This review is from: SONY Black MDR-V55/BR DJ Style Headphone (Black/Red)
Pros: Sound is clear, and accurate. Very portable, folds up nicely, perfect to carry in a backpack. Competes with headphones at a higher price point. Tangle-free cord. Sounds and looks the same as the day I bought it. Easy to adjust to fit, plenty of options for sizing. Feels sturdy, unless you are trying to, I doubt you will break these.
Cons: Uncomfortable for long sessions of listening. Major issue is addressed below.
Other Thoughts: The one glaring oversight of this set of headphones is that although the plastic appears to be high-quality and feels nice, the hinges have a tendency to be on the squeaky side of things. I have read similar reviews that support this same problem. If moving around a lot, the hinges where the headset folds up will rub together and the squeak is loud enough to be heard over any music that you will be playing.
Even with this situation with the squeaking, I would still suggest buying these if they are on sale. I use this headset for casual listening on the bus and in the car, like I said, don't expect to take these on your morning jog or walk around with these because if your pair squeaks like mine does it will get old quick.
Consider these if on sale, for stationary listeners.
