The Sony MDRXB20EX is a lightweight XB series headphone with a 9mm Neodymium dome driver. The first of five models in the Sony XB series, the MDRXB20EX maintains an angled ear-bud structure that provides a stable and comfortable fit, and a ‘direct vibe structure’ which features a tightly sealed acoustic design and a high level of sound isolation, thereby giving users a full bass sound without sacrificing any mids and highs. In addition, the MDRXB20EX offers a 100mW power handling capacity, a 5 – 23,000Hz frequency response, a 16 ohms impedance, and a 103 dB/mW sensitivity. The MDRXB20EX also comes equipped with a newly developed long stroke PET diaphgram that delivers smoother vibrations, an L-shaped stereo mini-plug, and a TPC Y-Shaped cord. The Sony MDRXB20EX retails for $69.00 and comes with a 90 day limited warranty.
