Absolutely the worst

KJ4I, eHam.net
3 October 2015
  • Summary: I purchased these headphones a number of years ago. I guess Sony finally discontinued them sense they were so bad. Well recently I decided to pull these out of mothball and replace the ear pads and use them again. I quickly remembered why I had stored them away in the first place.

Excellent sound and comfy

  • Summary: I recently purchased a used metal detector on eBay. The seller included the Sony MDR-V600 headphones, for free. He told me the ear cushions were 'flaky'. He was right. Sony uses a very thin vinyl to give the 'phones a leather 'look'. I took these pads off and threw then away.

Garbage Quality

Albert D., Newegg
31 March 2012
  • Summary: I read reviews on this site with people saying they have owned these for almost 10 years. I just don't see how that is possible with how cheap the plastic is on these. Even if I can superglue these back together I don't see them lasting more than 2 years.
  • Pros: -Very good sound quality. -Bass is above average. -convenient extendable cord.
  • Cons: -Cheap plastic design. These headphones fell a few feet and broke apart. -Typical "Made in China" quality product. Low Durability. - Hold in too much heat.

  • Pros: Good Sound and a decent price
  • Cons: I purchase 3 set of Supra-aural head phones and I liked the Luxa2 the best for a fraction of the price

Fell apart almost instantly

Guy Y., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Folding them puts strain on the plastic piece holding the overear assembly to the rest of the set. This piece fell out on my set -- inadequate glue job? -- and the ear assembly is dangling.
  • Pros: Comfortable Sound is OK. Not great, but OK
  • Cons: Flimsy construction Fell apart after 2 days of use!

Exceptional Headphones

Sarah Z., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Pros: Crisp sound, well weighted, and very comfortable. I've owned a pair for over five years and they're still incredible. I use these for my electric piano and PC gaming, and they're perfect.
  • Cons: Minor fraying of the material covering the ear foam, but after this long I'm not surprised.

almost flat response

Changming X., Newegg
2 February 2012
  • Summary: note that these have long coiled phone cords
  • Pros: almost flat response with a little bit more emphasis on bass, but that doesn't bother me. there's not a part of the frequency range that is over-emphasized, which makes it comfortable for a prolonged time of listening.
  • Cons: a little bit too big for me. I would prefer leather covered cushions.

Great Headphones

Lawrence R., Newegg
28 January 2012
  • Summary: If they fail I'll be sure to let you know.
  • Pros: I've been looking for a set of headphones for late night TV viewing and these are perfect. My wife who is a violinist at the NY Philharmonic was so impressed with these that she picked up 2 sets for her open rehearsals. This is the 3rd set of Headphones I bought online and they are even better th...

Always awesome

Eric T., Newegg
21 January 2012
  • Summary: I have owned 3 pairs of these over the years. They were the standard for DJ headphones for years back in the day. My old pair was dying with tearing on the ear pieces and degrading sound so I replaced them. It literally took YEARS for them to die with constant abuse from me and my toddlers!
  • Pros: Comfortable with clear and solid sound. Keeps outside sound out really well. They've always been a deal at @100 bucks, so if you see them on sale here and Newegg, snag them up instantly like I did!
  • Cons: None.
