Excellent

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Has great smooth sound and has worked flawlessly for over a year. Even after some rough treatment it has done an amazing job. Never had a serious issue.
  • Cons: They can get a little uncomfortable, but you get used to it. The bass is not as deep as you would expect, but this has not been an issue for me since having deep throbbing bass sounds is not a priority for me.

Clearly brings out the nuances of music.

  • Summary: These headphones are the standard against which to judge noise cancelling headphones for music and voice quality. I don't expect to replace these headphones (the 10 foot cord works well as they span the distance between by computer and my easy chair).
  • Pros: Clear sound, nice dynamic range, neutral equalization. After trying to hear movie soundtracks on cheap ear buds flying with my new iPad, I plugged these headphones into the iPad when I got home. What a revelation.
  • Cons: I do not find the over the ear design all that comfortable, so am leaning towards the on the ear design of the Bose Q-3. Also, the Sony's are too bulky for travel, and do not come with a convenient case to protect them.

Great Headphones

Thumarut V., Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Summary: For sub 100 headphones I think these headphones are a huge improvement to standard earphones that come with the various mp3 players these days. I am NOT an audiophile so I can say for me these headphones are wonderful.
  • Pros: Sub 100 headphones, nice overall balance.
  • Cons: Headphones seem a little "cheap". The only con I really have with the headphones is compared to the Sennheiser hd 280's the construction seems inferior. I'm afraid I'll break these headphones as I plan to take them practically everywhere: home, walking, biking, throw in bags, toss them around etc...

  • Pros: Great sound quality and fit. Good noise noise cancelling. Carrying Case.

good headphones

  • Pros: I find the sound quality great for the price range. The cord length is great, and has solid connectors.
  • Cons: The black covering on the foam ear pads wears down quickly, even with cautious usage. Does not change the comfort or sound quality, just my impression of Sony quality.

  • Pros: I use to own the MDR-V500 and just wore them out after about 4 years. So I jumped on these when they were on sale for 40% off from Newegg. Well I'm not disappointed. Perfect sound, not too much bass, very clear.
  • Cons: The ear cups are a little smaller but not a big deal, and the cord comes down the left side

pretty good

Beracah Y., Newegg
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Sound quality isn't as spectacular out of the box as the other reviewers led me to believe, but then I've only had them for a day, so they haven't completely broken in, and the limiting factor could be the rest of my equipment too.
  • Pros: comfortable, most headphones hurt my ears after a while of use, but these do not, but this could be because my ears fit completely in the cup. Also the sound isolation is pretty good, so i can barely hear things outside the headphones, including myself if I'm talking. sound quality is pretty good...
  • Cons: a bit big, so it is hard to lay in bed and keep them positioned perfectly while listening.

Solid headphones but not perfect

David B., Newegg
17 May 2011
  • Summary: No problem driving them with a Denon AVR-1707 receiver and a Creative Zen. Headphones are very subjective, but so far these are the best I have owned.
  • Pros: 1. There is no doubt that these headphones sound great. Just a great clear transparency to the sound. I have found many details in songs i did not know were there. Generally excellent frequency response including bass. The bass response is... different.... from what I am used to, maybe a little "...
  • Cons: 1. Cord comes down the left side. I know this is personal preference, but for me I prefer the right side since my gear is on that side of my desk, plus when walking around I like to have my mp3 player in my right pocket. But disregard if you don't care about that. 2. Heavy coiled cord. The coil i...
