Sony's NEW MDR-MA100 budget headphones. Something to watch? - Page 2

I use my MDR-MA100s at work with my Aune T1 atm (I'll be taking the T1 home when I get my new tubes in the mail). The RRP in AUS for these is $50, which I wouldn't pay, but for $8 I think it's a good buy.

EDIT: oh yeah, although they look like crap and are built poorly, they're very comfortable for me. I can literally wear them for the entire work day (7-8hrs) and my ears don't feel hot or fatigued, not so with the pair of V55s I have at home, which make my ears very hot after a relatively short period of time.

 

Wow, $8? Was this a sale price or something?

Picked one of these up for $8 just because why not. After a month I've finally found a use for which they excel. Feeling nostalgic, I dusted off an old gameboy and the speaker was quite quiet. Plugging ear buds in, there was a loud electronic hum, so I decided to try these. Nice and comfortable, very easy to drive, and actually has a pleasing sound for the price. Plus the hum was quite a bit quieter.
