FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Sony SRSXB2/BLK Portable Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth

Clipped to show size, young lady is not me. 
Showing my advanced years, this is a pretty nifty gadget.  Nifty for you whippersnappers is akin to cool or sick.   It has surprisingly good sound for such a small form factor.   I haven't tried it long enough to testify to the 12 hour battery claim.  I have paired it with both my phone and tablet and it worked great.    I tried music, Clash of Clans and general sound effects all of which worked fine. 

The documentation needs to be better.  There is a phone symbol and button but the included documentation does not address that button.  The online documentation addressed it.  The speaker can be used as a speaker phone.  You can't dial from it but you can answer calls when connected via Bluetooth through your phone.  The microphone in the speaker had good clarity and the voice coming out of the speaker was equally good.  It is surprising they don't provide a little more emphasis on a nice feature.  

This appears to be a five star product with four star documentation. 

·                        EXTRA BASS for deep, punchy sound, Seamless streaming with NFC and Bluetooth
·                        Party for longer with a 12-hour battery life, Splash-proof design
·                        Compact, portable design

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
