As one of the biggest names in consumer technology, Sony’s Black Friday deals will likely appeal to you – particularly if you’re on the hunt for a boxfresh Bluetooth speaker.
Amazon has slashed the price of a slew of Sony party speakers, including the waterproof, wireless Extra Bass models with a sonic presentation that’s supposedly suited to al fresco gatherings.
The waterproof SRS-XB41, for example, has dropped from £149 to £99, meaning you can pocket £50 saving. It features dual 58mm drivers and light-up panels that can be customised to flash to the beat of the music via Sony’s Fiestable app. Battery life is a healthy 24 hours and it can charge your phone.
If you want to add a bit more oopmh to proceedings, the hefty (7kg) Sony GTK-XB5B might be just the ticket. It features Extra Bass, ‘club-like’ strobe lighting effects and wireless streaming over Bluetooth. More pertinently, the Black Friday sale price is £112.49 (that’s practically half the original £220 RRP).
If you’re on a tighter budget, Amazon has slashed the prices of a clutch of other funky Extra Bass speakers. You can save almost 20% off the SRS-XB32, which has dropped from £108 to £87.20, or 30% off the SRS-XB31, which drops from £99 to £68.
While the funky features might not be everyone’s cup of tea, the deals, which are available now, are pretty eye-catching. Especially if you’re planning a Christmas knees-up. Click the links below to start shopping…
