SONY Float Run (Sony WIOE610/B) adopts a unique lightweight earhook and backhook design, which can better balance the weight distribution of earhooks and backhooks, with a weight of only 31.8g. The wide contact surface design of the earhook effectively disperses the pressure on the ear, bringing a comfortable and stable wearing effect. The sound unit is suspended next to the ear canal when worn, and it is not in the ear to avoid ear canal extrusion and stethoscope effect, and it is still comfortable to listen to after long-term wearing.
In terms of internal structure configuration, it is equipped with a 16mm large-size dynamic driver to make up for the audio damage of open listening and provide a more natural and open audio effect. The left earhook cavity has a built-in lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 130mAh, which comes from VDL. Equipped with a circuit protection board responsible for battery overcharge, overdischarge, overcurrent and other protection functions.
The main board unit is installed in the right earhook, which uses Realtek RTL8763BFS bluetooth audio SoC and supports Bluetooth 5.0. Built-in 32-bit ARM processor and 24-bit DSP, supports analog and digital microphone input, and integrates lithium battery charging management. It is also equipped with an electret microphone for voice pickup.
