The PIIQ Exhale (MDR-PQ5) is a pair of entry-level open-air earbuds from Sony, released in May 2010. The name “PIIQ Exhale” describes the bass produced by the earpiece and its 13.5mm dome-type drivers. This design is intended to maintain a snug fit on the user’s ear while the Y-type cord slider helps to prevent the 3.9 foot (1.2 meter) cord from becoming tangled. Sony has integrated a tactile dot on the left earpiece to help users distinguish left from right in low-light situations. The stereo mini plug is gold-plated, and has the L-shaped form factor. The Sony PIIQ Exhale earbuds are available in yellow, green, pink and multi-color choices.
