40W of power for your music

Bluetoothstyle name="sup"®/styleconnectivity for easy music streaming
Based on radio waves, Bluetooth® technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won’t be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you’re free to stream all of your favourite content – including movies, pictures, and music – from your smartphone or tablet to a compatible device.
Mica Reinforced Cellular cone for undistorted audio
The perfect partner for today’sbass-driven music. Most speakers use paper cones that flex and deteriorate over time, leading to a more distorted sound. Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) fibre woofers are rigid, holding their shape even when moving at high pressure and speed, so you can drive the bass harder without compromising your audio quality.
Dual passive radiators to boost your bass
Hear resounding bass that makes you want to move. Dual passive radiators react to the movement of air through the speaker, artificially creating space within the cabinet. This space allows more air to flow through the speakers, enabling small units to deliver superior sound – especially for low-end frequencies.
S-Master digital amplifier for refined audio
Pure, unfiltered sound. By using a simplified signal pathand full digital processing, S-Master technology is able to amplify sound signals in digital without first having to convert them to analogue. This means signals maintain their purity right up to the final speaker output, so you can enjoy a more realistic and balanced sound experience.
ClearAudio+ for clarity and sharpness
Unique to Sony, ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimise audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound - whatever music you’re into.
Custom and pre-set equalisers for optimised sound
Get the perfect sound level for your favourite tracks with a custom and pre-set equaliser. Manually adjust levels to suit the song, save your favourite settings as a pre-set, or choose from existing pre-sets so you get the most from your listening. The choice is yours.
DSEE restores the detail to your digital music
Boost the quality of your compressed music files. When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high frequency elements that add detail and richness to your favourite tracks. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high quality sound that’s closer to the original CD recording.
One-touch listening to play instant music
NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex set-up sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device* to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth® settings. *See compatible devices
