Great for the price


The sound is good enough, clear, and crisp but the bass is a bit weak ; The build is light and durable, I owned it for about 3 years and its still working ; Long cord so you can move around without having to take it off. just about a meter long ;...

Its not noise canceling so you'll hear other people. IT has its cons and pros depends on the people. if you set it on highest volume you wont here others as much but others will here you if they are about 4-5 ft away... or the room is dead quiet ; The...

Just wonderful


Don't get me wrong. These headphones are perfect! I got them as an option with my stereo and they work great! Couldn't detect a single flaw. Even the cord is long enough for the standard user. I've found them perfect so far and do not have any...

Good sound, but cheap plastic


I bought these for everyday listening. I use them while on the treadmill. The sound quality is good. About 6 months after I bought them the left side swivel broke. It's just a piece of plastic. Now the phones don't stay on my head :-(

These headphones are a good value for casual listening

No major ones for a set of headphones in this price range

Unbeatable Sound for the Price!


I've bought numerous headphones since I recently got into recording my own music. Most of the time headphones are overpriced and don't really work that great. I stumbled across these headphones at my local walmart a few times wondering if I should even...

Long cord-1/4 adapter for other audo devices-Great

Headphones may get uncomfortable after wearing them for awhile

Excellent Sound for $30


I've been on a headphone kick ever since I got my 2nd gen 32 GB iPod Touch.  I've already bought some Skull Candy Smoking Buds INK'D ear buds based on the positive reviews here at ePinions, but also wanted something over-the-ears for at-home use.

Excellent sound for a semi-open ear design, priced right

Uncomfortable after a while if you wear glasses

Fool me thrice, shame on me


I'd purchased these headphones after a long history of satisfaction with Sony products. In less than a month a plastic part holding one of the speakers to the headset broke off -- since it was under warranty I sent it in for a repair/replacement and a...

Good sound, good looks

Will fall apart sooner rather than later

Consumer review by: tom0826 (

Good sound and value, but not built to last.


I've had these headphones for about 2 years, and use them almost daily to play music while working at my CAD station at work. I selected these headphones since I'm usually pleased with the sound quality of Sony products at a reasonable price. I liked...

Good sound quality, closed type monitor style headphone, padded ear cups, good value

Easily broken plastic pieces. Must handle with care if you want them to last

Sony mdrv250v DJ headphones


My first impression to these headphones was not a great one, i thought they seemed quite weak, and had poor sound and the only thing going for them was there looks.

Good sound quality, look good and are quite strong

Dont have a leather wrapped headband

Consumer review by: nutmegs (

Pretty good value for the money


I bought these for $50 about 2-3 years ago. They were the best headphones my local appliance conglomerate had at the time (Best Buy I think). They sounded better than any headphones I'd had before. Though the bass isn't as deep as many more pricey...

Good sound, cheap prices,filters surrounding noise well

Cheaply made
