The XB23 is a super-portable, powerful and durable Bluetooth speaker. Compact, lightweight and easy to take with you, it includes a convenient strap so you can hang it wherever you like. Thanks to Sony's unique X-Balanced speaker units, together with two passive radiators, it delivers powerful sound, with Extra Bass and vocal clarity. It’s IP67-rated waterproof and dustproof, as well as shockproof up to 1.2 metres, boasting up to 12 hours' battery life. To make the party even bigger, you can connect up to 100 compatible wireless speakers with the Party Connect feature, or pair two together for super stereo sound.
Sony’s own X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high sound quality and powerful sound pressure for a richer and deeper sound. Its non-circular diaphragm promotes clarity, reduces distortion, and widens the sound field.
Tailor-made for dance music and heavy grooves, Sony includes its Extra Bass technology. Dual passive radiators work with full-range speakers to enhance low-end tones and boost bass frequencies.
Stream your top tracks wirelessly to the XB23 with Bluetooth. Simply pair your phone or tablet to the speaker and let the music flow. LDAC technology ensures a superior listening experience to conventional Bluetooth.
Compact & portable
Small and compact but packing a mighty punch, it can go anywhere with you and lasts as long as the party does. A full charge gives you up to 12 hours of listening pleasure, or 10 hours with Extra Bass engaged. And it stands securely in either vertical or horizontal position.
Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof
The XB23 is tough and durable enough to be used by the pool, in the park or by the beach. With an IP67 rating it can be immersed in water up to 1 metre deep for up to 30 minutes, is cleaned easily, and is dust-proof too. It’s also shockproof (up to 1.2 metres) so will happily withstand everyday bumps and knocks.
When connected by Bluetooth to your smart phone, you can use the XB23 as a speakerphone, handy for conference calls or group chats.
Using the Sony Music Center App (available on iOS and Android) you can play DJ, controlling tracks and sound modes, all from the convenience of your smart device.
With Party Connect you can connect up to 100 compatible Sony speakers in the series via Bluetooth, synchronising the music, and even lights on selected speakers. Or just pair two together to feel the music in stereo.
