Any thoughts on Sony ZX600's?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I haven't been able to find too much info on these headphones. I tried them on at Target and they seemed real comfy. I'm looking for a small, lightweight pair of cans to listen to while sitting up in bed. I have an old pair of Sennheiser PX200's and they pretty much fit the bill but aren't very full sounding as I'd like and are starting to fall apart. the other consideration was the newer PX200 II.Comfort is huge factor for me.

 

So if possible I'd like to see how these 2 compare or at least how the Sony Zx600's sound. I'm not looking to spend any more than about 75.00 as I already have the ATH-M50's-they are just too clunky for sitting in bed (like a lazy ass).

Thanks!!

agreed that the M50 sounds better but I think you compare apples with oranges there. A vastly different setup between the 2.

As a stand alone the ZX-600 is actually a fun headphone. ironically I personally think it sounds better than it's big brother the V55.

ZX-600 have that v shaped eq (which i quite like) but the bass isn't as boomy and overwhelming as the V55.

Soundwise the zx is not muddy but the sound isn't too forward. It's clear enough to enjoy the music and the comfort factor is fantastic for travel. You almost forget you are wearing them.

These are by no means a monitor headphone but at the price point they seem like fantastic value.

If anyone was looking for an extremely comfortable, lightweight, decent sounding and most importantly, cheap headphone, then you would do well to look at these. Got mine for 60 AUD and I think they are just right for train travel. Just my 2 cents worth as I have been able to make some well informed decisions about headphone purchases based upon well writetn reviews on here so I thought I would share some back.

could you compare these to the audio technica ath ws55?

My favorite very compact, cheap lightweight headphone is the JVC HA-S160. It is only around $12 or so. The next step up is imo the JVC HA-S650 for around $40. The HA-S160 sounds very neutral, while the HA-S650 has a warm sound.

 

If you don't mind a headphone that is bulkier, the Sony V6 sounds very nice and is extremely durable. The V6 might make your ears hot with extended use.

 

Imo the JVC HA-S160 at around $12 is the best bargain in a headphone, as imo it sounds as good or better than some headphones that are $50+.
