mdr x05Sony has just announced that they have expanded their X headphones range with the Sony MDR-X05. This new pair of headphones is said to offer music lovers what Sony calls a “premium audio experience in a more compact and lightweight design”. How true that is remains to be seen, but when you have Simon Cowell working together with Sony Music Entertainment, surely the new MDR-X05 will some sort of pedigree to back up its performance claims, doing that while looking good, too.

The MDR-X05 was specially engineered with an efficient acoustic design, where you will find precision 40mm drivers that deliver a crisp, full-range audio experience which is capable of optimally reproducing today’s bass-heavy music. Apart from that, there are also pressure-relieving memory foam ear pads which allows the X Headphones to conform to each user’s unique ear shape, resulting in a highly effective acoustic seal while preventing any kind of sound leakage. Other features include stylish color-accented headbands, swivel mechanisms and end caps. You will be able to choose from red on silver, black on silver, white on silver, black on red, and red on black color variations, with it arriving on the Sony Store for $199 this coming March 22nd.
