Sony CD3000 vs today's closed cans - Page 8

post #106 of 108

Bump 2014 and they still hold up very well. But you can certainly argue that they are disqualified due to not isolating all that well :)

Bump. End of 2014. :)

 

I bought my Sony MDR-CD3000 for around $400 back in 1990 or 1991.   Yes, 23 years ago.  

 

Still love them.  I recently gave it a mini face-lift. (new earpads, headband)  I've always kept 

the MDR-CD3000 in its original huge hard case.   However, the original earpads and headband

started to flake in the last few years. (but considering the age, not surprising)

 

I cannot believe that I'm still using them on a regular basis.  I've owned many other big headphones

over the 23 years.  My most recent purchases were the Sennheiser HD598($99) and HD600($264),

thanks to Cyber Monday sale on Amazon.   Yet I'm still going back to the MDR-CD3000 frequently.  

For many vocal and classical pieces, they just sound natural and sweet.   

 

To be honest, I will never let go of them, even if someone offers me $200 or more.

I regret selling my cd3000 as well. I still have the cd1700 and it walks over the hd 598 in a direct comparison. Wish that I still keep the cd3000.
