Features we love

On ear headphones

These on-ear headphones offer an immersive audio experience. They’re specifically designed to sit directly on your ears and, thanks to specially sculpted cushions, they’re super-comfortable so you can relax and enjoy your music for as long as you like.

Classic wired connection

These headphones use a classic wired connection with a 3.5mm jack to plug into your phone or tablet. With this connection information can flow superfast, producing a better audio quality, making your favourite tracks sound flawless. Compared to wireless headphones, these will be more useful in areas of high interference, such as hospitals or offices, as other signals won’t disrupt the connection. Also, wired headphones don’t require batteries, so they’ll never run out of charge.

Noise isolating design

Noise-isolating headphones use a sophisticated design to ensure that you get the best audio quality. Thanks to a unique mix of material, all background noise is blocked out, meaning you can listen to music without interruption. So whether you’re in a crowded space or on busy public transport, you’ll be able to hear every note and beat and get totally lost in the music.

Sony Headphones - they're okay

3/5
Build quality and sound quality are acceptable for the price. The cable and 3.5mm plug are reassuringly robust. As the product description suggests, the bass is striking, but the overall sound is rather 'wooden': no amount of adjustment of the equaliser on my computer or phone enables me to achieve the sound I'm used to. The adjustable band enables a good, comfortable fit over the head, however, the ear pads are a bit firm, meaning that they don't make the best contact on the ears. Overall though, considering the price, I'm pleased with them.

Worth for the price

4/5
Due to metal bar on the top, headphone slips from the head due to wait, otherwise product is okay. I can manage this issue if I tight a bit more but that makes little uncomfortable for using longer time. Overall the product is good in quality.
