Unveiled at SXSW: Sony’s futuristic Concept N headphones

Sony’s newly formed R&D outfit Future Lab showed off its first concept prototype at SXSW this year: a pair of headphones worn around the neck that directs audio upwards so only you can hear it. Showcasing the prototype to press, the wearable ‘Concept N’ technology is built for hands-free operation with four microphones built in with noise-cancelling features to relay commands. More than an audio device, integrating with your smart-phone it uses GPS to provide location-based information, tell you the weather, give you local news and even use a tiny embedded camera to take photos – reimagining headphones for a versatile and connected world, and way cooler than the Sound Wig.
