WHEN you are forking out $299.95 on headphones, you would expect them to be quality. Which is why it’s such a shame Sony missed the mark with its new MDR-EX750BT h.ear in Wireless headphones. The functionality of the speakers isn’t what lets this product down, it’s the horrible design — although Sony’s product page would have you believe otherwise. “Experience the freedom of wireless listening, coupled with exceptional sound and eye-catching style,” the website reads.

The bright colours do very little disguise the atrocity and even the black isn’t that discreet. Despite my initial disgust with the appearance, I had hoped the headphones had been designed for comfort over style given the website states the “headphones are so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them”. Sadly this wasn’t the case. Wearing the headphones around my neck
