5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely Studio Headphones

Pros: If you're looking for very high quality and super detailed sound, these may be for you. Sounds from either end of the equalizer come as intended by the artist: treble is crisp and clear while bass is powerful and solid. Bass-heavy music is especially satisfying to listen to. The headphones are built exceptionally well. I expect the entire thing to last for a very long time. The pads are very comfortable and I can wear the headphones for hours on end. The cable is a tad heavy, but the coiled design makes it easy to manage and I have no problem stretching the cable 1.5 meters from rest to move around. The large, metal plug design is a godsend, because most of my other earphones/headphones have had wear & tear around the plug area. Also, the headphone's classic and spartan design makes it quite the looker.

- high quality, detailed sound
- unaltered, unbiased sound
- long-lasting build quality
- solid plug design
- classic and spartan aesthetic

5 out of 5 eggsbuy these

Pros: Sound great- well built and fit nice, priced right.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: There is a reason these things have such a high user review rating. Very good sound and build. Much better than some much more expensive headsets I have used.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing sound, great price, extremely comfortable, very affordable.

Cons: Broke with minimal use (5-10 hours a week tops) after about 3 months, sound only comes out of the left speaker. They weren't dropped or stepped on or damaged in any way, it just stopped working out of nowhere. A little disappointing because I bought these headphones pretty much because of all the reviews saying how good quality and long lasting they are.

5 out of 5 eggsAccurate, durable, comfortable

Pros: The first thing you need to understand about these is that they're studio monitors. They're made to output sound exactly as it should be. The extremely deep smooth bass doesn't overpower the mids and highs (if you want that, set your EQ).

The second thing you should understand is these are extremely durable. If you treat these right, they'll last you forever. The only issue with wear I've had is the stickers coming off and the ear pads coming apart after a couple years of really heavy use (replacement velour pads by beyerdynamic are available and worth it). I've rolled over on these in my sleep a few times over the years and had one of the ear pieces pop out. It's really simple to just pop it back in and the plastic (that holds the metal ear piece) is extremely solid.

These are not ultra-portable, because of the extremely long cord length, but they do fold up fairly nice. The isolation and sound-leakage isn't great, but much better than anything else that has anywhere near as good audio quality. You could get away with listening to these on an airplane without disturbing the person next to you too much. Also, the cord can be tucked away in your pocket or twist-tied up.

If all you want is a quality, durable design with unbiased sound, buy these.

Cons: The ear pads will probably have to be replaced after around the equivalent of a year of daily heavy use.

The sound accuracy doesn't discriminate against poor quality sources, so lossy digital music audio artifacts might be more noticeable.

Can make your expensive home theater system sound terrible in comparison.

Other Thoughts: These also do have a bit of a burn-in period. You should hold your judgement until you've put at least 100 hours through them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones

Pros: I bought these over a year ago and have yet to write a review. These headphones are, by far, the most comfortable and best sounding I have ever worn. I keep these things on for hours and the only problem over that extremely long period of time is my ears finally start to get warm. If mine were to be lost, stolen, or broke then I would immediately order another set.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is after over a year of use, some of the material that connects to the inside of the earphone is beginning to tear. Granted, that could be more from my rough use as opposed to the actual quality of the headphones.

5 out of 5 eggsThe only headphones I'll ever buy...

Pros: I've been using this exact headphone since I was 12 years old. I've always come back to it for gaming and music. I wouldn't choose anything else. Don't be fooled by Bose and their brand name - stick with Sony.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsLove them so much!

Pros: Well first, the gold case with the ribbon and stuff was a really nice presentation lol. But these headphones are so amazing and I bought them when they were $70! I've listened to beats before and these rival beats. They are super comfortable. The sound quality is amazing. The bass is good. They also come with a little bag/case to hold them in. They fold up nicely and are easy to store. I did just receive them so in 6 months I will update and let you know if they hold up.

Cons: No cons so far.

Other Thoughts: These would be great for travel and everyday use. When they're on your head people next to you can't hear it even if you play it pretty loud. (don't be that guy who thinks he's a dj and blasts music.) Highly recommend these.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Has great smooth sound and has worked flawlessly for over a year. Even after some rough treatment it has done an amazing job. Never had a serious issue.

Cons: They can get a little uncomfortable, but you get used to it. The bass is not as deep as you would expect, but this has not been an issue for me since having deep throbbing bass sounds is not a priority for me.
