Summary: I have already recommended the Sony DJ-Style headphones to several friends. I owned a pair of the previous style of Sony's DJ headphones that were silver. They were just as great. The only difference was that the cord was spiral and longer. Wish they didn't change that feature.
Excerpt: Got these to replace a pair of worn out MDR-V500 phones that got a lot of use over nearly a decade. That model's no longer available, so I expected the "replacement" would be at least as good, if not better. Instead of the nicely balanced, true-sounding phones, I got these bass-heavy phones with a short cord. I use them for on-air radio work. They're simply not as good as the phones they "replaced".
Excerpt: If you want to get good headphones that are good quality and not cheap, then these are the ones for you. When I first started looking for headphones I looked for beats, but you can get better headphones way cheaper. The MDR-V55 by Sony come in many different prices, but it is available for less than $100 so it is relatively low priced, and the sound quality is amazing! I especially love the bass! Which isn't overpowering, but nice!
Excerpt: I was researching for headphones for a long time. I finally decided on these after about a year a research. ( a year because i planned on buying them then something came up) I finally made my decision after seeing many reviews say these beat even the $300 beats. And went to a Sony store to try the sound for myself. I was purely amazed. Putting these headphones on was an experience.
Excerpt: I bought these cause i tried out the v55s and thought these were a better version. These are nice to look at and the sound is nice at resonable volumes but if you crank it up then everyone in the room can hear you and it gets really distorted but then again im not trying to destroy my eardrums anyways so im good. The plastic is creeky and makes alot of sounds as you try to adjust.
Excerpt: I've wanted these headphones for a while, since I first heard about them on youtube. I am very satisfied with them. I've been a Sony fan for a while. I'm typing this review up on my Sony laptop. I've always knew Sony makes quality products, so far they've never failed. I've been looking for a great pair of headphones with amazing bass. I bought three pairs of Sony headphones within three months. These headphones are perfect. I strongly recommend them.
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. The only thing i dislike is the comfort but i got used to it..
