SONY announced XB headphones and IEM for basshead

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Today SONY announced Extra-Bass(XB) series headphones and IEM for basshead, mainly for dance, hip-hop lovers.
XB cans share "direct vibration structure" technology, that the key is to improve the sealing and increasing the air-pressure in the housing chamber. The housing itself is tightly sealed as well.

SONY home page (Japanese)

AV watch page(FULL size)

AV watch page(IEMs)

These are going to be launched on November 10th.

Full sized MDR-XB700(MSRP JPY 12,390), MDR-XB500(MSRP JPY 8,715), MDR-XB300(MSRP JPY 4,935), employ extra large ear pads to increase an air-pressure of the housing chamber. Diaphragms have more grooves than usual to ensure the motion ability in the high airpresure.

IEM MDR-XB40EX(MSRP JPY 6,195), MDR-XB20EX(MSRP JPY 3,675) employs improved sealing and ear pieces.
