New Unboxing: Sony WH-CN700N BT/ANC Over-Ears

Until I finalize how I want to approach posting headphone reviews (I really don’t want to write “syrupy treble” and “lush” and use effusively flowery descriptions), we have another text-and-pictures unboxing, the most objective part of an audio review 🙂 This time the subject/victim is the Sony WH-CH700N ANC/BT over-ears with 3.5mm input as well.

For more of our unboxings, these are the headphone unboxings (over-ear, on-ear, earphones, earbuds, etc) and these are the unboxings of Everything Else (DAPs, DAC/amps, earpads, accessories, etc).
