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.

Lasted long enough


What a great product, but after about 4years, the fabric on the headset started to break down and fall apart in my ears. Too bad, since the headphones still work, but it's the same price to replace the fabric as it is to get a new set.

Great quality, portability, build

Fabric on headset deteriorated

Fantastic headphones!


One of the best headphone purchases I've made in a long time. They are comfortable when you sit them right and they also fold up and get quite compact. The sound range is very, very good. The bass is strong, but not over powering. The highs are crisp...

Very balanced, comfortable and great range of highs, mids and lows

Outstanding sound quality for price

Good headphones but hurts to wear


I bought these cause i tried out the v55s and thought these were a better version. These are nice to look at and the sound is nice at resonable volumes but if you crank it up then everyone in the room can hear you and it gets really distorted but then...

Creeky plastic, Uncomfortable at first

Excellent Headphones


I've wanted these headphones for a while, since I first heard about them on youtube. I am very satisfied with them. I've been a Sony fan for a while. I'm typing this review up on my Sony laptop. I've always knew Sony makes quality products, so far...

Get uncomfortable after a while
