In a world of smart devices from phones to wristwatches where the consumer is spoilt for choice comes another addition to the smart family – Sony Xperia Ear Duo which connects you to the world. Imagine an earphone that allows you to hear sounds from your surroundings while still listening to your favourite music. Yes, you heard right, and there’s more to this cool device.
According to Sony, the Xperia Ear Duo does not block the ear canal, which makes it possible to hear your music and environment simultaneously. What the earphone does is to adjust the volume, so you can hear other sounds around you. Through the “Spatial Acoustic Conductor” developed by Sony’s in-house tech incubator, Future Lab Program, it allows sound generated behind the ear by the unit’s driver to be transmitted directly into the ear.
