Featuring a full-range driver plus woofer for enhanced bass with impressive depth, step up to an incredible listening experience with these XBA-2iP Balanced Armature in-ear headphones. These premium headphones sport Sony's newly developed Balanced Armature driver units precision engineered to optimize your music—plus a convenient in-line remote with built-in mic to control your compatible iPhone®, iPod® or iPad® for easy listening and hands-free calls.
Designed for discerning audiophiles, XBA Series in-ear headphones are outfitted with Sony's newly developed Balanced Armature driver units engineered for crisp, balanced sound of incredible depth and precision. Infused with premium audio technology, even the most subtle musical nuances are delivered with tremendous clarity and detail.
Compared to conventional dynamic drivers, two Balanced Armature drivers (full range and woofer) deliver crystal-clear vocals and profound bass. Plus, these micro-sized drivers are meticulously pre-tuned by Sony engineers to reproduce a balanced high to low frequency response and emphasize key sound characteristics to enhance your music.
Take, make or end calls—or skip to the next track of your playlist—using the in-line remote with built-in mic. With full integration for your iPhone, iPod and iPad, controlling your music is a breeze. Activate the VoiceOver mode with the simple press of a button, and your iPod will even tell you what song you're listening to (enabled devices only)1.
A specially made inner housing constructed of high strength magnesium holds the driver units rigidly in place for super smooth frequency response. Enclosed in an ABS outer housing that suppresses unwanted vibrations, this innovative double layer design delivers crystal-clear mid to high range sound and overall crisp, rich audio.
Because Balanced Armature drivers sport an ultra compact design for a smaller overall form factor, they slip easily inside the ear for a snug, more natural-feeling fit. The result? Reduced ambient noise and long lasting comfort and wearability—even after hours of non-stop listening.
Lock in the sounds of your favorite songs, and block out disruptive background noise. Because Sony XBA Series in-ear headphones boast a noise-blocking design and a snug, comfortable fit, they prevent sound leakage—both in and out of the ear—so you can enjoy your music without annoying your neighbor, and get lost in a distraction-free listening experience.
Balanced Armature XBA-2IP in-ear headphones masterfully mix a micro-sized full range driver with an additional woofer to add a rich layer of depth and soul to every track. Get super smooth frequency response thanks to the double layer design that encloses a special magnesium inner housing inside an ABS outer housing made for suppressing unwanted vibrations. Keep ambient noise at bay thanks to a naturally noise blocking design that lets you listen for longer after you've found just the right fit from the 7 included ear cushion options. Forget constantly fussing with your iPod, iPad or iPhone to switch tracks, make or take a call, or simply adjust the volume—an in-line remote with built-in mic makes everything a snap1. Traveling carry pouch included.
Compared to conventional Dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers reproduce a smooth, broad, and even frequency response with notable vocal clarity. Sony® Balanced Armature drivers can even be tuned for higher or lower frequency response as well as combined to emphasize certain sound characteristics.
The simple press of a button activates VoiceOver mode, where the iPod® states the name of the currently playing song or playlist (on enabled devices) 1.
Sony® XBA-Series earbuds afford a comfortable fit that also results in significantly lower sound leakage levels both in or out, allowing you uninterrupted access to your music.
A carrying case is included to keep your headphones protected while traveling.
Full integration for iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®.1 The in-line remote gives you volume and track controls (Play, Stop, Next/Prior) for iPod, iPhone or iPad, and the built-in microphone makes it easy to take calls through it all.
The smaller size of the Balanced Armature (BA) driver allows a design that creates a better fit inside the ear. This attenuates outside sounds better than headphones with Dynamic drivers, resulting in a superior listening experience.
Noise isolation earbuds (Included: Small, Medium, and Large) not only provide an outstanding fit, but utilize pressure relieving urethane foam to further reduce ambient noise.
Newly developed micro-size driver units (full-range + woofer) reproduce smooth and clear vocals and rich, powerful bass. Get reacquainted with your favorite music?
A special, high strength magnesium inner housing provides necessary rigidity for smooth frequency response while an ABS outer housing suppresses vibrations for clear mid-high range sound reproduction.
Hybrid silicone earbuds, in 4 sizes, allow for a tailored fit that further maximizes overall sound quality and comfort.
