“good” (1.5)

“Likes: looks very high-quality; good to very good sound at high volume levels. Dislikes: barely allows any air to come into contact with the ears; sits loosely as its fit is not very tight.”

“very good” (75 out of 100 points)

Value for money: “satisfactory”, “Test Winner”

“This Sony model is loud and extremely dynamic. Its bass sounds defined and deep (but not overblown) whilst the highs are wonderfully transparent.”

Magazine 5/2011
Single test
Sound verdict: 80 points

Value for money: “very good”

“... Its homogeneous, heavy bass and beautifully defined music playback will make you certain you’ve made the right investment with every minute that you spend using it (be it at home or on the go). And the joy could last for quite some time; its material composition and build quality are outstanding and promise to ensure these headphones a long life.”
