Sony SRS-XB30

Party-pop­per

HWM (Philippines) - - Gear - By Nestor Domingo Jr.

the Sony ex­tra BASS SRS-XB30 is one heck of a wire­less speaker. It is the epit­ome of a mod­ern­ized boom box with its porta­bil­ity and dura­bil­ity in­tact with su­pe­rior fea­tures which makes it a por­ta­ble ver­sion of a party-pop­per through light, sound, and even its power.

the Srs-xb30’s chas­sis is Ipx5-rated wa­ter-re­sis­tant, which means the de­vice can with­stand droplets and driz­zle. De­spite that, how­ever, it is still not ad­vis­able to ex­pose it to any forms of liq­uid, es­pe­cially sea­wa­ter.

Just like any other sound­box, the SRS-XB30 re­ally has the ca­pa­bil­ity to brought the house down with its su­pe­rior sound com­plete with highs, lows, and bass kick­ing right on tar­get.

turn the ex­tra BASS on and you’re up for a ride of your life. this speaker can cover a large room if the vol­ume’s on a full blast. With the Wire­less party Chain fea­ture, the SRS-XB30 can be linked with up to ten com­pat­i­ble au­dio de­vices.

The SRS-XB30 is def­i­nitely dif­fer­ent from the usual one­piece speaker setup where it can only pro­vide one side of the mu­sic and ne­glect­ing the other. You can throw a party with­out much has­sle as the de­vice pro­vides mul­ti­ple av­enues where you can con­nect up to three de­vices and take turns in play­ing tunes. Just ex­pect some beeps along the way if you have trou­bles in do­ing so.

the SRS-XB30 also flashes lights that can go as an ac­com­pa­ni­ment to a party and be used as an in­stant as­sis­tant in set­ting the lis­ten­ing party vibe the wire­less and ef­fort­less way. the lights, apart from mu­sic, can be con­trolled us­ing Sony’s mu­sic Cen­ter app in­stalled on your smart­phone.

As an ad­di­tional func­tion, the SRS-XB30 can be used as a speaker phone. With its Voice As­sist Func­tion, it can also dou­ble as the speaker ver­sion of ei­ther Ap­ple’s Siri or Google’s Voice As­sis­tant.

this speaker’s bat­tery life can last up to a whop­ping 24 hours, so imag­ine spend­ing al­most an en­tire day with it and let the mu­sic flow from time-to-time with­out wor­ry­ing if the de­vice’s bat­tery will dry out any­time soon (heck, your smart­phone may be go­ing down to drain first be­fore this unit does). In case you are very con­scious of your speaker’s health, sim­ply hold the call but­ton for three sec­onds and it will in­form you how much “gas” is left in the “tank.” Just hope you can hear the mes­sage clearly.

If you are look­ing for a good kind to run the party for hours and hours, this speaker might give you your money’s worth. From its bol­ster­ing lights to the loud-thump­ing bass, the Sony ex­tra BASS SRS-XB30 can be con­sid­ered a stand­out.
