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: 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: 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.
Summary: I too wish to add my 2 cents regarding these headphones. They are an excellent value, and very comfortable for extended listening periods. I use them for shortwave (AM), SSB, and CW, and the sound is very natural and non-fatiguing. Highly recommended!
Summary: After reading all the reviews on e-ham I looked on Amazon and ordered The MDR-V150 earphones for $14.00 and free shipping.This is the BEST Buy in earphones I have ever seen. Thanks E-Ham and friends... They are Spot on for Ham Radio.
Summary: I picked this up by chance for $19 at walmart to use with my FT-950. Best $19 ever spent on a set of headphones. I have had others and these sony V150's are far superior in sound and comfort. No unwanted white noise like I had with other headphones, just the sounds that you need to hear. Im thinking about picking up a second pair just to have when I eventually wear these out. These are great for radio use.
Summary: I've had $40-$50 pairs of headphones that would break in less than a year, but these just keep going. Kudos to the guys who designed these headphones.
Pros: -Very comfortable, nice bass, good mids, and good highs. - Long, thick, yet durable oxygen-free cord - adapter for connecting headphones to high end equipment - Adjustable settings to fit your 'cranium' per se I've owned these headphones for almost 5 years now and they STILL sound as good as they did new. I've never had a pair of headphones last this long; it has yet to develop a disconnection issue anywhere in the wiring or the headphones themselves.
Cons: Adjustable band appears to be stretched now from excessive use and the ear muffs are beginning to slowly deteriorate from excessive use as well. Part of the band is also cracked, but that was my fault all together. Again, these ARE about 5 years old and I use them daily, so some damage is inevitable.
Summary: Unless you're a DJ or a musician of some kind, this is all you really need to enjoy high quality audio.
Pros: Purchased in 2007 for $20, still have them, still use them. The durability of these things is far beyond any other headset I've owned, bar-none. I've owned pairs I paid twice as much for that didn't sound as good as these. They're light-weight but put in serious sound quality. I use them with my Zune, my Nintendo DS, my computer, and other devices.
Cons: The adjusters are a bit flimsy. I've had to tape them because the plastic broke off, but keep in mind, they're four years old!
Summary: I bought these for $12, and some AKG's for $40 and these are more comfortable and sound better to me. Excellent for watching movies, Tremendous Value, Could be made more durable but sound quality is more important so I can deal with the quality.
Pros: Tremendous Value Sound wise, Very Comfortable, Surprisingly good all around sound quality, Good Bass
Cons: Not the most durable headphones, adequate build quality
