    Sony, What?

    Posted
    thelqh

    Sony is known for their amazing sound, great design and overall market dominance in so many areas (TV, sound systems, headphones, etc.), but with this, I'm really questioning why things are the way they are. Sound: These headphones sound fine. I mean, I enjoy a lot of bass and the EQ settings in the app make that great. Everything is clear and with the sound isolation from the earbuds and "noise cancelling", if you could even call it that, they're great for a lot. Design: What in the heck is this design? The earbuds are MASSIVE and look really bulky. I really like the material, but they are extremely heavy and just hard to get around. They also didn't include a carrying case or smaller fins (in my packaging they didn't even include the large ones). This is a major misstep for Sony at this price point where earbuds that are less expensive have these options. The controller is HUGE. Everything about this design seems like it was made way too big. It's positioned over your left shoulder so it's always bogging that side down, leading to some sealing issues with the left ear bud and constant falling over. It is way too big for what it needs to do, and honestly, Sony needs to implement USB-C. Comfort/Fit: These HURT. None of the included eartips fit my ear and the fins hurt really bad after a while. I wish they followed JayBird's example and included some foam ear tips or at least some better wings. If they don't have the wings, they're falling out and if they do, they're just plain uncomfortable. For $150, These are way too poorly designed for me to enjoy wearing them. The charging cable is poor quality, the sound cuts out sometimes when the phone is switching between apps, and the final point: Sound Cancellation/Ambient Noise: Okay, the Ambient Noise feature is great. I can hear myself talking and it doesn't sound like I'm underwater when I'm on the phone. Phone calls have been fine so far and the other party can hear me just fine. However, when we switch to noise cancellation, it honestly sounds exactly the same as when you have just the earbuds in your ear -- there's no noticeable difference like when you're wearing other active noise cancelling headphones. Overall: So many design flaws for an otherwise decent product make this a 1/5 for me. I can't stand companies with massive design teams and budgets making these kinds of mistakes. Connectivity issues, uncomfortable fit, and awkward and bulky design on SPORT headphones should not be a thing. I'd say ditch the NFC (unnecessary) and keep everything else with a slimmer profile and you might have yourself a better product.

    Poor Call Quality, Ear Buds Uncomfortably Large

    Posted

    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.

    Sony Missed The Mark

    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.

    Great Sound Quality, Terrible Battery Life

    Sound quality is really great. I love how there is an app to adjust the sound based on what your listening too. However, that’s about it positively. The earbuds themselves don’t seem to fit right, the mic is not good when I make calls, and most importantly, the battery life is awful. I can charge the earphones quickly but it lasts pretty much the same amount of time as when I charge them. When I workout or I’m on my lunch break, they always seem to die on me even though I charge them beforehand. I wouldn’t recommend these. I’m exchanging them for Bose earphones.

    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 am using the smallest adaptors hurts the insides of my ears so I'm constantly having to adjust them. I am returning them.

    Good Sound, Noise Canceling ok

    Noise Canceling just doesn't do it. I have been a Sony fan for years and in years past used their in ear noise canceling system exclusively. So I thought I would try their new pair. The canceling system just does not cut it. While walking around streets of Italy I cannot hear any meaningful cancellation of street noise. Sony, what happened? 10 years ago I swore by your systems. Disappointed fan.

    I got these earphones on a whim . I liked the color and usually Sony has good products. These earphones are TRASH. They say they last for 6 hours, that is a lie. 2 -3 hours MAX. They are also bad for talking on the phone. No one can hear me and they think i am under water. DO NOT BUY!!!

    Your average set of headphones with a twist. I wasn’t too impressed with these headphones the sound and style is very basic. I didn’t like that I have to download an app to control the sound quality of the headphones. The earbuds for me where to big. It can be a spare set of headphones, not a daily use

    These were a gift for my husband. I’ve been on the phone with him while he’s used these and the sound quality is horrible. He sounds extremely distant and the noise canceling feature is nonexistent. I could hear everything he was doing and nothing he said.

    Noise cancellation is false advertisement

    The only reason I gave these earbuds two stars is I thought the sound quality was decent for the price range. Sony claims they are noise cancelling but I’m not noticing it. I’m also finding they don’t stay in my ears when I’m exercising or working in the yard.

    The sound is weird. I dislike these just have not had time to return as of yet! For the cost, the sound quality is not good. The sound is as if you can hear yourself talk and every movement is heard which is aggravating. Battery life is good.

    Would have given it a higher rating but due to low battery issues, it gets a 2 star. The battery holds a charge for about a 1. If listening to music, it is a hit an miss. Not at all happy. Will keep it at home to take calls only.

    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.

    Perhaps I expect too much, but these have mediocre sound (at best). I bought for noise canceling and that is a joke on this device. Save your money for a better quality brand. Wish I had.

    I feel as though the earbuds were oddly uncomfortable. The left side felt too heavy as though it was going to fall out while I was running. I would say the sound quality is good but definitely not the best.

    I really love the sound of the BASS on these and I loved the color, but the wires are too short and I found it hard to keep the ear pieces in my ear. Exchanged for Bose wireless ..Much better Choice.

    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.

    These wireless headphones were great for sound, and its app is well designed, however, the battery life is complete trash, and tended to be uncomfortable as the day went on.
