This is all thanks to a spatial acoustic conductor, developed in-house by Sony’s R & D, which allows the sound to be transmitted directly in the ear.

The device is also compatible with voice assistants such as Siri and Google, and you can have always-on updates depending on thanks to its Daily Assist feature which uses multiple sensors to know where you are and what you’re doing.
