What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony MDR-1000X Bluetooth stereo headphone - Gray beige
  • At first glance they are very sturdy and well made
  • Comfortable to wear. Nicely built.
  • Before I bought it I had seen the review saying it's too small, but actually it's pretty nice fitting my head, and there is still space to get tighter or looser! So for most of the people the size is not a problem I think.
  • It was simply too tight and I was unable to make it fit comfortably. The band extension did not allow me to lower the "cans" enough to cover my ears properly
Sony WH-1000XM2 Over Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with Case - Gold
  • They are comfy to wear for hours, maybe 5-6, then my ears got a little sensitive.
  • Light weight and definitely more comfortable for long periods
  • They are comfortable, good weight, biuld quality
  • Comfort is great, sound is good, bulky and weight is decent.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-1000X Bluetooth stereo headphone - Gray beige
  • I was also impressed by the noise cancelling. I often sleep with my headphones on and these did a fantastic job blocking noise and letting me doze.
  • Battery Life is amazing. I've charged it only a handful of times in the last year my guess would be 30 hrs of play time
  • Noise canceling, If you want to feel isolated from the world these headphones will do it
  • Being able to turn the noise canceling off is very nice
  • Aux Cable is very nice, but if you want to use the mic while it's plugged in not going to happen it doesn't work because of the type of Aux cord that comes with the headphones doesn't support a mic.
  • I've noticed other types of headphones have a better sound than the MDR-1000X while using Bluetooth
Sony WH-1000XM2 Over Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with Case - Gold
  • The ability to control the songlist by “swiping” on the earpad is phenomenal. It is SO much easier than trying to push tiny buttons on your earphones
  • The ability to quickly turn off the sound canceling by cupping your hand over the earpad is very useful.
  • They fold much much flatter than my Bose for storage and come with a nice flat zippered case.
  • The Connect App was easy to install and is actually useful, you can toggle how much noise canceling you want and how much you want to hear what is going on in your surroundings.
  • The battery does actually last about 30 hours, I set a timer every time I put them on, used the noise canceling and they lasted about 25 hours on one charge and 27 and 29 hours for the other two
  • Cannot control with the swipe when on the cord.
  • When they are charging you cannot use them.
  • They do feel hot to wear after a while. Not comfortable on hot days. Bose may be a better fit there.
  • These cans do tend to get hot and are not quite as comfortable as Bose for longer duration's
