xperia-ear-japan-launch_1Sony Mobile has given the first indications of pricing for its upcoming Xperia Ear ‘personal assistant’, by announcing Japanese launch details. The Xperia Ear (XEA10) is due to launch in Japan on 18 November at a recommended price point of 19,880 Yen (£150, €170, $190) excluding tax.

Sony is billing the Xperia Ear as your very own personal assistant, allowing you to send/receive messages, check your schedule, search and more – all without the need to pick up your smartphone. You simply need to just talk to the Xperia Ear and it will deliver the information straight to your ear. In this respect, Sony appears to be competing against other AI systems such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Sony has also included a number of sensors (integrated proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer) to employ an element of motion control – simply nod to confirm a command. Our only worry is that it may flag you as some crazed person talking and nodding to seemingly no-one on the train home from work.

These sensors will also be able to figure out if you are in the ear or sat inside the charging case. Once the Xperia Ear is placed in the ear, it will automatically turn on to deliver the latest updates.

The Xperia Ear (XEA10) has a 65mAh battery, which Sony says is good for around 4 hours of talk time. It also comes with a charging case (300mAh battery) that will add around 12 hours to your talk time. The Xperia Ear comes with Bluetooth 4.1 and can be charged via micro USB.

    I like where they’re going with this but they should have made it stereo with modules for the left and right ear.

  • rygarto

    Agreed, I spend more time listening to music and would hate carrying around two sets of BT headphones.

    Make it a two-piece, with the option of just wearing one as an assistant. Certainly at the price they are asking for.

    Micro USB, seriously!?

  • SAM

    Read it as Xperia Ear Pierced.. :p

    It’s a personal assistant for working people, not to listen music.
    They have plenty of headset for listening music..
    The choice is yours.

    Expensive but cool gadget, it will cost something like 200€ here in europe I’m sure..

  • Great Dude

    Even though the new Xperia phones comes with USB C , the majority of people still aren’t costumed to it, so a casual USB 2 type B as most phones is much better option because it is more common.

  • Great Dude

    It is more for people who uses bluetooth earphone for talking with others while driving and while working.
    Having only one instead of two would insure that this person is going to hear other people and the surrounding .
    But if they make it modular so a person can hear in the other ear ,maybe that would be a good idea for many people.

  • Mac

    Well as much as I understand your point I can’t agree about it being a better option. With mirco usb it will be outdated in like 2 months or so. It’s a struggle having a usb change again but I can’t really se benefits of old standard when working the best with new devices.
    I hate that all my accessories for the Ps3 is miniusb and I still have to look up the old cables everytime I’m going to charge for example my headset for Ps4 och the other headset I use for phonecalls at home.

  • Great Dude

    That is a reason why I hated USB C , I knew that these issues are going happen again.
    Maybe they should have added both like how on PC and on Xperia S (though the other one is HDMI port )

  • Mac

    Yea, it’s a bit sad the usb-c doesn’t fit the micro-usb hole. But hell, ebay got adaptors ;D
