Sony has refreshed its EXTRA BASS wireless speaker line-up this May 2020 with the additions of the SRS-XB43, SRS-XB33 and SRS-XB23. Expect superb sound quality, toughness and usability for superior sound wherever and whenever.
Sound worth sharing
Enjoy deep, punchy bass thanks to Sony’s newly developed X-Balanced Speaker Unit, capable of achieving 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).
The rigid and lightweight MRC cone and dust cap contributes 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.
This X-Balanced Speaker Unit has an almost rectangular diaphragm compared to more conventional circular ones. 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 has the newly developed non-circular diaphragm and off-center design, maximising the speaker diaphragm, creating more sound pressure, but keeps the speakers compact in size.
Do more, worry less
The new models come with IP67 rating to make them dust resistant, and they’re also even saltwater resistant for those beach parties! They have likewise undergone extensive shock testing and will be able to withstand any knocks, bumps, scrapes and drops of everyday use.
Non-stop fun and new form factor
Add a music festival atmosphere with the speakers’ fresh design which now feature multi-colour line, tweeter and speaker lighting.
Fiestable and Sony | Music Centre apps
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.
New form factor
The new speaker line-up comes in a wide range of colours with a refreshed design, perfectly complimenting any space. 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™.
Battery life and connectivity
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™.
