Sony MDR-DS6000 Headphones Review - Intro

 

The Sony MDR-DS6000 headphones are a set of wireless headphones with digital surround sound. They also offer compression (so you don't get deafened when the loud bits come on) and music and cinema modes that tweak the sound. This base station requires...

The base station is a bit cumbersome.; We saw some distortion and a weak frequency response at the high end ; These headphones are really limited to in-home use by their large base station and dependence on external power.; The extra features don't...

The Sony MDR-DS6000 headphones bring wireless, surround sound cans to the home theater scene, but the price is steeper price than we'd like. These headphones seem to be aimed at a movie-watching audience, who will value the surround sound and not...

Experience great tunes and no wires

Sony MDR-DS6000 is a comfortable pair of wireless headphones that comes with excellent bass quality. It includes a surround sound support feature

The product includes some useful and exciting features, offering compression and digital surround sound. However, even if the bass is great, the overall quality of the sound is decreased by numerous distortions that one can experience at times. Also,...

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Sony MDR-DS6000

 

The Sony MDR-DS6000 RF device is extremely comfortable and produces a terrific sound quality. The surround sound was a fantastic feature and the bass was adequate. However, the earphones often interfere with other wireless devices, such as an Xbox.

These headphones have a terrific 5.1 surround sound

The wireless headphones interfere with other digital devices, like Xbox Live

We recommend these headphones for the excellent sound quality.

A Waste of Money

 

I got these with the express purpose of enjoying TV while exercising. The amount of extra hiss & static was unbearable when on the treadmill . . . an absolute waste of money.

Worthless if you use wifi

 

After searching for a while, I bought these headphones. The sound quality is ok for the few seconds at a time that anything comes through. The range is good for a bout 6 to 8 feet realistically. Anything beyond that it cuts out constantly. If there is...
