The SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker, as well as the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter, which works with select Sony headphones to give the same immersive personal cinema sound experience as the SRS-NS7, has been released by Sony.

Sony SRS-NS7

The SRS-NS7 is the world’s first Dolby Atmos compatible wireless neckband speaker, and it comes with Sony’s BRAVIA XR models. It delivers Sony’s unique 360 Spatial Sound experience, which provides a fully optimised movie experience, with the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer programme.

The new neckband wireless speakers interact with the included wireless transmitter and BRAVIA XR TVs to create the ideal setup of replicated Dolby Atmos speakers all around you, immersing you in the action as if you were there.

Pair the SRS-NS7 with the supplied wireless transmitter through Bluetooth after connecting it to the TV via optical and USB cords. With the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer smartphone app, take photographs of your ears, analyse your unique hearing characteristics, and combine these qualities into your SRS-NS7 audio experience.

In addition to Dolby Atmos content on your TV, the SRS-NS7 also delivers 360 Reality Audio when paired with a smartphone, letting you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a performance. Using compatible music services such as Deezer, nugs.net, and TIDAL on your smartphone, you can immerse yourself in music all around you.

The SRS-NS7 works with a wide range of devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones, as well as BRAVIA XR televisions. This portable wireless neckband speaker allows you to listen to your favourite music in 2-channel stereo even on palm-sized smartphones.

The speakers are equipped with an X-Balanced Speaker Unit, which provides the optimum speaker size in a compact container while also boosting sound pressure and minimising distortion for crystal clear music and vocals.

The upward-facing speaker, on the other hand, focuses clear sound directly at you without causing any inconvenience to others. The passive radiator also improves low-frequency response for a precise bass sound that delivers powerful music hits and deep rhythms.

The audio latency for the SRS-NS7 is minimised when utilising the integrated wireless transmitter with BRAVIA XR TVs, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in Dolby Atmos movies with precisely synchronised sound and picture. Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound experience on BRAVIA XR TVs will be accessible on certain Sony headphones with the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter.

The SRS-NS7 enables hours of pleasant watching of your favourite movies, TV shows, or concerts thanks to its flexible and ergonomic design that fits snugly around your neck. The adjustable rear band on the speaker helps you to find the perfect fit for maximum comfort while listening to music.

The battery life of the SRS-NS7 is up to 12 hours on low volume and up to 5 hours on high volume. A 10-minute rapid charge with a USB Type-C connection will give you an extra 60 minutes of playing if you run out of energy. It also includes a Multipoint Connection feature that allows you to connect two devices at the same time. With an IPX4 rating, the speakers are also splash-proof.

Beginning in January 2022, the SRS-NS7 with a suggested retail price of RM1,249 and the WLA-NS7 with a suggested retail price of RM269 will be available in Malaysia. For a comprehensive list of specifications and information, go to the official website.
