Long time reader, first time poster:
I've had my MDR-V6's for over 10 years, and the drivers finally seem to be fading. I'm in the market for a new pair of Cans similar to the Sony's, however ideally I would like them to have similar portability, durability and comfort.
- The MDR-V6's fold "up and inwards" beneath the band, which is a space saving feature I appreciate.
- They don't crush my head too much when wearing for extended periods and with the Beyer ear pad mod it is as comfortable as can be.
- They have lasted forever which is always a plus.
I have tried and loved the Beyerdynamic range as well as the ATH-M50 for sound quality, however non of them have the same portability.
The V6-Moda's are close to what I'm going for in the overall package, but they don't fold up and they are slightly higher priced than I'd want.
My ideal price range is $60-150, but I'd be willing to spend more for a pair of Cans that are exactly what I'm looking for.
Otherwise I might just buy a new pair of MDR-V6s
I'd prefer closed, over ear cans without sound leakage.
Also, I already searched other posts related to the MDR-V6s, however non of the suggestions I found there seemed to fit the bill, so I'd appreciate any new insight.
