Summary: I'm comparing these to similar heaphones from Panasonic and Philips, and a pair of earbuds from Panasonic. All similar prices, $10-25. The design is poor, they are adjustable in size but they can't fit my head very well.
Summary: At $35 you are wasting your money on these guys. The low end is quite pronounced, but the high end response is crippled by anything with bass in the program material.
Pros: Comfortable for long periods of wear. I've had this pair for 5 years and they still work just as they did when I bought them. Nice thick cord.
Cons: The claim to go up to 22khz is valid only if you are playing a sine wave. They is a significant dip in response between 7khz and 8khz. Anything with a dose of sub-low mid in the program and the hi end is DRASTICALLY cut. These guys get super blurry in the top end even at low volume.
Excerpt: I bought this pair of Sony MDR-V150 Stereo Headphones for office use to replace my ear plug style Sony earphones. I bought it for RM70 (US$21.50) after some recommendations from the Sony salesperson. My main requirement for a headphone is that the cord must be at least 1.5 meter in …
Excerpt: Music is huge in my household. Ever since I was a child, there was always music playing. So music is more than just sound for me. So, I purchased some nice headphones (well, which was what I thought) for my Ipod. For the first few weeks, the sound was …
Excerpt: These are the best headphones! They are comfortable to wear , fit good , and are very light feeling. You really forget that you are wearing them. They are excellent headphones that really work great. I use these with my laptop and iPod , and I’m very satisfied with …
Summary: I have had this headset for several years. I was great until I broke one of the ear piece supports. I originally paid $20 and it is still available in the mid $20 range. This is NOT a $99 headset.
Summary: Flimsy, but overall decently durable as long as they are not abused. I bought mine for a lower price at another dealer 10 years ago. I know they are discontinued, but still popular. I love them. They are my favorite headphones in the <$30 category.
Pros: Comfort, Price, Sound quality, Value. Solid low frequency response.
Cons: Somewhat fragile, Ear pad coating flakes off with wear.
Summary: I have owned my pair for years. Every so often I buy a new pair of headphones(usually under $30) and I always end up giving them away because these old things just have such higher quality sound. You cannot go wrong for a budget pair.
Summary: I contacted Sony and they will not fix/replace them for free. They have an exchange program for $14.xx that is not worth it if I have to pay again to receive a product that will most likely break again.
Pros: Comfortable and exactly what I wanted.
Cons: After 5 months of light use, the plug no longer has a connection to the wire. I must wiggle the wire to get any sound from them(not corrosion on the connector). A wire inside the plug is loose.
Summary: Having seen all the great reviews on here, I ordered a couple of sets. Yes, they DO sound excellent, and come with a nice adapter for 1/4" jacks. For my taste, the earpads are too small. I prefer the type that cover the entire ear, such as the JRC ST-3. I found a seller on eBay selling them for
