Still, the Sony MDR-XB950BT Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones is a lot more affordable and better for those that want a large ear pad cushions that fits over the ear. By comparison, the Solo3 Wireless fits tighter on top of the ear itself and can be uncomfortable for people with glasses wearing it for long periods of time.
Unlike many other headphone brands, the Sony MDR-XB950BT Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones supports NFC. Sony is one of the few major brands that aggressively promotes NFC to make it easier to pair its phones with wireless speakers and headphones over Bluetooth by just touching the phones to the audio output device.
The Sony MDR-XB950BT Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones comes with a 3.5 mm audio cable, USB micro-B cable for charging, and some documentation. You can use the 3.5 mm audio cable to connect to your audio player if you don't want to use Bluetooth.
Unfortunately, the Sony MDR-XB950BT Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones that we bought at Best Buy had something loose in the left ear pad. Anytime we walked around with the headphones resulted in a rattle right in the ear, which was not the best out of the box experience for a headphone. After exchanging the headphones for a new one at Best Buy, the replacement one didn't have this problem anymore.
