Wired Connection

Connected Devices

  • Android device with a port to connect wired headphones.
  • iOS device that comes with a headphone port.
  • PC or Mac for whatever audio you need to listen to while you work or play.
  • Headphone amp to get a much better listening experience.
  • MP3 player which allows you to enjoy your tunes on the go.
  • Musical instrument for your creative work.

Game Console Compatibility

All Kinds of Journeys

  • Commuting while listening to music from these Sony headphones gives the perfect distraction while getting to work.

Various Audio Content Types

  • Audio books which would require listening to warm sounds with an emphasis on the vocals.
  • Music which would require a headphone with really good sound reproduction. This is typically helped by the sizeable diameter of the audio driver component built into the earpiece.
  • Video content in order to enjoy your choice of movies, series and shows.
  • Radio which requires reasonable quality output for you to enjoy mixes, news and shows from your favourite stations.
  • Gaming audio in order to fully enjoy the sound effects and rousing music while playing on your PC or console.
  • Podcasts for fun, knowledge and entertainment.
