Like they say, it’s all about the bass. Unveiled at CES 2016, Sony’s new series of EXTRA BASS audio products is now available in Malaysia. The new EXTRA BASS MDR-XB650BT headphones are an improvement from previous models and will certainly satisfy the ‘bassheads.’
The Bluetooth compatible MDR-XB650BT comes with a 30mm driver, exclusive to this range, and also incorporates a bass booster structure and dedicated EXTRA BASS diaphragm.
If that’s too technical for you, all it means is it will hit realistic notes, and give you rich, deep bass.
The headphones are specifically designed for deep bass playback. It has an increased contact surface area that gives you a stable fit – so it withstands the punchy and bass notes. It tips the scales at 190g.
Importantly, the ear pads have a soft texture, and fit close to the skin. So while you’re enjoying the bass, it keeps things comfortable and gives you well-balanced sound.
With a swivel structure design, it makes it easy to store and convenient to be carried around.
Aside from Bluetooth 4.0 (A2DP, AVRCP HFP, HSP), the headphones also come with a built-in mic and NFC.
The headphones give you 30 hours of continuous music playback, and it’s rechargeable via USB. Charge time is quoted at four hours, to full charge.
