Sony’s Next Generation XBA Headphones Delivers

Music with Soul-Shaking Clarity

  (SINGAPORE, 02 January 2013) – Sony is introducing the second generation of its popular XBA range of in-ear headphones, with gold and silver colour variations to cater to consumers’ individual lifestyle wants.

The new XBA headphones feature the same micro-sized Balanced Armature (BA) drivers that are optimised for music enjoyment and double-layered housing that prevents unwanted vibrations for crystal clear mid-high range audio reproduction. In addition, the new range of XBA in-ear headphones now come with a high quality, PCOCC grain-free and oxygen-free copper cable wiring that minimises sound transmission loss as well as a serrated anti-friction tangle-free cord for music lovers who deal with the constant challenge of messily stored wires.

For consumers who use their iPhones as their digital music players, Sony has also created “iP” versions of the new generation of XBA earphones that offer the convenience to remotely control the functions of the digital music players while talking hands-free.

The new range of XBA in-ear headphones are available now from all Sony stores and authorised outlets.
