Sony MDR-RF 820 RK

Really impressed with the headphones. Off the bat they were simple to set up and use straight away, and highly comfortable. You literally get lost into your own little world listening to music and tv. Great quality sound, clarity and bass, plus the...

Sony MDR-G94NC

These are great nose canceling headphone for an unbeatable price. I use my nearly everyday. They fasten around the back of your head and only have one wire to connect to your player not the usual two hanging down. The fold up so you can put them in...

Sony MDR 501LP

When I saw these headphones, I thought they were a little strange. however, after I tried them, I noticed the excellent sound quality, the comfortable shape, the LONG cord, and the included jack size adapter, I was sold. First thing's first: These...

Sony MDR-G82LP

I have been using these headphones on a daily basis since 2001. Actually, I replaced my worn out headphones in 2002, but that pair is still going strong. While my Sennheiser closed ear headphones have somewhat better sound, the Sony compact folding...

I enjoyed their sound while they lasted, but a weird thing happened to them: the rubber coating on the cord (the part between the two earbuds that goes behind your neck) started splitting into ribbons and breaking off. It's not like I was abusing it, I...

Sony MDR-Q 33 LP

First of all, I'd like to note that I have no earlobes and smaller ears, so while I'm sure it's physically possible for me to use earbud headphones, it's really very uncomfortable. And without having much ear to grab onto, most of the over-the-ear...

Great sound, comfortable though they pinch my ears a bit after more than an hour.

Sony MDR-CD 380

I've had my MDR-CD380 for 7+ years. They've traveled with me around the world (various climates from tropical to temperate) and survived. The sound quality is very good and they're very comfortable - you can wear them for hours at a stretch, without...

Sony MDR-101LP

I have a cheap $15 mp3 player and when i'm playing it full blast through these Sony MDR 101 headphones sometimes its still not loud enough(depends on how loud the recording levels were set on the material i'm listening to). I am getting an ipod nano...

Sony MDR-CD280 Consumer Headphones

Im sure anyone with little cash and wanting okay headphones will be plenty satisfied with these, but if you are looking for some real cans your going to have to take a jump into the $100's. Anyways, for anyone with some cash to spend and wants a pair...

Sony MDR-ED 268 LP

I bought these headphones, not sure if they were this model, but they had this same HORRIBLE DESIGN. I mean they sounded alright, but i had them in my ears for little time and they just killed my ears. I dont know why they have that little thing that...

Sony MDR-NC 20

I've had a pair of these since around 1999 and they're still working perfectly. They're not the cheapest around, but then I haven't had to replace them either. Totally recommended. They do tend to need to be taken off after about 2-3 hours, but then...

Sony MDR-G52LP Consumer Headphones

This has a pretty good sound and is very comfortable on my head during my workouts. You can't beat it for the price.

Sony MDR-Q 55

I was looking for a pair of headphone for jogging. It's not very comfortable, and keeps coming off from my ears. Really annoying. However, if you are not using them for sports, the quality is fairly good for this price.

The cord went crazy after a couple weeks, it's nice they give a cord extension, but the headphones get tangled worse than a snake in a sausage factory.

Sony MDR CD3000

Ah, my favourite cans, better than ###*. I've tried electrostatics, the upper AT range, the teutonic triple and some Alessandros - but none of these pleased me as much as the old rattly Sony.

Sony MDR-NC5

These are the first pair of noise cancelling headphones I've ever bought/used, so I have nothing to compare them to except my previous regular headphones. First of all, I love the fact that it folds away into a nice compact size, which fits into the...

I have had Sony cordless headphones since 2003, so... ten+ years. I like them just fine, but my wife adores them. She bought them for me to wear, so she can sleep when I am watching late night TV (that's after 8:30 PM, for her). Sometimes I use them to...

Sony Noise Canceling Headphones-blk

Following customer reviews, I got dis-advised of the newer Sony models because of the hiss one gets when noise cancellation is ON. Well, this one also has an annoying hiss. Better or worse than other Sony models, I don't know, but it hisses. I have...
