Outline

Standing at the apex of Sony’s in-ear headphone lineup is this new addition, a ticket to the dynamic, moving experience of having constant access to phenomenal audio quality—from the ultralow end to the ultrahigh end . The headphones feature a hybrid structure, which combines a 12-mm dynamic driver with amagnesium dome diaphragm and a BA tweeter, along with a 5-mm dynamic tweeter on the same axis as the sound-conducting tube. All together, the results are amazing: flagship audio quality with ultrabroadband capabilities. The design reflects that technological wizardry, too, with a single-piece zirconia-alloy housing and a polished finish . Topping the look off is a traditional perlage polish finish, lending the headphones a visual charm that keeps users enraptured for the long haul.
