Over the last few years, Sony has been trying to make inroads into the PC space by launching a number of PlayStation exclusives on PC. Now though, it looks like Sony is ramping up its efforts.
On Tuesday, the electronics maker announced the launch of a new brand of monitors and headsets it calls InZone. For now InZone’s product catalogue features monitors and headsets, but Sony could expand this in future.
Let’s take a look at the gaming monitors.
The premier model here is the InZone M9 which is a 27inch 4K (3840×1080) display with a 144Hz refresh rate as well asVESA DisplayHDR 600 support.
You’ll also find “gamer” features such as an on-screen crosshair, and more useful features such as a frame rate counter and timer. In terms of colour gamut coverage the InZone M9 covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
All of this sits atop a height adjustable stand that mirrors the PlayStation 5 aesthetic.
The second monitor in the range is the 27 inch InZone M3 and its a 1920x1080p monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate. Once again you will find HDR support but only VESA DisplayHDR 400 this time.
Both monitors support variable refresh rate technology and are compatible with NVIDIA G-Sync.
Next in the range are the InZone headsets. There are three in the range and all three feature 360 Spatial Sound for Gaming and are wireless.
The InZone H9 is the flagship headset here featuring noise cancellation and ambient sound mode so that you can hear what’s happening around you or be fully immersed. The H9 is said to have a 32 hour battery life and a 10 minute charge will yield up to an hour of game time.
The H7 and H3 are slightly parred down with the H3 being what we’d dub the entry point and the H7 being between the two.
As for local pricing and availability, we aren’t sure of that but will be in touch with Sony and PlayStation in South Africa to find out more. On that, however, Sony has said that the InZone monitors will launch in the US in Summer 2022 which is between now and September.
The InZone headsets are available for pre-order in the US right now.
