The packing or protective case that they come with is quite simple and follows the line of affordability to make. The case is just sa simple clear plastic protective case.
Features of Sony MDRZX110
Bass and sub bass: the headphones have a strong bass feature to them and have some of the sub bass depth. Like other headphones from other brands, they are mid-bass centered, boosted and boomed for their 33mm dynamic driver. But the fine line is that they do put out so much energy with whatever you are watching or listening to.
MIDs and Vocals: Sony MDR ZX110’s have a mid-bass bleed and congestionof mids and lower vocals. EQ mids get far less congested, higher mids don’t gain any crispness and the overall sound keeps on being the same. Their strange recession continues to make them non-fatiguing along with barley any sibilance and they have no piercing peaks.
Sound leaking: their leaking out sound is barley even present, you can crank them up to the higher levels before it could leak out and nearby people could hear. The sound isolation is good but not as strong, you can expect a little bit less efficiently than with other headphones.
Comfort and wearability
These headphones lack a bit with inside padding and in the comfort department but the full plastic construction makes them feel so light weight to the head, and don’t cause any pressure. The ear cups on the headphones move and rotate and the entire thing folds and it makes them pretty foldable so you can adjust them to your liking and comfort.
So, as we all hoped that the budget friendly SONY MDR ZX110 headphones would be a raging success when they are release, with their exclusive features and built-in gadgets. But non the less the sound quality is not the best, the sound come out to poor, dark and muddy. But not all people make a huge difference between the sound quality in headphones, and many are on a budget so they are just looking to find good enough headphones that look very professional and sturdier when you wear them. They do still work very well for their price point. These headphones would be one of those headphones you would buy as a birthday present for a friend or just a pair of headphones you would buy and not worry if they get lost or banged up.
