Bought these for work. I operate heavy equipment, so lots of very loud background noise, and with this noise cancelling turned out, it does a very good on cancelling the noise for how loud the machine is. We are required to hearing protection. I may upgrade to the 910, or even xm4 one day, but on sale for 99 dollars canadian. You can't go wrong. They worked great in the gym, did not hear a single thing when the NC is on! Gets a little warm, but just take em off for certain workouts to keep your ears cool.

Pros

  • Comfy
  • Great sound
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Not top of the line, but still good

Decepción total

A simple vista se ven de lo mejor, lees sus especificaciones y piensas que son unos muy buenos audífonos, pero una vez que los tienes en tus pasos empiezas a decepcionarte, los plásticos son de lo peor, el sonido es plano en su totalidad, la cancelación de ruido es demasiado chafa, y lo peor es que a diferencia del modelo anterior este modelo no es compatible con la app de Sony, lo que significa que no contamos con ecualizador de audio nativo, lo cual le vendría muy bien si lo tuviera, ya que se podría solucionar el problema del audio plano.
