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.
Summary: After careful review and comparisons. I selected these for their quality, features, and price. I use them mainly for PC music and gaming. And also for DVD music and movies. Read the other positive reviews for their sound qualities and features.
Summary: I have to assume that the negative reviews posted are more a result of these cans being Sony than anything else. The sound reproduction of these MDR-V600s are rather amazing. For $100, you can't do much better. When I purchased these, it was hard to find anything else.
Summary: So I got these babies for free...long story on how. Anyway, I just have to say that they are incredible. This is my first step into quality headphones and I am just simply amazed. I pretty much only used headphones for mp3 listening..
Summary: I've been using my friends Senn's( MDR-570'S) and was impressed. So I went out on a hunt to buy my own, only to discover they can't be found in our fair city. So I tried the Sony's. This time I brought my own CD to listen too.
