My old Sony Gold headset finally bit the dust when the infamous hinge break happened on both sides. I needed another pair, and saw that these were now available. I haven’t be able to find a decent headset that gave me independent volume access like the Sony PlayStation headsets where I can change chat volume independently over game volume and vice versa.
These new Sony Gold Headsets rock.
1. No hinges!!!!
2. Way better buttons. The buttons on the older model really sucked, and eventually recessed to far into the headset
3. I get the same nice sound quality, if not better (probably because they are new and my mind is tricking me into thinking they sound better).
4. Soft plush band
1. This is not really a con yet since it is too early to tell, but the ear pads might be the same material as the previous model. I can’t really tell. I really hope it isn’t. My old ones flaked off big time, and I would walk around the house and most likely in public with pieces of the ear pad on my face.
2. If you have a cone head or a tall head these might be a little uncomfortable since the bottom of the ear pads will dig in at an angle behind the jaw (You can test this by sliding the ear pads all the way down and wearing them. Obviously the band will sit way above your head, but you will get my drift)
This is definitely a much needed improvement over the older model, and I would highly recommend them. The sound is amazing, and the headset is comfortable. Please don’t let this be the same material on the ear pads as the previous model.
