Sony Announces New Wireless Headphones

Sony has announced details of two new personal audio devices, one offering wireless audio for up to 25 hours, the other promising 100hours of noise-cancelling audio goodness.

The MDR-RF865RK wireless headphones from Sony boast a transmission range of up to 100m which means you will be able to listen to your audio source whenever you go in your house – unless possibly if you’re the Queen. The wireless cans come with a wireless charging station which takes 3.5 hours to fully charge the headphones giving up to 25 hours of listening pleasure. The volume can be set via the headphone-mounted controls meaning you won’t have to search for the TV remote while using the headphones.

Sony say that the 40mm driver units in the MDR-RF865RK will ensure rich audio while also reducing wireless interference noise. The headphones are available now with a RRP of £100 which seems like good value when compared to the Sleek by 50 wireless headphones we saw at CES, though they are aimed at the higher-end of the market.

Sony has also announced the MDR-NC13 noise-cancelling in-ear headphones which are aimed at travellers and commuters with Sony claiming that over 85 percent of ambient noise is blocked out. The MDR-NC13 comes supplied with a manganese battery and also a single AAA alkaline battery which will boost listening time to a full 100 hours.

The closed-type vertical in-ear design of the MDR-NC13 promises “superb sound quality with excellent wear comfort.” They will be available here in mid-April and come with a RRP of £50.
