Sony is a giant in the electronics industry with products ranging from cameras, TVs, smartphones to audio. The Japanese company has achieved a lot of success in the audio industry, and that doesn’t stop them from developing new headsets. This time, they are developing wireless headsets, aimed at athletes and helmet wearers.
In 2019, Sony filed a patent for a new wireless headset to the Japanese Patent Office JPO. This patent was published last month, with 9 images in black and white, along with a render image from LetsGoDigital. Unfortunately, we do not know anything more about this product at the moment. However, Sony has a short description of it.
Looking at clear, rendered images, these new headsets are wirelessly designed and geared towards physical activity. Notably, the description also reveals that the headset can be used inside the helmet. To do that, Sony has designed the ear inside the hat, while the control area will be placed outside. Because of the hook-style design, it can loop around the ears to distribute the weight evenly and does not feel too heavy on each side.
With this design, the microphone will be placed at the top of the control, making it easy to receive calls and bring better sound quality to the other end of the line. The control section also has a large touch space, which can be used to increase or decrease the volume. Hopefully, in the future, Sony will announce more information about this headset. And perhaps the most expected feature from Sony is noise cancellation.
