Sony MDR-AS210

I use these in the gym playing mostly heavy rock and find the sound quality pretty good. I find the design makes them awkward to put on but they do stay put! They do get a bit uncomfortable after a couple of hours though.

Sony MDR-NC750

These are great, can't hear a thing outside not even traffic on a dual carriage way lol, not sure how much of this is down to the noise isolation or the fact that the headphones are pretty loud. Have tried to compare turning isolation off/on with music...

As an avid gym user for more years then I'd like to remember I have used many headphones with these particular ones being one of the best (as in an all rounder). I've tried over head headphones and never got on with them as they are too cumbersome and...

Sony MDR-EX750NA

Solid, if slightly tiring, active noise cancellation earphones.

Sony MDR-AS210AP

The Sony MDR-AS210 in-ear headphones are a very reasonably priced pair that are designed for sports. They clip round your ears securely and come in a range of bright colours. At this price, even average sound quality would represent good value, so we...

The Sony MDR-NC31EM headphones are one of only a handful of in-ear models to feature noise-cancelling technology, although you'll need a Sony smartphone - such as the Xperia Z2 - to take advantage of it. Read our full review to find out if these...

Very good, precisely gives you the best audio quality you can get with in-ear headphones. I recently bought Sony mdr-xb50ap, but when I saw this one coming out, I just had to buy these ones! Even though the previous one I got was so gold, then imagine...

High quality of sound is so big room of sound. But it's a bit difficult because of need to recharge every 8 hours of use. It's my best head phone.

Just about all of the competition costs less. The Bose QuietComfort 15 delivers slightly more effective noise cancellation, but can't match the MDR1-RNC's sonic performance. For the same price as the MDR1-RNC, the Sennheiser MM 550-Xalso delivers...

Sony PlayStation 4 In-Ear

Despite some underwhelming moments, Sony’s new PlayStation Platinum Wireless Headset is a great-sounding, ultra-comfortable pair of cans that can make some of the best looking games sound even better.

Sony MDR-ZX770BT

Performance and Conclusions The MDR-ZX770BT is outfitted with a feature Sony calls "Beat Response Control," which sounds like a gimmicky term for "digital signal processing" (DSP), a way headphones and speakers avoid distortion on bass at high volumes...

Sony MDR-1R

At $300, the Sony MDR-1R delivers powerful audio with focus on overall balance. It could use a bit more high-mid presence, and bass lovers will wish there was more low-end boosting, but the sound signature comes close to the audiophile ideal of flat...
