The Japanese company's new hearable shows plenty of promise, but the Xperia Ear still feels like it's in beta, rather than a fully fledged device.
PROS
Great look and feel; Lightweight construction; Good battery life
CONS
Assistant functionality erratic; Audio quality poor at times; A bit pricey
VERDICT
Is the Xperia ear the hearable we most want at the moment? No, but it is certainly a good start for Sony and their range of impending IoT-focused accessories and devices. The main issue at the moment, however, is that it still feels very much like a prototype or concept offering, stuck in beta until the small niggles get sorted out.
