Ratings and Reviews
I just bought the srs xb31 for $150, I love the speaker but you must have the app running and Bluetoothed in order to use any extra features.... ok that’s ok if it actually would work 1/4 if the time. It’s always losing its sync and goes to default. There’s a party mode where you can bang on the speaker to play drums and stuff and I love it! Gives you something to tap while listening to music but half 75% of the time the app doesn’t recognize the device even when I’m still playing music, so I have to close the app, turn bt off and on, reconnect because it doesn’t try to automatically, then go into the app crossing my fingers, and half the time it shows 3 extra speakers saying “need to be setup” but still doesn’t connect to mine.... so repeat. Finally have it working and your settings ready to go!? Well have fun when you lock your phone and go back into the app because it’s unsynced again... and just a helpful tip, don’t lock your phone while in the app, eventually you’ll have to restart your phone to even get it to work because it bugs out.... the quality of the speaker is what I expected with Sony but the app really ruins their reputation with me if I see “extra features in app”. Recommend the speaker if you just want good sound and bass, but don’t recommend it if you was wanting to use the extra features of the speaker and if that’s you deciding factor between $150 and another good speaker with as good quality for $60...
The app and the speakers are definitely 2 different things
A lot of these reviews are the same—speakers are great but the app is not. I agree. I have xb31 and xb32s—using party chain became a challenge because of the chain got broken, I had to disconnect all the speakers, forget them, then repair—even if the party chain worked with the same speakers. Once I got it fully working, I kept having to relevel the volumes on the speakers after a while—the leveling out didn’t work at all. Luckily I only had 4 to maintain during a party and not more or it could have caused the music to fail altogether.
The speakers are phenomenal. The app is almost a dealbreaker because it makes them seem glitchy. These speakers have been marketed with this feature and it just doesn’t work well enough to be reliable. I hope that Sony fixes this soon—it’s enough to cause me to question the brand.
Don’t like app
I just tried to use the app to set my equalizer after updating the software in my speaker the equalizer does not seem to adjust and save the settings it will adjust and make sound but when closing out everything goes back to default instead of saving it in the speaker like the extra base slider up to 100% it’ll stay that way long as the apps open but the moment you close the app everything fails I will give this Apple one star rating for now hopefully in the future if Sony updates it makes a better it could possibly be a five star rating really love the speaker I do not like the app at all App needs 100% better updates and I don’t like the fact that you have to use the app just to set Dj affects her sounds I feel there should’ve been extra buttons on the speaker itself for that instead of happened to download the app and use it I do not like this app at all it’s not saving settings at all in the speaker itself i’m just going to go back to using the speaker in default and delete the app I had my base sounding good until I close the app out then it went back to default which was the speaker default setting that it came with automatically out of the box I’m just gonna use it like that and I’m gonna forget this app all together and delete it from my phone I don’t want to mess my speaker up
