As a leading manufacturer in the field of electronic products, Sony Corporation is overwhelming in manufacturing smart speakers without doubts. There are more than dozens of different products under the catalog of wireless speakers, where you can absolutely find your favorite one.
The EXTRA BASS series seems to be the best sellers. This series is featured with the LIVE SOUND mode, the sound effects booster, the flashy lights, waterproof layer and so on. Even so, it can't be 100% perfect, especially in the compatibility. The EXTRA BASS portable Bluetooth speaker doesn't support AirPlay. That means Apple users can't directly play their Apple playlists on Sony wireless speakers.
