Product Description

Experience Balanced Armature Headphones

Sony has brought together a wide range of technologies to create the Balanced Armature Headphone series, featuring the world’s only Balanced Armature (BA) drivers optimized for music enjoyment. Because these driver units can be freely tuned, they are capable of a wider range of sound, and by combining full-range, woofer, super woofer and tweeter units, they can be layered together for a highly nuanced sound experience. Thanks to the driver’s micro sized construction and high sensitivity, these headphones are able to maximize style comfort, sound insulation, sound leakage prevention and even waterproofing, all while providing great sound quality. Sony BA headphones deliver a new high-quality music listening experience.

Double Layered Housing

The combination of Magnesium inner housing and a special ABS outer housing reduces unwanted vibration and realises smooth sound response to reproduce clear and distortion-free sound, especially in the mid to high range. Double Layered Housing Design allowed Sony to achieve superior sound quality and noise reduction.

High sensitivity for such a compact size

Clear output across a full sound range

Drivers Volume Sensitivity
13mm Dynamic 340mm3 106dB/mW
09mm Dynamic 130mm3 100dB/mW
BA 80mm3 106dB/mW
Compact size

Sony's Balanced Armature Drivers are 40% smaller than the traditional 9mm Dynamic Driver Units. The smaller size allows a design that creates a better fit inside the ear. This attenuates the outside sounds better than headphones with Dynamic drivers, resulting in a superior listening experience.

Sound quality

Compared to Dynamic drivers, BA drivers have an even response across the frequency range, with low and middle vocal ranges standing out. The sound has a very precise feel. BA drivers can be tuned for higher or lower ranges and combined to emphasize certain sounds.



Woofer
Sony’s original sound filter structure blocks higher frequencies while amplifying lower ones. The woofer unit reproduces richer, deeper and powerful base.
Tweeter
A specially designed diaphragm, coil and damper are used to enhance playback of high-end frequencies. The tweeter unit reproduces bright and detailed high notes.
   
 
 
Full Range
The core Balanced Armature driver design produces an even response across the full sound range, with improvements over ordinary balanced armature unit for high frequencies. The characteristic of flat and uncoloured mid range reproduces crystal clear and profound vocal sound
Super Woofer
The super woofer unit improves playback of very low-range frequencies to provide a full, rich bass sound that can be felt with the whole body. It also harmonises each units to reproduce rich expression through all frequencies.
