Sony just released their newest addition to the X Headphone line, the on-ear MDR-X05. These new headphones deliver music lovers a premium Sony audio experience in a more compact and lightweight design. Together in collaboration with one of the world’s leading record producers, Simon Cowell and Sony Music Entertainment, the new X05 delivers killer sound reproduction in an aggressive, stylish design.
The MDR-X05 headphones are engineered with an efficient acoustic design, and feature precision 40mm drivers for a crisp, full-range audio experience that optimally reproduces today’s bass-heavy music. With their pressure-relieving memory foam ear pads, the X Headphones conform to each user’s unique ear shape, providing a highly effective acoustic seal and preventing sound leakage. In addition to reinforcing the headphones’ powerful sub-bass reproduction capability, the ear pads deliver a supportive, cushy feel, ideal for maximum long-term comfort.
The X Headphones are available with color-accented headbands, swivel mechanisms and end caps. Their dual folding style allows the user to swivel the noise isolating ear pads for listening flexibility, as well as conveniently fold the headphones into an included sleek carrying case for hassle-free portability.
Featuring grooved serrations on its surface, the X Headphones’ high-quality cord provides an innovative design that eliminates friction between cable surfaces, reducing the incidence of frustrating tangles.
The X Headphones include a convenient Apple 3-button control with a microphone, track, and volume control functionality, allowing users to access their music and answer phone calls. The remote also provides basic control of most Android devices as well.
