When you're on the go, don't let external noise get in the way of great sound. Sony's XBA-NC85D noise-canceling headphones offer digital noise reduction in a small, comfortable earbud. These tiny noise-cancelers automatically choose the right level of noise reduction for your environment, be it a plane, train, or office. One push of the in-line power button lets the outside world melt away as your music takes center stage.
Think noise-canceling headphones have to be bulky? Not with Sony's balanced armature technology. Unlike dynamic drivers in typical headphones, the XBA-NC85D's precision-tuned micro drivers use a pivoting magnetic arm to generate crystal-clear sound in a compact earbud. This allows room in the earpieces for Sony's noise-cancelation circuitry, giving you powerful noise reduction in a remarkably small headphone.
USB charging for hours of listening
You won't need extra batteries for these noise-canceling 'phones. The XBA-NC85D features a tiny built-in rechargeable battery. Just plug the headphones into the included pocket-sized USB adapter, plug the adapter into your computer's USB jack, and charging has begun. An indicator light lets you know exactly when your headphones are fully charged and ready for up to 20 hours of listening.
