The wireless Xperia Ear Duo lets the user listen to music without covering the user’s ears, making it possible to hear ambient noise and conversations with tunes playing in the background . Featuring a Sony-original open-ear structure, the device unlocks new listening experiences that layer music over ambient sound—a user could, for example, play their favorite songs against a backdrop of calming ocean sounds. By connecting the devices to their smartphones, users can also enjoy a wealth of hands-free operations via voice commands and head gestures—from making calls to sending LINE messages . To enhance the Ear Duo as a wearable device, the design team used an ergonomic under-ear configuration and a stainless aesthetic for the exposed sound-conducting tube for a chic look.
