Sony Xperia Ear
Although the waterproof Xperia Ear wireless earbuds are already available in European stores, those interested in this accessory who are located in the US should wait a few weeks. The US market is scheduled to get this product on December 13.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
