CES 2019: Sony Launches New Portable and Outdoor Speakers

The ongoing CES 2019 tech convention sees Sony launch the SRS-XB12, SRS-XB22, and SRS-XB32 portable wireless speakers. The company has also established the rather distinctive Sony GTK-PG10 outdoor celebration speaker, which includes cup holders onto a top panel that doubles up as a table, presumably to keep your beverages and other things on.

The SRS-XB assortment of speakers sees three new additions, which can be priced at different levels based on the version number. While India costs or availability haven’t been shown yet, US pricing of the speakers is out.

The Sony speakers comprise wireless connectivity over Bluetooth to match with most important smartphones and source apparatus, along with mild impacts on the XB-22 and XB-32 speakers. All 3 speakers also feature IP67 ratings for water and dust resistance, with maintained battery life going up to 24 hours to the lightest version. Charging is via USB ports on the speakers, even whilst NFC aids quicker pairing over the XB-22 and XB-32 versions.

Also launched is your Sony GTK-PG10 party speaker, which has been touted as a speaker for celebration use whether outside or inside. It sports a fold-out table that includes integrated cup holders and a platform to keep things. Additional opening up the top panels permit the tweeters to fire upwards, thereby enabling sound to disperse far better. Interestingly, the Sony GTK-PG10 speaker may also be mounted onto a tripod for elevation.
