One thing I personally love is innovation and one company that gets the word right is Sony. Sony unveiled their new Sony Xperia Ear Duo, a reimagined wireless headset. It’s now available in the market.

Sony Xperia Ear Duo

The Xperia Duo was a concept that became a reality and it’s now here in the market. It features a Dual Listening Technology. What that means is that you can listen to your favorite tunes, receive notification and also listen to the environmental sound or conversation.

Charging Case

It’s constructed with durable Stainless Steel and soft rubber. It has been designed in a way that it doesn’t interfere with people who wears glasses. The Open ring comes in 3 different size and thanks to the IPX2, splashproof certification – you can just wear it all day. The Xperia Ear Duo has 4 hours of listening on a single charge and the case which is used to store them doubles as a charger – where just 7 minutes of charging gives you one hour of listening experience.

The Technology behind Xperia Ear Duo

The technology behind the Xperia Ear is fascinating. Sony developed an in-house technology called the Spacial Acoustic Conductor. What this does is that it generates the sound behind the ear by the unit’s driver and then transmits directly into the ear. There’s a ring supporter that surrounds the ear canal – making the music blend in with the sound outside. With the help of Sony’s Clear Phase – the headphone will adjust the volume according to the environment a person is in – thus eliminating sound dispersion.

Not just that, the Xperia Ear Duo features an ultra-low power consuming chip – CXD5602 – that powers up the feature – Daily Assist. This particular feature recognizes time, location and activities and sends you the essential information. It also has voice control and a cooler way to interact – that is by head gestures. The sensor allows you to answer/decline calls with shaking or nodding or skip songs by shaking your head left and right.

Pricing and Availability

The Sony Xperia Ear Duo is now available at selected Sony outlet for RM 1,199. It comes in two different colors – Sleek Black and Gold Styles.  The Companion App is available on both Android and iOS.

This is a product that I was really looking forward to and it’s now here. I really can’t wait to try it out and give my final verdict on it, if I get my hands on one. 😊 So, stay tuned for that.
