Sony delivers all-new Extra Bass headphone range
Sony has updated its headphone range in the US to include several new models, all tuned to deliver extra bass response. Three new models, the MDR-XB400, MDR-XB600 and MDR-XB80 are all on-ear types. It has also added a new in-ear earphone model, the MDR-XB60EX that also delivers extra bass response.
The new on-ear headphones all incorporate Sony’s newly developed ‘Advanced Direct Vibe Structure’ to deliver the punchier bottom-end. Additionally the MDR-XB800 and the MDR-XB600 headphones have been designed for comfort over extended listening sessions, with designs that utilize soft pressure-relieving ear cushions that also provide an effective acoustic seal. These deliver high levels of passive noise-cancellation as well as enhance the overall bass response.
The in-ear MDR-XB60EX also incorporates Sony’s ‘Advanced Direct Vibe Structure’ for added bass response. They also utilize over-size 13.5mm drivers providing a solid foundation for a fatter sound. Hybrid silicone rubber earbuds are also supplied in four sizes along with three sizes of Sony’s noise isolation ear buds as well as a carry pouch.
The new Sony Extra Bass headphones are available now and range in price from $60 through to $150.
