it's ok


great for the money because you do get what you pay for but if you listen to loud music and dont want other people to know what your listening to then you might want to spend the extra $40 to get some better one's.

sounds great, good head phone all around. If you use the music or movie switch it does change the sound just a little; movie gives you just a tad more bass than the music. Good feel over the ears, nice and lite, 11'5" foot cord and you get what you...

leaks like no OTHER!!, if you listen to your music past mid volume on any device you can clearly hear the lyrics and instraments. It literaly sound like you put a pillow on top of a steroe speaker thats how bad they leak

Great headphones for the price!


I would definitely recommend these headphones to anyone that is on a budget and is looking for descent headphones for a great price. If you are a gamer, avid music listener, or anyone who will be using these headphones for a long period of time, i...

I have owned these headphones since 2006 and they are definitely worth the price. Great sound, comfortable to wear, and durable, except the ear cushions. My favorite things about these headphones is the price, the extremely long cord that is provided,...

These headphones will cause some discomfort after wearing them for a long period of time. They tend to make your ears hurt after wearing them for a while and the "head band" can become uncomfortable because it has no padding

SONY - Studio Monitor Series Headphones (MDR-XD200)


Fantastic mid-ranges and good lows ; Very long cord ; Comfortable enough

Music/movie switches do nothing ; Leeks like a water balloon given to a kitten

Excellent Headphones


Great sound and excellent bass. It has the same driver system as the sony extra bass 500 model but for half the price. Real good deal. It also comes with a 2.5 jack adapter, thats cool if you are into serious audio stuff.

Great headphones!


UPS disappointed me this time around. I paid for the three day shipping and I got them nine days later...

They sound great! Very inexpensive as well. They are very comfortable and they feel like they aren't even there. I really like the sound switch mode also. Makes my video games sounds pretty lol

Like others have said, the cord is LONG! And also something that applies to me but not particularly to everyone, I have longer hair and it sometimes tends to get stuck in the slidey part of the headphones. Easy fix to that though is just to be careful...

Don't be fooled by the "SONY" brand name


I feel robbed. I don't care if this is only $25 or $29 because this headphones just feels and sounds like it should be under the $5 bin section.

Looks nice and big

Until you put em on your ears and start listening on them. Sounds HORRIBLE!! I wanted to try something different besides "Sennheiser" and boy was that a big mistake. Poor audio balance, no bass whatsoever, sounds cheap and feels even cheaper the moment...

Great for the Money


Great headphones - definitely a great value for such an inexpensive pair. Love the extra long chord and the over-sized over-the-ear style headphones. Very comfortable and the sound is great...they don't sound like a high end pair but definitely great...

Good headphones


Good headphones. Very happy. One thing, the cups and all are a bit big but still okay size. but the band that goes over your head, a little too big. It may look kinda funny, depending on people. But I love them. These are BIG headphones, i like big...
