SAN DIEGO, October 4, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Sony Electronics Inc. today announced the new SRS-NS7 wireless neck speaker, the latest addition to its range of portable speakers, and the WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter. The SRS-NS7 provides an immersive home theater experience and when paired with the supplied wireless transmitter1, customers can enjoy tailor-made sound for a new way of listening. The WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter is also sold separately so that customers can enjoy the same cinematic sound when using certain Sony headphones.
Sony Electronics Introduces SRS-NS7 – A Portable Home Theater
“The SRS-NS7 transforms the way customers view their favorite Dolby Atmos® movies with Sony’s unique 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer,” said Tyler ishida, Vice President of Consumer Business Group, Sony Electronics Inc. “With powerful sound, long battery life and extremely comfortable design, this product is designed for uninterrupted entertainment.”
Ultimate immersion with 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer
The SRS-NS7 is the world’s first wireless neckband speakerphone that offers Dolby Atmos® when paired with Sony BRAVIA XR TV models2. It offers the unique 360 spatial sound, which delivers a perfectly optimized cinematic experience with the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app. When the SRS-NS7 is paired via Bluetooth® with the supplied wireless transmitter connected to a BRAVIA XR TV2, the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app can take a photo of the user’s ear and analyze their hearing characteristics by estimating the 3D shape of the ear. This creates the ideal arrangement of virtual Dolby Atmos® speakers around the user3.
In addition to enjoying Dolby Atmos® on a BRAVIA XR TV2, SRS-NS7 users can also discover 360 Reality Audio4 music when using their smartphone. 360 Reality Audio immerses users in music as if they are right in front of their favorite artist, and is available when using compatible music services such as Deezer, nugs.net, and TIDAL.
Thrilling personal sound experiences
Using renowned Sony audio technologies, the SRS-NS7 delivers crystal-clear acoustics and powerful sound pressure for the ultimate personal cinema experience. To achieve this, a X-Balanced speaker provides the optimum speaker size in a compact package and increases sound pressure and reduces distortion for clear music and vocals. Along with this, the upward-facing speaker delivers crisp sound directly to the user without disturbing others, so the customer can enjoy movies and music even at midnight. In addition, the passive radiator increases the low frequency response for a clearer bass sound to produce deep sound effects and rhythms.
Perfectly synchronized images and sound
The provided wireless transmitter helps minimize audio delay for the SRS-NS7 when connected to BRAVIA XR TVs, so users can be completely immersed in Dolby Atmos® movies with perfectly matched sound and images5.
Comfortable fit for non-stop entertainment
The SRS-NS7 is the perfect companion for all-night movie marathons or for binge-watching favorite TV shows. It offers hours of comfortable viewing for all types of content thanks to its flexible and ergonomic design that fits securely around the neck.
No need to worry about battery life with SRS-NS7 up to 12 hours6 power and up to 5 hours7 at maximum volume, so that even the longest movies and TV shows can continue to play. Even when the battery is low, a 10 minute quick charge provides up to 60 minutes of extra play time8.
The SRS-NS7 is also ideal for working from home with easy hands-free calling. Optimal microphone placement allows the SRS-NS7 to capture and output voice with excellent quality, while an X-Balanced speaker unit clearly reproduces the voices of colleagues. Plus, with echo cancellation that minimizes feedback, everyone on the call can hear and be heard clearly.
Designed with total convenience in mind, the SRS-NS7 also features Multipoint connection9, which allows users to connect two devices at the same timeten. So if a business call comes to a laptop while customers are listening to music on their smartphone, they can take the call with just one click of the Play / Call button on the left side of the neck strap. Once the call is over, it automatically reconnects to the smartphone’s playlist.
With a IPX411 splash-proof design, the SRS-NS7 lets users enjoy their favorite shows and tunes anywhere in the home worry-free, even during everyday tasks like washing dishes. Plus, the open-ear style allows customers to watch and listen while being aware of what’s going on around them.
High-end and practical design
With a fabric surface and a silicone neck strap, the SRS-NS7 is perfect for everyday use and is easy to clean.
The SRS-NS7 is not only designed to be stylish, but also with the environment in mind. Less than 5% of SRS-NS7 packaging is plastic, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its products and practices.
WLA-NS7 transmitter for some Sony headphones
The Sony 360 Space Sound Experience on BRAVIA XR TVs2 will also be available on select Sony headsets12 when paired with WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter13. The WLA-NS7 works with select Sony headphones to create an atmospheric personal cinema that surrounds users for a new way of listening.
