The all new INZONE M9 gaming monitor with HDR offers 4K resolution3 and high-contrast with Full Array Local Dimming for gamers looking for a high-contrast experience when playing games with deep blacks and brightness. Gamers can also look forward to a 144Hz refresh rate, IPS and 1ms GtG (Gray to Gray) response time for quick reactions. Additionally, the INZONE M3 gaming monitor provides a high refresh rate of 240Hz with 1ms GtG (Gray to Gray) and variable refresh rate technologies, allowing gamers to accurately capture movements of rivals in shooter games.

The unique, low depth tripod on both the INZONE M9 and INZONE M3 monitor stands provide total gaming comfort while optimizing desk space for peripherals. With a small monitor footprint, players can easily position an angled keyboard and large gaming mouse pad around or under the display. Additionally, INZONE M9 and INZONE M3 offer adjustable height and tilt, a selection of rear lighting colors and cable management for a clean desktop.

Featuring Auto KVM Switch (Auto USB Hub Switch), users can control up to two PCs from a single keyboard, mouse and headset connected to the monitor. With FPS Game Picture Mode, brightness and contrast are optimized to view opponents clearly. Additionally, the Black Equaliser feature allows for uncovering details even in shadows.

The new line will feature two new wireless headsets, the INZONE H9 with up to 32 hours of battery life and INZONE H7with up to 40 hours of battery life, along with a wired headset, the INZONE H3. All three models are equipped with a flexible flip-up boom microphone with mute function, allowing users to communicate effortlessly in-game with squad members.

Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound for Gaming activated by the INZONE Hub PC software reproduces spatial sound out of multi-channel audio signals as the game creators intended. This accurate sound reproduction boosts spatial awareness, enabling the player to precisely hear footsteps and movements. Additionally, with the smartphone app “360 Spatial Sound Personalizer,” headset users can get the spatial sound optimised to their ear shape for truly personalised gameplay. 

Developed from Sony’s expertise in headphone technology, the diaphragms of the INZONE H9 and INZONE H7 both have a unique shape that allow the headphones to reproduce extremely high frequency sounds with high compliance, as well as authentic low frequencies for an immersive gaming experience.

Ducts on the housing of the INZONE H9, INZONE H7 and INZONE H3 control and optimise low-frequency sound reproduction for powerful bass that makes deep sounds seem incredibly real.

The wide, soft headband cushion spreads the weight evenly across the player’s head for long-term wearing comfort. The earpads are shaped to minimise pressure on the player’s ears by optimising contact with the side of their head.

From noisy heaters and PC fans, to loud construction work outside, INZONE H9 has multiple noise-canceling microphones that keep out any performance disturbing noise. To further the gaming experience, Sony has incorporated the same Dual Noise Sensor Technology used in the Industry-Leading 1000X series headphones for invincible gaming. Users will never miss important ambient sounds such as a phone call, the doorbell ringing or a partner speaking while playing games with Ambient Sound Mode.

The INZONE M9 monitor provides Auto HDR Tone Mapping, which works with PlayStation5 consoles to automatically recognise the monitor during initial setup and optimizes HDR settings. Additionally, the monitor will automatically switch to Cinema Mode when watching movies on PlayStation5 and Game Mode when playing games. INZONE H9 and INZONE H7 include on-screen indication, so players can easily adjust settings on their headset and see the settings reflected on the screen in the PlayStation5 Control Center, along with gaming and chat balance, allowing players to change the volume balance between game audio and voice chat from the headset. It also comes packed with features including the ability to work with Tempest 3D Audio Tech, which allows players to enjoy the immersive sounds when gaming with greater spatial expression.

Sony’s INZONE Hub PC software was created to control INZONE monitors and headsets, allowing users to personalise experiences by customising a wide range of operations, including a variety of sound and picture settings.

The headset’s packaging material of Sony’s products is plastic-free (excluding coating and adhesive materials) and uses only recycled materials and non-woven cellulose, reflecting Sony’s commitment to keeping the environmental in mind with its products.
