffuser really shines by distributing the front-facing sound consistently in every direction.
The XE200 can produce a more extended low-bass than the XB13 and is more customizable thanks to the graphic EQ featured in its companion app, so you can tweak its sound however you want. Compatibility with the Fiestable app offers other fun effects and additional customization.
You can find the XE200 for $129.99
SRS-XG500 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker
For those wanting a more premium Bluetooth device with lots of bells and whistles, the Sony SRS-XG500 has a wide array of features. Sony’s X-Balanced speakers deliver high levels of sound, bass that packs a punch, and easy Bluetooth connectivity without sacrificing the speaker’s clarity.
At just over 12 pounds, the XG500’s lightweight build and carry handle make it easy to transport. The Sony speaker holds up to 30 hours of battery life and a 10 minute charge can power the XG500 for 3 hours. You can also charge your mobile device by plugging it into one of the speaker’s 2 USB ports. The outer mesh on the XG500 makes it resistant to water as well as dustproof.
The speaker functionality is enhanced with the Fiestable and the Sony Music Center mobile apps. These apps allow you to pair up with other XG500s, create custom sound profiles, adjust the speaker’s LED lights, and much more. If you want to jam, you can plug a microphone or an instrument into the speaker’s auxiliary input.

LSPX-S3 Glass Sound Speaker
If you’re looking for a way to revamp the look of your living space while also adding crisp, 360º audio, look no further than the Sony LSPX-S3 Glass Sound speaker. The LSPX-S3 is both a portable Bluetooth speaker and a table lamp that resembles a candle. The LED light paired with clear sound can create ambiance in any space. The design may not be for everyone but if you feel your living space is in need of a minimalist statement piece, this may be a good option for you.
The glass tube on the device isn’t only meant to help create a candlestick aesthetic. Sony also claims that there are three actuators in the speaker that attach to the end of the glass. These actuators then vibrate the entire glass tweeter “to spread sound in every direction.”
The LSPX-S3 is a little more than 11 inches tall and weighs in at around 2.5 pounds. This additional weight in the base helps keep the device from unintentionally falling over.

Sony HT-S400 2.1ch Soundbar
If your TV/entertainment audio lacks depth and clarity, think about the Sony HT-S400 Soundbar and wireless subwoofer. This soundbar features 2.1ch front surround sound with X-Balanced speakers to produce crisp dialogue while the wireless subwoofer delivers more depth on the low end. Connect any Bluetooth-compatible device to stream music.
This soundbar comes equipped with S-Force PRO Front Surround and Dolby Digital. This helps create cinematic-style surround sound without needing a full surround sound setup.
Also, the kit is easily adjusted by a small remote control and an OLED information display window on the soundbar. Other features include the utilization of Bluetooth A2DP, HDMI ARC as well as optical cable support. If you already have a Sony BRAVIA TV, you can connect the soundbar and subwoofer through Bluetooth for easy control and minimal cable clutter.
