Pros:Very good quality of sound and attractive
Cons:Too bulky, impractical size
The Bottom Line: Just to reiterate my point, notwithstanding the size and weight this product is well designed and good quality for money!
I bought these last year in the airport, and although the sound was of very high quality, i found the size to be impractical. However, if size isn't an issue, i would definitely recommend these. However i bought a pair of these for my children last year and they have both loved them - a perfect christmas present. For children size and weight is not much of an issue. They weigh around the same as a heavy novel. The packaging is lightweight but rather unnecessary in my opinion, what a waste of the environment! The actual headphones were reasonably comfortable to my ears although in a 5 hour plane journey the weight of the actual product pushed down on my head a bit and became rather uncomfortable. Moreover, would not recommend with a cartilage piercing. My experience overall of the Sony MDR-IF240 Wireless Headphones was excellent but dampened by the bulkiness of the impractical materials chosen. I would recommend spending money in the £10-£20 on more light weight and easier to transport. Of course, if you are happy with the weight on your head, its a first class buy! For this price range i do not think the same quality of sound can be achieved.
