    The headphones were very comfortable and the sound was great, however I wasn't a big fan of having to use an app for volume control.

    Bass is loud, if you're into that with bass boost.

    My new Sony Noise Cancelling headphones are easy to use and very convenient. My wife loves it know she doesn't have to leave the room because the TV is so loud.

    I was wanting to use them on the mower. The volume was not very nor were they noise blocking.

    Great bass on these headphones with pretty good battery life, bag to store them is also pretty nice and headphones sound great and clear. Only thing I don't like is everyone else within 5 feet from you can hear your music with these at half volume or higher unless you are in a noisy environment.

    Good sound and noise canceling, one volume issue

    I bought these a while back and am overall happy with them. Pros: - sound quality (for noise canceling) - battery life, I don't ever worry about them being charged, just plug them in once a in a while. - bass sounds good without being too powerful Cons: - on the volume, there isn't enough granularity. There is a volume that is too weak, and the next step up is slightly too loud with no way to adjust somewhere between. - app that comes with it seems a little weak. So, overall I'm happy enough (so I marked 4 stars) with these but I don't think I could recommend them because of the volume issue.

    The noise sound canceling of these is amazing. I had the volume on my phone at 20% and still couldn't hear someone talking to me from 3 feet away.

    These sound great, get very loud and have great bass. Noise cancelation is not as good and actually made me feel sick for a while but other than that I like these

    I already had the 9501B headphones for the garage for 2 years and I love them. Over Christmas I got these for $120 on sale. I work from home and use these to talk with my team via Skype and they noticed no difference when I transitioned to the 9501N from my wired on ear headphones I'd been using for the last 4 years. The home furnace is in the basement and can get quite loud along with the space heater. Quen I turned on the mouse cancelling I could still hear the furnace however when I turned them off it was substantially louder. That's when I realized how well they actually work. Connecting to my phone and my computer via bluetooth was pretty simple as well. Not sure I'd pay full price for any headphones but 120 was a bargain.

    My first set of Bluetooth headphones and find them easy to set up and use. Only confusion occurred when adjusting volume, however geek squad provided great explanation.

    These headphones sound terrible. The volume is limited and the sound coming out of them when connected to bluetooth sounds compressed. Not worth the price.

    Use Sony headphones while operating loud equipment. They do great job of blocking the noise while delivering excellent digital audio music. I'd refer these to anyone.

    I've had these for several months now and I love them! Great sound. Great quality. The only knock is the volume controllers could be a bit easier to use, but that's nit-picking.

    I am currently studying for the bar exam. While living in an apartment. With very loud neighbors. These are a life-saver.

    Not as good as the a Bose or Beats but works fine. One of the take aways is that the noice cancellation function doesn't block out some of the lowest noise at a low volume. At higher volumes it works better but someone might not want high volumes at all times. Bass is great with the boost function but seems to muffle the highs and mids again unless you are at a higher volume.

    I've been looking for a pair of headphones and I somehow ended up to these and I love them. The bass is soo crazy in these and the noise canceling works pretty well on these too! I went on a plane and had these on with music on half volume and I really could only hear a tiny bit of engine noise from the plane, but then I turned it to max volume which was pretty loud with the bass boost on and I couldn't hear a single thing except the music! @@@@@@@@ The plane was a Airbus A321 @@@@@@@

    Best bass headphones from BestBuy

    Out of the over the ear headphones available at best buy, I think these are the best ones. They are better than the beats, skullcandy, JBL, bose, etc, etc. My only complaint about them is that they do not get loud enough for me, but none of the headphones that I tried did. That being said, I think they are a little over priced which all of these headphones are.

    This purchase was a replacement for my wife after her previous pair finally went out. She is extremely happy with these. The bass is so loud the headphones will vibrate while you are wearing them. The only thing that would make these better is the ability to lower the play the music softly while holding a conversation, like my nephew's plantronics.
