Good Sound Quality. Cheap Construction.
Initially, I loved these headphones. The sound was good, the bluetooth worked well and the battery lasted for multiple long flights. I took care of them because of the price (kept them in a cloth bag when not in use and never put weight on them). However, as you can see in the photo, the cheap plastic that holds the sides to the band has broken on me more than once. The first crack was a small one and I was able to fix it with glue. However, just removing these headphones from your head is enough pressure for the plastic to crack and break. Don't waste your money, you will only be let down. I love many Sony products, but this will sway me to look at other brands for my next pair.

The good and bad

Great sound and great noise cancellation. That would give this product 5 stars. In less than one year the plastic holding the swivel ear cup cracked. Its only a matter of time till it falls off and the headphones are not usable. Life span of the headphones less than one year...unacceptable. Was going to get a Sony UHDTV but that is unlikely now.

Hi Makus, we regret that the headphone failed to meet your expectations. We would like to know more about the issue and help you out. Kindly send us an email at socialsupport@am.sony.com. Regards, Erin

Great features but broke in less than a year

Worked great but the whole earpiece broke off at the pivot point

Great sound bad design!

We bought these for my son in May for his birthday, he was afraid to use them as every day ear phones bc they are so expensive. I wanted to show him not to worry, they weren't cheap and SONY, (who make very durable products) they can handle that type of use. So I started using them myself. But a few days later...they broke! Both sides! At the same time in the same spots! Now that I read the reviews I'm not surprised. Everyone seems to have the same issue. Hopefully SONY you guys fix this issue. These earphones are way too expensive for them to snap that easy.

Great sound, terrible durability

I bought these for the bass heavy profile due to the types of music I like to listen to. These were the first headphones I ever bought that cost more than a hundred bucks. And I have to say the sound quality is awesome if you love bass. Not the best for other genres however. But the controls are easy to use. Overall I was very satisfied with my purchase. But then after only a couple of months of regular use the part above the hangars where they swivel just cracked while I was walking through the mall with them on. I felt it loose on my head so I reached up to see what the matter and could feel the break with my hand. I took them off and became heartbroken to find that they had indeed broken. I have had to super glue it back together. Now I am scared to even wear them at all, because I am afraid ether the other side will do the same thing or else my super glue is not going to hold. I am so very disappointed. I have owned a lot of Sony products over the years. Multiple PlayStations, surround sound receivers and speakers. Car stereos, ear buds, jam boxes, you name it and I've probably had it. But this has been the most disappointing experience I have had so far. I just don't think this particular choice of plastic was a very good one. If you buy these, I really don't know what to tell you when it comes to how to handle them. Because I was very delicate with mine. I cannot believe they just popped while they were on my head. That's unbelievable. And I don't consider myself to have a big head. So if you buy these, good luck to you.

Sound quality is good, durability is poor

I bought this headphone a little over a year ago and the parts of the headphone that connect to the ear piece broke on one side first and then the other side recently. With the amount I paid for these, I honestly thought they would and should be more durable.

The sound quality is good tho.

Good Sound Quality - Poor Construction

This is the fourth pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones I have owned in the last 3 years. All pair have broken at the swivel connection. This is the last anything Sony I'm buying. This pair MDR9501NT lasted approximately 4 months; the shortest period of any of the Sonys I have owned.

I take care of my tools and equipment. I use these daily approximately 8-12hrs a day; while driving. I like the noise cancelling tech; but hate that they don't last. At the current price point, I'd have been better off buying expensive aviation headphones; had I only known in the beginning.

Hi Thatguy9999, Thank you for your feedback on your experience with your headphone. We are sorry for any inconvenience you had experienced. Please send us an email at socialsupport@am.sony.com to further assist you. Regards, Erin

Poor joints

I had mine and it broke at the joint and both phones are now loose. Very fragile head gear to ear set joint. Major defect. I am very disappointed.

fragility or durability!

I bought these headphones over two years ago and they were working great for me and I loved the sound, the blue looks, and the comfort. Really sad though that the hinge just broke when I (a careful person) was about to put them on normally and they cracked! I and I bought these thinking they were the best at this price point for me. Was disappointed and hopefully Sony can look into this FOR SURE manufacturing defect. Thank you.

Loved headphones, but broke in less than a month.

I bought them less than a month ago and plastic broke that holds the ear muff. I never traveled with the headphones only used them at my desk. Sound was good for the price, app was easy to use. Loved them till they broke. But cannot recommend them due to lack of durability.
