Excerpt: These headphones are extremely comfortable and great for everyday casual listening. I think they could be a bit brighter, but I'm generally listening to low/moderate volume at work and enjoy the sound quality. They lasted many years before I junked them up enough to get a new pair -- this speaks...
Summary: My 17-year-old daughter requested this headphone because I didn't want to spend extra money on a competitive brand. My daughter was and continues to be pleased with this purchase. The sound quality is excellent!
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: This is the third pair of these I've used. The first pair lasted about 3 years before a wire to an ear piece came loose, but even now they still work. I use these at least twice a week for 3-4 hours at a time. Have used them for studio recording, but mostly for live gigs. I still have the second pair also and will continue to use them as the sound quality is still there, but after SIX years, the ear piece covers finally wore off as well as the piece over the head.
Summary: I purchased these headphones after trying a friend's pair. They are super comfortable (I'm not a fan of the round shape that excludes parts of the human ear), and have a nice long cable that makes it easy to move around while wearing them. The reversable cup makes it easy to fold up and cue without the effort of putting the pair on fully and excluding the sound of the outside world.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: The Sony MDR-V600 is the best bang-for-buck full size headphone available. After comparing them to at least a dozen of its competitors, it was obvious that the MDR-V600's were the best choice. For some other brands, you'd literally have to shell out $200 for something comparable. I use them mostly for on-line studying, but they're also great for listing to music at home. However, they're too large to use comfortably while exercising.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Lightweight, Rich Sound
Summary: I am a professional DJ and I used these nightly for 10 years, and they still work great. They have large drivers in the ear cups for super bass. After a few years however the covering on the head band and ear cups will start to come off, no biggie. I would not recommend folding these into their "compact" position. The collapsible hinge on these isn't that strong. If you leave them as you see in the picture you will get years and years of use out of these.
