    Amazing kids with awesome sound - Lifts music to new heights. Good NC, of course doesn't shut out all the sound, but definitely enough enough to still impress - Mutes traffic noise considerably, perfect when you're out and about. * Comfortable comfort, sits well without pushing somewhere, even when wearing glasses. * Smooth touch on right cover * Good building quality The only thing I experience on the negative side is that the handsets are a little big, not in fit, but they look a little clumsy. But it is probably a matter of taste. One thing is for sure, will always buy kids with NC from now on!

      Some words about what could be better: -NC at sedentary place where I want to remove the hum / buzz / noise from the fan system is super-irritating. When you start the handsets, they take away the noise, but after 10 seconds the noise is raised again! Then it changes up to down a little then-and-then. -Touch works well, right up to me on the couch wants to throw up the right arm behind the head ... -In and disconnection of 3.5mm closes the handset. Irberirritetende then Bluetooth to the bitch does not lip leak so I need to use cord. -Power button flush with the rest of the case. No, it's not easy to find. - The op is not in sync with the ambient mode, but it is well a minorage. But before version five, should anyone on Sony see it? - "Giant" with cool sound processor that can mimic different environments. Is it just me who would appreciate an EQ where you can adjust right and left channel separately? -Blinking blue when connected. Why can't you choose it?

        Bigger than expected, unfortunately. Sounds ok without shining. Ideal with buttons on the left and touch on the right. + Good stable signal + NC works as expected, even if the handset isolates a part without NC. + Good positioning of controls (except on / off which is a bit difficult to find with your finger) + Ok sound, but worse than my older Fidelio M1BT. Better after recording? - Big, and can get bumpy to fit in a small bag - Will probably be quite hot in the summer. - Incredibly sensitive to wind, not standard filters in the hands of this, but referred to the app. Edit: Ang app so you can remove wind noise with success. Though I guess what happens is that it shuts off the buckets, simply. Good thing, but it should have been directly on the hands instead. Strange also that you have to prioritize sound quality to use some stuff in the app, though it doesn't really matter to me.

          How have I been able to live without these ?? For a couple of years I have been eager to buy a pair of bose qc, precisely because I belong to the category of people who are disturbed and stressed incredibly much by noise in the surroundings. What prevented me from buying a pair of bose, however, was the fact that they cost more than a used car - not an alternative when you are a poor student to put a third of their monthly income on a pair of headphones. When this model from sony sailed up as a suitable candidate, with good reviews and at least "acceptable" price, the temptation was too great to resist. Was there a small light in the tunnel for all of us who have the sense and respect enough to take their embarrassing, loud and private conversations separated, instead of in public transport? One can only hope .. I got the chance to find out during a trip from southern to northern sweden that included both outdoor environment, bike, train, bus and air. Out: I experienced that NC was very effective in removing traffic noise! You hear cars nearby and the tire friction sounds against the asphalt, but the sound is subdued, flat and quiet. Pretty light. Bicycle: I share the view that NC mode amplifies the wind noise. There is also a mode for attenuating wind noise, but it cannot be accessed without using the sonys app. Unfortunately, I did not install the app at the time of the bike tour so I do not know how effective the function is. *** UPDATE AFTER 8 MONTHS USE ***: The wind reduction is really good! It is more or less mandatory to use it as soon as you are outdoors. It makes a huge difference. Train: My go-to place is always to choose quiet department, but unfortunately the train's AC had been running so it was unbearably hot to sit there. In other words, I had no choice but to settle down among the high-babbling barbarians. Fortunately, I had the headphones ready! My first reaction was WOW! All low-frequency sounds from the train were completely blocked. It was like sitting on your own sound-insulated island. Almost eerie - and absolutely wonderful! A while later, however, paradise was destroyed as it stepped on two very talkative women and I became involuntarily a listener to their utterly uninteresting and loud conversation. I was seriously thinking about going back to the sauna in the wagon with quiet department. There I had become sweaty, but it had been silent. Worth it ..? So the sound of calls and voices is not blocked very well (which apparently applies to all manufacturers and models, not just this). But I got rid of 99% of the sound from the train. Flight and bus: Same experience as on the train. Really good! I read some user who wrote that the kids blocked noise from screaming kids on a flight, but you should bring an excavator salt. All of us who think that there should be a 12-year limit on restaurants and aircraft know that sound from screaming children absolutely does not belong to the lower frequencies of the sound spectrum. Other reflections: Just like other users, I see no direct joke with the ambient mode. Will probably never use it. Nor have I tried the handsets with mobile calls and the built-in microphone. If there is anything I avoid more than people who use snapchat filters in dating apps then it is actually talking on the phone. Music: How is the sound of music then? As an DJ, I have a lot of experience in audio editing in various programs. I wouldn't call myself a Hi-Fi expert or total audio file companion, but I'm definitely very picky when it comes to sound quality. I have probably owned at least 20 different headphones in the last 5-10 years. Sony's kids deliver surprisingly good. Out of the box does not reach up to my Sennheiser HD25 studio watches or a pair of AKG 518, but the sound is definitely acceptable, quite good indeed. What one should DEFINITELY be to do is use the Sony app, because there you can set the equalizer to fix the sound according to its preference. With a bit of trixing, I could set the sound just as I want it - pork, rap, heavy and light bass with a little extra push on some of the higher frequencies. After I set up the equalizer that I wanted it, I could say that the lads were spewing both my HD25 studio watches and AKG 518 - according to my taste. But, as I said, it is quite individual how you want the sound. If you, like me, prefer really good bass with a lot of dimension, separation and light, then just to congratulate sonys can really deliver it. Negative: One thing that was pretty annoying was that the headphones shut off after 5 minutes if they were not connected to the Bluetooth bluetooth or connected to the 3.5mm headphone jack. It should be sony definitely thought of - bose, for example, has a function that you can set auto-off to never occur. I also strongly preferred physical buttons instead of sweeping movements with the fingers on the cover. Summary: The quality feels good, they are pretty heavy - which is a positive sign when it comes to electronics as high quality and more expensive materials perform better and weigh more. I do not think there is any reason whatsoever to choose a more expensive model than this, for two reasons: 1. I am very skeptical that they could have better sound at music (have not tried any more expensive, but that's just what I believe after having owned so many other lurks). 2. The noise reduction is great, and the tiny minimal difference that may be present in a SEK 3500 is simply not worth the money, especially not because speech and voices are not particularly well blocked by any manufacturer. We can only hope that any manufacturer succeeds in blocking talk and speech as well, I would quite honestly be prepared to fork out 50,000 SEK for it. I give 9 points out of 10! For full pot I would have liked to see physical buttons, and to be able to remove the auto-off function. *** UPDATE AFTER 8 MONTHS USE ***: My first impressions have only been enhanced. I have used them daily. Cycle with them at -25 degrees regularly for over 30 min. Have them at the gym. They NEVER have fussed, shut down, lost the sound, etc. Still feels like new - definitely worth a purchase. Battery life is also surprisingly long.

            Have now used these for about six months. Come earlier from a couple of Marshall Major 2 which will also be what I compare to. Overall, I am happy with the headphones but there are some minor things I bother about which I list below. For those who have no major concerns with this, it is a really good buy for that price. However, I ordered a black model but, according to me, got a gray one (Webbhallen did not agree with me) They look like the first picture above which in my world is gray :) Pros: + Very pleased with the sound! + Sits well in standing / sitting position (more on the latter) + The battery lasts a long time for my use + Very good noise reduction Cons: - Delicious relatively much sound to what I am used to. My desk neighbor at work can guess which song I listen to at "normal" music volume - The weight. As I wrote on Pros, these are very nice on their heads, but if I lie down, they have a tendency to go off their heads. Have been annoying many times, for example at the gym - A little too big for my taste. If I pull over the hood on the jacket during rain, anything can happen, eg raise the volume to the max or just start and pause the music - The buttons, which, after all, are very anonymous, and I find it hard to feel when they actually sit. With gloves on it is almost run, may still take them off just to start them ... - I get no indication that the battery is running low. There is only one voice that thanks itself when it is already run. Would like to get type 30 minutes in advance. - A lot of wind noise. Does not require much wind because the noise from the wind that wines pass by surpassed the music. Turning off / on ambient sound makes no difference. A little too much wind catch simply.
