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.

These headphones really were a waste of money :|. I suppose it's partially my fault for having bought them in a rush and not reading that they require a battery for optimum performance. Come on, that's just ridiculous. They claim it's for the "noise cancelling" function; which it accomplishes to a small degree. However, noise cancellation is less important to me for home listening than ovrall sound quality. You can buy a pair of vic firth headphones for the same price that perform better in both sound quality and noise cancellation. In addition to the sheer inconvenience of having to replace the headphones' batteries, the battery life itself is relatively short. I've had them for just under a month and have had to replace batteries twice already with 2-4 hours of use per day. My biggest complaint above all others, however, is that they simply are not durable at all. Just this afternoon, the tiny piece of plastic holding the left bearing in place simpy snapped, and the headphones no longer function as a single unit. I didn't drop them, I didn't misuse them, it simply popped off while I was wearing them on my head. Boy, was I angry! The cable itself is very delicate as well. I can tell that this is a pair of headphones whose terminator will start to short after maybe 6 months. My advice to a prospective buyer would be to consider, instead, purchasing the Sony MDR-V150. For $20 less you'll get well made, durable and great sounding headphones. Mine lasted me 3 years which is longer than any single pair of headphones has ever lasted me. They are much more aptly suited to any listening task; be it home music listening or even studio monitoring. In sumation, I would advise AGAINST purchasing these headphones!

Loving these for work!

By 

from Atlanta, GA, USA

Comments about Sony ZX Series Black Stereo Headphone:

I picked up my headphones at the airport on the way out of town. Looking here, I see I was overcharged for them, but I'm making really good use of them at work so I don't mind too much.

The headphones were excellent for cancelling out the noise of my fellow travelers both on the flight up and the drive back home with my family (have you ever listened to a 13 year old and 16 year old sibling pair fight?).

The only thing I'm disappointed in is that my right cover came off and I can't find a place to pick up a new one. I love them, but it's not worth buying a whole new pair to get one part.

Good sound & comfort but cord too short

By 

from 89510

Comments about Sony ZX Series Black Stereo Headphone:

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 ZX Series Black Stereo Headphone:

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 ZX Series Black Stereo Headphone:

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.

Noise cancelling Headphones

By 

from 93618

Comments about Sony ZX Series Black Stereo Headphone:

I bought these to use at the gym. They play loud rock music while providing television on most cardiovascular equipment. The set works well except for the occasional 5th umpire noise. Support was extremely helpful and it seems my cell 0hone was causing 8th reference when downloading a message or email. The result was I 0urchased a second set to have in stand by just 8th case.
