Live Mode it can be activated by pressing the live button on top of the speaker and speaker will produce a 3D audio effect. We recommend you to don’t use it because it is power consuming and also sounds bit dreadful.
Lighting effects love it or hate it, there are so many lights which are on sync with the music playing through speakers. It will be fun during the party nights but if you want to enjoy music they become little disturbing. You can also manage how the lights will glow with the Sony Music Centre app.
When you play audio through the speakers it will produce punchy bass and it doesn’t overshadow the mids and vocals. One thing that impresses bass lovers is that punch bass output from the Sony SRS-XB41. In some tracks, midrange is dominated by the bass.
