Excerpt: These are the cans I used when I DJ'd, and they really excel in the quality that means the most when gigging: durability. I'm probably guilty of mistreating these phones, but they still showed up to work every time. The sound is both loud and clear with great highs and lows and acceptable mids....
Summary: Comfortable, nice looking, but other than that, very sub par for a sony product. As a Dj, Producer, and just a music lover, that listens to many genres, i found these CLEAR yes, but lacking Bottom end completely, you have some bass frequency response, but definately not to the level they state @ 5hz, its more around 50 (had a quick play in my D.A.W) so if your right in to your drum n bass, dubstep, hard techno, these are pretty much rubbish, but even with the more...
Excerpt: This is a professional DJ headphone that is seen on numerous DJs, even after having been taken out of commission from Sony (update model is the Sony MDR-V55/BR). The ear cups can be comfortably moved around on your ears as well as worn in a way that you can listen in on the headphone as well...
These Sony headphones are among the best for professional use

Excerpt: Sony has been making studio and club headphones for years with the MDR-V500 and V700 headphones; the time and experience means quality, through and through. These headphones aren't meant for casual listeners (i.e., these aren't your first choice, necessarily, if your only audio system is an iPod or Zune), but if you're a mobile or club DJ looking for a reliable pair of headphones with good dynamic response across a wide frequency range, a solid build, and an air of...
Sony Headphone with great quality but cheap material.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have used this to DJ for more than 2 years. These are great headphones to use for DJing. When DJing at a club, it doesnt cancel out all the noise but when mixing, you hardly notice the sound. Great crisp sound with amazing beats. this has a quarter inch gold platted connection that can be detach for the use of a regular headphone jack. It comes with a small pouch to use to travel. These have reverse earcups which is convenient for on shoulder use.
Excerpt: Sound performance isn't the best when considering these are intended for DJs and Rap artists. Sound favors heavy bass and treble which can make certain pieces of music seem flat. Design is good for travel, despite their size - and they last forever. Be aware, eventually the ear pads will wear...
Pros: I've owned these headphones for over 4 years now and they sound just as good as the day I bought them. I've listened to just about everything in them and they bring out all the sounds that were recorded. They haven't broke or needed repair in all 4 years despite my heavy use of them. I've always been on the look for a better pair for the value but you just can't.
Cons: The only thing that shows wear is the cushioning on the headphones. The black material that covers it is starting to flake off but can't blame them because I've but them through a lot. Also they start to get uncomfortable (at least for me) after about an hour or two of use.
Pros: Sound is great. Feels very sturdy and quality. Pretty comfortable, they sit a little crooked on me, but i kinda think its just my head. Pretty comfortable after an hour or so, havent pulled an all nighter yet but cant image they would be too bad. In game sound is amazing, music is very good as well. Bass is nice and crisp.
Cons: Fits a little tight. Just kinda squeezes my head a little. Not a big problem though. And i have a big head so i expect it.
Pros: These headphones will give you numerous eargasms! I have owned some high priced headphones in the past and these totally outshine them. I listen to a variety of audio from R&B, Classical, Hip-Hop, and Rock. I can honestly say that after switching from my Bose headphones to the Sony MDR-V700DJ headphones the difference is significant. I definitely had a smile on my face while listening to these. Highly recommended.
Cons: I can envision the plastic swivel joints becoming an issue in the future...thats if I dont excercise extreme care with these.
