The opinion states:

Dear customer,

With the pre-order for the Xperia ™ XZ Premium from Sony, we wanted to thank you for your loyalty. Due to the exceptionally high number of registration numbers that could not be foreseen, we were unable to supply the Sony MDR-100 ABN headphones to all pre-buyers since the supply was exhausted. As a result, we had to terminate the action earlier in accordance with our terms of participation. In order to meet the high demand nevertheless, we decided to open a second action with the Sony MDR-ZX770 BNB headphones from the 24.06.2017.

Customers who have made their registration before June 24, 2017, and still have the cheaper headphones, should contact Sony and connect their pre-order action number and their name to The company promises processing within 2 business days.

Soundsystem as compensation

The  Sony MHC-V11 One Box sound system is also sent free of charge and can also keep the Bluetooth headphones. The value of the system is around 220 euros, it offers a Bluetooth function, a CD and DVD player and a karaoke function.
