Sony has been pushing its audio range over the past few years across price points and user preferences. The company’s summer lineup for 2018 has a similar mix that will make a lot of people happy. The SRS-XB41 is part of this range and caters to those who would like take their music wherever they go.

The Sony SRS-XB41 is the party animals’ dream speaker. It is also a speaker that is waterproof, rustproof and dust proof. So this goes where you go, or where your party goes. It has a fabric finish prevents dust from accumulating on the body, which is a big help for those who live in the dust bowl of Delhi.

There are many features that help the SRS-XB41 become the soul of any party. To start with, it is full of lights — it comes with a line light, speaker lights and flashing strobe — and can really jazz up a party even when on mute. The lights can be controlled using the Sony Music Centre app, but I prefer to let it do whatever it thinks is best. It’s fun on its own.

The other interesting aspect is the Party Booster. The SRS-XB41 can easily be held in your hand and if you hold it right with some extra force it will start sounding different. Give it a tap or a slap and it will sound different again. Sony tries to recreate a DJ effect by recreating the experience of a scratching with these taps and slaps. Fun, but I’d rather enjoy my music.

There is also the live mode. This gives the music a holographic effect which again is great for parties. I got the feeling that it starts giving a different effect when you keep it close to the wall or in the middle of the room. Overall, the music experience is good. Yes, it has a bit of extra bass as you would expect from a Sony, but I loved listening to all my types of music on this. In fact, this perfect for those who like vocal-heavy music — from a Jagjit Singh to a Leonard Cohen. Also, the extra bass just makes Bollywood numbers sound better. In fact, this can actually help replace those horrible DJs at medium-size Indian weddings — not the big fat ones.

The battery can easily last about six hours of partying and we don’t recommend that you give any more than that on a given day. The SRS-XB41 is priced aptly and could find a lot of buyers, especially those planning their next beach party in the rain in Goa.
