Like him or not, Simon Cowell knows music. His show, The X Factor, has been a catalyst for bringing undiscovered music to the masses. Now he has worked with Sony to develop headphones that are certain to draw attention for their striking looks and booming sound. The X headphones deliver powerful bass response for impactful sound that will ramp up the rhythm to keep you listening and moving. They may make you rethink just how low headphones can go.
The MDR-X10's benefits go beyond big sound. The flat cable minimizes tangles and is detachable, with an innovative, twist and lock feature to ensure the cable doesn't get pulled out. And the in-line remote lets you control your iPod, iPhone or iPad's music playback and volume with ease. The remote's built-in microphone is made for hands-free phone calls on your iPhone, and the remote provides volume and talk control as well for easy switching between calls and music. There's also a second standard miniplug cable included.
If it's not your music, you don't want to hear it
Though it may look like an around-the-ear headphone, the X10 actually fits on your ears, with thick foam earpads resting gently against your ears for a comfortable fit. The large earpads and flexible headband conform to your head's shape to provide excellent isolation from outside noise. Your music will be front and center when you listen, with external distractions effectively silenced for a highly involving listening experience.
The Sony MDR-X10 headphones feature a unique locking miniplug and jack to ensure your cable stays plugged in as you move about.
