Pretty nifty

Peggy G., Newegg
13 June 2010
  • Summary: I would definitely get them for a friend or recommend them! Don't expect to walk around a lot with them cause they fall off easier than earbuds. Great quality headphones!
  • Pros: These are amazing pieces of mankind's audio ability. ha They're good for listening to music while sitting somewhere like at a computer or in bed. Accidentally fell asleep with them on and they were fine in the morning cause they're tough. As others have said they feel like great quality. Sound is...
  • Cons: They do get warm but I don't mind much until like 3 hours of use without taking them off...

Pretty cool

Peggy G., Newegg

  • Summary: I like the twisting of the headphones and how they can fold up to be nice and small. Nice fast shipping Newegg!!
  • Pros: Well, they come with the little gold adapter it's cool. The sound is great. I prefer it a little louder to hear everything and they do great. I really liked listening to music before these but now I'm addicted!
  • Cons: I bought them for listening to music on my Zune and computer. A con might be that there is a heavy coiled cord but I didn't really buy them for the purpose of what they were made for. I just put the cord in my pocket when I'm using it with my Zune so it's not really a problem and it's nice to wal...

  • Summary: I bought these head phones three years ago to use with my keyboard, the sound quality is so good sometimes I take them off to make sure my studio monitors aren't on.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, nice long cord is great if you need to roam around. big bang for your buck. very durable, I'm convinced I could drag them behind my car and they would still work.
  • Cons: Not the best headphones to use jogging since the cord is so long.

  • Summary: THERE IS MORE PROS THAN CONS. JUST GET THESE HEADPHONES!
  • Pros: I bought this for my cousin, and I just wish I could keep them. I swear to you that at times (specially listening to Coldplay) it seems like your floating, or your soul is floating.. I would definetly get these headphones, not only cause of the SOUND QUALITY, but also for the NOISE REDUCTION, GRE...
  • Cons: My ears are VERY VERY warm now. Kind of tight on the ears.

Low end for profesional DJ quality headphones.

Daniel O., Newegg
30 March 2008
  • Summary: If your *really* concerned about the smaller cup size you can get the MDR-V700DJ. They are more comfortable to wear for long term you will pay more however.
  • Pros: These are extremely good headphones. They are good enough, and often used, for professional audio work in studio or on by a DJ. For a gamer or non-professional, I wouldn't waste you money on anything better than this as you wont be able to hear the diffrence. They are also extremely durable. With...
  • Cons: People have complained that they hurt. They have a smaller cup size then some studio headphones and are not intended to have the cup completely over the ear, but only partly over and on the ear. If they become uncomfortable you can shift them from from slightly forward on the ear to somewhat behi...

Great sound quality and design don't make up for pain.

Cody S., Newegg
23 March 2008
  • Summary: These headphones were built for a DJ to use the swivel function, and generally for people who don't actually want to put headphones on.
  • Pros: The sound quality is as good as any higher-end headset, and the design, in terms of functionality, is exceptional. Swivel cups are useful, the 1-side stretch chord with attachments is extremely useful, and the simple folding mechanism is very helpful with packing and/or storing.
  • Cons: Regardless of any of the high points of the product, as some other reviews have mentioned, this product is immediately painful. They feel bulky to begin with, and become increasingly painful to wear over time. After about 30 minutes to 1 hour, it's unbearable.

After 7 years of ownership...

Simon V., Newegg
20 February 2008
  • Summary: Even if they are destroyed on the outside, and the joint broke, they still produce an awesome sound are still used at work.
  • Pros: The sound is phenomenal. I'll use DJ series of headphones from now on. The swivel headset feature is irreplaceable. Instead of taking off your headphones, you can place them around your neck with the speakers up.
  • Cons: After about 7 years, the coating over the foam earpieces is now destroyed and slowly coming off in little flakes. The joint from the headphone to the support broke about 4 years in and I had to glue it back together.

Great sound, Bad Quality!!

Anonymous, Newegg
23 May 2007
  • Summary: Design is great...coiled cable, screw on 1/4 phono plug, single side cable. All things you need in a good pair of headphones; things to look for when buying a different brand.
  • Pros: I'm no audiophile but they sounds great compared to other headphones. <1 hour they are comfortable....
  • Cons: >1 they hurt like hell. The quality of these headphones are junk. I love Sony, but the last couple pairs of headphones fell apart with in a year. I keep really good care of my headphones and i dont have an exceptionally large mellon, but the joint that connects the cup with the band breaks way to...

NO!

Anonymous, Newegg
23 March 2007
  • Summary: for the price... go with anything else.
  • Pros: You hear stuff
  • Cons: So so painful if you use them longer than an hour. your ears get sore and no matter how much you adjust them on your head they hurt just as much... I started wearing a benie on my head while I play games so I can last longer than an hour while my wife sleeps...
