The Sony INZONE gaming earbuds feature an in-ear design with rubber ear tips. The company says that these earbuds have minimal contact with your ears to ensure comfort. These are equipped with 8.4mm drivers and have support ANC.

The earbuds also have low latency of below 30ms to avoid any sound delay while gaming. They have support for LC3 codec. The INZONE earbuds use Bluetooth Low Energy for audio transmission. The biggest highlight of the earbuds is their support for personalized spatial audio. Users can take a picture of their ear and upload it in the Sony companion app, after which the INZONE earbuds will optimize their sound output based on the shape of their ears.

Sony has also collaborated with professional gamers from esports organization Fnatic to tune the sound output and features of its gaming earbuds.

The microphone on the earbuds uses AI for noise filtration, which is trained over 500 million voice samples. The company says that this feature ensures that the microphone does not pick up unwanted sounds from the background which could be a nuisance for other players in voice communication.

The Sony INZONE Earbuds also have support for touch controls. Users can rely on these controls to adjust volume and music playback or customize the actions using the INZONE Hub.

Sony claims a battery life of up to 12 hours with its INZONE gaming earbuds. When paired with the charging case, these earbuds can offer a total playback time of up to 24 hours. The case comes with a USB-C port for charging.
