Sony has been one of the best headphone companies and while reviewing these headphones it reminded me of the times when I blindly bought any sony headphones since I was a loyal customer and trusted their products. The Sony Extra Bass Bluetooth headphones are a good choice for sports Bluetooth headphones as well and if you want to get one of these then do take a look at the detailed review-
Design and Build Quality
The headphones have a simple overall look but the design is such that the earbuds fit perfectly on your ear. The headphones have most of the buttons on the earbuds itself so that might be a little irritating when you want to take calls as you might confuse with the buttons on the earbuds.
The build quality on the headphones are pretty good and there are no drawbacks when it comes to this feature of the headphones. The headphones have an amazing overall build quality and the design is simple and the build quality is premium which means that the headphones are going to be durable and can last you really long.
The sound quality on these headphones is amazing for the price. These Sony headphones have a better sound quality than some of the sports headphones that come at a price point of around $150. The highs are perfect and the lows are clear and crisp without being too muffled giving a pretty good audio experience.
The headphones do not come with an inline mic rather they have buttons on the earbuds which can be used to control volume and take up calls. The best feature of these headphones includes the fact that they have a pretty good network and you are not going to face any kind of voice breaking if you are in the network range of the headphones.
Most of the Bluetooth headphones do sometimes give in to the breaking of voice due to bad network connectivity but the Sony headphones are pretty good in that aspect.
The comfort on these headphones are pretty good and they are going to stay put even during extensive exercise sessions. These headphones are really comfortable and the wires are really comfortable to wear and you do not realize that they even exist at the back of your neck.
The headphones have different sizes of the ear tips which helps you get the perfect fit enabling perfect noise cancellation on these headphones when you are listening to music.
The headphones are sweat and water resistant which means you can go out for your run or any other practice sessions at any kind of weather that you like. The headphones come with an IPX4 rating which means that they are splash proof and not completely waterproof.
You can get your headphones damage free from a few drops of water fallen over it but you cannot go swimming or drop these headphones in the pool and expect them to be okay. The headphones can last long if you take minimal care of it like keeping it in the dust bag when not in use.
Most of the users have reported that these headphones can easily last for a year and that for any headphone is a pretty good life. You can even stretch it up to a year and a half or two years totally depending on the level of maintenance.
The battery life on these headphones can last for about 8 hours which is a pretty average battery life and a few minutes of charging can give you like another hour of playback which is pretty good for a sports Bluetooth headphones. Although I do wish that the headphones had a longer battery life but for the price, these headphones are marked it has done pretty well.
The headphones are going to last you all day and 8 hours is pretty much going to keep you covered even for the commute after your workout sessions and maybe a little bit of work and other stuff. Overall these headphones are amazing and let us head over to the final conclusion
Sony was not disappointing with these headphones and they have surely done a pretty good job with these sports Bluetooth headphones. If you want a light and affordable headphones with great sound quality then Sony headphones are the way to go.
These headphones are durable and they can easily last you for quite some time, so if you like the design and not particular about getting headphones with an ear clip like the Powerbeats or a headphone that comes with 13-hour battery life like the JLAB epic 2 then these headphones are surely the way to go.
