Sony WH-CH500 Wireless Bluetooth NFC On-Ear Headphones : Nice but not very comfortable

I like everything about it but i found a fault with the microphone which i thought was minor however i have ended up snapping one of the hinges that kept the actual ear muff thing in place. There is no wiring damage or anything, still works like a beast however i can;t use it anymore as the right ear muff swivel loosely. Im terribly sorry but do you know a way i can get it repaired?. If not can you please send me a replacement?.It hasn’t even been a year yet. 🙁 it cost a lot itself and i can’t afford to buy a new one.

They are very good value for money they are a bit uncomfortable and they do not have the greatest sound ever but it is definitely one of the best for the money and i would recommend them as a cheap pair of wireless headphones.

Love the sony bluetooth headphones. Full rich sound and nice bass massaging your ears. Was sceptical at first, but now i am convinced. Battery life is very good and long lasting. Wearing the headphones you might want to consider not to have any pointy earrings in, as the headphones are might a bit tight for some but i personally don’t have any problems with that.

My partner, our son and i all have these headphones. After getting these headphones for my partner for christmas my son then begged to get a pair. Both using them for gym and boxing they have been beaming with joy that not only do they stay on when doing cardio but the sound quality is superb. The battery life is pretty good too and very fast to charge :)would defiantly recommend them to anyone looking for wireless headphones.

Loved these headphones until i got a new phone and now when you turn the bluetooth on it won’t connect, have also tried to connect them to some family & friends phones and nothing comes up when you search for devices on bluetooth.

For the money paid, the sound is surprisingly good with fantastic clarity. So much better without the cable. The range on these is awesome.

Wanted cheap pair of headphones for listening to music when kids are in bed. The sound quality is pretty good. Fit is fine and battery lasts for ages. People are complaining that they’re no good for watching tv/ films. Haven’t tried that but it does say in description not suitable for tv.

Did a lot of research and found i kept coming back to these as a present for my wife who had described what she would like. If i have one problem with the it’s struggling to say anything to her as she walk she around the house with them on her head. Good duration between charges, easy to use, pairs with your audio with no problem and she really likes the sound quality. I think they’ve been a good buy. Luckily i also found a blue case to go with them elsewhere on amazon so they can go travelling too without any problem though they don’t take up much space when folded.

  • Great Quality
  • Works and sounds very good, but a very loose fit on the head.

Buy on Amazon

I normally buy expensive headphones because i expect good quality for the price but after my second pair of bowers and wilkins p7’s failed after 2 months use i gave up and went back to the only headphone make that i have never had problems with. I had a 4 year old set of sony headphones years back and only got rid of because the cups wore out. The cups hold in place well and the battery lasts plenty of hours.

Love the sound quality and the battery life is much less of a problem than i thought it’d be. However the headphones aren’t incredibly comfortable and it is an annoyance that they don’t fold or have some form of bag to carry them around in.

Possibly the best thing i’ve bought from amazon – straight up – these compact headphones have excellent sound quality, really easy to pair, very comfy on the ear and with an overnight charge you will have boombastic sounds all day. Highly recommended purchase.

I think these are good value for money if you’re on a budget but i decided to pay a little more for a more premium pair. I ended up returning these headphones because they were uncomfortable for me and the plastic they’re made of looked flimsy. I can’t speak of the battery life and sound quality because i didn’t really use them before returning. Would recommend buying these if you’re not willing to pay more for a pair.

This was delivered on time and is very easy to setup with clear pictures to instruct you. It feels a slightly awkward on my head and seems very lightweight for headphones but i’m pleased with the sound quality and the see friendliness.

Stunning, comfortable and great sound quality. I use them all the time and they are perfect for the gym as well which was exactly what i was looking for. (had to return another pair recently because they were bigger and looser, especially when moving around. But these are perfect)the only downside is that when the volume is up, it actually comes out so people around me can hear it. Not a big fan of it, but i can live with it. So definitely worth 5 stars.

The sound is great but unfortunately is not a very good fit around the ears and is very loose on the head and tends to fall off when bending over to pick up something. You’ll need to be fast and a good catcher to stop it hitting the floor.

These are good, inexpensive basic over ear headphones. They don’t deliver the greatest sound quality but are perfectly good for my intended use (pc for streaming video, podcasts/music whilst dog walking with iphone 6). Paired easily with my pc and iphone. Would recommend as a basic set – pay more for a better set if that’s what you want.

Sony WH-CH500 Wireless Bluetooth NFC On-Ear Headphones with 20 hours Battery Life – Black

The headphones were delivered quickly and nicely packaged. They look nice and feel like good quality. I particularly like that both earpiece can we turned to make the whole unit flat (good for travel). Very easy to connect and sound quality is good. However, they are not very comfortable. The top part is not completely smooth so start hurting the top of your head after a while and the earpieces are a little on the small side so that after long wear it hurt your ear as the padding sits on the edges of your ears and start pressing.

Considering how cheap this product is, i didn’t have massively high hopes for it, but its far better then i could have imagined. I have other headphones that are over £100 but wired so i feel it would be unfair to compare the sound quality, but for this price am not arguing.
