Sony MDR-V900 Headphones - Quality Sound and Construction

May 26, 2002
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Quality cord and construction. Clear and clean sound quality. Holds adjustments

Cons:A bit warm on the ears.

The Bottom Line: Great sound quality and construction. While a little warm, they are comfortable. Well suited to any reference task.


Sony products, particularly at their high end range, tend to be well researched, well constructed and good values. The MDR-V900 headphones are no exception. They offer an excellent value and will offer years of reliable studio reference service.

Here is a list of physical features found on the MDR-V900:
- Quality 9.8 foot cable, which is coiled and extends from the left ear piece. While non coiled cables are excellent for musicians tracking in the studio, the coiled cable is well suited to the console area where uncoiled cords tend to get in the way (at least in my experience). The cable is terminated with a 1/8 inch gold plated jack and comes with a 1/4 inch gold plated adapter. The adapter is well built and once in place stays put.

- Quality structural components offer a solid feel, these are not wimpy headphones.

- Adjustable head size arms on each side which have "click stops" and numbered settings. This is a great feature, as cheaper headphones tend to change their length inopportune times. If the size is changed you can return the size you had if you remember the numbered setting.

- Fully reversible ear piece. Ear piece moves several degrees in rotation for ergonomic comfort. The ear pieces are comfortable, but a little on the warm side. This is a trade off; short term comfort and sound quality, versus heat build up. Not a problem for one or two takes.

- Headphones fold up quite small for transport and storage.

On the sound specs, the MDR-V900 headphones are no slouch either. Offering a Frequency Response of 5Hz - 30kHz, the MDR-V900 gives clean and accurate output. Weight is 10.8 ounces, not heavy, but not the lightest headphones. Again this is a trade off, weight versus sound quality. These are excellent reference "cans", for long listening you may need a lighter, less expense headphone.
