    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] While the concept of a neckband speaker has been around for some time, this is the first I find that is targeted for audio conferencing. Since I'm now working from home, using headphones is a bit isolating, so being able to hear around me while on audio meetings is interesting to me. The neckband is very light, all rubberized and barely notice is there, weight wise, it's comfortable to wear during the day. The controls are very large and intuitive, that can be used without having to look at it: On the left side, there's a volume control and play/pause/assistant button. The left has a power button and a mic mute. Pressing the power lightly announces the battery level. Holding it when turning it on puts it into pairing mode. There are no lights except for the power/pairing light that goes off after it's on. Overall it works like a generic Bluetooth headphone. There is no app from Sony and no desktop controls nor USB adapter. It's a straightforward Bluetooth headset. The headset remembers pairing with the phone and computer, but it works with one device at a time. If I force the connection from either the iPhone or the MacBook, it switches devices. Audio, it sounds as one would expect: Good, clear sound, but not as immersive as a headphone. It sounds a bit tinny, and without the richness of a good headphone. At first it sounds like someone is speaking right behind the neck. A bit disconcerting the first day, but got accustomed to it by the second day. Mic quality seems excellent. No complains from the other side of my calls. The mic mute button, when activated, there are no lights on the headset but it plays a voice remainder that the mics are muted very frequently to the point it's too annoying. Because there is no integration, when muted just turns off the mic. Doesn't tell apps like Zoom to go on mute. Playing music is OK. It's acceptable. Not as good as a good headphone but that's not the point. It's good to be able to hear the environment around me and relieve pressure from my ears. Battery is excellent. Rated at 20 hours. More than half the charge at the end of the week. Charging is via USB-C. Comes with an USB-A to USB-C charging cable. Bluetooth is 5.1 and supports SBC and AAC codecs. Range is about the same as other Bluetooth headphones. My '17 MacBook disconnects it when two rooms away from it, with some walls in between. The sound is not as directional as I expected. I can hear the conversation, although not as clearly, when leaving them on a table near me. Overall it's good to alleviate stress on my ears being on conference calls much of the day.

  • Purpose Built. Listen to music in the open.
    Reviewed by Rhostam - 20 septembre 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sony - Bluetooth Wireless Neckband Speaker - Charcoal Gray Summary: Lightweight neckband that allows you to listen to music (or whatever) while on the go while also allowing you to listen to the world around you. Pros: * Form Factor. This neckband is just the right size. The fit overall is a good one. * Lightweight. The unit is light and doesn't feel heavy while equipped. * Audio quality. For a device that plays music up at your ears, the quality is quite nice. It won't be the experience of in-ear buds or cups, but that is the trade-off for being audibly aware of the world around you. * USB-C charging. Standard charging interface cable means fewer cable types to carry around. * Works for Intended Purpose. It definitely serves the purpose it was designed to fill. Music on the go while maintaining awareness. * Voice Feedback. Since this is a portable unit, you don't have tons of buttons. Voice feedback on operating status is super helpful for devices like this. "Bluetooth pairing mode," etc. Cons: * USB-C charging. It doesn't come with its own adaptor. You can use any USB adaptor, sure, but the tricky thing about USB-C is that some devices won't necessarily charge with high-output chargers (like one that I have) or ones that are too low (or the rate itself is too low). I list it as a con, but it's a potential inconvenience at best. * Directional audio is nice and it definitely delivers, but it wasn't as focused/targeted as I expected. As a result, it still isn't a device you would listen to on a plane, a bus, or a subway. Those around you will definitely hear the headset even on the lowest volume setting. Use: I seldom walk or jog with earbuds on. There are lots of bicyclists where I live, insane traffic, and also critters and animals roaming in the brush-covered preserves, sanctuaries, and groves I like to frequent. Being able to hear what is around you at some level is important and it is something you can't do with earbuds or cups. That is where this neckband shines. It just sits on your neckline and lets you absorb the surroundings and be aware all while enjoying some "ambient" music. Note: If I am holding a workout session at home, I still prefer a BT speaker on the shelf or possibly earbuds. The nature of the neckband means that gravity or sudden movements can cause this unit to fall off. My intention is to use this while I am working outdoors or going on hikes. Music makes the day go by quickly and who doesn't like to finish work "early?" ;)

  • Sony Sets the Bar High Once Again!

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sony Bluetooth Wireless Neckband Speaker Charcoal Gray When it comes to Bluetooth speakers that you can use to connect to your phone or listen to your music (or both), it just doesn’t get any simpler than this. With this Sony Neckband Speaker, you no longer have to worry about those pesky earbuds falling out of your ears, as has happened to me (and may others I’ve talked to) numerous times. And you don’t need to have to clip anything to your glasses, as you do with Frames. Charging is done via the supplied USB cable. Once fully charged, you can expect to get up to 20 hours of use, and a quick 10-minute charge will give you another 60 minutes of use, so power management shouldn’t be a problem. After connecting the neckband speaker to your devices via Bluetooth (you can connect it to both your phone and computer), you simply place this lightweight device around your neck and you’re good to go. After that, it connects reliably without any effort on your part whenever it’s turned on and in reach of your phone or other paired device. It has handy raised dedicated buttons for mute, volume, and power, so your operational choices are easy to identify and quick to implement. Since it’s a new product, some folks might ask about that “thing” around your neck when you’re out in public. Whenever folks asked me about it, I explained what it was and let them put it on their shoulders and listen to the music I was playing. I then got remarks such as “I love it.” and “Neat. I want one of those.”. Since it’s a new product, early adapters may experience the same inquiring reaction for a little while, but I expect these things will become mainstream pretty fast, so I don’t think you’ll be getting those questions for very long. The incoming sound quality is excellent, since the speaker placement is directed upward, towards your ears. And there are two microphones to make sure that your outgoing voice quality is clear during your phone calls. If you play your music at full blast, like I sometimes do, nearby folks may be able to hear it, but if you keep your volume at mid-levels, you’ll be able to hear just fine, but other folks won’t. And when you have strong background sounds, like loud traffic on busy streets or the waves crashing ashore in my daily beach walks, with full volume, some folks could hear the cars and waves in the background, but they stated that my voice was still strong and clear, and that, despite being able to hear the background noises, they didn’t interfere with our conversations. While I’m no longer a daily runner, I did want to see if the speaker might come off when a user was running. I jogged for a few blocks, and, while there was a slight bit of movement, there never was any discomfort or threat of the unit coming off. And it’s good to know that the unit has a splash-resistant rating of IPX4, so it’s suitable for everyday use and can stand up to splashes and sweat. Finally, Sony’s literature claims that it’s so light that you’ll forget you’re wearing it. I wore it for long stretches of more than eight hours and still couldn’t feel it. In fact, I found myself reaching for it more than once during that time, just to make sure that I still had it on and hadn’t lost it. So, I can assure you that that Sony claim is certainly true. At $149, you’d expect top quality, and this Sony Wireless Neckband Speaker delivers. Highly recommended.

  • Working from home just got more comfortable
    Reviewed by Dr Dee - 20 décembre 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 2020 made video conferencing meetings an everyday occurrence. Wearing a headphone all day, ears get hot - earbuds can make it sore. This wireless neckband with upward-firing speakers enables you to do multiple calls or video conferencing, without discomfort. It is beautifully made, robust the 20-hour battery life means that this device can last most of the day plus there's a USB-C port for charging with a 10-minute fast charge if you should run out of charge. For both voice and Zoom, call clarity is impressive and if I am working out outside, I connect to the music player via Bluetooth. All in all and impressive package that allows you to transition from work to leisure easily.

  • Great for use with your phone
    Reviewed by skylord - 26 septembre 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This neck band speaker is nice. It works great with my phone, was easy to pair and the sound quality is good. They were not so great for my Zoom or Teams calls. The sound would cut out for notifications on the laptop, so if a new email came in sound would drop from my meeting. I ended up closing my email so I could hear better. I was told that my voice sounded robotic or digitized when I would speak sometimes, even though I was right in front of my laptop. But, for using with my phone or listening to music or podcasts I think they work fine. I imagine they would be great to watch TV with as well.
