  • Summary: SONY MPR-MA900 Value At $200-300 they are a steal. They are competing against the much more expensive high-end variants and partly excel at it. Overall, you cannot go wrong with these headphones – 10/10.
  • Pros: Detailed and musical, airy mid and treble, terrific soundstage, comfortable.
  • Cons: Build quality perhaps, it's a Sony though..

  • Summary: I purchased the MA900s to go along with my AKG K702 65 Anniversaries, as I wanted a headphone which didn't require amping and would be a little more musical with synths (AKGs tend to be too honest and 2D and untextured sounding with electronic and synthesized bass, and prefer instruments more).
  • Pros: lightweight, iPhone case-friendly jack, easy to drive, neutral, mid bass, soft treble; airy, musical mids; good soundstage, good with synths
  • Cons: skinny, non-detachable cable; slightly floppy (has lots of magnesium though), sub bass, initial ear pad comfort, sometimes shouty upper mid range

  • Summary: Ill make this short and to the point. The MDR MA900 is a fantastic headphone and even fantasticererer at the price of $200. The soundstage is just unbelievable, trumping cans that cost more than twice it's price (HD650, HD600, DT880).
  • Pros: Soundstage, comfort, midrange, bass
  • Cons: Little dark (for my tastes)

  • Summary: Wow, i am soundwhoring in fps games now, i feel more aware of suroundings, and enemies steps distance, you can easily say the difference between some slightly cheaper and very cheap headphones!!!
  • Pros: Very nice with instrumental music (violin, guitar), modern jazz, classical, psych/stoner rock. Epic soundstage in fps games (quake live, cs: go)
  • Cons: Could be better with some other than instrumental progressive metal music. You can hear distortion on high volumes (80<) in windows 7

  • Summary: The MA900 is “less headphone & more music”. The build is sparse, minimalist and does raise some doubts about durability. The magnesium alloy frame is the backbone holding the plastic enclosed lollipop drivers. The cable is nothing special and I never had issues with tangling.
  • Pros: A polite but engaging presentation, easy to drive, comfort, soundstage, great price!
  • Cons: Build & looks

  • Summary: Source and amp: Using the Objective O2 amp and ODAC combo Build quality and comfort: Headband pad is a little too firm, may need break in. Initially putting them on, the headband is feeling is evidently there but with time it slowly disappears.
  • Pros: Light, engaging, good clear midrange,non-instrusive highs
  • Cons: Padding could be softer, low frequency lacking, nothing special in aesthetics

  • Excerpt: Der MDR-MA900 von Sony ist als offenes Modell nicht für den Outdoor-Einsatz gedacht. Wie der On-Ear-Kopfhörer im Wohnzimmer klingt, zeigt der Test.
  • Pros: Kultivierter, sehr natürlicher Klang, Guter Tragekomfort
  • Cons: Kaum Zubehör, Nicht steckbar
