The new line of headphones includes two wireless headphones, the INZONE H9 with 32 hours of battery life and the INZONE H7 with 40 hours of battery life, as well as a wired headset, the INZONE H3.
All three models feature a flexible flip-up boom microphone with a mute function, allowing users to communicate effortlessly in-game.
Benefits of Sony’s INZONE line of headphones include:
360° spatial sound
Enabled by INZONE Hub PC software, this feature reproduces 2-channel stereo audio signals in 7.1-channel surround sound as the game’s creators intended, providing players with spatial awareness to hear footsteps and movement.
The 360 Spatial Sound Customizer smartphone app also allows users to adjust spatial sound to the shape of their ear for personalized gameplay.
Sony leverages its expertise in headphone technology by creating the diaphragms of the INZONE H9 and INZONE H7, which have a unique shape that allows them to reproduce extremely high frequency sounds with high compliance and bass authentic frequencies for a more immersive gaming experience.
Additionally, the INZONE H9, INZONE H7, and INZONE H3 models include ducts on the cabinet that monitor and adjust low-frequency sound reproduction to deliver powerful bass that effectively recreates real-world sounds.
More comfort for long periods
The new line also features large, soft headband cushions that evenly distribute weight across the player’s head, meaning they’re more comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Additionally, the pads are designed to minimize pressure on the player’s ears by maximizing contact with the side of their head.
Noise canceling mode and ambient sound
INZONE H9 has various noise-canceling microphones to prevent any sound that could interrupt the game.
Sony has also included the same dual noise sensor technology used in the 1000X series headphones.
Ambient Sound Mode means gamers can still be immersed in the game without missing important outside noises such as a phone call, doorbell, or someone talking while playing games.
Interoperability for enhanced gameplay
Ideal for PlayStation 5, INZONE H9 and INZONE H7 include on-screen indication, allowing gamers to easily adjust their headset settings and see the settings reflected on-screen in the PlayStation 5 Control Center.
Game and chat balance is also included, allowing gamers to change the volume balance between game audio and voice chat from the headset.
Additionally, the product line comes with a range of features, such as the ability to work with Tempest 3D AudioTech, allowing gamers to enjoy immersive sounds when gaming with greater spatial expression.
Customize gameplay with INZONE Hub PC software
Sony has created its INZONE Hub PC software to control INZONE headsets, allowing users to personalize experiences by customizing a wide range of operations, including a variety of sound settings.
Sony product packaging material is plastic-free and uses only recycled materials and non-woven cellulose, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of products and practices.
Pricing for INZONE H9, INZONE H7 and INZONE H3 is AU$449.95, AU$349.95 and AU$149.95, respectively, and the range will be available in Australia from late July 2022.
