from Buffalo, NY

Got these to replace a pair of worn out MDR-V500 phones that got a lot of use over nearly a decade. That model's no longer available, so I expected the "replacement" would be at least as good, if not better. Instead of the nicely balanced, true-sounding phones, I got these bass-heavy phones with a short cord. I use them for on-air radio work. They're simply not as good as the phones they "replaced".

Headphones that have swag!


from Cincinnati, Ohio

If you want to get good headphones that are good quality and not cheap, then these are the ones for you. When I first started looking for headphones I looked for beats, but you can get better headphones way cheaper. The MDR-V55 by Sony come in many different prices, but it is available for less than $100 so it is relatively low priced, and the sound quality is amazing! I especially love the bass! Which isn't overpowering, but nice!

One of the best purchases I have made in my life!


from West Palm Beach, FL

I was researching for headphones for a long time. I finally decided on these after about a year a research. ( a year because i planned on buying them then something came up) I finally made my decision after seeing many reviews say these beat even the $300 beats. And went to a Sony store to try the sound for myself. I was purely amazed. Putting these headphones on was an experience. The sound was full, the bass was strong, but not over powering, and the highs and lows hit just perfectly. You CAN'T go wrong with these headphones. I love them and use them everyday! I hope this helps with your purchase!

DJ Perspective: Best headphones I've ever used.


from Naples, FL and Tampa, FL

In ten years of my DJ experience, this headphone set from Sony is the greatest-value pair I've ever come across. Hands down. Great, great work, Sony.

Good headphones but hurts to wear


from fort campbell,ky

I bought these cause i tried out the v55s and thought these were a better version. These are nice to look at and the sound is nice at resonable volumes but if you crank it up then everyone in the room can hear you and it gets really distorted but then again im not trying to destroy my eardrums anyways so im good. The plastic is creeky and makes alot of sounds as you try to adjust. I have had these phones for about 3 days now and im still trying to get used to the lack of cusioning, the diameter of the cans are really wide and i think sony should have just went with around ear instead of putting this on ear... some of my ear has cusion and some parts feel the hard plastic underneath... they should have put more cusioning. I bought these so i am gonna use them but i would have been happier with the v55s.
