Sony Netherlands opens Xperia X pre-orders; bundles free Sony MDR-XB650BT wireless headphones

by XB on 29th April 2016

in Xperia X series


Xperia X Netherlands offerPre-orders for the Sony Xperia X are already live across third-party retailers, as previously reported. However, we have been waiting for Sony Mobile to open up their own pre-orders across Europe, particularly as some offers have been promised. Whilst we still await Sony to open its own pre-orders across most European regions, it looks like Sony Netherlands has decided to jump the gun.

Sony Netherlands has teamed up with various Dutch retailers such as MediaMarkt.nl, CoolBlue.nl, Mobiel.nl, BelSimpel.nl and BOL.com, to include a free wireless headset with each Xperia X pre-order. This seems like a good incentive, especially if you were already planning to lay down €599 for the Xperia X anyway. We’ll bring you news of other Sony Europe offers as soon as they go live.

The headset in question is the Sony MDR-XB650BT EXTRA BASS Bluetooth wireless over-the-ear headphone, which retails for around the £100/€130 mark. The headset includes a 30mm neodymium driver unit which helps to deliver deep, punchy bass and has a 30-hour battery life.

    Good deal.

  • Ambitious Man

    basshead like this. tks a lot.

  • Solano89

    So you pay the phone and the headset too, where is the bundle/ offer?

  • Ailan Hidaz

    It’s the only way to justify the price tag for the Xperia X I guess.
    Too bad this offer won’t be available for other areas :(

  • Solano89

    599-130 euros would be a price closer to reality (with a normal, standard SONY headset bundled as once ago)!

  • Solano89

    So you pay the phone and the headset too, where is the bundle/ offer?

  • Eduardo Otero

    Wait a minute!
    What’s the price!!???

  • Great Dude

    No , you pay for the phone and would get the $130 worth headphone for free

  • Great Dude

    €599

  • Eduardo Otero

    That’s what we expect to pay but now there’s no new price given nor by XperiaBlog neither by Sony in that pre order.

  • Solano89

    I know! :) But that phone is not worth 599$, not in a million life, so you pay for the phone and they are forcing you to buy a headset to (maybe you want it and you need it and maybe you don’t need one and you’ll never use it)! :D GREAT DEAL! This would have been a deal when the package had the 449$ price tag, just sayin’!

  • Great Dude

    Sorry I got you now
    :)

    Hello
    CORA chainstores here in Belgium are already promoting it in its upcoming promo leaflet, without any release date while anyway the folder offers do start on May 3.
    They’re regularly promoting items that are not released when leaflets are distributed.
    (they’re on page 45 here: https://issuu.com/corafolders/docs/03_05_fr_sans_flaps/1?e=1837294/35177740)

  • Little Man

    I’ve never done this but reselling the headphones may gain you back some of the price for the phone.

  • DarkMaster

    LOL look at the price of Samsung A5 €400 for SD615 .

  • Eduardo Otero

    Let’s see, I hope it change because 599 is too much for the Xperia X.

    It wont gain you back much. The internet will be swamped with people selling off their new headsets, killing the 2nd hand price.
    I got a Xperia Z at release, with some headphones that sold new for 200e (something like that). On day 1 people tried selling them for 150e and on day 3 they were selling for 60e. I kept mine (great headphones) and a buddy of mine picked up some for 60e, unused.

  • Deads

    Lower the price to 399e for the Xperia X and add the free headphones for preorders and its a good deal.

  • Deads

    Some might join in. In the past Sony has done this before and some regions offered headphones and others offered nothing or a charging dock.

  • Deads

    Made the same argument on a forum, the die hard Sony fans keep defending the price of the X as being ok, because Sony optimizes the software better.

    The X should be 399/449, thats it. Id buy it in a heartbeat for that price and that price would be completely in line with its specs.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    I want Xperia Ear bundeled in that price. :-) . Would buy it without second thought then.
    Meanwhile sony warrants X battery will perform as new up to 2 years of usage…

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    A9 costs 550-600€
    SD 652, bigger screen, lousier camera, shortlife battery, no stereospeakers
    Considering Samsung and apple…
    This price is reasonable…
    You get the headset too

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    It is expensive, but considering samsung, apple or htc…its reasonable

  • Deads

    Il give you Apple but no, the Xperia X is stupidly overpriced for an Android device. The X costs 595 euro, i can pick up an S7 with far superior specs for 30 euro more. I can pick up an A5 with specs that arent that much worse for 330 euro.

    Yeah i know that the prices will drop when the phones become available, but that wont by 150 to 200 euro, and the X needs to drop by that much to be actually interesting to people.

  • DarkMaster

    A5 2016 is €400 but you can get M4 aqua for €250 with the same specs. i agree that price is high but not higher than samsung or apple…

  • DarkMaster

    Exactly and compare M4 aqua €250 with A5 that costs €400…I don’t get it why people think that only Sony is overpriced ?

  • Deads

    The A5 2016 can be had for 335 euro in the Netherlands and thats still a bit to much for the specs tbh.

    And i think you mean the M5, because the M4 is a budget phone that isnt even close to the A5 on specs. .

    The M5 is similar to the A5 and is a nice phone but overpriced, it costs 370 and should be below 300 euro.

    The price is to high compaired to what Samsung and HTC offer in the same price range. For the same price you get a Samsung with far superior specs.

  • Deads

    It will change but not to where it should be. I expect a 50 euro price drop from Sony and that it the month of release the price drops another 50 euro. So 499. Thats still 100 to 150 euro to much.

  • Bob

    Sadly… Sony will never offer a promotion like this in Canada or the United States. No wonder they are doing so bad in North America. What a waste!!

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    I seriously don’t see any reasons why Xperia X (even the X Performance) could sit at €599. It really has no better features than competitors who are offering at lower prices.

  • Lol, they should bundle a free Xperia X with it instead, or maybe two or three, that way they will ship more than 1.5 million sets this quarter muahahaha :D

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    I would never pick a samsung
    But go pick one for yourself…
    Alais…you could pick S7 for 30 euros more, its too expensive also.
    But why would a sane person pick that over z5 that is 100euros less, or even z5premium for the same price.?!?

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    A5 not much worse? Please, dont insult intelligence.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    That guy just compared A5 to Xperia X…!?
    See the fallacy in their logic?
    Xperia X is expensive, but comparing it to devices that are already out for months and had price cuts already, like s7, is just wrong…
    why not then go into 2015 then and compare price for benefit also?

    That way of logic A sane person should pick an Xperia Z2 then, before any samsung s7, s6, a5, or xperia z5, z3, X…

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Should compare M5 for 300€ to that overpriced samsung A5 for 350-400€…

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    M5 is 300€… Much, much better specs than overpriced samsung A5.
    M4aqua(lower screen res and 8 gb only but sd card) is actually closer to A5 specs and costs 150€ less

    Just please stop comparing samsung prices to sony prices, you cant win that argument…they are about the same for newly released phones…

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    When you say ” can be had for…”, it goes for any phone including Xperia X once its out
    I can certainly say Xperia X will ” can be had for…” 520€ by some internet resellers, once its out.

    When comparing price on amazon or some other site, compare prices exactly on amazon or that other site…

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Not bad.. But i purchased z5 premium at the launching day and get free smartwatch3

  • HAWX

    My Xperia Z’s battery still performs good after 3 years. Instrad of Xperia X I would buy LG G4 for better camera better battery and better performance for almost half of the price LoL.

  • HAWX

    M series and Compact models are well priced only.

  • DarkMaster

    M4 aqua comes in 16BG variant also !! so only screen resolution is different but you have waterproofing on M4.
