Great for DJ use

Pros: Good sound isolation, loud, swivel cups, fairly durable

Cons: ear pads (quality and also mounting)

First a note that all ratings are in the context of using that as a DJ headphone.  Going by audiophile standards it would be lower.   The reason I've emphasized use as a DJ headphone is because that's even what they were originally marketed as.  Can read all this on wikipedia but to summarize Sony has four headphones in this series: (from oldest to newest) MDR-V6, MDR-V600, MDR-7506, and MDR-7509HD.  The V600 was created in response to a lot of DJs using the V6.  It emphasizes bass and can be loud in the treble range as well.  This is intentional because when queueing DJ's will usually either match based on the bass or high hats.   The MDR-V600...

Pros: Everything

Cons: Pleather

These headphones are the best I've worn yet. Admittedly, that's not saying much, as I've worn very few Audiophile-or-Studio-Quality headphones. However, I think they definitely can compete.   My only gripe is the pleather covering on the ear cups and headband. After two years of daily use abuse, it flakes off. Like peeling skin. Honestly, I think they're more comfortable without the pleather crap, but it's saddening to see them like this, as they pretty much look like I pulled them out of the garbage at a thrift store.   That is my warning. If a two-year-latent skin condition on your headphones is ok with you, I highly recommend these cans.
