The Sony SRS XB23 is dustproof and water-resistant. A water-resistant device can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, if it is to be submerged in the water this is usually set to a given depth and for a specific time period.
Sony SRS XG300 too is dustproof and water-resistant, this makes both devices water-resistant and dust-resistant, thus preventing water and dust from entering the interior of the devices and damaging the interior components
Sony SRS XB23 has stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sony SRS XG300 and Sony SRS XB23 have stereo speakers
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Sony SRS XB23 driver unit is 46mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Sony SRS XG300 driver unit is 61mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Sony SRS XB23 by 15mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better sound.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. Drivers come in different sizes and modes, but generally, you'll find three types: tweeter driver, which handles the high-frequency treble range (above 2,000 Hz), and midrange driver: which handles the midrange frequencies (200 Hz to 2,000 Hz). Woofer driver: handles the low-frequency bass range (below 200 Hz).
Based on the frequencies they handle more drivers may result in better sound quality, Sony SRS XB23 has 2 only.
Sony SRS XG300 has 4 only
A passive radiator is a type of driver in speakers that can get extra power and resonance from a speaker system, usually used in smaller speaker systems. This radiator is called passive because it is not powered by electricity but by air pressure found in speaker cones.
The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep, resonant tones that would normally be produced by speakers in large boxes powered by AC.
The Sony SRS XG300 and Sony SRS XB23 both have a passive radiator
The audio output power of a device is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts Sony SRS XB23 has 20W, this is the amount of power the speakers can be loaded with "comfortably".
A higher audio output power results in louder, clearer sounds though this is not the sole factor determining the device's loudness. To better understand how loud any speaker can get, there are other aspects to look at such as sensitivity, sound pressure, etc.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. Sony SRS XB23's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Sony SRS XG300's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it. Sony SRS XB23's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Sony SRS XG300's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
Your speaker's battery life will reduce over time while in use, the battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. Sony SRS XB23's battery life is 12 hours
Sony SRS XG300's battery life is 25 hours. Each time you recharge your device, it gets a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your speaker, no longer plays for long like it used to.
