2 out of 5 eggsEggcellent sound, flimsy headband.

Pros: Highest quality audio possible; music is superb when listening with this ones; internal amp; noise cancelling; rechargeable battery; external battery compartment in case you run out of charge from the internal one; mini jack connector and adaptor; hard carrying case.

Cons: The headband is really weak and flimsy, it broke after 4 months or so under normal use, I'm very obsessive taking care of my gadgets, not to say taking care of a 450 dlls headphones, and Sony said they could not be replaced because they are considered an "accessory", and I thought: "a 450 dlls headphones are just an accessory?".

The carrying case has clips on each side where you can attach an included strap, but those clips are also really cheapo-plastic-made and I bet they can broke as easily as the headband if you carry the pouch placing the strap by your shoulder.

Other Thoughts: I'm rating this headphones only with two eggs because of the cons I mentioned, the notorious weakness in both the headband and the clips of the carrying case, and because I can't believe they broke after 4 months, but I can't deny that the audio quality has no comparatives, the music comes to life when using this model, and the noise cancelling feature works flawlessly, I tested some more expensive headphones and none compares to the crispness of this, bass, middles and high frequencies sound really really clear and powerful.

I can't believe Sony didn't replaced them since they broke after 4 months of use.
