Sony launches MDR-XB910 'Extra Bass' headphones

Sony has released details of its new MDR-XB910 headphones, which lead the company's range of 'Extra Bass' headphones.

The Sony MDR-XB910s come with an inline mic and remote control, and are set to go on sale this month, March, for around £200.

Taking their cue from "the latest music trends", the 'XB910 headphones claim to deliver "extreme sub-bass". No doubt with the huge-selling, Beats by Dre, bass-heavy sound in mind.
