I d hold out for v2 of this

Excellent headphones that sound amazing, BUT with a design flaw that allows cracks to form around the hinges near the earcups.

Wait for the Outlet store clearance again. Usually £180~ though the V2 models may see them reduce further.

so the design flaw will make this £257 headphone useless in a short time so why does anyone vote this hot?!!

New ones sound great but leak 50% of the sound.

Double no!


Double negatives make a positive- lost your case

Better to buy the new model instead. WH 1000X M2.

I got them this week, from Bax. £286 delivered

I bought "refurbished" version of these from Sony centres direct Enfield online. And they arrived with 2 cracks on the hinges. And now I'm having a hard time arranging a refund from these clowns.

I got like new from Amazon for £220 and I love these, really comfortable and using the ldac is great with my Sony xzp. Heat added.

I have these, I have not developed any cracks. is it only if you handle them poorly that the cracks will appear

Is there an official recall on these by Sony or is it a case by case basis for replacements?

Mine pair are fine.
But, I've experienced plastic cracking and breaking on cheaper none Sony branded earbuds in the past.
I put the earbuds to one side and didn't touch them for about 5 months. When I picked them up one earpiece just fell apart, with the plastic casing breaking apart.
It's like the plastic is made out of degrading plastic bags from the supermarket.

Mine get 3 hours or more use a day, every day, and no cracks over the 12 months I've owned them.

Very good price. I thought v2 was just a change to BT 5.0 ?

Had mine a year, no problems, fantastic headphones

That's nonsense. I handled mine very carefully and still they broke. Sony have admitted that the problem was caused at their end, i.e. design/manufacturing fault but the issue was limited to serial numbers in the range: 5000001-5256984. If you have proof of purchase you should be able to get Sony to fix them

Can you explain what you mean by Sony fixing them?
Do you mean, sending your headphones to them, so the part that can break is replaced?
Or, after sending your headphones to them, they give you either a refurbished pair or a new pair of the MDR-1000x?
Or they replace the "old" design with the "new" design headphones?

I have the new model. They didn't upgrade the BT to 5, but it is made of different materials in many areas. Partly to address the cracking on v1 I guess. The sound noise cancelling is improved, although the v1 was already v good.

They were at the lower price for a few days. Someone posted a deal on here. I watched them and ordered when they were reduced again to £286 momentarily.

They are now £330. bax-shop.co.uk/wir…nes


But at least they are in stock, unlike Amazon. I received them 3 days after ordering.


They are wonderful headphones, and far better (feature, build and sound) than the Bose I had, which I sold 2 months ago.

I went for one, received this evening.

Don't forget amazon is selling them with 3 years breakdown cover (that sealed it for me)

Agree. Have had at least a dozen different headphones and for noise cancellers, these are the best to date and superior to QC3 which I have experience of. Can't say for all Bose.
