Sony aims to reignite the fire in its audio line-up with its new range of personal audio products, bringing you stylish headphones and a Walkman with a distinct finish in a variety of colours to match your own style. Revel in your music like never before and listen to your favourite tunes closer to the true sound artists originally intended.
The “h.ear1” series comes in 3 different variants, “h.ear on1” headband-type headphones, “h.ear in NC1” Noise Cancelling (NC) in-ear headphones, “h.ear in1” in-ear headphones. Sony’s sleek h.ear1 series pairs well with their Walkman range and are available in deep shades ranging from viridian blue, cinnabar red, charcoal black, lime yellow and bordeaux pink for every type of personality.
Sony’s “h.ear on” headband-type headphones oozes style combined with a comfortable fit, sporting a 40mm HD driver unit that reproduces sounds up to 60kHz, and lightweight CCAW voice coils yielding high-linearity responses in high-pitched sounds. Together with titanium-coated diaphragms that minimise unwanted vibrations, Sony aims to provide the ultimate listening experience. It comes securely packed in a handy carrying pouch and a foldable mechanism with cross-talk reducing cables, so you’re always ready to be on-the-go.
Next in line is the “h.ear in NC” which is a pair of noise-cancelling in-ear headphones focused on a functional design and iconic aesthetics. Using Sony’s newly developed compact 9mm high sensitivity driver unit, this slim and compact in-ear headphone can reproduce frequencies up to 40kHz. To ensure a fully immersive audio experience, the in-ear headphones feature a battery-powered, state of the art dual noise sensor technology and Automatic AI Noise Cancelling to filter out unwanted noise for up to 16 hours even in the noisiest of places. It is easily rechargeable via microUSB should the battery run out.
The third product in the “h.ear” series is the “h.ear in” headphones, designed with an aluminium housing which suppresses vibrations and reproduces high quality sounds. The “h.ear in” in-ear headphones houses a 9mm high sensitivity driver unit that supports High-Resolution Audio, together with Beat Response Control that helps improve the transient characteristics in the bass and delivers rhythm accurately, which combined with the acoustic port on the hosing works to produce a more solid bass range and optimised diaphragm movements. Similar to both the “h.ear on” headphones, the “h.ear in” in-ear headphones come with a 4-wire configuration and a separated ground cross-talk reducing cable, for expanded sound and tight bass.
