  1. Mifmaster

    I like the fact that this Sony ZX series wired over ear headphone is comfortable on my head and over my ears. These Sony ZX Headphone are not totally outside noise canceling, which I prefer. I have hearing issues, especially when my husband has his new big TV sound louder than my TV in the next room. When he is watching sports on his TV he gets emotionally involved with the game and loudly commenting on how they are playing that sport, as if they can hear him. I can hear through the headphone, when he shouts but it is very faint and does not bother me at all. Depending on my concentration while wearing the Sony ZX headphones I noticed that I can’t hear the doorbell or someone knocking on my front door and sometimes I can not even hear the phone ring. I also, noticed that the sound quality is very good for this Sony ZX Headphone that do not have a control for volume on the set itself. This Sony ZX series headphone is not wireless, which I am finding out that the newer TV’s do not have a connecting plug to connect to a wired headphone. Do not forget to get a connecting wire or cable from the back of your TV to were you sit to view your TV, unless you are less than 3 ft from you TV, in which case you will probably not need to be buy any headsets to hear your TV. I have a connecting cable (20 feet plus) from the back of my TV plug to my sitting area, which is approximately 10 to 12 feet away from my TV. I have been using this Sony ZX Series Headphones for over 20 years and I am very satisfied with the performance and quality of this product. Hope this helps!

    Purchased for my 6th grader for school. Great fit and easy to store. I will say the unfolding of the headphones is a little difficult at times for my son to do, that’s the only downside. Other than that great purchase!

    Good product under $10. Brought this product as a back up for my wireless buds for listening podcast. Now my kids are using it for their school work. I would definitely recommend this headphones.

    I bought this headphone with mic used at 50% off for only one reason – to find out if amirm’s proclamation, in the Audio Science Review, that this headphone transforms itself from ugly duckling to audiophile-grade hi-fi wonder with just a bit of EQ?Paint me surprised, but I have to admit – a qualified, YES!The BIG qualifiers here are that you should pair the headphone with a good dac and headphone amp combined with a parametric eq system to realize this transformation at moderate listening volumes. This means using Windows with the free Equalizer APO installed (no free equivalent for Mac), a decent USB dac/headphone amp combo like the Hidizs S9 PRO (or the more expensive Cayin RU6 for a more organic/analog R2R sound), and the EQ config below. The total comes under USD 150/275 (given above dac/amp choices) not counting a windows laptop/source. I tried this with both the built in sound card in the PC (Realtek) and a Creative Sound Blaster Play! 4 and the transformation wasn’t sufficiently hi-fi enough for my tastes, but you can still give it a shot as a first step and decide if you want to step up the dac/amp.My “reference” headphone system is a Denafrips Ares II DAC (USD 850 retail) paired with a xDuoo TA-26 headphone amp (USD 320 retail) and Beyerdynamic DT 880 600 Ohm headphones (USD 200 retail), something together that I was able to get for roughly USD 1,200, though the Ares II DAC is primarily servicing my hi-fi speaker system and so is not something I would spent that much on just for headphones. Even that requires EQ (most headphones do since it is challenging for a single driver to do the entire frequency range perfectly). This reference system does have a touch more “magic” going on for it, but all things considered, costs significantly more and not portable. So what do you get for all that extra money? Better soundstage and imaging, better headroom, real or imaginary magic to the sound, far better durability and out-of-the-box experience without eq., and more bragging rights. The Sony has one configuration that gives you a peek into hi-fi quality; deviate from that and the “budgetness” shows.To test this headphone, I used the Denafrip Ares II dac with xDuoo MT-602 for a headphone amp since the impedance on this headphone is 33 ohm which the xDuoo TA-26 cannot handle. I also tried this with the Topping L30 instead of the MT-602 and was just as good. Distortion becomes readily apparent at higher listening volumes or with bass heavy tracks. While Amir’s EQ recommendations were good, the one I like the most was from Maiky76 and pasted below. Install Equalizer APO on windows, update the config with these EQ values, plug in the headphones through a decent dac/amp, and you will find a very pleasing and full listening experience whether you want to call the sound hi-fi or not.Preamp: -7.9 dBFilter 1: ON PK Fc 40 Hz Gain 8 dB Q 0.38Filter 2: ON PK Fc 157 Hz Gain -3.6 dB Q 1.34Filter 3: ON PK Fc 1010 Hz Gain 4.7 dB Q 3.4Filter 4: ON PK Fc 2467 Hz Gain 4.27 dB Q 2.49Filter 5: ON PK Fc 8818 Hz Gain 5 dB Q 0.48Filter 6: ON PK Fc 8580 Hz Gain -3 dB Q 6

    I bought these because my friend recommended me to, and she has great taste! I wanted to buy them in pink but the black pair was cheapest and matched my laptop best, and I’m glad I bought the black pair now. They’re very modern-looking and go with everything. The sound quality is incredible and the noise cancellation is shockingly good considering the price. I keep getting yelled at by my mom because I can never hear her when I have these on. It’s great, because I don’t really want to hear her most of the time LOL. I will definitely repurchase these when the time comes.

  6. Heidi Mueller

    Great price! Great product! Great brand! I love the way these cancel out most noise around you when your wearing these. The folding feature is the best because it easily fits into the glasses part of the backpack. Adjustable length is definitely a selling point. The ear muffs are super soft and not itchy or irritating. I have a daughter with over sensory stimulation disorder and she loves these! Price is fantastic for the product!

    Personally, I can’t stand ear buds, and flimsier on-ear models (like Koss KPH, for example) don’t last long enough before either the plastic breaks or the wire starts to fail.The audio quality is fine. No outright downsides (like tinniness or crunching), but I’m sure audiophiles would find plenty to criticize. But, that’s the point. Clear, acceptable audio for under $20 and a sturdy build quality while still lightweight and portable. Ideal for podcasts, audiobooks, and YouTube – or music on-the-go or at the gym. There is no noise cancellation, but the ear pads are significantly better at muffling noise than smaller, cheaper “on-ear” pads (like, again, Koss KPH – nothing against them, they’re just an example).Concerning size, these will take a few weeks to “break in” if you have a big head like me, but once they do, they are not too tight. They may be too large for young children, though.The only downside I’ve experienced is that some pairs tend to start sending “phantom inputs” (volume up/down, stop playback, activating voice control, etc.) as they age, especially at the gym. Presumably, this is due to sweat getting into the contact and leaving tiny amounts of salts. Headphone manufacturers really should start producing 3.5mm jacks that have the “microphone/volume control region” of the jack replaced with plastic or rubber.

    OK, I seldom write reviews, but these $10 headphones just blew my socks off! I just came back to order a 2nd set! Yes they are NOT high quality, they ARE, a little flimsy, could use thicker ear pads & can’t give sound quality of expensive earphones BUT they are pretty darn good! MUCH better then I ever expected. Plenty of bass & midrange, a little lite on the high tones for “my” taste but overall I’d give the sound 8 out of 10, not bad for $10! I plugged them into my phone to test, listen to Eminence Front and was instantly blown away! I’ll download a Equalizer app and bump the high tones. I like that they are very light weight & comfortable. I usually use ear buds but there are times when I can’t, I need these to just fill the gap for those times, these are a winner & the price you can’t beat! FYI, go with the white if you plan to wear them in the hot summer sun, the black’s soak up the heat quickly. 😉

    However don’t expect a 10 dollar pair of headphones to be at $100 performance. These are currently selling for around 10 dollars on amazon. It may go up or come down slightly after I made this review but either way at $9.99 plus tax it’s very hard to be overly critical on these headphones. I’ve seen recent youtube video of some guy criticizing them and I don’t know why. They are literally dirt cheap headphones and you get what you pay for. I went with the white model just because black headphones seem so common these days and the wires on these feel very cheap so you are going to want to try to take care of them as best as you can. Try not tangling them up and try not stressing the cable out because over time this may cause the headphones to go bad but again these are 10 dollar headphones so hard to complain. The sound quality is pretty good. I wouldn’t call it great but we’re not spending hundreds of dollars on headphones. These are only 10 dollars currently and even at 15 dollars I would say these aren’t bad. I do think that the headphones feel more like they’re designed for children with smaller heads and smaller ears but even then I don’t think it’s bad even for Adults to get these for themselves. I am currently typing this review with my headphones on and while laying on my pillow they do slide a little. That’s just a minor complaint. I will not give dirt cheap good sounding headphones less than 5 stars mainly because I don’t want to be harsh on something that doesn’t cost a lot of money. If you want something better then be prepared to spend more money. Sony makes pretty good products so this is a trustworthy brand and even if they end up eventually dying which has happened to me with even more expensive headphones then it’s not expensive to replace or buy from some other company. When I was a kid I had an expensive Boise Headphones my dad bought me and they died on me and we never had them replaced. I remember the sound on those sounding pretty great but they apparently weren’t durable at all. This was probably a decade ago. Don’t know if Boise has improved on their headphones or not but because of the bad experience I stray away from more expensive headphones.

    Bought these for my kid as basic headphones and ended up buying some for myself. Surprised by how good these are for cost. I have large Fostex headphones and wireless buds but I use these the most in the house because they are light, convenient, sound decent and I don’t have worry about them. Pretty flat response. Bass extension is good for driver size with smooth roll off. Upper treble is a little weak. Good sensitivity, they get plenty loud with portable devices. Plastic parts don’t make creak sounds when adjusting headphones. Very light and comfortable for on-ear style. Fits both adults and my 3rd grader.
