Treat yourself to a more spacious, relaxed listening experience with a new range of open-type headphones from Sony. Beautifully styled and comfortable to wear, the MA series is tailored for great sound in the home – whether you’re watching TV, listening to a hi-fi, gaming or browsing videos on your PC or tablet. The Full Open style of the flagship MDR-MA900 delivers an extremely natural and expansive soundstage. Enhanced by an elegantly light, high-comfort design in premium materials, it’s the closest you’ll get to the sensation of headphone-less listening. The newly developed extra-large 70mm driver units on the MA900 assure detailed, spacious sound with an exceptionally wide dynamic range and an extended frequency response. It is the first time that a driver of this size has been implemented on an open-backed headphone from Sony. The unique Acoustic Bass Lens focuses low-end notes for a weighty bottom-end punch that ordinary full open-type headphones struggle to match. The integration of an impedance compensator helps maintain a fuller, more even bass response than can be experienced in other open-type headphones, when driven by different audio sources. The clean, modern styling of the MA900 is accentuated by weight-saving aluminium and magnesium components and the slim headband’s flexible head cushion adapts naturally to your head shape, for an exceptionally comfortable listening experience. Comfort comes first across the entire MA series. The MDR-MA500 and MDR-MA300 offer a flexible ear fit mechanism for ultra-relaxing wear during lengthy movie, music or gaming sessions. Powerful 300 kJ/m3 neodymium magnets assure clear rich bass and clear mid-range reproduction. The MDR-MA100 includes soft fabric earpads for hours of comfortable listening. The MDR-MA102TV offers all the same features as the MA100, adding an extra-long 5m cord and handy in-line volume control. It’s great for TV viewers who want to enjoy their favourite shows without disturbing others. The new MA series of open headphones from Sony are available in the UK from May 2012.
