Sony has released these days the new Sony SRS-X33. Probably, customers will not find any big differences between this new model and the previous one, Sony SRS-X3 Bluetooth wireless speaker. Even if in pictures they have the same beautiful minimalist rectangular design, Sony SRS-X33 comes with some new and interesting features.
To be mentioned that this model, like the previous version, comes in a variety of colors. However, when these devices are put side by side, Sony SRS-X33 is way smaller and weights 1.56, compared with 1,75 of the previous model.
Moreover, compared with the SRS-X3, this new model comes with a better battery life, lasting approximately 12 hours. The previous model, the SRS-X3, had a battery life that went up to approximately 7 hours. This means that Sony has made a significant upgrade on this aspect. Sony SRS-X33 comes at the price of 150 dollars.
As a hint, customers will have the opportunity to buy it at a better price if they will opt for online shopping. Even if it’s lighter than the previous version, Sony SRS-X33 still feels sturdy and features two 10-wat drivers and dual passive bass radiators. It also features a straightforward design that is elegant and the speaker has a nice and smooth finish.
When it comes to features, Sony SRS-X33 comes with everything you need, but sadly it doesn’t have the most attractive feature at the moment: waterproofing. Another lack in features is the ability to charge up other USB devices. However, this new speaker comes with a standard Bluetooth range of approximately 30 feet and offers NFC tap-to-pair technology for tablets and smartphones.
Moreover, this Bluetooth speaker has a built-in speakerphone for taking cell-phone calls. It must be said that this feature works pretty well. To be mentioned that it also gets support for Sony’s LDAC codec, which is similar with the AptX. This means that the Bluetooth audio streaming will have a better sound.
Sony SRS-X33 comes with a charger included in the package. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a protective carrying case. As for sound, Sony’s engineers hit the jackpot, because this Bluetooth speaker sounds pretty good and has an improved bass performance at higher volumes, compared with the previous Sony SRS-X3.
