715wZ4 63cL._SL1250_AmazonIf you're in the market for Bluetooth headphones that emphasize bass without overdoing it, you can get a great deal on a pair from Sony.

Available as one of Amazon's "Warehouse Deals," these headphones are an open-box product, but they carry the same A-z guarantee Amazon has on their new products. 

I've written about Warehouse Deals before and have taken advantage of the section to save money for years.

Although they're on the lower end of Sony's Bluetooth headphone line, I tried this pair a few months ago and came away impressed. You can read that review for my full thoughts, but here's the summary: Sony made a bass-heavy pair of headphones that still perform well for all genres of music. 

Hip-hop and pop music sounded better, since those bass frequencies are emphasized heavily in those two styles of music, but I listened to a little bit of everything during my testing period. 

They're fairly priced when new, but this Warehouse Deal reduces them to less than $50, at which point it would be hard not to recommend them. This is especially true if you prefer light on-ear headphones to bulkier over-ear headphones. The latter blocks out more noise, but anyone who values portability should opt for a pair like this.

As I said earlier, I can highly recommend these headphones to anyone who enjoys all genres of music, but prefers hearing more bass. They may lack higher-end features, like active noise cancelling or high-res audio support, but their audio and build quality are well worth this sale price.
