Some European Xperia Z5 Compact pre-orders to include free MDR-10RC headphones
Eyeing one of them newly announced Sony Xperia Z5 Compact phones? Truth is, not that many people outside of Japan are interested in sub 5-inch display smartphones, so we understand if your sights are set elsewhere. This may also be part of the reason why Sony is generously throwing in a pair of MDR-10RC headphones with Xperia Z5 Compact pre-orders in Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden.

Mind you, this is a pair of $120 earphones we're talking about, not a complimentary pair of buds. The foldable earphones boast cushions, 40mm neodymium drivers, sculpted air vents, an inline remote and mic, and their own travel pouch. All in all, the MDR-10RC looks like a pretty decent piece of kit, although their evened-out frequency response probably won't jibe with fans of phat hip hop and techno beats. But hey, you can't beat free, and these cushions should help keep your ears warm in the cold Nordic weather!

As for the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, this is indeed a compact, but thick 8.9mm handset with a 4.6-inch 720x1280 resolution screen and IP68-certified water and dust-resistance. It is powered by an ubiquitous Snapdragon 810 SoC/2GB RAM configuration, offers a fearsome 23MP rear camera and a 5MP snapper, along with a 2,700mAh battery and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. An impressive little smartphone it is!
