 Sony recently launched in India the Sony SRS-XG500 


party speaker[/url]. Though it reminded me of the old boombox music 

players, it is by no means a retro one but a modern party speaker 

with a powerful output and wide connectivity options. Although 

bulky, the SRS-XG500 is a moveable party speaker that is easy to 

manage irrespective where you throw a party. Priced at Rs 32,999, 

the speaker seems to be on the expensive side. Is it? Let’s find 



    Build and design


    Sony SRS-XG500 party speaker

    The cylindrical body gives the speaker a distinct look while the 

fabric covering brings minimalism. The big handle is sturdy enough 

for us to carry it anywhere. On the front, there are buttons for 

power, Bluetooth, volume, play/pause, and a bass boost button. A 

rubber lid at the back covers power and USB ports and a connector 

for plugging in a guitar. The two large rubber feet keep the speaker 

stable when the bass comes in. The sides have LED lights that change 

colour when you play music and it looks absolutely beautiful under 

dim or low light. The Sony SRS-XG500 weighs nearly 5 kg but quality 

material is used so weight isn't much of a factor to point out.


    The audio quality of the Sony SRS-XG500 is at par with most of 

the small-sized trolley-style

[/url] although it has its own limitations considering it is a 

portable speaker. That said, the sound is loud and bassy, but at the 

same time, highly balanced so it will be music for your ears.


    For bass lovers, there is a bass boost feature but honestly, the 

default sound is much better because of the balance. The feature to 

connect a guitar adds to its credentials as a party speaker. You can 

also connect the SRS-XG500 with other speakers using Party Connect. 

There are slight tweaks you can do with the sound and light settings 

using the Sony Music Centre app. I had to play with the equalizer as 

the default sound at times doesn't go well with all genres of 



    Overall, the experience was fine as I played songs on full 

volume on the terrace.


    The Sony SRS-XG500 offers up to 30 hours of playtime on a full 

charge. The battery fares well in real-life scenarios and the backup 

is close to that Sony claims. The SRS-XG500 is water and dustproof 

with the IP66 rating, so a slight rain or splash of water and 

everyday dust won't harm the speaker.


    The Sony SRS-XG500 is a speaker with loud and enthralling audio 

out. Although bulky, it can be taken anywhere - from terrace to park 

for an enhanced musical experience. The SRS-XG500 brings all the 

features a modern party speaker should have, not to forget about 

Sony's signature sound that lights up the party, but at Rs 

32,999, it's quite expensive and people may prefer cheaper 

alternatives that JBL and other brands offer.


    Throwing a party anytime soon or planning to attend one? 

Conventionally, partygoers used to have a big music system with 

bulky speakers to ensure everyone is able to enjoy the melody. 

Thanks to technology upgrades, today, you can do so by carrying a

decade, the trend of party speakers has seen a big spike.
