  • Summary: Build quality and looks: These cans look very stylish. I like the silver disk-like design on the top of the earcups, similar to xb90ex. These headphones are quite sturdy, I expect them to be durable. Comfort: These are among the most comfortable headphones I ever worn.
  • Pros: powerful bass impact, dark sound, soundstage, good treble, comfort, price
  • Cons: the earcups, slightly veiled mids

  • Excerpt: Der Sony ist ein Modell der unteren Mittelklasse, weshalb man durchaus Ansprüche an seinen Sound stellen kann. Wir meinen, dass sich dieses Modell vor allem für Hip Hop- und R’n’B-Fans eignen wird.
  • Pros: Erstklassige Verarbeitung, Stylishes Design, Leicht zu verstauen, Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Basslastiges Klangbild
  • Cons: Kein ausgewogenes Klangbild, Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden
