Sony Fashion Over-Ear Headphones : Great Hedaphones

Portable Headphones
1

I wanted a new set of headphones as through wear and tear my original iphone headphones were starting to play up, and i was fed up with sticking them in my ears and trying to keep them there, so wanted over head ones instead. I bought these after reading all the other reviews and have to agree they have a great sound. I mainly use them with my iphone, and liked then so much i bought another pair for my daughters 18th birthday and she uses them with her ipod. I must say however that when wearing them to walk the dog one of the ear cups does press on my earlobe and after a bit i have to massage my ear and try to position the cup over my ear to stop it aching; hence only 4 stars. But for the price and the sound quality this is a small price to pay in my book.

These headphone are excellent for the price. They have a good seal around my ears so there isn’t a great deal of sound able to get in from the outside, but don’t believe that they are completely sound isolating, i can still hear traffic. The bass quality is excellent along with some decent mids. They are lacking a bit on the high end but this is expected for the price and the fact that they are single driver units. The flat cable is great, it’s yet to get tangled and seems incredibly durable. Some people are saying that the headband material is a bit thin and breaking on them, i’m yet to experience this. Overall a great set of headphones with good looks and decent sound, big selling point is the flat cable.

These literally just arrived and, while i normally take an age to get around to reviewing purchase, in this case i had to get my first impressions down while they were still fresh. After nearly 3 years of only ever listening to my music using my ipod earphones, i had just about lost the will to live: tinny, high-notes-heavy and just plain rubbish sound quality will do that to you. As you can imagine, i was practically salivating as i opened these and plugged them in. I thought that the best piece of music to ‘break these in’ would be handel’s hallelujah chorus (as you do). At first i honestly thought to myself ‘wow, these are a bit heavy on the bass’ – then i realised with horror that this song does actually have bass notes – it’s just been so long since i could hear it properly. The song gave me goosebumps. The shuffle kicked onto u2’s with or without you next (corny, you may think, but you have to admit there are few bands who can test out a sound system like u2 at full blast). Since then i’ve been through a few waterboys songs, and am currently listening to pink floyd: dogs of war, live in berlin. It’s like i’ve died and gone to heaven.

“Who needs Dre Beats?!, Highly recommend, Great Headphones”

Well done sony, quality in every way. I wanted a pair of headphone for my 8 year old boy, he is about to take his piano exam and practices a lot which i don’t mind as he does enjoys it, but his electric piano is right by where i sit, listening to the same three pieces of music can become tiresome, i thought i know i’ll get him a nice pair of headphones, hence the sony’s. I wanted a pair that felt comfortable for him, at 8 i didn’t want him shoving any in-ear headphones in to his young ears or a tight fitting pair of headphones which would put him off the piano. The sony’s were perfect, the sit nicely on his head and they look the part, which even to an 8 year old appears to be important, a friend of his has some skullcandy which are meant to be sick (what ever that means)i was quiet amazed at how good they sounded, the piano is a yamaha model (not the most expensive) which has built in speakers, its always sounded okay but the headphone made it sound a lot better, his vampire blues sounded amazing, high notes were crisp, bass was defined without thumping. When he went to to bed i hooked them up to my marantz cd and they really are excellent, i listened to a live recorded album and heard things that my speakers don’t pick up, astonishing for a pair of headphones that cost less than £50. I have a pair of monster headphones which i always thought were over priced but the sound was very good, the sony’s are better in my opinion, the sound was just more natural, the live album felt like a live show rather than a cd. Think i may just have to pinch them back of my son, his exam is a week times hopefully he wont want to practice as much. Well done sony, quality in every way.

Excellent headphones, really good sound and comfy. . I’ve been using these for a while now and i have to say i’m impressed. The sound is lovely, sweet treble and quite a punchy bass for such small cans. I’ve worn them for hours with no real discomfort. My only gripe is that the cord is white and flat which looks quite strange when the rest of it is black. No doubt this to look similar to another brand of headphonestheir sound is well isolated too so people around you cannot really hear them. All in all, really pleasant to use and great sound for the price.

If this is what heaven sounds like. Stylish, lightweight and comfortable, these headphones are the perfect size even for people with small heads like myself. I wear these at the lowest point and they fit perfect. Used mainly for my for ipod and laptop, i can wear these for hours without any discomfort, even when wearing glasses. I hardly notice they are on sometimes. I certainly like the cabling on these as it is completely flat which means it doesn’t tangle. As for sound quality you won’t find much better at this price. I listen to mostly trance music but these sound great with anything i have thrown at it. They produce a good amount of bass, not too much, not too little. I haven’t had any distortion even at full volume.

Sound is ok but not the build quality. Sound is okay for the price. What i don’t like about it is how easy the layer starts to crack and peel off.

Have owned these particular headphones for a number of years but they started to wear out, so purchased this pair to replace my old ones. Works brilliantly and sounds great. My previous pair lasted me well over 5 years so they were worth the price.

So, my headphones have finally died after 3 years and 9 months of use. I’ve used these near daily for years, shoved them in and out of bags and dropped them on the floor of the london underground frequently. I’ve attached a photo so you can see how they’ve worn. In the end, it was the splitting at the headphone jack that damaged them beyond use, and that’s only happened in the last month. I considered reinforcing the end with sugru but i figured it was time to move oni’m docking one star because the material used for the overhead part of the headphones was incredibly fragile, and started flaking and splitting within a few months of use. I ended up wrapping it with black electrical tape before it lost all of it’s cushioning. I think if i’d used less attractive tape i would have felt tempted to throw these away before 6 months of use. I think it’s worth noting that i’ve never received a complaint about how loud my music is, and i’ve used these in relatively fussy offices.

Affordable, funky headphones. . I purchased these for my teenage son to use with his smart phone. He loved the colour and design of them especially the red detail which added a pop to the usual black headphones typically available. They have a padded head piece and the ear pieces are also well padded creating a snug fit and ensuring the music doesn’t carry outside of the earphone so it doesn’t cause a disturbance to anyone around him. He also reports they are nice and warm in the winterthey have a long wire attachment to the phone/stereo etc. , ensuring he could have his phone in his messenger bag or pocket without any snags or pulling on the lead minimising the risk of accidental damage. The headpiece is adjustable for different head sizes and shapes and can be tucked down to the smallest size for storage. These are large headphones but they fit well, are lightweight and have lasted well. They keep the sounds in and my son reports the sound quality to be very good. Overall a well made, funky product at an affordable price.

Okay headphones bought as a backup. 2nd purchase so i guess they’re worth a punt but no more than that.

Bought these headphones as a present for my sister, and she absolutely loved it. There’s some sound leak, but nothing too serious. They look stunning in white, very comfortable to use, and the sound is good quality. For me, a must buy on this price range. You get a lot for little money.

Sound reproduction very good and comfortable on so long as you are sitting down,eg. If you are moving about or doing a job at home they tend to slip out of position and you are constantly adjusting their position. But i guess they are not designed for that sort of use, so it’s back to the ear plugs in those instances.

Brilliant headphones, the wires are thin and don’t get tangled.
Best part is how the ear phones can swivel so. They clearly block out outside noise, the sound is clear and crisp. You can hear and distinguish sounds clearly (i listen to a lot of rock and punk so the guitars and drums really come out clearly), best part is how the ear phones can swivel so they sit nicely around the neck and don’t stick out. And the wires themselves are flattened so they don’t tangle and can’t be broken as easily. I have had these for almost a year and they still sound incredible and still look brand new.

Sony MDR-XB500 Extra Bass Headphones – : An honest review.

It claims extra bass and thats what you get. I prefered this xb500 more than the sucessor xb600. As decribed, these headphones present a bass weighty response. That remaining said, the sound good quality is great for the cost, and the significant cusions give quite great noise isolation, provided there …
