On the way this summer are the new Sony INZONE gaming peripherals
Pre-orders are now open for the upcoming Sony INZONE gaming peripherals product line. The Japanese electronics company has broadened their position on gaming hardware with new additions of gaming headphones and monitors.
The new series of Sony INZONE gaming peripherals is designed with the Sony PlayStation 5 and Windows PC in mind. Consisting of two gaming monitors (M9, M3) and three gaming headsets (H9, H7, H3), Sony states that the INZONE lineup is a part of their effort to appeal to a wider audience and will offer “an immersive experience to help lead gamers to victory”.
Their top-of-the-line INZONE M9 is a 27-inch 4K gaming monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate. With high contrast, Display HDR 600 certification, Full Array Local Dimming, and more than 95% DCI-P3 color space, these features deliver excellent highlights and deep blacks as well as accurate color reproduction. The 27-inch 1080p INZONE M3 may only be full HD but it boasts a 240Hz refresh rate with Display HDR 400 certification and 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum.
Both monitors offer G-SYNC and HDMI 2.1 variable refresh rate (VRR), along with exclusive features only found on the Sony INZONE gaming peripherals (Auto HDR Tone Mapping, Auto Genre Picture Mode) that will benefit the player’s experience on the PS5. At launch, the M9 will cost $899, whereas the M3 will cost $529.
All three of Sony’s INZONE headsets offer 360 Spatial Sound for Gaming, which is activated when using Sony’s PC software, INZONE Hub. Sony has developed a virtualizer that reproduces spatial sound from multi-channel audio signals. Additionally, they’ve also built a 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app for smartphones which will allow for customizations and optimizations on the fly. Each of the three headsets also include a flip-to-mute boom mic and are Discord certified.
The H9 and H7 headsets both have 2.4Ghz wireless with Bluetooth connectivity as well as Sony’s on-screen status notifications—a feature previously only found on the Sony Pulse 3D headset. While the H9 offers noise-canceling and Ambient Sound Mode, the H7 offers 8 extra hours of battery life with a total of 40 hours. The wired H3 model may lack the wireless and on-screen functionalities, but it’s also the least expensive option at $99. The H9 and H7 gaming headsets are priced at $299 and $229 respectively.
Sony clearly has been doing their homework providing consumers the best possible experience for the new generation of gaming. The market has been very competitive as of late, which can only benefit everyone involved. For more details on the Sony INZONE gaming peripherals, visit the INZONE website here.
