I was researching for headphones for a long time. I finally decided on these after about a year a research. ( a year because i planned on buying them then something came up) I finally made my decision after seeing many reviews say these beat even the $300 beats. And went to a Sony store to try the sound for myself. I was purely amazed. Putting these headphones on was an experience. The sound was full, the bass was strong, but not over powering, and the highs and lows hit just perfectly. You CAN'T go wrong with these headphones. I love them and use them everyday! I hope this helps with your purchase!

I bought these cause i tried out the v55s and thought these were a better version. These are nice to look at and the sound is nice at resonable volumes but if you crank it up then everyone in the room can hear you and it gets really distorted but then again im not trying to destroy my eardrums anyways so im good. The plastic is creeky and makes alot of sounds as you try to adjust. I have had these phones for about 3 days now and im still trying to get used to the lack of cusioning, the diameter of the cans are really wide and i think sony should have just went with around ear instead of putting this on ear... some of my ear has cusion and some parts feel the hard plastic underneath... they should have put more cusioning. I bought these so i am gonna use them but i would have been happier with the v55s.

Disappointing

By BrianinBuffalo

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Sony Black DJ Style Headphones:

Got these to replace a pair of worn out MDR-V500 phones that got a lot of use over nearly a decade. That model's no longer available, so I expected the "replacement" would be at least as good, if not better. Instead of the nicely balanced, true-sounding phones, I got these bass-heavy phones with a short cord. I use them for on-air radio work. They're simply not as good as the phones they "replaced".

      Headphones that have swag!

      By Helenator

      from Cincinnati, Ohio

      Comments about Sony Black DJ Style Headphones:

      If you want to get good headphones that are good quality and not cheap, then these are the ones for you. When I first started looking for headphones I looked for beats, but you can get better headphones way cheaper. The MDR-V55 by Sony come in many different prices, but it is available for less than $100 so it is relatively low priced, and the sound quality is amazing! I especially love the bass! Which isn't overpowering, but nice!

      In ten years of my DJ experience, this headphone set from Sony is the greatest-value pair I've ever come across. Hands down. Great, great work, Sony.

        By Harris84

        from Philadelphia, PA

        Pros

        • Sound quality, build quality, portability

        Cons

        • Get uncomfortable after a while

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony Black DJ Style Headphones:

          I've wanted these headphones for a while, since I first heard about them on youtube. I am very satisfied with them. I've been a Sony fan for a while. I'm typing this review up on my Sony laptop. I've always knew Sony makes quality products, so far they've never failed. I've been looking for a great pair of headphones with amazing bass. I bought three pairs of Sony headphones within three months. These headphones are perfect. I strongly recommend them. This is the way music is suppose to be heard. I'll be purchasing the MDR-1Rs and the MDR-X10s next.

            I hav had these headphones for about three weeks now, and have had zero problems with them. They sound great, they deliver tight, deep bass down to 5hz. I highly recommend these over Beats by Dr. Dre as they sound exactly the same. Thanks Sony. -DiamondxWolfx133

            Great sound. Great quality

            from Vancouver, BC

            Comments about Sony Black DJ Style Headphones:

            All the pros are the same as other reviews. The only con I don't see mentioned is that these get uncomfortably hot and hurt your ears after just 15 or so minutes of usage. So if it is comfort you're looking for, these are not the cans you're looking for.
