for their price not bad.....

Pros:low-cost, there quite comfy, the screw off jack is really handy.

Cons:because of their low-cost they tend not to be able to handle at high volumes.

The Bottom Line: For the skint dj out there who doesnt wanna fork out too much for headphones, these do the job very well at a good price.


A step down from the monstrously popular MDR-VDJ700 phones,
they have all you would expect from a lower model.
In most respects they are near identical to the 700's, sound quality being the obvious drawback, but for conventional listening purposes they do a great job.
They have all the mod-cons of the 700, they can fold, have reversible earcups (very handy in a monitoring situation), and the removable 1/4" jack so you can plug them into your discman.
Construction wise they are very tough (my pair have been through a few knocks) even though they look pretty flimsy when you look at them.
The price is brilliant, cheap, but not too cheap as to end up being a budget pair of headphones.
I would recommend these phones to someone who has a little more money than most but doesnt want to spend too much on 'just a pair of headphones'.
