  • The leak claims these earbuds can last up to 24 hours

It’s been a little over a year since Sony introduced its gaming gear brand “INZONE.” After launching a number of gaming monitors and some of the best gaming headsets around, the company is expected to announce low-latency earbuds next.

According to a leak from WinFuture, Sony is expected to launch the INZONE Buds WF-G700, its first in-ear headphones from the INZONE line. As with other accessories from this brand, the earbuds are specially made for gaming purposes. In particular, the INZONE Buds WF-G700 will have a few gaming-friendly features including low latency, active noise cancelation (ANC), spatial audio, and long-lasting battery life.

According to the outlet, these earbuds will use ANC to make it possible to game in peace, even in noisy environments. It will also get INZONE’s 360 Spatial Sound for Gaming, with the ability to create hearing profiles through the personalization app for more precise spatial sound.

In terms of latency, it looks like these earbuds will only have a latency of 30 milliseconds. This is, in part, due to the USB-C dongle that appears to come in the charging case.

Speaking of charging, the earbuds offer up to 12 hours of game time with the low-latency dongle. That’s extended to 24 hours if you’re connected via Bluetooth Low Energy (LE Audio) and have ANC turned off. The outlet claims this is possible due to a new energy-saving chip Sony has produced called the L1. You’ll also reportedly get up to an hour of battery life after five minutes of fast charging.

Another interesting wrinkle Sony has added in the inclusion of microphones from the mobile industry. The company has adapted these microphones and integrated them into the buds. It has also trained the noise suppression algorithm these microphones use with AI to enhance ANC and to ensure that the user’s voice can be clearly heard by others.

The INZONE Buds WF-G700 will reportedly be sold for $199 in Black or White. For those in Europe, the leak says these earbuds should cost €200. Additionally, you’ll be able to use the new earbuds on your PS5 or PC.
