Review of Sony MDRXB950BT/B Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones

A little bit about these headphones right off the bat but will definitely go into more details later on.

So from a pro perspective they have excellent Battery life, regularly can get over 2-3 days of use out of them between charges, as well the audio quality is excellent as you would expect with most Sony products. love the fact they are bluetooth and no wires to get tangled. One additional benefit is they will still work as regular headphones if they die, with the included audio cord, but this is also a con which I will cover below.

On the Con side of these, I do a lot of Web conferences and the Mic is extra sensitive and picks up all the background noises so have to be extra conscious of it. as well you can’t use this with two devices at the same time, as you can with some other headphones I have used and will review HERE. As well it can only keep a couple of Paired items in memory at a time and I have found I usually have to re-pair to get it to connect with a device I have used before. An additional issue is when the battery does  die you can still use them but only as regular headphones, not sure why they would not have included an inline Mic with the provided cable.

I think overall for a Sub $200 set of headphones you get a good bang for your buck with the build quality as well as the sound quality, but there are a few areas which could be improved in a future version, as well there are some other options which I will cover HERE that tick a few more boxes.
