Sony MDR-100AAP review


A respectable offering from Sony, but these headphones can be bettered for the money...

Open soundstage ; Plenty of detail ; Lightweight and fold away tidily ; Easily listenable balance

Lacks expression and punch ; Competitors time better ; Rolled off treble

Sony’s h.ear ons are a respectable pair of on-ear headphones, but we want for for our £150

Sony H.ear On review


You can get Sony's H.ear On headphone ($200, ‎£150, AU$300) in standard "charcoal" black, but what makes it stand out is the vibrant, eye-catching colors it comes in, including cinnabar red, lime yellow, Bordeaux pink or the viridian blue pictured...

The Sony H.ear On MDR-100A is a stylish-looking over-ear headphone that comes in eye-catching colors and is very comfortable to wear. It delivers pleasant, detailed sound, and folds up into an included protective carrying pouch.

Finish can get scratched if dinged, which tarnishes the headphone's attractive look; a little pricey at $200; falls short of being a true "high-fidelity" headphone.

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 MDR-100AAP h.ear review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony MDR-100AP h.ear headphones are a straightforward pair of over-ear headphones, lacking any thrills such as noise cancelling and wireless features. They are available in a wide range of colours, though. Will these headphones brighten your mood?...

Sony h.ear on MDR-100AAP headphones review


The Sony h.ear on MDR-100AAP is the latest pair of earphones from Japanese giant Sony, and despite the absurd name they're actually quite good. We've been using a pair to find out exactly how good - read on to find out how we got on.

Costing around £150, the h.ear on MDR-100AAP provide a well-made, bold and decent-sounding package. They're also incredibly comfortable, and we were able to wear them for hours on end without any discomfort

We liked the black h.ear on MDR-100AAP headphones, but some of the other colours are garish to say the least - the hot pink model is a hot pink mess - it's genuinely revolting! They're also not the best headphones out there when it comes to noise...

In short though, despite the ridiculous name and some iffy colour choices, the h.ear on MDR-100AAP offer up a superb sound, a comfortable listening experience and they're well worth a look - we can't imagine regretting buying a pair.

nice colors!


First of all, the colors are gorgeous. I get so many compliments just for it's look! It rests comfortably around the ears. It is light weighted. Unfortunately, since I have a curly big hair, it pulls out my hair when I remove them! Overall, the sound...

h.ear great sound!


These are the h.ear on headphones that are due to be released for sale this weekend. Honestly, I've never had a pair of headphones that have actually fit my head before, yet these do (without falling off). The noise cancelling is literally, deaf to...

Comfy Fit


Bought this initially to use with my Sony Reciever Amp. However, the quality of sound was not as good as I had hoped.
