Sony MDR-ZX660AP Lightweight Over-Ear Headphone : Five Stars

No more listening to his crap.

Sound quality for the price is incredible. Having previously owned bass boosted overear headphones from sony that cost 5x of these; i would say that these are fantastic value. Don’t get me wrong, you can definitely tell the difference between these and a £150 pair in build quality and sound. But these headphones are great for the price tag. Sound is crisp; and bass is fair. The quality of the sound stays clear even at high volume. As well as good sound exclusion from those around you; and if you’re playing music loudly it keeps the sound in so you’re not disturbing those around you. I’m yet to use the mic for phonecalls, but i imagine it’ll be acceptable. Overall, very very good product for £35.

These are perfect, noise canceling headphones but the reason i have given it 3 stars ( i wanted to give it 3 and a half but it won’t allow ma) is because after about 25 minutes to half an hour, it starts to hurt your ears and its even more painful if you wear glasses like ma, shame really and i can’t do without ma glasses so i use this headphones for short short periods so its okay :(.

Lovely crisp, clear & balanced sound.

A classy touch in champagne colour (beige/cream to everyone). Buy them – you could spend three times this amount and not be any better in sound quality; they just aren’t bluetooth or noise cancelling – that is all.

Good sounding headphones for a good price, the flat cable is so much better than the old style and the leather-enclosed headband is a very nice touch.

. Excell product, had previous model and like all sony stuff it all works fine and sounds real good, one downside is padding on ears are soft and after about an hour they hurt, but hopefully the band will stretch and relive this issue, otherwise real good for the price.

Honestly i did not know what to expect as i always have preferred in ear headphones, however i was pleasantly surprised at how often i use these now, the sound is great and has a nice wide range with good base, and there now my daily driver. (plus the green colour sold it for me.

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.

Buy on Amazon

Bought for my holiday to florida. Fantastic sound quality and really comfortable on a long hall flight. Really impressed would defiantly recommend. Thought make up marks and things would show up really quickly but they haven’t marked at all. The only down side i would say is that they don’t come with a protective case. I feel they may get damaged in a big handbag because they don’t fold down.

Misleading item description. Advertised as ‘over ear’ (which as title suggested is supposed to go over your ear) but it’s in fact an ‘on ear’ so much smaller, hence not what i was expecting. Otherwise looked very nice, i especially like the orange detailing but i send it back because it was not what i wanted. Can’t commebt on quality of sound as i didn’t open it. Immediately refunded once i posted the return due to tracking, so that was good.

They are awesome, good quality.

I’m loving these and using them on conjunction with a sony xperia z3 tablet. Comfortable, compact, and a good rich sound for the price. An audiophile might be able to find fault but for the average person who wants good sound at a great value these are just the ticket.

Bought for my partner and his very happy with that.

Excellent sound quality for the price.

Since i have a scooter, these have come in handy with taking calls using the button on the mic or changing my music if i am riding it. The sound itself is brilliant so it’s totally worth the money so i would highly recommnd.

Great headphones, very lite and great sound. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reasonably priced headphone set.

I’ve already got the grey ones like this so got these for my hubby. They have great sound for the money.

Amazing sound and amazing mic.

Amazing service, i ordered this at 8pm on a sunday night and revived it the next day on a bank holiday monday at lunch time. The headphones themselves look awesome, i had the model before, the 610’s i think they are?. Anyhow, these are definitely better, better fit, better sound, overall can’t go wrong with the price, ive had the previous pair for 2 years so i’m hoping these last as long.

I loved these headphones so much. I am not kidding when i say the sound quality is the same as beats but about 1/3 of the price. I got them in the champagne colour and it is so nice.

Great sound, great colour, fantastic buy. Very happy with these headphones and would highly recommend.

Good sound for price, but a little too much on the bass, distorting clarity. Cancels out enough noise to comfortably listen to music undisturbed. Quite small around the ear, so personally i can’t listen for long periods of time without pain in my ears from them being squashed. Overall a good quality, stylish headphone for the price.

Great headphones, good sound, hurts a bit after long use. I just wish they i can adjust the volume- but otherwise it is great and i use them every day for my commute.

Didn’t expect it to be great quality as they aren’t hugely expensive headphones, but i’ve had £15 earphones that have much better quality audio. The audio isn’t awful, but if you’re a music lover like me and use headphones frequently, you’re probably going to want something with better quality audio. They are, however, comfortable and still working over a year after purchase.

A nice set of headphones, a bit creaky after a month or so but worth it.

Amazing bass and clarity for both music and voice calls.

Stunning audio quality especially when using a sony device such as the xperia z2 tablet and phone. Bass is punchy but not too over powering. Good all round build quality a mixture of materials used, metal for part of the headband and soft earcups.

Bought for my son’s 12th birthday and hes happy.

These headphones are comfortable, good looking and great sounding for any music with a heavy beat. For classical music, accoustic stuff or choral music etc. Look elsewhere, but if you like a bit of push in your sound you can’t go wrong with these.

Great for the money, good sound, comfortable. The pads do come off after a while though.

Good, bit a too mush plastic feel but sound is excellent.

These are the coolest headphones. They are so cool and the volume is amazing. It’s sound is smooth and clear. And i would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a decent pair of headphones.

My wife is using them at gym and she is happy with them.

You also get some bass as well.
