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 .
