Expert review by: Nathaniel Wilkins (

Sony MDR-Q55SL review: Sony MDR-Q55SL


Exceptional bass presence; clear midrange and treble; bandless earclip design; braided cord with an extension.

No carrying case; no replacement earpiece pads.

The three Q55SL earclip 'phones emphasize style without sacrificing performance.

Product Specifications

Sony's new MDR-Q55SL/Blue A.I.R. Headphones combine quality technology and a trendy look. If you have an active lifestyle, and the heart pounding bass of Hip Hop and Rock are what you crave, "AIR" will breathe new life into your songs. Their open-air, clip-on design is headband-free, so they slip directly onto the ear and won't interfere with your hairstyle. Featuring a spring action earpiece designed to comfortably cradle various-sized ears, these headphones enable a snug fit, which minimizes sound leakage, offering consistent audio quality. With a 30-mm driver and neodymium magnet, they also deliver a clean sound with lower distortion. In addition, a large turbo duct offers a more powerful, deep bass. Each unit in the Elements of Style line also features a gold-plated mini-plug, adjustable cord and tangle-free cord slider. The lightweight and comfortable A.I.R. Headphones... make them an essential part of your audio on-the-go ensemble. It's a fashion accessory must have!
