Sony announced two additions to its audio range dedicated to delivering deep bass: the SRS-XB402M wireless speaker and WH-XB900N wireless noise cancelling headphones.
The XB402M EXTRA BASS speaker promises to enhance lower frequencies and is offering powerful sound pressure across a wider area thanks to angled speaker units with a hybrid material edge, which reduces distortion. Deep bass is achieved through the dual passive radiators, while the newly designed front grille enables more sound to escape.
With LIVE SOUND mode, angled speakers and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology sends your music to a wider area, giving you a three-dimensional sound experience. The speaker also features multi-colour line lights and a flashing strobe that syncs to the beat.
It’s now easier to get the party started with just the sound of your voice with Amazon Alexa [HS2] built-in on the XB402M.
With Spotify Connect you can stream your playlists, favourite artists or podcasts through the XB402M in just a few easy steps. Connect the XB402M to your smartphone, tablet or laptop via Wi-Fi and the Spotify app to start listening.
With an IP67 rating, the XB402M speaker is waterproof and dustproof. Additionally, it is shockproof and rustproof, so it’s durable enough to party anywhere. Sony says you can party for as long as you want with up to 12 hours battery life. BLUETOOTH compatibility means that you can pair the speaker to your smartphone, tablet, PC and more.
The SRS-XB402M will be priced at approximately €269.
