Best Buy Review by EDMluva
After searching tirelessly for the perfect set of headphones, I have finally found them. Coming from the MDR-XB500's I didn't think I could find a better pair, but I proved myself wrong. Long story short, they handle every note with precision but don't break the bank! Sony you've made another superb audio product, and these are such a pleasure to listen too and keep a smile on my face! Before you go blow a few hundred or more, check the Sony's out and you can thank me later!
Price:Listed for $199, luckily some idiot put them in the wrong place in the store, so I got them for only $120, An early Christmas gift from the wifey!
Style: Very modernistic, sexy, and classy although not as fancy as Beats or Sennheiser, but they will catch your eye immediately.
Comfort: Extremely, you can wear these things for however long you desire and they won’t hurt your head like others. They also stay firmly attached while I am dancing up a storm. They feel just like pillows on your ears, so comfy just like the XB-500’s which I love.
Sound Quality: Top Notch and better than competitors such as Beats. The low end on these cans are incredible, and once you hit the Bass Boost feature be prepared to have subwoofers blasted in your ears. No headphones I have ever heard can pound out the bass notes and still sound crisp like these bad boys. The highs and mids both are very well refined and not muddy or sharp, they are evenly balanced and perfect where they can go loud without hurting your ears just like the very best speakers are designed to do,…sound natural without overdoing it. You don’t even need to use an EQ that’s how crystal clear the 950’s are, and to every single genre. I listen to a variety from EDM to Rock to Hip Hop to Pop and then some, trust me they can handle any kind of music you throw at them and won’t distort @ high volume. They sound better than most at a fraction of the cost, literally! I know they aren’t considered audiophile grade but give them a listen and you’ll be surprised my friends!
Build Quality: Wonderful and very durable, not cheap plastic like most.
Battery Life: Amazing, 4 hours to charge, lasts 20 hours!!! Sony supplied an a/v cable in case the battery dies, you still can jam to some good music.
Bluetooth: Great, I can walk about 10 feet outside my apt and they will stay connected. Love that they have a built in mic for calls. Very easy to pair also.
Features: Play, Pause, Volume, Track Up/Down and Bass Boost all on the unit.
