Poor bass ; Poor treble ; Muddy midrange

Sony MDR-ZX500 review

 

Although they're not the best headphones money can buy, this set from Sony is comfortable, lightweight and has a big, fun sound

Just OK

 

Purchased as a shell shocker, would not have purchased at original price

Actually fairly decent sound, good cord with some strain relief

The vertical alignment is not comfortable for my ears

If you have big ears stay away !!!!

 

I bought these headphones expecting great things considering good reviews but was disappointed. The dept of the cups are insufficient so if your ears are big they will be irritated for every second you use it. Despite this the performance is very good...
