Sony Announces ‘INZONE’ Gaming Gear Brand With Bonkers Headset Range

While it has been a leader in the headphone and noise-cancelling segment for years – we just tested out their latest flagship noise-cancelling headphones – Sony has seldom jumped into the gaming peripherals market, one that continues to grow at exponential rates. It seems the time for expansion is now, and the brand is jumping in head first, literally, with three new gaming headsets targeted to all price points under their new gear brand ‘INZONE’. Quoted headline features include noise-cancelling with ‘superior sound’ and 360 Spatial Sound, let’s check out the details.

With the casual and professional gamers looking for the best gaming headsets on a daily basis, Sony understands there’s never been a better time to throw their hat in the ring and support.

“The market has been expanding with a higher interest in gaming with the spread of esports tournaments and the advancement of gaming entertainment,” Yukihiro Kitajima, head of game business and marketing, Sony Corporation said. “With Sony’s strong history of high-end audio and visual technology products, we believe this new line will offer even more options for those looking to upgrade their current gaming systems. We are committed to contributing to the growth of gaming culture by providing PC and PlayStation gamers with a wider range of options to enrich lives through gaming.”

INZONE H9

The Sony INZONE headphone range kicks off with the H9 that features all the fruit, most importantly, noise-cancelling. As with all models in the lineup, there’s a flip-up boom mic and 360-degree spatial audio that allows you to hear the exact location of enemies around you. The H9 and the more cost-effective H7 feature the same internal diaphragms that allow the headphones to reproduce extremely high-frequency sounds, as well as authentic low frequencies. We can’t wait to check out how these sound, as the benchmark has really been set for us in our time with the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT.

Noise cancelling is offered on the H9 Headset and utilises the same Dual Noise Sensor Technology used in the 1000X series headphones. Ambient sound mode, something that we loved in the WH-1000XM5, also makes its way into the INZONE H9. Rounding out the features are a handful of software inclusions exclusive to the Playstation 5, including; gaming chat balance and a settings menu that’s likely to make them the best Sony Playstation 5 Headset money can buy.

INZONE H7

The INZONE H7 receives all the same features as the H9 minus the noise cancelling. These are designed for those who game in quiet rooms and the lack of noise-cancelling adds to battery life that improves to 40 hours – 8 hours longer than the H9, and far longer than our personal Corsair headset that lasts a measly 15 hours.
