The Sony H.ear On Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones aren’t the first name brand that comes to mind — brands like Beats and Bose get all the attention (though these two are not in the same class as each other). Maybe it’s the Sony’s awkward techy sounding name, replete with its dot in the middle. Beats, you might say, gets more straight to the point. But for the audiophile or just the serious listener who wants a tremendous product, the sleekly designed and technologically excellent Sony H.ear On is a winner.
Thing is, the Sony H.ear On was a winner at $350. And during the holiday sale craze you can find these headphones for around $200 — bluetooth enabled. Amazon has knocked $150 off the price for one of its timed CyberMonday Week deals, meaning you can get the sound of silence for $199.99. BestBuy is promising a price match guarantee, too, so though the Sony H.ear On is listed at $350 there, you can try your luck at the price match. Of the 59 customer reviews on Amazon, the Sony H.ear On Headphones average 4-of-5 stars. A typical positive review reads like this:
“This is a fantastic set of headphones. I say this as someone who stopped buying Sony in 2000. I have had Klipsch in ear (which I love) and Bose, both in and over ear, and Senheisser. The Sony is my favorite in terms of looks, design, and sound.”
