Sony has just announced the launch of several new headphones to suit the needs of music lovers and audio enthusiasts.
The wireless MDR-ZX750BN from Sony comes with Bluetooth™, Near-Field Communications and Digital Noise Cancelling features, designed for those who prefer to enjoy their music tangle-free and without any disturbances. It uses a pair of microphones to pick up ambient surrounding sounds and cancels it with an inverse “Anti-Noise” sound wave, so that your music experience is free from noises emitted from airplane engines, trains and even the daily office chatter. Additionally, the MDR-ZX750BN is slim and can be easily folded to be stored into any bag, and has pressure relieving earpads for extended comfort on long commutes, ideal for those who have to travel to far-out areas such as Tuas for work.
The MDR-XB70AP and MDR-XB50AP in-ear headphones were created for music lovers who favour listening to music loud and with a heavy bass. They feature 12mm driver units to deliver the same level of acoustic sensitivity that has become synonymous with Sony, and neodymium magnets for powerful sound quality. The headphones also come with hybrid silicone rubber earbuds that minimise audio leakage while maximising comfort, and their tangle-free serrated cords ensure that they do not get jumbled up with other items in the bag.
The three new headphones will be available at all Sony stores and authorised outlets from 07 March 2014 onwards at the following prices:
Recommended Retail Price for Sony Headphones
MDR-ZX750BN – S$249
MDR-XB70AP – S$109
