    After trying the XB33, I gotta admit that I was quite surprised. I was used to see mediocre speakers coming from Sony but this one felt different. To begin with, sound was pretty enjoyable but it has its flaws. Highs were quite bad and didn't have so much detail, mids were quite muddy and there was so much bass. The thing is that after using the EQ, I managed to improve the sound of the speaker but it's not the best speaker I heard anyhow. It was enjoyable but not as I would like. Something I liked a lot was that the sound is stereo and that it uses a better audio codec which provided a cleaner sound overall. In terms of the design, I didn't liked it. I found it too simple and its lights didn't help at all. I prefer a design like the XB23 or the Flip 6 (which has a pretty beautiful design tbh). Battery life was great, achieving good numbers after my testing. Price in the other hand was not that great because I found a contender which basically delivers everything I was looking for and it's the Flip 6. It's not only much cheaper but it is also much more comparable to this speaker than the Charge 5. I found the Flip's sound to be richer, with more detail and punch than the Sony's. Because of the Flip 6 existence, I ended up switching to JBL's instead. Not a bad speaker but I found a better choice out there. (Also Anker Motion+ is a good option too).

    Pros

      Cons

      • Muddy sound, treble lacks definition
      • Bass heavy
      • Materials doesn't seem to last much
