      I really like these headphones. I am coming from a pair of monster turbine ear buds and the improvement in bass and sound is remarkable as you would expect going from buds (even high quality) to high end over ears. The feel of the set on your head is light and comfortable, while i haven't tried to much activity other than household chores I find it unrealistic to think that these are going to stay on during exercise or anything but every head is different. Sound quality wise, the bass is superb without much distortion. I feel that the other ranges are clear and well represented also. It should be noted also that there is a bass button which can be turned on or off depending on your activity. I love the NFC bluetooth connection which makes connecting to your phone a cinch every time. The onboard buttons are also easy to navigate due to tactile dots put on certain ones so you can tell which button you are on, this saves you digging for your phone or device to change song, pause or answer a call. The fold flat design is nice for packing but they do not fold any more compactly than shown in the picture. The materials feel like quality and the design is clean and crisp and not so loud as other brands are often. I was pointed to Sony headphones in general do to their long positive history of high end headphones and good reviews of models that came before this one. I also was deterred from beats because i have found that, in my opinion, while they do have good sound much of their price is spent on marketing and being a fashion icon rather than sound quality and their actual product. These are at a lower price point also compared to most models so that is also attractive. I was dissapointed because these come with absolutely no case, no bag or anything which is pretty irregular for high end headphones. Also you may be interested to know that the supplied charging cord is USB only and is only about 16 inches long so their probably won't be any listening while charging unless you like your head on the desk, but you can use the included audio cable for passive listening.

      I have had two pairs of these headphones in the last 5 months because the keeps breaking. Like physically falling apart! The earphone just somehow crack and separate from the headband. I gave it 3 stars because the sound is great and has an incredible battery life but I don't feel like replacing my headphones every 2-3 months.

      After 4 months it stopped working.

      Bought the headphone in JAN 2018, it worked fine until MAY 2018 when suddenly it stopped working, it will not charge or turn on anymore, completely dead.
      Interestingly enough warranty is limited to 90 days.
      Very disappointed.
      And it is a shame because, while it worked, it was a good headphone.

      Very poorly put together.

      I purchased two of these items, about two months apart. They actually work very well and the sound quality is great. No issues with the performance at all.
      Sadly, they are very flimsy, especially in the swivel area....both headsets failed (broke) in the same area, after a few months of very careful use. (Two different users). The retailer refused to repair or replace either headset!!
      I had to repair both items myself...superglue came to the rescue.

      Lesson to be learned...NEVER, EVER, hold the headset by the ear cups when putting on or taking the headset off! The swivel connection WILL break eventually. A close inspection during the repairs I did, showed that the swivel joint is about as strong as a piece of wet spagetti.

      The headphones are very nice but the owners manual is worthless. Nothing but a cartoon with no written instructions. When something happens your on your own to figure it out. Worse manual ever.

      These are super nice headphones. I got them for my birthday a couple years ago, and they work amazing! But recently, I went to plugged them in overnight, and when I got them in the morning, they hadn't charged at all! But I recommend these to anyone!

      I loved these headphones, used them occasionally and took care of them, but they just stopped working all of a sudden. They won't turn on and I haven't had them for a year! Not sure if they are under warranty but it's very frustrating!
