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...
This app is ridiculously broken, you'd think that with a company like Sony they'd be able to make a decent functioning app for their products that cost in the triple digits. I Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they had some college student design this app. How many updates has this app had? Yet how does it still not work? And why is the interface so poor? Sony, you are on the NYSE. You're one of tech's giants, yet somehow in 2019 you can't manage a simple app. I'd leave zero stars if I could. please fix the bugs and redo the entire interface. nobody that has a phone capable of installing apps needs to access their library or streaming platforms via the app--please remove this the entire aspect is pointless. if somebody is going to download your app, it's to customize the settings, not to play music on apps that they ALREADY have installed. This app doesn't have to do much. Just fix the issue where the settings you select won't stay permanent! They only work when the app is open or recently used. Like I said, there are issues present in this app that it's like they assigned this to an intern. Sorry to the intern that made this app, but I'd leave zero stars if I could. 5/5 stars for the product though.
App is terrible. Sony doesn’t care.
There are plenty of reviews stating how awful this app is. Beyond bad. There was an update 4 days before writing this review ‘improving on the quality’ of the app, which is false. Nothing got better. All I want to do is adjust the EQ level of the speaker (speaker is great btw). Half the time I enter the app it tells me I need to re-setup everything. Garbage app.
Update: months later and it is still a pile of garbage. I keep seeing updates to ‘improve the quality of operation’, but nothing has been fixed. Each time I turn the speaker in it’s a gamble whether or not it will work. The app consistently fails to recognize, or it lists the speaker 5 times and says it needs setup, then crashes. I bought a second small speaker on sale and linked them using party chain. It works sometimes. Most of the time I need to turn them in and off a few times and re-group them each time before it works.
Sony— WHY ARE YOU SO BAD AT THIS. FIRE YOUR APP DESIGN TEAM AND START OVER. THEY BRING SHAME UPON YOU.
