Posted on 12 September 2014 Tags: Bluetooth, Entertainment, Feature

Are you looking for Bluetooth headphones that offer a killer bass? Well, look no further than the Sony MDR-XB950BT. Sony’s latest set of headphones offers a perfect combination of bass and Bluetooth, something few other headphones on the market can claim to provide. According to Sony, the headphones deliver ‘a powerful audio experience’ and that is what they do, for the most part. Let’s look at the gadget in more detail.

Sony has definitely upgraded the specs and appearance of the headphones. They have come up with a new look for their over-ear headphones, one you can expect to see in the headphones the company makes in the future. The USP of the product is the bass. So far, there are no clear indications of how the overall sound quality of the headphones is affected by the extra bass. There have been many cases of companies sacrificing audio performance to enhance the bass and that no longer works for customers.

As far as the Bluetooth is concerned, you can use it for audio streaming. The headphones come with apt-X and AAC support to enhance Bluetooth connectivity. There is also the Electronic Bass Boost which is being touted as the main feature of the headphones. You can also operate the headphones in passive mode using the cord when you don’t want to use the battery. The battery is rechargeable and can be used for listening to 20 hours of music. You get a detachable audio cable and a USB charging cable with the headphones.

The design of the headphones is comfortable and you wouldn’t have any problems even if you keep them on for a few hours at a stretch. You can also enjoy hands free calling using the built-in microphone. The best part is the one-touch connectivity, ensuring you don’t have to fiddle around to get the headphones to work. The Sony MDR-XB950BT features Near Field Communication (NFC) to deliver enhanced performance.

The Sony MDR-XB950BT will hit the market in mid-September and cost $199.99. At that price tag, the headphones are definitely worth your money.
