Gaming Monitors Overview

The all new INZONE M9 gaming monitor with HDR offers 4K resolution 3 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.

Designed to Fit for Unique Playing Styles

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 4 .

Utilities for Gameplay

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 Equalizer feature allows for uncovering details even in shadows.

Gaming Headsets Overview

The new line will feature two new wireless headsets, the INZONE H9 with up to 32 hours of battery life 5 and INZONE H7 with up to 40 hours of battery life 6 , 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.

Take Action First with Precise Target Detection

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 intended1 2 . 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 optimized to their ear shape for truly personalized gameplay 7 .

Advanced Technology Optimizes Acoustics

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 optimize low-frequency sound reproduction for powerful bass that makes deep sounds seem incredibly real.

Game for Hours in Comfort

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

Noise Canceling and Ambient Sound Mode

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.

Interoperability for Better Gameplay

Perfect for PlayStation®5

The INZONE M9 monitor provides Auto HDR Tone Mapping 8 , which works with PlayStation®5 consoles to automatically recognize the monitor during initial setup and optimizes HDR settings. Additionally, the monitor will automatically switch to Cinema Mode when watching movies on PlayStation®5 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 PlayStation®5 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.

I NZONE Hub PC Software: Personalize Your Gameplay
