Recently Sony has introduced two new XBA balance armature headphones in Japan. This XBA headphones are specially made for the Android and BlackBerry smartphone users. Though Sony did not announce the price of the XBA-1VP and XBA-2VP, but we expect that The XBA-2VP will be available at ($240) and the XBA-1VP ($160).
Both features have the same tiny balanced armature units that allow the headphones to be so small yet produce clear sound. The XBA-1VP contains one full-range driver unit and the XBA-2VP throws in a woofer to the mix.
If you are the owner of a Windows Phone, Symbian or any other smartphone, there is no guarantee that the headphones will work, even you will still have to hold up your phone to talk.
We expect that these two headphones will be available from May 2012.
