Sony UK Releases Wireless Headphones, Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

Posted by at 11:37 pm on March 30, 2011

Sony UK this week introduced two new sets of headphones. The large, over-the-ear MDR-RF865RK set has a wireless range of up to 100 meters (nearly 330 feet) and sports built-in batteries that are recharged when the set is returned to its stand. They have 40mm drivers for solid audio performance and a built-in volume control. A full recharge takes 3.5 hours, with battery life rated at 25 hours.

The smaller MDR-NC13 noise cancelling in-ear headphones are meant for travelers. Sony said they can reduce ambient noise by 87.4 percent. A manganese battery ships with the set, but adding a single AAA alkaline battery will result in a total claimed life of 100 hours.

Both headphones will ship in April, though Sony hasn’t revealed pricing for either yet.
