Press release:

SAN DIEGOAug. 30, 2018 – Sony Electronics Inc. today announced two new EXTRA BASS™ wireless speakers: the SRS-XB501G and the pocket-sized SRS-XB01. Both offer powerful EXTRA BASS sound while on-the-go for a legendary party experience, anywhere.

Powerful partying with big bass 
EXTRA BASS™ creates deeper and richer bass with high sound pressure that will enhance your favorite tunes.

The XB501G is engineered to deliver powerful sound from satellite speaker units and subwoofer units, which reinforce the sound pressure, while the clever rounded form helps minimize vibrations and decreases sound interferences. The digital signal processor fully utilizes the EXTRA BASS technology and produces a powerful bass sound.

The LIVE SOUND mode on XB501G will allow you to experience your favorite artists as if you were seeing them live, with angled speakers and digital signal processing technology that will create an expanded service area. This three-dimensional sound experience will recreate realistic festival vibes.

“The XB501G is made to go where other speakers with the Google Assistant built-in cannot go,” said Yang Cheng, head of video and sound at Sony Electronics. “Bring the XB501G to your garage, the pool or backyard barbecue and have a great party experience, almost anywhere. The XB501G demonstrates Sony’s commitment to customer choice and innovation by delivering powerful, premium sound in a portable, water resistant and dustproof voice-activated speaker.”

The smaller, pocket-sized XB01 enhances every beat and gives any party a boost thanks to the EXTRA BASS sound. Its compact, rounded design, full range speaker unit on the front and passive radiator on the rear, gives tunes a deep and punchy sound. Despite its size, the speaker delivers big sound while on-the-go.

Party prepped
The durable XB501G is water resistant and dustproof with an IP65 rating so you can take it from the patio to the pool side, worry free1, while the XB01 has a water resistant design with an IPX5 rating, protecting it from sprays and spills. With up to 16 hours of battery life2, you can listen to the XB501G all day long. The XB501G can also charge a smartphone or other device with USB Type-C™ cable. The XB01 boasts up to six hours of battery life3, giving you interruption-free listening to your favorite albums.

Both speakers are designed to be carried. The XB501G has a handle while the XB01 has a handy strap in matching color, making it easy to pick up, carry or hang anywhere. The XB501G can be mounted on a tripod so your speaker can be elevated and the sound pressure can easily reach people whether sitting and standing.

Make any listening experience unforgettable with the XB501G speaker’s unique strobe, speaker and line lighting effects.

Uncompromised connectivity
The XB501G has the Google Assistant built in: it’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. You can use your voice to easily pick your favorite track, check the weather, or check the traffic, as well as control your other smart home devices.

Utilize the XB501G’s Wi-Fi capability to listen to various music services, or listen to the music stored on your smartphone by connecting it to the XB501G via Bluetooth® or NFC™4, and then use the Sony | Music Center app to control the speaker without the need for a Wi-Fi connection.

The XB01 has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling and Bluetooth connectivity for easy connection and streaming. It also features playback through the audio input as another way to enjoy your favorite playlists.
