Introducing X Headphones: sound and design like no other

Simon Cowell.

When I hear his name, two things come to mind.

  1. His witty, biting sarcasm.
  2. His music chops.

We’ve all got to give the man props because if there’s one thing Simon knows, it’s music. Good, soul-moving, toe-tapping, finger-snapping tunes.

That’s why it makes perfect sense that Simon and Sony, with its legacy of audio engineering, got together to make a pair of headphones unlike anything you’ve seen (or heard) before.

Today, those headphones have been realized. World, say hello to X Headphones.

They’re engineered with an enhanced acoustic configuration for a high level of noise isolation and exceptional bass response. Featuring precision 50mm drivers, they deliver a full-range audio experience. Basically, these headphones offer listeners the truest sound reproduction, and you can hear music exactly the way an artist meant for it to sound.

The memory foam earpads conform to each person’s ear shape to provide an effective acoustic seal. Plus, they feel like pillows so they are really comfy to wear over extended periods of time.

And check out the design … lookin’ good, right?



The headband is made of aluminum so the headphones are sturdy and strong. Listeners can swivel the earpads for listening flexibility, and the headphones can be folded and tucked away when you’re on the move.

Watch this short clip to see what Simon has to say about X Headphones:

X Headphones are now available online at and will hit Sony Store shelves beginning Sept. 15. They’ll be rolled out to retailers nationwide around Sept. 27.

Join the convo on Twitter #SonyX. And stay tuned, there’ll be a chance for you to win a pair of X Headphones right here on the blog.
