New Sony headphones

Sony has introduced two new sets of headphones intended for portable music players. At the top end is the MDR-Q68LW, which has an output of 108dB/mW, and can span frequencies between 16Hz and 24KHz. The earpieces weigh only 1.5 ounces, and are also just 0.6 inches thick. Slightly less powerful is the Q38LW, producing 104dB/mW and cutting off the bottom frequenies at 20Hz. It is even lighter however at 1.3 ounces, and comes in six different color combinations. The 68LW also comes in six versions (black, white, silver, blue, red and cream), but only features black trim, instead of the red, white and orange options with the 38LW. Buttons on each of the sets will recoil the audio cable automatically. Prices were unavailable at press time. [Via Akihabara News]
