Sporting three specialized Sony Balanced Armature driver units—a full-range driver, woofer and tweeter—slip into a dramatic, full-bodied soundscape of sublimely soaring highs and profound lows. Engineered especially for audiophiles and music lovers alike, rediscover every note of your favorite songs delivered with remarkable balance, richness and clarity. Plus, a convenient in-line remote with built-in mic means you can 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.
Sporting three Balanced Armature drivers (full range, woofer and tweeter), these XBA-3iP in-ear headphones deliver a full-bodied spectrum of sound rounded out by perky highs and profound lows. Meticulously pre-tuned by Sony engineers, these micro-sized drivers reproduce a balanced high to low frequency response, and even emphasize key sound characteristics to enhance your music.
Take, make or end phone 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.
Sure to put a smile on the face of any audiophile, Balanced Armature in-ear headphones with micro-sized full range driver, added woofer and extra tweeter make for decadent depths, melodious mids and heightened highs. Super smooth frequency response is made possible by a double layer design that encloses the special magnesium inner housing inside an ABS outer housing perfect for suppressing unwanted vibrations. Take your pick from 7 pairs of ear cushions for just the right fit and listen for longer since the natural noise blocking design puts the kibosh on annoying distractions. Make your iPod, iPad or iPhone switch tracks, turn down the volume, take calls and more with the in-line remote and built-in mic1. Travel carrying 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 provide 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 an improved fit inside the ear for better, long-term comfort. 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 + tweeter) deliver smooth and clear vocals with rich, powerful bass and detailed high frequencies. Get reacquainted with your favorite music.
It’s in the details? 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.
