I've owned two pairs of V6 headphones over the last 10 years and they've been some of the best investments I've ever made. I use my nice pair for desktop listening, while my aged beater pair with crumbling foam earpads (hey, they're nearly 10-years old and have seen thousands of hours of use) are used exclusively for the garage. Sound quality is solid, great bass and clear mids and highs...comfort is wonderful, but any headphone can become irritating when worn for eight hours straight. The coiled cord is also a bonus for desktop use, it lets you swivel around in your chair without excess cord getting caught up in your chair's wheels.

After reading so many glowing reviews, I jumped on the bandwagon. The sound quality is definitely the product's strong point, though if you primarily listen to MP3s, and they were not encoded in the best manner possible, this headset will punish you for it with mediocre sound. One gripe I had with this set is that it fits a bit too tight, so it is not really ideal for extended use, because it causes discomfort to your years. Benefit is a nice sound isolation and insulation. But for me, it wasn't worth it. So if you have larger than average head, or tend to have your headset on for hours on, think hard before you but this product. The set also has pretty high quality looking construction going for it. The coiled cable is extra thick for durability, portions of ear cups are made of metal, it feels pretty solid, and the mini jack is of high quality. BUT, mine broke after a year, with very few gentle uses. Left speaker went dead, and it doesn't appear to be any of the connections. Maybe I got a bad batch. But Sony's 90 day warranty is laughable. Based on reading through hundreds of review, the failure rate has been going up on this product, so don't put too much stock into reviewers who bought the product 10 years ago. I'm rather disappointed needless to say.

Good sound & comfort but cord too short

By 

from 89510

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

This headset has the best sound quality of any PC headset I've purchased. Comfort is very good too if you remove your earrings. But the cord is too short! No other headset I've bought had a cord that was too short. And there is nothing about the cord length in the specifications on the packaging or the Sony website. Now I need an extension cord (or preferably an extension cord with splitter for going back & forth between PC speakers and headset), and I don't know what to get because there are no plug size specifications to be found on the packaging or Sony website, either!!! If I included the packaging and specifications issues in my score, I'd give this product a 2, not a 4.

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

These earphones are very good for the money . l pay a $100 for JBL E40. Sony was just as good. The volume was better than E40.

the sound blew out after 3 months of gentle use

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

After using these headphones for only three months, I was walking along listening to music and suddenly the sound blew out of the right side. Until then they had been great, but I was hoping they'd last longer than three months! Now only the left headphone works.

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

I like it. Good quality. Just a but uncomfortable if you have earings in your ears because head phones press your ears. Besides that -enjoying it!

Durability and excellent sound

By 

from 49525

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

We purchased our first set of Sony MDR V6 headphones in 1991. Since that time we have purchased two additional sets. Using a Sony stereo receiver connected to our iMac, the V6 sound through the receiver is significantly improved over direct connection to the computer. For almost 25 years the V6 has been our preferred headphone.

These headphones go great with my sound card!

By 

from Fairfield, OH 45014, USA

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

I have had a pair of these for four years, now. I have a Logitech 5.1 speaker system on my computer (I'm a former musician; I want great sound) along with a high end sound card, and the ZX100 headphones sound superior to the speakers. (The reason why I'm buying a new pair is that I stepped on my current pair by accident. These are great headphones, not a great skateboard!)

25 years plus and still going strong

By 

from SW Ohio

Comments about Sony Studio Monitor Series Black Headphones:

I bought my MDR-V6 headphones in the 1980's. I'm not sure of the year but I know it was several years before the internet became a household thing. Through 25 plus years of service these headphones have been nothing but outstanding. They were head and shoulders above the competition when I bought them and they still sound great. I haven't bothered to check what other phones sound like in a while because it's pretty much impossible to best the phones I have. I have other headphones of course but none have the natural sound and complete sound of these Sony phones. They are simply the best. Loudspeakers have improved a lot over that time period but not headphones. I don't see how they could. I think my grandchildren will be listening to these headphones and wondering how Sony got it so right so long ago.
