Rated 3 out of 5 by Pach Mid to Higher tone sound
The style is great, but you just don't get any lower tones in the music.
If you listen to a lot of hip-hop, electronica or dance you will be disappointed.
These are not exactly a cheap pair of bluetooth headphones, but they are not what I expected from Sony.
They are comfortable and we'll made and have a good range, but just not good with low tone sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deba Super awesome amazing headphones! Best I've ever
This is one of the best headphone I've ever had.
Sound quality is excellent thru the entire audio spectrum and battery life is very very good. There are integrated audio controls on the headphones, so you can control your music while leaving your phone (or other device) in your pocket, on the couch or whatever. They look great and fit me. Bluetooth is awesome, it works great almost 20 - 25ft.
Another great product from Sony. Best headphones I've ever heard.

I have purchased several headphones from Sony in the past year and I have to say that these are by far the most impressive and provide everything that I need for everyday use on my devices.
> The 40mm drivers deliver rich bass and excellent clarity. From dubstep to orchestral, the sound quality that you get is consistent and full. I enjoy hearing the subtle nuances that you can't hear from the competition. I've tried Beats and Bose and only the Bose come close, but not for the price.
> The mic. I use these headphones on my MacBook Pro (Skype) with customer and stakeholders. They tell me that I sound much clearer than my lan phone and other headphones that I have used. The mic delivers and I no longer echo like when using stock/entry level headphones with a mic option.
> The Bluetooth/NFC. Pairing is a breeze! Connected to my MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod, PS3, PS4 and Nexus phone in less than 10 seconds. These have yet to drop connection or fade in and out like some bluetooth devices can. It works up to and if there are no obstructions beyond the 30ft to about 40ft.
> Comfort. Most headphones cover to much or not enough, but these are the Goldielocks. I have worn these for up to 8 hours with no issues, weighty feeling on my neck or that tightness on the head.
My only improvements would be
> To have these fold up like the MDR-X10's to easily port around
> Have a nice travel bag that would close and lock. I went to the hobby shop and got some velcro to make the bag seal, which is a workable solution.
I love my other Sony headphones (MDR-X10, Playstation Pulse Elites) and these headphones deliver the same quality as they share the same technologies. However, these give me the freedom to move without the need for wires or an adapter.

by privater Great Product and Value with some cons
I bought this headphone because it's Sony's first bluetooth headphone which support apt-X, after hours of play, it almost got everything right, but apt-X. After 3+ hours of search I finally nailed it, but I'm afraid most of the people who bought this might never use apt-X in the first place.
long words short:
check here to turn on High Quality mode:
The default mode is use inferior SBC codec, you have to turn on the headphone with Power + Volume + to boost it to High Quality mode then get apt-X support. Then turn on your Macbook to enjoy the apt-X support best audio quality.
The worst part is Sony didn't have any info of this in their product manual or setup notice, it's a completely shame you have to search online to find there vital mode changes.
