Pocket-lint

Blinded by the lights, filthy urban bass delights

from Pocket-lint

Exuberance is the XB40's raison d'être, which is exactly what you get - unapologetic extroversion. Brash bass and big beats, serious volume, plus the lights fantastic. And all that wrapped up in a rugged-looking and colourful design.

A powerful Bluetooth speaker with good battery life

from NDTV

The Sony SRS-XB40 offers powerful sound for the price, and if you look online, you can find it selling for as little as Rs. 13,340. It isn’t as compact as most portable speakers, but given the volume output, size of the drivers and battery life, it seems as through there is a specific market for it.

A great portable speaker for your poolside parties

from VR-Zone

The Sony SRS-XB40 may seem affordable for its big sound, great battery life, water resistance and features. However, its light show and DJ features are quite gimmicky, it uses a proprietary charger and it does not have full waterproofing like competing models from JBL and Ultimate Ears.

Music gets a visual identity

from Gadgets Now

Sony is known for offering devices that aren't easy on the pocket. But the SRS-XB40, at Rs 16,999 could be a game changer. The bluetooth speaker delivers near flawless performance and the LED lights enhance the party experience. As always, the audio is clear and bass levels are impressive.

You have to really love bass or flashy colors to love it

from TechRadar

The Sony SRS-XB40 delivers big sound in an equally big speaker. It's feature-packed and provides a light show for your music but only EDM or rap lovers will dig the bass-heavy tuning. For its price, it simply lacks the resolution and nuance of its competitors.

When push comes to shove, the XB40 is not just another wireless portable speaker on the market, it’s something that has more to offer. You can get creative with the SongPal app and pretend you’re the world’s best DJ at parties or get louder with up to ten XB40s’ – it’s light and very portable with a long battery life too.

PC Magazine

Armed with some serious bass response and a built-in LED light show

from PC Magazine

Booming bass, a flashing LED light show, and a water-resistant design—the Sony SRS-XB40 isn't light on features. Audio performance is strong for the $200 range, but it's not the absolute best we've heard for the price, so some of this speaker's cost is paying for those LEDs.

Very durable, has a nice long battery life, and is fully compatible with the latest audio standards

from Nerd Techy

Sony really hit it out of the park with the XB40. We’ve been using stereo sound since the 1960s, so it’s surprising that it’s taken so long for a company to create an easy way to get a stereo speaker system. While they were at it, they made sure that you weren’t restricted to just two speakers.
