Testing out a new toy for Sony, it’s their new Bluetooth / NFC speaker called the BTX 300. 20 watts of power, 8 hours of battery life, AND it has a USB port on the back so you can charge your phone / tablet / mobile device on the go or while plugged in. SCORE!
This thing sounds BAD-ASS! I’ve been using it at work, in my bathroom while I get ready for the morning, and even took it on a hike the other night. It’s got Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC, and the range is around 30-40 feet in my tests.
I’m going to use the heck out of this thing this winter in the gondola on Ajax. No need to wait for the red buckets anymore! 
Pros
Battery life is solid at 8 hours.
Portable, but not too large or too small.
Sound is crisp, clear, and bass is neither too strong or too light.
USB port on the back allows you to charge whatever the heck you want while you’re using the speaker.
Has Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC. (Now if Apple would put NFC in their phones…)
Comes with a convenient neoprene carry case.
Has a line in on the rear, so you can use your old devices that don’t have Bluetooth.
Only $160. Perfect for X-mas gifts.
Cons
No Airplay integration. Probably because adding WiFi and licensing it would bring the price point up.
Not waterproof? I’m really stretching for cons here. 
Tech Specs
Weight: 3 lb 8 oz.
Battery Type: Lithium Ion, non removable.
Output: 10W x2
Wireless/Networking: Bluetooth 3.0 and it supports A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, HSP. Also, it has NFC for one-touch listening with other NFC devices. 
It’s on sale right now for $159, check it out.
