Product description

Manufacturer's Description

The new generation premium XB40EX in-ear headphones from Sony may be small and light but they serve up a massive, rich sound. Pop the luxury buds into your ears and get ready for the deepest, smoothest thumping bass yet. Dance, electronica, R&B, hip hop, dub, drum and bass, reggae – they’ll all be transformed by the exhilarating delivery of the XB40EX. The introduction of a 13.5mm EXTRA BASS (XB) driver unit means low frequencies are smooth and tight, while a high power neodymium magnet produces a warm, clear mid-range. Total enclosure is achieved thanks to a new vibe structure which has a tightly sealed acoustic design, making you feel like you’re right there on the dance floor or at the front of a gig. It works the other way round too, creating noise isolation so you won’t share your music with other people. With impressive sound quality taken care of, the XB40EX in-ear headphones boast a design that combines style with practicality. Silicone earbuds come in a range of sizes to provide the perfect fit. They’re attached to brushed metal fascia which create a sleek finish, making these the ‘phones to be seen in, wherever you go.

The winning combination of great sound, stylish design and total comfort means music on the move has never been so enjoyable.

The perfect balance of sounds
A huge frequency response range, from an ultra-low 4Hz right up to 24,000Hz, is guaranteed by a neodymium magnet for crisp mid-range and treble sounds. That means you can be sure frequencies are pleasingly balanced as well as accurately reproduced, and the subtleties of a track are revealed. Lose yourself in your music and reduce sound leakage with the XB40EX’s new direct vibe structure. This tightly sealed acoustic design allows for a high level of sound isolation. It’s made possible by the integration of gaskets – a rubbery material – and sealing components which ensure that all the sounds now reach your ears. If it’s volume you’re after, super-sensitive 105 microwatts means these in-ear headphones can output spectacularly loud sound.

Get closer to your music with EXTRA BASS
Sony didn’t call these in-ear headphones EXTRA BASS (XB) for nothing. Powerful new technologies are the secret behind the XB40EX’s ability to recreate the club atmosphere with deep extra bass. Engineered exclusively by Sony, these in-ear headphones feature a 13.5mm driver, which includes a newly developed long-stroke diaphragm. Highly corrugated and hard-wearing, the diaphragm enables the reproduction of a smooth thumping bass line. The driver’s also been designed to keep vibration to a minimum so the sound you hear is impressively clear.

Listen for longer in stylish comfort
When you’re wearing in-ear headphones you need them to be so comfortable you barely notice them. The EX40EX comes with three sizes of hybrid silicone in-ear headphones (S/M/L) so you can be sure of finding the perfect fit. They’re attached to brushed metal fascias which are around 4cm long, making a subtle yet distinctive style statement.

A durable and lightweight Y-type cord completes the package. It comes in three different colours, so you can choose the one that matches your look, and it’s 1.2m long, letting you move around and mix it up without getting in a tangle. Put all this together and the XB40EX in-ear headphones are still amazingly light at around 9 grams, making them easy to wear, and carry. And as an added little extra there’s a carry pouch, so you can pop your XB40EX’s in any bag and know they’re safe.
