The INZONE Buds are designed to provide an immersive gaming experience with 360 Spatial Sound. Gamers can now precisely hear the direction and distance of in-game opponents, giving them a competitive edge. Sony has tailored the sound field within the INZONE Buds using advanced technology, analyzing the shape of the outer ear and acoustic characteristics of the ear canal.

Meanwhile, with Sound Field Optimization, gamers can create a personalized hearing profile by taking ear photos using the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer smartphone app. This ensures an unparalleled level of spatial accuracy, further enhancing the gaming experience.
The INZONE Buds are equipped with a specially engineered high-performance driver unit called Dynamic Driver X. This driver unit is designed for wide frequency reproduction and is also used in Sony’s WF-1000XM5. It employs a diaphragm structure that minimizes distortion, delivering lifelike sound quality. This means gamers can immerse themselves fully in the gaming world, from powerful explosions to subtle footsteps.
Sony’s active noise cancellation technology in the INZONE Buds blocks out background noise, ensuring gamers stay focused on the game.
Moreover, the INZONE Buds feature a low power consumption processor L1 that provides up to 12 hours of battery life in the earbuds, with up to 24 hours total battery life when using the charging case.
