Excerpt: Okay these are awful soundwise. They have a really nasty spike in the higher mids 2k region and extreme rolled off treble and very bleh sounding bass. This gives music a very artificial rough harsh sound nothing is pleasing and nothing is accurate about it's sound some music will sound okay on it but 99% of music sounds bad.It's almost like someone EQed it to sound as bad as it can. Other Sony headphones don't sound good either.Although they sound better than these.
Summary: I am so upset with this over-priced headphone. I was excited with it for a short while and then I realized that the wire is weak where you plug the headphone into the audio equipment. The music gets cut off on my left ear and I have to juggle the stupid wire around. I went out of my way to get an expensive headphone thinking this problem would not occur but, alas, I am very disappointed. Don't waste your money.
Summary: I have these and an older pair of V-600's. The V-600's sound better in any system than these do. The V-6's are tinny with too much upper mids, and vague in the bass, with poorer image and clarity compared to the V-600's. I'm sorry I bought the V-6's. No matter how good your system or headphone amp (I have a Creek OBH-11 amp, and three different high end CD players), the V-600's are simply better headphones all around.
Summary: For years I have been hearing nothing but praise about this product. I bought them. I will not lie to you- they deliver fantastic sound and I was very, very happy with them... UNTIL THEY BROKE. I'm very careful with my audio tech and the right driver just stopped working, rendering these monitors useless. I tried to contact sony but all they did was deliver the worst customer support I have ever had the pleasure of recieving. Big no-no.
