Summary: I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to headphones and audio, so forgive me if I'm not good at reviewing or explaining things. The Sony MDR-MA300 is a surprisingly good headphone for a really cheap price. I bought them for comfort reasons and the fact they are open, but I couldn't find much on them in terms of audio quality so I was taking a chance with these. Turns out they beat my expectations in terms of audio quality and they are very comfy.
for the price they are really good, but remeber they are Open-air design

Summary: for the price they are really good, but remeber they are Open-air design, which means people around you will hear everything you are listening to but gives you a better sound experience, you can test that by listening to one of your favorite songs and part way through put you hands over the back of the headphones covering the vent holes
Summary: Upgraded to these from a pair of Sennheiser 201's and am in love! The sound from the Sennheiser's were good but my ears would get hot and itchy after about 30 minutes so I could never game or listen to music for long sessions. I've always had this problem with 'cans' but upon reading about Open Headphones i decided to take a punt.

Summary: Nothing to write home about. They are indeed very comfortable to wear however the sound quality just isnt as good as i thought it would be and it does leak out slightly more sound than a cheaper pair of lower spec sony headphones i also have. Also, the cord is like at least 3 meters long which is useful for moving about or if you want to sit far away from the screen however it can get in the way sometimes.
Very comfortable, could wear these for hours without discomfort

Summary: Very comfortable, could wear these for hours without discomfort. Perfect for watching tv without annoying the neighbours! Nice deep bass plugged into iPod, although not deafening. Used to my music being a bit louder, time to upgrade the iPod maybe. All in all, a pretty good buy. Definitely recommend.
Summary: sounds good, fits comfortably for medium length sessions (after a couple of hours my ears get just as tired as any other headphone) little swivelling centres are a bit of a gimmick but they are nice when you put them on. They'e not designed to keep noise in so aren't good for trains etc but as a set of inexpensive home headphones I can't fault them.
