Hands-free Calls and Easy Control
Take, make or end calls—or skip to the next track of your playlist—using the in-line remote with built-in mic. With full integration for your iPhone, iPod and iPad, controlling your music is a breeze. Activate the VoiceOver mode with the simple press of a button, and your iPod will even tell you what song you're listening to (enabled devices only).
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.
