Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
14 - 24000 Hz
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Balanced Armature
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

July 9, 2012

I Purchased these headphones last week, and I called on the phone, and spoke with a gentleman who was pretty helpful. And even better than that, he did not hesitate to price match the legit sale I had him look up online. It took 2 days to get to me (fast shipping though the 2 days felt like a week cause I didnt order them until Thursday night) which was nice, and I was able to put them to use right away.

The packaging on the headphones was pretty nice. It wasnt over done like you see on some of these "rapper/musician endorsed" headphones, which does not seem to matter to me one way or the other. Sometimes it makes me think they spent all the money on the presentation so at least you have something nice to look at, when you find out the sound sucks. But the presentation was nice, upscale for Sony. It comes with a charging dock/cradle, extra sizes of the ear tips, and a little pouch.

A few of my concerns were 1) the Cradle. I would have preferred it to use a generic Micro USB or something I can charge wherever im at, but instead, it needs to be connected to this Sony terminal to re-charge. But after i started reading the set up, I learned that this dock/cradle HAS a built in battery, and can recharge the headphones 2.5 times. so that fixed the first issue. and 2) The volume control is in a weird position when wearing them.

After I have used these all week and weekend, These concerns seemed to be irrelevant. I do not frequently change volume levels when I am running or working out, so I just set the volume to the level I wanted, and then did my thing. And I have not needed to charge the device on the go either. I have them fully charged when I leave for the gym, or go on a run, and when I am done for the day, I charge it up again. If i was going to be out using them for an extended period of time, I could just bring the dock, and recharge it there.

The comfort to me was not an issue. I had read some reviews where they mentioned it took a while to get use to, but prior to purchasing these, I used the JayBird Freedoms. So this was an easy transition for me. Very similar style and fit. When I got the right tip in, it fit securely and I was able to get a great seal out of them.

Bottom line, and MOST important in my opinion, was the sound quality. This is where i think Sony has the ability to excel (when they put forward the effort). These headphones are probably the best sounding BLUETOOTH headphones i have heard. Keep in mind bluetooth. I have some Studio headphones that are definitely better, but those are over the ear, and wired. The clarity from these is amazing. The separation of the instruments and vocals are crystal clear. as distinct as a live concert. They are more detailed then any other bluetooth headphones I have heard. They are full sounding, and I think I am sold now on balanced armature. These are the first balanced armature headphones I have used, and now I know what all the fuss is about.

Overall there are a few features I would have liked to have seen done differently, like the volume button, or the carrying case. But when it comes down to it, the sound quality is superb. The bluetooth functions were easy, and are consistent. They are expensive, but i do understand how they justified the cost. I am happy with this purchase, and I would buy these again.

Good value for price

December 23, 2013

Great sound quality, high listening volume potential if desired (greater than wired headsets). Cord between earpieces is somewhat stiff, feels fairly durable but sometimes torsion against the back of the neck can force the earpieces out of the ears (mild annoyance). Next/prev track function works with android device (previous BT headset Plantronics Backbeat GO did not have this functionality). Sometimes when adjusting the right earpiece i accidentally hit the button that causes music to pause, if I used the headset for calls as well this could result in accidentally hanging up. Overall a pretty good unit, reasonable priced for the quality.

Great Stereo Bluetooth Headphones

August 22, 2013

This is probably the best sounding Bluetooth headphones.
The design is quite nice, modern and fashionable. I like these so much, 109.99 is great deal.
At first it took me a few days to learn how to wear it properly. It has almost all the feature I need, including all common features such as answering, play/pause music, next/previous, adjust volume. It works great with iPhones. iPhone doesn't support fast-forward/rewind with Bluetooth headset, it's not the problem of this headphones.
I was hoping that the battery status can display on iPhone's status bar, but it does not have this feature. Maybe it's because this earpiece is old, released two years ago I think. The battery status can still be inferred from the blinking of the LED indicator on the right ear.
For me, the battery life is longer than the stated 3.5 hours. It usually lasts 5 hours. The battery case that comes along together with the headphones makes me never need to worry about the battery.
Bottom line, nice sound, takes time to get used to, great feature and not bad battery life. Modern design.

Really good (but not quite perfect sound), little funny looking

December 6, 2013

The Sony XBA-BT75 sounds great, but I didn't give it 5 stars in that I find that I like to add some bass via equalizer to get a really nice "coloring" of the sound. Also, I cannot wear these with certain gym activities but it's fine just walking on the treadmill or riding a stationary bike. The charging system is fine. Worth the money, but can't say about durability since I've only owned them a month. I actually mainly got them for listening to on airplanes, listening to music when I can't play the stereo (e.g. late at night) and am very happy with them so far.
