  • Summary: First off, let's just get the negatives out of the way.  The MDRMA900s feel and look like $20 headphones.  I have no idea what Sony was thinking when they designed these.  They feel and look cheap.  The cable is also extremely long and thin.  It does not exude quality.
  • Pros: Open, clear sound. Detailed and refined. Nice tight bass with plenty of texture. Superb soundstaging and imaging. Very comfortable and light.
  • Cons: Flimsy build-quality. Extremely long and cheap cable.

  • Summary: The MDR-MA900's the current the top model in the latest open-back line-up from Sony. While  the latest  generaraion is definitely not the greatest with a distinctly less "hi-tec" vibe then the previous SAx000 models (as perhaps can inferred from the one-digit-less suffix and the of course a much...
  • Pros: Can go loud with harsh recording with little or no penalty, Grain-free; Very convinciong sense of space for out-of-head imaging
  • Cons: Some forwardness on lower mids lowers transperancy; Too polite treble

  • Summary: I actually just bought this headphone and expect it to perform well.   However, when I compare it to my Beyerdynamic T90, or even my DT990 pro, this headphone actually lacks a bit of the analytical capability.
  • Pros: Wide Sounstage, well defined instruments and vocals, neutral sounding, Very Comfortable
  • Cons: not too good in terms of analytical capability, not so exciting to listen to

  • Summary: Sony MDR-MA900 Review In the past I compared the Sony MDR-MA900 to the then similarly price AKG K612 Pro. I'm doing this review because I have the MA900 in my possession for a certain amount of time and I came to a better understanding exactly why I felt the way I do about the MA900 compared to the...
  • Pros: Comfort, Build quality, Pleasing warmish neutral sound signature, Easy to drive, Not source or amp finicky(also a con)
  • Cons: Grainy and veiled sound, Limited scalibility, Lacks refinement, Not the most coherent

Grandi cuffie per grandi qualità

  • Summary: Oggi parleremo delle MDR-MA900. Ciò che subito risalta all'occhio è il design e le sue forme leggere. A primo impatto si può pensare che a causa della grandezza delle cuffie si può pensare che nel complesso pesino molto, invece non è cosi.
  • Pros: .
  • Cons: Troppo grandi .

Great comfort

  • Summary: I bought this headphone for gaming, so the comfort was my first priority. For this purpose it is great, it can be worn for long period of time without strain on the ears. The sound quality is also OK, but it can not replace a high end AKG (or above).

  • Excerpt: У наушников очень интересная конструкция - фактически это две небольшие колоночки, которые подвешены возле ушей. Причем система крепления очень лёгкая, давление на голову минимальное, а на уши его нет вообще. В итоге это самые удобные и ненапрягающие наушники которые у меня когда-либо были.
  • Pros: Очень удобные, совершенно не давят ни на уши, ни на голову.
  • Cons: Низких частот мало, не хватает самого нижнего баса.

Sehr guter Klang, aber zu groß für kleine Ohren

  • Summary: Bisher hatte ich einen Sennheiser um die 90 Euro, mit dem ich nie zufrieden war, weil er im Vergeleich zu seinem Sony-Vorgänger einfach schlecht klingt. Der Sony MDR MA 900 Hifi klingt wirklich sehr gut und natürlich. Da hört man sogar einzelne Instrumente heraus.
