Sony Bring Dolby Atmos To The Neckband Speaker Market
Not only is the Sony SRS-NS7 the first neckband speaker to sport Dolby Atmos, it can combine with the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter (below) and Bravia XR television models to transmit Dolby Atmos to the speaker.
Plus, use the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app to take pictures of your ears to create an HRTF map of them, feed that back to the system, and you’ll have Atmos customised to your ear and head shape.
Team it with any Bluetooth device, and the microphone means you can also make calls using it. It can also connect to two devices at the same time.
For the guts, there’s a single active driver and one passive radiator on each side. These are angled up for precise sound positioning.
The neckband is flexible and it’s IPX4 splash resistant. You’ll get 12 hours use on a full charge, while a 10-minute boost will sort you out with an hour of battery life.
