  • 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).  The imaging is also great, and the best thing about the soundstage is how focused it is.  Neither the vocals, nor the bass are lost in this soundstage (amazing!).    Let's take a break from the sound.
  • Pros: Soundstage, comfort, midrange, bass
  • Cons: Little dark (for my tastes)

  • 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.   Audio quality   I have analyzed these using my laptop, connected to Audioengine D1 DAC/amp, listening to everything from piano concertos and symphonies to hip-hop. The bass goes deep and can be strong when needed without influencing the middle.
  • Pros: Detailed and musical, airy mid and treble, terrific soundstage, comfortable.
  • Cons: Build quality perhaps, it's a Sony though..

  • Summary: Along with the summary below, I have posted a comparison review of the MA900, Audio Technica AD900X and AD1000X here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/654161/review-comparison-ath-ad900x-vs-ath-ad1000x-vs-mdr-ma900-its-still-over-900   I've also got a youtube review of the MA900. If you like the video check out my channel for more reviews :)     Summary:   BUILD   The build of the MA900 is interesting. The headphone feels very light weight and almost flimsy in the hand.
  • Pros: Supremely comfortable, light weight, natural laid back sound, wide soundstage
  • Cons: Lacks a little sparkle, bass slam could be tighter, flimsy feeling build

  • 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. This headphone may not rank high on the build category but remember that it well makes up for it in comfort.The clamping force is delicate, but the headphone sits comfortably on the head – the 70mm...
  • Pros: A polite but engaging presentation, easy to drive, comfort, soundstage, great price!
  • Cons: Build & looks

  • Cons: Thin cable, flimsy build quality, sub bass rolls off, not very good with EDM (or very bass-heavy genres).

Absolutely brilliant

  • Summary: I have an Audio Technica ATH-M50 and ATH-M35, for which I have high regards. These headphones blow both of them out of the water. Vocals are far better than either. The soundstage feels far more wider than the M50. It is also insanely comfortable. My ears never get sweaty or complain. Bass is also quite good for an open headphone. The only negatives are that it feels a bit delicate, particularly the "bass lens".

Super Kopfhörer.

  • Summary: nach über 20 Jahren mit meinem AKG 240 M. musste ein neuer KH her bei mir in die Auswahl kamen dabei nur 2 der phillips X1 und "mein" Sony gekauft habe ich den Sony da der Preis einfach besser war. Klanglich ist der Sony schon eine andere Welt als mein alter AKG240 mehr details und alles ist räumlicher nicht so direkt im Kopf plaziert. er hat auch etwas Bass was beim AKG kaum vorhanden war.

Doch High-End !!

Otto Drabek, Amazon

  • Summary: Verfasser: Ottilie Wollte mich jetzt endlich nach etlichen Jahren von meinem - nicht schlechten - Vivanco Kopfhörer trennen bzw. mir einen neuen zulegen. In einigen Hörproben bei Händlern (wobei die immer weniger werden, die diese Möglichkeit überhaupt bieten) fielen mir damals schon die Sony-Kopfhörer positiv auf. Hauptargument, warum ich mir den 900-er bestellt habe ist wohl der leichte und gute Sitz am Ohr, der auch von allen Lesern gelobt wird.
