MDR-V600 Review


The studio monitor series headphones with OFC connecting cord

MDR-V600 is specifically designed and engineered for super-end auditory functions. A great aura-nomic design is comfortable for the listening ears. An OFC (oxygen free copper) connecting cord enables optimum signal transmission with minimum clarity...

Portability factor is a constraint for MDR-V600. It may not be fitting to every head perfectly. The sound quality is little bit muddy. The ear cups contain poor quality leather skins that peel off within a couple of years

almost flat response


note that these have long coiled phone cords

almost flat response with a little bit more emphasis on bass, but that doesn't bother me. there's not a part of the frequency range that is over-emphasized, which makes it comfortable for a prolonged time of listening

a little bit too big for me. I would prefer leather covered cushions

Great Headphones


If they fail I'll be sure to let you know.

I've been looking for a set of headphones for late night TV viewing and these are perfect. My wife who is a violinist at the NY Philharmonic was so impressed with these that she picked up 2 sets for her open rehearsals. This is the 3rd set of...

Sony makes some pretty good headsets.

Great sound, never quite had a audiophile headset (or any, for this matter) ever. Delivered everything I needed and more. No complaints whatsoever

Took ~5 days to get

Like nothing else out there


Studio monitor headphones are quite a jump compared to normal consumer headphones. These Sony MDR-V600s will make you enjoy your audio a lot more with such high quality specifications that these possess.

Probably some of the most advanced headphones out there, and what a legacy the MDR-V600 carries. Because of their intended use as studio monitor headphones, they sound absolutely incredible with just about any device I tested, ranging from various...

The only feasible con that I have about these headphones is the cord length, but this is just a personal sketch of mine and really isn't worth deducting an egg for. The coiled cord is all part in the science that makes them sound good anyway ; One...

Awesome legacy


My dad gave me his when I was young. When his got to be 10-15 years old (not sure exactly) and padding was deteriorating, I figured I'd get another pair so I could leave those at work. The old ones sound good, and the new ones sound just as good

MDR-V600 Compared To MDR 7506


I wish I could return these pieces of slop because my $14 dollar SONYs sound better! Oh and for the rest of you people out there writing these sloppy absolutely amazing reviews for these absolutely sloppy headphones...give it a rest! Let the folks who...

I have never bothered to make a review on Newegg...but today I'm forced to. I bought these headphones on the basis of reviews here despite the fact I was suspicious that their value has fallen big time below the SONY MDR 7506! Now I know ; In...

The 1st piece of unstellar drivel I have ever got from Newegg...not their fault but SONYs and the fake reviews! At this very moment I am comparing the MDR 7506 with the PLASTIC MDR-V600. Result-- I wanna stomp on the MDR-V600!! If you want a...

I love these


I would definitely buy these again.

Great sound. Highs, mids and bass are all great ; Super comfortable ; Extra long cable - couldn't be happier

they get a bit hot compared to jogging headphones, but these are meant to be used while sitting down or in a studio where that's not an issue

Old Reliable


I purchased these about 12 years ago for our weekly live broadcast of our church service at a Sony Outlet store. They were refurbished and at a great price. They still are in use and sound as good as new.I have replaced the ear cushions twice but that...

Product Specifications

Covering a wide response range from low bass to very high frequencies, Sony's Studio Monitor MDR-V600 headphones are well suited for virtually any audio application including use with today's digital sources. Dynamic, closed-type construction keeps out ambient noise while creating a comfortable, sealed resonance chamber to maximize sonic purity. Studio Monitor series headphones incorporates state-of-the art engineering design to produce excellent sound quality and wearing comfort to accommodate high end consumer or professional applications. Circum-aural earcup design in the natural shape of the human ear positions the driver unit at a correct distance from the ear canal and creates a sealed resonance chamber over the earlobe itself, reducing pressure on the ear for a more comfortable fit, especially during extended listening sessions. 40mm driver unit is positioned within the earcup at an angle, which directly corresponds to the angle of the opening of the ear canal for the most natural listening experience possible. Neodymium magnet is small, yet five times more powerful than a ferrite magnet of comparable size, to provide a better headphone without increasing the overall size and weight of the driver unit. Copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil combines the strength and conductivity of a copper core with a lightweight outer coating of aluminum to expand and contract as electrical impulses pass through it, creating the physical movement of the diaphragm. MDR-V600 features reversible earcups for single-side monitoring to let vocalists and musicians hear external surrounding sounds naturally while simultaneously listening through one side of the headphones. Cushioned headband adds to wearing comfort and a better overall fit. Oxygen-free copper (OFC) connecting cord is highly conductive for maximum signal transmission with very low distortion. Gold-plated stereo Unimatch plug adaptor with built-in self-cleaning feature permits use with standard 1/4" jacks on hi-fi components or stereo mini jacks on personal audio products; screw-type design for a more secure connection. Gold plating maximizes contact efficiency to help prevent sound deterioration after many years of use.
