Sony introduced INZONE, a new gaming gear brand for PC gamers that sharpens the senses and improves gaming performance. INZONE monitors (not available in the Asia Pacific region) provide an incredible, high-resolution, high-dynamic-range image, while gaming headsets provide superior sound and 360 Spatial Sound.
This new brand embraces Sony’s expertise as an audio-visual technology pioneer, delivering features that will completely immerse gamers in the action. INZONE, a path to an immersive zone that leads to a victorious ending, is designed for exceptional performance.
“We are committed to contributing to the growth of gaming culture by providing PC and PlayStation® gamers with a wider range of options to enrich lives through gaming. Also, Sony is proud to have a sponsorship with leading global esports leagues, Evolution Championship Series (Evo) 2022 and 2023, PGL DOTA2 Arlington Major 2022 and the VALORANT Champions Tour with our wish for further advancement of gaming culture.” said Yukihiro Kitajima, Head of Game Business and Marketing Office, Sony Corporation.
The new line will include two new wireless headsets, the INZONE H9 (32-hour battery life) and the INZONE H7 (40-hour battery life), as well as a wired headset, the INZONE H3. All three models include a flexible flip-up boom microphone with mute function, allowing users to communicate with squad members in-game with ease.
Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound for Gaming, which is activated by the INZONE Hub PC software, creates spatial sound from multi-channel audio signals, just as the game designers intended. This accurate sound reproduction improves spatial awareness by allowing the player to hear footsteps and movements precisely. Furthermore, with the smartphone app “360 Spatial Sound Personaliser,” users can have the spatial sound tailored to their ear shape for truly personalized gameplay.
The diaphragms of the INZONE H9 and INZONE H7, developed from Sony’s expertise in headphone technology, have a unique shape that allows the headphones to reproduce extremely high frequency sounds with high compliance, as well as authentic low frequencies for an immersive gaming experience.
Ducts on the INZONE H9, INZONE H7, and INZONE H3’s housing control and optimize low-frequency sound reproduction for powerful bass that makes deep sounds seem incredibly real.
The wide, soft headband cushion distributes weight evenly across the player’s head for long-term wearing comfort. The earpads are designed to reduce pressure on the player’s ears by maximizing contact with the side of their head.
INZONE H9 has multiple noise canceling microphones that keep out any performance-disturbing noise, from noisy heaters and PC fans to loud construction work outside. Sony has incorporated the same Dual Noise Sensor Technology used in the industry-leading 1000X series headphones for invincible gaming to enhance the gaming experience. With Ambient Sound Mode, you’ll never miss important ambient sounds like a phone call, the doorbell ringing, or a partner speaking while playing games.
INZONE H9 and INZONE H7 include on-screen indication, so players can easily adjust settings on their headset and see the settings reflected on the screen in the PlayStation®5 Control Center, along with gaming and chat balance, allowing players to change the volume balance between game audio and voice chat from the headset. It also comes packed with features including the ability to work with Tempest 3D AudioTech, which allows players to enjoy the immersive sounds when gaming with greater spatial expression.
Sony’s INZONE Hub PC software was created to control INZONE headsets, allowing users to personalise experiences by customising a wide range of operations, including a variety of sound and picture settings.
The packaging material of Sony’s products 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.
INZONE H9, INZONE H7 and INZONE H3 will be available in the Middle East & Africa region from beginning of August 2022.
