Summary: The good bits first:- These cans are comfortable and have a surprising ability to block out passive sound. The sound is not overly coloured but reasonably warm sounding. The mids are forward and the bass is not overly dominant as is common on headphones built for the portable market nowadays, I have...
Summary: First things first, these are technically a studio monitor headphone, the same model as the MDR-7510 Professional - the only difference being the design and the cable. Compare the prices between the two and the ZX700 becomes a no brainer if the pro features aren't important to you.
Summary: Have to say I was a little let down by the delivery but I was more than compensated for that!so mdr zx700..............where do I start;Sony did a good enough job with the packaging and seller took it a notch higher,opening the package and the original box was quite straight forward!
Great headphones, good isolation and comfort with minimum sound leakage.

Summary: These are great headphones. They isolate external sounds well under the condition that you hear also music but not necessarily high. A 30 to 50% should be enough to isolate almost everything. Without music playing they just reduce external sound but not that much. Sound leakage is minimum.
Summary: Used them everyday for commuting, very good at blocking ambient noise around you. Also very low sound leakage, everyone I've asked has been unable to hear any music I've been playing when sat next to me, very useful at work!
Summary: Bad points first: No bass- i have read reviews about these headphones, and they say the bass is average. But the bass is really low. but i suppose it is meant to be 'studio headphones'. It strangles your neck when u put it on your neck. the headphones are not 'twisty'.
Summary: I thought long and hard about buying these headphones. I have a pretty good hi-fi set up with Linn CD player Naim pre-amp power amp and separate power supply driving Pro-ac speakers. This delivers a fantastic sound which is really easy to listen to.
