Pros:Sound quality, price, good bang for your buck.

Cons:Cheaper housing - probably why they can give it to you at this price.

The Bottom Line: I definitely recommend it unless you're going to feel uncomfortable with it.


These headphones are pretty decent. I'd place them at the entry level of studio monitors, but at an economic value and packaging (hence the title).

The plastic band and cups are cheap. They are premolded and can break rather easily. In fact, I have a pair that are chipped and bent. At any moment you can have an accident that would send these out with tomorrow nights garbage. If you were to step on them by accident, sit on them, crush them in your heavy back pack, etc. Let's face it accidents happen and you do have to be relatively careful with these.

But don't let that get in the way of buying these. I think they're great as long as you don't abuse it. The sound quality is very good. Absolutely on a different scale then the MDR-V100 headphones. I've used a lot of monitor headphones in the past from other manufacturers that just don't compare in quality. You won't think the quality is compressed, muddy, or muffled with these headphones - but if you spend 10 bucks less for the lesser brands, you'll realize that 10 bucks goes a long way.

My last bit of information is (and I don't know how else to put this) that they can be uncomfortable if you have a big head. For me they fit perfect, but it can get to the point where it's entirely unsuitable for others. My roommate in college would borrow my headphones and the plastic binding started to bend and chip because of his head was big. Maybe it's comfortable now because he stretched it out, but just know that I do hear those who say it's uncomfortable because it can be for some people.
