The secret to the EB900 Headphones appears to be the 8.5mm micro-drivers and the Comply™ Memory Foam Tips. The micro-drivers provide deep, solid bass combined with excellent mid and top-end clarity. Vocals sounded very clear and open and the overall sound was very full. The TDK headphones come with Comply Memory Foam Tips that expand to fit the shape of almost any ear canal. Additionally, soft silicone tips in four sizes are provided to place over the earpieces. Because the Memory Foam Tips expand in the ear canal, they offer superior noise reduction and comfort. Sounds from the surrounding environment are effectively reduced almost as if the headphones had a noise cancellation feature.
Its braided cord resists tangling and is adjustable via a cord slider and the headphones come with a carry case for mobile use. They do not include an audio adapter for use with airline sound systems.
There is nothing particularly elaborate about the design of the EB900 Headphones, nor do they have a lot of fancy features, such as a volume control or noise canceling – they simply offer great performance and comfort. I must point out that the packaging is very high quality, suggesting that its contents are likewise.
