XBA-H3

Portable High-Resolution Audio

Sony’s flagship earbuds feature the Hybrid Driver system, combining the strengths of Balanced Armature and Dynamic drivers to produce outstanding clarity across the entire sonic range.

Music as the artist intended

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, while advanced technologies such as digital upscaling help create the ultimate listening experience.

Ultra-premium audio in an earbud

Low-end earbuds have only a single driver, and can’t produce the frequency range necessary for High-Resolution Audio. Sony packed three drivers inside the XBA-H3’s precision-moulded housing.

Expanding the sonic spectrum

With a wider frequency range and sophisticated drivers, the XBA-H3 delivers High-Resolution Audio that's as close as possible to the live performance.

Sony’s Hybrid driver system

Each of the three drivers covers a specific portion of the frequency range, for rich bass, accurate mid range and crystalline highs.

Inside audiophile sound

High-Resolution Audio—now in earbuds

While most people can only hear frequencies from 20-20,000 Hz, these actually reproduce 3-40,000 Hz. This is because infra- and ultrasonic frequencies are not heard—they are felt. This creates the richness of live and studio-quality music experiences—an experience lost with compressed digital files or some other headphones.
