Enjoy your favourite music free of distractions with wireless noise cancelling headphones. Stay on the move with hands free calling and 35 hours of wireless playback on a single charge, or up to 50 hours of playback with wired listening using the supplied cable. Optimize noise cancellation or connect to your smartphones voice assistant at the push of a button. Neodymium Magnet Cord Length: Approx. 3.94 ft (supplied headphone cable); Frequency Response: 7 Hz–20,000 Hz; NFC: Yes; Cord Type: Detachable Single sided type; Volume Sensor: Yes. Battery Life (Waiting Time) : Max 200 hrs (BT: ON/Noise Cancelling: OFF) Few easy troubleshooting steps for better experience: Make sure that the noise canceling function is turned on (the indicator (green) next to the NC button lights up). Adjust the earpad position to fit your ears. The noise canceling function is effective in low frequency ranges such as airplanes, trains, offices, near air-conditioning, and is not as effective for higher frequencies, such as human voices. Initializing the headset to restore factory settings Disconnect the micro-USB cable, turn off the headset, then press and hold the button and button simultaneously for more than 7 seconds. The indicator (blue) flashes 4 times ( ), and the settings such as the volume adjustment are reset to the factory settings. This operation resets volume settings, etc., and deletes all pairing information. In this case, delete the pairing information of the headset from the Bluetooth device, and then pair them again. If the headset does not operate correctly even after initializing, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I use them with my phone and even though some people complain about the app I believe that they are critical to the experience. After a few minutes tweaking it, I got my perfect sound.
Like I said before, I tested a few others, including the most expensive Sony and a few others but this one was the right one for me.
You might have a different taste or you might listen to different genres and picking headphones is just a very subjective experience but I could not be happier. Since I got them they are my first option and I feel a little disappointment with the rest of my collection right now.
About the sound:
Clear, they are amazingly clear. If you like to hear all the instruments you are going to enjoy them.
Space, they have enough spacious to feel the separation and the soundstage is pretty good for the price
Bass, if you like it, they have it.
Comfort: very very comfortable. They are light and you might forget that you are wearing them.
Pads: made of plastic. I start sweating after an hour.
Last thing, you are always going to find good options and certainly more expensive headphones but you should try these and not because they are cheaper but because they are really good.

Fit – comfortable and lightweight but not appropriate for people with large ears, and the faux pu leather ear cushions do get a bit warm. I’ve worn these outside while I’m doing chores and they can get a bit sweaty and uncomfortable – that said cutting the grass with these on is a pleasant experience – does a good job of blocking out the sound of the mower and lets me really focus on the music. Again – good job of blocking, but not great. And I did find myself eventually taking them off to allow my ears to get some fresh air and cool off. Criticism – not sure, I’d expect this of other similar style ear phones.
Build Quality – decent but largely plastic and not as robust as some other similarly styled headphones, but also notably lighter.
Portability – full swivel so they can be laid flat to slip in your bag, but did not come with a hard case (which would have been a nice touch, but isn’t necessary)
Battery Power – Up to 35 hours with a full charge that takes about 7 hours via a micro USB. Would have been nice if they used a C type but at-least it’s not proprietary connection (worst) and we all micro usb cables lying around. That said, it does have quick charging – 10 minutes of charge will give you about 60 minutes of playback – this seemed pretty accurate in my experiences. You can also extend your listening by plugging in with supplied cable.
Hands Free Calls – actually worked reasonably well. I’ve got a $200 Plantronics headset that’s amazing, absolutely amazing, so that the caller only hears my voice and nothing else. So how did these earphones compare? They don’t, but they did an ok job in a quiet environment – the caller could hear me clearly as could I them. In a louder environment, the caller was able to hear the background noise. Really isn’t surprising, and they performed as well as I’d expect. I must say that it’s still a very handy feature – I really liked being able to answer my phone via the headset while I was doing chores, particularly when I was mowing the lawn. Unfortunately, I stopped the mower and didn’t think to test it with the mower on, but I expect that wouldn’t have worked for the caller.
Bluetooth – version 4.1 with 10 meter line of sight range, and has NFC pairing which is convenient.
Controls – well laid out, responsive and have a nice tactile feel (much nicer that the 1000MX2).
Sound quality - Warm and Balanced – and provided pleasant listening experience which was noticeably improved when plugged in. Still good via Bluetooth but the frequency response on the lower end was better plugged in. Now when assessing sound, we have to keep in mind the price. I’m not going to compare these to a pair of $3000 or a pair of $50. I’m assessing the sound quality in line with a $200-$250 headphones. Same goes for things like bass response – these things don’t have 70mm Drivers in them, they have standard 40 mm Neodynium domes – so keep that in mind (again $3000 vs $220). Frequency response is listed at 20hz-20,000 hz via Bluetooth and 7hz-20,000hz plugged in. In testing I did notice the bass response was noticeably better when plugged. Specs also indicate 97 db/mW sensitive via Bluetooth versus 98 db/mW plugged in. Now have I listened to better sound headphones – yes absolutely, but these were pretty good – warm and balanced sound but I wouldn't say they were dynamic - just didn't have the range to them, but still a good listen, just not great. Question is, can you buy a better sounding headset for $220? Yes you can, but not with active Noise cancellation. So is it worth it? Lets talk about it’s Noise cancellation abilities.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)– Active noise cancellation is only really good for canceling constant environmental noise – such as HVAC hums, fans, airplane engine, train, road and wind noise, etc.. If you want to cancel out people talking, etc, you’d be better going with a passive solution such as high-end earbuds that completely block your ear canal. So how does the 700’s active noise cancellation perform? In a word – ‘ok’ It’s not bad, but not great. I’ve got a pair of Sony’s 1000XM2 and their noise cancellation is about twice as good, but they also cost twice as much. So how’d the 700’s do? Again, just ok. It did a decent job of eliminating some fairly stand environmental noises, which defiantly allowed me to focus in on my music more. Basically cut the noise in half, whereas the 1000’s would virtually illuminated it. So, I’ve got mixed feeling. This headset sort of represents a mixed bag to me – good sound and ok noise cancellation – or you could spend the same money and get something that sounds better for the same price that doesn’t have noise cancellation, or you could up your budget and get something that is better in both departments like the 1000xm2 – twice the noise cancellation and better frequency response 4-40K Hz
Conclusion – Nice entry level ANC headphones – ANC defiantly made a difference, but if you’re really looking for good ANC performance you’d be better to up your budget to the $400 range and consider Sony’s 1000MX2. On the other hand, if you’re on a budget and looking for something to take the edge off that train’s or airplane’s engine hum than these are defiantly worth considering, and provided a warm balanced listening experience. If you’re looking for more dynamic sound experience than you’d be best to look at another none ANC headset, or stepping up your budget. So, in a nutshell, these are good ‘budget’ ANC headphones that provide a pleasant listening experience.
- La cancelación de ruido es muy eficiente
- La duración de la batería es sorpendente (35 horas!), incluso lo puedes dejar prendido permanentemente y no se descargan si no los usas.
- La aplicación de Android dá muy buena información y control. Te muestra el estado de la batría y controlas la cancelación de ruido, efectos y ecualización.
- El sello de goma no está bien diseñado, es sumamente cómodo pero con solo voltear la cabeza noto que se pierde el aislamiento con lo que se mete ruido y se pierden los graves. Nunca me había pasado antes en ninguna marca. Solo funciona como se espera si te quedas muy quieto, de lo contrario el sonido está constantemente variando. Muy molesto, y eso que tengo cabello corto que no interfiere.
- Todos los beneficios de la aplicación de android se pierden si lo uso con mi laptop, con lo que la experiencia es diferente en cada dispositivo.
- Puerto de carga todavía es micro-USB, a estas alturas ya debería tener USB-C.
My review scores:
NFC AND Bluetooth connectivity:5/5
I highly recommend this product when you are planning to buy wireless headset at a budget of 10k to 15k
- amazing battery life: I think "I should charge these" long before they die
- COMFORTABLE. Not overly hot during long hours of listening, and good ear cups for large ears like mine
- excellent controls
- good if subtle noise cancellation ... Expected based on research before buying. Good for low/droning tones which suits my usage
Occasional Bluetooth interruption in high-interference areas (better in this regard than other BT headphones I own)
Cons: "meh" sound if used passively (turned off & connected with a cable). Not much of a con, since the battery life is so excellent. Can be "on" while used with a cable, e.g. with an Xbox controller
