Your Xperia Ear is easy to talk to — it listens and reacts, just like in a normal conversation. Ask it to perform a task or give you some information and it will deliver what you need, straight into your ear. Xperia Ear is engineered with intuitive gesture sensitivity. With an integrated proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer, it knows if it’s in your ear, not in use or in its charging case, and reacts accordingly. You can even use a nod of the head to confirm a command.
Your Xperia Ear knows when you’ve placed it in your ear, and will automatically turn on to deliver the latest updates. By using simple head gestures, you can give your Xperia Ear a command without making a sound
