    Almost outstanding...

    These are excellent Bluetooth headphones for music. Comfortable to wear, outstanding battery life, and very good noise cancellation make them a great choice for active use or travel. The music is clear and crisp, and the extra bass boost makes the small buds sound balanced and clean. But there's a problem with calls. While I could hear the caller clearly, everyone I spoke with told me I sounded like I was in a gymnasium. This means I can't really wear them when I might be receiving or making a call. And it's too bad, since for music they're as good as you'll find in this price range. If you want a set of buds that will play clear music while blocking outside noise, with a bonus of picking up a call in a pinch, look no further. If you want something that you can use to make and receive clear calls, the WI-SP500 is a better choice.

    Going to be returning these. While I enjoy the sound when I'm playing music, when I'm on calls, I'm told that the mic quality is exceptionally poor and I sound muffled.

    These are great headphones for activities and listening to music. If you are using them for occasional use, then they aren't the best. They will slide off your neck if you don't have them in your ear. Also during calls, the person I was speaking to couldn't hear me well. I tried to make adjustments of where it's placed on my neck, but they still were unable to hear me. I think for music during activities these are great, but for calls and daily occasionaly use, I'll stick with my "daily driver."

    For the price that it was it fell short. Sound when listening music was great. Where it failed was phone calls, everyone I called could not hear me and would hear partially and a lot of static.

    The sound quality is good for music and watching videos, however when making a phone call the feedback of your surroundings that is picked up by the mic and pushed back through the headset makes it frustrating to use the phone. The ear pieces, even though I'm using the smallest adaptors hurts the insides of my ears so I'm constantly having to adjust them. I'm returning them.

    I got excellent quality when listening to music, but when it came to calls, I got reports of sounding muffled or underwater. Also they wouldn't stay in my ears even after trying the adjustable ear pieces. Not satisfied.

    Great sound quality. Music sounds perfectly balanced. Just the right amount of bass. Only thing is that some people I talk to say my voice sounds a little rough on their end.

    Great earbuds overall for all types of music. The only problem I had was taking calls the caller can hear all the environmental noise surrounding you. I hope they can work on that little issue on the following model. Other than that SONY always delivers.

    The first day I got them, after charging for an hour and a half, I just paired them directly to my Samsung Galaxy S6+ via Bluetooth which couldn't have been easier and was found instantly. Since I had to got to work and I really just wanted to see how they sounded using my phone as an mp3 player, I just used the Samsung music. After making a few adjustments in the app through the equalizer and wow, I couldn't believe how good my music sounded on the Sony SP600N and they sound as good as the Sony WI1000X headphones and slightly better than the JBL Under Armour Flex Wireless behind-the-neck headphones. I believe that the sp600n headphones are more comfortable than the behind-the-neck headphones with the slightly annoying controller box wired into the wire on the left side and pulls towards that side. It'sn't a deal breaker but it is worth noting. I didn't download the app for a few day's and when I finally did was before going to work driving a truck so I could test out the noise cancellation. When I installed the Sony headphones app, they also give you the option of installing the Sony Music app which I did along with some other apps but these we're the only two that I downloaded. So that night through the next morning I tried calling 3 different people and it didn't seem to matter who I called or which settings I turned on or off. Every call was terrible and had static that I was unable to correct whether or not I used the noise cancellation or not and so I decided to try my JBL Under Armour Flex Wireless behind-the-neck headphones and they sounded perfect to both myself and whoever I was talking to on the line. I have not yet tried uninstalling the app's yet but will be doing that today before going to work in order to figure out where the static problems are coming from but i'm pretty sure that one of the app's are causing the static, so unfortunately I can only give the Sony SP600N semi wireless headphones a 4 until I can figure out what is causing the static during calls and the short battery life when using the noise cancellation. The battery life wasn't to bad before installing the app when I was only listening to music they lasted for a little over 5 hour's but after installing the app's and only using them for phone calls with using noise cancellation for 4 of the 7 calls and I was only able to get 3 1/2 hour's which isn't very good and once the static problems are solved then I'll try them again for calling without the NC to see how much difference that makes and if i'm able to solve the static and battery issue's then I'll post an update.

    The addional features are worthless

    Pro: Sound quality is pretty good for music Ambient noise does play through the speaker therefore, Mic is picking up surround environment sound well. Con: Noise Canceling is just a gimmick, can't tell the difference if it is on or off. Using the App Headphone connect can't create custom Equalizers. Phone call quality is poor. The listener hears what I say but they say it sounds as if I got a frog in my throat. When turning my head so see the left or right side of me it puts a strain on ears, as if the cable is not long enough so will have to constantly adjust the earbuds to they don't pop out of ear. Conclusion: For what this device delivers, it is overpriced. You can find other earbuds that cost half the price but deliver the same music quality and better call quality. The mic is bizarre, for ambient sound it works well however for phone calls it is disappointing. I used it over 15 calls and the listeners always complains, they can't hear me or my voice sounds distorted. It doesn't matter if I use Voice over IP or regular phone call. Bottom line the extra features which are virtually non-existing adds to the higher price. You can get the same type of earbuds from Sony without the gimmicks and it is $70 cheaper.

    I love these in ear BT buds. They are wonderful for my workouts or just walking in the park. They stay put with aggressive activity and movement. NC works very well and the clarity (music mostly) is terrific. Excellent sound quality for the price especially. I have older very high end Bose on ear NC wired phones for the airplane. These are perfect for my everyday activities and easy to pair.

    I have a very good set of over the ear noise canceling headphones but I travel a lot so I wanted something less bulky when on a plane and in the travel gear. I looked at several different models and settled on trying the SP600-Ns. I am as pleased with these as I am with the over the ear Sony headphones I have. Great sound for music and equal or better noise canceling. Bluetooth has been flawless. I use them for phone calls as well and they work well. One downside is that battery charge life is much less (about 2.5 hours) but I guess its a smaller battery.

    Sony's new SP600N headphones are a total surprise in this line of earbud-based headphones. They are incredibly comfortable in the ear, they are easy to control, they include an active noise cancellation feature, and the sound (especially the bass) is fantastic. It is a little curious that the control feature for this set is located behind the left ear for a change - the control module looked a little oddly designed but I found it to be the easiest layout for control of any wireless headphone set I have ever used - it's sufficiently intuitive so your fingers just seem to know how to operate things - there is no learning curve. The individual earpieces fit very naturally in my ears (and of course there are different sized interchangeable tips for people with different sized ears) - and even though they didn't feel intrusive or unnatural, neither did they ever feel like there were threatening to fall out during exercise. The active noise cancellation features works OK but don't expect the performance to rival that of over-the-ear headphones (whose padding goes a long way to isolate you from environmental disturbances). But ultimately, I think it's the sound that separates these headphones from others of similar design - music sounds full and clear and natural - the bass response was pretty surprising. In general, it's just hard to find satisfying bluetooth earbuds that approximate the sound you can get with some better quality wired earbuds - but I think these are doing a fine job.

    Poor Call Quality, Ear Buds Uncomfortably Large

    Posted
    Jessa
    • My Best Buy® Member

    The sound quality for music and videos is exceptional, as to be expected from Sony headphones. The call quality is extremely poor, with a lot of static and often times being told by people listening to me that I sounded like I was talking through a tin can. That wasn't even my largest issue with the headphones however since I would primarily be using them for video/music. No, the biggest issue I had was how UNCOMFORTABLE they are. Even the smallest provided ear buds were far too large for my ears, barely even fitting enough to stay secure and extremely painful to wear for more than a few moments. I know I normally have issues with sizing on ear buds and always have to go with the smallest but these were nowhere near the right fit, which is just absurd. I don't have abnormally small ears or anything. All in all, they were completely unusable for me so I returned them after two days.

    I got these on a replacement plan because my previous Razer Hammerhead BTs broke. I was excited at first to use Sony and then was disappointed later when I used them. Returned them a day later and the reasons are listed below. I used to DJ so I have a lot of experience with headphones sound quality and features so please use this review to your advantage. Pros- Decent sound & good bass and seemed to have a long range connectivity wise. Cons- Noise cancelling feature and ambient noise is garbage. You hear echo and background noise is amplified on every phone call making it annoying to talk on the phone. I tried cycling through all the settings and its still horrible doesn't even make sense why they do that but terrible for phone use. @@@@@@@@ Granted my work environment is loud) this makes it even worse to try and talk hearing yourself and everything around you amplified even when in off position. Even when you are not listening to music or on a call and they sit in your ear you can hear a low echo or hiss at all times. - No track >> / << or skip option. I mean its headphones for music so the fact that you cant change or cycle through music is stupid IMO especially from a company that's known for music. TERRIBLE even $10 ones can do that. - The cord is left side heavy with controls so you feel the cord tighten on your neck as it always seems to drag to the left side riding up the right side of your neck always having to adjust them adjusting them. After having previous wired Sony headphones in the past and coming back to Sony years later for wireless I must say that I will never buy another Sony Headphone product. I was skeptical on getting these cause even older pairs were always just ok. Very disappointed. I will go without headphones for a few days until they restock the Razer Hammerhead BT. Hands down best headphones for music and functionality, comfort and overall features and attention to detail.

    Noise cancelling sport earphones

    The Sony SP-600N Noise cancelling headphones are a great pair of wireless sports headphones that fit well and are extremely lightweight. Being in ear headphones the noise cancellation can be hit or miss on quality depending on the surrounding ambient noise. But with that being said these really are a very good pair of sports wireless Bluetooth headphones. They are incredibly lightweight and once seated properly in your ears are nearly impossible to come out on their own. The sound quality is top notch with just enough bass to give the music some real feeling. The inline controls are simple to use and pretty much expected nowadays on any Bluetooth headphones. There are several different sized ear plugs and 2 different sizes designed to keep the headphones in your ear. Overall enough sizes for practically anyone with enough mixing and matching to fit your ears.
