New Sony Headphones Pack Punch

By Mendelson Tiu | Tuesday | 02/12/2008

Sony has unveiled a new range of headphones that promises to deliver smoother vibrations and full bass sound.

The Sony MDR-XB eXtra Bass range includes two in-ear and three overhead headphone models that all feature a tightly sealed acoustic design to produce a high level of sound isolation and bass.

The company claims that the newly designed direct vibe structure of the headphones provides a full bass sound without sacrificing the mids and highs. And with a significantly larger frequency response than other headphone models, the eXtra Bass Headphones provide an audible range larger than that of the human ears (approximately 20 - 20,000 kHz), meaning that you get an incredibly deep sound filled with detail.

Sony's Product Manager for Personal Audio, Suzanna Gan said, "The eXtra Bass series of headphones feature a newly developed long stroke diaphragm that delivers smoother vibrations for music lovers. With both in-ear and overhead styles in the range, there is a bass boosting option for everyone who is serious about the quality of sound in their headphones."

The Sony MDRXB20EX and MDRXB40EX in-ear eXtra Bass Headphones both feature a lightweight design and flat cord. The MDRXB20EX headphones include an angled ear-bud, 9mm high sensitivity dome driver unit and a frequency response of 5 - 23,000Hz, while the MDRXB40EX headphones showcase a vertical in-ear bud, 13.5mm dome driver and a frequency response of 4 - 24,000Hz.

The MDRXB300, MDRXB500 and MDRXB700 headphones boast king sized cushioning for ease of wear and sound preservation. The headphone structure enhances the acoustic sealed construction to deliver a high grade of isolation and clear sound.

The MDRXB300 headphones feature a 30mm dome driver unit, a 30mm thick cushion and a frequency response of 5 - 22,000Hz; the MDRXB500 headphones feature a 40mm dome driver unit, a 45mm thick cushion and a frequency response of 4 - 24,000Hz frequency; and finally the MDRXB700 headphones feature a 50mm dome driver unit, a 50mm thick cushion and a frequency response of 3 - 28,000Hz.
