" ...  This is a bad product if you love music or enjoy it because it does not give you a great sound Quality. ... I been in the music business a while and I hear better with other headphones with a less price.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For me, the much-improved sound quality of music is the most dramatic improvement and the most unexpected, although all the improvements add up to make these vastly improved over the XM2's.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I LOVE LISTENING TO MUSIC WITH THESE! ... Bonus: the active noise cancelling drowns out the sound of my wife complaining that all I’m doing anymore is listening to music.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound quality is also excellent, but the noise cancelling is the best.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I've had some Bose headphones for years but these are so much better.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Paired with my fantastic sound card, my volume hovers at around 20% and it's loud enough with the noise cancelling to block even my own voice. ... The reason I didn't give this 5 stars is even though its build quality is exceptional, the sound quality is exceptional, and the battery is rated for a whopping 30 hours which is very good, I simply cannot excuse Sony's use of a puny little usb c cable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Overall these sound quite good, and will make most people very happy. ... Seems like no compromise in sound quality with NC turned on.  ...  "

" ...  Well, to begin with this is my first noise cancelling headphone so I can't really compare it with others but I have to say that this product itself is just amazing! ... Sound quality is very very good, noise cancelling just blew my mind, battery life is also very good.  ...  "

" ...  I have no complaints except for one if you sweat too much buy earpad coverings it will prevent the sweat from running inside between the padding and headphone plastic( thats if you use them to workout and sweat too much) sound quality is great theres no complaint at all.  ...  "

comment
