Overview: The Sony MDR-X10 headphones combine style,
comfort, and performance. The headphones have a stylish silver, red, and white
design with ultra soft ear pads and headband. The X10s have large 50mm drivers
with strong neodymium magnets, which provide a wide frequency response. The
headphones come with two tangle-free flat cables, one with an in-line
remote/microphone. When not in use, the headphones fold up for storage in the
supplied soft vinyl zippered pouch.
Cables: The bright red flat cables have a serrated finish
that reduces tangles. One end plugs into the left ear cup and twist-locks into
place. The other end has a 3.5mm miniplug, with a removable 1/4" adapter for
listening to your home components. One of the cables has an in-line
remote/microphone and a right-angled plug optimized for use with your
Remote/Microphone: The 3-button remote/microphone allows you
to raise and lower the volume, and the center button can control your phone
calls or music. The microphone is located on the opposite side of the 3 remote
buttons. The remote/mic is only 4" away from the left ear cup, so you don't have
to fumble with a long cable to find it. During music playback and phone calls,
the control function is determined by the number of center button presses:
- One Press: Pause/Play; Answer/Hang Up
- Two Presses: Skip to next track
- Three Presses: Skip to previous track
- Press and Hold: "Voice Over" feature (such as the
iPhone's Siri), if available
Compatibility: The remote control is "Made for iPod, iPhone,
and iPad", which means that it is certified to meet Apple performance standards.
