I have seen some comments online that these are prown to slip off your head and yes I can see that with a narrowish headband this may happen although for most day to day use this isn't a problem.
Sound quality via bluetooth is good but not great (via a std non AptX connection) it's missing a fair bit of treble detail which causes a warm sound signature, for me a little bit of eq is required. I have tried to switch this to AptX mode as I have a compatible transmitter but the manual is unhelpful. It refers you to the Help guide which doesn't seem to exist. I have contacted Sony about this and await their response.
Range is not bad, not 10m but then I don't think I've had any bluetooth device which reaches that, but better than some audio devices at around 7m without any dropout in an area with a wifi router close by.
Active noise reduction is good, I like the fact that you can turn it off to save battery and still hear the audio (tut tut Bose), I do think the Bose system is slightly better and those headphones are a little more comfortable, I have a set of QC2s. Although I think the Sony build quality seems better than Bose.Read more ›
So far, they're comfortable to wear, connect with my iPhone brilliantly easily and are generally really enjoyable to use. I like having ffd/rwd vol up/down controls, and the clarity of phone conversations doesn't seem too bad either.
The noise cancelling capabilities so far, I must admit, I haven't found entirely brilliant - they don't fully cancel out over ground trains (though Husband says they're great on the underground) and don't dim things like the noise of a vacuum cleaner particularly noticeable - though maybe I've just not got them setup correctly.
As an intro to wireless noise cancelling headphones, they're great for the money; affordable enough to buy as an 'experiment', knowing that headphones only last a year or so, and then if they're great look at a slightly higher model. I love that they charge via USB, it's nice not to be wasting batteries, and if you have a portable phone charger you can power them from that if they happen to go down while you're out and about (or your phone - using bluetooth non-stop does drain the battery somewhat, of course). Though the downside of not having replaceable batteries of course is that if you're out and about and they die, you then have to wait til they're charged up, whereas if they ran on AAs you could immediately pop more batteries in. There doesn't seem to be any way of indicating how full/low the charge is either, so it's a bit of a roulette if you're using them heavily! What would make these superb is if there was an app you could download which allowed you to see their battery status.
More to be added to this review once they're tested on a plane!
Just a note, these are currently £129 with free delivery from Sony UK online.
I thought I would pipe in and write something about these headphones here as I have recently purchased a pair. I have a fair few sets of personal audio devices and good quality home audio kit (Technics + Tannoy Dual Concentric 609's + Monitor Audio home theatre kit) and I would like to think I have experience of good sound quality. My previous set of high end headphones were B&W P5's, which I sold then ended up getting another set (broken but reworked with new drivers). I am a perfectionist so if I am not happy with something I generally try and fix it / upgrade it or get rid. If it doesn't provide what I consider great performance, it goes...
With regard to the best set of on ear headphones prior to my recent purchase would have to be the R7 Premium (Henson audio type) bluetooth headphones. For any price they are outstanding and provide an open, detailed soundstage at the same time providing punchy and tight bass and treble (that I admittedly shy toward in my musical preference).
Now onto the Sony MDR-ZX750BN.
They provide a sound that isn't too dissimilar to the P5's and the R7 Premium / Henson audio type headphones, tight, punchy without mid's that are overly pronounced. The treble is very much apparent but is detailed and not over the top. As has been mentioned in other places, you can really drive these to deafening levels without distortion (some acoustical engineer has tested on some site and mentioned they go LOUD without changing characteristics). The bass from these is great and really works well for high quality house / trance / techno / etc recordings. Neither the bass nor the treble gets muddied.Read more ›
