Sony SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker now official
Sony Electronics Inc. has announced the new SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker, the latest addition to its wearable speaker lineup, along with the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter.
The SRS-NS7 is dubbed by Sony as the world’s first wireless neckband speaker that delivers Dolby Atmos when paired with Sony’s BRAVIA XR television models. The SRS-NS7 has a fabric surface and a silicone neckband and sports IPX4 splash-resistant design.
It offers Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound that can be optimized through the Spatial Sound Personalizer app. When the SRS-NS7 is paired via Bluetooth with the supplied wireless transmitter and connected to a BRAVIA XR TV, the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app can take a photo of the user’s ear and analyze their hearing characteristics by estimating the ear’s 3D shape, according to Sony.
In addition, SRS-NS7 users can also experience 360 Reality Audio music when using their smartphone. Sony mentioned that 360 Reality Audio immerses users in music, and is available when using compatible music services like Deezer, nugs.net, and TIDAL.
It also features Multipoint Connection, which enables users to connect two devices at the same time. Moreover, Sony claims that the SRS-NS7 has up to 12 hours of power and up to 5 hours at maximum volume.
The Sony SRS-NS7 is priced at USD 299.99, while the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter is priced at USD 59.99. There’s no word about their local pricing and availability.
