I have these, and I think they're brilliant!
Great price.

Yeah. Even their top-tier BT headphones too.
For anyone interested, there's a mod to change the characteristics of the headphones to a more balanced one. Read Bill-P 's post on page 13 and 17 on this thread for instructions.

Have had mine 2 years and still going strong even though I am bass mad. I do keep them in a cheap hard case so hopefully they will last longer.
I have the MDR770's and they're incredible, so if these are the next one up then they can't be bad!
How loud do they go? I've found songs Bluetooth headphones to be very limited in volume - you do get accustomed to it , however many complaints seem to focus on volume difference versus wired headphones
How do these compare to Beats Solo2? In terms of sound and how they sit on the ear?

I have wired Solo2's and they sound great but they sit on the ears and get uncomfortable after a while, also as they sit on the ear there's a fair bit of sound leakage which isn't ideal for a work environment.

After a decent pair of wireless over the ears what sound great with not much sound leakage at a decent price, can anyone compare to the solos?

Thanks
Are they better than mdr-zx770bn?
Cheers OP.

I reserved at Leamington Spa Shire Retail Park, but decided not to buy them. I have too many sets of headphones already.


Does anyone want the reservation?
Is it one on ear or over ear?
another question I have, my amazing in ear Sony Headphones which I got with an old Xperia phone had trouble playing in a Samsung phone and the same with my iPhone 7 when using the adapter due to some of the Noise cancelling features within the headphones...

Can anybody vouch for these working with the cable which is supplied on an iPhone 7 using the adapter? I have just reserved but won't collect if they don't work well, the issue I had was the sound only came out of one ear and sounded like it was in the distance

thanks
Does this have a microphone?

I don't see it mentioned anywhere on the page.

Yes, it does.

that headband though. + electro bass booster? c'mon now.
Can anyone comment on noise leaking? I need a new pair for office use after my MDR ZX600 (loved them) broke.

The MDR ZX600 leaked pretty much nothing so hoping these would be on par
Great offer for Bluetooth bought my son the wired pair for Xmas very good quality
Muddy junk.
Good price... I originally started looking at these earlier in the yeah but ultimately having looked at reviews decided to push the boat out and by the more expensive MDR1000's..... they are fantastic headphones and I'm sure these are very good too.
Terrible build quality. The little swivel hinge that connects the ear cups is plastic and very delicate. I had a pair and they snapped. Sound great though!

I bought them while on a trip in the States (and it was black Friday!) and I really love them, I don't see any downside yet. I'm wondering, what's the difference between the old and new model?

A quick search on internet the only difference between these two is with the newer version you can adjust the bass level.
Really good headphones. Bought them for £60 last year off amazon. Two issues: 1.) These are BIG! If you've got a round head, prepare to look stupid with these on; 2.) The bit of plastic that couples the ear piece on to the headband is prone to failure. Within 4 months of ownership I could see fatigue marks . 1 month later, I take them off and drop them on my duvet and off swings the ear cup, dangling by a wire. I've been using them since then with gorilla glue. Seems to have done the trick.

Nothing wrong with the sound quality. Truly exceptional for bass heavy music. I don't use the bass boost button as that's a crazy amount of bass
