Sony today introduces the SRS-XB13 – a compact and portable wireless speaker that expands sound all around.

Ready for anything

The XB13 is ready to bring big sound with you wherever you go. The compact speaker features a durable exterior and a multiway strap that can be hung anywhere, whether that be on your backpack or on your wrist, or even from a parasol when you’re out in the sun. The speaker can be hung upside down from a higher place to create a waterfall of music that engulfs you in the rhythm. The small size means that you can take the XB13 anywhere and you can still enjoy your favourite tunes.

Small speaker, big sound

Don’t be fooled by the XB13’s compact size, with EXTRA BASSTM and a Sound Diffusion Processor, this little speaker packs plenty of punch. You can enjoy powerful sound with EXTRA BASSTM which means a passive radiator works together with a full range speaker to enhance low-end tones, giving bass a boost, despite the compact size. Additionally, the Sound Diffusion Processor expands sound in any space, with its DSP technology.

If you want even bigger sound, connect two XB13 speakers wirelessly for stereo sound that reaches even further[1].

Epic stamina

The XB13 is a tough and durable speaker, making it the perfect adventure companion. The speaker is waterproof and dustproof, so you can enjoy your music at the pool, park or on a long hike thanks to its IP67 rating[2]. It has up to 16-hours battery life[3] with a battery indicator showing on your phone how much charge is left. This means that you can enjoy yourself whilst not having to wonder how much time you have left with your music.

Seamless connectivity

Need to make a call? The XB13 has you covered. Whether you’re at home or out and about, the built-in mic lets you enjoy hands-free calling through your speaker.

The XB13 has the latest Bluetooth® technology, which removes the need for wired connections and complex set up sequences so that you can enjoy your music right away. The XB13 features Google’s[4] Fast Pair technology so that you can connect compatible AndroidTM smartphones or tablets in seconds. Simply turn on your speaker and your nearby smartphone will prompt you to connect, so you can enjoy your music within seconds.

The XB13 features USB Type-C® charging for convenient connectivity and comes in 6 colours including black, blue, taupe, coral pink, powder blue and lemon yellow.

The SRS-XB13 model will be priced at approximately €60/£55 and available from April 2021.
