SONY's EXTRA BASS product line, also known as XB speakers, has been creating a brand for Bass Head followers. And the SONY SRS-XB32 that I am about to show you below will once again confirm its position in the mid-range audio equipment market.
In terms of design, the Sony SRS-XB32's appearance has gained innovation when compared to its predecessor XB31. Although the overall shape has not changed much with its slender, long and relatively sturdy frame, the automaker has changed the composition of the product's shell.
If on XB31, SONY used the general layer of a cover layer of the diaphragm to cover the entire speaker body, in this version of XB32 this time, the company has re-used the perfect way from the first XB3 generation session. I personally prefer this traditional design of XB32, which shows the separation in each part and much more favorable.
Besides the use of plastic materials to complete the frame for the speakers, the company also uses a soft layer of silicon covering the surface of the speaker also helps to feel the grip on the hand is comfortable, firm and has adhesion the best. In addition, the membrane covering layer also has very good finishing quality.
Especially, in this version, SONY also had a slight change in the LED lighting for products. The RGB LED solution running along the loudspeaker has been joined together to form a 3-pointed star on the side, thereby helping the part to create the most points for the two sides with a monotonous part of the speaker.
In addition, SONY has also clearly demonstrated its brand identity by placing a large logo, prominently engraved on the bottom edge of XB32. The remaining places where the connection ports are located as well as the position of the function keys are exactly the same as XB31. If the buttons on the top edge have a relatively comfortable press feeling, the function keys are hidden in the back cover with a small size and a bit difficult to press.
There is one thing I really like on the XB32 which is the USB output 5V port with the charging function for peripheral devices. As a result, this speaker will become a large backup battery charger for your device, a very useful feature but not all products are available. Of course, this speaker is still equipped with IP67 water resistance, which is also the reason that the back cover is made very thick and really solid.
Software and features
The unfortunate point is that the Sony XB32 still uses Bluetooth 4.2 technology, while most of the newly released audio devices have been upgraded to Bluetooth 5.0 with longer range. However, the connectivity of this XB32 is still very good, NFC technology also allows speakers to connect to many different sources without spending too much time. Moreover, if you want better sound quality, users can directly connect the source with 3.5mm audio port speaker.
Sony offers its users two separate software to manage XB32, including Music Center and Fiestable. Personally, I do not like the fact that SONY catches users to use 2 software to customize the speaker, it is quite inconvenient and these software also have less intuitive interface.
But anyway, it's just a software problem and the manufacturer can completely improve the updates. Besides, both of these software are very good support for your custom speaker tasks.
In particular, Music Center is the place to manage connections, audio sources, speaker settings, etc. This application also supports users to connect multiple separate speakers to reproduce multi-dimensional stereo sound and bring experience more quality sound.
And Fiestable is a place where you can adjust the lighting modes and choose colors to display. In particular, this application brings a great feature for XB32 through shaking the user's phone.
Specifically, you can rotate the phone to increase or decrease the volume, shake to switch tracks and flip the phone to turn off or open music. This is really an interesting feature and it has given me a new (cooler) experience to adjust the music instead of making a curse like tradition.
Sound quality and battery life
More detailed in terms of specifications, Sony SRS-XB32 uses 48mm full-range speaker membrane, frequency transmission 20 Hz – 20,000 Hz on 2.4 GHz band and a passive vibrating membrane with the aim of ensuring bass for product. And in terms of specs, which are not much different from their predecessors, XB31, it can be said that XB32 is an improvement in appearance.
However, this is not necessarily a disadvantage of XB32, but it is just proof that "if you have done something very well then it is not necessary to change it." That means the XB32 will possess the advantages of the Extra Bass line with its vibrant sound quality inside a compact body.
Experiencing the reality of a sub-bass song as strong as Sweet but Psycho, this speaker shows me very satisfied, the bass emitted is solid, thick, high and enough to make Auditory vibration of the listener. In addition, users can increase or decrease the bass through the back key to suit the softer genres.
Besides, the speaker's treble is still at acceptable levels, the instrument is expressed relatively clearly. The brightness, though not equal to the treble-head speakers, is generally sufficient and shows the content of the music. Similarly, the singer's voice is less "dense and buzzing" and still ensures warmth in necessary passages, although the mid-range has not been as clear as other neutral speakers but for an Extra Bass speaker, what XB32 can do is still commendable.
In particular, there is one point I really like on Sony XB32 is Party Booster feature, you just need to tap on the speaker to create other sounds such as scratching, drum, bass drum and ringing sound. Clapping force then adjusts the volume, patting the soft and soft sound, patting loudly. Is this really a great feature for partying?
Battery life is also a plus for Sony XB32 when it comes to music playback for up to 12 hours with Extra Bass and LED. If you turn it off, the "screaming" time of the speaker can be up to nearly 24 hours.
As a high quality SONY speaker, XB32 has done a great job of an Extra Bass product and gives users a vibrant music experience. If you are a fan of bass-head, love speakers that can stand out for your personality and especially a SONY Fan, this speaker is the product for you.
