I use these headphones for playing electronic drums and electric keyboard and for listening to music. I have never heard such quality music from headphones. The quality is excellent. When I first got these I literally just sat listening to Rage Against the Machine and electronic music for five or six hours.It is true that wearing these for prolonged periods of time can make your ears start to ache, but only after several hours.Each earphone rotates a little over 90 degrees, and also can fold up into the headband. This feature is extremely handy and also adds for comfort if you need to listen to one earphone while keeping the other ear free, such as when mixing.I will recommend these to everyone looking for headphones. I noticed that Sony had one other higher-end model. I can't imagine the sound quality being better. Perhaps the difference takes care of the prolonged-use-comfort-issue.I agree with the previous reviewer that anyone who breaks these things probably shouldn't be entrusted with electronic equipment. The quality is excellent.

These are probably the most recognizable headphones for DJs and maybe even in some studios. The sound you get out of them makes sense for DJs. The mid and higher frequencies are loud enough to cut through the mix in live applications without being biting or painful on your eardrums. They do well at high volume and of course the folding earcups are a must. But at home or in the studio these same features don't work as well. The ear pads are thin to get the driver as close to your ear as possible but this is uncomfortable after an hour. It also sits kind of on your ear rather than over your ear. Though the sound holds together well at high volume I think it's a little lifeless. If I want to crank up the music at home I prefer the xb700 and have read that you can even get away with the cheaper 500 or 300 if you don't need the power. For studio use, these might be ok for musicians to record with but not for mixing or monitoring. They are not really sound isolating but can be turned up loud enough to block out everything else. It's nice that the sound isn't too harsh but it's just a little too dull at low volume to pick out the subtleties in music for mixing. Sound stage is ok but I can't really figure out a good way to describe placement other than to say it's just not enough to convince me I am not wearing headphones. Bass is decent but not what you would expect considering how many other bass headphones are out there right now.I kind of regret buying these but maybe I can stick them on the guitarist when I record. I gave them low ratings for value and overall because for the price, if you don't need swiveling earcups I think there are a number of headphones that can sound more exciting than these.

Using the same pair for nearly a decade

By Soundvision

from Des Moines, IA

The last pair I bought, I sold to a buddy and they are still kicking everyday. They do have some wear but no cracks or any damage. Still sound like they just came out of the box. My new pair are very comfortable even after two hours behind the decks. Very durable when flipping on and off.

Great headphones w/one fixable glitch

By WavPro

from Cleveland, TN

See all my reviews

These headphones are outstanding in the studio. I am buying 4 or 5 more pair because I know how to easily "fix the glitch". The plastic rod that is on top of the ear piece which has a screw on each side is weak (That's the glitch) I simply wrapped some sewing thread around it several times adding a few drops of super glue every 5 to 7 wraps. The set I bought was very old and were split. I've been using them for about 6 months now and the repair has held up well. On my next set, I'm going to use rubber instead of thread and reinforce as soon as I get them. Why all the trouble, because they are comfortable and sound great.

Durability Poor

By Blade

from New York City

I've been DJing For 30 years and these head phone has excellent sound but don't last. In the last 5 years I've purchased 6 pairs. The problem is at where the ear piece bends in cracks then the part just stops bending. The reason I continue buying them is for the SOUND.

Okay, but...

By samuel.john

from Minneapolis, MN

...for the money, there are better headphones out there.I am not a DJ, but rather bought these headphones for personal recording. They do sound very good, and have an excellent frequency response. They [were] quite easy to fit, and were comfortable for a little while (no more than 30 minutes). However, after a couple months, the hinges on them began to get loose, and now these headphones won't hardly stay on my head.On top of that, the mini jack is beginning to short on me.For the money, I'd recommend a different pair; Sony's, sure... but not these.

6 Years Strong

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've had these cans for about 6 years and they haven't let me down. I use them primarily for cueing when I DJ but also as headphones for my digital piano and sometimes when I make beats. They are very comfortable, though with most headphones, wearing them for over an hour can fatigue your head. The adjustable size and rotatable cups are standard features on most headphones along with the coiled telephone-like chord. Overall, they do the job and have lasted me a while.

Sony

By Bob

from Kingston, PA

See all my reviews

I owned these for a long time but had not had the opportunity to use them til now. The detail is great . I love how I have played stuff I heard a hundred times and then go to these. I start hearing people talking in the background which can't be heard any other way. And I mean major stuff. Things being dropped. Dogs barking. Odd weird sounds. First I thought something was happening in my studio until I repeated the track and it is still there. I doubt that they will be beat by something costing more. The problem...like most they start to make the heat rise quickly and you should take them off every chance you get. I don't thing this is too unusual. Can't go for more than 1/2 hour at a time & take them off for 5 min.

Please support great design and buy.

By Kyle Netik

from Phoenix Az.

I am writing this review because today my Sony MDR-V700 headphones broke. About four years ago my older brother began djing at a local bar. He bought the v700s at the time along with some other basic equipment. In the four years we've owned them, these headphones have proven their worth a thousand times over. They have been through four moves, been thrown around, stepped on and highly mistreated. About a year ago my laptop speakers broke and I simply connected the speakers to my fast track and cranked the volume, the sound quality has lasted and stayed crystal clear through it all. Today one of the headphones popped out of it's mounting base and try as I might have, I couldn't seem to push it back in (on an interesting note the sound quality hasn't been phased at all. Today my v700s broke, and tomorrow I'm going out to buy myself another pair.

By Jmillion

I have tried cheaper Sony headphones and pioneer and technics as well. Over the years I keep coming back to these headphones no matter what other type I try. The only other headphones that came close were the technics DJ ones, but really i think these are better. I use them in mobile DJing and CLub Djing all the time as well as for general audio. I dont think they get uncomfortable but i dont wear them on my ear constantly. I drop them to my neck all the time while I mix. GREAT BUY AND THIS PRICE IS LOW.
