Balanced Armature Drivers
Compared to conventional dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers deliver crystal-clear vocals and booming bass with impressive depth. Plus, the micro-sized, full range 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.
Discreet, Box-free Design
Say goodbye to bulky noise canceling headphones. With a streamlined box-free design, get everything you need for outstanding noise canceling and premium audio reproduction all housed inside a compact, go-anywhere earpiece—including an extra powerful battery for up to 20 hours of performance.
Digital Noise Cancellation
Sony's advanced digital signal processing technology reduces aggravating ambient noise by up to 97.5% for deliciously distraction-free listening, even in loud public places. A tiny microphone on each earpiece works in tandem with noise canceling circuitry to create an opposite sound wave and eliminate an onslaught of ambient noise.
Adapts to Your Environment
Not all ambient noise is the same. Artificial Intelligence technology automatically analyzes the type of sound that surrounds you—whether it be aircraft, train, office or other—and selects the optimal noise canceling mode for the environment.
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? Further reduced ambient noise and long-lasting comfort and wearability—even after hours of non-stop listening.
