What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Sony MDR-1000X Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Ambient Sound Touch Sensor High Resolution Audio Headphones - Black
  • Quality is outstanding, and they look luxury. Could not be happier.
  • I have had no issues so far and feel that the build quality on the headphones are reflected in the price, very well made.
  • These headphones are amazing. Superb sound, very comfortable.
  • Sound is rich, design is gorgeous and elegant, gesture controls are really intuitive and simple
  • The noise cancelling works extremely well - so good on flights. They are very light too.
  • There is IMHO a design fault. After relatively light use the head 'band' has snapped - I looked online and it seems this is a very common problem.

What customers say about "Features"
 
Sony MDR-1000X Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Ambient Sound Touch Sensor High Resolution Audio Headphones - Black
  • Headphones are outstanding. Sound quality much better than competition (Bose because Beats are no a competition at all for them).
  • Touch panel is very intuitive and easy to use. No problems at all with it even when I fall asleep in the plane.
  • Sound quality - They sound just as impressive as my wired Beyerdynamic cans
  • Touch gestures - Really innovative and easy to use. ANC - Noise cancelling was really good, no complaints here
  • It blocks out nearly all the tube noise - apart from when there is significant screeching sounds!

What customers say about "Power"
 
Sony MDR-1000X Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Ambient Sound Touch Sensor High Resolution Audio Headphones - Black
  • Great touchpad controls, long battery, amazing noise cancellation.
  • The battery life is fantastic - lasting 20+ hours for me (I never have an issue where it loses charge when I'm in dire need of it).
  • I've been using these headphones for over a year. A consistent strength of these headphones is the battery life
  • Battery lasts so long I sometimes forget to charge it.
  • Battery still outstanding despite very heavy use (over 8h per day at work), no problem with connectivity or sound quality.
