New Sony Ult Wear headphones launched in Malaysia in three colours priced at RM899

Sony is expanding their range of speakers and headphones in Malaysia to cater to a broader clientele. While their top of the line WF-1000XM5 wireless earbuds and WH-1000XM5 rule the roost on the premium end of the market, they’ve just launched their new Sony Ult Wear range of on-ear headphones in Malaysia that aim to offer an affordably balanced blend of noise cancelling and bass performance.

In terms of connectivity, you have the option to pair up via Bluetooth 5.2 with support for SBC, AAC and LDAC codecs or, optionally, you’re hook it up as a plain traditional pair of wired headphones via a provided 1.2m long cable.

Under the hood, the Sony Ult Wear headphones feature Sony’s Integrated Processor V1 used in the aforementioned premium 1000X series headphones and large 40mm dome-type neodymium drivers to kick out quite a bit of sound along with their Dual Noise Sensor tech that offers hefty noise cancelling capabilities. It also has an ambient sound mode for when you’re out and about and need to hear a measure of external noise. 

Of note is that the headphones have an Ult button that radically kicks up the bass output on demand.

Some interesting features of note on the Sony Ult Wear include multipoint connectivity to allow two devices to pair up with the headphones so you can swap them out as the situation requires such as when you need to take a call on your paired phone and then swap it back to your laptop after the call is done.
