Description: These Studio Monitor Series headphones incorporate high-end materials and advanced engineering to produce critically clean, exceptionally clear sound for professional and high fidelity applications. Swivel earcups enable single-sided monitoring for DJ and remix applications. Listen to house sound with one ear while you cue up the next track with the other. An auto return swivel mechanism brings the earcups back to the standard listening position, giving you one less thing to worry about. The 50 mm diameter drive units deliver reference-grade sound and enable superior power handling with deeper bass, lower distortion and wider dynamic range. The frequency response extends down to an extraordinary 5 Hz. 3000 mW power handling means these headphones can handle the most stringent professional applications, standing up to day-in, day-out use at very high output levels.

Bottom Line:   
Comfortable, nice looking, but other than that, very sub par for a sony product.

As a Dj, Producer, and just a music lover, that listens to many genres, i found these CLEAR yes, but lacking Bottom end completely, you have some bass frequency response, but definately not to the level they state @ 5hz, its more around 50 (had a quick play in my D.A.W) so if your right in to your drum n bass, dubstep, hard techno, these are pretty much rubbish, but even with the more alternative and rock / thrash metal stuff, they were a big let down aswell, Way too mid ranged, snares are crisp and most high end synth's / pitches are quite impressive, so not bad for melody mixing. overall, i would recommend an alternative, for the music serious. But i payed a humble 40$ so im not cut much. if you paid the 187, i would feel somewhat murdered.

Bottom Line:   
So I have a pair of sony earbuds. The silicon ones that are very comfortable, and sound amazing! I wanted some over the ear ones for home. I am a programmer and listen to music constantly. First off, the headphones grip your head way too tight! After that, sound clarity really sucks. The range on these are not impressive. There is no feel for bass, and they're heavy. Guy i work with got the Sony MDR-v6 and they are awesome. I am taking these back to get those.

can get loud

Bottom Line:   
These headphones are a relic of the past. You can do much better for your money.

I bought these for dj purposes, thats about all they are good for.

Very uncomfortable and somewhat heavy for the size, they press on your ears, in an hr you'll want a massuse to rub your sore ears.

The plastic is flimsy with stress fractures appearing at 4 months around both the hinges. I eventually had to tape them together. The final straw was when one ear piece snapped off mid gig. I tried to fix it by taking the hinge apart and gluing the plastic bits together again. When I took apart the hinge, two springs popped out that just didnt want to go back into the housing. I spent about 2 hrs trying to get them back in.

The sound is loud enough for dj purposes, but for the money I spent, I expected better quality. If you are a producer, dont bother with these as the sound is not precise to the mix.

i boght these when i knew nothing, for dj ing and monitoring productions in my home studio at night, i thoght they were the bizzo,--------how wrong i was,sound was good at first but, quickly deteriorated,then they fell to bit's after i gig'ed em a few times,i tried to tell sony and asked if they could fix em.and sony said
"are you Eric Morillo"
"No " i said.
"In that case,HA HA HA HA HA Ha HA HA Ha Ha HA HA HA HA hA hA hA HA hA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA" pause for breath"HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA, we have your money now"
i took that as a no.i now realise that these are'nt suitable for production monitoring.Beacause you end up with no bass in your production.and they fall to bit's if you gig'em and you can't fix em.Which render's them useless.hence th new low price of 80 squid's but if you can find 80 squid's willing to give up there live's for some wink headphone's then your either a marine biologist/dj or king neptune.

if you want some production monitoring headphones that are flat and show up anything wrong with a mix,buy some sennheiser hd600's if you want some field monitoring/dj head phones(why you'd want to monitor a field i don't know)get some HD 25's they last forever and ever,they were desighned by ancient hebrews you can trace em back to the old testement which is why there still dear

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these headphones because I am so happy with my MDR-150 headphones for using on my computer - for $19.95 they are killer headphones.
However, for my home system I wanted to move up in performance so I purchased this set of cans. I am very pleased with the sound of the headphones. Yes, they are a bit more money, but the ol' adage you get what you pay for is appropriate here. The Mdrv-700dj phones have more bass response - they sound simply cleaner. I find them to be a comfortable set of phones. Others have stated they are not comfortable - what the heck are they wearing?

I will not say that these are the absolute best cans available to the consumer - but they are well worth what I paid! If you enjoy your music with a tad warm presentation - you've found your holy grail. Enjoy your music.
