This little guy was something I was really, really, REALLY looking forward to receiving after the Sony Club blogger welcome event in San Diego.  11 of us bloggers got a sneak peek at the Sony splash-proof bluetooth wireless speaker that can also be surround sound if you just push the speaker over on it’s back to blast the sound upwards. It’s finally been released to the public and in my hands so I can demonstrate how this little gem is packed with so much sound and ability to even offer surround just by tipping it over!

I left the tag on for this first pic to show you. This is just if it’s you, it just faces you like any normal speaker.

Have you heard One Republic’s Counting Stars? It’s my song of the week.

It’s also splash-proof – so keep it by your bathroom or kitchen sink, or bring it poolside!  Oh, and of course, you can take calls on it as well!

But when you want the music to flood the room, place it on it’s back like below.

Quite inconspicuous during a get together, isn’t it?  But the sound isn’t, gotta love Sony sound!  It’s amazing quality.

Comes in 5 awesome colors.  I’m kinda coveting the pink one too, naturally.

Have a speaker with a dock?  Oh that’s so 2012!  That’s how I’m feeling so I’m donating my old docking speaker so I can still use my phone and hear my music – or even connect from my computer via bluetooth.  Technology these days!

Diana Elizabeth loves her music but realized that if you let her iTunes library play long enough, eventually a song will come on that mortifies her to pieces that she ever owned.
