The triple balanced armature advantage
Each of the XBA-3iP's earbuds houses three drivers: a full-range driver for overall clarity, a woofer for powerful bass impact, and a tweeter to make high frequencies shine. How does Sony fit them all into a small, comfortable in-ear 'phone? By using balanced armature technology. Unlike dynamic drivers in typical headphones, the XBA-3iP's precision-tuned drivers each employ a pivoting magnetic arm to generate crystal-clear sound. Three drivers mean more detail, better performance for high and low frequencies, and new life from your favorite tunes.
Great sound that fits
Think three drivers means a big headphone? Not with balanced armature drivers. Each of the XBA-3iP's micro drivers are fine-tuned by Sony engineers to ensure that small size equals robust sound, while fitting comfortably in your ear. An assortment of interchangeable ear tips ensures a snug fit that keeps noise out and your music in.
Remotely control your iPod® or iPhone®
Control your iPod or iPhone without even touching it. The XBA-3iP's cord features a built-in remote, giving you easy volume and track control. The remote's built-in microphone lets you seamlessly make and answer calls while your iPhone remains safely nestled in your pocket or bag. The remote also supports Apple VoiceOver, allowing compatible iPods to tell you title and artist info for the current track.
