Featuring Sony's new Balanced Armature full range drivers, these in-ear headphones open up a world of exorbitant audio quality and sumptuous sound any music lover is sure to appreciate.
Beyond average audio.
Take your audio experience to the next level with the latest advancement in listening. The Balanced Armature drivers of these XBA-1 in-ear headphones are meticulously pre-tuned by Sony engineers to deliver a pristine soundscape full of beautiful highs and deep, resonating lows right out of the box. Optimized for audiophiles, revel in incredibly crisp vocals, buffed out bass and a remarkably balanced frequency response-and hear every note of your music like it was meant to be heard.
Designed for discerning audiophiles, XBA Series in-ear headphones 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.
Balanced Armature Drivers
Compared to conventional dynamic drivers, the XBA-1's Balanced Armature full range driver delivers crystal-clear vocals and booming bass with impressive depth. Plus, the micro-sized driver comes precision tuned by Sony engineers to evenly reproduce a broad spectrum of high to low frequency response for an incredibly balanced audio experience.
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.
Long Lasting Comfort
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? Reduced ambient noise and long-lasting comfort and wearability-even after hours of non-stop listening.
Noise Blocking Design
Lock in the sounds of your favorite songs, and block out disruptive background noise. Because Sony XBA Series in-ear headphones boast a noise-blocking design and a snug, comfortable fit, they prevent sound leakage-both in and out of the ear-so you can enjoy your music without annoying your neighbor, and get lost in a distraction-free listening experience.
With four sizes of hybrid silicone and three sizes of noise isolating ear cushions included, you can choose the best fit for your ears to maximize overall sound quality and comfort. With the perfect-fitting pair, your XBA Series in-ear headphones stay securely in place-even during strenuous exercise-while keeping ambient background noise at bay.
Step up your listening experience with these Sony XBA-1 Balanced Armature in-ear headphones. Boasting micro-sized Balanced Armature full range driver units, they deliver an incredibly balanced spectrum of sound-from the highest highs to the lowest lows-at a fraction of the size of traditional drivers. Their smaller size means greater comfort and less bulk. Plus, a variety of included ear cushions-four sizes hybrid silicone, three sizes noise isolating-makes for the perfect fit and better ambient noise canceling. So slip them on and turn it up as every note resonates with the premium audio quality you'd expect from Sony's top-of-the-line headphone series.
Compared to conventional Dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers reproduce a smooth, broad, and even frequency response with notable vocal clarity. Sony® Balanced Armature drivers can even be tuned for higher or lower frequency response, as well as combined to emphasize certain sound characteristics.
