Sony – a diversified corporation with solutions for everyone

Currently the third-largest electronics company in Japan, Sony offers headphones for virtually all areas. Especially hi-fi enthusiasts like to find what they are looking for at Sony, but Sony headphones can also be found in the DJ sector and music studios.

Sony History

In 1958, the name was changed from „Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo K.K.“ to „Sony Corporation“ – the starting shot for a company that went on to make history. As the inventor of the Walkman TPS-L2 in 1979, Sony laid the foundation for mobile audio and this „liberation blow“ still echoes until today.

How good are Sony headphones?

Some Sony headphones are still among the best headphones you can buy in the consumer segment. Their sound is balanced and powerful, and the active noise cancelling of Sony headphones is also among the best noise cancelling on the market.

Sony’s over-ear headphones of the WH-1000X series have secured top positions in the top lists in terms of features, sound and noise cancelling, and not only in our country.

The current top model, the Sony WH-1000XM5 (review), not only shines as a functional giant (quick attention mode, speak-to-chat function, fit and air pressure sensors), but also delivers active noise cancellation (ANC) that is beyond any doubt.

Those who prefer in-ears will also find top headphones at Sony: the Sony WF-1000XM4 (review), like their big over-ear brother WH-1000XM5, offer a variety of configuration options, very good sound and effective noise cancelling.

If you prefer something even smaller, lighter and more eye-catching, you should put the „delicate“ Sony LinkBuds S (review) in your ears: These True Wireless In-Ears are remarkable headphones. Not only do they look contemporary in terms of their style and design, but you’ll also look in vain for the extensive features in the competition in the 200-euro range.
