I'd very like it. Sony has long experience very well in sound. God job SONY.
SONY headphones one of top two in business, just like there wireless speakers!

It does boost the volume and so on, but yeah... Doesn't give you the benefits of actual audio hardware. It's an band-aid as its best, that's it.
Looking good for 130 but i use Razer Kraken thats something awesome. Bought them discounted from 120 for 55 euros.

Agree that during walking it's not suitable, but sometimes we really want to dive in the music, hear every frequency with cristal clear reproduction as producers intended, good sound stage and stereo separation especially when listening to live concerts.
When i listen to Scorpions Acoustica concert on open back headphones, i just cannot express the feelings woth words. You need to try and you'll never get back to these marketed headphones, you will learn that your life and your ears deserve more care and quality :)
For walking and running i think JLab Omni is fully sufficient and really good. It was around 70$ 2 years ago, supports Aptx all the time, have good punch and battery life.

Another crap hits market with "bass" oriented. Please do yourself and your ears a favor, buy some affordable Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser or Audio-Technica wired headphones, invest in some budget portable amplifier and enjoy your music listening session in good and balanced quality.
I'm xperia user already for 6 years but never purchased their overpriced headphones.
Had a Sony phone for a few months. It had Poor build quality for a high price. Won't go for Sony again, headphones or anything. When the cheap ones are broken it's not as painful.

High quality cushions can help a lot, using quality memory foam with identical pressure, almost no matter how you wear them. Though, getting used to the pressure takes time and of gets really painful at times.
I like on ear for the two points you made plus the superior sound isolation.

General consumer standpoint? Under 100 is probably low end and anything above is mid then the high ends consumer stuff tends to be around 300.
For people after enthusiast and professional stuff then I'm sure there are plenty of headphones for thousands of dollars but they're not your typical headphones and would very much be in the high end category regardless.

For example, Sennheiser HD800s headphones cost about 1300 euros and going above that price, you probably won't get a "reasonable upgrade" - I'd say. But these 100 euros costing ones aren't expensive, let alone not even close to being high-end. The sound is what 100 dollars gets you, definitely not high-end.

It's based on the range of models available in the market rather than what an individual can or cannot afford. While one could leave out the outrageously expensive ones, the fact remains that most truly good headphones only really cost above $1000 or so, with the merely good ones at around $400 or more. $130 is chump change in the grand scheme of things.
Most people have a flawed understanding of what good headphones should cost, which is based on flawed understanding of what good sound is. Most people are happy with the sound of cheap headphones and think $100-200 headphones are expensive. It's a flawed perspective based on ignorance and it's best if people learned what good sound really is and how much it actually costs rather than live in their bubble.

Just because there exists headphones that cost 2-3 thousand (such as Final Audio's headphones), it DOESN'T mean that 130 is entry level. It's mid-to-high end.
