Sony wants you to know it's cool

from Sound Guys

The SRS-XB32 might not be the best waterproof speaker we've ever tested, but it's packed with features and fills a particular niche that makes it a great option for the price. It's water resistant, light, and able to be taken just about anywhere.

Not strong enough to counterbalance its hefty size and weight

Though the Sony SRS-XB32 is a good speaker overall, in our opinion it fails to find any sort of balance that makes it a compelling way to fill any particular niche. It doesn't feel quite loud enough to justify its extra weight, it doesn't sound quite good enough to justify its above average price, and its unique flashing lights don't add enough to the experience to cancel out the former two complaints. While we don't hate the Sony SRS-XB32, and we highly doubt anyone else would either, we just feel that most people could find a better speaker for their particular needs.

As a portable Bluetooth speaker with a ruggedized frame and powerful drivers, the Sony XB32 does the job of being a versatile playback option for indoor and outdoor situations. The LED lights, Party Booster and app settings are like cherries on top to stand out from competitors. If you got two of these to stereo pair them, we think you’d have a good piece of kit.

Flashy lights, fun, amazing sound—and it's waterproof!

from TechHive

For a waterproof (to 3-feet immersion) speaker, Sony's SRS-XB32 sounds great. In fact it doesn't sound like an IP67 speaker, which is a high compliment. It's also fun to watch.

Solid audio experience and a modest light show

from PC Magazine

The Sony SRS-XB32's ruggedized build, paired with its ability to project powerful audio from a relatively modest frame, make it an ideal outdoor wireless speaker. For the price, we think the SRS-XB32 is a strong option.
