(ASIA PACIFIC, 5 October 2021) – Sony has today announced a new wireless neckband speaker, the SRS-NS7, for enjoying an immersive personal cinema sound experience, along with the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter[ii] – which works with selected Sony headphones to realise the same experience as with SRS-NS7.
Lose yourself in your favourite movie or song
The SRS-NS7 is the world’s first Dolby Atmos® compatible wireless neckband speaker with Sony’s BRAVIA XR1 models. It delivers Sony’s unique 360 Spatial Sound experience that provides a perfectly optimised cinematic experience with the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app.
The SRS-NS7 works with the supplied wireless transmitter, and BRAVIA XR TVs1, to create the ideal arrangement of virtual Dolby Atmos® speakers around you[iii] – immersing you in the scene as if you were there in the action. To use it, connect the supplied wireless transmitter to the TV with an optical cable and USB cable, then pair the SRS-NS7 with the transmitter via Bluetooth® connection – simple!
For a truly personalised experience, use the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer smartphone app to take photos of your ears, to analyse your unique hearing characteristics as a result, and to integrate these characteristics into your SRS-NS7 audio experience.
Aside from enjoying Dolby Atmos® content on your TV, on the music side the SRS-NS7 also supports 360 Reality Audio[iv] when used with a smartphone – so you can enjoy the atmosphere of a gig. Available via your smartphone from compatible music services such as Deezer, nugs.net and TIDAL, you can immerse yourself in music all around you.
In addition to being the perfect partner to BRAVIA XR TVs, the SRS-NS7 also pairs with devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones[v]. This personal wireless neckband speaker lets you enjoy your favourite entertainment with 2-channel stereo, even on palm-sized devices.
Thrilling sound, only around you
Using Sony’s renowned audio technologies, the SRS-NS7 delivers crystal clear acoustics and powerful sound pressure for richer, deeper sounds for the ultimate personal cinema experience. This is thanks to an X-Balanced Speaker Unit that provides the optimum speaker size in a compact body and increases sound pressure and reduces distortion for clear music and vocals. Alongside this, the upward facing speaker delivers clear sound directly at you without disturbing others, so you can be fully immersed in your movies and music even at midnight. Plus, the passive radiator increases low frequency response for clear bass sound delivering thumping music sound effects and deep beats.
Pictures and sound, perfectly in sync
The supplied wireless transmitter helps minimise audio delay for SRS-NS7 when connected with BRAVIA XR TVs so you can be fully immersed in Dolby Atmos® movies with sound and pictures precisely matched[vi].
Comfortable fit for non-stop entertainment
If all-night movie marathons or binge-watching your favourite TV shows is your thing, the SRS-NS7 has your non-stop entertainment needs covered.
The SRS-NS7 provides hours of comfortable viewing of your favourite movies, TV shows or concerts thanks to its flexible and ergonomic design that fits securely around your neck. The flexible band on the back of the speaker helps you find the perfect fit for total comfort while enjoying your entertainment.
Plus, there’s no need to worry about battery life. The SRS-NS7 provides up to 12 hours[vii] of power and up to 5 hours[viii] at maximum volume so even the longest movies and TV shows just keep on playing. If you do run low, quick charging with USD type-C® for 10-minutes gives you up to an extra 60 minutes of extra play time[ix].
It’s not just TV, movies and music where the SRS-NS7 excels, the wireless neckband speaker is also great for home working with easy hands-free calling. Optimal microphone placement allows the SRS-NS7 to capture and deliver your voice in excellent quality, while the X-Balanced Speakers Unit reproduces colleague’s voices clearly. Plus, with echo cancelling minimising feedback, everyone on the call can hear and be heard clearly.
Designed with total convenience in mind, the SRS-NS7 also features Multipoint Connection[x]. This lets you connect two devices at the same time, such as your laptop and smartphone[xi]. So, if a business call comes in on your laptop while you’re listening to music on your smartphone, you can take the call with just one click of the Play/Call button on the left side of the neckband. Once the call is over, you’re automatically reconnected back to your favourite playlist.
The IPX4[xii] splash-proof design of the SRS-NS7 lets you enjoy your favourite shows and tunes anywhere in the house without worry, even while doing your daily chores like washing up. Plus, the open-ear style allows you to watch and listen away from your device while still being aware of what’s going on around you.
Premium yet practical design
The SRS-NS7 features a fabric surface finish offering a comfortable feel that’s a pleasure to wear and own. With a silicone finish neckband and soft-feel rear coating, the SRS-NS7 is perfect for everyday use and easy to clean.
The SRS-NS7 is not only designed to be stylish, but also with the environment in mind. Less than 5% of the SRS-NS7 packaging is plastic, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its products and practices.
Enjoy 360 spatial sound experience on your headphones
Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound experience on BRAVIA XR TVs5 will also be available on selected Sony headphones[xiii] when paired with the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter[xiv].
The SRS-NS7 and WLA-NS7 will be available from November 2021 in selected countries in Asia Pacific. For a full list of specs and information, please visit https://www.sony-asia.com/electronics/wireless-speakers/srs-ns7?cid=pr-apac-36824.
