Compared to conventional Dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers produce a broad and even frequency response with notable vocal clarity. SONY Balanced Armature drivers are tuned for higher or lower frequency response and combined to emphasize certain sound characteristics.
Balanced Armature Driver
Newly developed micro-size driver units (full-range + woofer) reproduce smooth and clear vocals and rich, powerful bass. Get reacquainted with your favorite music?
Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad
Full integration for iPod, iPhone and iPad. The in-line remote gives you volume and track controls (Play, Stop, Next/Prior) for iPod, iPhone or iPad, and the built-in microphone makes it easy to take calls through it all.
The simple press of a button activates VoiceOver mode where the iPod states the name of the currently playing song or playlist (on enabled devices).
Double Layer Housing
A special, high strength magnesium inner housing provides necessary rigidity for smooth frequency response while an ABS outer housing suppresses vibrations for clear mid-high range sound reproduction.
The smaller size of Balanced Armature (BA) in-ear headphones allows a design that creates a better fit inside the ear. This attenuates outside sounds better than headphones with Dynamic drivers, resulting in a superior listening experience.
Noise Blocking Design
Sony Balanced Armature (BA) in-ear headphones afford a comfortable fit that also results in significantly lower sound leakage levels both in or out, allowing you uninterrupted access to your music.
Hybrid silicone earbuds, in 4 sizes, allow for a tailored fit that further maximizes overall sound quality and comfort.
Noise isolation earbuds (Included: Small, Medium, and Large) not only provide an outstanding fit, but utilize pressure relieving urethane foam to further reduce ambient noise.
