The Sony SRS-XB100 holds a spot on our list of the best cheap Bluetooth speakers, and it’s easy to see why. In our Sony SRS-XB100 review, we had almost nothing but praise for this device.

The Sony SRS-XB100’s setup includes a small driver, passive radiator and sound diffusion processor, which come together to create an awesome audio experience. We heard nuanced, detailed sound without any tinniness you might expect from a cheap Bluetooth speaker. Even in noisy environments, like a windy day on the beach, the SRS-XB100 still carried sound well. Plus, if you decide to pick up two SRS-XB100 speakers, you can stereo-pair them together to imitate a surround sound experience.

The Sony SRS-XB100’s sound quality is especially impressive considering its size. Measuring 3.43 x 4.41-inches and weighing 9.7 ounces, this speaker is seriously portable and can be taken with you anywhere you go. A carrying strap is included and the speaker comes in a range of fun colors.

Potentially the best aspect of the Sony SRS-XB100 is its long battery life. It’s rated for 16 hours of listening time, which we found to be accurate in our tests. If you use it for a couple of hours a day, you could go for more than a week without having to charge it. However, the SRS-XB100 takes a lengthy 4.5 hours to fully charge, and the included charging cable is a little short for our liking.

It’s hard to find such a great Bluetooth speaker in this price range, so make sure to snap up this deal before it’s gone. If you’re hungry for more sales, check out our Amazon deals coverage.
