There are definitely different approaches to this. Unless they've got something really tricky going on, the Sony thing is probably an adjustment for the distance between your ears, which makes some difference in the modeling. A more sophisticated approach is to get a scan of your HRTF that takes into account the way sound is filtered based on the shape of your upper torso, shoulders, head, and especially the unique pinnae of your ears. This can be done with special speakers and microphones in a lab setting, the "acoustic" approach, and a few companies are working on modeling this from 3D photo scans, or even a scan of your head using a smartphone.
