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.

Flimsy, it does Not fit firmly over the Ear, Short range, it can't be charged with an electric charger, it must be charged via a USB only from a PC or a laptop, which is not always very convenient, the instruction provided were very complicated but It took me very short time to set it up.
I am a big fan of Sony, but this product is Too expensive, Not a great value for what it offers.
I may buy this product or recommend it to a friend, if it was less than 50% of that price, Otherwise NOT.

          It is great for listening to music. The sound quality is excellent and you can add bass if you want to. It fits over your ears perfectly. Other optional features of the phone such as turning on and off, syncing to devices, and help options could be better. Overall it is a high quality item.

          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 .
