Pros: Ok sound for the price, easily portable with a case
Cons: Comfort, needs an amp to sound good, very plasticy
As my first review, bear with me. My previous headphone experience only includes earbuds that came with any smartphone I purchased and Bose Tri-port headphones.
These are my first Sony headphones and I knew right away that these were going to need an amp to sound good at all, which is true but they are definitely lacking bass. I wore these on an airplane thinking with the amp they would be fine, I heard more airplane nose than anything. The isolation on these is terrible, and turning up the volume in any sort of noisy environment only brings out the highs and hurts your ears.
At home or in the office with no other noise around you, they're completely fine, but this is where the comfort factor comes in to play. After a session of listening to them the pads really start to flatten down, which gets to be very uncomfortable. For short, quick listening sessions those these will work fine with an amp.
For the price, they're not bad, but considering the comfort factor and the need for an amp, I wouldn't buy these again.
