The Sony SRS-XB3 portable wireless speaker has been launched in India, with the brand hoping to attract buyers with its advanced bass abilities. It’s been slapped with a Rs 12990 price tag, but is up for sale at Rs 9990 via a couple of online stores.
The main headline-grabber when it comes to the Sony SRS-XB3 is its dedicated extra bass button to add an extra kick of impact to any song. The brand claims the sound produced is tailor-made for dance music. It’s come up with a unique digital signal processor (DSP) for this purpose, making sure the device delivers punchy bass and loudness.
The 1.89-inch full-range driver of the SRS-XB3 additionally ships with an embedded magnet and long stroke to make deep bass output possible. The company has further equipped it with a light diaphragm for high sound pressure and dual passive radiators for superior bass ranges. The brand claims its native LDAC audio codec enables it to transmit 3 times the data current technologies are capable of wirelessly.
Sony goes as far as to claim that the speakers are the first to supply Hi-Res audio quality through Bluetooth Audio. As far as portability and durability goes, the gadget weighs in at 930g, measures 211 x 80 x 83mm and is water resistant to a certain extent. Specs-wise, it’s backed by an 8800mAh battery which can supposedly last for up to 24 hours on a single charge.
