Combining Simon Cowell's expertise seeking perfection in music with Sony's legendary audio engineering, the new X Headphones offer music lovers the truest sound reproduction along with the utmost in style and quality.
The premium X Headphones were engineered with an enhanced acoustic configuration for a high level of noise isolation and exceptional bass response. Featuring precision 50mm drivers, they deliver a rich, full-range audio experience that's ideal for all popular music genres.
With their pressure-relieving memory foam ear pads, the X Headphones conform to each listener's unique ear shape, providing a highly effective acoustic seal. Besides reinforcing the headphones' powerful sub-bass reproduction capability, the ear pads deliver a supportive, wrap-around feel, ideal for long-term wearing comfort.
The X Headphones were designed to look as great as they perform. Sporting aluminum headbands, swivel mechanisms and end caps, they project an image that's as strong and solid as their sound.
Their dual folding style allows the user to swivel the noise isolating ear pads for listening flexibility, as well as conveniently fold the headphones for hassle-free portability. Once folded, they easily slip into their included carrying case.
Featuring grooved serrations on its surface, the X Headphones' detachable cord provides an innovative design that eliminates friction between cable surfaces, reducing the incidence of frustrating tangles. For iPod®, iPhone® and iPad® users, the X Headphones include an Apple® 3-button control with a microphone, track, and volume control functionality.
The X Headphones are available at Sony Stores online, in Sony Stores from September 15th, and other authorized retailers nationwide by the end of the month for $299.
