Wired Connection

Unlike wireless options, the wired connection provided by this product allows you to plug into you audio device without having to bother about staying charged. 

Wireless Connection

By choosing to go wireless with these pair of headphones, you are no longer shackled to your audio device and now have the freedom to enjoy the trends of wireless gadgets that can connect using various methods like Bluetooth.

Wireless + Wired Combo

With a pair that has both wired and wireless capabilities, you're free to choose how you'd like to connect to your devices.

Battery Life

These Sony headphones are able to last for up to 22 hours.

Connected Devices

  • Android device that comes with a port for connecting wired headphones.
  • iOS device where a headphone port is present.
  • Hi-Fi amplifier just in case you have sensitive neighbours or little ones in the house that would prefer not to join in on your booming sounds. What's more, it's got an impedance of 47 Ω (Ohms) making it capable of handling a Hi-Fi that has a powerful output.
  • PC or Mac to cater for a wide range of audio needs while using your computer.
  • Headphone amp that brings your tunes to life.
  • MP3 player so you can keep listening to your playlists while on the move.
  • Musical instrument for your creative work.

All Kinds of Journeys

  • Commuting is a key part of life in the city and these headphones will be a good partner while you're on the move.
  • On flights, time can pass quite slowly which is why these Sony headphones will come in handy for distracting yourself during your journey. To help cope with the noises around you, these headphones come with noise cancelling features. Since it's foldable, it's much easier to fit into your bags..
  • On train trips sometimes you'll need to zone out from the sounds of other passengers. The Sony helps achieve this with its "closed-back" ear-piece design. Also, it's got noise cancelling features to help you tune out even more.

Game Console Compatibility

  • Works with the PS4
  • Works with the PS Vita

For producing creative work

  • DJ work requires great headphones and the specs on the Sony MDR-XB950N1B BT 4.1 22hrs Black such as the 40 cm driver unit size makes it suitable for your needs.

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.
