Sony MDR-XB650BT

The Sony MDR-XB650BT is marketed as an "extra bass" headphone pair, and that's exactly what you get—along with a very comfy build. Booming bass fiends will absolutely love these while purists (or even those who really like bass but also want some...

Sony MDR-1A

The supercomfortable Sony MDR-1A does a good job balancing clarity with just enough of laid-backness to make it a very versatile headphone that's well worth considering if you're looking for a full-size headphone in the $250-$300 range.

Sony MDR-100AAP

While it would stand out from the competition more if it cost a little less, the Sony H.ear On MDR-100A is a likable over-ear headphone that's comfortable, sounds good, and is attractively designed.

Sony PlayStation Platinum Wireless

Sony's Platinum Wireless headset sounds great and offers some slick PS4-specific features, but it's so uncomfortable, we couldn't keep it on.

Sony MDR-XB950N1

Sony's MDR-XB950N1 headphones deliver a sound signature that's less crisp and bright than many we test, but avoid sounding muddy when the bass is tamped down. When the effect is engaged, all bets are off. The noise cancellation is quite good for this...

Sony Xperia Ear

I was excited about the Xperia Ear and what it promised until I realized that, as it stands, the device does nothing different from Siri or Google over wired earbuds. In particular, the fact that it requires you to use your hand and press a button to...
