Sony SRS-XG300 Live Life Loud: Bluetooth 5.2 speaker, IP67 and portable

In addition to the Sony SRS-XE200 and Sony SRS-XE300, already presented in our columns, the Japanese manufacturer announces a third Live Life Lound Bluetooth speaker, the Sony SRS-XG300.

Bigger than its little sisters SRS-XE200/SRS-XE300, the SRS-XG300 Bluetooth 5.2 (LDAC compatible) speaker from Sony is designed with two 20 mm tweeter speakers, plus two 61 x midrange boomers 68 mm called X-Balanced Speaker. Their shape improves sound clarity and reduces distortion, according to their creator. They are supported by two passive radiators to establish the response in the low frequencies and a grille permeable to sound.

Sony SRS-XG300, IP67 certification and Party Connect mode

Certified IP67, it is water and dust resistant. And with its Party Connect mode, it is possible to associate the Sony SRS-XG300 with another speaker. It is also possible to combine two for a stereo configuration, always wireless, and up to 100 if you feel like adding sound to Versailles. Its battery offers an autonomy of 25 hours. Namely, fast charging (via USB-C) is also on the menu and 10 minutes of charging allows 70 minutes of additional listening. Note the Live Sound mode for extended reproduction (3D imitation) of the music.

Finally, a folding handle is included to take the XG300 everywhere with you. Everything is controllable via Sony Music Center apps.

Immediate availability in two colours: black or blue. Indicative price: 300 euros.
