Powerful Party Sound

Party anywhere 

The SRS-XV500 is a speaker that will never let you down due to its long battery life. After being fully charged, the SRS-XV500 will offer up to 25 hours1 of playback. Plus, quick charging of 10 minutes lasts for up to 2.5 hoursof playing time. With the Battery Care Function you never have to worry about overcharging your speaker, making it more dependable for longer.

The SRS-XV500 has an IPX4 water resistant2 rating, so you can use it outside with confidence, even if a few raindrops fall. ​

The SRS-XV500 was built with portability in mind. The built in handle makes for easy transportation of the speaker. ​ ​ ​

Plus, the SRS-XV500 adapts to any environment due its flexibility of being positioned either vertical or horizontal.

Fun and entertainment features

The fun does not stop there as you can belt out your favourite songs with the karaoke functionality. To sing your favourite song, simply plug in a karaoke mic and press play. The Echo and Key Control on the rear panel of the unit let you adjust sound to your preference. A second input means you can duet with a friend on a second mic or even plug in a guitar to ramp things up even further. Both inputs have individual mixing.

In addition to delivering musically, the SRS-XV500 also helps create a party atmosphere thanks to its ambient light feature. Whether you want to use the speaker for daily use or for party use, you can customise the illumination by the Fiestable mobile app.

With Sony | Music Center, you can select playlists, change lighting patterns and sound modes all from the dance floor. Fiestable allows you to access fun features to help create the ultimate party atmosphere, such as making a playlist, karaoke functions including Voice Changer and Echo, plus DJ control to add sound effects.
