  • Summary: These are terrible headphones for the money, with a very colored frequency response, bloated bass, and an overall muddy and indistinct sound. If you're interested in these, you owe it to yourself to check out the far superior Sony MDR-V6, which is an excellent headphone at the typical discounted price. The Sony MDR-V6 is so much better than the V600s I can't imagine why Sony still makes the V600s.

  • Summary: I'll start with durability. These 'phones are now going on their 13th year. If you want headphones that will last a generation, here they are. They've been dropped, kicked, thrown, sat on, and everything in between, yet the only thing that was ever wrong with them is that the earpads wore out. Luckily these are available from Sony's parts website, and are not a pain to switch. That being said, these were my first pair of halfway decent headphones.

  • Summary: I'm largely disappointed with these cans; perhaps my expectations were a bit too high going into the purchase, though I'd had pleasant experiences with floor-model Sennheisers in the past, all of which were roughly in the same price bracket. That's not to say that these are "bad" cans, they're just not "great" cans. The bass, on its own, sounds relatively good; it's not very deep, but it packs adequate punch.

  • Summary: I bought these headphones before I ever became a headphone enthusiast. At the time, I had a little extra cash in my pocket and I just bought a new portable CD player and needed some new phones. At the time, I had only listened to cheap phones (with exception of about 2 minutes of listening on my uncles Stax system). I purchased the phones not knowing anything about them. I Just look at the headphones to choose from, and since this was best buy, it was mainly all earbuds.

  • Summary: You guys are crazy. The are excellent headphones. I admit, their imaging for bass leave something to be imagine, but they're headphones, and they cost under $100. I've been using these on my computer and portable unit for around 5 months now and I am very pleased. I have used many other models (my other primary pair of headphones is a Grado SR-80 model.

  • Summary: I bought MDR-V6's 10 years ago after they topped Consumer Reports tests. They worked great, and I recently planned to replace them with the successor model, the MDR-V600. The cushions were bigger, leaving more room for my ears. However, one was pressed against my ear more than the other - they felt odd that way. While the bass was better than my 10 year old headphones, the V600's lacked clear treble reproduction.

  • Summary: When I bought this set in March, I thought they were excellent. But now, I find them nothing special, for the $100 price tag. The upper mids and lower treble are missing, there is some mid-bass emphasis (but no more than an average set of good-quality headphones). Also, they are a bit bulky and heavy; they induce sweating and may slip out of position when you turn your head. These phones are built to last--but that isn’t enough of an advantage to recommend them.

  • Summary: I paid $100US for these cans and wished I would have bought two more V300s instead of the V600--or saved up another $100US for the V900. These are OK, but not exceptional. This is to correct a previous 5-star rating back in June. The midrange is a bit muffled and uneven, and there is a slight echo in its sound. The bass-upon closer examination and compared to the headphones listed above in the "Similar Products Used"-is a bit cr***y; it’s "punchy" rather than deep.
