Sony has rolled out several new headphones that fall into the MDR-ZX and the MDR-EX series. The top of the line headphones in the new series are the MDR-ZX750BN. These headphones are headband style and have noise cancellation tech built-in. Sony claims that the headphones can block 98% of ambient sound.
The headphones use Bluetooth connectivity to stream music with no wires for the listener to deal with from any Bluetooth device. If you use a Sony Xperia device, the headphones can be paired with a touch using NFC technology. Power for the headphones comes from an internal rechargeable battery. You can listen for 13 hours non-stop per charge.
That 13-hour long playback is with active noise cancelling turned off. The headphones also have a remote control and built-in microphone. That means you can make and receive calls without taking the headset off and change tracks and volume without removing your device from your pocket. Sony uses a 40mm driver in the headphones promising a wide dynamic range and quality sound. The EX series of headphones are in-ear style and overall there are 11 new products that fit into these two product lines.
