"If you buy these headphones, you're stealing Sony's money!!"4.5 starson by eandradams
Pros: Great sound, loud but clear, great bass
Cons: Not for portable use?!?
Summary: These headphones should be $60.00 minimum. I am listening to music on my iPod as I write this, and I still feel like I stole from Sony.
The bass response is full and rich, the highs are clear and sharp enough to cut someone. The middles and vocals are full and present.
As for DVD watching, these phones do a good job of representing directional sound for a product that makes no claims in the area whatsoever. Whether it's "My Dinner with Andre'" or "Saving Private Ryan", sound reproduction is excellent.
With full pads around the ears, and a wide band across the top of the head, you can wear these cans for hours without discomfort (unless you crank 'em too much for your eardrums). The 10 meter cord can feel too long at times, but comes in really handy for late-night television.
My only con is that some people might think that these headphones aren't for portable use. Well, let me tell ya--These sound so good, you won't mind the looks you get.
If you're still reading this review, I have one question: Why? You should be buying these headphones already. You won't be disappointed.
