- Tech Radar Recommends Sony SRS-XB33 November 2020
The powerful, portable and durable XB33 Bluetooth speaker delivers high quality sound, with added synchronised lighting. Sony's unique X-Balanced speaker units deliver impactful sound, with Extra Bass and superior vocal clarity. It’s IP67-rated waterproof and dustproof, as well as shockproof up to 1.2 metres, and boasts up to 24 hours’ battery life. Multi-coloured speaker, tweeter and line lights sync to the beat, and are fully customisable via the Sony Music Center and Fiestable apps (available on iOS and Android). You can also engage Live Sound mode which creates a more immersive sound experience that’s closer to the live festival vibe.
Sony’s own X-Balanced Speaker Unit, with two woofers and two tweeters, together with two passive radiators 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.
Music & Lights
A multi-colour line light around the grille and a central speaker light illuminate in time with the music for the ultimate portable party. So you can dance in the light with the music playing loud.
Bluetooth & NFC
Stream your top tracks wirelessly to the XB33 with Bluetooth and NFC connectivity. Simply pair your phone or tablet to the speaker (one touch connection with NFC) 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, the SRS-XB33 can go anywhere with you and lasts as long as the party does. A full charge gives you up to 24 hours of listening pleasure, or 14 hours with Extra Bass engaged. And it stands securely in either horizontal or vertical position.
Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof
The XB33 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 XB33 as a speakerphone, handy for conference calls or group chats. And you can keep your smart device’s power topped up with its USB charging port.
App control and Live Sound Mode
Using the Sony Music Center App you can play DJ, controlling tracks and lighting, all from the convenience of your smart device. Engaging Live Sound Mode via the app, it throws your music out to a wider area and creates a live, festival vibe.
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.
