Sony MDRX05 Reviews

Reviewed by 2 customers


A pretty good pair of headphones.


from Fort. Myers, FL.

These headphones are pretty solid as far as sound quality is concerned. I have noticed that it is lacking in mid-range sound control. They are great for heavy metal, R&B, or Bass driven genres; however they are do not handle acoustic rock or country genre too well. They sound a little flat in this style of music. I have also tested these with classical music. They again feel a little flat. Overall these headphones preform pretty good for the more popular styles of music.
