Sony Electronics at CES 2019 has announced a refreshed Extra Bass wireless speaker line-up which includes; SRS-XB12, SRS-XB22 and SRS-XB32 portable speakers, along with the new GTK-XB72 high-power speaker and a new outdoor party speaker, the GTK-PG10.
The XB22 and XB32 speakers come with dual passive radiators that work together with stereo full-range speakers to enhance low-end tones and give the bass a boost. The XB12 uses a single passive radiator to achieve a similar effect. Users can link up multiple XB72 speakers using Wireless Party Chain via Bluetooth. The XB22, XB32, and XB72 feature ‘LIVE SOUND’ mode, which expands the service area of the sound via angled speakers and Digital Signal Processing technology, producing a three-dimensional sound that puts users in the thick of the music.
The XB12, XB22 and XB32 speakers come with an IP67 rating and are completely party-proof with a rubber-like coating on the XB12. The XB32 and XB22 are also rust and shock resistant. The XB12 is equipped with a detachable strap to hook it anywhere. The company claims that the XB32 can last up to 24 hours and can even charge mobile devices. The XB72 also features an FM Tuner that gives you even more flexibility to enjoy music.
The XB22 and XB32 come with a built-in accelerometer which lets the Party Booster feature reacts from tapping on them to create unique lighting and sound effects, including single- and multi-color line lighting, respectively. Additionally, both the XB32 and XB72 have built-in flashing strobe lights.
Lastly, the GTK-PG10 speaker is easy to transport and is also tripod-compatible and has a built-in rechargeable battery, boasting up to 13 hours of listening. The outdoor speaker also incorporates a table and cup holders on the splash-proof top panel to let nothing get in the way of the next celebration or tailgate. There is also an FM tuner and a convenient charger for mobile devices. The GTK-PG10 is compatible with the Sony Music Center and Fiestable apps. All the speakers will be available in spring 2019.
