Enjoy deep, punchy sound wherever you like with your EXTRA BASS™2 speaker. Dual passive radiators work together with full-range speakers to enhance low-end tones, giving bass a boost.
Handy, super-portable design

X-Balanced Speaker Unit enhances sound quality and power
Developed by Sony, the X-Balanced Speaker Unit achieves high sound quality and powerful sound pressure for a richer, deeper, more rewarding listening experience.
How the X-Balanced Speaker Unit works
Unlike the circular diaphragm in a conventional speaker unit, the newly developed X-Balanced Speaker Unit in the XB23 features a non-circular diaphragm. This not only maximises the area of the speaker diaphragm, increasing sound pressure for more punchy bass—it also reduces driver excursion while maintaining the same sound pressure, resulting in less distortion. Meanwhile, the unit's off-centre design and optimised weight balance help to enhance clarity and widen the sound stage.
Side passive radiators
The layout of the side passive radiators has been optimised to reproduce clear bass sound.
Mica Reinforced Cellular speaker cone and dust cap
The rigid and lightweight Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) speaker cone and dust cap contribute to the sound quality.
Thanks to the IP67 rating3, you can take your speaker to the beach, the forest, the desert, or wherever you like—the SRS-XB23 will keep on playing, no matter how dusty the surface.
Totally washable and waterproof
With an IP67 rating3, your speaker is waterproof and salt-water-resistant—so you've no worries using it by the sea or the pool—and there's no problem washing it either4.
Built to last
The SRS-XB23 has undergone extensive shock testing to make sure it can withstand the inevitable knocks, bumps and scrapes that come with everyday use. Even if you drop it, the SRS-XB23 will keep on working.
