Excerpt: This headphones have pluses, and minus. At first, I loved the headphones, they blocked out most surrounding sounds, were mostly comfertable on my ears, etc.... When I wore them for long periods of time, however, they hurt my ears, especially when wearing glasses. The headphones are a little tight, so they smoosh your ears to your head, and if wearing glasses, the glasses frame is pushed between your skull and ear.
Excerpt: These headphones are good for listening for short amounts of time but if you wear them too long, they can really hurt your ears. They are good headphones and really cut out sound outside the headphones but aren't noise reducers. Are soft on your ears. Are quite big and have really long cord that can get in the way a lot. If you wear glasses you might not want to buy these as they can push your glasses off your face and can be uncomfortable.
Excerpt: Decent sound quality for the price of the headphones. If you really care about sound quality, probably shouldn't go with this headphone though, spend a little more for a better set. Has a cushion that has some nice soft leather/pleather whatever it is... Rests directly on top of you ears, so after prolonged usage your ears start to hurt a bit. I use these at work and does a pretty good job at shutting out ambient sound so I can concentrate well.
Excerpt: I was skeptical about buying this headphone after seeing the price. It was so cheap and Sony's products are always expensive but it turned out to be a decent purchase. I use it at work daily to block out the talkative folks around me. Pros: The sound is clear and crisp. I've used professional headphone which are 10 time more expensive than this headphone and I find that this headphone has just as good of a sound as the expensive ones. Cons: The cord is way too long.
Cheap & dynamic bass headphones with a pleasing sound
9 September 2012
Excerpt: These inexpensive Sony MDR-V150 Stereo Headphones are worth it for the price and offer a dynamic and ranging bass sound. One can easily enjoy music when wearing these headphones and shut out outside noises quite well. It is also lightweight and adjustable for different head sizes. With these in mind, I also encountered quite a few problems with these headphones. Like most headphones, they may irritate you after wearing them for too long (30 minutes or an hour).
Excerpt: Considering the price, these headphones are definitely one of the cheaper ends, and the quality shows it. Despite this, it does have reasonable quality that allows it to redeem itself with many of the shortcomings. First all, the positive things. The sound quality is reasonable for its make, though a bit blurry. I have no complaints about the bass, though the middle and high are a bit blurry, not uncommon on the cheaper end of the headphone market.
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. Perhaps I got a bad pair, but I have yet to find inexpensive headphones that measure up to really good ones for communications like the Kenwood HS-5, and I've tried many.
Durable but the sound quality is muffled and poor.
17 April 2009
Excerpt: These headphones are fairly priced, and have a nice thick cord which makes them quite durable; however, the sound quality is not right for my personal preference. The highs are not crisp at all and i can barely hear them. Everything just sounds like a muffled mess. The bass is way to overpowered and messy. Every vocal or instrument sounds like it's being played through a pillow. Quite literally as i listen to them now....
