Sony Xperia Ear coming to the US next month
Sony fans in the US are probably not too happy these days, especially if they were eager to grab the Xperia Ear wireless earbuds. Although the US release of this accessory was expected to occur this month, it looks like the Voice Control-enabled headset will finally become available on North American soil on December 13.
The Sony Xperia Ear wireless earbuds are extremely light and compact, coming with IPX2 water protection and offering up to 4 hours of talk time with the internal battery and 16 hours with the help of the charging case. Unfortunately, the only color available is graphite black. This accessory features head gestures, assistant/call key, uses Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC connectivity, but its specs also include noise suppression and echo cancellation, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensors, and more.
The price tag carried by the Xperia Ear in the US is $199.99 USD. Amazon will launch them on December 13, with other retailers expected to follow after a while. The competing AirPods by Apple can be already purchased and retail for $159 USD.
