    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

    I have the older version of this speaker, this newer version has slightly better sound quality. The battery doesn't seem to last quite as long, but that could be due to lights or using it more at the moment. Easy to setup, and on special it is unbeatable value for money. Read more
