" ...  If you want to hear music like it was meant to be heard, grab yourself a pair of these. ... I listen to basically every type of music, from country, rock, rap and EDM ... everything sounds good through these cans.  ...  "

" ...  The only thing i dont agree is the quality of the materials they are not from a headphones the cost 350 dollars, but the sound and espcially the noise cancelling is impressive, its tecnology is unique on the market  ...  "

" ...  On par with Bose, which was my go-to for noise-canceling but their offering kept clipping out three or four times per song and I lost patience. ... I really just wanted a decent pair of Bluetooth noise-canceling headphones and these do the trick nicely if you are willing to tolerate the cold-weather reboots.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound, comfort, quality and reliablity, features, battery life, and value. ... I know some have complained about the sound quality not being as balanced as the Bose QC 35 series II, but I also want to counter that by saying that the Sony app has an equalizer built in that really helps balance out the sound. ... When I hook them up to my computer, the EQ on my soundcard allows me to make them sound natural, and does not make the sound feel very fake, as it happens when you mess with the natural sound of headphones. ... Honestly just a great sound and fantastic listening experience.  ...  "
