    Great set of earphones, good quality and good sound. Only downfall is the volume control needs to be further down. It tends to pull the one side down due to the weight.

    I ride the train to work and on errands. These headphones are GREAT at eliminating background noise of chatter, people eating loudly, and even crying babies. I've also worn them for exercise (running and weightlifting) and they don't slip or get in the way. Great quality, great price!

    Excellent Sound for Ear Buds

    I would have given 4 or 5 stars except for the following; 1. Comes with 4 sizes of ear buds but just cannot find the perfect fit. 2. After downloading app and upgrading firmware, the sound was terrible and the volume and noise cancelling became inferior. If you get these, I would avoid the app.

    So like any Bluetooth headset, this is a piece of cake to setup. Start Pairing (single button), and then match on your device... done. good to go. Power is by the standard Micro-USB The AUDIO on these are loud, and clear. The noise canceling was very good. I was able to hear CLEAR music, while I was cutting the lawn (with an electric lawn mower). The downside; the volume, charge, connector portion of the device is bulky... It was dominant on my left side, and was pulling the wire that way the entire time using it. Often catching on my shirt, and pulling out one (or both) of the ears.

    I've had these for about two weeks now and I'm very underwhelmed. I couldn't wait for these light mint colored, noise cancelling earbuds but the sound quality is off. I'm a big Sony fan and have quite a bit of their products but for me these do not fit the gym earphone category. The volume control area is clunky and keeps getting in the way at the gym, the Sony application to tailor sound is weird and the jellybean shaped ear bud is just uncomfortable. They do come with different ear tips but I could still hear outside noise while at the gym with the noise cancelling on. Lastly the microphone during calls annoys everyone. It makes me sound far away and I can hear myself on the ear bud. Hopefully there's an update to fix some of the built in features.

    Not impressed for the price

    I thought I would like to have a pair of wireless headphones for use with my iPod when walking but I'm not impressed by the sound of these at all, no matter what setting I had them on they still had a very tin sound, I don't know where the extra bass was that's advertised. Also they are not completely wireless, they are connected together with a wire which hangs either around your chin or the back of your neck, there is volume, play, fast forward, rewind control on the wire but you have to take them off or memorize where the controls are because you can't see them. You need the headphones app to change settings & would be best to control the headphones with. Noise cancelling wasn't really good either because I could still hear everything going on around me. They are waterproof & charge with a usb cable, sound is pretty loud and you get about 6 hrs playback time. Can be used with iPhone, iPod or android & hands free calling, google assist. USB cable is included as well as a few different sizes of silicone ear buds to fit all sizes. Set up & connection was easy but as far as sound goes, I'll stick to my wired headphones.

    Pretty comfortable headset

    I must say the headset fit perfectly and stayed in place in my ears. The volume wasn't that high. I'm using it on a Galaxy Note 8. Also doing phone calls I got a lot of background noise making it almost impossible for the caller on the phone to hear me. Music was okay as I said it wasn't loud and Bassed up. But the sound quality was okay. I really wish they would have Incorporated noise cancelling along with the ambient sound function. To summarize not the best headset that I've ever used but it's okay if you're not a person that likes the music loud and if you're not making phone calls during your workout.

    I am very well pleased with these wireless headphones. I was torn between these and a pair from Bose. I ultimately chose these because I do enjoy the bass from my music and the Bose didn't provide as much. The ease of use, sound, and fit are all great. I've lifted weights and ran with these and never had an issue with them falling out. The battery is pretty decent and the app is also easy to use. Using these for about 90min/day I can usually get 3-5 days out of a single charge (mostly depending upon how loud I turn them up). Another great function of these is the noise canceling. While it isn't a "complete" noise canceling like you would get from the earmuff style of headphone it does do a decent job.

    Some gripes but the sound is amazing

    I had the Bose Sounds port wireless headphones and had to use the warranty. Did some research and decided on these. The sound quality and battery is on par with the Bose wireless headphones. 6hr battery is based on noise cancelation turned off. You get about 3-4 hours with them on. These are super loud and I don't have to turn it all the way up. The ear tips still come out after you sweat at the gym and can be frustrating in the middle of your set. Bose ear tips still the best and never come out. Both Bose and Sony have asymmetrical controls, heavier on one ear than the other, pulling the ear tip out. If you are sweating, the rubber cord sticks to your skin. If you turn your head, it will put the ear tip out your ear. Constantly adjusting the cord.

    Great extra bass sound signature + noise canceling

    Even though "true wireless" headphones are in the spotlight, companies are still releasing traditional wireless headphones that are connected by a wire. While not as glamarous, they typically have longer battery life and provide a more stable connection, probably due to larger antennas. The Sony WI-SP600N Wireless In-ear Sports Headphones are of that design, with the biggest feature being active digital noise cancelation in a sweat-resistant set designed to stand up to active workouts. From a design-perspective, it actually has an asymmetrical design with a largish module that dangles closer to the left side which houses a number of physical buttons plus the covered microUSB charging port. As you'd expect, multiple sizes of earbuds are included so you can hopefully get a good fit, which is essential for maximizing the sound quality. Going back to the module, all the expected buttons for play/pause and volume and power are joined by a button that toggles between active noise cancellation, ambient sound mode, and no noise cancellation. I found that the noise canceling worked well, much more like the Sony WI-1000X than the Sony WH-CH700N; I'm not sure if that if it just more effective on in-ear headphones or not. In Ambient Sound Mode, it actually uses the microphone to bring in some of the outside sounds, if that's what you're looking for. Sony has a companion mobile app "Sony Headphones Connect" that works with most of their Bluetooth headphones, these included. With the app, you can access some additional settings such as equalization settings. On both iPhone and Android, AAC is the codec I see used, which sounds pretty good. I was a little disappointed that aptX, aptX HD, and Sony's own LDAC are not supported, but AAC still sounded pretty good with tolerable latency. Battery life is reported natively in both iOS and Android, as well as audibly by tapping the power button. On phone calls, call audio goes through both earbuds which is nice, as some sets only send phone audio to one. Overall, I really enjoyed the bass response and overall sound of this headset, and the noise canceling works as expected. The IPX4 water resistance means I can enjoy great sound while working out at the gym without worrying damage caused by sweat.

    Very good sounding headphones

    The Sony SP600N Sports Wireless headphones are a solid headset that sounds great and looks great too. Fit: They fit snug in my ears and they don't feel like they want to fall out. Sony includes 4 different size ear gels and two sets of ear 'holders' that go into the crevice above your ear canal to help secure the devices. I had to play around with the different combinations until I found the right solution for me. Sound: They sound really good once you find your perfect fit. The extra bass is awesome and the treble is clear and I am very happy with the way they sound. Battery: Enough to last through just about any workout for sure and possibly a few. I only had to charge mine back up after about a 5 hour session of constant use and I am happy with that. I did have Noise Cancelling off with that time. They seem to charge back to full in just over and hour and 15 minutes. App: The Sony connect app is pretty good. It's the same app that you use for the new line of portable BT speakers that Sony has out now. You can fine tune a lot of settings in there and check battery level, Ambience, and Noise cancelling options and of course and EQ function. Device Buttons: Each ear bud only has one button that will do different functions. The left ear bud button toggles between Noise Cancellation/ Ambience sound/ OFF. The Right will Play/Pause, answer phone/ activate your phone's digital assistant, also, a double press will of the right button will skip forward and a triple press will skip back. Not the best use of the buttons IMO, I wish they would have just added more buttons. Cons: I was not able to find a way to use the ear buds to adjust the volume and skipping back and forward is not great. . I had trouble getting google assistant to do that for me using the Right ear bud button. That is my biggest gripe with these though. Also, NC didn't seem to have that much effect that I could tell. Verdict: They are pretty good for wireless headphones, they don't have the greatest battery life, but are good enough for most people. Sound is awesome and call quality is really good as well with the HD feature. NC feature is more of a gimmick on these than anything and ambient sound needs a little work also.
