About Sony

The Sony MDR-V250V Studio Monitor Series Headphones feature supra-aural design for excellent listening comfort, 30mm diameter drivers for deep bass, high-energy ferrite magnets, reversible earcups for single-sided monitoring, cord-mounted volume control, wide molded headband for long-lasting comfort and stereo UniMatch plug for phone jacks and minijacks.

Sony Features

  • Studio Monitor Series Headphones incorporate high-end materials and advanced engineering; critically clean, exceptionally clear sound for professional and high fidelity applications
  • Reversible earcups enable single-sided monitoring flexibility
  • 30 mm diameter drive units are larger than many headphones for deeper bass, lower distortion and wider dynamic range; bass response extends down to a low 18 Hz
  • 500 mW power handling stands up to day-in, day-out use at high output levels
  • Ferrite magnets for high energy and compact size; help produce ample sound output -- 98 dB/mW sensitivity
  • Cord-mounted volume control for convenient adjustment. You won't have to reach across the equipment rack (or under your coat) simply to adjust the volume
  • Oxygen-free copper cord for maximum conductivity, minimum noise; conducts electricity better than conventional copper
  • Supra-aural design rests lightly on the ear; creates a controlled environment for better sound; driver is positioned the correct distance from the ear canal
  • Wide, molded headband distributes the headphone's weight over a wide area; reduced pressure means comfortable listening for hours on end

Just wonderful


Don't get me wrong. These headphones are perfect! I got them as an option with my stereo and they work great! Couldn't detect a single flaw. Even the cord is long enough for the standard user. I've found them perfect so far and do not have any complaints. Thanks for the cheap yet great product Sony!


Good sound, but cheap plastic


I bought these for everyday listening. I use them while on the treadmill. The sound quality is good. About 6 months after I bought them the left side swivel broke. It's just a piece of plastic. Now the phones don't stay on my head :-(

Sony MDR-V250V Studio Monitor Headphones


For the money this is a great set of cans. Sony builds the best sounding audio cans on the market today. FoRGET Dr Dre's Beats! Thats all you get is BEAT! I bought these cans for the shop, because they are inexpensive, sound good and if they get beat up, who cares?! There are no "cons" here, only "Pros". When you buy low you get low. When you buy the SONY MDR-SA500's, you get all the sound the artist has produced, right to your ears, without the ticket price or standing in lines. Buy a SONY, NOT BALONEY!! Don't get beat. Forget about the "Beats"! Good style, "ain't good sound"!
