With “heavy bass and expansive sound”, Sony hopes that the new SRS-XB13 mini speaker will be a success.
Sony’s compact speaker, SRS-XB13, will thus deliver bass sound beyond the ordinary. Given that it is really small, we are a bit skeptical, but the appearance is deceptive, the manufacturer promises.
Regardless of the basic reproduction, the speaker has other functions and features that seem really nice. We can start with the price tag of 650 kronor and the opportunity to connect two speakers in stereo. The connection to your mobile / music player is via Bluetooth and the battery should be able to play 16 hours of music playback on a single charge.
Thrives well outdoors
SRS-XB13 is dust-protected and waterproof according to the IP67 standard and is expected to work well on spring and summer barbecue evenings and beach hangouts. It also has a built-in microphone so you can use it as a speakerphone.
Easily connects to your Android
Anyone with an Android mobile can connect to the speaker via Fast Pair technology, but of course it also works with iOS devices and computers with Bluetooth.
If you give yourself an SRS-XB13 as a gift, feel free to write a small line in the comments below and tell us if the speaker lives up to Sony’s description.
