Sony XG300 review: a pricey Bluetooth speaker, but so worth it

Sony SRS-XG300: two-minute review

Ah, Sony. The maker of the original Walkman is back with another X-Series Bluetooth speaker called the Sony XG300, so-named by the company because its X-prefixed speakers all feature Sony’s non-circular and party-friendly X-Balanced Speaker Unit. There’s also a new XG500, which is a little bigger, but we’re focusing on the XG300 today. 

The potential problem for the Sony XG300 is that while Sony, Ultimate Ears, JBL and Bose had been the frontrunners in our best Bluetooth speaker roundups for quite a few years, recently a few novelties and newbies struck gold – names such as Tribit and Earfun are gaining traction.
