What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony XB950N1 Extra Bass Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones, Black
  • They are incredibly comfortable, and the weight is light enough that I don't notice them on my head during extended use.
  • The sound is great, they're light, they last a long time, and they have an app which can help you modify the sound stage and the bass.
  • These are ok headphones. They are super light and comfortable.
  • The only negative I can think of is the size, these do stick out on your head!
  • Only downfall is the size. Ya it's huge. The size of the headphones alone are large and the ear pads are massive, they stuck out a lot from the sides of my head.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony XB950N1 Extra Bass Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones, Black
  • The sound quality is good, and the noise cancelling is not bad.
  • I personally love the Sony Headphones Connect App. The app basically allows you to change what your music sounds like.
  • So far I love these headphones. There was an app I had to download to connect them to my Iphone via Bluetooth. Very easy to connect and use.
  • There is a weird bug that happens when you first connect to a bluetooth source, it will connect and sound fine for 3 seconds.
  • They break at the joint that connects the cups to the headband.

What customers say about "Power"
Sony XB950N1 Extra Bass Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones, Black
  • The battery quality is actually pretty good and the sound as is as good as I would expect without breaking the bank.
  • Long battery life. Best amalgamation of buttons for any bluetooth headset I've owned.
  • My favorite aspect is the battery life, it is simply unparalleled, with three 10 hour work days of playtime before reading low battery.
  • The battery life is pretty good at 22 hours, meaning I only need to charge them every 3-4 days.
  • Bad battery life. The headphones will not automatically turn off if you are not listening to any music, thus draining battery.
