AMAZON shoppers have snagged a great bargain on a top-of-the-line pair of headphones as many are vying to grab at least a 30 percent discount.
Sony’s ZX series wired on-ear headphones with mic, the black MDR-ZX110AP, sell for less than $20.
According to the e-commerce giant’s website, the acclaimed headset is being sold at a 37 percent discount to $19 (was $29.99).
The ZX headphones are available in three different colors – black, white and pink – and also offer models with and without a microphone.
The price varies based on choices, and not having the microphone option could bring the cost of the black version of the Sony device down to just $9.99.
This sale is also higher with a price reduction of 50 percent.
Although most buyers looking for the best technology will likely want the microphone feature among the multiple features listed for the 4.5 star rated product.
According to the product description, Sony offers the ZX series wired on-ear headphones in a lightweight design with “neodymium dynamic drivers” for a holistic sound experience.
Sony boasted that the feature “gives a punchy, rhythmic response to even the most demanding titles.”
The company also emphasized the portability of the headphones, noting that their folding properties make it easier for users to travel and allow for easy storage.
Although it’s difficult to compete with the padded ear cushions that offer user comfort and encapsulated sound as the “enveloping, closed-back design locks in the sound”.
This sound is amplified by the headphones’ frequency range, which is specified as 12 Hz (Hertz) and 22 kHz for optimal “bass, rich mids and high treble”.
The Sony ZX series wired on-ear headphones also come with a carrying case and tangle-free wiring for the auxiliary plug.
The headphones received multiple five-star reviews from fans, with an overall rating of 4.5 stars from over 100,000 responses.
“Great for the price. Very good sound quality. Very well designed. Comfortable,” wrote one shopper.
“Very cute, fits me perfectly, received the package quickly and very happy with my purchase for the price,” repeated another.
A third added: “Fine for normal use.”
Amazon also listed several other options on offer that could be comparable to Sony’s ZX series wired on-ear headphones if buyers want to opt for a different design.
The JLab Neon Folding On-Ear Headphones came in at an even lower price of $14.99 and received a similar overall rating of 4.5 stars from over 150,000 reviewers.
A similar pattern was seen with the ELECDER i45 on-ear headphones, listed at $15.99 with the same rating.
