Summary: I bought these to replace my ancient blaupunkt headphones that I dropped and broke. I read the reviews and these ones seemed promising so I thought I'd give Sony a try. I was sorely disappointed. They sound utterly dreadful, no clarity of the music and terrible distorted bass.
Summary: Very good audio quialty as you would expect from Sony but unfortunately that's were it stops. These ate very uncomfortable after 40minutes use and also the plastic creeks and squeaks every time you move your head. I would stay away from these
Excerpt: Tested for 2 weeks. Sounds very impressive. BUT .. They creak constantly and became uncomfortable after 20 minutes or so. (I do have quite big ears though!!). Sent back today for a refund. Sorry.
Summary: How this got so many high ratings I just don't know. It looks good but it hurt my ears. Wore them to bed, feel asleep... A couple of hours later woke up to a cut on one of my ears and a tremendous headache. The inside is not hollow enough, but just rests on the shell of the ears.
Not what I was expecting from "over ear" ..extremely painful after 10-20 mins of use

Summary: I bought these headphones for £40. I wanted a comfortable pair of headphone which do not rest on my ears. After buying these I discovered over ear actually means on ear(they rest on top of your ears) and what I wanted was "around the ear" or "over the ear"(they rest around the outside of your ears..
