  • Summary: I have owned these headphones for many years now. They are comfortable to wear for about an hour or so, but any longer and my ears start to get uncomfortably hot. They do fold up nicely but they are just too big to be portable in my opinion. The vinyl on the earpads and headband deteriorated and was a little messy but they still work.

  • Summary: I use these with my Sony CD player. The sound quality is quite good but rather muddy with classical. Now I'm looking for something better.

  • Summary: The Sony MDR-V600 is one of the worst headphones at the $100 price point that I've listened to recently. It delivers hardly any deep bass response; it sounds muddy, honky and lifeless with severely bloated upper bass and lower midrange response, almost nonexistent upper midrange response and harsh treble response. And it's not as durable as it looks, as well. In short, these headphones are not worth even one-fourth of their asking price.

  • Summary: Overall, they are fine. They would be great for traveling (cover your ears, they fold up into a supplied case) and storage. However, see the weaknesses, if it wasn’t for that, I would give them 5 stars.

  • Summary: I'm just an amature, but I have used several headphones in search for the "perfect" one. For $100 these headphones are not good at all. I returned them the next day of their purchase. I use the headphones with my computer which is equiped with a very good sound card. It's as if the headphones can't keep up. The bass is not strong enough (again..for $100).

  • Summary: I purchased a pair of these back in about 1992 with the thought that I was buying my first set of good headphones. I used them for several hundred hours over the next 8 years or so. Never felt they were great, but had no complaints either. Decided to buy something new as felt covering the earpads was becoming worn. I spent about $120 on a pair of also closed Beyerdynamics. I was blown away.

  • Summary: Some of the reviews for these cans just aren't fair. I admit the bass is far from tight, and that they have the usual Sony lack of performance, but for $100, what can you expect? I can't seem to understand the whole deal about weak highs and mids mentioned in many of the below reviews. As with all Sony speakers, you have to pump a lot of power into these to make them sound good. Not a problem for me, seeing that I like my music loud.
