CNET Editors' Rating
4 out of 5 stars.

The good

The Sony MDR-10RBT is a well-designed Bluetooth headphone, sounds good for the money, and is comfortable to wear. Battery life is rated at a solid 17 hours and the headphones come with a carrying case.

The bad

While the transport controls are well-placed and easy to operate, they're a little prone to accidental button pushes.

The bottom line

The Sony MDR-10RBT gets you about 75 percent of the way to the Beats Studio Wireless for a lot less money.

The overall rating is 8.0 out of 10.
