These headphones are hugely entertaining to listen, this is because of the combination of hard-hitting dynamism and rhythmic precision.

Meanwhile, Sony provides the kind of energy and fun which may have users get up as well as dance on once they think no one is looking.

Sony MDR-1000X/C headphone is also articulate. It comes with amazing detail separation, with firm leading edges, which leave users in no doubt about what is happening to the instruments. Instruments are also given lots of space.

The MDR-1000X/C sound is surprisingly spacious, due to its closed-back style. The tone balance is also exceptional. The Sony MDR-1000XC doesn’t favor any specific portion of the frequency range that makes it extremely versatile. Treble is extremely crisp with no hardening up and grating. The midrange is impressive and direct as well, with lots of feeling in vocals. Bass is low and plentiful with no losing its maneuverability and definition, no threatening to overshadow the rest. That is something that even expensive wireless headphones struggle.


The battery is also a good feature of this headset. It has a battery life of twenty hours with active noise canceling and Bluetooth switch on. Sony MDR-1000x review shows that it has 18 hours of battery life when the volume was on maximum, but once you keep the volume at 60 to 80 percent, you can use this headset for longer hours.
