It’s my party: Sony lights up portable audio with three stylish new Bluetooth speakers

Sony SRS-XG300 portable speaker entertains a group of young people having a party night

Upgrade your portable music system for the Summer season with one of a trio of stylish new Bluetooth speakers from Sony. Ideal for patios, BBQs and beach parties, the models are available in a variety of on-trend colourways and are IP67 rated, making them splash and dust resistant. 

Expect big booming bass and wide sound as standard. The SRS-XG300, SRS-XE300 and SRS-XE200 all employ Sony’s X-Balanced Speaker Unit and Dual Passive Radiators. The XG300 in particular boasts ‘club-like bass’ and improved high frequency audio, courtesy of its Mega Bass and Live Sound modes. This top of the line wireless model also LED lighting that synchronises to the sound of music.

Taking inspiration from pro sound audio systems, the SRS-XE300 and SRS-XE200 also have a Line-Shape Diffuser said to distribute sound wide and even.

The big Sony SRS-XG300 comes with a retractable handle, while the lighter SRS-XE200 has an integrated carry handle. All three come with Party Connect, so you can combine up to 100 models for a wall of sound – more useful, two can be paired for stereo.

Battery life is impressive. Fully juiced, the XG300 offers 25-hours of playtime, the SRS-XE300 24-hours and the SRS-XE200 16-hours. All three speakers support Quick charging; 10 minutes of top up time will translate to 70-minutes of play. 

Both the SRS-XE300 and SRS-XE200 have also benefited from extensive shock testing, so there’s no need to fret over every drop and knock.

The £259 SRS-XG300 is available in light grey and black, while the £169 SRS-XE300 is available in light grey, black and blue. The £139 SRS-XE200 adds an orange finish to the mix.
