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.
Cons: Terrible sound. I bought these headphones at the local WM and after trying them on my stereo equipment I was so disappointed that I returned them next day. It is a shame that Sony would make such a bad sounding product. I just can't believe that some of the posters here say that they sound good. That's to be dishonest.
Summary: There are other better headphones out there. Move on. Don't get these. They will break!!!! I work with a guy who had the same ones, he's broke as well. Sony's warranty sucks.
Pros: One egg for comfort. They are comfortable and easy on the ears.
Cons: Very Cheap material. Miine broke. Sent it in to Sony for a repair or exchange, wow, what a bunch of incompetent people that work there. Don't expect it to get it back, repaired or exchanged. Advice: Move on and find a better brand for headphones. There is nothing better in audio quality than your cheap 5 dollar headphones form walmart.
Summary: My old headphones (Panasonic RP-HT202) started to fall apart after 10 years of listening to music at work so I thought I would try something new when I saw these Sony headphones at local store. When I listened to my friend's excellent $95 Grado SR80 I thought my RP-HT202 are not good at all, but in comparison to SONY MDR-V150 my old headphones (which were also around $20 when I bought them) sound excellent.
Cons: Very poor, muffled sound quality, If you like music, don't distort it and skip these headphones. People raving about quality of sound apparently never hear decent headphones.
Summary: I'm something of a music freak on a very tight budget. This, in combination with the fact that I was in a hurry to get a new pair and didn't do my homework, is why I shelled out 28 bucks for these V150's.
What can I say? They stink. Since these are on-ear instead of in ear, comfort is going to be less than the circumnaural type, but these are especially bad, with an extremely tight fit that renders them painful after about 10 minutes, especially if you wear glasses.
Summary: I have gone through numerous pairs of cheap headphones over the years and this was the last pair. I bought a quality pair of headphones from NewEgg and promptly threw these away. Buy a quality pair of headphones and you will not be disappointed. Your music/movies will be a whole new experience and you won't have to buy a new pair every six months or so.
Cons: Noise isolation, sound quality, durability. Extremely painful to wear for prolonged periods of time
