Sony Middle East and Africa (MEA) announced today that it will further expand the EXTRA BASS series to include four new portable wireless speakers designed to enable users to enjoy the intensity of deep bass notes in a variety of locations and scenarios. EXTRA BASS technology delivers powerful, clear bass sound where it’s hard to find – in a compact, portable speaker.
All speakers feature easy, one-touch connectivity and music streaming with NFC and Bluetooth compatibility. Thanks to the compact size and long battery life of these speakers, they can be easily picked up and moved to where the action is. The perfect combination of style and portability, this newly expanded EXTRA BASS wireless speaker series looks and sounds great wherever you put them, indoors or out knowing that the IPX5 rated water-resistant design will protect them against splashes.
Speakers such as the SRS-XB40, SRS-XB30 and the SRS-XB10 all feature a flexible two-way design which gives you great sound, wherever you place the system. Set it up horizontally, or flip it upright if you’re short on space. The SRS-XB40 features lighting effects with an LED perimeter line-light, a strobe flash and speaker light.
The line-light creates multicolor patterns, ranging from pure white to rainbow. Synchronising with the rhythm of the beat, the power and speed of the light display matches the music’s mood and atmosphere. The SRS-XB30 has a similar multi-colour line-light and strobe, and the SRS-XB20 features a single color line-light which compliments the speaker color.
Using the wireless party chain, speakers can be connected to each other to enable users to enjoy a performance featuring synchronised lights and great sound. Up to 10 units can be interconnected via Bluetooth (mix and match the SRS-XB40/XB30/XB20 models) and used interactively. It is also possible to pair two speakers of the same model together to enjoy stereo sound.
Stereo mode takes advantage of two independent audio channels in order to create the impression of sound being heard from various directions, similar to natural hearing. Other great features include Voice Guidance which announces important to know information, such as the battery life level of the device.
These models also allow multi-device connectivity, meaning that more than one smartphone can be connected at the same time, enabling user to quickly switch between music sources. With the SRS-XB40 and SRS-XB30, it is also possible to recharge a smartphone by connecting it to the USB-A port on these devices via a USB cable which enables the speaker to be used like a portable battery when the user’s smartphone battery is running low on power.
Plus, all four models can be used as speakerphones when paired with your smartphone. For those really on the go, the SRS-XB10 offers EXTRA BASS sound, incredible loudness and punchy bass with a tiny body with a long battery life of up to approximately 16 hours. SRS-XB10 Take advantage of its super-compact size and portability and enjoy the music anywhere. Two listening styles can optimise the users’ experience.
In vertical mode, the omni-directional sound can be enjoyed by a group of friends. In horizontal mode, the music is directed straight to the listeners’ ears. The silicon strap becomes a stand for the tiny speaker to help direct the sound. The same strap can also be used to attach the speaker to a backpack or just about anywhere, so that great tunes are always in reach. And like the XB40, XB30, and XB20, the new XB10 features a water-resistant IPX5 design. The XB10 can also be paired with another of its kind, to provide stereo mode, which creates a broader sound space and the impression of hearing music from various directions.
