Accompanying this innovation is the INZONE H5 wireless headset, which offers an astonishing 28 hours of uninterrupted gameplay, ensuring comfort during extended gaming sessions. Both of these products were born through a collaboration with the renowned esports team, Fnatic, who will celebrate 20 years of operation in 2024 and secured back to back international titles in the VALORANT Champions Tour this year.

INZONE continues to elevate your PC and PlayStation gaming experience with enhanced audio realism.
360 Spatial Sound for Gaming
With 360 Spatial Sound on INZONE Buds you can hear the direction and distance of your opponent so you’ll always be one step ahead of the competition. Through its years of work on industry leading headphone technology, Sony has developed the INZONE Buds to offer a sound field tailored to you. By analysing not only the shape of the outer ear, but also the acoustic characteristics of the ear canal, INZONE Buds offer more precise spatial sound.
With Sound Field Optimisation, you can create a personalised hearing profile by taking photos of your ears using the 360 Spatial Sound Personaliser smartphone app. Then you can enjoy your game with unmatched spatial accuracy.
INZONE Buds can be optimised for your ear canal with Sound Tone Personalisation. The earbuds play test sounds from driver units and use feedback microphones to measure how the sound fills your ear canal. Based on the acoustic analysis, the sound is then personalised using the INZONE Hub PC application, ensuring a truly own spatial listening experience.
Dynamic Driver X
By faithfully reproducing every sound within the game, from powerful explosions to subtle footsteps, you'll feel transported into the world of the game. This is made possible through specially engineered high-performance driver unit - Dynamic Driver X - that is designed for wide frequency reproduction, and which is also used with the WF-1000XM5. The diaphragm structure, which utilises different materials for both the dome and edge, ensures minimal distortion and a clear sound quality, delivering an unparalleled level of auditory realism.
Sony’s active noise cancellation capabilities mean INZONE Buds block out background noise, so you can focus on the game.
Power up your gaming sessions
The new low power consumption processor L1 provides up to 12 hoursii of battery life in the headphones, with up to 24 hours total battery life with the charging case. With the industry's longest battery life, the INZONE Buds are ready to power longer sessions and revolutionise your gaming.
The INZONE Buds come with a USB-C® dongle connection that provides latency of less than 30ms, meaning there will be nothing to hold you back.
