Sony MDRZX110 ZX Series Stereo Headphones Review

Introduction

When it comes to headphones, you’re looking for three factors to come into play.Build quality, sound quality and features. Will the Sony MDRZX headphones measure up to the competition and provide value for money?

 

Build Quality & Design

The headphones are smaller than they look in the product description picture. The earpieces fold compactly into a neat U-like or horseshoe shape, but the build has a flimsy plastic feel and will not take severe abuse. The headband feels as though it would snap rather easily.

The padding is synthetic leather and reasonably comfortable for listening sessions. The top band tends to squeeze down on the top of the head, and loosening them does not help since the weight of them – still light at under 5 ounces – makes them fall down when you lean back. The ear padding itself is soft and comfortable, though, and the earpiece is slightly angled to fit the head naturally.

Features

The Skullcandy S2IKDY-010 Ink’d 2.0 Earbud Headphones with Mic… phew that’s a mouthful! are available in Black/red and in black with blue. They come with a lifetime limited manufacturer’s warranty.

The headphones incorporate some features which Skullcandy proclaim such as “Attacking Bass”, which should offer a more powerful bass, “Natural Vocals”, technology which should ensure that vocals are no longer tinny and “Precision Highs” which should mean the higher range of frequencies are not muddled and more clear.
