■Please tell us your impressions of the new “Xperia 5 V”!
AYAKA: When you take a photo with the Xperia 5 V, it seems like you can take the scenery as you see it with your own eyes without any processing, and I’m happy because I like to preserve that moment. I think the cuteness will stand out.
RIO: Thank you (lol) The battery drains quickly when I watch videos for a long time. I take a lot of photos with the members, so I think it’s difficult to carry around batteries and outlets, so I think it’s a good thing that the battery lasts for a long time in order to reduce the amount of luggage I carry. .
■Please tell us your impressions of “LinkBuds S”!
RIKU: I think “LinkBuds S” is convenient because you can switch between a mode where you can hear surrounding sounds and noise cancellation with one tap.
NINA: I’ve always been very particular about how that kind of music should sound, and I’ve tried a lot of different things, but the sound quality of the LinkBuds S really struck me as good. It sounds great at any pitch. I think sometimes only the intermediate sounds can be heard clearly, but with the LinkBuds S, I can listen to music the way I like without any stress, so I think this is the best. I did.
MIIHI: I’ve been shooting with the LinkBuds S for a long time, and I’m not the type who doesn’t like earphones to begin with, but they’re very light and fit well in my ears, so I’m comfortable wearing them for long periods of time now. So, I really want to use it a lot in my future life and while traveling.
■The theme of this commercial is “You never know when the moment you want to fall in love with it will come.” Have you ever felt the same way?
MAKO: When it comes to live shows on SNS, I don’t know when they will start, so I often think, oh, I missed it…
RIMA: I’ve been doing this a lot since I was a student, and I’m really happy when there are people online who can help me study. For example, there are people who upload videos of themselves studying for six hours straight, and sometimes you can watch them in real time. AYAKA: Huh.
RIMA: Then, when I was like, “Oh, this person is studying right now,” I felt lucky because I could study with him.
MAYA: When NiziU content goes up, I think, “The content has gone up. I have to see it, I have to see it.” At times like that, I think that I would love to see it on the Xperia 5 V, and I would like to see it myself. The content is so exciting that I find myself immersed in it. When I laugh at something I say or when I see something funny about other members, I feel like I love NiziU again.
MAYUKA: My member MAKO-chan does a live stream once a week called “Mako’s 1 Frame,” but she often does it without us, so we just watch it on our smartphones. At that time, I would like to use the “Xperia 5 V” and “LinkBuds S” to feel closer to the live broadcast while watching it.
