Just take a look at the Sony MDR-Z1000's performance in the best high end headphones category from last year's Tech Awards. As of today Sony has introduced seven new products in their headphones range. Four of the new models come with an over-ear design while the rest are in-ear versions.

While the last release from Sony featured Balanced Armature technology the new headphones, which will be sold as the Extra Bass series, feature dynamic drivers. The Extra Bass models are a nod to the current trends of low frequency heavy music which is highly popular among the younger demographics. Advanced Direct Vibe Structure offers a tight enclosure so that the devices can meet the target of delivering powerful bass. Additionally, Capacity Optimization allows for the adjustment of the front diaphragm's ability to fine tune the tone balance for mids and highs.
