Sony MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth Premium Xtra Bass Overhead Headphones - Black.
Quick Start Guide
From the manufacturer
Powerful, punchy sound.
Step up to punchy, resonating rhythms. Feel more depth and clarity with an Electro Bass Booster that recreates the thumping beats in your favourite dance music.
Electro Bass Booster for club-like beats
Feel your headphones throbbing with deep, club-like bass. The Electro Bass Booster is a powered bass enhancer that increases low-frequency sound using Digital Signal Processing. Driven by the rechargeable battery in the headphones, this technology provides more of a multi-sensory, deep bass experience than conventional bass boost enhancers. You can turn Electro Bass Booster on and off, depending on the music you are listening to.
Feel your headphones throbbing with deep, club-like bass. The Electro Bass Boost
Beat Response Control technology delivers tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximises airflow within the low frequency range, optimising the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms.
High sensitivity for a loud, clear sound
With a high sensitivity of 102 dB/ mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you’ll hear a louder sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.
Easy wireless streaming with Bluetooth
Based on radio waves, Bluetooth technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won’t be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you’re free to stream all of your favourite music from your smartphone or tablet to your headphones.
One-touch listening to play instant music
NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex set-up sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device* to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth settings.
Swivel folding design makes travel easy
The perfect pairing for whose who live life on the go. The sliding metal headband and swivel folding design makes it easy to store your headphones when not in use or while traveling. The earcups swivel flat to allow easy packing in a suitcase or for slipping into a bag.

If you get the volume and EQ right, they can give a nice listening experience to instrumental music with lots of low end, and may work for some really bass heavy tracks, otherwise they are not really intended for music. They will work, but I prefer to use my in ear headphones. But they stay plugged into my PC and occasionally my electric piano and work a treat for both of those.
I have anxiety issues and rarely go out alone, but with these on and some nice soothing ambient music playing, I don't feel so anxious, I almost look forward to going shopping on my own. I feel isolated and insulated, it's a good feeling for me. I used to wear on ear headphones, but they allowed the outside world in, not these, well certainly not at the volume I use.
It's comfortable to wear for long period of time and it won't have the hair pulling effect.
Overall very happy with the product. Apart from the cable problem (guess that how they make you buy their own brand)
The sound quality of these headphones is phenomenal and the bass still blows me away to this day. If you are into a lot of hip hop/R&B/rap music like myself, then you will thoroughly enjoy what these headphones have to offer, with their deep booming sound quality. Despite being able to go to a very high volume, the passive noise cancellation provided by the encased ear muffs is excellent at making sure that others cannot hear your music.
These ear muffs also provide incredible amounts of comfort as they are a good inch thick. I often travel long distances with these earphones and not once have I experienced any discomfort; something which i have not had with any other headphones. The swivelling feature of the ear cups also allow for these headphones to be stored flat in a bag, which something i find very useful.
The adjustable headphone band functions well, maintaining its position but not stiff to adjust. The band itself is reasonably flexible meaning that it can adapt to the shape of your head and helps prevent breakage through impact or being crushed.
The overall aesthetics are beautiful with the chrome band, metal finish ear cups, matte black exterior with subtle red trim in places. With a pair of these on your head, you can be sure that you'll be listening in style.
The bass is mental
Battery life is amazing
Bluetooth connection speed is fast and simple. Can even be paired to multiple devices at the same time, for example paired to a phone for use with calls, and a media device for music.
Comfortable cushioning can be worn for a good few hours, then maybe need adjusting or removed for 5 minutes, nothing major, no pain.
Bluetooth radius is pretty decent, atleast 15m away in a different room before it began to stutter and finally drop.
Does get sweaty
Sound isnt very loud
Rotating mechanism can get loose enough that shaking your head slightly or moving the headphones close where you can hear will mean you can hear a bit of rattle.
Can't be used while charging
