New portable Sony speakers and a 16th birthday party playlist

I’ve written about playlists created on Spotify and often write about music, whether it’s in a commercial or a song that I really like. But how can you listen to a song without speakers? Sure, you can listen through the speakers in your computer, phone, or your car stereo. But for me, it’s something special to blast my playlists through a Sony Bluetooth speaker. For the longest time I used, and still do actually, an SRS-XB41. I love that thing! But then…

Ohhhhh, but then….

I saw the SRS-XB43 in tan, and it was calling to me. Using my Sony Rewards points, I ordered two (because why get one when you can get two, ya know?). Here’s one of them now…

I got them in the nick of time, just before celebrating one of my niece’s 16th birthday at a Florida beach. I sort of appointed my self as the house DJ because I want to test out these speakers in a surround sound type situation. Of course, there are also a couple of custom playlists. Check them out on Spotify by clicking the links, called Ava Party Playlist and Ava Chill Playlist.

I’ve run a few tests with the speakers, setting them up outside by a volleyball court and on beach house porch using the song below and *chef’s kiss* they sound great.


I suppose it’s necessary to post an update on how the speakers hold up? Yeah, I’ll post an update on how the speakers hold up. Will they be loud enough for teenagers approvals? What will feedback be from them, and the adults hanging out beachside? Not as importantly (but secretly- WAY MORE IMPORTANTLY!!), will my playlists be a hit?

Party on and thanks for dropping in…
