The Sony MDR-XB41EX is a mid-grade pair of ear-buds are designed to provide a more enhanced treble and bass quality which is delivered through a lower overall frequency response rating. The XB41EX ear-buds are also available in a multitude of various color schemes and body styles which include Black, Red, Blue and Brown.

Like the MDR-XB1000 model headphones, the MDR-XB41EX ear-buds feature a low frequency response range (4Hz-24KHz) which Sony claims will provide a more enhanced sound quality. The MDR-XB41EX ear-buds also include a 100mW maximum supported power input, a 16 ohm impedance rating, and a 103dB sensitivity level. On top of the aforementioned specs the MDR-XB41EX ear-buds will include a .53" diameter driver unit in each ear-piece which is housed in an exterior also covered by fully replaceable ear pads.

Compared to the lower end MDR-XB21EX model ear-buds, the MDR-XB41EX model includes much larger diameter driver units, a lower frequency response rating, and a more expensive price tag.

The $119 listed MSRP is an estimate, the final listing price may not reflect this estimate. The MDR-XB41EX ear-buds were released alongside the Sony MDR-XB1000 around ear headset and lower end MDR-XB21EX earbuds and are currently only available in Japan.
