Our Verdict If you are looking for comfortable, portable, on-ear headphones these are fine all-rounders For Very comfortable good all-rounders Against A touch too laid back Reviewed on 27th July 2010 Compared to similar, but more expensive on-ear headphones, the closed-back Sonys are the most comfortable we've worn in a while. The whole ear-pad sits snugly against your ears, as opposed to less agreeable designs that feel like they're clamped on your head. The 570LPs are also visually alluring, mixing modern and old-school design. Sonically, they're no match for the likes of the Audio Technica E555 or Grado iGrado 'phones, but they're good all-rounders. There's no major issue to be had with high or low frequencies; they're just a little laid back and can't excite enough to justify five stars.
