Product Specifications

Sony MDR-501LP lightweight open-air headphones are comfortable to wear, even for extended periods, and their unique cirum-aural design provides an excellent fit for any size head that allows for fatigue-free listening. The oversized 40mm diameter drive units are larger than most headphones for noticeably deeper bass, lower distortion and wider dynamic range; frequency response extends down to an amazingly low 12Hz. The self-adjusting headband conforms precisely to the curve of your head for a fit that stays comfortable, even after listening for hours on end, and the angle-adjustable housing pivots the earcups for maximum comfort.
