Solid Sony headphones, but lacking in some respects...
9 September 2012
Excerpt: On the one hand, these are made by Sony, so you know that they're going to be pretty decent from that point alone. However, as part of their line of DJ headphones, the V500s are clearly at the bottom of the pile for overall quality. Keep in mind that these are designed as "professional" headphones, for DJ/mixer/engineer use, so if these applications don't apply, you'd be far better served with either (a) a cheaper pair of headphones, or (b) a comparably-priced pair that...
Summary: I bought these originally 6 years ago when they were very expensive. They held out all 6 years and then the arm of the earpiece broke. I took a look at the other options but at this price and for this quality, they can't be beat.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: It's lightweight and very clear. However, the adjustments don't allow for small heads. My head is barely at the borderline. It would be nice if I could adjust it so that it would fit a little tighter.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Summary: The sound quality is excellent, bass is great. It's also compact because of it's ability to fold. But my biggest gripe is the fact that there uncomfortable, the cups are tight and after long sessions, your ears hurt.
Summary: I've had these for about a month now and I use these headphones not only to DJ every weekend but also for everyday listening on my iPod...I like that its very comfortable and doesnt squeeze your brain while you wear them...I love the sound quality very loud and crisp...I love these earphones and I would recommend this product to everyone..
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions, Versatile
Summary: We have about a dozen of these we use for filed audio. I think these headphones are a good value for the price. They are certainly more comfortable than lower or similarly priced models, travel well and provide better than average sound quality. If you want/need extreme audio quality, you probably need a more expensive option.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Compact, Easy To Set Up
