Pros: 1) Pronounced bass level
Cons: 1) Comfort
Summary: It took me a while to finally realize, but in all honesty there is nothing good or great about these headphones. They're not comfortable in any sense of the word (not only that, but flat out painful), but in my experiences they definitely are durable. I've owned two pairs over a course of three years, but in all fairness the first pair broke because a helicopter managed to line them up on the ground and drop about 600 pounds of pine seedlings on top of them in the wilderness of Northern Alberta. Not a bad way to say Good Night.
Anyways, after I listened to a couple other pairs of headphones, I noticed there was something SERIOUSLY wrong with the mdr150s. If you are planning on owning these, or already do, you're going to have to toss these bad boys through a serious High- Shelf filter to hear any treble whatsoever. Like, have that response rising from 1k-22k Hz like an exponential curve reaching for the ceiling.
The reason why I don't have much good to say about these, even though I went out and bought a second pair after the first broke is because up until recently I, like most of the population as well, really had no idea that headphones could vary so drastically in quality, even at the exact same price range.
I am not affiliated with the company at all, but if you want a pair of headphones for this price, there are much better buys to be had, and I HIGHLY recommend going to www.headphone.com The service and honesty that site provides will blow your socks off, and they offer a 30 day money back guarantee so you can test out a pair of headphones, and if you don't like 'em, you get a full refund.
I recently just purchased the AKG K701s from them, which are a "bit" :) more expensive than the mdr-v150, but they offer exceptional selection, fantastic prices, and completely unbiased reviews.
I hope this helps.
