Sony at the Mobile World Congress 2018 has presented the new generation of wireless headsets called Xperia Ear Duo, initially conceived as a concept that was first displayed around a year ago in Barcelona, and has now become a commercial product in all respects.
The Sony Xperia Ear Duo comes with noise-canceling and Google Assistant and Siri integration. Sony Dual Listening technology combines music that you are listening to environmental sounds for the richer sound experience. It can send audio notifications about your calendar, news headlines, and other topics to the headset.
The Sony Xperia Ear Duo wireless headphones also feature an intelligent “Daily Assist” function recognizes the time, location and activities to offer relevant information throughout the day. The Spatial Acoustic Conductor, developed by the Sony Future Lab Program, allows the sound generated behind the ear by the unit´s driver to be transmitted directly to the ear.
A decidedly new approach being in-ear headphones, especially designed ring supporter surrounds the ear canal so the music can blend seamlessly with sounds from your environment. Thanks to Sony’s Clear Phase audio technology, the volume intelligently adjusts based on your surroundings and background noise and eliminates sound dispersion for crystal clear listening.
The Xperia Ear Duo is also the first wireless headphones of the manufacturer equipped with integrated smart functions. The Daily Assist utility, supported by a chip and a multi-sensor platform, provides appointment schedules or news headlines based on location, while answering calls or managing your music library will become even easier, thanks to the support of head gestures (for example nodding or shaking head), as well as access to Voice assistants such as Google Assistant or Siri.
New Sony wireless headphones made of steel and soft rubber. The semi-circle support is available in three different sizes and, thanks to the IPX2 certification, it is resistant to water splashes. According to the manufacturer, Xperia Ear Duo can guarantee up to four hours of battery life with a single charge, as well as being able to use the carry case to charge it.
