Sony to take on Google Home with its new voice-controlled speaker


Sony has introduced a range of new products at the IFA tech tradeshow in Berlin including noise-cancelling earphones, Bluetooth voice-controlled speakers and stunning new 4K HDR home theatre projectors.

The company unveiled an impressive line-up of products to please the music and movie loving customers who have an eye for high-quality content.


We’ve heard of Sony’s noise-cancelling headphones but take a look at the noise cancelling wire free earphones.

The WF-1000X have no cables whatsoever and each earbud utilises the company’s industry leading noise-cancellation technology to reduce ambient noise and allow you to focus on the music.


And all without being tangled up in a cable. They will be priced at $399.95 when they are released in October.



This is Sony’s answer to Google Home –  it’s a voice-controlled speaker that lets you find information, complete tasks and tap into your smart home ecosystem just by talking.

The 360-degree speaker uses Google Assistant and serves as the digital hub in your home.

Of course, you can also ask it to play your favourite music.


The LF-S50G is due in stores in December. It will be available in blue, black and white.

And being released in December, the Sony LF-S50G is expected to go head-to-head with Apple’s highly anticipated HomePod.


Sony has expanded its family of 4K HDR home theatre projectors with some impressive new additions.

The amazing new projectors deliver cinema-like quality in your home with image quality that must be seen to be believed.
