I really like these headphones. I am coming from a pair of monster turbine ear buds and the improvement in bass and sound is remarkable as you would expect going from buds (even high quality) to high end over ears. The feel of the set on your head is light and comfortable, while i haven't tried to much activity other than household chores I find it unrealistic to think that these are going to stay on during exercise or anything but every head is different. Sound quality wise, the bass is superb without much distortion. I feel that the other ranges are clear and well represented also. It should be noted also that there is a bass button which can be turned on or off depending on your activity. I love the NFC bluetooth connection which makes connecting to your phone a cinch every time. The onboard buttons are also easy to navigate due to tactile dots put on certain ones so you can tell which button you are on, this saves you digging for your phone or device to change song, pause or answer a call. The fold flat design is nice for packing but they do not fold any more compactly than shown in the picture. The materials feel like quality and the design is clean and crisp and not so loud as other brands are often. I was pointed to Sony headphones in general do to their long positive history of high end headphones and good reviews of models that came before this one. I also was deterred from beats because i have found that, in my opinion, while they do have good sound much of their price is spent on marketing and being a fashion icon rather than sound quality and their actual product. These are at a lower price point also compared to most models so that is also attractive. I was dissapointed because these come with absolutely no case, no bag or anything which is pretty irregular for high end headphones. Also you may be interested to know that the supplied charging cord is USB only and is only about 16 inches long so their probably won't be any listening while charging unless you like your head on the desk, but you can use the included audio cable for passive listening.

Great sound, bulky look
The headset produces great sound and blocks out most of the background noise. They have a nice fit, but they are very large and look like half a soup can on your ears....Read complete review
The headset produces great sound and blocks out most of the background noise. They have a nice fit, but they are very large and look like half a soup can on your ears. If you don't care about style, this is a good product. I am hesitant to wear them in public due the bulky size.

About Me Quality Oriented
Comments about Sony Black Over-Ear Extra Bass Smartphone Headphones:
My first over the ear headphones and I am greatly impressed by not only the sound quality and the build but also the price. I was researching the best value headphones and I had compared other brand names headphones namely Bose and Beats but they were all pricey compared to this Sony headphones. I also got a great deal from ABT and here I have been using this for over a month.I watched a few HD movie trailers and the sound quality felt like I was in a movie theater. The bass boost option will enhance low frequency sounds. Listening to music is amazing and crsip clear sound.I would buy this product for my family and friends .

I think this is as good as an expensive Bose headphone, but at a much cheaper price. I would highly recommend this

Love the sound quality. Easy to set up and use. Very disappointed you must charge with a computer. I use these with my iPad and iPhone. We are traveling and did not bring a laptop. They are a worthless piece of equipment to me right now. Completely ridiculous, and beyond irritating.
Sound Incredible, especially with a real equalizer
from Vancouver, BC, Canada
I am totally satisfied with the level of utility they have provided me in the past 10 months. I normally use these with my Windows PCs and tablets, and I use a third party equalizer: equalizer apo with peace extension to make these sound even better by tweaking them according to my taste. I strongly recommend installing a third party equalizer that works with BT audio output, since the difference in audio quality would be day and night with proper calibration. The built-in equalizers in phones does nothing compared to an eq such as equalizer apo. Also, I don't use the in-built bass boost feature, btw. The only downside is that these don't come with a carrying case, but hey, who cares: Carrying case is only in good-to-have category when these headphones are in must-have category. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for an Incredible sounding pair of BT Headphones.
Best Headphone Ever Buy
The bass is perfect. The sound is amazing. Even with Bluetooth, the sound still consistent not like different headphone i ever had. This even better than BOSE Q25. I should know about this before i bought the bose.
