The most comfortable noise cancelling headphones with microphone we have tried to date. Efficient padding makes these headphones seat comfortably around your ears and the larger cup makes it comfortable for more ear sizes. The fit over the ear instantly blocks out the ambient noise. Although they are large cups the case is Not oversized and fits perfectly in your backpack for on the go listening. With a weight of 9.8 oz these will not weigh you down at all. Sony has added an app that pairs with this headset allowing you to adjust the sound to your preference. Our favorite setting are EQ: -1 on 400 Hz. +1 on 1K. +2 on 2.5K. +3 on 6K. +4 on 16K and “Clear Bass” at 0. Perfect crisp and clear sound. I guess it depends on your music preference. If you are listening to hip hop you may want to increase the Bass but you can quickly adjust it on the fly with the easy to use app. This was quite amazing in our opinion.
Sony's noise cancelling technology is far above the competitors we have tried. I mean it virtually eliminates all external sounds. All you hear is the headphones. We tried it in a busy marketplace to see if it could block out all the noise and we were pleasantly surprised at the results. I could not hear my wife talking right next to me with the music off! Couldn't ask for more. USB-C charger works well with my Android phone and I can use one charger between my two devices.
Overall a solid pair of headphones. I would put these against any other set on the market today and these are sure to be on the top of the list. They are moderately priced but well worth the investment. The headst looks great as well. Very sleek and clean edges make them stylish to boot. Sony has outdone themselves with this model.
