5Better than Beats Studio!
By Rafael Nieves
Love these headphones. I've been searching nonstop for good wireless headphones that are loud and have good thumping bass. I thought it would be be the beats studio but the bass on those rattle at high levels. I head about these Sonys in a few reviews. After weeks of checking out YouTube videos and other reviews I finally decided to get them and I am very very happy with them. Loud, comfortable, great bass, wireless, inexpensive. They are perfect!

3Amazing sounding headphones, when they work.
By C. Young
These headphones sound great, when they work. The Extra Bass setting is also nice, for certain types of music. I also like the placement of the controls on the headphones. With a little practice, it is easy to turn the Extra Bass on and off, adjust the volume, pause songs, and skip to the next song. The ease of using these controls is especially important with the Extra Bass setting. On some songs, it sounds amazing, but on others, it becomes a bit too muddy, so you have to turn it off; therefore, it is a huge plus that this can be done without removing the headphones.

The sound quality with music and other media is good, and when I make phone calls using these head phones, the call quality is rich and full, and much better than talking directly on my cell phone. I haven't had a chance to hear the other end of the call yet, but from what people have told me, the volume and sound quality of the built-in mic is quite good.

I've only had one issue with these headphones, but it is a big one. About half the time, when I establish a bluetooth connection with either my computer or phone, the sound volume will slowly rise and fall, like a wave. One second the sound will be loud, rich, and full, and the next second it will fade away into a tinny-sounding whisper. If I kill and re-establish the connection a couple of times, it will work fine again, but this is really annoying, and not something I find even remotely acceptable with headphones that cost as much as these do. I have a pair of wireless Bose, and also a set of in-ear Beats headphones, neither of which have this problem. If it weren't for this one issue, I would give these headphones five stars.

5Comfortable, Premium sound. Get them now!
By Snakes200
Clean bass and the mids and highs aren't that bad either in my personal opinion. I use them frequently on bluetooth on my phone and on my computer. Does everything I want them to do beautifully. I am considering maybe getting a second pair or just picking up the N1's We will see what happens however. Would i reccommend these to someone in the market for over the ear headphones? Yes. Why? Because sony makes good headphones for 1 and for 2 they are comfortable. I have fallen asleep with these on and didn't even notice they were there. Simply put I love these cans.
