Sony’s NFC-powered wireless audio ecosystem, from tiny orbs to huge boomboxes

At Sony’s CES 2013 press conference yesterday, the company unveiled an expansive line-up of NFC-powered wireless audio solutions. To take advantage of the one-touch NFC pairing feature, you’ll need one of Sony’s XPeria phones, but any Bluetooth device can pair up to the speakers. 

The NFC-enabled audio line-up involves tiny personal orb-shaped speakers (with built-in speakerphone) several portable Bluetooth speakers, some in-ear headphones, over-ear headphones, a sound bar, all-in-one home theater system, a giant boombox, a sound bar and a specialized remote control for select Bravia televisions. 

Above is a gallery of close-up photos showing the NFC audio devices and below is our video with a brief explanation of how the one-touch pairing system works.
