(SINGAPORE, 30TH MARCH 2012) – Sony is giving smartphones users greater versatility and convenience by introducing two new Balanced Armature (BA) headphones with remote control for smartphones, following the successful and popular launch of its XBA series in September last year.
The two new headphones, XBA-1VP and XBA-2VP, feature the same micro-sized BA units that produce crystal clear sound reproduction and quality across the range of frequencies, giving audiophiles a more enjoyable listening experience while not compromising on comfort and mobility. The XBA-1VP contains one full range driver unit, whereas the XBA-2VP has a woofer added into the mix to deliver high sensitive accurate frequencies with a rich bass, making vocals clearer for the discerning listener.
Both headphones were designed to block off acoustic sound to reduce ambient noise and sound leakage by utilising a doubled layered housing casing. The XBA-1VP uses Liquid Crystal Polymer and the XBA-2VP possesses a magnesium inner housing to ensure a smooth surround sound with a clear and distinct mid-high range. The special ABS material used for the outer housing in both headphones prevents any unwanted distortions and vibrations.
Mr. Taisuke Nakanishi, Managing Director, Sony South East Asia, said: “With the new XBA-1VP and XBA-2VP, mobile phone users can now enjoy the crisp, clear audio that the XBA series delivers while enjoying the convenience of hands-free conversations on their phones.”
The XBA-1VP and XBA-2VP headphones will be available in Singapore from May 2012.
