Sony introduces MA series headphones

Something for everyone with models for TV, music and gaming

Sony has unveiled its new MA series of headphones designed for TV, music and gaming.

The flagship model of the range is the MDR-MA900 which has large 70mm drivers and an acoustic bass lens for 'powerful' sound. Sony said it’s the first time a drive this size has been used in its open-backed headphones.

The MA900 model has a full open style and lightweight design using aluminium and magnesium. It has a frequency response of 5Hz to 40,000Hz, a 3m cord and a gold plated audio jack.

Sony said: "Treat yourself to a more spacious, relaxed listening experience with a new range of open-type headphones from Sony. Beautifully styled and comfortable to wear, the MA series is tailored for great sound in the home – whether you’re watching TV, listening to a hi-fi, gaming or browsing videos on your PC or tablet."

The MDR-MA500 and MDR-MA300 both have a comfortable ear-fit mechanism designed for long periods of use. These, along with the MDR-MA100, have a 40mm driver.

The MRD-MA100TV is designed for use with a TV and has a similar specification to the MA100. However, the headphones have a 5m cord and an in-line volume control.

Sony said the range of MA headphones will be available from May.
