    Not too bad…

    I have been using 30-60 dollar headsets and finally wanted a better quality headset with great sound. This headset looks great and feels great on my head. The noise cancelling is wonderful, I can’t hear anything outside my office. Now I gave this a 4 star because I am a bit disappointed with the sound quality. It’s truly know different then my 40 dollar headset. The noise cancelling makes the sound better but not as much as I was expected. So, now I find myself wanting to buy a higher priced headset 🙁

    overall quality

    These headphone are great the only thing i dislike is after wearing for a long time your head starts hurting which can easily be fixed if you wear a hat

    Excelente producto

    La calidad de sonido es excelente. La cancelación de ruido es muy buena aunque puede mejorar. Pero en general los mejores audífonos que se pueden conseguir calidad-precio. Muy recomendados.

    Great Headphones

    Bought these for work – absolutely worth it for the price. Noise-cancelling works incredibly well.If you’re on the fence or don’t know what to pick – this headset is worth it!!!

    Husband is completely able to block out my voice

    Bought these as a gift for my husband whose BOSE headphones had finally died. He is very happy with them. In fact, I often have to wave frantically in front of him to get his attention. Noise canceling feature clearly works well.

    Great value

    Compared to the pricier models this is equal in performance; the miniscule difference in noise cancelling between this and pricier models does not make a noticeable loss in day to day useAmazing value

    worth the price of the headphones.

    the headphones work great, they sound amazing, and ultimately have a long battery life. if you want good headphones for the gym or for your playstation these are worth the money, and with the app for the headphones being able to make a custom equalizer makes them even better.

    Very comfortable

    I love these and have a great feel to them (you forget you are wearing them). The battery life is amazing the sound is nice and tight. One thing about these is that they make a soft popping sound coming from the diaphragm when you adjust them or move them once wearing them. I suppose that it’s from the vacuum they create for the noise cancellation. I give this a good solid purchase for the money because they are solid and the sound is great! 4.5/5

    These are “100 dollar” headphones. As long as you keep that in mind, and stop making ridiculous comparisons, then you will realize that these are great. Noise cancellation works as it should; put them on, and you can barely hear things around you. I can not hear a person talking at a normal volume even if they are standing right in front of me.Sound quality is on par for the price point. Good clarity, bass, and decent highs. Again, not 1000 dollar headphones.Connection works as it should, I have had zero issues with connecting to an iPhone. Buttons are fine – read the instructions, learn how to use them, and they work great.Best part is that these are LIGHT. I mean light weight. I can wear them all day without discomfort. Only thing to note is that these are a very light color and will show dirt and other surface damage easily; not a fault, just something to be aware of. Does not come with a case, although any generic case will fit.

    great battery life

    got these as a holiday gift for my boyfriend and he loves them. the battery life is the most impressive aspect to be honest, he rarely ever needs to charge them despite using them almost every day. the only reason these aren’t getting a full five stars from me is because I feel they are a bit over-priced. Compared to other headphones at this price point, these ones in particular just feel cheaper and lower quality. The performance is still overall very nice, I just feel you could get a nicer pair at a similar price point.

    Good Sound for the Buck

    For a bluetooth headphone under $100 this SONY WH-CH720N produces very good sounds.Construction – very light weight / comfortable on my head even wearing for extended period of time but my ears can get warmSound – through bluetooth – prominent bass but not overpowering, decent smooth mid range and clear highs. However it lacks the “airiness” and the “crispness” when compared to the more expensive bluetooth headphone.Through wired connection – sounds just like wireless connection with power on; however with power off the sound is significantly worse / lifeless so there must be some active equalization going on in the background. So make sure you turn the power on while using wired connection.Noice cancelation – decent for the price.Overall this is a great bluetooth headphone for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money.

    Good starter headphones I guess

    Great battery life and decent sound for the price. The buttons for volume are hard to find with your fingers. For me they start hurting the ear after a while from there not being enough padding to keep the hard speaker part off of your ear, so it is basically hard plastic pressed up against your ear. If you position them just right it keeps some distance, but it feels weird. Overall, not bad for a starter pair. There’s probably some better ones at the same price point I would guess.

    I’m not a paid reviewer, I was NOT immediately blown away by the sound but later I was blown away

    1-4. 1st**Sound is the most important thing to me when buying headsets. I know I’m listening to mp3’s which dull sound, and that’s the reason why I need headphones that can keep as much quality as possible. These headsets do accomplish that BUT I was not immediately blown away by the sound as much as I was later blown away or moreso extremely satisfied. The sound out the box presented a solid sound but the volume was too low no matter how much I turned the volume up. This was the problem if I used the analog cord or bluetooth. I then went to the app to do the equalizer thing and that drastically improved the quality of sound BUT not the volume (I’ll get to the noise cancellation later). I’m not going deaf and I don’t want to damage my ears, but the sound was unexpectedly and unsatisfyingly low for a $129 headset. I was afraid I’d bought a well-advertised product that was a gimmick. So I went to do my internet research and I found apps that also improved or boosted the sound even more. I got what I wanted!! The headsets can increase volume A LOT more than what Sony offers, but you have to search to find an app that will do it bc the Sony app didn’t succeed in making it loud enough for me at the gym. It did cancel the outside noise but the volume just didn’t do it for me. I can say that now that I found an app to increase the volume I can notice a small bit of sound distortion at the upper volume range, but it’s worth it. It didn’t compromise the integrity of the music. AND No I don’t work for any apps and I’m not trying to sell you one, just saying that’s what I had to do to reach a better volume. 2nd**Noise cancellation. I never owned noise cancellation headphones before, so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I can ABSOLUTELY say the noise cancellation WORKS and does a great job of cancelling all the noises I don’t want to hear. 3rd** Are they worth it? Yes, especially now that the price came down from $120 to $90, but I was a little upset bc the price changed like literally one day after I bought them higher and I live outside the US now, so returning them to get that $30 back isn’t really an option. 4th I wish the Equalizer options that I set using Sony’s app would work when I choose to use the analog cord. Sidenote: If you are in your house or grocery store or more private places then the volume Sony gives you is perfect, BUT WHEN you are in high energy places like the airport, gym, busy streets and you sometimes want the OPTION to have your music louder then that is when these headsets failed AND I had to download an app on my phone to boost the volume.

    A Balanced Blend of Comfort and Performance

    The Sony WH-CH720N offers an excellent combination of affordability, comfort, and noise-canceling performance. While it may not compete with higher-end models in terms of premium materials and top-tier noise cancelation, it stands out as a compelling option for users seeking a budget-friendly alternative without sacrificing essential features. Whether you’re a frequent traveler or someone who just wants a reliable pair of headphones for everyday use, the WH-CH720N delivers a commendable audio experience at an accessible price.

    Good quality

    Works very well. ANC is very good for a headphones in this price category. Multiple device switching is seemless and easy to use. Sound is also very good.

    Best headset I’ve ever owned in 2024 hands down

    This is the first headset I’ve owned where I’ve actually noticed the “noise cancellation” feature. Other headsets have this weird pitchy noise that comes as a side effect for their implementation but this headset is the first where I can actually say I hear (or don’t hear) the difference. Absolutely game changing. The other remarkable thing about this headset is how light it is. I’ve owned other headsets in the past and this very well challenges some lighter on-ear headsets I have. It is also surprising how well of a fit this is when being worn. One would thing it’s very difficult to develop a design that would fit as well as this does but as soon as I put it on, I could hear the same kind of ambiance as if I had put ear plugs in. Truly a feat not many competitors can claim and prove. The next thing I really like is the battery life. I don’t get much time with it during the week but I almost always using it during the weekend. Battery lasts for a good amount of time as expected and while this is not unique to this headset, it does deliver on that. Where I think this headset shines is in how fast it charges. It only takes about a little over an hour to fully charge this headset and I have headsets with the same battery life. Very impressive. A perhaps unimportant detail that is subjective to most can be the sounds and voice notifications that are built into the headset. Unlike others I have owned, this headset has very pleasing notification sounds and audible/understandable voice notifications. The only thing I can say I don’t considerably enjoy is the depressingly short USB cable that it comes with to charge the device. I’ve seen this in other Sony products, so I won’t say I’m surprised but I can’t help but wonder how this was meant to be charged by people? I would rather have a 2-3 foot cable that I can at least connect up to a wall socket or something other than let’s say a laptop directly adjacent to it. Other than that, this product is pretty phenomenal and I look forward to keeping this product as my primary headset.

    Not quite sure why people are raving so much

    I had a pair of cheap noise canceling headphones that were about $12. Since I was using them a lot, I thought I might upgrade to a brand name for even better quality. The overall music experience feels about the same. But there are two problems ruining my experience with these headphones. Since I wear glasses, I’m essentially being pinched on both sides of my head at all times while wearing the headphones. Which feels like you have a headache that will never end. And no matter how much adjusting I do with the tension of the headphones or moving my glasses around, won’t fix. Also I have a shaved head, so the bar across the top is either loose and feeling like they might fall off. Or they are digging into the top of my head, giving me a third pain point. It’s fine for a couple minutes but if you’re wearing these for say a 90 minute workout, your head might be in a lot of pain from multiple directions. While the sound is good, you’re mostly paying for a brand name.

    Great affordable headphones

    I recently purchased the Sony WH-CH720N Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones, and I must say, I’m thoroughly impressed. These headphones offer an exceptional listening experience combined with superb comfort.Sound Quality:The sound quality is outstanding. The bass is punchy without overpowering the mids and highs, resulting in a well-balanced audio profile. Whether I’m listening to music, watching movies, or playing games, the audio reproduction is crisp and clear. The noise isolation is also commendable, as it effectively blocks out external noise, allowing for an immersive listening experience.Comfort:One of the standout features of these headphones is their comfort. The over-ear design and plush ear cushions provide a snug fit without feeling too tight. I’ve worn these headphones for extended periods without experiencing any discomfort or fatigue, which is crucial for long listening sessions.Build Quality:The build quality is top-notch. The headphones feel durable and well-constructed, with sturdy materials that can withstand everyday use. The adjustable headband ensures a perfect fit for any head size, and the ear cups swivel for added convenience. Additionally, the included carrying case offers protection during travel, making these headphones ideal for on-the-go use.Wireless Performance:I opted for the wireless version of these headphones, and I’m pleased with their performance. The Bluetooth connectivity is reliable, with a strong and stable connection. The battery life is impressive, providing hours of uninterrupted playback on a single charge. The built-in controls on the ear cups make it easy to adjust volume, skip tracks, and answer calls without reaching for my device.Overall, I highly recommend the Sony WH-CH720N Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones. With their exceptional sound quality, comfortable fit, and reliable wireless performance, they’re a fantastic choice for any audiophile or casual listener.

    Great Headphones

    I have purchased several no-name headphones over the past 10 years. I just considered them disposable because I would only spend $35. or less every 1.5 to 2 years. I got tired of doing that this year. When my headphones went out a few months ago I decided to put my money into a name brand. I purchased these headphones and I do not regret it. Of course, they were on sale at the time. I wear my headphones for TV about 12 hours a day because my husband and I have very different schedules. The only thing I would change is the range. When they say 30 feet they mean 30 feet. So far I just love them, the sound and noise canceling is great. I would buy them again.

    Quality Product

    My daughter asked for noise cancelling headphones for school and after reading lots of reviews of various products, I settled on these. She absolutely LOVES these headphones. She uses them constantly throughout the day at school and at home. She doesn’t go anywhere without them. They seem to be a very durable product as she is 6 months into using them and they still look brand new. They are easy to clean too. We ended up buying another pair for my son for Christmas and now he is attached to his as well. Definitely recommend.

    Perfect for use with mobile devices

    I have been using these headphones with my Android and Apple portable devices and they perform flawlessly. Setup and connections are easy and the wireless range, sound quality and battery life are excellent. The noise cancellation is definitely not on par with my much more expensive corded Bose noise cancelling headphones that I primarily use when I travel. I purchased the Bose NC phones long before Sony produced one.Install the Sony headphone App from the Google Play store or Apple’s App Store and you can customize the sound quality to your heart’s content. I have also discovered a side benefit: I use the Sony headphone app along with the Roku tablet app on an Android tablet linked to a Roku Ultra streaming box and can now clearly hear every word said in movies and TV shows and the movie soundtracks sound fantastic as well. I also like the fact these headphones have the option to connect a 3.5mm cord for even better sound quality and the cord is part of the package. We have been brainwashed into thinking digitally compressed music over a wireless connection is the best we can get. Not true at all!What can I say? No Sony product I own has ever disappointed. All of my Stereo Components, TV’s and portable music devices are Sony products that I have owned for decades and they still work (including my KV 36XBR450 TV from 2001!) My current 65X900A XBR LCD TV is still performing like a champ although I get an “application not available” message at startup now. Highly recommend these Sony wireless headphones for use with all portable devices.

    Very useful

    The sound on these is great for the money. I love the pass through option. When I do my homework I oftentimes have to watch videos or lectures, this way I can listen to videos while watching tv or chat with others without bothering them. They are not completely soundproof but they do a good job cutting outside noise. My only beef is that they don’t fold down, I’m so scared I’m going to break them when I take them out of my house or put them in my purse.

    I love these

    They actually fit over my ears rather than most of my ears and pushing on the tips of my ears. I can turn the noise cancel on or off depending on my preference and the noise canceling works really well. The cushions are soft, sound quality is fantastic, and the battery lasts for what feels like forever and charges quickly.

    As a present ot seems ok

    Bought this as a present and the recipient seems to like it. They like the fit, the sound is decent, and the noise cancelling works good, but its not a high-end product. The bottom line is, for a present that will probably get a lot of wear and most definitely tear, its worth the money for decent wireless sound. I dont know how rugged they are or the longevity, but they worked well for a months now so so far, so good.

    Meh! Good but I was expecting more

    I’ve had the CH-700N for two years now and decided to try this newer version of it the CH-720N (Both $99), all my tests to compare them go with the older version as my preference. Don’t get me wrong, the new version CH-720N not bad at all and you can customize more things in the Sony headphones app with the equalizer and stuff but the listening experience just doesn’t surpass the older one, dissapointed. The more I tried to customize it to my most prefered mode it just is not as top notch as the older version. Bought them to improve my listening not to go back but it’s ok, 4 stars as I’m not completly satysfied.Review coming from a constant listener with the Sony headphones, the only thing better than this is XM4, just way higher amount of money than this, but my listening with those is way far better.

    super light – sounds good – great deal

    I had the Soundcore by Anker Life Q35 ANC Headphones. I liked them. ANC was great. and while stock they were a little bass boomy, they EQed out just fine. The only issue I had was at the 1 year point, the plastic it was made out of started falling apart. I had 3 pieces of the headset fall apart until it finally broke enough that I couldn’t wear them. I tried supergluing them, but they weren’t really stable on my head. Still sounded good though.Since I liked the Q35s so much, I decided to get the Q45s. I agonized over the Q45 vs the cheaper space one, but decided to get the Q45s when they were on sale and the Ones were not. When I got them they seemed like they were made better, so I was just going to be careful using them. Then I listened to them.The Q45s tweeters hurt my ears. I tried EQing the treble down and it just sounds muffled. I switched to the Q35s thinking I was just imagining things and the treble didn’t hurt at all. I tried turning the treble up and while it sounded like there was too much treble, it still didn’t hurt my ears. I returned them.My next pick was this Sony WH-CH720N because it had physical buttons. I’ve used touch select and really didn’t like it. I’m totally team physical buttons. The ANC isn’t as good as the Q35, but it’s good enough. The tweaters don’t hurt my ears, and it sounds great. The battery life is like the Q35s. A couple all day listening. It’s not as good as the q45, but it’s not short.What’s amazing is the headphone weight and comfort. I didn’t even know you could get over the ear headphones with ANC so light. I forget they are on, they are so light. I can totally recommend these.

    A lot to love at a decent price

    SECOND UPDATE – 11/9/2023 OK, so I have been living with these for a couple of months now and I feel I can say some things with more confidence.1. Comfort is still a bit hit or miss. I will say the choice to put those microphones or whatever those things that stick out on the insides of the earcups was not great. I don’t always feel them pressing on my ears but the earpads are not very thick and if you don’t have them on in exactly the right way (assuming you can find a way that works for you) then the pads will flatten a bit and you’ll feel them on your ears. It’s not exactly painful. Just unpleasant. 2. And I feel the need to come back to the ear cushions themselves. Again, they just barely fit over my ears. And I wear glasses so this is a big issue with most headphones. I can sometimes get the cushions just right so they don’t smash the tips of my ears against the arms of my glasses too much but it sometimes takes a bit of extra fiddling around with them that can be annoying when I’m not in the mood for it. Again, not too much of a knock against Sony since this is a widespread issue with headphones in general. Manufacturers just seem to think if they make the cushions soft, they will be comfortable. Nope. If it smashes your ears, it will start to hurt after a while no matter how soft it is.3. The battery life is decent but I do find myself having to charge them more often than I expected. Prior to these, I had an inexpensive pair of Jlab headphones and although their sound quality and features were lacking, the battery life was outstanding and I was just used to not charging for days and days. I pretty much wear headphones all day every day and I generally find that these will be at 50% after a couple of days. Of course that’s with noise cancelling on. But also, these are noise cancelling headphones so they were designed to be used with it on for long periods. Or should have been. I don’t know what the capacity of the battery is in these but the battery packs they use in wireless headphones are not expensive items anymore. You can buy a set of $30 wireless headphones now with a huge capacity battery. So, yes. These are lower end Sony but they’re still well above the price you pay for really basic wireless headphones. They shouldn’t have skimped on the battery capacity. That said, though I haven’t actually kept track of how many hours, it probably does meet the stated runtime. I had just hoped they were being conservative with the numbers. But also, you can’t use them and charge them at the same time so if you use your headphones constantly, that can be annoying. I don’t like to run lithium batteries much below 50%. I don’t know that it’s bad for them exactly but all of my lithium batteries have lasted me for many years using that policy so that’s what I do. When I see 40-50% I charge the battery. I know they have the quick charge feature but I like to charge and forget for many hours. It would be more useful if I could plug into a power bank for 15 minutes and still use the headphones while it’s charging. But nope. You plug into a charger and the headphones turn off. Everything said, I’m reasonably happy with them but I paid the $150 asking price they were selling for when I bought them. Knowing all I know now, I would not pay that price again for these. These are $70 headphones. Tops. They’re not that comfortable. The battery life is easily matched (or surpassed) by the least expensive wireless headphones on Amazon. The stock sound quality is not impressive at all. (I will say they sound pretty good if you tweak the EQ). The only things I have been really happy about is once I got them paired with my PC, they always connect right away when I turn them on. That’s something that is hit or miss with most bluetooth devices. And can be incredibly annoying when you have to fight to get something connected every single time. I’ve also been pretty satisfied with the noise cancelling. Which they’re the first NC headphones I’ve ever owned so I have nothing to compare them to. I’m not really understanding what Sony was trying to do with these. Their top of the line ANC headphones might be some of the best ANC but are they really $400 good? Well, if they’re anything like these, they are good but significantly overpriced.UPDATE – 9/25/2023 I realize my original review is a bit long and probably most people don’t want to read all that so after living with these for a week or so, here are some key points that I think people will want to know.1. Comfort is just OK for people with small or medium ears that don’t stick out too far. Beyond that, the comfort might be anything from uncomfortable to painful.2. The ANC is good enough for me. I don’t fly. I don’t use them on a bus or train or anything. I use them at home. They block out things like computer fans and voices in adjacent rooms. I have a fan right by my head and although I can still hear it, the ANC really tames it to a very gentle hiss. If voices or TV are in the same room with you, it will cause them to seem to recede quite a bit but you will still probably hear them (especially TV). The ANC works better on some frequencies than others. It almost eliminates some noises but (for example) the sound of water running nearby is something you will definitely hear.3. I use these 90% with my Windows 10 PC and I have not experienced any of the disconnection issues that many have reported with them as long as I am only using them with my PC. However, when I do connect them to my Android phone, if I leave them connected for a while, things can get glitchy and if I then turn off the bluetooth on my phone, it will sometimes make weird things happen. Like if I have the ANC turned on on the headphones, it will turn off and forget the EQ settings I have chosen. Also, sometimes when I try to disconnect them from the phone by simply turning off bluetooth, they don’t make the disconnect sound. I don’t know. I’m glad I didn’t buy them to use exclusively with the phone. I have a different set of headphones for that. I just wanted to include this in my review to note that I did indeed notice some issues when I left them connected to my phone for a while. I will be keeping them because PC is all I care about.END UPDATE———————ORIGINAL REVIEWThings that mattered to me in choosing these headphones…1. I’m not going to try and sugar coat this too much. I don’t have money to burn. But a set of headphones that check all my boxes without doing anything I hate for a price I can handle is a tall order. Good headphones have never been cheap. ANC is still a premium feature (though this is changing fast). These headphones were just barely in my price range at $150. And frankly, although I like everything about them (so far) I think $100 would have been closer to the price these should be selling for. This segment of the market is crowded and if I was willing to gamble even more than I did, I could have probably gotten something I was happy with for significantly less than that $150. I went with Sony because I’m an old guy and I know that you usually don’t pay more for a Sony product for no reason.2. Comfort. Of course, we’re talking perceived comfort. Comfort involves a lot of guesswork. For these, it appears that I mostly guessed right. These just fit my ears with a little pressure here and there. My ears are not small but also not that large. If you have large ears, you should probably go somewhere where you can try the headphones on before you buy. I probably should have done this myself because comfort is always my top priority (other than price). Most likely the pads on these will not be difficult to replace should the need arise. And it usually does with headphones. Sooner or later, the pads will always wear out.3. ANC – Of course. This is my first pair of ANC headphones and it’s everything I want. The transparency mode is slightly quieter than I would like but it’s acceptable. I’ve seen some people complaining about the ANC not being effective on these. Not sure what they’re talking about but maybe they’re coming from much higher end ANC. For me, the first day I had them, I had some people come to see me and they were banging on my door. I heard absolutely nothing. They were freaked out because they thought something was wrong. So….my verdict on this is if you want perfect ANC, maybe shop around. I’m not here to tell you it’s the best. I don’t have anything to compare it to. I can only say it leaves me wanting nothing and I’m happy with it.4. Sound quality – Out of the box, I found the factory sound to be lacking. But that usually happens with me when I have new headphones. I can’t say for sure if the burn in effect is psychological or real but all I can say is a new pair of headphones takes some getting used to for me. At least the EQ is sufficiently adjustable in the app and I managed to get them to sound very nice. It’s nice that the settings you choose in the app will be stored in the headphones so the same settings will apply on other devices. I mostly use Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 PC so I’m not going to be fiddling around with the app much. These can go pretty loud and have decent bass. The drivers can provide good clarity for mids and highs if you fiddle with the EQ. The stock EQ sounds muffled. But that also might be a result of them not having been burned in. CONS – It’s really nitpicking for me to find many cons. These are great headphones (at least initially).1. The buttons could be a bit more tactile. In particular, I find the play/pause button a bit difficult to find and always find myself hunting for it. It is right between the Vol +/- buttons and should stick out a little more than it does to make it obvious. Also, the ANC button is nearly flush with the earcup and still makes me hunt for it a bit more than I like. I think I’ll get used to these buttons eventually but I don’t love them.2. The shortest timer for the auto off that’s available in the app is 15 minutes. I was really kind of surprised that there was no option for a shorter time.3. The headband is adjustable by clicks. So if the size you need is between two clicks, you might have to have them slightly too tight or slightly too loose. The higher end Sony headbands with no clicks seem like they would be better in this way.4. Although (as I said) the comfort is pretty good, it’s not great. But this is not terribly unusual for lower end headphones. I strongly prefer over ear (earcups that surround the ears rather than sit on them and smash them) and I’m very picky about it. I don’t like it if my ears are not completely inside the earcups and I don’t think it’s asking much since my ears are not enormous. I find that these do kind of smash the tops of my ears. It’s not something I notice right away but after about half an hour or so, it starts to become something I’m almost constantly aware of. It’s not exactly painful but it isn’t really pleasant either. To make matters worse, there is a seam in the fake leather that runs all the way around the inside where your ear is probably gonna be if your ears are just slightly larger than the ears of a child. I find that many of these types of earpads have that seam and I don’t know it’s purpose but I know that ones that don’t have it tend to be easier on your ears even if your ears don’t fit perfectly. So all I’m saying is this isn’t some upstart company. This is Sony. These are low end Sony headphones but they’re still not really cheap and they’re still made by an enormous company that’s been around for many decades. I don’t know what it is. Almost every company that makes headphones of this sort makes the earcups too small for even slightly larger ears. I guess they think people with larger ears don’t use headphones. Of course my ears could be really large. In which case, I probably wouldn’t be able to wear them even if they were a little larger.5. Also, I have to kind of agree with all the other reviews that mentioned the little plastic part that sticks out from the area where the driver is on the inside of the earcup. I am not sure if it actually pushes on my ears or not but it seems like it might. I kind of feel something and it does stick out far enough to where I can see how it could rub your ears. I think these pieces are the place where the microphones are mounted so if that’s the case, they kind of have to be there but they probably don’t have to be as poorly designed as they are. I feel like I might be able to trim some of the plastic off if I really wanted to but I’m not going to start working on a brand new set of $150 headphones. It doesn’t bother me (yet) so maybe I’ll change my mind later on. I think this could have been avoided if the padding were a bit thicker on the earpads.

    beats studio 3 vs sony whch720N

    Build quality:Hard to say one is better than the other, the 720n is meant to be a lightweight headphone so it does feel a bit plasticky and cheap but it doesnt seem flimsy at all or that it would break. The ear cushions however don’t have much padding and could be better. I do love that they can lay flat though but not being able to fold the headphone in half is a serious downside for portability.The Studio 3s have a slightly better and more durable feeling construction and have better padding but are significantly heavier. Another thing too is the rubber headband cushion, I personally hate this as it snags my hair and makes it uncomfortable. The studios can fold in half and also come with a semi hardshell carrying case which is a huge bo nus for traveling and portability.Sound quality :This one is hard to compare as well I also am not an audiophile so this is from the perspective of someone who really just uses headphones for watching videos and music at the gym. They both sound okay, not great. Each one has a different sound profile to me. The 720n is more clear vs the studios having a more bass heavy punchy sound.ANC:The ANC works good on both. The beats have the standard like white noise style ANC which i did not really notice on the 720n. I will say the 720n has a better ANC in loud environments. with the beats i still feel the need to crank up the volume to drown out the outside noise with ANC on. However with the 720n it was incredible i could barely have the volume up but ANC cancels out the majority of the outside noise ( gym music and noise ) .transparency mode :neither of these works great. It does the job but if you need to have a conversation or actually hear anything the headphones will have to come off.Functionality:the buttons on the 720n are a bit hard to get used to but not a huge deal. i hate that there are only 2 modes vs the 3 on the studios but its not a huge deal. again not being able to fold takes a toll on functionality and portability. I do LOVE how light weight these are though , you can barely feel them on your head, and are extremely comfortable. The ear cushions aren’t great, you do get some sound leaking in when turning your head due to the ear cushions not creating a great seal. The Bluetooth connection works great with my iphone and there is also an app to customize and add more controls but i haven’t experimented with it much yet.the studio 3s have a weird very plastic feeling button as the controls for sound which definitely could have been improved for a more premium feel. They fold up, the have a case, they seem durable, so not much to complain on here. I just hate the rubber headband cushion but thats me personally. they have the apple chip for connection so no complaints there as i have an iphone.conclusion:both of these are great headphones at a similar price point. Id say if you are between the two the deciding factor would be sound, weight, function, and use. If you are looking for decent lightweight headphoens to have with good ANC and sound quality get the 720n. If you are looking for portable, bass heavy and punchy sound get the studios. Personally, I am still on the fence but I am leaning towards the studio 3s because of the portability. i know the sony wh xm4 is probably the sweet spot of everything im looking for but it is unfortunately out of my price range.

    Best Headphones I Ever Owned, Especially for the Money

    I have spent years fighting to find a decent pair of bluetooth headphones since no phone manufacturer wants to make a decent phone with a jack anymore (which is endlessly stupid, but I digress). I have tried everything form fancy expensive Galaxy Buds to a myriad of budget options, and all have the same problems. Flawed connectivity, noticeably glitchy, slightly reduced sound quality.These finally fix it. The inclusion of an option to use a headphone jack on devices that let you is a great feature. Along with multipoint connect. They fit perfectly around my skinny neck (your mileage may very on that), so travel with them is a breeze. And for the sound quality, these are absolutely the best headphones for your money.I was loathe to go to overears full time because I like being able to take one out to hear my surroundings, and every noise passthrough I used before was sucky. (usually the outside noise obnoxiously trebley). Not with these. I actually go to concerts to listen with my headphones on because it actually makes the concerts sound better than with no headphones. Extremely convincing, near perfect noise passthrough.The app is easy to use and has a great selection of features: from custom EQs, to adjusting the noise pass through, to other various quality of life settings. The 3D adaptive sound feature is great, though a little tricky to set up at first, and noise cancellation is very good, though not the best in the world. The battery life is also almost unbelievable. I use these headphones a lot–sometimes all day–and I still only have to charge them once or twice a week. Multipoint connection is also a very nice plus if, say, I am working at my computer and still want to be able to answer phone calls hands-free.There are some minor flaws with them, though. First sometimes very low bassey notes from the outside world can trigger the speakers in them and give you very loud, deep popping noises. (E.g., this occasionally happens when I am riding in the car and hitting bumps in the road). Occasional outside sounds in passthrough through will sound muddled. Also the noise cancellation–while quite good–isn’t perfect for every situation. Specifically, it has more trouble than, say, Bose headphones with loud, sudden sounds like fireworks. But for the money, it is still the best noise cancellation and passthrough system you can buy.Another (minor) complaint, though, is that the adaptive settings aren’t always very great. It often thinks I am sitting and automatically turns on noise cancellation when I am very much driving or walking around town or once even ice skating–all situations where passthrough is crucial. And even if I am sitting, sometimes I really want passthrough on (like if I’m in a cafe), but it automatically tries to turn noise cancelling on annoyingly. Thankfully, it can be easily overridden in the app. These days, I usually just keep the adaptive sound setting off and adjust the settings to fit the situation but sometimes it will randomly go back to automatic/adaptive mode.My final and complaint is with the microphone for phone calls. Sometimes it works perfectly and the other line can hear my fine, sometimes all they can hear is background noise, sometimes they really can’t hear me at all. I am not sure if it is some sort of firmware issue or if the microphone placement is just too far from my mouth, but for phone calls it can be a tad unreliable. When it works, which is around 75% of the time, it’s perfectly good even though I have to talk a little louder than I normally would sometimes.But all those flaws aside, these are probably the best all-around headphones I have owned and for the $120 I paid for them it’s a steal. They may be more expensive as I got them on sale, but I have used headphones multiple times the price that are poorer quality and less functional than these. I’d have paid upwards of twice the price for what I got.

    I thought they were over priced but now that I actually have them they’re awesome. Long battery life, nearly indestructible, and a good sound cancelling all go hand in hand to create a good listening experience. The mic is ok, nothing special. The headphones are light and comfortable and you can almost forgot they’re on your head.

    Great value for what you get

    As someone who has the AirPods Pro 2nd generation and appreciates good sound quality, I wanted a pair of headphones that could be over the head and have noise canceling. Because I have the Pros, I wanted something affordable and worth the price. Now having these for a full day, I’ll say its exactly what I had hoped. The noise canceling isn’t top-notch, but it gets the job done and gives me the headphone experience I wanted! One thing I’ll say is that I dislike how big these technically are with a third-party carrying case, it takes up a lot of space but at least they are lightweight and protected.For another reference, my current partner has the Airpods 1st generation and loves the Sony headphones so much in comparison. He gets overstimulated easily, and so having these cover his ears(he hates the noise-canceling pressure on my AirPods Pros, but feels these don’t do that) is helpful. The only thing he dislikes is the fact that his ears get hot from wearing them, and they are a big tight on his head (since his head is larger than mine).got these for $105, great value for the sale price! I would maybe stretch towards the $150 original price if i didn’t already have a pair of headphones or earphones at all.

    These won out over every other set of headphones I tried

    UPDATE 3/13/23: I noticed another reviewer mention that the padding has given out some after a while and I will concur that this has been my perceived experience as well. The padding flattens easily and I wish it was a bit more robust. I wouldn’t say that the speakers are poking my ear, but I do feel my ear being pressed slightly and it does lead to minor discomfort over time. So I would say that the padding could definitely be better on these, and it should be at this price point. I would maybe deduct a half star for this if that was an option, but since it’s not, I’m keeping my 5 star rating. I’m still happy with the sound, but I’ll definitely be looking out for some better pads.Original Review:I’m impressed with these headphones. They are really good. I will, however, call out from the beginning that you lose some functionality and build quality (potentially – more on that below) seen in more expensive headphones and even though these are “only” $150, I think it’s a bit pricey. But I think good headphones are just ridiculously expensive in general. With that out of the way, here are the headphones I tried in addition to the WH-CH720N: Sony XM4 & XM5, Sennheiser Momentum 4, Soundcore Q30 & Q45, and Technics EAH-A800.My main objective in getting new headphones was to get a serious sound quality upgrade from the Soundcore Life Q20’s that I’ve had for several years now, and I was finally ready to pay $300-$400 for it if I had to. I was looking for clear mids and highs with deep, clear, separate bass (think of the difference between a sound system with a separate subwoofer vs a sound system without that tries to pack the bass into the main speakers). With the caveat that sound quality is subjective to the listener, here are my thoughts on each of the headphones I tried:Technics EAH-A800 – absolute garbage and a joke at their price. These didn’t even merit more than a few minutes of listening.Soundcore Q45 – disappointingly uninspiring sound compared to the much cheaper Q30. They lack bass. I spent very little time with these because I knew that I would take the Q30’s over them without question.Soundcore Q30 – These are very good for their price (compared to the other options at that price). If I hadn’t been willing to spend $300+ for the best sound, I would have kept these despite the fact that they powered off in the middle of calls (a problem I believe is specific to OnePlus phones based on my research). But compared to more expensive headphones, the Q30’s bass was not as well defined/separated and it bled into all the frequencies, lending to an overall muddy sound – comparatively. But these are good, and at their price point, I doubt you can find better headphones.Momentum 4 – These headphones had, hands down, my favorite bass signature; it was fantastically clean and able to hit impressive lows I could not hear in any other cans. The overall sound was very good, although I never could get them to sound as clear as I wanted once I experienced the 720’s. The M4’s have fantastic battery life. Sadly, there were quite a few issues with the M4’s. They sound awful in wired mode – like, don’t even bother, they’re that bad. Taking calls on the M4s was a very weird experience; it’s hard to explain, but voices sounded kind of echo-y, but in the sense that it was like the voice was everywhere around me to the extent that I was sure that everyone else in the room was hearing the voice just as clearly as I was. I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not – all I can say for sure is that it was a very strange experience. The M4’s had software bugs that I just couldn’t overlook, such as the audio being out of sync with video when using aptx (I had to use the lower SBC format to get the audio in sync and this just didn’t make any sense!). The touch controls and on ear detection were a bit of a hit or miss. Software updates are unreasonably slow – like 20 minutes or longer. They are quiet – I found that I had to crank them up well past 50% to get enough volume, but at the end of the day, it didn’t really matter because they did get as loud as I ever needed and still had the ability to go louder. And they are on the heavier side, which meant they didn’t stay in place on my head if I looked down or up. I actually ordered a second pair hoping that the software issues were a defect, but the replacement had all the same issues. But that bass was so good I was tempted, even prepared, to overlook all of those shortcomings. Until I tried the XM5’s and the 720’s.Sony XM4 – I’m sure these were great for their time, but their age is evident. The sound was muddy and uninspiring to me. I quickly moved on from these.Sony XM5 – these are good – very good. I would have kept the XM5’s if the 720’s hadn’t been released just as I was comparing all of these headphones. The sound is very close to the 720’s, but just not quite as clear, though I think the bass may go a bit lower than the 720’s. It really mostly came down to price when deciding between the XM5 and 720. The XM5’s are feature rich with an excellent ambient mode (the best I’ve experienced). ANC is good, but not at the level I expected for their reputation and really not significantly better than most other headphones. Compared to the 720’s, I’d say the ANC actually blocked out less noise, but the XM5’s made almost no static sound with ANC on and that may have played into that perception because I think the slight static noise the 720’s make might just be covering up the external noises that I’m hearing more on the XM5’s. But getting the absolute best ANC was not the most important thing for me. I liked the touch controls on the XM5’s – it’s easier than feeling around for the correct button. But is it worth the price? Not for me – I’ll take the trade-offs of the 720’s for the savings, especially since I think the 720’s sound better. But I can easily see how someone would buy the XM5’s over the 720’s if money is not an issue.Finally, Sony WH-CH720N – these really are best described as the budget version of the XM5’s. Remember how I mentioned that they sound very similar to the XM5’s? Yeah, sometimes I forgot which headphones I was wearing, they are that close (post EQ-ing them to the best sound I could get from them). The ANC and Ambient modes aren’t quite as good on the 720’s, they don’t have touch controls (a positive or negative depending on the person), and they don’t feel as solidly built (though I might argue that is only because of how incredibly light they are – they actually seem well built and there are no creaks, but their lightness is easily perceived as “cheap”). The 720’s don’t come with a case and they don’t fold (but the XM5’s don’t fold, either); not a big deal to me. Not folding just means they have fewer breaking points and are less obnoxious to handle when off the noggin. These live on my desk, so a case is not important to me. For traveling, I prefer the compactness of earbuds anyway. The auto off feature only works after they lose bluetooth connection, which for the majority of us, only happens if we turn our phone off or walk far away from the headphones. So, not significant value there, though I do turn off my phone every night, so the headphones will at least shut off at night if I forget to do it manually, and that is good enough for me. The 720’s are strictly controlled with physical buttons that are well placed, though I find myself expecting the ANC/Ambient button to be on the back, not the front (don’t know why, because it actually makes sense the way they did it), causing me to push the wrong button more than I’d like. And I wish the volume up and down were more distinct from the play/pause button. The buttons are my only real (but minor) complaint, but I’m getting used to the buttons and will be fine in short order. The 720’s are slim compared to the XM5’s and the M4’s. And did I mention they are light? They are insanely light and extremely comfortable. Most importantly, the 720’s sound really good. While they don’t quite have the bass signature of the M4’s, they are so well balanced and clear across all of the frequencies (without being harsh or sibilant) while still having great, clear bass that it could be argued that the 720’s sound better. I just kept finding myself going back to the 720’s over every other set of cans. These headphones won out over the rest from my limited (but targeted) comparison. There might be better sounding headphones out there, but I haven’t found them.

    Great Value

    Pros:-Battery life, Only charge every 3-4 days when using for work for hours every day-Durable, dropped a couple times and sat on them once and still in one piece-Noise Canceling, Pretty good! Wear them on the noisy subway train and it does a good job tuning it out-Sound Quality, I upgraded from AirPods 3 to these and they’re a little better, not too much. The EQ on the Sony App does most of the heavy liftingCons:-Comfort, they are light but the top band is a bit narrow and I can usually feel it pressing in after a long day of wear. Not as bad as other over ear headphones though, probably about average comfort

    very pleased

    I mostly wanted headphones to block out my loud neighbors when they have summer yelling parties outside my window and it works pretty damn well for that. One guy is a real crooner and whooper, and at most it sounds like he’s a few houses down. Even when they play loud music, it’s muffled if it comes through the noise cancellation barrier. The NC even blocks out any machine drone nearby; I can’t hear my fans, A/C, fridge or the pool pump. It’s honestly eerie but that silence is golden.I don’t know if this is due to a software update or I just haven’t explored the app update enough but it seems like when you pair to two devices at once, you have to choose a device to hear using the app, you can’t stream both.I prefer having physical buttons on the headphones but the pricier versions of Sony’s line use touch sensitive contextual movements to adjust volume, connect etc. I like that a NC and ambient mode button in on there, so I can switch on the fly if I need to.I like the fake leather plush on the main part of the band and on the ear cups but I am not sure how long that will hold up, it seems very delicate. However it is pleasant to touch. These stay comfortable on me for about an hour. The only reason I really take them off is because my ears get hot and sweaty. These really are lightweight (part of my reason picking them over cheaper competitors).The only problem I had pairing was initial setup but that was really my bad because I use a dongle to get bluetooth on my computer and the driver wasn’t properly installed. So be aware if you have a bluetooth dongle for connectivity that it has to have the proper latest driver installed or else it will just not pair.THE REASON I RATE THIS FOUR INSTEAD OF FIVEYo, person at Sony forced to read these for a living, PLEASE pass this along. THE CHARGING CABLE. Bruh. BRuH! Look I get it I appreciate shorter cables, I am not charging things in another room or something, and I like to save space when I travel with a bunch of cables. But this short cable doesn’t work on any of my pc’s usb ports so I have to plug it into an adapter. The adapter brick is plugged into an extension cord on the floor, which means I can’t put the headphones on my shelf at the same time, it doesn’t reach. So I have to put the extension cord up on the shelf or put my headphones on the floor. For someone directly charging from a wall outlet, your headphones are gonna dangle half on the floor, half in the air. Even when I get the extension cord up on my shelf for charging, there is still not enough room for the headphones to lie flat if the adapter faces up. My workaround is that I rest the headphones on a holder on my desk and I can pull that down closer to the floor when I need to charge. BUT I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO LIVE THAT LYFE. I should be able to just plug it into my pc and be able to put it safely on top of the PC or on a nearby surface, my choice, no major distance consideration to prohibit the safe placement. I really feel yall should send this with one small cable and one long one. Because the small is useful if someone uses a laptop or has a usb hub on their desk.

    Was impressed….Not so much anymore.

    Update 3/9……so first I’m going to say that I bought these with my own money before any reviews were out. Didn’t realize they were a vine product. After a few weeks of use the padding has relaxed enough so that I can feel the drivers poking my ears. I wear my headphones around 4 hours a day on weekdays and 8-10 hours on each weekend day. As stated earlier I have a smaller than average head, and my ears do not stick out. I can usually adjust the cups to be lower, but I don’t like them riding my jawbone.I would’ve have overlooked that because they do sound good, however they are now randomly disconnecting. I use them for YouTube and I’m literally 18 inches away and they disconnect. I check through the app and it shows a connection failure. If I pause a video, again, they show connected, but the sound comes out of my iPad. When I check the app it tells me there is a connection failure and to restart. While the sound is good I don’t think I care to restart my headphones every 10 minutes. Maybe they don’t like Apple devices? I’m not sure….I originally bought the xm5’s. I finally got them last week only to find they were quite oversized for my smaller than average head. The weight of them made matters worse as every time I looked down they flopped forward. I had to return them.I am not one of those fancy audio people but I know what I like. My previous headphone were the solo pro 3’s and I do enjoy them. What I don’t like is the pain my ears experience after about an hour of having them on.I wanted over the ear headphones and everything I read and all the videos I watched pointed me to the xm5’s which ended sadly. I searched Amazon and saw these were a new model. Looked up what little I could find online about them and the consensus was these were the cheap version of the xm5’s. Yeah, I’m sold so I got them.Build: They are cheaper feeling, not as bad as the 510’s, but nowhere near the xm5’s workmanship. But they are also not breaking the bank (as bad anyways, it still shocks me to see what headphones are going for nowadays). The sliding part is plastic reinforced by metal. I’ll be honest….I am wondering how they will hold up.Comfort:Excellent. These are super light. I don’t feel them resting on the crown of my head at all. There is no clamping on or around my ears. But the are secure on my head. The padding around the ear cups is decent and the cups are deep so most will not have their ears touching the speakers.Bells and whistles: these are old school, they have buttons…no swipe features at all. I like that because in my week of using the xm5’s I discovered quickly that volume adjustment was hit or miss with response time. It might be that my hands are always cold, but in 6 hours of wearing these I have already mastered the buttons. They are very well placed and very responsive.App: They are part of the Sony Headphone app. You get an equalizer and other customizable features including the ability to connect to two devices at the same time and it works great as I use the headphones for watching music videos on YouTube and Netflix. I use my phone to adjust the equalizer for the music playing on my iPad.Another feature on the app is you can set the headphones to shut off when not in use. I was excited about the auto shutoff feature. Not so much now. It is not sensor based nor is it based on when you device’s screen shuts down. It is based on when you turn of Bluetooth. This makes it worthless to me and maybe a lot of us who do not ever turn Bluetooth off. I think it could have been done better.Noise cancelling:I’m going to call this adequate. With my Beats Solo pro with ANC I can’t hear anything. Not even someone yelling. These will drown out the hum of a fan pretty well, but they let in a lot of ambient noise (like my husband coughing in the next room right now!). Even the xm5’s were not as good as the Beats. But the on ear style of the Beats may have something to do with that. So I’ll stick to the xm5’s comparison. I also want to say that there are supposedly 3 modes…noise cancelling, ambient and off. I have not noticed any difference between ambient and noise cancelling. There is no voice prompt to let you know which setting you are in. I will play some more to see if I’m missing a setting in the app and if something changes I’ll edit my review.Sound quality: (of course this is subjective to each person) Excellent out of the box and I could not say that about the xm5’s. My first mission was to find the equalizer when I took them out of the box and tried them. Not so with these. The sound was nice. I still tweaked it but if I wasn’t able to change it a bit, I would still be happy.Other:They do not come with a case. They do not fold. They come with an aux cord and charging cable, no charging block.Final thoughts: This is my fourth pair of headphones in a month. I was willing to drop over 300 bucks on a pair. And I didn’t like any of them. Most important to me is fit and sound. Most were severely lacking in sound quality. These are not. And they were cheaper.I am most disappointed in the build quality. I think they should’ve done better. To me $150 is alot of money to spend on headphones that feel this plasticy. And if they crack after 6 months I’ll be upset. I’m not expecting $350 quality, but better. These are not too much better than the 510’s when they should’ve been a little less than the 910’s. They are far less quality than the 910’s. Maybe I’m asking too much after coming from the Solo 3 pros and xm5’s which both have a superb build.BUT…..they make up for it in having great sound that you can totally adjust to your liking. They are comparable to the xm5’s in sound. And far superior I feel to the 910’s which just sound overly undefined bass. And the comfort!! It’s spot on.These are the best out there in terms of sound and app capabilities.

    Holds a charge, great for noise cancelling, would buy again

    I bought these on a whim because they were on sale. I am currently at a friends house working and they are also working. I was using my first gen AirPods, but could hear everything they were doing and saying in their meetings. I was distracted, so I grabbed these instead. Now I can’t hear anything they are doing but can instead fully focus on what I’m doing. These are great for the price, and would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable set of noise cancelling headphones!

    Bought as a gift for my wife and she loves it!

    My wife travels for work a lot so I wanted to get her a solid, easy to use and great sounding pair of headphones. She loves them! Works great with her iPhone, iPad and Laptop over Bluetooth. The sound canceling drowns out most noise on the airplane and the battery lasts a long time. She rarely has good luck with wireless headphones but she loves these. So much so that I’m going to order a pair for myself!

    Great headphones for the price.

    I have had these headphones for a few months now, and they work great. The sound is awesome, and they feel very sturdy and secure on your head. I don’t use them when I workout, so I’m not sure how great they would stay on your head for that, but walking around and doing things around the house I have had no issues. I’m not sure the maximum range, but I have been able to walk all around my house while leaving my phone in a different room and have no problems disconnecting. My favorite aspect about these headphones is that they hold a charge for so long. I use them frequently and only charge them about once every other week, and they still never get below 50% charge.My only negative review is that after a few hours of wearing them (I’m a student, so I frequently wear them for 4-5 hours at a time), they do start to hurt your ears. These are the first pair of over the hear headphones I’ve owned, so I’m not sure if that is common with any over the ear headphones, but just be aware.Overall, I’m not sure you can find a better pair of headphones for a cheaper price. I really enjoy them.

    Not 100% NC but good for the price!

    I didn’t feel like dropping almost $300 on some headphones right now and these are pretty affordable.I’m not a sound expert btw. I just needed good headphones that are portable and comfortable.Pros:▪︎ The noise canceling is pretty good for what its worth. Its not 100% but it diminishes a lot of outside noise, which is what I wanted. I also like that you can adjust the sound based on what your listening to.▪︎ Stays charged for so long. I used it for 3 hours while cleaning and it only dropped to 97%. I like that it comes with an additional audio cord so you can plug it in and listen too.▪︎ Very light and comfortable. They don’t give me a headache from wearing them for an extended amount of time.Cons:▪︎ The connectivity, it works but sometimes its unresponsive. Which seems to be a problem other people have had too. (Ex. My music wouldn’t pause after pressing the button multiple times, had to reconnect them to work)▪︎ The app. Sometimes it crashes or freezes. Which isn’t about the headphones themselves.Overall a really good purchase.

    Price! Price price

    I loved the fact that they were on sale for $101. On the upside, these headphones sounded very clear and has an equalizer to adjust to my style. The only downside to these headphones are that it doesn’t come with a case (I ordered one for $20 on Amazon) to protect it when not in use.

    Perfect, but sound leaking is annoying

    They’re really loud and comfortable but if the volume is too high, the sound begins to leak. Still really like them though 🙂

    Good for the price

    Good value for the price. But the headphones are only truly noise cancelling if the volume is all the way up which isn’t always suitable. I also don’t like that it automatically changes from noise cancelling to ambient sound I don’t know how to get rid of that in the app. It’s also nice that it comes with an app. The sound is great I do just wish that the noise cancelling was better but for the price I can’t be too mad. If you can afford the more expensive ones I’d go for those. But these work on a budget as long as you’re prepared for them to not be completely noise cancelling.

    just one teeny tiny issue

    sounds amazing and does start to leak some around when the music is almost turned up but theres no need to turn it much because it gets in my opinion too loud (coming from someone who loves very loud music) . i love these so much and they’re comfy and cute. quality is great, sound is clear and i honestly like these more than my beats earbuds (they’re super amazing). only thing i dont like is the leaking but honestly it barely bothers me. the battery life on these are INSAAAANNNEEEEEE. thes are so worth it

    I like them a lot

    My wife got them for me as a birthday/Christmas gift. I’ve been using them quite a bit since then in both wired and wireless configuration and they sound pretty good. Battery life is good and I like the fact that if you use the cable, the battery is not used. Granted the noise cancellation doesn’t work when used with the cable and the power off, but I can certainly live with that.

    These are amazing!!!

    Got these for myself on Christmas and they are amazing!!! I feel the noise cancelling is better than my $250 airpod pros. The battery quality is also amazing, it could be over a week before I have to charge them again.

    Good for budget

    Honestly I’m a guy that loves listening to music and I would only get these if I’m tight in money. To get the best out of these, I would use the app to get the right sound

    Very good

    What I love is that the battery live lasts weeks I didn’t charge mine for about 2 weeks but since I only used it for gym but it has very good noise cancellation and very good sound quality.

    Very affordable!

    So so perfect! I got the black color and it was perfect! I have been wanting headphones for so long but couldn’t make up my mind unless I saw this. The price was just perfect. The battery life is very long and noise collection is good too.
