The much-awaited Xperia Z, touted as offering the best of Sony in a smartphone, will launch in the Philippines with an exciting range of accessories that promise to enhance the model's core advantages.

Among the wide range of accessories are NFC-enabled devices that feature Sony's One Touch technology, enabling users to experience the power of the perfect pairing with gadgets like the Xperia Z.

Featuring the premium dynamic sound of Sony and HD voice-ready capacity, this NFC-enabled headset offers impressive value for money and seamless One Touch connectivity.
