    The Sony SRS-XB31 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that doesn’t really break through any boundaries for the category as a whole, but it doesn’t break the bank either. Read more

    • Solid bass, Good price
    • Minimal smarts, Clunky app

    You’d need pretty big pockets if you wanted to carry Sony’s SRS-XB31 around, but fortunately if you did, you could really claim it was a party in your pocket, because that’s what’s on offer here. Read more

    • Loud, Water resistant, Lots of battery life, Charges over microUSB, Includes flashy lights made for parties, Virtual instruments are a neat, weird feature, Good value
    • Flashy lights aren't always (or remotely) in sync, Virtual instruments will never be used, Bass can be a bit heavy

    This is my second Sony portable speaker and just like the first one I bought 4 years ago, it's great value for money. Solidly built (but not heavy), it's perfect for travelling. Compact size and heaps of crystal clear sound. Read more

    • Above average sound but not as good as surround speakers
    • More sound settings would be great. Only 3 preset sound settings to choose from
