Summary: well i got mine just now, and from hearing with it some dif' styles, and dif' audio formats on my pc, i have to say that they are not the best thing u could get, but they r ok though, they are too light on the head, the ear units are very comfortable and big, from a small test iv done with my hands, they seem to be good for recording from the sealed acpect, they fold to a small size, and overall they are a nice, comffy, and sounding good, FOR A ONE DAY EXP' WITH THEM.
Summary: I love the sound quality, as a radio personality it is a must that I can hear myself with total clarity. However they need strengthen the cord, and make the ear pieces stronger. I find myself buying a new pair every year because the cord wears out or the ear piece breaks.
Summary: Initially I bought these headphones for home recording music on my PC. I found the phones a little on the heavy side and pinched my wide head, but after they broke in a little the ergonomics were fine. For recording music, these phones tended to color the music a little towards the bottom end. However, now using them for ham radio, they are exceptional for discerning weak signals etc.
Summary: I do like the sound of them. I couldn't stand to have them on for too long of a time. They are very heavy and slip around a lot. the cups are made of a kind of leather that is slippery, and the weight of them doesn't help matters. They are very comfortable and have a quality feel though. I usually use these or for long periods my e2c sure ear plug style headphones. I only gave them a 4 only because of the slipping on your head problem.
Summary: I've had Sony MDR-V6s for about 12 years, and I was looking for an upgrade. The Sony MDR-V900HD seemed to fit the bill, and I wanted to love these.
In many ways, I was not disappointed. Good comfort, isolation. The clarity of the mids and highs is exceptional. I can see why people that buy the V900s love them (or the MDR-7509HD, same headphone, different styling). Their highs and mids have a precision and accuracy that is alluring.
Summary: Got these, as usual, after reviewing good old eHam reviews - of course! I found these on the web - they were offered as refurbished for $49 - a really good deal. They were factory refurbed - came in the original box, warranty card, everything just like new. These are good phones and a huge improvement from my old ones. As others have stated, put them on, and the world disappears. You really do pick up stuff you haven't heard before.
Summary: What's Good ? Whats Bad ? Or Best Summed up as WHAT WENT WRONG!? Simply put ... put your ear right next to your loudspeaker, a good one hopefully, turn it up mildly, and listen ... this is what the SONY V900s' sound like. If you've done this, you'd notice overpowering bass, rather powerful, but flat muddy vocal mid range, and slightly harsh treble. Now, move away from the speaker, and the sound is balanced, deep, open, with good response and stereo seperation.
Summary: First, let me say that I am not an "audiophile". I've never used a headphone amp and I don't know exactly what to look for in an expensive set of headphones, but I do know what does and does not sound good to me. I purchased the Sony MDR-V900's after reading the user reviews on audioreview.com, although I had originally set out to buy a set of Sennheiser or Grado headphones. Let it suffice at this point to say, I *kind* of wish I had bought some Grados.
Summary: I will first preface by saying that this is the first pair of quality headphones I have purchased above the under $50 variety, but I have used and listened to other high end units. These headphones are in my opinion an incredible bargain in their price range. Everything I have listened to is reproduced with incredible vibrance and realism. The sound quality is simply superb. And there is no distorsion even at high levels. Others have complained about the bass.
