Sony MDR-ZX300 worth about $14 bucks?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I can get these for around $14 dollars(original price is $22.49) after taxes since I am buying them off amazon.com and have a 10 dollar promotional credit and wondering these are worth $14 or should I put down $45 for the MDR-zx600. I Usually prefer earphones which I currently have Jaybird Bluebud x, Ultimate ears 350, Klipsch s4, Sony XBA-2 and the buds that come with my Samsung galaxy s4 ( are decent since I got them for free)

These look really stylish. I've seen them around and people wearing them, especially the red ones, seem happy enough. If they're comfortable you've got a real winner!

Well I don't go on here to find out they are stylish tongue.gif. While I agree I just really want to know do they sound good for a pair 40 dollar headphones (Msrp). I am also a noob with "cans" and only been using earphones for years

oooo, fair enough. I have no idea how they sound, though I wouldn't expect anything great.

I hope this isn't too late for you! I own the Sony MDR-ZX300, and I like the sound. Bass is punchy, mids are emphasized, and highs are fairly clear. I thought they compared pretty well to a friend's $400 Sennheisers (the HD 650, I think). The Sennheisers were a little clearer (but it was only noticeable if I really concentrated on it), and the bass comes through a little richer on the Sony than on the Sennheisers.

 

So, I found the sub-$30 ZX300 to be 95% as good, soundwise, as the $400 Sennheiser HD 650. Considering that the Sony runs less than 10% of the price, I think that's a bargain! I recommend the ZX300 to anyone who wants a good set of cans for a reasonable amount of money.

I tried one and sounds fairly awful. Loose bass, mediocre mids, and muffled highs, and I'm fairly sure that it doesn't sound anything like the Senns...even if I haven´t tried them.
