Sony has added new mod­els to its ZX se­ries head­phone line-up, two of which in­cor­po­rate Blue­tooth, so you can send your mu­sic wire­lessly to the head­phones from any NFC-en­abled mu­sic de­vice. The top-line MDR-ZX770BN ($279.95) also in­cor­po­rates ac­tive noise-can­celling, so you can al­most elim­i­nate back­ground noises when trav­el­ling on buses, trains or aero­planes… and so you can use them when fly­ing, Sony in­cludes an aero­plane head­phone adap­tor. The head­phone ear­pieces are de­signed to swivel, mak­ing it easy to stow the head­phones when trav­el­ling, and the in­built recharge­able bat­tery is claimed to give a mu­sic play­back time of 13 hours even when the noise-can­celling cir­cuitry is switched on. ‘ The ear­pieces have high-qual­ity 40mm neodymium driv­ers and beat re­sponse con­trol for su­pe­rior au­dio qual­ity, so you can now en­joy rich bass and clear crys­talline highs ev­ery­where you go,’ said Abel Makhraz, Head of Video, Sound & Tablet, Sony Australia & New Zealand. ‘Th­ese head­phones bring you thrilling sound with ef­fort­less style, par­tic­u­larly for the trav­eller, with Sony’s pow­er­ful DNC soft­ware en­gine work­ing to elim­i­nate cabin noise and other back­ground sounds.’ The MDR- ZX330BT ($169.95) also has Blue­tooth but has smaller, 30mm driv­ers. The in­built recharge­able bat­ter­ies are claimed to de­liver a 30-hour bat­tery life when lis­ten­ing wire­lessly. The base model MDR-ZX660AP ($119.95) has 40mm driv­ers, a tan­gle-free flat ca­ble, a com­fort­able on-ear de­sign and is avail­able in three colour vari­a­tions—black, or­ange and blue.
