Sony Xperia Ear Bluetooth Earpiece: Control Your Phone with Head Gestures

 |  |  |  |  September 19, 2016


You can use any Bluetooth earpiece for taking calls hands-free, interacting with your phone’s voice assistant, and receiving audio notifications. The Sony Xperia Ear, however, is designed to be different, giving users a new way to control their phones. It’s all about head gesture support.

Head gestures allow you to trigger actions by nodding your head, turning left and right, and more. You won’t even have to talk to confirm an action, dial a contact, or anything. Just program the earpiece to perform the desired action when it detects a specific head gesture. It also comes with its own voice assistant, which is the same one that Sony debuted in its Xperia Agent home robot. It can answer questions, compose messages, and trigger other events based on your commands.

The 65mAh battery will deliver up to four hours of talk time, with another 300mAh unit in the charging storage case that should extend that to 16 hours. It also features dual mics with noise suppression, and dual wireless connectivity (Bluetooth and NFC). The Xperia Ear headset will arrive later in the year for $225(USD).

It sounds good, but let’s hope that it isn’t a problem when you are nodding to friends or just turning your head to actually see something. I especially can’t imagine this thing selling well in India.
