These Sony earbuds pack 9mm dynamic drivers, and a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz. The earphones use Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity, with support for the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The headset is IPX4 rated for water resistance.
Next, the earbuds support Dolby Atmos but only when used with a Sony WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter and a Bravia XR TV.
