What Could Go Wrong?
How Does It Share Your Data?
Sony may use de-identified data for analytics and product improvement. Otherwise, no data is shared or sold to third parties.
- Light and comfortable.
- Great noise-cancelling.
- Good battery life.
Sony seems to do a decent job protecting the personal data of its users as it only shares de-identified data with third parties for product improvement purposes. Its subsidiary, Sony Pictures, was hacked in 2014, but as it is a different company, no personal information should have been exposed. Your data should be safe when using Sony products.
