Summary: I bought these a few days before 2012 christmas and damn i am still shocked at the amount of bass they have. These are very clear too in the vocals and i really loved hearing guitars in these headphones. The bass doesn't leak into the mids.
Summary: I bought these the first time I came across them at Best Buy. I paid too much for them, but that's neither here nor there considering I was returning a similar pair of headphones that I disliked.
Pros: Sound quality, style, portability.
Cons: Plastic construction, tight head band, ear pads.
Summary: Have had these for 3 months after losing a pair of Pioneer HDJ 500s. Preferred the look and build quality of the Pioneers, but the Sonys look ok and fold up nicely. The HDJ 500s didn't fold, but had one swivelling earcup and came with two detachable cables.
Summary: I see two big positives to these cans:
1/ the sound (nice fun V-shaped sound, a bit forward but not "in your face")
2/ they fold pretty small
As the isolation is not really good, these should be used in places where noise is not an issue.
Pros: The bass is really good without being overwhelming, they fold small, they feel solid
Cons: Poor isolation makes them useless in metro for example. Also, please don't use these in a library.
Summary: First off I would like to say this is my first review and I apologize if I'm not able to go into audiophilic detail about the headphones.
Lows : The lows on this headphone are excellent. The bass is really responsive and punchy.
Pros: Very clear mid-range and treble, decent soundstage, punchy bass
Cons: The earcups are not padded well and get uncomfortable quickly, headband has no padding
The Sony MDR V55 are an all around amazing headphone. I bought them at best buy for $99 which is an amazing price for the headphones they really are. The MDR V55 provide an amazing high to low grade of volume and are all around great for every genre of Music.
Pros: Amazing Autdio, Great Bass, Great highs, amazing Mids, Great lows, Looks slick, Multiple Color Options, Durable, folding function,
Cons: Not very comfortable, cord is not detachable
Summary: Jazz sounds real good on these.
Classic music sounds pretty clear, like when the violin is playing and stuff.
Vocals sound pretty good.
80's sound vibrant.
dubstep/hardstyle, sounds pretty strong and BASS'ee
...now that i think of it, rock... hard metal and screamo...
