  1. M.O.S.

    UPDATE 3/13/23: I noticed another reviewer mention that the padding has given out some after a while and I will concur that this has been my perceived experience as well. The padding flattens easily and I wish it was a bit more robust. I wouldn’t say that the speakers are poking my ear, but I do feel my ear being pressed slightly and it does lead to minor discomfort over time. So I would say that the padding could definitely be better on these, and it should be at this price point. I would maybe deduct a half star for this if that was an option, but since it’s not, I’m keeping my 5 star rating. I’m still happy with the sound, but I’ll definitely be looking out for some better pads.Original Review:I’m impressed with these headphones. They are really good. I will, however, call out from the beginning that you lose some functionality and build quality (potentially – more on that below) seen in more expensive headphones and even though these are “only” $150, I think it’s a bit pricey. But I think good headphones are just ridiculously expensive in general. With that out of the way, here are the headphones I tried in addition to the WH-CH720N: Sony XM4 & XM5, Sennheiser Momentum 4, Soundcore Q30 & Q45, and Technics EAH-A800.My main objective in getting new headphones was to get a serious sound quality upgrade from the Soundcore Life Q20’s that I’ve had for several years now, and I was finally ready to pay $300-$400 for it if I had to. I was looking for clear mids and highs with deep, clear, separate bass (think of the difference between a sound system with a separate subwoofer vs a sound system without that tries to pack the bass into the main speakers). With the caveat that sound quality is subjective to the listener, here are my thoughts on each of the headphones I tried:Technics EAH-A800 – absolute garbage and a joke at their price. These didn’t even merit more than a few minutes of listening.Soundcore Q45 – disappointingly uninspiring sound compared to the much cheaper Q30. They lack bass. I spent very little time with these because I knew that I would take the Q30’s over them without question.Soundcore Q30 – These are very good for their price (compared to the other options at that price). If I hadn’t been willing to spend $300+ for the best sound, I would have kept these despite the fact that they powered off in the middle of calls (a problem I believe is specific to OnePlus phones based on my research). But compared to more expensive headphones, the Q30’s bass was not as well defined/separated and it bled into all the frequencies, lending to an overall muddy sound – comparatively. But these are good, and at their price point, I doubt you can find better headphones.Momentum 4 – These headphones had, hands down, my favorite bass signature; it was fantastically clean and able to hit impressive lows I could not hear in any other cans. The overall sound was very good, although I never could get them to sound as clear as I wanted once I experienced the 720’s. The M4’s have fantastic battery life. Sadly, there were quite a few issues with the M4’s. They sound awful in wired mode – like, don’t even bother, they’re that bad. Taking calls on the M4s was a very weird experience; it’s hard to explain, but voices sounded kind of echo-y, but in the sense that it was like the voice was everywhere around me to the extent that I was sure that everyone else in the room was hearing the voice just as clearly as I was. I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not – all I can say for sure is that it was a very strange experience. The M4’s had software bugs that I just couldn’t overlook, such as the audio being out of sync with video when using aptx (I had to use the lower SBC format to get the audio in sync and this just didn’t make any sense!). The touch controls and on ear detection were a bit of a hit or miss. Software updates are unreasonably slow – like 20 minutes or longer. They are quiet – I found that I had to crank them up well past 50% to get enough volume, but at the end of the day, it didn’t really matter because they did get as loud as I ever needed and still had the ability to go louder. And they are on the heavier side, which meant they didn’t stay in place on my head if I looked down or up. I actually ordered a second pair hoping that the software issues were a defect, but the replacement had all the same issues. But that bass was so good I was tempted, even prepared, to overlook all of those shortcomings. Until I tried the XM5’s and the 720’s.Sony XM4 – I’m sure these were great for their time, but their age is evident. The sound was muddy and uninspiring to me. I quickly moved on from these.Sony XM5 – these are good – very good. I would have kept the XM5’s if the 720’s hadn’t been released just as I was comparing all of these headphones. The sound is very close to the 720’s, but just not quite as clear, though I think the bass may go a bit lower than the 720’s. It really mostly came down to price when deciding between the XM5 and 720. The XM5’s are feature rich with an excellent ambient mode (the best I’ve experienced). ANC is good, but not at the level I expected for their reputation and really not significantly better than most other headphones. Compared to the 720’s, I’d say the ANC actually blocked out less noise, but the XM5’s made almost no static sound with ANC on and that may have played into that perception because I think the slight static noise the 720’s make might just be covering up the external noises that I’m hearing more on the XM5’s. But getting the absolute best ANC was not the most important thing for me. I liked the touch controls on the XM5’s – it’s easier than feeling around for the correct button. But is it worth the price? Not for me – I’ll take the trade-offs of the 720’s for the savings, especially since I think the 720’s sound better. But I can easily see how someone would buy the XM5’s over the 720’s if money is not an issue.Finally, Sony WH-CH720N – these really are best described as the budget version of the XM5’s. Remember how I mentioned that they sound very similar to the XM5’s? Yeah, sometimes I forgot which headphones I was wearing, they are that close (post EQ-ing them to the best sound I could get from them). The ANC and Ambient modes aren’t quite as good on the 720’s, they don’t have touch controls (a positive or negative depending on the person), and they don’t feel as solidly built (though I might argue that is only because of how incredibly light they are – they actually seem well built and there are no creaks, but their lightness is easily perceived as “cheap”). The 720’s don’t come with a case and they don’t fold (but the XM5’s don’t fold, either); not a big deal to me. Not folding just means they have fewer breaking points and are less obnoxious to handle when off the noggin. These live on my desk, so a case is not important to me. For traveling, I prefer the compactness of earbuds anyway. The auto off feature only works after they lose bluetooth connection, which for the majority of us, only happens if we turn our phone off or walk far away from the headphones. So, not significant value there, though I do turn off my phone every night, so the headphones will at least shut off at night if I forget to do it manually, and that is good enough for me. The 720’s are strictly controlled with physical buttons that are well placed, though I find myself expecting the ANC/Ambient button to be on the back, not the front (don’t know why, because it actually makes sense the way they did it), causing me to push the wrong button more than I’d like. And I wish the volume up and down were more distinct from the play/pause button. The buttons are my only real (but minor) complaint, but I’m getting used to the buttons and will be fine in short order. The 720’s are slim compared to the XM5’s and the M4’s. And did I mention they are light? They are insanely light and extremely comfortable. Most importantly, the 720’s sound really good. While they don’t quite have the bass signature of the M4’s, they are so well balanced and clear across all of the frequencies (without being harsh or sibilant) while still having great, clear bass that it could be argued that the 720’s sound better. I just kept finding myself going back to the 720’s over every other set of cans. These headphones won out over the rest from my limited (but targeted) comparison. There might be better sounding headphones out there, but I haven’t found them.

    Things that mattered to me in choosing these headphones…1. I’m not going to try and sugar coat this too much. I don’t have money to burn. But a set of headphones that check all my boxes without doing anything I hate for a price I can handle is a tall order. Good headphones have never been cheap. ANC is still a premium feature (though this is changing fast). These headphones were just barely in my price range at $150. And frankly, although I like everything about them (so far) I think $100 would have been closer to the price these should be selling for. This segment of the market is crowded and if I was willing to gamble even more than I did, I could have probably gotten something I was happy with for significantly less than that $150. I went with Sony because I’m an old guy and I know that you usually don’t pay more for a Sony product for no reason.2. Comfort. Of course, we’re talking perceived comfort. Comfort involves a lot of guesswork. For these, it appears that I mostly guessed right. These just fit my ears with a little pressure here and there. My ears are not small but also not that large. If you have large ears, you should probably go somewhere where you can try the headphones on before you buy. I probably should have done this myself because comfort is always my top priority (other than price). Most likely the pads on these will not be difficult to replace should the need arise. And it usually does with headphones. Sooner or later, the pads will always wear out.3. ANC – Of course. This is my first pair of ANC headphones and it’s everything I want. The transparency mode is slightly quieter than I would like but it’s acceptable. I’ve seen some people complaining about the ANC not being effective on these. Not sure what they’re talking about but maybe they’re coming from much higher end ANC. For me, the first day I had them, I had some people come to see me and they were banging on my door. I heard absolutely nothing. They were freaked out because they thought something was wrong. So….my verdict on this is if you want perfect ANC, maybe shop around. I’m not here to tell you it’s the best. I don’t have anything to compare it to. I can only say it leaves me wanting nothing and I’m happy with it.4. Sound quality – Out of the box, I found the factory sound to be lacking. But that usually happens with me when I have new headphones. I can’t say for sure if the burn in effect is psychological or real but all I can say is a new pair of headphones takes some getting used to for me. At least the EQ is sufficiently adjustable in the app and I managed to get them to sound very nice. It’s nice that the settings you choose in the app will be stored in the headphones so the same settings will apply on other devices. I mostly use Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 PC so I’m not going to be fiddling around with the app much. These can go pretty loud and have decent bass. The drivers can provide good clarity for mids and highs if you fiddle with the EQ. The stock EQ sounds muffled. But that also might be a result of them not having been burned in. CONS – It’s really nitpicking for me to find many cons. These are great headphones (at least initially).1. The buttons could be a bit more tactile. In particular, I find the play/pause button a bit difficult to find and always find myself hunting for it. It is right between the Vol +/- buttons and should stick out a little more than it does to make it obvious. Also, the ANC button is nearly flush with the earcup and still makes me hunt for it a bit more than I like. I think I’ll get used to these buttons eventually but I don’t love them.2. The shortest timer for the auto off that’s available in the app is 15 minutes. I was really kind of surprised that there was no option for a shorter time.3. The headband is adjustable by clicks. So if the size you need is between two clicks, you might have to have them slightly too tight or slightly too loose. The higher end Sony headbands with no clicks seem like they would be better in this way.

    Good vs bad
    Good pints- sound quality- product material- light weightBad points:- i have connected it to my sony tv and have router also in same room .. so sometime voice drop while watching OTT platform… Don’t know technical reason behind it- see u can’t wear it for long duration as i am not die hard fan of listening- i feel mentally , hearing uncomfortable after sometime- keep away it from wet hand as electronic component may have adverse effect- in my opinion overhead or inear phone are not as good as speaker because of open sound hearing and electronic component are great in speaker

    Buenos Audífonos Inalámbricos 🙂
    De manera general considero que cumplen bien en cuestión de sonido y en material de construcción, algunos de sus puntos buenos son:- Cómodos- Ligeros- Resistentes- Cancelación de ruido y modo ambiente básico pero aceptable- Al utilizar la App se puede personalizar la experiencia con respecto al ecualizador lo que mejora bastante el sonido- Su batería dura bastante y se recarga rápidamente de igual maneraAlgunos puntos malos:- La conexión con el auxiliar 3.5 mm es mala ya que reduce la calidad de la música dependiendo del dispositivo en donde se conecte- Podría o no ser un punto malo el hecho de que se escucha bastante la música al tener los audífonos puestos, es decir cualquier persona que esté a tu lado podrá escuchar lo que oyes incluso si tienes el volumen a un 60% lo cuál repito que para la persona que escucha la música no considero que sea un problema pero puede ser incómodo si es que estás en algún lugar silencioso como lo puede ser una bibliotecaEn general considero que están bien aunque por el precio ($2300) podría haber mejores opciones, espero les pueda servir esta reseña 🙂

    Buenos para música, malos para video
    Hola, yo tengo los audifonos hace 3 dias en los que los he usado casi 10 hrs diarias y puedo decirles lo siguiente.*Puntos malos*1.- El delay es terrible y muy notorio en videos. Sé que no son audifonos gamer con un delay de 1ms pero es que tiene un retraso de aprox 300/400 milisegundos. Esto es demasiado ya que es notorio que no hay sincronización entre el vídeo y el sonido. Parece que ves una película animada dónde las bocas de las personas no están hablando en realidad.2.- No hay software para PC. Yo uso Windows 11 y mis 2 audifonos Bluetooth de Sony tienen terrible saltos en el audio aleatorios. Es como si muteara los videos/musica por fraccion de segundo. Esto se solucionaría con firmware o software que instalará correctamente los drivers correspondientes de los audífonos. Pero como no es así, toca usar drivers genéricos que no aprovechan o usan correctamente los audífonos.3.- Los botones fisicos de los cascos suenaaaaaan… 😵‍💫 como si fueran audifonos de 10 USD. Sé que no valen 500 USD pero vamos, que por 100 USD yo espero que no suenen huecos y plásticosos a morir.*Cosas buenas*1.- Suenan excelente. Sus graves son buenos y los bajos mas que excelentes. Podrás escuchar sonidos que quizás con audífonos básicos no vas a escuchar. Tampoco es un audio premium y es obvio pues no cuentan con Hi-Res.2.- Son ligeros, incluso demasiado que a veces olvidas traerlos puestos. Por su material basico-medio se logra el peso. Lo pongo como punto bueno porque seguro podrás llevarlos sin notarlos.3.- La cancelacion es regular. Diria yo que suficiente para la oficina, el gym, tu misma casa y poquito faltante para la calle. Pero claro, la calle seria lo difícil y mas si eres de ciudades grandes.4.- La bateria es para no cargar en varios dias. Además, la carga rápida te da mucho tiempo de uso con 5 minutos de carga. Aún si quieres carga al 100% con una carga de aprox 3/4 hrs será suficiente.Yo acabo de solicitar la devolución porque el delay para mí es insoportable. No quiero ver películas donde no sepa quién está hablando en realidad. O ver videos de Tiktok dónde la música del vídeo pasado sigue sonando en el vídeo siguiente. Terrible. Muy mal ahí Sony.

    Estoy satisfecho con los audífonos
    Esperaba un poco mas a primera vista del producto pero después de usarlos y descubrir cada vez mas y mas quede satisfecho con la relación precio calidad, el material con qué están hechos son bastante buenos 10/10El sonido no te estallará la cabeza pero es mas qué suficiente, me encanta qué tenga la app de sony que hace todo mejor te da toda la caracterización de tus audífonos y te permite conectarlos a dos dispositivos a la vez! Yo lo conecté a mi celular y mi tele y sin problemaLa app de sony es la misma qué los audífonos mas caros y tiene lo mismoLa cancelación de ruido es verdad qué sin musica tiene reducción del ruido pero no al cien porciento, la verdad reduce notablemente el ruido exterior pero no es como que te los pones y dejas de escuchar el ambiente un 6/10 no esperes por el precio lo qué es cancelación del ruido total pero para mi es mas qué suficiente porque no los usare para ambientes con ruido

    Buen sonido, pero no son tan portatiles
    Me encantó la calidad del sonido, debí haber hecho mejor investigación ya que no compre modelos más baratos por la cuestión de la portabilidad, me gusta que los audífonos se puedan doblar y guardar en un estuche sin embargo estos por su precio no tienen incluído ninguna de las dos cosas, ( ya había visto que no traía estuche pero no esperaba que no se pudieran doblar 🙁 )Por el precio hubiera preferido que pudieran ser mas portátiles, con todo lo demás está bien (me acaban de llegar, además de que el envío fue rápido)
