Sony announced today its newest addition to the X Headphone line, the on-ear MDR-X05.
Featuring a compact and lightweight design the new X05 use precision 40mm drivers for a full-range audio experience.
With their pressure-relieving memory foam ear pads, the X Headphones conform to each user's ear shape, preventing sound leakage. In addition, the ear pads have been designed for maximum long-term comfort.
Their dual folding style allows the user to swivel the noise isolating ear pads for listening flexibility, as well as fold the headphones into an included sleek carrying case. Their cord's design also eliminates friction between cable surfaces, reducing the incidence of frustrating tangles.
For iPod, iPhone and iPad users, the X Headphones include an Apple 3-button control with a microphone, track, and volume control functionality, allowing users to access their music and answer phone calls. The remote also provides basic control of most Android devices as well.
The new X Headphones will be available in five color variations for pre-sale today at www.sony.com/X5 and beginning March 22 through the Sony Store online, in Sony retail stores, and at other authorized retailers in the U.S. for about $199.
