Sony Designed This Personal Wearable Speaker For All-Day WFH Comfort

With office environments finally becoming a feasible possibility once again, many of us are beginning to make our transition back to an in-person nine-to-five. However, for some, work from home will continue to be a reality of employment, necessitating Zoom meetings and all of their accompanying headaches. Thankfully, Sony has just unveiled some new tech that promises to make the experience a lot less painful (literally).

It’s called the ‘SRS-NB10,’ and it’s essentially a personal wearable speaker engineered for maximum video call comfort. As such, it eschews an in- or on-ear setup in favor of a lightweight neckband design that gently rests on the shoulders. Built with a full-range speaker system that includes a pair of upward-firing drivers and a passive bass-boosting radiator, it angles sound toward the user in order to minimize ambient noise around the room. And to make sure that the input quality is up to par as well, Sony has given the neckband a pair of beamforming microphones equipped with Precise Voice Pickup Technology. Offering integrated control buttons, IPX4 splash-resistance, and up to 20 hours of battery life, the SRS-NB10 goes on sale this fall for $150.

Purchase: $150
