Family getting larger? Get some headphones!!


With the arrival of my first child and the house getting smaller as a result, finding time to do things had been getting more difficult, and the chances of any noise created being a problem increased. The simple solution seemed to be a set of...

Sony MDR V150 Monitor Series Headphones With Reversible Earcups


Decent everyday headphones for a decent price

There is plenty good to say about these headphones if you take the studio out of the equation. For everyday wear and use these headphones are fine. The highs sound lovely through these and for your average music listener, these will do fine

I hate to say it, but these headphones are totally useless as studio monitors. They don't have the ability to produce the types of sounds needed for studio work. The bass is weak and the layering is just not there. Also, they're really tight and may be...

These headphones are no good for the recording studio but that doesn't mean you can't listen to your favorite CD at home. These are affordable headphones (though somewhat uncomfortable) that will suit everyday usage.

Sony MDR-V150 Studio Monitor Headphones


I have spent an endless amount of time and energy searching high and low for the perfect set of headphones that would not cause my ears to become sore after I have worn them on my head for countless hours every day. I would seriously not want to know...

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


I use these headphones everyday and when my first pair broke, I purchased the same ones. Also, these are great in the studio and even just for everyday listening. They are affordable and I believe they are worth every penny.

Amazing sound quality for all music. Plug-in to amplifier

They are awkward if you wear glasses with them (at least with plastic framed glasses).Chord is too long

Built to Break


Decent sound quality and freq. response

Easy to break

Consumer review by:

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


I had two of these. Both of them broke in the same way. I guess it's good marketing to make things that don't last and must be replaced.

Decent sound for the price

Easy to break. Made my ears sore after wearing them for an hour or so

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


Just got these at Target for $20, and I am amazed. They isolate enough noise so you don't have to turn the volume up all the way to hear your music. I bought these for use on the go with my iPod (I hate earbuds), and am very impressed. I'm gonna need a...

Lightweight, superior sound quality, thick cord, comfortable, portable

Really long cord, feel kind cheap

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


I read some of the reviews here before buying this and was expecting something different. The second I put these headphones on my head I knew they would be too tight to wear for more than a few minutes. Just not very comfortable. Also the cord is way...


Too tight, Cord is too long

Consumer review by:

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


I have a small head, so these are a nice fit for me. The earcups are cushion but they are small. They hurt my ears too much if I wear my glasses and these headphones at the same time. I guess because the earcups press in hard and with your ears being...

Not bulky, good sound

Static, 4 foot cord is overkill

Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 Headphones


These headphones have a very good sound and are really comfortable. They arrived on time. They are a great deal for the money, and I would definitely buy them again.

Product Specifications

Studio Monitor Series Headphones incorporate high-end materials and advanced engineering; critically clean, exceptionally clear sound for professional and high fidelity applications. Reversible earcups enable single-sided monitoring flexibility. 30 mm diameter drive units are larger than many headphones for deeper bass, lower distortion and wider dynamic range; bass response extends down to a low 18 Hz. 500 mW power handling stands up to day-in, day-out use at high output levels. Ferrite magnets allow for high energy and compact size producing ample sound output - 98 dB/mW sensitivity. Oxygen-free copper cord assures maximum conductivity, minimum noise. It conducts electricity better than conventional copper. Supra-aural design rests lightly on the ear and creates a controlled environment for better sound. Driver is positioned the correct distance from the ear canal. Wide, molded headband distributes the headphone's weight over a wide area; reduced pressure means comfortable listening for hours on end.
