Excellent..only if you have the proper seal.
These sound amazing. On the the warm side, but very entertaining. Bluetooth works very good and have had no dropout issues. The noise canceling works very well when fitted properly to your ear and when set up with the Sony app. A cool addition that actually photos your ears and uses that to analyze and set the proper setting in the earbuds. And yes it did work. The earbuds that come with it didn’t fit my ears and the sound quality and noise canceling were poor. In fact I was going to return them. Fortunately I have some COMPLY earbud tips that fit these and also gave me the proper seal for listening. A world of difference. The sound was excellent and outside the noise canceling worked great on my commute to work. For that reason I am keeping them. Mainly for the noise canceling. Perfect!
