MDR-EX55SL / Stereo headphones

MDR-EX55SL

Discipline: Product

A popular-price model for the highly competitive inner ear-type headphone sector. The earpiece, housing and cord outlet, which have previously been hard to bring together in a unified design, are now sheathed in elastomer to achieve a unified flow from the earpiece to the cord outlet. This gives the impression of being even more compact than it really is, and in fashion terms achieves a unisex style. Furthermore, thanks to the visual impression of few parts and the clear contrast, it has potential for more interesting color variations.
