Sony MDR-V6

 

With fantastic audio quality for a low price point, the Sony MDR-V6s are great studio monitors for the music hobbyist or student who isn't ready to shell out several grand for a setup at home. These headphones have been around for a long time, and it's...

Sony may not call the MDR-V6s "Old reliable," but they'd earn the moniker.

Sony MDR-V6 Review

 

These Sony MDR-V6 headphones have impressed me for decades. They sound and feel great, have magnificent deep bass, have plenty of sensitivity so they never need external amplification, and fold-up for travel. For about $100, they are a steal.

Sony MDR V6

 

Great rich sound, crisp bass response without distortion or washiness. Super comfortable, padded headband and big enough to cover your whole ear to keep outside sound out

Somewhat larger than most headphones, they're moderately bulky for portable audio. Ear padding is comfortable, but can tear or fray with extended use. External wires sometimes get twisted and tangled in the foldable design

These headphones provide clarity and durability while remaining comfortable and versatile. They're really good for listening to music, mixing and tracking.

MDR-V6 - Excellent Buy

 

Comfortable, durable, easy to stow and detailed sound.

Cord is rather heavy on the head if listening from far away.

Definitely Studio Headphones

 

If you're looking for very high quality and super detailed sound, these may be for you. Sounds from either end of the equalizer come as intended by the artist: treble is crisp and clear while bass is powerful and solid. Bass-heavy music is especially...

SONY MDR-V6

 

Amazing sound, great price, extremely comfortable, very affordable

Broke with minimal use (5-10 hours a week tops) after about 3 months, sound only comes out of the left speaker. They weren't dropped or stepped on or damaged in any way, it just stopped working out of nowhere. A little disappointing because I bought...

Awesome Headphones

 

I had the same Sony Headphones, only they were a MDR-V4, which I got in the 1980's for use with my keyboard. When looking for a newer pair, I found the MDR-V6, which look like the newest of this model, and the sound quality is even better! I will use...

The only headphones I'll ever buy...

 

I've been using this exact headphone since I was 12 years old. I've always come back to it for gaming and music. I wouldn't choose anything else. Don't be fooled by Bose and their brand name - stick with Sony
