Excellent sound and comfy

N4UE, eHam.net
19 September 2014
  • 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.

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...

Wow

Brian H., Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Sony makes some pretty good headsets.
  • Pros: Great sound, never quite had a audiophile headset (or any, for this matter) ever. Delivered everything I needed and more. No complaints whatsoever.
  • Cons: Took ~5 days to get.

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.

Like nothing else out there

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Studio monitor headphones are quite a jump compared to normal consumer headphones. These Sony MDR-V600s will make you enjoy your audio a lot more with such high quality specifications that these possess.
  • Pros: Probably some of the most advanced headphones out there, and what a legacy the MDR-V600 carries. Because of their intended use as studio monitor headphones, they sound absolutely incredible with just about any device I tested, ranging from various media players, to Hi-Fi surround sound equipment ...
  • Cons: The only feasible con that I have about these headphones is the cord length, but this is just a personal sketch of mine and really isn't worth deducting an egg for. The coiled cord is all part in the science that makes them sound good anyway. One specific con that I have is the included storage p...

Awesome legacy

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: My dad gave me his when I was young. When his got to be 10-15 years old (not sure exactly) and padding was deteriorating, I figured I'd get another pair so I could leave those at work. The old ones sound good, and the new ones sound just as good.

Owned for 15 years EXCELLENT

Jeffrey K., Newegg
13 August 2011
  • Summary: I didn't know they were still around. I paid ninety-nine for them 15 years ago. Definitely ordering another set. He can keep the old ones.
  • Pros: Excellent studio monitor headphones. Clear, undistorted, full spectrum sound. I use them mostly for guitar and bass practice. Wish the instruments sounded this good through my amps (which are very high quality as well).
  • Cons: They were 'accidently' stolen by my stepson when he moved out a few months ago. He likes using them for practice as well.
