Let me start this review by saying that I'm always on the hunt for a better surround experience from a pair of headphones. In the past I've had some gaming headphones with multiple drivers in each ear cup that didn't really work (but had great bass). I was intrigued when Sony announced these and couldn't wait to get my hands on them without having to import them from Japan.

I ordered some from Amazon as soon as they had stock and stock is quite erratic at the moment (early May 2014). On opening the box I was struck by how tightly packed they were in the box, considering the headphones are quite large and there is also a processor in there as well it's a bit of a squeeze, something that should be noted if you need to re-pack them.

Without waiting (as usual) I powered on the headphones and I was happy to see there was at least some charge in the battery (mid-level as reported on the processor OSD).

I wired it up to an old Samsung Blu-Ray player and TV via a single HDMI cable into input 1 on the box with no changes on the processor and by just placing the headphones on my head things sprung to life immediately. There is a sensor in the right ear cup that switches on the processor unit when you place the headphones over your ears. Something was wrong, I had no sound at all, first mistake, the volume control on the right ear cup was down at zero!

I watched the opening sequence of Star Trek - Intro Darkness, my first impressions were...well mixed.

First of all the good points

Impressive bass - not the earth shattering, chest cavity vibrating sort but impressive for a set of headphones and this was without any tweaking of the LFE level on the box.

If any home cinema enthusiast is really honest with themselves then they will agree that the only individuals out there that can truly enjoy a fully blown bone shaking home cinema system are those that live in detached houses where the closest neighbour is about a mile from them.
It is absolutely impossible to use a home cinema system properly without upsetting the person on the other side of a common wall in a semi-detached or terraced dwelling. Anybody who thinks otherwise, is deluding themselves.
In fact, your subwoofer alone in most cases will sound louder in your adjoining neighbour's house than in your own cinema room where it is situated.
Sadly there is no solution to the noise problem unless you are very wealthy and can afford a house out on a plot in the middle of nowhere. Your only alternative comes in the form of Sony's MDR-HW700DS surround sound headphones. This is the closest you will get to 'the real thing' and I must say, it's pretty impressive.
I live in a room in a terraced Victorian style house and my system used to consist of a Tannoy SFX5.1 sub/satellite speaker system driven by an Onkyo TX-SR309 AV receiver.
It was a great little system but it was actually too powerful for my environment. I got fed up with having to watch movies at 25% volume level in order not to upset anyone around me. It was like owning a brand new Ferrari and only being allowed to drive around at 15mph. I was browsing through the June 2014 Home Cinema Choice magazine and came across a review of this headphone system. The introductory price was a little steep for me and so I sourced a unit directly from Japan.

--- Unboxing and Connecting ---
I was impressed with the quality of the actual headphones even though most of it is constructed from plastic.

I thought I would try these, as i was intrigued by the 7.1, 9.1 claim. I generally use Senn HD 800, Shure 846,Westone 4r, so not expecting to be as good,particular as there are wireless. I use these with a Sky box,and a Mac Mini Computer. The box is a simple affair, 3 Hdmi in,! out,Opt in, Opt out, and Analog line in.The closed back headphones are quite well made, very comfortable,and very stable. They have to be set up,via the headphones,so make sure you can read the display on the main unit. The USB charging and the on/off switch is on one ear cup,and Menu/Volume/input, on the other.Ok,Ok,get on with it,whats it sound like!?. Overall,quite neutral,BUT,with a bit of EQ,they then come alive. Treble,clear,neither sharp or sibilant, mellow mids well defined,not to far forward,and a really good musical bass,which does not bleed over into the mids. Soundstage. Wider than you would expect from closed back,and a far better depth than expected. Worth the money?. That is for you to decide,but if you have a family,and do not want to disturb late night listening,these might be for you. Highly Recommended.

These headphones are superb for watching movies and playing games. They go very loud, produce thudding bass and clear dialogue. I wouldn't use them for listening to music as they don't compare to my Denon AH-D7000's (which admittedly cost a lot more back in the day). However, I bought the Sony headphones to avoid annoying the neighbours for late night gaming and movies. They produce much better surround sound than conventional stereo headphones.
One word of warning: Although they support 4k hdmi passthrough, it is limited to a maximum frequency of 24hz. For pc gamers looking to upgrade to 4k this presents a real drawback. Ideally Sony should have added support up to 60hz.
Please note this is not a problem for movie playback, so if you don't care about gaming at 4k above 30 frames per second then you'll be fine. I would have also preferred the input box to support more than 3 hdmi devices (but would obviously cost Sony more to make).
