Sony MDR-ZX660AP Lightweight On-Ear Headphone : Good headphones

Good headset for reasonable money. Calls and microphone are also good.

Came on time and were packed well.

Lightweight, comfortable and amazing sound. Only downside is no volume control. But for price and quality you can’t fault them.

I bought these to wear for conference calls at work and for listening to music in the gym. They’re lightweight and being bald i like that there’s padding inside headband which you don’t find on some of the headsets lower down the range. I’m not an audiophile so i’m not able to comment on the subtleties of the sound delivered but i can say that the sound is to my ear “balanced”, with neither bass or treble overdone (i listen to a mixture of pop, rock, soul and classical). The single (left) sided cable is more practical for me as it’s easier to keep out of the way when i’m doing cardio work and the flat cable fdoes a good job of preventing tangles, but i have noticed it tends to snag more. For conference calling i’ve had several calls of up to an hour duration and there’s been no issues with hearing or being heard. The earpads are of the soft “wrinkly type” which makes them comfortable to wear and although i don’t expect them to last forever with me sweating on them in the gym, i’m not overly concerned having bought replacement earpads for my previous denons quite cheaply.

Light and soft padding on the ear.

I would recommend these headphones to anyone. A year has gone by and they are still amazing.

It’s a really good product, arrive in a few days, and the price is compatible with the quality.

Bought for £35 and worth every penny. Comfy, decent sound and do a good enough job of blocking outside noise for headphones that aren’t noise cancelling.

Neodymium drivers deliver clear, dynamic sound

Lightweight 40 m neodymium dynamic driver units deliver a punchy, rhythmic response to even the most demanding track. Combined with a highly sensitive diaphragm, you’ll be able to turn the headphones up loud and still enjoy clear audio across the spectrum.

Tight bass with Beat Response Control

Beat Response Control technology delivers tight, deep bass response, making it suitable for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximises airflow within the low frequency range, optimising the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms.

High sensitivity for a loud, clear sound

With a high sensitivity of 104 dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you’ll hear a louder sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.

Built-in microphone and inline remote

You don’t have to pause what you’re doing to take that important phone call. With a built-in microphone and in-line remote, you can easily make and answer calls from your smartphone.

Fewer tangles, more flexibility

The flat, single-sided 1.2 m cable is designed to resist snags and tangles, keeping your headphones knot-free and giving you more room to comfortably move around.

Separated ground cable cuts crosstalk

With a 4-wire L/R separated ground cable, audio channel separation is improved for better sound. Unlike conventional headphones, which share a ground wire, the cable includes left, right and independent ground wires for both channels, so you hear less distortion and crosstalk.

Simplify on-the-go listening with the SmartKey app

Personalise and configure music and call settings for your smartphone with the intuitive app. Sony SmartKey lets you assign listening and answering functions to single, double and triple press.

Good headphones for the money. These are not over ear though they are on ear and can fatigue your ears after a while. If you want something better go for the mdr 1a. They are alot more money but if you save for a while its worth the money. These are just entry level headphones so the quality can be limited.

Faultless performance with great bass sound. This is the third set i’ve bought (three different colours) for me and my two daughters.

Amazing headphones so loud and don’t bother anyone next to you plus nice design.
