    Just picked off a pair of these. None of the four incremental improvements would be meaningful to me, nor, I suspect, anyone else. They do what they do incredibly well, altho the “silver” color is sort of a light, dusty beige grey. I listen to classical music, one important feature of which is, it frequently becomes very SOFT, almost silent, and a silent background is vital for full enjoyment.

    Hi MICHAEL do you thinks the sound quality for playing classical music are good or no good beside the the full silent background which you mentioned. Need your expert advice.

    Bro…. are you serious? Its only for 200usd and its pretty good sounding headphone. Almost on par with those few thousands dollars headphone. Sony signature sound is more mids than highs. Althought you can add some treble at the app. The frequency response is very good. Surely can satisfy bass heads too. Details all well reproduced. Lastly, you cant go wrong with these. Quickly get one from amazon!

    Noise cancelling good. It cancels mids and lows better. For highs like ppl talking, it wont cancel very well when music is not playing. When music is playing, you can hear nothing from outside. Just make sure your volume is set to confort listening.
