Disappointing
3 Star Review   By BrianinBuffalo on Sony - Official Store - Jun 9, 2013   

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".

Lasted long enough
4 Star Review   By trxR4kidx on Sony - Official Store - Feb 17, 2013   

What a great product, but after about 4years, the fabric on the headset started to break down and fall apart in my ears. Too bad, since the headphones still work, but it's the same price to replace the fabric as it is to get a new set.

Fantastic headphones!
5 Star Review   By Skies on Sony - Official Store - Jan 14, 2013   

One of the best headphone purchases I've made in a long time. They are comfortable when you sit them right and they also fold up and get quite compact. The sound range is very, very good. The bass is strong, but not over powering. The highs are crisp and defined and well balanced. The mids are also very balanced and tangible. Everything flows well and no particular range is more obvious than the other. Basically, they sound absolutely fantastic. They look great and have a nice industrial design to them. The cord design is great and it is only attached to the left ear and it works well keeping the cord out of the way. Good work, Sony. Keep it up.

Headphones that have swag!
5 Star Review   By Helenator on Sony - Official Store - Dec 25, 2012   

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!

One of the best purchases I have made in my life!
4 Star Review   By ilovemusic1999 on Sony - Official Store - Dec 22, 2012   

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!

Good headphones but hurts to wear
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Adorama - Oct 15, 2012   

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.

Great sound. Great quality
4 Star Review   By samtheclam on Sony - Official Store - Jul 4, 2012   

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.

Best Sony Headphones!!
5 Star Review   By MJS1 on Sony - Official Store - May 9, 2012   

I own many headphones from Grado,Sennheisers,Beyerdynamic,Akg along with Sony models mdr-zx700,mdr7506's,V500's and these are the best sounding under 100.00 headphones I own. They have great balanced sound and for "DJ" headphones they sound great with all music genres.Great buy. Still trying to obtain storage pouch that sony says is included(mine came with no pouch)which is important to me.

A Great Purchase
4 Star Review   By davplewis on Sony - Official Store - Apr 7, 2012   

I made this purchase to replace my broken MDR-V700's. The sound quality is great. The headphones fold up nicely too. The short cord length is the only thing I don't like. Can't move around like with the MDR-V700's but will get used to it.
