This is the Sony SRS-NB10 Neckband Speaker, “a perfect work-from-home product” that lets you take calls, listen to anything without shoving earbuds into your ears or covering them with headphones, and doing so without disturbing the peace of others.
Anywho, as far as this neck-worn speaker goes, it has a full-range speaker unit angled upwards and a passive radiator for clear sound and bass, while Precise Voice Pickup Technology, featuring two Beamforming mics and advanced audio signal processing, ensure parties on the other end can hear you clearly.
It connects to your source device wirelessly via Bluetooth, so you can in fact walk around as you listen or have a conversation, all while remaining alert to the surrounding. Very important if you have kids from hell at home.
The NB10 offers up to 20 hours of battery life with quick charge support that will provide an hour of use with just 10 minutes of charging.
Multipoint Connection allows two devices to be connected to it simultaneously. Finally, it is IPX4 rated, so there’s no worrying about it getting moisture damage while you are doing the dishes, or sweating out on the treadmill.
The Sony SRS-NB10 Neckband Speaker is available to order in charcoal gray or white in September for US$149.99. If you recall, that’s significantly cheaper than LG Tone Studio which is also a neck-worn speaker. In the meantime, you can learn more HERE.
