Hybrid entry level IEM from Sony. Features one dynamic and one balanced armature driver. Successor to Sony XBA - H1
“Long time reader, first time poster, it's time for some contribution to the forum: here's my appraisal of Sony’s XBA-A3, compared to its peers in the Sony Hybrid-BA lineup. Background I mostly use my IEMs out on the street or while traveling, usually connected to an iPhone. I listen predominantly to AAC (256kb/s) and MP3 (320kb/s), which doesn't give me bragging rights...” --Ralphee
“EDIT- I've done a comparison between these and the JVC HA-FX850. http://www.head-fi.org/products/jvc-ha-fx850/reviews/13420.

“ This can be said as a uncut ruby, why? Because it needs a lot of tempering. First time I used it, the human voice in my music was muffled by the background track itself but it wasn't to the point where you can't actually hear the lyrics itself (unlike monster beats). Though it didn't sound amazing at first, I gave it a try, mainly because it was on a discount; if it were at its...” --Miniclap1

“The review below is for the E10M but the E10 is exactly identical, bar the extra mic. So lets begin. Packaging: Mine came in a nice little box with plenty of tips. I tried swapping out the stock ones with each one of them. There’s also an adaptor that allows you to connect the earphones to a laptop or desktop with separate ports for head phone and mic....” --rajeevrn
