Today, Sony revealed the Inzone line of gaming devices. Three headsets and two displays make up the launch lineup. On a PC or a PlayStation 5, Inzone products are made for an immersive gaming experience.
Gaming monitors from Sony Inzone M9 and M3
Both have IPS LCD displays and are 27″ gaming monitors. The Inzone M9 offers a 144Hz refresh rate and 4K resolution (120Hz over HDMI). It makes use of Full Array Local Dimming for enhanced dynamic contrast. It is VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified and has a maximum brightness of 600 nits. Furthermore, this display offers 95% DCI-P3 coverage.

The Sony Inzone M3 reduces the resolution to 1080p while increasing the refresh rate to 240Hz (including over HDMI). The display boasts 400 nits of maximum brightness and is edge-lit (DisplayHDR 400). This monitor has a 99.9% sRGB colour gamut coverage.
The factory calibrates both displays to achieve the desired levels of colour accuracy. Additionally, they assist HDR10 and HLG formats. They support G-Sync and HDMI 2.1 VRR for variable refresh rate in terms of refresh rate (24Hz minimum). Their 1ms gray-to-gray transition times are another highlight.
One DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI inputs are available on each monitor. They also have a built-in USB hub with three Type-A outputs and one Type-B input. Since the built-in KVM feature allows the USB connection to be switched along to follow the visual input, these are ideal for attaching keyboards, mice, and controllers.
Sony also introduces three headphones and two Inzone gaming monitors (4K 144Hz and FHD 240Hz).
You may link a PlayStation 5 and a PC with this. Some PS5-specific features include automated genre picture mode and HDR tone mapping (e.g. switching to Cinema mode when you put on a movie). There are PC features as well, such as specialised PC software that enables you to customise each display setting.
You may adjust the height and tilt of both monitors’ stands for maximum comfort. To keep things organised, the middle pillar serves as a cable channel. For compatibility with your lighting system, the M9 also contains an RGB LED strip on the rear.
Pre-orders for the Sony Inzone M9 cost $900, €1,100, or £1,000 (coming this summer). By the end of this year, the Inzone M3 will go on sale for $530.
Those headphones are the Sony Inzone H9, H7, and H3.
These three have a similar exterior look but offer various capabilities to suit your requirements and financial constraints. The H3 is a wired headphone while the first two are wireless.
While the H9 and H7 do support Bluetooth, their best use is with the supplied USB dongle that provides low-latency connectivity over 2.4GHz, which may have made you cringe when you saw the word “wireless.” You may easily answer an incoming call by connecting the headphones (through Bluetooth) to the dongle and your smartphone.
The boom mic is simple to use and provides excellent audio quality for voice chats in games; simply flip it up to mute or down to talk. The audio balance between voice chat and game audio can be adjusted via a hardware button.
360 Spatial Sound is supported by all three headphones. The Inzone Hub PC software, which also has algorithms to convert 2 channel stereo into 7.1 channel surround sound, may enable this. For smartphones, there is an app called 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer.
The Sony Inzone H9 has a dedicated button to switch between Ambient sound mode and Active Noise Cancellation (100Hz-8,000Hz). The headphones’ playtime is 32 hours when the ANC is turned off.
The Inzone H7 is devoid of ANC. They have a 40-hour battery life, which is a benefit. The frequency response of the H9 and H7’s 40mm drivers, which use EDCCA voice coils and neodymium magnets, ranges from 5Hz to 20,000Hz.

There are no batteries to worry about with the Inzone H3. Additionally, these headphones offer 40mm speakers with a frequency response of 10Hz to 20,000Hz (CCAW voice coil with neodymium magnets, 35 Ohm impedance).
You can pre-order all three headsets right now from Sony’s own website, Amazon, and Best Buy. The Inzone H9 is priced at $300 (euro), the H7 at 230 (euro), and the H3 at 90 (euro).
