Imagine if listening to music did not have to mean shutting off the outside world. Sony’s Neckband speaker is a neckrest that rests on your shoulders and beams your audio toward your ears in a concentrated beam. The Neckband speaker has Bluetooth connectivity and a microphone, so you can make calls or listen to music from up to 30m from your computer. No more excuses for missing a meeting just to have a cup of tea.
Sony claims that the full-range speaker’s upward angle optimises sound for your ears, but we would have to try it ourselves to be sure. The neckband weighs only 113g and is lightweight and comfortable. You can choose from charcoal grey or pristine White. We can also see it in rose-gold.
