Sony adds new SBH20 stereo Bluetooth earphones to range

In tandem with the launch of the Sony Xperia ZR, Sony has rolled out a iPod shuffle inspired pair of stereo Bluetooth earphones. The new SBH20 uses a small shuffle-like case to enclose a Bluetooth 3.0 receiver and rechargeable battery, while also function as a remote control for a connected smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device. The SBH20 incorporates a clip that users can use to pin to their clothing, minimizing the amount of cabling while allowing the connected device to remain stored in a backpack or handbag.

As with all of Sony's Bluetooth-connected devices released in 2013, the SBH20 also includes NFC for 'One-touch' pairing with other NFC-enabled devices. The device supports a number Bluetooth profiles including HFP v1.6 (HD ready), A2DP 1.2, AVRCP v1.4 - Control and Target Role and HSP v.1.2. Remote control functions include answer, call end, Play and Pause, next and previous track keys and volume up and down keys. Standby time is rated at 200 hours while it will actively stream audio for up to 6 hours.

The earphones include 9.2mm dynamic drivers rated at 16ohms and with a frequency range of 20Hz to 20KHz. Sensitivity is 100.5dB, while total harmonic distortion is less than 0.5 percent. The built-in microphone is a 4mm ECM type. The SBH20 also weigh in at just 12.3 grams. As with the Sony Xperia ZR, the SBH20 comes in a range of colors including black, white, turquoise, pink and orange and is due reach various markets in the next few weeks with pricing to be announced.
