With the Sony MDR-HW700DS headphones you don't just listen wirelessly but in full surround sound, too!

Surround sound for immersive entertainment

With Sony's 9.1 channel Virtualphones Technology, you can now get accurately reproduced surround sound through a pair of headphones! The DTS Neo:X processing offers full 5.1 decoding plus 2 channel surround back and 2 channel front high, for a fully immersive sound. If you don't have space for a full speaker set-up or you simply want to listen without disturbing others, then the Sony MDR-HW700DS surround sound headphones offer the ideal solution.

Superior sound quality
With a powerful DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and High Definition Audio support (up to 192kHz/24-bit) on hand, the Sony offers the potential for superb sound quality with both movies and music. Using 50mm drive units, these headphones offer a deep, powerful sound with a frequency response of 5 - 25,000Hz to prove it.

Different modes for different entertainment
With the mode select system you're able to choose the sound that best suits your source and personal taste. Cinema mode is ideal for watching films and many sports events. For TV you might prefer the Voice mode, especially during documentaries and news items. Finally, the Game mode has been especially developed to enhance the gaming experience.

Stable wireless connection
Unlike some lesser wireless headphones that use IR (infra-red) or Bluetooth connectivity, the MDR-HW700DS uses super-stable 2.4GHz/5GHz Dual band RF (radio frequency). This not only gives a greater range of up to 30m, but also greatly reduces both obstacle resistance and radio wave interference. Battery life is up to 12 hours and the recharge time is around 3 hours.

Connected to entertain
The Sony's base station is not just a signal transmitter, it's also a fully fledged control centre. There are three HDMI sockets, which have the added benefit of passing through 4K signals, making these headphones compatible with the latest TVs and media. ARC (Audio Return Channel) also allows you to listen to the TV's sound through your headphones, without requiring a separate cable back to the transmitter box. Finally, an analogue input is ideal for connecting up to your existing hi-fi system and listening in conventional stereo.

Total comfort
Fitted with generously sized, pressure-relieving earpads and a padded headband, the MDR-HW700DS headphones offer comfortable, long-term comfort. The closed-back design not only helps in reducing sound leakage, but also effectively blocks outside noise. The wireless freedom itself brings added comfort as you never need give a moment's thought to the cable and its routing.

For a truly out-of-the-head listening experience from headphones, the Sony MDR-HW700DS's are a surrounding success!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is regretably not up to expectations Probably asking too much for a pair of headphones. Some sort of cinematic processing is achieved but the listening experience is less comfortable than using speakers. My expectation of good performance in normal stereo mode was very much a let down. These 'phones' are nowhere near as good as mid range competitor models such as my old Sennheiser HD580's. (purchased from Richer Sounds some years ago) I truly wish I had not purchased these despite being an advocate of high end Sony Product in general.
