  • Excerpt: The MDR-500's are my first pair of headphones, however, I have extensively used several other brands of headphones (Bose, JVC, Sennheiser). The 500's are a pretty good deal. What they lack in sound quality, they make up in comfort. These headphones were designed for pop/hip hop or...

Excellent source for relaxing!

J.Nasca, J&R

  • Summary: I mainly use my headphones while listening to music on my ipod touch and it's amazing! I love the comfort and softness of the headphones. Usually with other headphones I have problems with the soreness of my ear, but with these headphones, my ears are cushioned! I love every aspect of the headphones and wouldn't change a thing! J&R offer a great price, much cheaper than in stores, great deal!

A very dynamic headphone

Audionut, J&R
21 October 2009
  • Summary: These headphones have great isolation propertiesdue to the large "absorbent" cushions that absorb ambient sound. It isn't a noise cancelling design that requires amic or more circuits, but it really works well forpassive isolation. Very dynamic sound, too! I like these better than the top of the line MDR-XB700's. So, If you can, listen to them bothbefore buying. I gave them a 4 because they require EQ. Midbass is terrible until they areEQ'd. A real bargain, though!

"Biggest bang for the buck"

insaneazn22, J&R
14 October 2009
  • Summary: I usually use this product product on my commute to school and from school. The big cushion headphones really block out alot of excess noise and are comfortable for the most part. The headphones have great sound quailty and bass but are a bit bulky and cumbersome to carry around. I would not recommend this for people who like to travel light and compact.

great headphones

Stevie drums, J&R
7 August 2009
  • Summary: The headphones are great. I have a Roland TD6 electronic drum set so I use them when playing. Several of the drum sets programmed into the TD-6 have low bass and these phones can really reproduce it. The flat Y-cable is coo. The cord is only 3ft so I'd recommend the extension cable.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Lightweight, Rich Sound

They sound great

Mat, J&R
20 July 2009
  • Summary: This is my first over-the-ear/ on-ear headphones so I may not know how these headphones compare to other similar headphones, but compared to the default apple headphones you get with an iPod, they sound great! The Bass truly is great, and it is not overwhelming as some other people might have said. These headphones have good noise cancellation, while my music is playing I did not hear anything around me, even my loud doorbell.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Lightweight, Rich Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: None
