Sony WH-CH500 Wireless Bluetooth NFC On-Ear Headphones : The Best Budget Headphones !

These headphones are truly amazing , best bass and lows and highs , honestly these i are the best pair of bluetooth headphones i have ever owned. Very light weight and has a good fit so it doesn’t fall off. If your that person that commutes to work by walking bus or train , this i definitely for you. The sound is very punch it looks very stylish but at the same tim very discrete will all three colours.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I thought by spending 2-3 times more than the non popular brands, ie relatively unknown chinese brands, you would get a compelling product. But no, they still sound barely ok and have no life in the audio. Save yourself some time and money and either get something like the august ep650 or just spend the big bucks and get the usual high quality expensive stuff if you are going to listen to lots of audio.

I bought these headphones as my workout headphones as i don’t want to damage my main headphones bose qc35 ii. So i am comparing these to a £250 pair of headphones, which is something to bear in mind. Build quality – average – cheap plastically look and feel but the all-black colour hides this somewhat. The buttons are very cheap, feel like they will only work 50% of the time (but they do work all the time)sounds quality – happily surprised – the sound quality is pretty good, even when i’m comparing it to my bose.The sound range is great, the base is pretty good and i didn’t find anything that made me think ‘that was bad’. There is no noise canceling, but that is what i desired as i wear them when running and still want to be aware of surrounding. Fit – takes some getting used to – they are pretty tight and they are on-the-ear, so won’t cover the whole ear. It takes some getting use to/adjusting to find that sweet spot, but they are very secure on the head (perfect for exercise)overall, pretty good headphones, i wouldn’t pay over £40 for these, but they provide good sound quality, but they are a budget built headphone.

I bought these as i wear hearing aids, and am unable to wear conventional ones.

I’m speechless of how a set of bluetooth headphones can sound like this?. My problem in the past with earphones was that you didn’t have enough power to drive them. These are on another level i can’t put them into words. I have a few pairs of wired sennheisers, and although they may not be as good. These blow everything out the water for under a hundred quidi’m gobsmacked, these are amazing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
