Wired Connection

These wired headphones by Sony are a really good choice if you prefer not to deal with some of the challenges posed by wireless headphones such as needing to always remember to recharge it before taking it out with you.

Connected Devices

  • Android device that has the usual headphone port.
  • iOS device where a headphone port is present.
  • Hi-Fi amplifier which allows you listen to your tunes while drowning out any other audio distractions around you. In addition that, these Sony headphones have an impedance of 40 Ω (Ohms) which helps it cope with the power output of the Hi-Fi system.
  • PC or Mac to cater for a wide range of audio needs while using your computer.
  • Headphone amp to get a much better listening experience.
  • MP3 player so you can keep listening to your playlists while on the move.
  • Musical instrument to listen closely to your output while you play.

All Kinds of Journeys

  • Commuting every day is less boring when you've got these pair of headphones to listen to your playlists or catch-up on a TV show.

Game Console Compatibility

  • Works with the Nintendo Switch

For producing creative work

  • DJ work requires great headphones and the specs on the Sony MDR-XB950AP Over-ear Grey such as the 40 cm driver unit size makes it suitable for your needs.

Various Audio Content Types

  • Audio books where you can enjoy listening to a range of narrated titles and written materials.
  • 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 while watching or streaming a TV episode or full feature film.
  • 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.
