Sony INZONE H9 /H7 / H3 out of the box
Because H9 and H7 only have noise reduction function, the appearance is very close to the box; while H3 has the same size and appearance, but the box is smaller
Here you can see the difference in box size of the three earphones~
By the way, while equipped with innovative technology, the packaging materials of the new INZONE earphone series are all plastic-free, using recycled materials and non-woven cellulose, to practice Sony’s commitment and efforts to environmental sustainability!
This article mainly introduces H9, and he has the best sound performance and function!
The H9 and the other two earphones can be flattened and stored like this
If you use it often, I would recommend preparing a headphone storage rack for it (this is a specially made headphone rack for Sony that is not sold)
There is a halo next to the bracket, which is very gorgeous! When using a 2.4GHz connection, the white light will be constantly bright, the bluetooth connection will be blue, and the connection or pairing will be flashing, so you can know the product status at a glance!
Included USB-A to USB-C charger
The USB transceiver provides 2.4GHz wireless connection, which can greatly reduce the delay and make the sound effect perfectly connected to the picture. It is the best or even the only choice for playing games (better than Bluetooth)
The status indicator on the 2.4GHz transmitter with the USB-A interface will light up whether it is installed on a PS5 or a computer (there is a PC/PS5 switch on it; no other devices are supported!)

The soft-fitting leather earpads are cut according to the shape of the ear to minimize the pressure on the ears by adjusting for the best touch with the side of the head. This highly stretchable ear pad material is designed for comfort, stability and sound isolation. Different from the 1000X series earphones, the H9 does not use artificial protein earmuffs to cover the material, but the comfort is also good, but the non-air-conditioned room may feel a little stuffy when the temperature is high in summer; the 40 mm dome type (EDCCA sound) is used inside. coil) Neodymium magnet PET film, frequency response 5Hz to 20,000Hz (JEITA)

The picture above is H7, and the picture below is H9; it can be seen that the only difference is that there is one less key for the noise reduction function.
The left earcup is the main operating control, including the volume knob, noise canceling/ambient sound mode button, and mic mute. There’s also a pendant microphone and USB port available on the device, and an LED indicator is displayed when charging. The right earcup houses the game/talk balance button, as well as the power and Bluetooth buttons.
The first earmuff type H9 on the left of the picture, the second one is H7, you can see that the material used for H7 is different, I feel that it is made of polymer fiber, which is a bit cool (ha is not bad)

The material of the earmuffs is relatively ordinary, I don’t know if it is related to the sample and there is a strange smell@@”

Sony’s new INZONE series gaming headset H9, H7 and H3 experience summary
Overall, I highly recommend the Sony INZONE H9. If there is really no need for noise reduction, you can consider the H7 (which can save 1900 yuan), because the sound quality of the two is the same, and I would strongly recommend using the connection. The 2.4GHz transmitter can perfectly correspond to PS5 game consoles, and secondly, whether it is PS5 or computer playing games, it can obtain the important effect of ultra-low latency of audio, synchronizing the picture with the sound effect.
Even when listening to music, I tested the sound with the 2.4GHz transmitter (whether it is a Win PC or a Mac), but if you want to listen to TV or mobile devices, you can only choose the Bluetooth connection. Although I don’t have any Sony 1000X series earphones, it’s not too long since I listened to the Sony WH-1000XM5 last time. I don’t think there is much difference between the sound effects and music listening performance of the H9 or H7! Or it can be said that the sound of XM5 is more detailed, while the sound of H9/H7 is more aggressive, so it can be said to be a perfect wireless headset for playing games, listening to music and watching movies!
NZONE H9 and H7 provide players with the immersive listening experience brought by the PlayStation 5’s Stormwind 3D sound technology, and experience a better spatial performance; at the same time, they can correspond to the screen display function, display settings directly on the PS5 control center, and change the headset game. The volume balance between sound effects and spoken dialogue works seamlessly with the PlayStation 5 console, and it also looks great in design!
All I can say is that the sound performance of H7/H9 is definitely not worse than that of competitors in the same price range, and the powerful noise reduction function of H9 is more likely to be a super value-for-money noise-cancelling wireless dual-mode headset that beats all competitors. ! However, the sound quality performance of the H3 is a bit disappointing (compared to the H7), but after all, its price is only NT$2,790, which is quite reasonable in terms of functionality, and it also comes with a USB DAC for connection. A computer or a PS5!
