Best headphones I've owned
Excellent sound quality and comfort. Bass is thumping and volume is plentiful. I tried several JBL products and this Sony product outperformed those headphones by a mile in sound quality, comfort and style. It'd been a while since I had purchased any Sony products and I am very happy. I'm not sure about durability, but I will handle these headphones gently and take care of them and hopefully they'll last several years.

Amazing headphones!
I got this few days ago and it's absolutely amazing the sound quality is amazing and the transparency mode is great, the extra bass is also excellent and the headphones themselves are very comfortable to wear and the touch controls are great. The noise cancelling is decent but could be better. Overall great headphones.

Bought the blacl one a year agp. Now the blue obes were on sale so bought them too! Now always have one pair fully charged. Tested thr xm4s with little better ANC but they cant beat these ones in the sound, so fulfilled and open! One question; why doesnt Sony use the great texture of plastic of these in all their headsets? No scratches and smudge whatsoever...they always look new! Great work Sony! Soo satisfied with my 2 pairs if these great NC headphones!!!

Poor quality headphones
I bought these headphones a couple of months ago and one side is already broken! Poor quality headphones that are definitely not worth your money.
