Dual Balanced Armature Drivers: The Sony XBA Series in-ear
headphones (XBA-3iP) are outfitted with Sony's newly developed Balanced Armature
driver units engineered for crisp, balanced sound of incredible depth and
precision. Infused with premium audio technology, even the most subtle musical
nuances are delivered with tremendous clarity and detail. Meticulously pre-tuned
by Sony engineers, four Balanced Armature driver units (full-range, tweeter,
woofer, and super woofer) reproduce a broad, finely balanced range of sound;
from soaring highs to bellowing bass, and everything in between. Plus, these
micro-sized drivers are engineered to emphasize key sound characteristics to
enhance your music.
Double Layer Housing: A specially made inner housing constructed of
liquid crystal polymer holds the driver units rigidly in place for super smooth
frequency response. Enclosed in an ABS outer housing that suppresses unwanted
vibrations, this innovative double layer design delivers crystal-clear mid to
high range sound and overall crisp, rich audio.
Noise Isolation Design: Because Balanced Armature drivers sport an
ultra compact design for a smaller overall form factor, they slip easily inside
the ear for a snug, more natural-feeling fit. The result is reduced ambient
noise and limited sound leakage.
Multiple Ear Tips: The Sony XBA Series in-ear headphones come
sizes of silicone ear tips (ss/s/m/l) and 3 size of silicone/foam ear tips
(s/m/l) to ensure a tailored fit that further
maximizes overall sound quality and comfort.
In-Line Remote + Mic: The in-line remote gives you volume and track controls
(Play, Stop, Next/Previous) for your iPod, iPhone, or iPad; and the built-in
microphone makes it easy to take calls from your iPhone. A simple press of a button activates VoiceOver
mode, allowing your Apple device to state the name of the currently playing song
or playlist. Apple device compatibility as of 8/16/2012:
|iPod Model||Generation||Tested Version||Audio Output||In-Line Remote||In-Line Mic|
Answer/End Call||Voice Control||Hands-Free Communication|
Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change
functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may
need to reset your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't
work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.
Headphone Cable w/ 3.5mm Connector: The Sony XBA-3iP in-ear headphones
feature an attached 48" audio cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector.
An included clothing clip and cord adjuster help prevent the cable from moving
around too much and tangling up.
Carrying Case: The Sony XBA-3iP comes with hard carrying
store and transport the headphones.
