Fans of Sony’s Xperia Ear Duo, rejoice! The unique wireless headset just became even smarter, thanks to a new software upgrade available for all Android and iOS users.

Xperia Ear Duo already lets you hear your music and the environment around you simultaneously, whilst the volume automatically adjusts depending on your surroundings. To make your listening experience even better, the latest update sees the introduction of a new function, Dynamic Normalizer, meaning that you can increase the volume of their audio sources, which have a naturally lower volume, enabling you to enjoy music or radio even in noisy environments.
