If your a purist and want a neutral and balance music like a studio quality sound, go get soundmagic's other variant the E10c . But if your on a wireless headphone, I highly suggest the Sony MDR 1000X.

whats the Best brand/model for earphone/headphones regardless of price?

Trump fan 1980, 20 Jun 2017 Good question. I like both personally.Yep. But I meant what is the best Brand

CAMAROMANIAC3, 19 Jun 2017Ya they have different preferences. But with a neutral sounding ... moreThat's the opinion of the reviewer so don't judge them, same as yours, we have different tastes in sound that's why one of his suggestion is to look somewhere else if you have the same taste as him. Why is it that some peolpe can't understand the the situation. I like sony products and I'm a fan of sony but I have to respect the opinion of the reviewer.

Kinda honest review. Haha. And its my first time reading a headphone review.

Why would they give more positive reviews for their devices if THEY feel differently about them than others? It's their opinion. They also disliked my previous phones somewhat and I liked those. But the HTC' One M8 which this site really liked, I didn't like it and sold it after a year.

"People with better taste in sound will have to look elsewhere".

well, i have the XB950BT. i like bass sound... so i have bad taste in sound -_-

Sony Rocks on there wireless head sets!!

Josephkarthic, 19 Jun 2017Im not a basshead but i like the sub bass lingering on any song,... moreDidn't notice they released this. Apparently it can go from no bass to Beats level bass without sacrificing highs and mids. Didn't try it yet. Should be good.­-headphones-around-ear-hd-630vb

And look into their HD series if you want pure sound. Do note, the HD 5##+ models are all open back.

Regardless, I bought the beats earphones (corded). I didn't like them and liquidated them. Then I checked out the first beats studio (corded) headphones. I definitely was impressed.

This review is very contrasting from other reviews. No. Actually, this site has always been very cold to Sony and has lots of disadvantages to discuss rather than it advantages compared to other sites/reviewers.

Regardless, I enjoyed them with several different types of music. I am happy that GSM Arena took time out to provide information about this model. In the future, they may review other headphones for us. I just picked up a pair of AKG tuned Galaxy S8 earphones. Despite primarily bad user reviews on Amazon (of which were in short supply last time I checked about a week ago), I like them, and recommend them. Cheers.
