Sony SRSXB12B Portable Water Proof Wireless Speaker $63 (Normally $79) @ Officeworks

70

Grabbed one of these last week and was very happy with the price and the sound from such a little speaker.
Normal price is $79, currently at JB for $69 - Maybe they can price match for cheaper?
This is the new model replacing the XB10, the XB12 is now fully water proof and submersible which is cool

More colours available: Officeworks Link

    Cheap? yes, How is this a bargain though? how much is it normally?

    I bought this from HN for $48 only a few months ago.

    Not a deal.

    Great little speaker with some good bass for its size but you can get under $50 for the earlier model.

        For the SRS-XB10 past deal was on $48 Amazon (expired) w/Prime, similar price at OW and JB HiFi had it on special for about $50 (expired). Office Works would have priced match JB at the time. Not sure how the XB12 compares to XB10 but really happy with XB10. Worth the wait for XB10 price to come down again if XB12 is the new model replacing XB10.

          Yes, I saw these but those were stock clearances when the new model was about to come out. Very few places even stock the XB10 anymore.

    Given that this is water proof, does it make it a good speaker for the pool? Not planning to spend a fortune but would love to have some music while enjoying the pool. If not, any other recommendations with comparable price?

    The Good Guys eBay have this Sony SRSXB12B Speaker available for $55.20 after using the 20% off code "PGGUY".
    Postage $5.26 or pickup free in store, or better yet price beat with Officeworks!!

      Price match doesn’t apply to coupon codes for officeworks so they would only match the advertised price not after the 20% PGGUY code.

        eBay Good Guys Advertised price is $69 currently.

      •  

        Oh yeah, I forgot about Officeworks sneaky caveat!!

        •  

          eBay Good Guys @ $55.20 after 20% off is definitely an attractive deal. But unless you have a Good Guys nearby to save the postage, otherwise it is probably easier to just buy from officeworks @ $63.

          Still battling whether to get it or wait for a better deal.
