For me, choosing the right pair of headphones is really important. For me as a musician, it's crucial I can rely on headphones that work for me in ensuring I'm hearing exactly what I need to and, just as importantly, exactly what I don't. For me as a commuter, wherever I might be going, if I choose to listen to music on the move I've made that decision knowing that that's all I want to hear, without any frustrating background noise accompanying the tracks in my ears.
Sony's latest range of headphones ensure that I can make the right choice depending on my lifestyle. So much effort goes into music production yet this is wasted on so many who play music directly from their mobile phone, laptop, or through low-quality headphones. The Prestige headphones from Sony's latest range are perfect for someone like me who doesn't want to have to sacrifice sound-quality but wants to remain subtle with comfortable in-ear headphones. For the commuters on the Underground, in noisier environments, or just for those who like to show the world they love their music, I love the simple design of Sony's 'Travel' headphones which boast a 99% noise-cancelling feature - perfect for blocking out the world around you and enjoying music for its sole purpose, and the reason it was created in the first place.
As a musician, working in either the studio or when playing at home, the quality of sound should not be lost due to a poor pair of cans. That's where the Prestige Headband model comes in. As a top-end market contender without the painful price tag to go with it, no quality is spared in these musician-suited headphones; I was particularly impressed that they had been developed in a unique partnership with music engineers, which offers the piece of mind that people from my industry have put their stamp on something that's so important when I'm working.
It's so easy to settle for a cheap pair of headphones, but where Sony is so appealing in price really doesn't affect the quality of the product, and there's such huge variety in their range to suit not just every pocket but every requirement. I think that's what's so impressive; Sony understand the many different expectations consumers have when they listen to music these days, and the different environments this may be in. If you're in the market for a pair, why not see what Sony's latest range has to offer.
