Sony has unveiled their newest addition to their wearable speaker lineup called the SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker. It features their X-Balanced Speaker unit, support for 360 Reality Audio, Dolby Atmos and more. Along with it, Sony also announced the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter that compliments the SRS-NS7 neckband speaker.
As mentioned above, the SRS-NS7 wireless neckband supports Dolby Atmos when paired with Sony’s BRAVIA XR television models, in addition to support for Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound technology and 360 Reality Audio technology. The speaker’s sound signature can also be personalized with the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app, which can capture an image of the user’s ear and analyze their hearing characteristics for a better audio experience.
The speakers come with their X-Balanced Speaker Unit, which offers crystal clear acoustics and powerful sound pressure. It has upward firing speakers that deliver crisp sound directly to the user without disturbing others, along with a passive radiator for clearer low frequency response.
Other features include Multipoint Connection, IPX4 splash-proof design, and a battery life that is rated at up to 12 hours of power and up to 5 hours at maximum volume. It also supports quick charging – a 10-minute quick charge provides up to 60 minutes of extra play time.
Complimenting the SRS-NS7, Sony unveiled the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter that will enable Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound experience on BRAVIA XR TVs.
The SRS-NS7 is priced at $299.99 (Approx. Rs. 22,430), while the WLA-NS7 has a price of $59.99 (Approx. Rs. 4,485), and both are available for pre-order at Sony.com in the U.S.
