Amazing sound, Lacks comfort
I'm always purchasing headphones, I'm always looking for the perfect bass and sound in them. I've tried beats, monster, skull candy, and another other brand that claims to have good headphones.
I saw that these were on sale and thought it was a great buy, I went to my local electronics store because they had them to try them out and I was surprised by how good and clear they sounded, on top of that the bass was perfect.
I got home and made the order, they came in and they sounded even better just because they belonged to me.
After about on hour I had to take them off because the top of my ear started to hurt. They became rather uncomfortable so I had to rest my ears.
After a few days I noticed that they got scratched, these headphones scratch very easily and that's a real bummer.
Also if you use these headphones while you lay down in bed they do tend to slip, they are hard to keep on.
Overall the quality is amazing I would give it a 5 based on that only, but the easy scratching and comfort of them made me give it 4 stars.

I love the audio, and it's really comfortable, but it slides off my head way too easily.

Excellent Quality Headphones
I had a chance to listen to these headphones at the Sony store. I compared them with the older "X" series headphones they replaced, and the difference was very noticeable. They produce a higher quality sound than the older model and have a slimmer profile when worn on your head. The quality of the foam in the earpieces is excellent, and the flat wiring was a welcome addition. I prefer these over the more expensive Beats Audio headphones, and the fact that the Sony headphones are available in several high quality, attractive colors and finishes is icing on the cake. A great investment!

Great Sound Horrible Confortability
I have owned these headphones for 3 months (bought from best buy) so it is time for a review. I have been purchasing Sony headphones for over 9 years now and these have got to be the greatest disappointment. These headphones have an awesome sound (i listen to dubstep, trap, edm), but you can't wear them for over an 50min without your ears hurting. The cushion is so thin that you ear is practically sitting on plastic. Also what is up with the headband adjustment, did they create these headphones for giant trolls? I have to have the headband at the second to smallest setting in order to fit on my head right, and there is about 10 more notches on the headphones above that. They also fall off way too easy, drop your pencil on the ground and bend over to pick it up, they will fall off. Never will I buy a pair of on the ear headphones from Sony again.
