Disappointing

N1KSN, eHam.net

  • Summary: I give these headphones a 3 because they are OK for CW use. As far a phone goes, I found them to be "mushy" in the upper audio frequencies and very disappointing in pulling out weaker signals under poor conditions. If you only talk to stations with 59+ signals, they would be adequate.

a non-sound perspective

  • Summary: Bought these a little under 2 years ago from a best buy store for $16. I used these exclusively on my computer. To be honest, I was pleased with these headphones until this past summer. The plastic on the right side of the headband started to get flimsy.
  • Pros: good sound, good cord length
  • Cons: cheaply made, short warranty

Very surprised...!

  • Summary: I am a Sennheiser man, just needed something to use until the HD-555's came in the mail. Not disappointed and am glad i found something so good so cheap. Will consider Sony three or four years from now or when ever i need a new set of cans.
  • Pros: Very even sound. dose not seem to color the sound much. Very good with Jazz. Bass is not over powering but can be adjusted for your tastes with any EQ be it analog or digital. Anyone who says these have poor treble response should try listening to classical music. Closed back is the way to go if ...
  • Cons: Not many, I like these! At 24 ohmz i thought they would be louder with a PC or an ipod.(loud will ruin your ears!) Had to make my own pad for the headband. (duct tape and an old sock) I do not like having a sock on my head or tape for that matter. Comfort is an issue with these regardless of old ...

  • Summary: I bought these headphones because I needed a cheap pair of supra-aurals to listen to on the bus (I have stretched ears and can't fit my over-ear AKGs over my earlobes with my plugs in. . .not that I would really want to bring them on a bus anyway). In short, these headphones are okay.
  • Pros: Decent sound considering the price
  • Cons: Uncomfortable headband, super long cable

  • Summary: I bought these headphones a while back and I enjoy them somewhat. They have good sound if you need a set of studio monitors on the cheap. I don't think I would recommend them to anyone.
  • Pros: Cheap. Good Range of Audio.
  • Cons: Somewhat uncomfortable. Break easily

  • Summary: These were the very first headphones I bought when I was in primary school. I remember saving up a few weeks to get this pair but unfortunately the cable broke after a few years of use. Fast forward +15 years, I now have a job and starting to get into the headphone world...........so addictive.
  • Pros: Cheap | Neutral | Value for Money | Thick Cabling | Portability
  • Cons: Very Closed Sound Stage | Long Cable | Plastic Construction

About What One Would Expect for the Money:

Anonymous, Newegg
11 August 2008
  • Summary: Reasonable performance, to my ear, is obtained by tilting the entire spectrum equalization curve +3db/octave starting at -6db and 100Hz; even with that correction the performance lacks a certain "crispness" and clarity.
  • Pros: Low price, well constructed, plenty of cord length, reasonably comfortable
  • Cons: Almost no high-end response that I can detect and bass is too heavy....but, for fourteen bucks what do you expect?

Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones

R.Cash, Rate it all!
6 August 2008
  • Summary: I've had these cheap SONY cans for about three years now and the earpiece has finally worn off. Hence I was in the market for a new pair of everyday cans. The SONY studio monitors were my go-to headphones for general use (watching movies/listening to music on my laptop).
