Sony MDR-1A

Sony's latest addition to the MDR lineup is a thoughtfully designed, exceedingly comfortable headphone pair made with luxurious materials. At $299.99, the MDR-1A isn't cheap, and given the lack of Bluetooth or noise-canceling circuitry, that price...

Sony MDR-Z7

Sony continues to release lots of new products bearing the “HI-Res Audio” logo. This review focuses on three of these products - the Sony MDR-Z7 Headphones, the Sony PHA-3 battery powered DAC/headphone amp and the Kimber Kable MUC-B20BL1 balanced...

Sony MDR-10RBT

The Sony MDR-10RBT gets you about 75 percent of the way to the Beats Studio Wireless for a lot less money.

Sony MDR-1A

We've been testing headphones back-to-back for a number of weeks and have found the Sony MDR-1A to be the most immediately comfortable and gratifying over-ears straight out of the box.

Sony MDR-XB950BT

Amazing quality sound, and premium bass. It can sync with pretty much any smart phone, very comfortable as well.

Some days you want to throw open the windows, crank up your stereo and rattle the walls with your favorite music. Other times, you want to drift off into your own little sonisphere, totally walled off from the rest of the world. The most crucial...

Sony MDR-HW700DS

Although expensive, we rate the Sony MDR-HW700DS wireless surround headphones as a compelling alternative to a physical multichannel speaker setup, and they're a great practical solution when it's just not possible to crank things up.

Sony MDR-1R

Sony's forays into headphones of late have often been focused on boosted bass, or even co-branding with television shows (like the X Factor), so it's refreshing to see a no-nonsense, high quality pair like the MDR-1R. At $299.99 (direct), it's priced...

Sony MDR-10RNC

The only issue we really had with the Sony MDR1-RNC, the noise-cancelling headphones we reviewed earlier in 2013, was the extremely high price. Comparable-quality headphones had far lower prices, but the MDR1-RNC was a winner in every other regard....

Sony MDR-ZX770BNL Blau

The headphones have excellent sound quality and are fairly easy to synch with blue tooth devices. The noise cancelling componet is not as good as some others I have owned.

Sony MDR7506 Professional Headphones

You don't have to spend a lot to get great headphones. We tested six full-size models that each cost less than $100 (one of them significantly less), and we came away impressed by what you can get.

Sony MDR-ZX110

These are great headphones that I purchased for my 13 year old son who uses them for his 3DS and uses them just about everyday. They fold flat at the ear part. Very good deal for under $20.00.

These earbuds are a great addition for the price! I would recommend them. I lose or break them too often to spend more.

Sony - 4GB* Wearable Sports MP3 Player - Blue NWZW273SBLUE

I swim 4 to 5 days out the week and I always wear my headphones! I love them, but I wish they were louder for me at least. I like loud music it gives me more motivation but they are great!

Sony MDR-ZX110NC

I like the headphone with valued price. The sound quality is great when the noise cancellation is on. The volumne is higher when the switch is on and bass, mid and high are pretty clear. Of course, it is no better than the Bose Q25. The arm is plastic...

Sony - Wireless Earbud Headphones - Black MDRAS600BT/B

Pretty good sound. The only drawbacks is that because it does make a seal in your ear, you can hear your footsteps loud and clear. This is OK. The controls for volume, pause, next track, etc. are a little goofy and I usually end up just using my phone....

Sony MDRRF985RK Wireless RF Headphones (Black)

Wonderful is how I'd describe the wireless headphone! Hubby can enjoy his tv anytime & I can do my thing. It brought peace back into our home for which I am grateful!!!!!

The world of noise-canceling headphones is littered with Bose wannabes, so it's refreshing to see a pair that has its own look. The Sony MDR1-RNC offers solid noise cancellation and excellent audio performance, but its $499.99 (direct) price is tough...
