Sony unveils Xperia Ear Duo wireless ear buds supporting Siri and Google Assistant

Sony today announced new wireless earbuds, dubbed Xperia Ear Duo, an upgraded version of the company’s Xperia Ear concept and offering new audio technology in tandem with Siri compatibility.

Functionally, the Xperia Ear Duo is almost completely hands-free. Its voice recognition capabilities allow you to to send messages or to turn on your music by simply speaking aloud.

From there, four microphones will isolate your voice from the surrounding noise so you can utilize virtual assistants such as Google Assistant or Siri.

You can also use the device’s Daily Assist feature to switch between music, calls, podcasts, news, and whatever else you’re into without ever needing to touch a single button.

According to Xperia The Spatial Acoustic Conductor, developed by the company’s in-house technology incubator Future Lab Program, allows the sound generated behind the ear by the unit´s driver to be transmitted directly into the ear.

The specially designed ring supporter surrounds the ear canal so your music can blend seamlessly with sounds from your environment.

The Xperia Ear Duo is priced at $279.99 and comes in metallic black and metallic gold color options. Each set also comes with its own charging case for a quick power boost

The compact case comes with enough battery to charge the headset up to three times when you’re on the go and Sony claim fast charge gives you one hour of listening for just 7 minutes of charging.

The Xperia Ear Duo will officially be released May 31, 2018.
