What can I expect from the audio quality on this speaker?
This SONY 20W portable Bluetooth speaker has a great compact design and packs a punch when it comes to bass heavy music. Twin 42mm stereo speakers, with a built-in passive bass radiators and EXTRA BASS technology, help recreate bass heavy notes with extreme accuracy.

How can I connect to this speaker?
The SONY 20W portable speaker provides multiple ways of connecting your devices. NFC technology helps to create an instant link between supported NFC devices and the speaker. You simply have to touch the device on the speaker and your music will begin streaming straight away. For devices that are not NFC capable, a Bluetooth connection can be established by searching for the speaker from a blue tooth capable device.
For devices that lack both NFC and Bluetooth, a 3.5mm mini jack socket is provided so you can connect directly to the speaker by means of a cable. This is a perfect solution for MP3 or CD players that require an external speaker to play audio.
Bluetooth smartphones that are paired to the speaker can make use of the call handling feature, which allows you receive phone calls through the Bluetooth speaker. This means you don’t have to disconnect your phone should someone ring you whilst you are listening to music.

Can I use this speaker outside?
With its stylish, compact design, the Sony 20W Bluetooth speaker is ideal for taking with you on the go. Water resistant features keep the speaker operational and protect it from rain. Wireless Bluetooth connections can be made from a range of up to 10 metres, so you can listen to your music and keep your smartphone hidden away from view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product but currently MUCH cheaper elsewhere I wanted a compact wireless speaker with a great quality sound and I'm not disappointed! Given its size, the sound is very punchy and good quality with no distortion at normal sound levels. When at Maplin buying something else, I mentioned that this product cost much less at Currys and they said they would price match - so I saved £17 taking the price down to the Argos price that was even better than Currys!! Great (unadvertised) service.... Also, I have EASILY paired it by Bluetooth to my Windows 10 laptop. This goes against the previous review a month ago. Also pair to Samsung laptop and a tablet. All very straightforward. I might get a second speaker to work as a pair with the first......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab and convenient I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He needed something small to carry around when he is doing DIY but also something he can take with him on business trips etc. For the size the sound is great. We have small children so didn't want to spend a fortune and I like the fact that he doesn't have to be too precious about it. Our kids have the cube version and we have always been impressed with the sound quality. I would buy this again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doen't work with Windows 10 This was difficult to get connected via Bluetooth, then once connected Windows 10 doesn't see it as a speaker. Maplin's helpdesk confirmed it didn't work with windows 10. There are no newer drivers on Sony's web site.
