Google Assistant Built-In
- When paired with a Bluetooth-compatible device, you can use the XB501G to access the Google Assistant just like you would on a smartphone. Ask it questions, have it play you back music file or access streaming services, or update you on the ball game.
- Sony's LIVE SOUND button lets you activate a feature that is meant to utilize the built-in speakers to provide you with a three-dimensional listening experience. Combining the angled speaker placement with DSP technology is designed to send your music to fill a wider area.
Party All Night
- The XB501G's built-in rechargeable battery can store enough juice to run for up to 16 hours per charge.
Portable & Versatile Design
- This Bluetooth speaker is engineered to be taken, and placed, wherever you need it. A built-in handle makes it easy to carry it around, and the built-in tripod mount gives you additional options for placing it in the best spot for everyone to enjoy the music.
Easier Pairing with NFC
- NFC technology is built into the XB501G and it's designed to make Bluetooth device pairing easier. For example, instead of tapping around menus, simple tap your phone onto the speaker.
Supports Sony Music Center
- The speaker is designed to work with the Sony Music Center app, which lets you select your favorite playlists, cue the next song, or change the lighting patterns and sound modes of the XB501G.
USB Charging & Power Bank
- The speaker's built-in battery can be recharged with an (optional) USB Type-C cable or with the included AC adapter. The speaker can also double as a power bank when fully charged. Simply plug in your drained mobile device into the USB port and let the XB501G give it a recharge.
- With support for Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n), you can use the XB501G to access your favorite web-based streaming services and control the playlist from your smartphone.
