Rated 5 out of 5 by DJwoOdepiC INSANELY EPIC
These headphones are amazing! I got them on sale for $80, which is great for normally $120. I never expected such awesomeness for that little. Not only do they look boss, but sound so good! They add a whole new dimension to the song. DONT BUY ANY OTHER HEADPHONES THAN THESE! At the store I asked if they had any other headphones that they would recommend over these, so I tried out the "better" ones, and they had overpopulated and muddy bass. These have INCREDIBLE highs and lows. These are better sounding than the $800 beats pros, and MANY other headphones, and buying these, you are definitely not giving up style. These have a fresh, cool look, and the design is practical. I am actually wearing them as I write this review, and they are COMFORTABLE. I practically don't even realize they are there. Buy these, which are by far the best bang-for-the-buck headphones you could possibly buy. Just gonna say again..... THEY SOUND SO GOOD!

Rated 4 out of 5 by supson Good headphones, great sound, fair price.
These headphones have a rather incredible sound for the price. The sound is clear and defined at any volume. With amazing mids, highs, and good bass. Could be comparable (or even better than) to some $250 Sennheiser over ears. They aren't the most comfortable of headphones and they make your ears hot after 30-40 minutes of listening. The press against your ears firmly. The headband rubber grips very well, so they don't fall off even if you shake your head around. They look fairly stylish. I prefer the white and gray, and black and red; over the black and blue. The cable is good and doesn't get tangled very easily. It is very compact and the adjustment is good for mid to large sized heads. This is an un-bias opinion. I do own these headphones, and I am glad I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Combustiblemons Overall good quality, but too much bass
I've only had these for a few days, so I can't say whether they will stand up to the test of time, but they are of good build quality. The sound is good and generally pretty clear, but the bass tends to drown out the sounds in certain songs and listening to non-music content (podcasts, etc.). Dubstep in particular sounds really good on these headphones. Cord is nice because it's flat, but I could have used a couple more feet of length. If this pair had included a bass boost toggle and 2 ft of more cord length, they would be perfect, 5/5 no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nexeus10 Fantastic set for the price!
In going through buying a new product I research it to death and compare it to similar priced models by competitors I find on the internet. I did the same with these. It took me a while to decide if I wanted to get them especially since they were on ear headphones instead of over ear which generally like more. However, I could not be more pleased, I expected a nice sounding pair of headphones but the level of fidelity on these is amazing. The first thing I did when I got them was just a simple test on my computer. I brought up just a quick YouTube video of one of my favorite songs and I could hear the difference in just the commercial that played. But let's go over what exactly I like about them.
For one the bass is fantastic, you get hard hitting bass that is strong but not overwhelming so it doesn't overpower the mids and the highs. All the low's are extremely rich and sound fantastic, I've run them through many genre's and all my music sounds better on these. Just for reference, I've run them through classical music, heavy metal, techno, dubstep, a capella, some pop, and everything sounds great.
Second pro is the comfort, I thought on ear headphones would get really uncomfortable really fast but the pads on these things are super soft and comfortable, the material that actually covers the headphones is also very soft and doesn't rub on your ears too much when putting them on and taking them off a lot. The band at the top is really comfortable as well and I almost never have to re-situate the headphones. Just put them on and go. However the only con is also in the comfort and that's that your head get pretty hot with these beasts on after extended periods of use but that's usually true for any larger model headphones anyway so it didn't take a star off.
The last couple things I really like is the cord on it is fantastic, it's flat and only on one side so it doesn't get in the way if you want to eat or write while listening. And they drown outside out pretty well also. The music comes through crisp and clear and I don't have to put them very loud, but even if I ramp them up there's no distortion.
Overall I would absolutely recommend these to a friend as they are 100% worth it for the price, and I actually have recommended them to one of my best friends and he got them and loves them as well. Fantastic bang for your buck great job sony!

I was looking into headphones $100-$400. When I saw the price on these, lower than $100 I was AMAZED by the sound quality compared to higher priced headphones. I have compared them to my friend's $500 headphones and they sound almost identical. The bass is perfect, the clarity is perfect. They look amazing. Cable is long enough for what I use them for. I have no complaints whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HVF4 One of my Favorite Headphones EVER!
I received this a little over a year ago as a birthday gift from my girlfriend, and all I can say is WOW! I really love these headphones! If you listen to Metal these are for you! The bass in these headphones are perfect and the Treble is also awesome! They are designed for DJ's but if you are a Metalhead....BUY THEM! YOU WONT REGRET THEM!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TiPi Greatest headphones ever!
Bought these headphones about a half a year ago and I love 'em!
They sound and look awesome, feel great - though you may have to get used to the feel of it for the first week.
It folds very compactly. Both sides can swivel 90 degrees sideways and can swivel all the way backwards so that you could look awesome while doing some dj stuff :P
The cord is a bit short imo, still looking for a matching flat extension cable.
Overall awesome product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KDKD Somewhat Disappointed
This was my 1st "true" headphone purchase in many years. For my listening preference, these are too bass heavy for my liking and I wish that there was more treble and detail. But, more disappointing than the sound reproduced, is the noticible creeking from the plastic construction of the headphone. Every little turn of the head or neck, facial expression etc. causes an annoying audible creeking of the parts. If the return period had not expired, I would have returned and looked at other options.
