Booooooom Giveaway: Sony High-Resolution Bluetooth Headphones


This week’s giveaway is courtesy of Sony! They sent me out a pair of their latest Bluetooth headphones and there’s nothing basic about these. The headphones are high-resolution compatible meaning they can handle audio files higher quality than mp3 (FLAAC etc), and are wireless (Bluetooth and NFC syncing).

I have two pairs to give away (one for Canada, one for outside of Canada). So if you’d like to snag a pair of these leave a comment below and tell me: What’s the first song/album you’re going to listen to with these headphones? Also, make sure you tell me what city you live in! We’ll pick two winners in two weeks.

I think my parents got the correct answer, though, but I remember myself trying to read the disc cover – Here is where I got my English-nonsense-syndrom, which still appears from time to time, also when I’m not aware of it. Gotta love that. Please, spice up my life by giving me these nice pair of headphones!

    Honestly I would probably listen to something recently recorded by one of my friends. After (idealistically), I would invite them to listen to their own album in a way they probably wouldn’t have been able to otherwise afford.

  • Erykah

    Saintseneca ~ Dark Arc

  • ana

    “yossi, hezki and yona,” album of yossi bonai. Israeli popular nestolgia….that’s what I’m listening to right now. i don’ think it will garner me many ‘cool’ points. I work in a music archive and I would use them here, instead of my little ear buds. It’s not what everyone else listens to, certainly.

    I live in Philadelphia.

  • Andrew Dobson

    hey booooooom!

    I’m living in Toronto. I need some new headphones, these look pretty swank. If I were to win them, the first album I would listen to start to finish would be DO MAKE SAY THINK – Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn

  • Sthlmo

    Over & Over by Hot Chip. A good test for any headphones :)

    Stockholm, Sweden

  • Goodie Mob… Black Ice. From one of the most underrated hip hop albums ever… Still Standing.

  • h kmkr

    To the album ‘Father Creeper’ from Spoek Mathambo, since I only own some not-so-good headphones I haven’t been able to really hear the magical subtle sounds. Also the Kirk Spencer remix of Benin City’s ‘Bus’, that’d be wild.

    Soest, Germany

  • Manro Bnz

    Hi Jeff,

    Just recently listened to James Blake for the first time. Had no idea what I was missing. I’d probably just load a couple albums on repeat and draw for days.

  • Ian G

    Oh, definitely has to be Tomboy by Panda Bear. It is one of my favorite albums, but more importantly it is a sonic masterpiece. His layering of sound is extraordinary and the songwriting is timeless. The instrumental to the song Alsatian Darn, for example is infused with granulating voices harmonizing behind the guitars and percussion. When the vocals are playing these jarringly monstrous voices sound more like reverb, but the slightest nuances of a voice is hovering in the far back. It is an album that is timeless, and touches the high watermark of fidelity. I’m from CA, USA.

  • Cleveland, TN
    FKA twigs—LP1

  • Herry Peppitt

    I’d probably have to go way back and do Album: Dark Side of the Moon – Pink Floyd because it just sounds soooo good on quality speakers.

    I like in Sydney Australia.

  • Tom H.

    Laurie Anderson
    Big Science – O Superman
    Kalamazoo, Michigan

  • Blanali Bacm

    Definitely it will be Aphrodite’s Child – 666… long time without listening to it, and it will be perfect to re listen a recording master piece

His voice is so perfect yet I can only imagine the quality of the sound, the notes in the music. YES it most certainly would be a lifetime of not self-destructive “escape” yet one to enrich the spirit, outlook on life through the lyrics, tones oh the voice..every time I’ve listened to David’s songs I have always learned something else about human nature-and yes I will be wishing. Thank you for your patience in considering me for this awesome gift. I would cherish it forever.

  • Sony is a consistent player in its best picture quality and it sound systems such as headphones, earphones etc. Sony headphones has always been soft for our ears and give a high music experience. Now, with the entry of these High Resolution Bluetooth Headphones it would blast the market with its sound quality. Sony always sell out their products with its quality and performance in terms of its surround sound.

    The Morning by The Weeknd

    My 21st birthday was this January. I’ve been drinking at least twice a week since then.. I always make sure to get home safe and know my limit. I have a routine for the day that follows; get plenty of rest, approx: 12 hrs, eat and then eat again, look at texts, snapchats and calls that took place, and finally I just listen to this exact song as I drive home after a night of bad decisions with a smile.

    And since it was his birthday last week and I didn’t got him anything because we have been short on cash since we moved do Amsterdam, the timing would feet like a glove.
    He would probably go for some Dream Theater as first song. Nothing fancy but it’s what he likes.

    “Giorgio by Moroder” off Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is my current go-to for testing what truly great headphones can deliver. Love that track… the historical evolution of the sound, the layering of the electric piano that comes in as the bass line begins to pop. But most of all the superb drumming of Manu Katché throughout just kicks ass – solid in the pocket, but with bursts of splash and rumble that make me feel like Rocky Balboa reaching the top of those stairs. Just a triumphant ride all the way to the end. Probably why it’s my favorite track to finish a run at the gym – no matter how I feel when it starts, everything feels better at the end of it.

    Blondie – The Best of Blondie – Vinyl (International Version – I gotta have “Denis” on there).

    I know greatest hits albums are kind of cheating but this record is my official “test a new sound system” record. A ton of sonic variety, depth…big sweeping songs and little raw ones, too. People sort of forget about Blondie but they’ve got a crazy bunch of good songs. Close your eyes and it’s like listening to an 80s movie (Union City Blue!).

    I have a great album by Blue Stone Group named Worlds Apart that is absolutely awesome. Two of the singers have mesmerizing voices and, at times, it takes the best headphones to understand their words as well as the words of the backup singers. I truly need some high end headphones because I listen to all types of music from Bach to Boston to Kitano to Shania to…you get the idea.
    I live in Long Beach, CA. Thank you for the chance to win the Sony headphones.
