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.
Summary: Got these from my brother who bought Senn-Momentum and he no longer need his first portable headphone so decided to give it a shot.
Gear used: WA7 FireFlies with EH golden pins Tubes as for the DAC and AMP, iFi-iUSB power supply, PC with Winamp+, also M-Stage (opa627)
Comfort: 1/5, they might be on ear, so clampy, no space at all!!! you have spend 2-3 mins trying to adjust them to create some space, and you have to do the same each time you put them on.
Pros: sound good with after EQing and long burn yet not for that price....
Cons: muffled sound without EQing, punchy bass that isn't tight , over priced.
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.
Excerpt: I'm not a specialist in sound. I don't have other extra bass headphone. I'm very happy with this product. Sony is one of the most famous brand about many products. I recomend this headphone for everyone.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
