This button can be turned on or off to suit the mood and soundtrack of the listener.
Each speaker and pair of headphones is engineered with the EXTRA BASS function in mind, crafted to ensure that listeners are able to hear and feel the exact amount of bass they crave. Whether you are pumping up the bass with friends, by yourself or on the go, there is a Sony EXTRA BASS audio gadget that is right for you.
