Sony MDR-XD200 Stereo Headphones

Decent set of headphones for the price

M-Techn1k

Pros: Lightweight, sound quality is not bad considering the price, cheap

Cons: Lack of sonic definition, no bass, build quality (cheap feel and makes creaking noises), ear pad not great for long sessions, 3m cable too long

As a budget closed-back set of headphones, I think they are not bad. The treble is rolled off quite a bit, which is not great in regard to clarity, but good in reducing fatigue on long sessions. Unfortunately, everything else do not promote long listening sessions, e.g. ear pads make your ears feel hot and sweaty after a while (2h or so), the creaking noise every time you move is very annoying.
