With Dolby Atmos, Sony launches the SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker

The 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app, after being paired with the SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker and Sony Bravia XR TV, estimates the 3D shape of the user’s ear and optimises the arrangement of virtual Dolby Atmos speakers for them.

Sony SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker has been launched in the US with Dolby Atmos support. The latest model in Sony’s wireless neckband series is compatible with WLA-NS7 transmitter to offer Sony’s signature 360 Spatial Sound experience with Sony Bravia XR TVs.

Highlights

  • Sony has launched the SRS-NS7 wireless neckband speaker as the latest addition to its wearable speaker lineup. The company says that the new wireless neckband speaker comes as the world’s first of its kind with Dolby Atmos support.

  • The neckband is splash proof and said to deliver up to 12 hours of battery life.

In addition, the new wireless neckband speaker also promises Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound that can be controlled for optimum use through the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app.

The Dolby Atmos sound is delivered when the wearable speakers are paired with Sony’s Bravia XR television models.

Interestingly, this app can take a photo of the user’s ear and analyze their hearing characteristics by estimating the ear’s 3D shape.

Other than TVs, the Sony SRS-NS7 support 360 Reality Audio music when paired to smartphones. All these features tend to enable the Sony wireless neckband speaker to deliver an immersive audio experience to the user, with tailored sound coming from every direction.

Explaining about its design, Sony says that the SRS-.NS7 speaker comes in a neckband-like design with a fabric surface and a silicone neckband, thus making it easy to clean. Sony has also attempted to make it an environment-friendly product with less than 5 per cent use of plastics in its packaging. Since the speakers are wrapped around the wearer’s neck and face upwards, Sony says that they can be used even around others without disturbing them.

The audio quality is taken care of by Sony’s own audio technologies and an X-Balanced speaker unit for the optimum sound pressure and reduced distortion. There is also a passive radiator that increases low-frequency response for clearer bass sound.
