Color and Personality

Find out what your new favorite colorful headphones say about you

We recently published an article about how our music taste is a reflection of who we are. But what if the devices that we use to listen to our favorite songs — like our headphones — also reveal some things about our personalities?

Sony understands that headphones are a music lover’s daily accessory. And just like any accessory, it’s a reflection of an individual’s personal style. With so many options out there, how do you know which headphones are right for you?

It’s important to select headphones that will provide you with the best listening experience, but there’s one other fun factor that you might want to consider when making a purchasing decision — the color.

Scientific evidence reveals that there is a connection between color and personality. Faber Birren, renowned expert in color theory, said, “It is possible to make fairly accurate judgments about the meaning of color preferences and their revelations of personality traits.”

So, to ensure that all music lovers find the best headphones to match their personal style, Sony recently released the h.ear on High-Resolution Audio headband headphones, available in an array of vibrant colors.

h.ear on Headphones Top Features:

High-Resolution Audio sound quality: By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bitrate accuracy of each sample, the h.ear on headphones offer an uncompromised rendition of an artist’s music. Savor every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.

Smartphone-compatible with inline remote mic: Take hands-free calls and switch tracks without ever having to touch your smartphone, thanks to the inline remote and mic.

Dynamic HD drivers deliver authentic sound: 1.57” High-Resolution compatible HD driver units reproduce frequencies up to 60 kHz and deliver a powerful, responsive low range. The lightweight CCAW voice coils deliver a high-linearity response for stable, true-to-source high frequencies.

Titanium-coated diaphragm domes for superior clarity: Diaphragms with a titanium-coated dome give a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range. Sound energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform for a true and authentic performance.

Beat Response Control: Beat Response Control technology delivers a tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximizes airflow within the low frequency range, optimizing the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms.

Picking the Right Color for Your Headphones:

If you aren’t sure which h.ear on headphone color best reflects your personal style, here are the correlations that experts found between color and personality.

Blue: You are a successful hardworking individual, who is also sensitive to others and has a secure hold on his/her emotions.

Red: You want to live life to its fullest and are not afraid to express your emotions.

Black: You are artistic, sensitive and have a keen eye for details.

Yellow: You are very intelligent and are good at formulating plans, with the ability to think things through logically.
