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.
Excerpt: I always felt uncomfortable using those earphones that block the air completely. It just feels itchy at times. So i decided to go for the ones that first of all don't invade my ear space. This one is very comfortable as it is so soft over the ears. The sound quality is pretty decent if not awe-inspiring. I use it for my PC and tablets and feels really great with sound & it's looks ! Much happier !
Pros: Decent sound quality, Soft On Ears, Stylish Looks
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. I personally listen to pop and some rock and these have served its purpose really well. Kill me now, but I am a fan of Beats By Dre and really do like Dr. Dre's products.
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: 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.
The packaging was that plastic vacuum pack junk that you have to hack at four times as long as you ever want to just to get inside, and it didn't include any kind of carrying wallet or accessories of any kind.
Pros: Sound quality, style, portability.
Cons: Plastic construction, tight head band, ear pads.
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. The base is also extremely tight and does not interfere with the mid-range much on a neutral EQ, but with a bass-heavy EQ the mid-range will be slightly muffled.
Mids : The mids are excellent on this headphone.
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
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. And this is for me the problem, I cannot use them in transports.
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.
