Sony Electronics Launches Two New Wireless Speakers, the Powerful Party Speaker SRS-XV800 and the Compact SRS-XB100
Sony Electronics Inc. today announced two new wireless speakers, the SRS-XV800 and the SRS-XB100. The new SRS-XV800 speaker is built to party with loud and clear sound. Whether hosting an epic party or enjoying a movie or TV show, this speaker provides a powerful, room-filling sound. The new SRS-XB100 is a small wireless speaker that packs a powerful, clear sound with incredible portability.
SRS-XV800 – Powerful surround sound for bigger parties
Life should be lived at full volume. Turn up the music to full volume and dance all night with friends to clear and rich sound with the SRS-XV800. This model features Omni-directional Party Sound that carries powerful sound to every corner of the room. Five tweeters deliver clear sound to both the front and rear of the speaker. Plus, it’s all backed up with higher clarity, less distortion and punchy bass thanks to dual X-Balanced Speaker Units.
Sony’s X-Balanced Speaker unit features an almost rectangular diaphragm that not only maximises the area of the speaker diaphragm but also increases sound pressure for deeper and punchier bass, less distortion and greater vocal clarity for a richer, clearer and more rewarding listening experience.
Big sound on the move
With a built-in battery of up to 25 hours of listening time, the SRS-XV800 will keep the music going all night. If the speaker is running out of battery, there’s no need to worry. With the speaker’s quick charging, users can get up to 3 hours of playing time from just 10 minutes of charging.
The built-in wheels and handle on the SRS-XV800 allows for an easy roll all the way to the party. Whenever moving the speaker simply take hold of the convenient carry handle and tilt it back.
Indirect illumination produces ambient light, lighting up the room in a way that matches anyone’s unique style. Create an immersive experience by simply playing music through the speaker, as the lights will automatically sync to the beat and rhythm of the music, creating a captivating display of colors.
Enhance the viewing experience
Thanks to deep bass and room-filling sound provided by Sony’s unique TV Sound Booster consumers will get a sound so real, it will feel like they’ve entered the world on the screen.
A combination of TV sound and the SRS-XV800’s two rear tweeters and X-Balanced Speaker Units boost the TV watching experience by enhancing the deep bass and realistic high-frequencies. The sound waves bounce off the walls to surround the listener with sound. The TV Sound Booster function lets users enjoy the enhanced sound of audio-visual contents, such as live performance videos and movies, and immerses them in everything they’re watching.
A portable, plug-in party-starter
The SRS-XV800 also features karaoke and guitar input, intuitive and illuminated touch panel, water resistant IPX4 rating and Bluetooth® Fast Pair for AndroidTM making it even easier to listen to music no matter the location.
Sony | Music Center and Fiestable
The new SRS-XV800 is compatible with both Sony | Music Center and Fiestable apps. With Sony | Music Center users can select playlists, change lighting patterns, and sound modes all from the dance floor. Fiestable allows access to fun features to help create the ultimate party atmosphere, such as making a playlist, karaoke functions including Voice Changer and Echo, plus DJ control to add sound effects.
SRS-XB100 – A small wireless speaker that packs a powerful, clear sound
The SRS-XB100 speaker is great for those on the move. The speaker includes a passive radiator for powerful sound and offers clear sound even at high volumes thanks to the off-centre diaphragm. Don’t be fooled by its compact shape, this compact speaker packs an impressive wide spreading sound. The Sound Diffusion Processor expands sound in any space, with its DSP technology.
The SRS-XB100 has up to 16 hours of battery life, is water-resistant and dustproof with an IP67 rating and comes with a durable exterior and multi-way strap so it’s perfect for life on the go.
