Sony MDR-ZX700 Review

 

The Sony ZX700 headphones seem like they're meant to appeal to audiophiles and studio pros, but with such a short cord, sterile sound and no ¼-inch adapter included, we doubt they will end up being the top choice of either.

Excellent Vintage Sound

 

As others have described, the sound quality is very pleasant and reproduction true to a vintage sound. Very comfortable. Note the cord length and connector type. You probably need an extension and an adapter if you are using 1/4" plugs like in most...

Sound easily worth more than the $120 price tag

 

A little over a month ago I purchased these headphones in my first attempt at upgrading how I listen to music and to double as monitor headphones for my beginning interest in recording guitar. After loving them I returned them for a pair of V6 after a...

Sound is very clean and revealing for the price / padding is plush

Absolutely blown away! Audiophiles take note.

 

I just bought the MDR-ZX700 to replace my MDR-V6s for use with my MP3 player commuting around New York on the train, and am completely blown away!

Hi-Fi Drivers but Lo-Fi CUP Design with NoN Dynamic Lifeless Exaggerated by Mids Fatigue For Hearing Impaired!?

 

I needed new same constructed drivers for the SA3000, which originals were replaced in a defective SA5000. Drivers transplanted into SA3000 with added 10 Ohm ground resistor to up the impedance to 34 Ohms. Now the SQ is Hi-Fi without using extra...
