Excerpt: These replaced their predecessor the Sony MDR-V700DJ. The sound is impressive to say the least, you hear all the small details in your music. These headphones produce a great range of sounds. Your mids and highs are Crystal clear. The bass won't overwhelm you, but it's not missing. It reminds me of the type of bass you would get from a pair of 8 or 10 inch woofers, you get clean tight responsive bass. These ain't 12's. But for the price you can't argue with them.
