Sony Inzone headphones and monitors announced for PS5, PC gamers: Details
Sony announced on Wednesday that it is launching a new line of headphones and monitors targeting the growing PC gaming market as the Japanese conglomerate looks beyond its PlayStation console gaming target audience.
Sony, whose PlayStation 5 console has been hit by supply chain grunts, last month announced a pivot to releasing more titles on PC and mobile devices as subscription services and technology advances open up the game to a wider audience.
The Inzone range, developed by a unit outside Sony’s core gaming business, aims to take advantage of Sony’s audio and display technology, areas where Sony is seen to retain an advantage even as the company s has grown into an entertainment giant spanning movies, music and games.
Its headphones deliver sound that helps players locate enemies in-game, with a wired model priced at $99.99 (around Rs. 8,000) in the US and a noise-canceling wireless model priced at 299.99. $ (about 24,000 rupees). The Inzone monitors, which promise crisp visuals and a high refresh rate, cost $529.99 (around Rs. 42,000) and $899.99 (around Rs. 71,000) for a 4K version.
The equipment takes up the design of the PlayStation 5 range and is interoperable with the console.
