San Diego - Sony Electronics shipped today a new flagship wireless, noise cancelling over-the-head headphones model with hands-free calling capabilities.
The new MDR-ZX750BN headphones connect to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth with NFC and have an active digital noise-cancelling mode as well as a passive mode that uses no battery power. Sony said in active mode the headphones reduce 98 percent of ambient noise. The Bluetooth and Bluetooth Noise Canceling modes feature native aptX and AAC compatibility. The headphones automatically select one of the three noise-cancelling modes based on the intelligent analysis of environmental ambient noise with the push of one button.
Bass response is fueled by twin 40mm drivers with Beat Response Control.
The headphones also feature an integrated microphone for hands-free calling and a rechargeable battery that delivers up to 13 hours of continuous, wireless music playback with noise cancelling activated.
Frequency response is 20-20,000Hz when streaming audio wirelessly and bumps up to 8–22,000Hz when connected via a supplied audio cable. A USB charging cable and conventional 1/8-inch stereo audio cable are also included.
The MDR-ZX750BN headphones will be available for $199.99 at the Sony Store, CE retailers nationwide and online at sony.com.
