Sony has launched a new range of hi-res portable audio gear at IFA in Berlin including headphones and players. We went hands-on.
BERLIN -- Sony has announced its new H.ear range of "hi-res" portable products which includes in-ear and on-ear headphones in addition to a new Walkman.
The H.ear in, H.ear On and NW20 series Walkman come in bright "fashion" colors in addition to compatibility with higher-than-CD quality audio.
Sony's new MDR-100AAP headphone comes in five different colors, which correspond to the H.ear On Walkman.
The H.ear In headphones go in your ears. Geddit?
The Walkman NW-A20 series will feature two models -- the 16GB NW25 and the 64GB NW27 -- which feature noise-cancelling compatibility and up to 50 hours playback of 24-bit/192kHz files.
Like the headphones, the Walkman comes in five different colors.
The H.ear Ons fold for better portability.
The headphones are due in the US in November for $200 and while UK and Australia details are still unannounced, this converts to £130 or AU$285.
