Sony Announces EXTRA BASS Wireless Speakers

Sony Electronics Inc. (NYSE: SNE) recently reported new EXTRA BASS wireless speaker lineup, including additions in the SRS-Xb43, SRS-XB33 and SRS-XB23.  Users can enjoy superior audio quality, durability and usability wherever they go.  With up to 24 hours of battery life.  “Customers expect best-in-class sound when they purchase any Sony audio product, and these new wireless speakers are no exception,” said Mike Fasulo, president and chief operating officer, Sony Electronics North America. “This new lineup offers peak performance by creating clear, full sound with new colors and a compact, stylish design.”

The new lineup touts:

EXTRA BASS™ Sound: Enjoy deep, punchy bass anywhere with Sony’s latest EXTRA BASS™ wireless speakers. The layout of the speakers’ side passive radiators is optimized to reproduce clear bass while a rigid and lightweight Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) cone and dust cap contribute to the sound quality.

X-Balanced Speaker Unit: Sony’s newly developed X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high-quality audio and powerful sound pressure for a richer and deeper listening experience. The unit’s non-circular shape maximizes the speaker diaphragm area, increasing sound pressure for punchier bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining the same sound pressure, resulting in less distortion. For example, XB33’s level of sound pressure has increased by around 30 percent and its distortion rate has decreased by around 25 percent, when compared to its predecessor XB32.

The X-Balanced speaker in the XB33 and XB23 features something similar to a rectangular diaphragm in its 2-way speaker system that combines a woofer for low to mid frequencies with a dedicated tweeter for higher ranger frequencies.
