Summary: I have iPod headphones and Beats for every day listening as well as Bose and Able Planet noise canceling headphones which are both remarkable but I wanted something for work to tune out the noise and provide a dynamic range for the music. Beats are all bass and I felt like I was missing something and compared to the Sonys I was. The Sonys headphones have all of the bass of the Beats and still provide mid tones and high notes.
Excerpt: Bought these in summer 2013. They sounded great. After about four months, the fabric covering the left ear started to deteriorate and by six months it had shredded. I covered it with tape and continued to use them. Around the 12 month mark the fabric covering the right ear started to come apart too. That was enough.
Excerpt: Pros: The Look - I love the modern retro look of these headphones. The brown and black just works.Comfort - These are so soft on the ears. I love the new design of the padding. The bass - it booms! But everything else sounds good too.Cons: Construction - they just feel a bit flimsy. I don't know how long these will last, but for $ I still think these are worth itSize - Even at the smallest adjusted size these are a bit big on me.
Conclusion: I bought these a month ago, and have not been disappointed for a second. The headphones were just as described, and are great quality for the cost. They were shipped quickly and in the original box-brand new. I use them everyday and love them!
Conclusion: What can I say, phenomenal pricing and Sony quality which happened to be one-half of what other places charge!!! Not only that but I didn't get charged sales tax or shipping either! When I saw this, I returned the pair I had bought elsewhere for a savings of $65.00 in all. Thank you Sonic Electronix!
