Sony Is Launching A New Peripheral Brand; Targeting PC Gamers

Better late than never

Sony has gone all-in for supporting the PC platform. porting fan favourites, like Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Bloodborne God of War (2018), the platform holder has made it clear that PC is not a competitor, but rather a companion. If their focus on PC needed to be any clearer, their latest move has made it so.

Sony Electronics is launching a brand to create gaming gear/peripherals named INZONE, and this time their main focus is on the PC market. The brand has been in the works since before the pandemic, all the way back in 2019.

The name of the brand is intended to denote gamers being “in the zone.”

The plan for INZONE is to allow Sony to compete in the PC market with “competitive prices,” including a 4K 144Hz monitor, and a cheaper 1080p 240Hz monitor for those that value extremely high refresh rates over resolution.

The current product stack is as follows:

Headphones

  • INZONE H3: A Wired gaming headset that features support for 360° spatial sound. – A$149.95
  • INZONE H7: A Wireless gaming headset that features dual connectivity, 40-hour battery life, and 360° spatial sound. – A$349.95
  • INZONE H9: A Wireless gaming headset that features Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), dual connectivity, 32-hour battery life, 360° spatial sound, and a 10-minute quick charge. – A$449.95

Monitors

  • INZONE M3: 27″, 1920×1080 resolution, 240Hz refresh rate, 1000:1 contrast, 1ms response time, HDR 400, and a 99% sRGB colour gamut. – A$765
  • INZONE M9: 27″, 4K resolution (3840×2160), 144Hz refresh rate, full-array local dimming, 1000:1 contrast, 1ms response time, HDR 600, and a 95% DCI-P3 colour gamut. – A$1300

Both of these new monitors feature a KVM switch, allowing users to switch and control their connected devices from the one set of peripherals.

There are some features that are exclusive to the PS5, including Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode, but it’s unlikely that these will be a dealbreaker. Both monitors also sport 2x HDMI 2.1 inputs, 1x DisplayPort 1.4 input, 3x USB 3.2 Gen1 inputs, and a USB 2.0 port for USB HUB functionality.

What are your thoughts on INZONE? Will you pick up one of the headsets or a monitor when they’re available? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
