There are some absolutely shocking reviews for these headphones on Amazon.
Multiple pictures of broken swivels and lots of complaints about poor build quality.
I've reserved a pair but I'm on the fence right now after reading the reviews.

I had these (in black) 2 years ago for a while, no issues of any sort scott, not sure if there is a certain "mishandling" of various sony headphones on the inta'webs, as again, I have 950's, MK2's and MK3's all with no issues of any kind and the MK3's & 950's are used, along with some lower end Sony's, as in £5 versions of these buy wired.. and nothing has broken! Just ordered some new WF-1000XM3 from @Mrswitch deal last week, for silly money compared to the £220 they are on pre-order for on Amazon and Sony, so looking forward to more of the same quality!

Now that is definitely a good buy I mean for that price it’s worth a try you never know but I refuse to use that site it’s to much off a fart on for me competition means more deals getting put out so keep it up
i have the blue ones the base is ridiculous and you can't turn it down you can alter it using dsp in your player app but still very bassy

Ear cups are quite small too if you have big ears then they sit awkward on your ears

NFC is the initial connection/setup process or handshake between devices these are bluetooth and you can just use NFC to pair them by bluetooth instead of searching to add

These are amazing, but!! swivels do broke. I have them for two years and broken twice (swivels) And its light use at home- not running, jumping etc. My wife had a brilliant idea to glue it with nail gel- holds like a charm that’s why I still use them. Battery time is brilliant- nearly those 30 hours. Minus- doesn’t work while charging...still love them though..
Good price. I’d of gone for these if I hadn’t just bought some beats solo 3. Have the Sony ch500, the sound is good but the build quality is shocking. Feels like the wound fall to pieces with a good shake.
I’ve got these. The battery life and the Bluetooth connectivity speed are amazing. However can confirm that they are a little brittle. I think I stood on mine in the dark and broke them. If you look after them and don’t stand on them(!) they are probably fine. Good sound too.

I picked up a pair of the WF1000XM3 - they’re absolutely stunning. The noise cancelling isn’t quite as good as my WH1000XM3s (but I would never expect them to be for the size), but better than my Mk1 or Mk2s. Enjoy!
I used to have these in blue. They look and sound good.

Is there much difference between this model? johnlewis.com/son…681
This or a similarly priced AKG y50bt?
I own the XB950AP version of these. Yes mine are wired and larger (they enclose the ear rather than sit on the ear) but the sound is fantastic. So good I brought a second pair for when these break, incase they stop making them. That said, no issue with build quality at all. I cant see why these xb650 build quality would be any less. Wireless XB950 also reduced at Argos, down to £67.99 from £89.99. XB950 has fantastic bass. (I assume the XB650 too) With the right music, the right settings on the source, these can make my eye balls vibrate without any discomfort or headache from harsh bass. Highly recommend.

I've been waiting for the ch500 to drop to below £25 ish as that's my buying price for them. The ones in this deal are far superior from what little I know, think better battery life and overall build and feel. Sound quality will probably be a personal preference. I've reserved these but on the fence on whether to buy or not.

Thank you. I just need to return the Sony headphones back to argos. They're aren't compatible with the ps4 or switch.
At least with the skullcandy headphones, I could plug them in directly with the backup aux cable.
