Sony reveals full details on its upcoming 360 Reality Audio speakers”

Spatial audio is also found in headphones, be it the AirPods Pro or AirPods Max with iOS 14's Spatial Audio, or using Sony's take on the technology, 360 Reality Audio. In case you didn't know, the 360 Reality Audio is Sony's spatial audio technology that aims to replicate live music by placing different sounds and vocals in a room around you.

A free 360 Reality Audio service trial coupon is included when you purchase the RA5000 and RA3000. The RA5000 features a trio of up-firing speakers that spread music vertically, while the three middle sited speakers spread sound horizontally. If the content you're listening to isn't available in Sony's 360 format, the immersive sound enhancement algorithm converts stereo tracks for an simulated experience. This is also a design that we are seeing for the first time from Sony, if you compared it with other SRS speaker designs.

Sony is delivering two new 360 Reality Audio-viable speakers this spring, the SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000, in spite of the fact that there isn't a lot of detail on either past help for Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant. However, this doesn't make them smart speakers themselves but they can integrate with other smart devices within your home and you can also make them play audio along with your other smart speakers.

Sony came up with this revolution in sound production in 2019, and it has since made it possible for listeners to enjoy a concert-like experience using their headphones and speakers alike.

Inside the speaker, there's a full range speaker, a dual passive radiator for bass, tweeters that fire up, and an omni-diffuser to fire sound around the room, essentially creating sound that goes about and around the place.

Both speakers offer a range of wireless connectivity, including Bluetooth, WiFi, Spotify Connect and Google Cast. With either the Google Home or Amazon Alexa app, you can setup units as part of a multi-room audio system. Both speakers will also adjust volume automatically, according to the company.

The RA3000 is created to be humidity-resistant, and this allows it to be placed in moist and humid environments without any damage or malfunction. The speakers are coming to the U.S., but specifics won't be available for a bit longer.

The new Sony SRS-RA3000 will be available in Australia from mid-February 2021 for SRP $449.

Only UK and Europe pricing has been announced thus far (£500/€599 for the RA5000, and £280/€359 for the RA3000), with both slated to arrive next month, but U.S. availability has been confirmed as well.
