Step up to Sony's long-awaited, high-end MDR-XB700 Extra Bass headphones. Engineered with an oxygen-free copper (OFC) voice coil for clear sound with no degradation, these bad boys were destined for handling high power (3000mW). You will also appreciate the circum-aural, closed-design ear cushions, padded headband and of course the enormous 50mm Extra Bass diaphragm driver units. Includes a carrying pouch to protect your investment.
Three sizes, one goal
Let the bass drop. Whether you choose the 30, 40 or 50mm drivers, all Extra Bass headphones share the same mission: Deliver big, booming bass.
Seriously low frequencies = Serious bass
To achieve dramatic bass that really moves you, headphones need to produce ultra-low frequencies. As the chart suggests, Extra Bass headphones crush the likes of normal headphones with low levels that make all the difference.
The mind behind the bass
When asked what inspired the unique style of the headphones, designer Jun Komiyama said, "When I saw a puffy, luxurious, huge sofa I thought, 'Now that's what I want.'" He envisioned a handmade-like heaviness and high-quality impression that's clearly evident in the final result. Mr. Komiyama's main objective was to create a shape that would appeal to lovers of bass-heavy club music and hip-hop. One look at the king-sized ear cushions and you know what's in store.
