Awesome headphones. Great price. Shame about the size.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Fashion Over-Ear Headphones for iPod, iPhone, MP3 and Smartphone - Red (Electronics)
I bought these headphones as an alternative to Beats by Dre Studio headphones, which are ridiculously expensive. The Sony headphones were recommended to me by a friend, who said the sound was equal to Beats but the price was a lot lower.
Well, until I buy some Beats I can't compare the two. My first impression upon using these was that the sound seemed a bit more "tinny" and not as much bass as my old headphones (Skullcandy Hesh). However, this has since improved a bit possibly due to adjusting exactly how they are positioned on my ears. I think it depends on exactly where and how close to your ears the headphones are. My old headphones completely covered my ears, so there was absolutely no interference from other sounds around me. These only sit on top of my ears, which is a let-down. Also, I find the whole thing tends to slide down my head when I look down slightly, unless I've got the headband tightened enough (but then you risk the actual earpieces being further away from your ears!).
Don't get me wrong, they're great headphones and the actual sound-quality seems a lot better and clearer than my old headphones (there seems to be more of a surround effect sometimes, which is very cool!). However, when I can afford it I will still try and get some Beats Studio headphones as I think they'll be better-suited to my needs.
