The MDR-XB40EX are mid-range in-ear headphones from Sony, and a more advanced version of the MDR-XB20EX, which were designed for a powerful bass response. Essentially, the XB40EX aim for an even more powerful lower range. They feature 13.5mm drivers engineered by Sony for high sensitivity and bass optimization. While the enhanced bass may please hip-hop fans, the XB40EX may not satisfy those seeking an accurate sound balance in a variety of music genres. The shape of the silicone earbuds, included in three sizes, is designed to create a close, comfortable seal in the ear, further optimizing bass while minimizing distortion and leakage. Compared to the XB20EX, they have a slightly higher sensitivity and wider frequency response. The MDR-XB40EX are available in black with silver accents, and come with a carrying pouch and shirt clip.
