Wearing headphones usually means blocking out the other sounds around you, which is something the Sony Xperia Ear Duo looks to change with a revolutionary new design. The headphones work by enabling users to listen to their music without losing their ability to hear ambient sounds around them in addition to notifications that come through from their smartphone. This keeps users connected without disconnecting them from the world around them as they commute, explore or go about their daily routine.
The Sony Xperia Ear Duo headphones identify the need for more passively connected solutions as consumer lifestyles shift inherently towards digitization. This keeps them continuously connected without feeling as though they are in their own world when participating in work or play.
