Sony XBA-NC85D Features

  • Sound Story: Compared to conventional Dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers produce a broad and even frequency response with notable vocal clarity. SONY Balanced Armature drivers are tuned for higher or lower frequency response and combined to emphasize certain sound characteristics
  • Balanced Armature Driver: Newly developed micro-size, full-range driver units deliver detailed and transparent sound reproduction. Be it your favorite vocalist, driving bass line, piano, guitar or drum solo, hear even the most subtle musical details with tremendous clarity
  • Digital Noise canceling technology: Digital technology provides for optimal noise cancelation with outstanding audio performance. Read below to learn more about the digital difference when it comes to noise canceling ear buds
  • Boxless Design: It's all there. Everything you need for outstanding noise-free audio reproduction can be found housed inside the ear pieces: the micro-sized BA drivers, sophisticated digital noise canceling circuitry and an internal, rechargeable battery for up to 20 hours of listening enjoyment
  • Intelligent Auto-Selection: Not all ambient noise is the same. Fully automatic AI Noise Canceling circuitry automatically selects the optimal noise canceling (for aircraft, train or office) through analysis of available ambient noise
  • Wearing Comfort: The ultra-compact design of Balanced Armature (BA) in-ear headphones allows for a natural in-ear fit and improved, long-term comfort
  • Smart Charge System: While the XBA-NC85D Balanced Armature (BA) in-ear headphones enable music playback just like conventional headphones, they are charged by connecting the audio jack to a USB interface, just like a smart phone or digital media player
  • Noise Isolation: Noise isolation earbuds (Included: Small, Medium and Large) not only provide a comfortable, snug fit, but also utilize pressure relieving urethane foam to further reduce ambient noise
