Sony MDR-710LP portable headphones

 

Bass addicts on tight budgets will appreciate Sony's MDR-710LP portable, collapsible headphones, but audiophiles should consider a warmer-sounding set.

The Sony MDR-710LP has a convenient and comfortable collapsible design, includes a hard carrying case, and it delivers tight, punchy bass

The Sony MDR-710LP's 4-foot cord is too short for nonportable applications. Moreover, its treble and midrange frequencies have a more skeletal timbre than those of some 'phones

Sony MDR-710LP review

 

Bass addicts on tight budgets will no doubt appreciate Sony's portable and collapsible MDR-710LP headphones, but audiophiles might want to consider a warmer-sounding set

Convenient collapsible design ; Hard carrying case ; Tight, punchy bass

The cord is too short for home use ; Treble and mid-range frequencies have a skeletal timbre

Despite falling short of perfection, the Sony MDR-710LPs are nonetheless comfortable, decent-sounding headphones that we wouldn't hesitate to snap up, considering the price

"Great Headphones"

 

Great pair of headphones, no real drawbacks

Compact and easy to carry around, comes in a durable case. The headphones themselves are also extremely durable. Best sound quality you'll get unless you wanna buy an overpriced pair of bose, but even then all you're really extra from bose is the noise ca

kind of pricy if you don't really care for bad-ass sound. You can get decent 10 dollar headphones, but if you're an audiophile you'll definitely want these.

"Great sound for small, compact and inexpensive phones"

 

I've only had these headphones for a few days... 

Sound quality: clear highs, deep bass

Durability: Very flimsy so seems like it could have issues

"Great sound for small, compact and inexpensive phones"

 

I've only had these headphones for a few days, but very impressed and feel like I got way more than I expected. If you're looking for portable, comfortable, good sounding and seriously inexpensive headphones then these are for you. Real sound snobs...

Sound quality: clear highs, deep bass

Durability: Very flimsy so seems like it could have issues

"good sound quality"

 

good sound quality

they were very tight straight out of the box, they really hurt your ears, but then i bent them the other way for a minute of so until they loosened up, then it's fine, not sure how well they'll fold back in, but i don't really care about folding it

"Good sound, poor construction"

 

Dont buy them. I've owned several pair thinking the previous were just lemons. They are not high quality products and if you plan on travelling with them daily as I did, they just wont last.

SOund is good, strong bass, portable, price is right.

They fold awkwardly and the folding mechanism will break at some point. Bank on it.
