Sony Middle East and Africa refreshed its EXTRA BASS wireless speaker line-up with the addition of the SRS-XB43, SRS-XB33 and SRS-XB23.
EXTRA BASS sound is achieved on the XB wireless speaker line up thanks to Sony’s renowned audio technology. Sony’s newly developed X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high sound quality and powerful sound pressure for a richer, deeper and more rewarding listening experience. The unit’s non-circular shape maximises the area of the speaker diaphragm, increasing sound pressure for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining the same sound pressure, resulting in less distortion. For example, the level of the sound pressure on the XB33 has increased by approx. 30% and distortion rate is reduced by approx. 25% compared to the predecessor model (SRS-XB32).
Unlike the circular diaphragm in a conventional speaker unit, the X-Balanced Speaker Unit in the XB43 features an almost rectangular diaphragm. Its 2-way speaker system combines a woofer for low to mid frequencies with a dedicated tweeter for the higher range frequencies. The result is powerful sound, deep punchy bass and exceptional vocal clarity.
The X-Balanced speaker unit in the XB33 and XB23 features a newly developed non-circular diaphragm and off-centre design. This new design maximises the speaker diaphragm, creating more sound pressure, but keeps the speakers compact in size.
The rigid and lightweight Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) cone and dust cap contribute to the sound quality. The layout of the side passive radiators has also been optimised across all three models to reproduce clear bass sound. LIVE SOUND mode brings your party to life with a 3-dimensional sound experience as if you were at a live venue.
The new models have an IP67 rating, so you can take your speaker to the beach, the forest, the desert or wherever you like – it will carry on playing no matter how dusty the surface. The speakers are even saltwater resistant so the fun can continue even in the sea. The speakers have undergone extensive shock testing and thanks to the latest shock-proof durable design, can withstand the inevitable knocks, bumps and scrapes that come with everyday use. Now even the clumsiest of accidents are no longer an issue, even if you drop them, the speakers will keep working.
You can add a music festival atmosphere with the speakers’ fresh design which now feature multi-colour line, tweeter and speaker lighting. User can use the “Fiestable” companion app to recreate a lively club feeling straight from your smartphone. Let the lights flash in sync with the beat, or simply change the colour to suit your mood. You can even control the speaker from the dancefloor with the “Sony | Music Centre” app. You can select your favourite playlist, cue the next song or turn the lighting off to suit your mood.
Plus, with the new Party Connect feature you can connect up to 100 compatible wireless speakers with Bluetooth® technology to sync the music and lights so everyone dances to the same beat. Compact, lightweight and easy to carry, the XB23 fits perfectly into a backpack pocket or the cupholder of your camping chair. It also features a convenient strap to hang it from a tent or tree during a weekend camping trip.
You can now charge the speakers via the newly adopted USB-Type-C. With a battery life of up to 24 hours, the party can continue all night long. Plus, you can connect your smartphone via USB Type-A for battery charging, so your phone can last as long as you do. Listen to your favourite music on the go by simply connecting your phone to the speakers using Bluetooth® technology and NFC.
