HD Hybrid 3-way Drivers: The Sony XBA-H3 in-ear
headphones are equipped with Sony's HD Hybrid 3-way driver unit, which includes
a 16mm dynamic driver and two Balanced Armature drivers. The rigid, lightweight
aluminum diaphragm of the HD Super Tweeter delivers the ultra high frequency
sound, while the Liquid Crystal Polymer Film diaphragm on the dynamic driver
provides the needed rigidity and internal loss for balanced and accurate sound
reproduction. These drivers deliver brilliant highs and clear, deep bass for
musical enjoyment over the entire frequency range.
Beat Response Control: Today's high energy music with its
driving bass notes is demanding for in-ear headphones. The XBA-H3's Beat
Response Control is a special acoustic design that helps control airflow and
diaphragm movement to give you tight, deep bass response.
Vibration Suppression Housing: Each driver is placed into a
single suppression housing. The housing material suppresses unwanted vibrations
to reproduce crystal clear sound.
Multiple Ear Tips: The Sony XBA-H3s come
with two types of silicone ear tips in multiple sizes to ensure a comfortable
and secure fit. There are four
sizes of Hybrid Silicone ear tips (SS/S/M/L) that maximize the overall sound
quality and comfort. In addition, three sizes of Noise Isolation ear tips
(S/M/L), made with silicone and urethane foam, provide a measure of ambient
noise reduction to shut out distractions from your surroundings.
Detachable Cords: The headphones come with two 47"
detachable cords with proprietary connectors at the ear bud. Both cables feature
soft Teknorote-coated silicone ear hangers that allow for a secure and custom
fit that's easily adjustable. Each tangle-free cord has an adjustable cinch, and
is terminated with a right-angled 3.5mm miniplug that fits into most smart
devices, even with a hard case. You can choose between the following cables:
- Smartphone Cord: This cable includes an in-line
microphone/one-button remote that is compatible with most smartphones. The
one-button remote lets you play/pause your music, and answer/end calls,
while the built-in microphone lets you make hands-free calls. With the
downloadable SmartKey app for Android, you can customize the functionality
of the in-line remote.
- Audio Cord: This cable is for audio listening only--no
in-line remote or microphone.
Included Accessories: The Sony XBA-H3 comes a clothing clip
and a convenient cord winder to adjust the length of the cable. The headphones
include a semi-hard carrying
store and transport the headphones and all its accessories.
