Apart from the new Xperia XZ2, Sony also announced the arrival of its newest wireless stereo headset, the Xperia Ear Duo – touted to offer a new and immersive listening experience.
The Xperia Ear Duo features a design that doesn’t block the ear canal, so you can hear both your music and the environment simultaneously. It can even intelligently adjust its volume to match your surroundings. 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.
Best of all, the Xperia Ear Duo features a carrying case that can also charge the headset up to three times. Its Fast charging feature also gives you an hour of listening in just 7 minutes of charging time.
The Xperia Ear Duo will be available in the Philippines sometime in May, and will only be available at the Sony Center in SM Megamall.
