Before buying, I looked at different models of headphones for a very long time and in the end I decided not to take the Sony WH-CH710N, but these ones right away, since I already have a Sennheiser HD 4.50R, which, in theory, will be a higher class than the Sony WH-CH710N, so I didn’t see the point in taking them, but here the class will obviously be higher for sure. Also on the list were the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT, which everyone praises because of the quality sound, I compared three headphones and here is my verdict:
- Sennheiser HD 4.50R: Good noise, compact, looks sturdy but cheap for the price. The sound compared to the ears is lower, as if from a bucket, although by the way, the middle and high frequencies transmit well, but the low ones are very bad. There is no bass, except with an equalizer;
- Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT: They look solid, the noise is not bad, 40 hours of battery charging, by the way, also touch control. In terms of sound, they are good, songs at high volume do not mix into mush, unlike Sony, but otherwise, the difference is hardly noticeable and will be significant only for aesthetes (but it is worth recognizing in favor of Audio-Technica anyway). Bass is there, but weak, in my opinion. It is better to take them if listening to music is your priority;
- Sony WH-XB900N: Low frequencies are very well transmitted, like explosions and shots, just a buzz, but mids and highs are already worse. At high volume, songs often mix into a mess with music, which makes it unpleasant to listen to, but if you listen to medium volume, everything is tip-top. The bass is the best, it hits the ears nicely and the equalizer is not needed. As for me, they are good for games, for music they will probably be worse than the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT, but since for me the sound in games will be more important than listening to music (although I do the second one much more often), Sony is still my choice .
The disadvantages are not particularly critical, but they leave a fly in the ointment in a barrel of honey and therefore mix impressions about them.
