Great

Sony, the name that resonates with one of the finest electronics products that the world has seen over the years. And belonging to the same lineage of fine products, is yet another device SRS-XB41, the Extra Bass Bluetooth portable speaker that was recently launched along with a slew of other devices.

Once, out of the box, the 1.5 kilograms device wrapped in a textured cloth with the RGB lights on the edges and a top panel with a rubber texture makes it look even and elegant. The top panel of the device houses the power, Bluetooth, LIVE, volume rocker and play/pause buttons. While, the rear panel has the Micro-USB port, a DC input, a 3.5mm socket and a USB-A port. In addition to these multiple ports, rear panels also has three more buttons tagged as Batt, WPC and Add. The Batt button displays battery status and controls the light. The WPC allows you to connect number of similar Sony devices to form a chain link. And, finally the ADD button is used to connect another SRS-XB41 device to create a stereo audio effect.

As you get ready to spend your evening with music, Sony SRS-XB41 speaker lights up the mood with extra beats and lights, especially the outdoors, where it works the best. As for any bass heavy speakers, settings is the key, so is with this speaker. It is highly recommended to download the Sony Music Center app and set the mode as per the music before you venture to enjoy it.Best part of enjoying music on this speaker is that you don’t have to worry about splashing any drink on the speakers or placing the device in sand or disturbed about dust, as the speaker is build to work in dusty harsh environments, all thanks to the brilliant dust and water resistant quality (IP67) the speaker posses.

Well, be it your balcony, backyard, beach or pool side, this powerful battery powered Sony speaker let the music play on for almost whole day on one single full charge. The cost may be a hiccup for some and It may fall short on certain counts but all in all, Sony SRS-XB41 is music to ears. Another good part, it is available at all the leading retail stores as well as on Sony Centre at Dubai Mall in Dubai, UAE.
