Product Details

Sony Active Sport In-Ear Black Headphones, Model XBAS65

No workout is complete without a pumping playlist to add a little energy and excitement. These XBA-S65 active in-ear headphones bring it hard. Outfitted with high quality Balanced Armature full range driver units, they deliver a balanced, rich spectrum of intense audio to pump you up and motivate you for more action. A fraction of the size of dynamic drivers, they pack more punch into a smaller form factor that slips easily inside your ear, stays in place and keeps up with the pace. Plus, they're sweat-proof and water-resistant to hold up to muscle-burning workouts or rainy day runs.

Features:

Sound Story
Compared to conventional Dynamic drivers, Balanced Armature drivers reproduce a smooth, broad, and even frequency response with notable vocal clarity. Sony Balanced Armature drivers can even be tuned for higher or lower frequency response, as well as 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.

Secure Fit
Hybrid silicone earbuds, in 4 sizes, allow for a tailored fit that maximizes overall sound quality and comfort.

Splash-proof
The IPx5 and x7 rated water resistant housing completely eliminates airways, while a waterproof film keeps water from leaking in, making the XBA-S65 highly water resistant and rinsable without sacrificing music quality.

Wearing Comfort
The ultra-compact design of a Balanced Armature (BA) earbud allows for a natural in-ear fit and improved, long-term comfort.

Carrying Pouch
A carrying pouch is included to keep your headphones protected while traveling.

Adjustable Ear Loop
Easily adjust for a precise fit by looping the Ear Loop around the ear and pulling snug. Once in place, the XBA-S65 earbuds stay put, letting you focus on matters at hand.

Noise Blocking Design
Balanced Armature Series earphones comfortable fit also afford significantly lower sound leakage levels both in or out, allowing you uninterrupted access to your music.

An over all worthy product to buy, it's very comfortable to the ear with the rubbery loop. I like the adjustable over the ear loop that can be pulled for a customized fit. I started with the XBA-1 and I was sort of satisfied but it lacked the ability to stay in the ear when just doing a simple jog around the block.

I bought these as soon as they the hit retail stores. After about one month I was very disappointed. They began to fall apart. I just wonder about the design engineers at Sony. I remember when I would buy a Sony product I had quality and something that would last. That is no longer true. My hunt continues for a quality earbud for workouts and price is no option.

Comments about Sony Active Sport In-Ear Black Headphones:

I have a Sony mp3 player too and find it hilarious that the volume controls on Sony headphones only work with Apple products, not with their own players.

        Great headphones for running

        By erikatastic

        from San Francisco, CA

        Pros

        • Love the loop around the ear; good sound quality

        Cons

        • Bounce out a little after awhile

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony Active Sport In-Ear Black Headphones:

          I love these headphones! I run 3 miles every morning, and these are easy to put in my ear and tighten the loop around--it is such a better way to keep them in compared to the head-band style I previously used. Super comfortable, easy to adjust, sound is good, and I am very happy with my purchase.
