would be good at $20

  • Summary: I tried running it through my speakers, through the connector on my sound card, and with an MP3 device, all poor total sound quality. I compared it to my old Sony MDR-V150's and though they lacked the deep bass, they were leaps and bounds better in terms of total sound quality.
  • Pros: Very comfortable, decent cord length, some bass with tweaking
  • Cons: There is solid bass, but at a cost. The stronger the bass the more "gurgled" the sound. That's the nearest I could explain it. You have to turn up the sound a bit to get the units to respond with audible low frequency bass, but they seem unable to handle multi frequency return. Such that when a l...

Eh.

  • Summary: I bought these as headphones to use when i'm practicing with my bass guitar. They don't pick up the bass frequency my amp puts out, making them rather useless for that. Casual listeners to music may get more use out of them, but for my purposes, they fail rather quickly.
  • Pros: Comfortable, good for idle listening.
  • Cons: Feel flimsy, the cushions barely stay on, retail price a bit high for quality, sound isn't as good as I expect from sony.

  • Summary: As a commenter here pointed out, Sony has been riding on their name while manufacturing substandard merchandise lately. Tisk tisk.
  • Pros: I may not be an Audiophile but these headphones which arrived today have audio the quality of $10 dollar ones. Would gladly return them back if it wasn't for the fact I ripped the box in which it came in. I have a 5 yr old USB Plantronics headset which is extremely loud, and in comparison these a...
  • Cons: Everything.

  • Summary: Sorry to contradict the vast majority of the people that have reviewed this product, however the sound quality is very poor. I use a Sony, very probably a restricted volume device, however the headphones I use are ok, they give me a decent quality at 22 out of 30 volume.

false economy

  • Summary: I bought this one after I had tried the Sony MDRXB500 and loved it, and thought this, the 300,might be just as good only a bit cheaper and a bit smaller. I have to say, in comparison to it's bigger brother, this one is a big disappointment.

Super cans but horrific leakage

Mr. S. Mellins, Amazon
1 September 2010
  • Summary: After reading such glowing reviews I was very excited to receive these, and sure enough the silky, deep, subtle bass response is a thing to behold. If you like that classic Sony warm sound, this really is its apogee, and provides the kind of powerful yet detailed bass commonly associated with...

Wo genau ist der Bass?

  • Summary: Ich war sehr enttäuscht von diesen Kopfhörern. Gekauft wurden diese mit dem Wunsch nach ordentlich Bass, aber dem wurde dieser Artikel nicht gerecht. Ich habe 2 In Ear Kopfhörer, die beide deutlich mehr Bass bieten und obendrein viel günstiger sind. Schade.

  • Excerpt: Конечно же, всё относительно и на каждую модель найдутся свои любители. За те же деньги (а то и дешевле) можно приобрести Sony MDR-ZX300, которая, на мой взгляд, намного лучше звучит (несмотря на проблемы с басами) и смотрится не так дёшево, что немаловажно.
  • Pros: 1) Басы. Но не могу сказать, что они действительно КРУТЫЕ. 2) Плоский провод умеренной длины.
  • Cons: 1) Отвратительный, на мой взгляд, дизайн. Выглядит очень пласмассово и ненадёжно. Да и на улице смотрятся нелепо. 2) Не плотно прилегают к голове. Периодически спадают. Во время ходьбы они начинают "ездить" по ушам, что создаёт много неприятных ощущений. 3) Нет шумоподавления, слышно абсолютно вс...

Musikqualität ok, Geräuschdämmung weniger

  • Summary: Die Kopfhörer an sich sehen gut aus, sind leicht und einfach verstellbar. Jedoch ist der Bügel so lasch, das der geräuschdämmende Kunsstoffschwamm nicht wirklich das tun kann was er soll!

  • Excerpt: Не понимаю тех людей которые хвалят эти наушники,наверное они никогда качественного звука не слышали! Никакого мощного баса тут нет, средние и верхние частоты отсутствуют, даже эквалайзер не помогает! немного лучшее звучание только когда их прижимаешь к ушам! у меня sennheiser за 500 руб.
  • Pros: Sony
  • Cons: много
