[MWC 2019]: Sony brings SBH82D wireless open-ear headphones featuring Google Assistant and NFC

“The Sony SBH82D wireless open-ear headphones are claimed to last for 7.5 hours in playing mode, 8 hours of talk time and 200 hours of stand by time.”

After unveiling a number of handsets at the ongoing 2019 Mobile World Congress, Sony has announced a wireless open-ear Bluetooth headset, the SBH82D with NFC support, Google Assistant and Siri voice assistant. The true free-hand earphones resemble the in-built quality of Xperia Ear Duo headset, which features an open-ear design to allow users to listen to the music without muting the surrounding.

In terms of the connectivity, Sony SBH82D can be linked to a smartphone through the Bluetooth v4.2. The headset also supports Google Assistant and Siri assistant functions and features NFC for a quick connection. The quality of the music and beat can be described by the 32 ohms (1kHz) nominal impedance and a frequency of 20–20,000Hz. The device also features beat response control.

It uses a key to answer, end or reject a call and also helps to play music, skip tracks, replay or switch to the next song.

For easy and convenient handling, the Bluetooth open-ear headphones come with a compact design with foldable wires and are lightweight overall. The easy fold design of the wires helps the headset to relax behind the neck while the user enjoys the audio. The cable length behind-neck measures 255mm and the wire that reaches the ear scales to 210mm long. The headset weighs 25.6 grams.

The Sony SBH82D will be available in selected markets in Black, Gray, and Blue colours variants. There are no details regarding the pricing yet.
