  • When someone starts an audio review with how an item LOOKS – it's not a good sign

  • 'Almost entirely of plastic'. These headphones are made of stainless steel (headband) and aluminium (cups) and a strong composite material for the part holding on the cups. Mine are still intact after 12 years of being squished many times. It's just the plug that is getting scratchy this past year

  • Sounds like the headphone is the equivalent of windows 7 that everyone loves and yet nobody wants to upgrade. The difference is that these headphones were ahead of its time of production and probably will be around for another 10 years.

  • I'm using these to edit videos for the news, all day non-stop they're pretty goddamn comfortable and extremely durable.

  • These give a flat frequency response. Its because these are supposed to prove the track. They are really good. Ive had 2 of these pairs now. Last pair I got was almost 30 years ago. Yea they been making these same headphones that long. Not kidding. I use Yamaha HS studio monitors.. these are no different. They just give you a very accurate representation of what your putting out… so for listening they are good too. They just make it really easy to pick apart bad mixes. Which does happen. I find bad mixes in almost everything. These won't smooth that out. Its the job they supposed to do. "tell the damn truth" and they do.

  • Now you helped me realize that those are for recording, not for listening. I bought it for recording the voice over. However got very upset, when first tested by listening music.
    I am new to all this recording thing and many thanks for helpful video

  • Channel name is SoundGuys and no nothing about sound. What a pity! There are many headphones better than this but that does not make it a bad headphone. Considering its price it is a very good headphone. Talked more about looks than actual topic.

  • These are my base line headphones. I base all my purchases on how they compare to this. I also puked on them, but then I washed them and then washed the whole thing by accident again, also the coating on the padding now gone and it kept leaving black flakes on my face and for the longest time I had no idea why until I remembered one day that I always fell asleep in them. Also they are so comfy for sleeping because they project nothing out towards the side. You cannot break these. Impossible. I must have gone through 2 quietcomforts, a bunch of Lindys, a JBL, and a number of non branded ones for travel etc. And this is the only one that I cannot misplace, break or destroy. The wire is heavy. But these headphones' sound quality is second to none. Not that I'd know.

  • in the world of voiceover – they have no equal

  • The point the reviewer makes here, perhaps not clearly enough, is that these were intended for professional production people like me. I've been using them in audio and video production for 20 years now, for one simple reason– they're honest in their sound reproduction. And being an industry standard, they're repeatable (consistent). I would never say these are the greatest headphones ever made; I'd say they are a great hammer in my tool bag for those times I need a standard hammer, a predictable tool, not something fancy or crazy. I've listened to Beats my daughter bought, and they are not honest at all. But the Sonys? Clean and accurate, and especially for $89 !!!

  • It took you 3:47 before you started to cover sound on a headphone review. lol

  • I just want a pair of headphones with "true sound" quality. Will these headphones give me that? No bass boost, no "sound enhancers", etc. JUST simple "true audio" sound; like they used to make 'em.

  • are my sony headphones faulty…I can't hear bass or lower-mids at all…quality is comparable to the earbuds they give away for free on a plane mid flight

  • I own a pair and use them with my bass guitar practice daily. I ended up needing to replace the factory pads as the originals became unattached and cracked (my only complaint about the original setup). The aftermarket pads from Amazon improved the bass response due to a better seal and improved the comfort as he says. They have been reliable after many years of use. I've recommended them to two other musicians who are very happy I did. How they look? Who cares.

  • You went into this review complety wrong these have a sole purpose and they do that extremely well and to compare them to beats shows how daft this review is and the fact that you say they dont look good!

  • I worked in audio production and audio production education for years and these are standard because they are almost flat. I have tried almost every major brand in all tiers of pricing and I always come back to these. THE ONLY OTHER COMPETITOR can be the AKG's at the same price point. I use these for casual listening now. Again I tried Bowers and Wilkins, Bose, Beats, etc,,,,,,,, now I use the 7506 just to catch the 6 train to work. Bottom line if you want serious reference headphones, buy these. Also, SONY did make these that rotate 90 degrees for DJ's. They were the Sony MDR700DJ.

  • Man, they are crystal clear and $90. At that price I'd love to see something better. Lots n lots of HP's out far more expensive that have no clarity… These are high fidelity.
