Sony Unveils Innovative HT-AX7: A Versatile Soundbar with Rear Speakers for Mobile Devices
Sony has taken the consumer audio market by surprise with the introduction of their latest product, the HT-AX7. This unique device combines the functionality of a soundbar with rear speakers, specifically designed for use with mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. With its compact size and advanced audio technologies, Sony aims to deliver an immersive sound experience for on-the-go entertainment. Let’s delve into the details of this portable theater system that has been generating buzz among audio enthusiasts.
In an unexpected move, Sony has launched the HT-AX7, a Bluetooth-enabled portable speaker that boasts an intriguing feature set. The most distinctive aspect of this device is the inclusion of two upward-firing satellite speakers, resembling muffins in size, which can be positioned on top of the main soundbar. This configuration allows the HT-AX7 to function as both a soundbar and rear speakers for your mobile devices.
While the HT-AX7 operates solely on Bluetooth connectivity and lacks physical connections apart from the USB-C charging port, Sony’s proprietary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology takes the audio experience to the next level. By leveraging this technology, the device can upconvert stereo signals in real-time, providing a surround sound-like experience when the satellite speakers are placed approximately one meter behind the listener. Although it does not support Dolby Atmos, the immersive audio quality is commendable.
