  • MDR‑EX300ip, MDR-EX38ip, MDR-E10iP: three headsets  which enhance the experience of listening to music for iPod/iPhone users
  • In-line remote provides fingertip control of iPod/iPhone play functions and volume
  • Integrated microphone for hands-free calls on iPhone

Sony now offers a choice of three high-quality headsets to maximise the enjoyment of listening to your iPod or iPhone.

Joining the MDR-EX38iP, already on the market, the new MDR-EX300iP and MDR-E10iP offer a serious step-up in sound quality compared with your music player’s supplied earbuds.

What’s more, all models feature an in-line remote control that puts commonly-used iPod/iPhone functions within fingertip reach while you’re jogging, commuting or relaxing. The small, discreet remote makes it easy to adjust volume, play/pause, skip tracks and control iPod Shuffle’s unique VoiceOver function. As an added bonus, there’s also an integrated microphone that allows iPhone users to chat hands-free.

With a choice of great colour options, chic designs and in-ear or over-the-ear styles, there’s now a ‘made for iPod’ headset tailored to suit every music lover. All models are compatible with iPod Shuffle (3rd generation); iPod Nano (4th, 5th generations); iPod Classic 120GB/160GB (2009); iPod Touch (2nd generation); iPhone 3GS.

MDR-EX300iP

A dramatic step-up from your music player’s supplied earbuds, the MDR-EX300iP delivers refined, studio-quality sound in a compact, in-ear headphone.

The innovative design features a 13.5mm Neodymium driver unit that’s oriented vertically in the ear. This innovative combination teams excellent sensitivity with smooth, powerful bass and a wide dynamic range. A secure fit is assured by four sizes of supplied hybrid silicone earbuds, providing not only excellent sound isolation but also added comfort – even when worn for long periods of time.

The MDR-EX300iP comes supplied with a genuine leather carry case for storage and transportation.

MDR-EX38iP

Available in a choice of black or white finishes, the MDR-EX38iP lets music lovers enjoy their favourite sounds with greater style. The high-quality in-ear design features a 9mm Neodymium driver for rich, deep bass. Three sizes of hybrid silicone earbuds allow a secure, comfortable fit for the listener.

MDR-E10iP

Stylish, colourful and great value, the MDR-E10iP let listeners express their individuality while listening to their favourite sounds. There’s a choice of four fashion colours (Pink, Gold, Blue, Grey) to co-ordinate with your iPod or iPhone. Crisp sound from the 13.5mm Neodymium driver is partnered with high-comfort wear, thanks to the supplied soft ear-pads that make a great fit for smaller ears.

The new MDR-EX300iP and MDR-E10iP headsets from Sony are available from May 2010. The MDR-EX38iP is available now.
