Their clever design and ear cup cushions help seal in the sound and eliminate creaks, for a truly superior audio experience.

The Sony Xperia Z’s visual experience is equally impressive, with its razor sharp clarity and 5” full HD Reality Display. This is further enriched by Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, delivering exceptional screen intelligence such as high quality colour management, sharpness enhancement, real-time contrast optimisation and noise reduction, while its OptiContrast panel helps eliminate reflection even in bright sunlight.

Drawing on the expertise and components used in leading Sony cameras, the Xperia Z’s 13MP fast-capture camera means you’ll never miss a moment, and features Exmor RS for mobile – the world’s first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones – so it can effortlessly capture crystal clear photos and videos even in low light conditions.

The Sony Xperia Z not only looks beautiful – with its subtly rounded edges and smooth reflective surfaces held together by an innovative skeleton frame – its super slim 7.9 mm form is tough and durable, made from glass fibre polyamide with tempered glass panels. Dust and water resistant up to 1 metre, the Xperia Z can withstand water jets and will keep going even after 30 minutes submerged under water. Combined with its anti-shatter film, the Xperia Z is tough enough to handle whatever comes its way.
