Everything sounds beautifully clear with new headphones from Sony

08 September 2008

8th September 2008 - New additions to the Sony range of in-ear headphones are beautifully styled for sparkling performance and extra comfort, whatever you’re doing.

There’s a choice of affordable, great-sounding headphones with cool, fun looks to match your lifestyle. They’re joined by a sports-oriented Bluetooth™ Stereo headset to keep pace with active lifestyles – and no wires to get in the way.

MDR-EX33LP and MDR-EX35LP in-ear headphones

  • Fun, affordable in-ear headphone with great Sony sound quality
  • EX33LP available in five high-fashion colours; EX35LP three colours
  • Hybrid silicone earbuds for secure fit and long-term wear comfort
  • EX33LP includes extra-small earbuds for smaller ear sizes
  • 9mm EX driver unit for wide dynamic range and deep bass
  • Convenient cord adjuster and cord slider to prevent tangling

Now every music lover can express themselves with a fresh, colourful choice of headphones to match their personal style. Featuring new-look pearlescent and metallic colours, the funky MDR-EX33LP is available in five stylish colour variations (pearlescent white, metallic blue, pink, silver, gold).

The affordable MDR-EX33LP delivers crisp, clear, low distortion sound with a wide dynamic range thanks to its high-quality 9mm diameter EX driver. Like other models in the new EX headphone range, a specially developed new hybrid silicone earbud assures extra-comfort wear.

The choice of three supplied earbuds includes a Super Small sized bud that’s a comfortable, more secure fit for girls and younger music fans. The cord slider prevents cord tangling, and a handy cord adjuster is also supplied to control the length of the cable.

Sharing the same 9mm EX driver and hybid silicone earbuds, the MDR-EX35LP features sleek, contemporary looks and is available in a choice of black, white or red colour-ways.

DR-BT160AS / DR-BT160IK / DR-BT14Q Bluetooth™ Stereo Wireless Active stereo headphones

  • Wireless Bluetooth™ Stereo headset for sports and active lifestyles
  • Convenient fingertip control of MP3 player functions
  • Take wireless calls from Bluetooth™ phone with inbuilt microphone
  • Dual support design with soft elastomer hanger for comfortable, secure fit
  • Available as a kit with Bluetooth™ dongle for iPod®

Now you can enjoy superb sound from your Bluetooth™ phone, Bluetooth™ WALKMAN®, or other Bluetooth-enabled MP3 player without a tangle of cables while you’re rushing around, jogging or working out.

The DR-BT160AS Bluetooth™ Stereo wireless headphone streams crisp, wide bandwidth stereo audio directly from any compatible Bluetooth™ music source. The light, easy to wear headset also features an in-built microphone so you can take hands-free calls from your Bluetooth™ mobile phone without breaking a sweat… whether you’re pounding the pavement or the treadmill.

The splashproof, street-smart design features a soft elastomer hanger for a comfortable, secure fit on your ears. The sliding earpiece shaft can be easily adjusted to fit a wide range of ear sizes.

No-one needs the distraction of fiddling with their MP3 player’s controls when they’re exercising. The DR-BT160AS makes it easy to skip tracks and to adjust volume and other music player functions using convenient controls on the side of the headset.

The DR-BT160iK kit teams DR-BT160AS headphones with the TMR BT8iP Bluetooth™ dongle, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from your iPod®.

Also available, the DR-BT140Q ear-clip headphone offers great audio quality from your Bluetooth™ music player, with a comfortable clip-on fit and fingertip control of player functions.

All models are available to order from October or on pre-order at www.sonystyle-europe.com from September 2008.
