Excerpt: As a Staples employee, I have to say that five months ago these headphones were clearanced out of my store, as well as all other stores in my region that carried them. They went for $79.99 a pop, and were sold out in less than a week. This was actually less than I paid when I bought them direct from Sony for $99.99. The headphones are discontinued by Sony, so I'm very confused as to why Staples is charging full price for these.
Excerpt: For those seeking the highest quality of headphones, Sony has a winner. They're also expensive. If you find them on sale, these headphones are worth it. I saved up my bonus dollars and then blew them on a goodie I wanted, not needed. The clarity of each and every note (for musicians) makes these headphones a must buy.

They come packaged very nicely and definitely give off the aura of high quality. When the earphones were removed from the packaging, they were indeed high quality.

The pros: lightweight, two detachable cords, one with controls for iPod are both an appropriate length for use with a portable device (there's little more annoying with portable headphones than 2...
Excerpt: I own several pairs of Sony headphones. I use a pair of MDR7506 headphones for my work as a freelance audio person on an ENG/EFP TV crew. They are considered the standard of the industry for TV or studio usage. I also play guitar, and have a project studio at home. I have 3 pairs of MDRV700 headphones for that purpose (1 for me & 2 for guests). They were designed for DJ usage, and can handle very high SPLs (I even play guitar directly through them).
Excerpt: Due to recent events the Hubs and I had to move into a one bedroom apartment. I work from home and the Hubs is aging and beginning to lose his hearing. I was trying to think of way to allow him to continue to watch World War II movies at a rediculous volume while also allowing me to complete my work without distraction or becoming a felon.
