30 mm neodymium driver unit exclusive to EXTRA BASS
Up to 30 hours of battery life
Swivel ear cups for easy portability
The MDR-XB650BT headphones combine deep, punchy EXTRA BASS sound with wireless freedom and long-listen comfort.
Neodymium dynamic drivers deliver precise sound:
Lightweight 30mm neodymium dynamic driver units enable the headphones to deliver a punchy, rhythmic response to even the most demanding track. Combined with a highly sensitive diaphragm, you'll be able to turn the headphones up louder and still enjoy clear, precise audio across the spectrum.
NFC One-touch for instant connectivity:
Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth technology remove the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled device to the headphones for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming your music collection. No NFC? No problem. Connect via Bluetooth and you're ready to go.
EXTRA BASS for deep, punchy sound:
As part of the EXTRA BASS product range from Sony, these headphones are ideal for listening to EDM and other bass-heavy music genres. They feature Bass Booster technology that provides an acoustically-tight seal for superior sound isolation, deep bass sound and tight bass response.
Swivel design for easy packing:
The headphones' swivelling earcup design enables easy storage when you're not using them, and enhances portability when you're travelling. The ear cups swivel flat, so you can pack them into a suitcase or a bag without worrying about them taking up too much valuable space.
Cushioned ear pads for total comfort:
Listen in total comfort. These headphones have a self-adjusting headband and soft cushioned ear cups that cover the whole ear. Enjoy the long-lasting comfort you need for listening to your favourite albums back-to-back.
Built-in mic for hands-free calls:
A built-in button and mic on the headband enables you to take hands-free calls from selected smartphones while listening to music. Switch easily between songs and calls with no need to remove your headphones.
Long battery life for non-stop listening:
A charge of around 4 hours will enable you to enjoy approximately 30 hours play time. So you can keep on listening, track after track, mix after mix.

Swivel broken both sidesI have had my headphones for approx 12 months. They have been sparsely used but when I had the opportunity, I loved them & looked afyter them which is obvious in the photos attached. However, a few months ago I noticed that one of the ear-piece swivels had broken. I taped it back together as a temporary fix. Thinking it must have been my fault due to some unknown misplacement or such like, I was extremely careful from then on. However, just last weekend the other swivel broke without the slightest mishandling or impact. Upon checking the website I found that others experienced the same problem so obviously there is a fault with the structure. Reading the sony forums, this seems to be a common issue with these headsets therefore, Sony is obviously aware. I do enjoy these headphones and I would like them to be fixed. How can I get this issue resolved?

Very poorly put together.I purchased two of these items, about two months apart. They actually work very well and the sound quality is great. No issues with the performance at all.
Sadly, they are very flimsy, especially in the swivel area....both headsets failed (broke) in the same area, after a few months of very careful use. (Two different users). The retailer refused to repair or replace either headset!!
I had to repair both items myself...superglue came to the rescue.
Lesson to be learned...NEVER, EVER, hold the headset by the ear cups when putting on or taking the headset off! The swivel connection WILL break eventually. A close inspection during the repairs I did, showed that the swivel joint is about as strong as a piece of wet spagetti.

Easily breaks, poor qualityI have had two pairs of these headphones in the last 5 months because the keeps breaking. Like physically falling apart! The earphone just somehow crack and separate from the headband. I gave it 3 stars because the sound is great and has an incredible battery life but I don't feel like replacing my headphones every 2-3 months.
