Sony is kicking off pre-orders for their Xperia Z in the UK and offering a special treat for anyone reserving the flagship handset within the next month. Available for as low a price as free on a two-year contract (depending on carrier), the Android 4.1 smartphone will come with a set of MDR-1R headphones, a $299 value. You do the math.

The Xperia Z features a 5-inch, 1080p display, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, and will be available in white, black, and an O2-exclusive purple paint job. Carriers have said the handset will launch on February 28th, though Sony has been a bit more coy. The date, however, lines up with the free headphone offer, which ends February 27th.

The Xperia Z was already shaping up to be a rather tempting phone, but Sony sure knows how to sweeten the pot. We can only hope a similar offer follows the phone to other regions upon release.
