Sony MDR V55

 

The Sony MDR-V55 stereo headphones provide you with superior sound response while giving you style and function. Read how they compare to similar headsets.

These headphones fold for easy storage, and the swivel earcups make it easy to listen with just one ear

They do not come with a storage bag, and the cord is relatively short

The Sony MDR-V55 stereo headphones provide exceptional sound and are perfect for personal music players and beginning DJs.

Sony MDR-V55 review

 

Do these cans sound as good as they look?

Looks good ; Cushioned ear cans ; Foldable design

Sound quality not that great ; Short lead

It's a shame, these headphones look the part, and at lower volumes sound OK, but listen to anything reasonably loud and you'll be disappointed.

Sony MDR-V55

 

DJ headphones with bassy sound that won't offend the audio purists. Much.

Bags o' fun sound ; Decent looks ; Powerful bass ; Decent clarity

Not very comfortable ; Creaky plastic frame

comfortable, Great sound.

 

I would rrecommend this to anyone who needs a good headphone for the go but it sounds great on anything.

Nice relaxing fit with a nice looking design and a good range of sounds. These headphones also have a sound build quality featuring a strong flat aux cord that is tangle proof

Best Headphone I ever owned!!!!

 

There is this huge movement to buy "Beats" headphones because they are the "in" thing. But I can assure you there are no better headphones on the market than these Sony headphones and they are less than half the cost. I bought my first pair in 2012 and...

Better than Beats

 

The biggest bang for the buck. They sound better than the more expensive brands and models. Downfall is there is no case or soft bag to store them in.

Headphone leak sound, super annoying

 

They are compact, flexible and fit nicely but people can hear my music when I'm listening at a normal level. Think what would happen in a quiet office while listening to Metal or anything other than soft music at regular or "loud" decibels? Seriously,...

Works like a champ

 

The one glaring oversight of this set of headphones is that although the plastic appears to be high-quality and feels nice, the hinges have a tendency to be on the squeaky side of things. I have read similar reviews that support this same problem. If...

Sound is clear, and accurate ; Very portable, folds up nicely, perfect to carry in a backpack ; Competes with headphones at a higher price point ; Tangle-free cord ; Sounds and looks the same as the day I bought it ; Easy to adjust to fit, plenty of...

Uncomfortable for long sessions of listening ; Major issue is addressed below

Like NEW Refurbished

 

Great pair of quality DJ styled headphones. A true DJ style headphone like this pair has rotating ear cups, Strong solid build, and a sound stage tuned for the type of music. Headband has a metal core and a nice Sony logo on the headband. The little...

Quality Built ; Good Design ; Looks Nice ; Good Sound ; Price

Slightly creaky plastic ; Discomfort over time
