Pros good sound, comfterable(to a degree), Great price
Cons Can hurt ears(pressure from the ear pads), Almost flimsy like ear cup material, Not the best Bass reproduction; A little Bulky
Summary Being somewhat of an audio "junky" These headphones didint exactly please me with its bass reproduction and output; At higher volums, The sound can get somewhat muddy but overall the sound quality is a little more then just sub-part; But you have to remeber, Whe nyou first buy these, They wont be broken in yet, and the sound levels will sound somewhat wonky at first. Give them a few months and they should be ok.
I found that, over time, the pressure from the earcups can start to hurt my ears; But thats just me; i Wouldent recomend these headphones to anyone who will be wearing them for more then a few hours (ala. counterstrike).
Over all, these can's (or headphones) have their cons, but their pro's overcome almost every short coming. A little bulky yes, but You cant go wrong with these deacently priced headphones.
Pros Decent highs and mids.
Lightweight but still fairly solid.
Great for iPod and home use.
Cons See below due to character limits.
Summary Cons:Sounds pretty nice at low levels but when at higher volume the bass (thats hardly even there) really distorts. Not enough bass. Not clear enough. Hurt ears after about an hour or so, they push quite hard against your ears resulting in pains from ears being squashed and I don't have big ears. They definitely DON'T sound tinny but they have a lot of treble.
Honestly, I was disappointed when I tried them out for the first time. I expected more out of them especially with the bass. They lack the punch AND the deepness you would expect from headphones that look like these.
And I know what a lot of you would be thinking 'well they are cheap what do you expect' but my friend bought a cheap pair of studio monitors from a music shop for only $50 and they were so much better than these and although you could tell they were not the BEST they had clear sound and great bass which is what, so I though that Sony headphones around the same price would be just as good if not better but they are worse.
These are definitely not headphones for DJs even though it says. The only thing DJ style about these is the swiveling ear pieces. The overall sound quality is average and I found it wasn't clear enough. If you have ever listened to studio monitors you know that clearness I am talking about. Well trust me these DON'T have that. But understand that these are not completely crap headphones and they do sound nice.
If you are just looking for a cool pair of headphones that are cheap and are not too concerned about what they sound like but just want something 'good' then these will probably satisfy you. But if you are buying these to get that clear sound that studio monitors have you will be disappointed.
Maybe buy the MDR V-700's. They are a bit more money but definitely a lot better than these which are the model down from the 700s.
A side note: My standards are fairly high.
Pros Long lasting headphones, been with me for 3 years or so
They're big but you can fold them for travelling
Unmatched audio quality for the $60 I paid for them
3m long coiled cable (and very thick too)... great for DJ's
Even though they're big, I used t
Cons They hurt your ears a bit after 3-4 hours
Not very good at isolating sound, which means they're not the best street headphones, their 24 ohms balance that out though...
Summary Great audio quality. Inexpensive. Portable. Long lasting. GREAT DEAL.
Want something superb? Try some AKG 272 or Sennheiser 598 for $200 - $300
Pros They sound great, bass is perfect and they feel like great quality headphones. I've had them since Christmas and i'm very much enjoying them
Cons They start to hurt your ears after prolonged usage.
Summary I would definitely recommend anyone to get these headphones as they are great quality and are totally worth the money,
Pros They pick up lots of sound that other headphones will not. I only paid £50 at HMV.
Cons After I wear them for about an hour my ears start to hurt, but I think that would happen for any headphones.
