Summary: I'm sorry to say I have to return these. The sound quality is great no complaints there. The problem I have with these is they really hurt my ears wearing them for more than an hr. at a time. I purchased them to use watching tv programs on my PC, but unfortunately they are not comfortable to wear for this purpose. But love the look and sound quality.
Excerpt: I use these headphones for professional video editing. PROS: The sound range is top-notch for the price point. To get better audio you'd have to spend about double what you will spend on these. Folding cups increase portability for when I need to double-check audio in the field. CONS: The cable is laughably short. I can't even lean back in my chair without dragging my laptop across my desk.
Excerpt: Comfortable fit, good sound quality but for use when professionally DJing the cord is simply too short to get around most booths comfortably and unfortunately you cannot replace or lengthen it
Summary: I really wanted to like these, as they sounded decent, but they were just a little too uncomfortable for me. The top band has zero padding, which is probably more of an issue for me as I have a shaved head. If you have a luscious mop, that Sideshow Bob would be envious of, then you may not have this problem. Anyway, due to the fitting reasons, I am returning these. As they sound great, but that's no good if they are not comfy.
Summary: Generally pleased with this set, I use them for recording at home and they are just fine. They are comfortable and the sound quality is good for the price. Anything other than recording id probably invest in something more expensive for better sound.
Pros: Incredible sounds, looks good, Lead could be longer!
Like the design VERY average sound. Flabby bass and flat no isolation.

Summary: To put this in context i have a pair of in ear earphones (not the bud type but the loose in ear which in my opinion are best design as they allow a good bass) made by Sony. I got these with an old Sony Walkman mobile 10 years ago and are the headphones I compare all others. The clarity of sound and depth of sound is almost perfect with just a slight weakness in punchy bass. I went by the reviews of the MDR-V55 and thought I couldn't go wrong.
Summary: Excellent quality,but have had to add an extension to the lead as Sony have slipped up in not adding a long enough lead to the earphones....Would not buy this product if I had a second chance for that reason...Delivered very quickly though.
Summary: The sound quality as noted in other reviews is very good. However, the external sound exclusion is poor and if you wear glasses they will begin to hurt after half an hour or so. I have used them in the house just listening to music while working which is fine but outside mowing the lawn I could very little of the music. It seems I need to invest in some good sound excluding headphones. The three stars is mainly due to the comfort.
