CES 2019: Sony Launches New Portable and Outdoor Speakers

CES 2019 saw Sony launch numerous portable and outdoor speakers.

Highlights
  • Sony has launched the SRS-XB12, XB22 and XB32 speakers at CES 2019
  • Sony also launched the PG10 outdoor party speaker at CES
  • The portable speakers come with IP67 dust and water resistance

Japanese electronics giant Sony continues to actively take on the portable speaker space, and has launched a range of new products in the SRS-series and outdoor-focused PG range. The ongoing CES 2019 tech convention sees Sony launch the SRS-XB12, SRS-XB22, and SRS-XB32 portable wireless speakers. The company has also launched the rather unique Sony GTK-PG10 outdoor party speaker, which comes with cup holders on a top panel that doubles up as a table, presumably to keep your drinks and other things on.

The SRS-XB range of speakers sees three new additions, which are priced at different levels depending on the model number. While India prices or availability haven't been revealed yet, US pricing of the speakers is out. The entry-level SRS-XB12 sports a single driver design and is priced at $60 (approximately Rs. 4,200), the mid-range SRS-XB22 sports a dual-driver setup and is priced at $100 (approximately Rs. 7,000) and the top-of-the-line SRS-XB32 also sports a dual driver design with 48mm satellite speakers, priced at $150 (approximately Rs. 10,500). A top of the range Sony SRS-XB72 has also been announced, priced at $350 (approximately Rs. 24,500).

The Sony speakers feature wireless connectivity over Bluetooth to pair with most major smartphones and source devices, along with light effects on the XB-22 and XB-32 speakers. All three speakers also feature IP67 ratings for dust and water resistance, with claimed battery life going up to 24 hours on the top-end variant. Charging is via USB ports on the speakers, while NFC aids faster pairing on the XB-22 and XB-32 models.

Also launched is the Sony GTK-PG10 party speaker, which is being touted as a speaker for party use whether outdoors or indoors. It features a fold-out table which comes with integrated cup holders and a platform to keep things. Furthermore, opening up the top panels allow the tweeters to fire upwards, thereby allowing sound to spread better. Interestingly, the Sony GTK-PG10 speaker can also be mounted on a tripod for elevation.
