Broke withing 3 months

I like the headphone but it is not worth. Its brittle. Mine didnt last even 3 months. I searched online and it seems a lot of people had this issue. Please avoid

Swivel broke after 3 months. Do not buy.

  • from Toronto, ON


I bought these headphones because they seemed like a good deal. The hangar (part that connects the earpieces to the headband) broke within a few months after dropping it one time. Shame on Sony for making this part out of plastic, which was clearly planned to break. Not able to fix it yourself easily unless you are very comfortable and talented with electronics. You can get better value and a more sturdy headphone from other brands.

must love bass and only bass

Extra bass is right : few headphone will give so much boum boum in your head. But that is only in your head and without your whole body resonating, it feels strange and, for me, annoying. Human voice (ie movies), treble and low frequencies do not sound right, like muffled. It is a personal call.

Pairing with Mac Air

It seems that I have a difficulty pairing these headphones with my MacBook Air ... My Mac is not able to detect them. Any suggestions on this issue?

  • from Calgary, AB

NO back up service

the headphones are great, but there's no back up service. Mine packed up after 15 months. I followed up with Sony who directed me to a website of repair options. There was one listed. I phoned them. They said they don't service this product t. I went back to Sony and a I got an apology. I sent a message to customer service at Best Buy, indicating that they should not stock a product for which there is no back up service if it is out of guarantee. I was told I could bring it back if it was in its original box, but that applies to a product that is 340 days old. Why do Sony supply a product that cannot be serviced And why do Best Buy stock it?

No Charge

Not sure if I got a lemon but these headphones have been nothing but a headache. So much so that I went back to my old wired sony headphones. 1) when connected to my computer to charge nothing happens 2) when I try and reset the headphones as per the instructions, nothing happens. 3) The bluetooth connection is weak. I have to reconnect multiple times before I get sound. 4) Im probably screwed to return them because they dont take returns on headphones. Oh and wearing them for an extended period of time makes your ears throb. Maybe the only good thing I can say is the sound is decent when they do work, and the battery life lasts quite awhile.

  • from London, ON

Great but tight on ears

Good quality and sound. Tight on ears and get tiring after an hour or so. More of an on-ear rather than an over-ear

  • from Surrey, BC


No good for any type of gaming sound up to 4 seconds behind video hope they take them back

  • from Calgary, AB

The worst product bought from BestBuy in years

If I could I will not give any star, but I have to... In two days I had to return two of these. The very first one would not charging.... Second one would not connect to any Bluetooth device in the house.... Very, very disappointed buy the quality of these headphones... Quit to create products in Asia , start to create these products in the real countries where the quality control IT IS REAL

  • from Kelowna, BC

fantastic for audiobooks

best I have ever owned at half the price of the supposed best out there. getting a second pair so one charges while other in service. I have always said Sony makes really good quality headphones at a really good price. the mdr zx330 are very good too. I have 2 pair!

  • from London, ON

Not Over-Ear

If you are looking for Over-Ear headphones, these are not it. Sound great but are not the best choice for all day comfort. It would be great if Best Buy would update the description.

  • from Chatham, ON

Great sound quality

The quality is great, noise cancelling is better than most of the competition. My only complaint is that they are not compatible with a wired connection too, it would be nice if they were backwards compatible for wired/wireless. I do love these headphones though, they play great with my Nexus phone :)

  • from Prince Albert, SK.

Awesome Headphones!

Great sound with lots of bass. 30 hours of listening on a single charge is unbelieveable but true. After initial charge, it charges in about 2 hours when low. Very easy to connect to Bluetooth with no cutting out. These are the best headphones I have ever owned and I've had quite a few. Sony blows the competitors away ...(even Bose which didn't sound as good as Sony). The only minimal downside is that your ears may become a bit sore after long listening periods if you have sensitive ears, in this case you might want to try the bigger , around ear headphones by Sony - model MDRX950.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Excellent headphones!

Great quality at a great price! Excellent battery life and sound quality!

  • from Vancouver, BC

very unhappy experience

Excited to receive my new Sony wireless earphones a month ago, but excitement has slowly gone down to zero; got one charge out of the battery then a half hour of the next charge and that was it; retailer doesn't carry replacement battery and said send it back to Sony; unable to get a response from Sony, so now what? All in all a pretty miserable experience.

  • from Hamiltion, ON


The only thing bad about this product is #1 no option for wired listening #2 no case that comes with it. Other than that it is a good pair of headphones with its long battery life and short charging time. 3.5/5 and wish it could pair with my PS4

  • from Mississauga, ON

Amazing sound!

Sound quality is perfect for me. Crisp with good blend of bass. I love it. The only problem for me is my ear tendon hurts after wearing this for a while. It does not completely covering my ear like my old Sony Headphone.

  • from Toronto, ON

It is great but I wish

I think it is a great product but I do not like the fact that the only way to charge it is by a computer. I wish that you could use a USB hub.

  • from Montreal

I Love it

I love it, it's really so cool and noise cancellation, just 1 missing option AUX, I though it has AUX as I need in the plane but it doesn't, However It's awesome.

  • from Cleveland, NS

Excellent product!!!

I bought these headphones on a Boxing day Sale (half price) after looking at many different brands and models. I received them, took them out of the box, tapped them against my phone (NFC) and was extremely happy with the sound quality of these headphones. I left my phone on the charger and walked around the house to test the range, I actually had to go outside and close the door before they would cut out! Great bass, great sound, great fit on my head and ears....Oh yeah!, I still haven't charged them (30 hour listening before needing to charge!..Go buy them!

I purchased this last boxing day, it was a great choice, and i love it, the sound quality and battery is overwhelming, recommend this product. Bass is purely sophisticated

  • from Ottawa

Great headphone, but not over-ear

Lovely headphones. No complaints, really. But I cannot give the full five stars because they should not be advertised as over-ear. They actually rest on your ears and, like any on-ear headphones, can cause some discomfort during long listening sessions.

  • from Vancouver

You can do better

The first thing you're going to want to do when you buy these headphones is turn your Bass's way down. The bass boost advertised blows the balance way out. It is also a pain to use. Not only is it Bluetooth only, but they can't be used while charging. So despite the good quality of the speakers themselves, in this price range you can get MUCH nicer headphones that are far more useful.

  • from Brampton, ON

Great Price, Great Product

Got these headphones on sale. Amazing sound quality in this price range. Easily as comfortable as more expensive headphones on the market. Highly recommend this Sony product.

  • from Mississauga, ON

These are NOT Over-Ear headphones

Over-Ear headphones have a cup design that when placed over the ear presses against ones head. These headphone are NOT Over-Ear since they sit on top of the ear. I'm giving a low rating since the description is completely wrong. While I did have these in my possession, I will admit the reviews on sound quality are accurate.

  • from Ottawa, ON

These are on ear, not over ear

I ordered two Sony over ear wireless headphones. These and another. They arrived and I was surprised to find out that these headphones fit on my ears, not over them. At first I thought it was my misunderstanding of what an over ear headphone was, but I opened the second "over ear" headphones box and found that they did actually fit over my ears, not on them. These are mislabeled.

  • from Halifax, NS

great product

Bought this for my dad for Christmas and he absolutely loves them! Great sound, very comfortable. all in all a great product!

  • from Scarborough, ON


Probably the most comfortable headphones I own. Sound quality is insanely good - underrated even. Battery life is unmatched. Buy this.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Best head phone I purchased ever.

I am happy to purchase it. Great sound with deep base. I have connected it with my laptop and cell phone great connectivity.I didn't try it with my TV. Battery life is good and stable.

  • from Toronto, ON

Such a fantastic over-ear headphone in this price range

I bought it about a month ago. It works perfectly, although I couldn't connect it to my Samsung TV. And that was because of my TV stupidity, not the headphone. The sound quality is satisfactory, battery holds up so well (I actually charged it once since I recieved it), and the bluetooth connection is stable.

  • from Windsor, ON


best headphone ever worth every penny
