Sony ups the ante in personal audio with new Extra Bass speakers


Hot on the heels of launching its latest Airpod competitor, Sony brings out the latest in its wireless, portable Extra Bass speaker range with the release of two variants: the SRS-XB22 and SRS-XB32. The new models have integrated dual passive radiators that function along with stereo speakers to enhance low-end audio and enrich the bass.

Sony Extra Bass: Features

Sony fortifies the point that these new speakers are meant to keep a party rolling by integrating a brand-new feature, Party Booster. The XB22 and XB32 light up in response to your touch and voice. In addition, they can also be synced up to your phone via the Fiestable app to get additional party features, such as matching the lights to the music to recreate the feel of a concert or club.

The XB22 and XB32 also come with a new Live Sound feature, which replicates the sound distribution at a music festival or concert. Sony has made this possible by using angled speakers and Digital Signal Processing Technology.

Users can enjoy these features all day long thanks to the 2800mAh and 2700mAh batteries found in the XB22 and XB32, respectively. These speakers are also IP67-rated, which means they are water- and dust-resistant, making them perfect for a pool party.

The Extra Bass XB22 and XB32 are priced at Dh399 and Dh599, making them true contenders in the affordable yet capable portable speaker market and a certain purchase in your next tech shopping spree.

The XB22 and XB32 are currently available for purchase at the Sony Boutique in the Dubai Mall and other electronics stores across the UAE.
