Press release   •   Aug 01, 2013 16:00 BST

This autumn see’s the launch of the new Panasonic HXD Series of Headphones. Available in a wide selection of colours, the HXD Series is about the freedom of choice. Choose the way you listen to music and choose your look, as with the HXD Series you can appreciate your music in style.

Two models will be available in the series; HXD3 and HXD5, with all models sharing the minimal design concept with a variety of colours to offer excellent choice. Headphones are not only a listening device, but also a fashion statement and the HXD Series will be the best option to fulfil those needs with its great sound and urban aesthetics.

HXD3: Bi-texture Combination

With coloured metal housing on a matt surface frame, the combination of these two materials makes HXD3 outstanding in appearance. The soft silicone head pad not only enhances the design appeal of the model, but also stays comfortably on your ear without slipping and is the ideal material for noise isolation. Universally appealing with minimal design, and available in five colours, HXD3 will appeal to a wide range of music lovers.

HXD5: Experimental minimal design

HXD5 is the extreme example of minimal industrial design. The ring shaped accent colour on the housing makes this model look like a real museum piece. Available in two colours; white and titanium black. Beside the outstanding design, there is no compromise in sound quality with a large 40mm driver unit together with a soft synthetic leather pad offering quality sound with a compact housing.

“With the HXD Series, we wanted to introduce not only a clear sound, but a fresh and sharp design allowing music lovers to have the best of both worlds. The HXD Series headphones lend themselves to a variety of styles whilst still providing the great technology we pride ourselves upon.” comments Helen Booth, Headphone Product Manager at Panasonic UK.
