Hear and be heard: Sony comes with neckband speaker for virtual meetings

Sony will introduce the SRS-NB10 neckband speaker with bluetooth in September. The gadget with integrated speaker and microphone rests comfortably on the shoulders and can therefore be worn all day long. Moreover, you are no longer glued to the computer during an online meeting, but you can get a cup of coffee without missing a single word.

The new SRS-NB10 offers clear audio quality thanks to Precise Voice Pickup technology: two directional (beam-forming) microphones, combined with advanced audio signal processing, ensure minimal echo. This means that the user can always be heard hands-free, even in noisy environments.

The speakers in the neckband are directed upwards towards the earcups, and the so-called passive radiators at the back amplify the bass. The microphone can be turned off with a simple click of the mute button. At the other end of the SRS-NB10 are the volume buttons.

In addition to online meetings, the neckband is also great for playing music or listening to TV programs, according to Sony. The Multipoint Connection function is useful, with which you can connect two devices at the same time, such as a laptop and a smartphone. If a business call comes in via the computer while music is being played on a smartphone, you can quickly switch between the two sources via the Play/Call button on the left side of the neckband. Once the call ends, the music will continue to play without reconnecting.

The battery lasts up to twenty hours and can be charged quickly: ten minutes of plugging in via the USB-C connector is enough to be able to work for another hour. The anthracite gray SRS-NB10 will be launched on the Belgian market in September and will receive a target price of 150 euros.
