20 June 2016 – Sony has unveiled a powerful addition to its wireless speakers line-up, a new range that is dedicated to delivering deep bass. Expanding the existing EXTRA BASS series for when you’re on the move and bringing club sounds into your home, dance music lovers can now enjoy the intensity of deep bass notes in a variety of locations using the one box high power audio system or portable wireless speakers.
SRS-XB3 / SRS-XB2 Portable Wireless Speakers
A whole host of big technologies are housed inside the XB3 to achieve a hugely punchy bass for its small size. These include a newly developed 48mm large full range speaker unit, Sony’s unique DSP which dynamically applies the optimal compression process to suit each level of a track, a large capacity battery to achieve stable, significant output power and dual passive radiators to augment the bass ranges.
Weighing just 930g, small enough to carry around and with a battery life of 24 hours of continuous wireless use, you can party from dusk till dawn.
The smaller SRS-XB2’s powerful sound belies the eyes; its palm-sized design weighs just 480g but encompasses a newly developed 42mm gauge full range speaker unit. Its extra strong magnets deliver a pure bass sound and the lightweight diaphragm improves sound pressure levels. The SRS-XB2 also houses Sony’s DSP and passive radiator which can deliver higher acoustic pressure and punchier bass notes than ever heard in a compact size.
A four hours recharge of the battery provides approximately 12 hours of continuous wireless use, so you do not have to worry about running out of tunes.
Both wireless speakers have multiple usage options. The SRS-XB3 is a party chameleon; use it horizontally or vertically depending on your own style or space limitations. Both the XB2 and XB3 enable you to wirelessly add two speakers together using the ’Speaker Add’ function for even more powerful sound; Double mode will play music back through two speakers simultaneously and Stereo mode will play the music in stereo.
Forget about spillages if your pool party is pumping as the speakers are water resistant . They’re also so simple to use; with NFC one-touch Bluetooth connection, all you have to do is touch your smartphone or music device to the speaker, and you can start listening to your party tracks instantly.
