What Do We like
Extra Bass Technology
This headset is made for mainly EDM lovers, which means Electronic Dance Music. It is a new form of music one can argue. The enhanced extra bass technology lets you enjoy heavy bass. It amplifies your listening experience immensely.
Smart Key App
This is an interesting addition to this headphone. The Smart Key App lets you personalize your headset according to you. You can configure your mic button to function as volume control or track changing controls. All you need to do is install the application on your smartphone.
The designing of this headphone is very sleek. It allows you to lay your headsets flat, adjust the headband a bit so you can carry it easily while traveling. It takes very little space to store and makes it look more stylish.
What We Don’t Like
The mic quality is decent to have a conversation but could’ve been one of the best if this headset had a noise cancellation feature too. Not having it, makes the other sounds hearable to the person you’re talking to. Which is not so decent.
These Sony MDR headphones are a decent product. It gives you quality sound, extra heavy bass. Portable so you can store and carry it easily. The cushioned pads are very comfortable.
Noise cancellation is one of the cons, but only if you intend to use this headset for conversations. If you’re gonna listen to music only and very less calling, then this is the right fit.
