    4.5/5,
    "Can compete with mid range sets!"
    Pros - Fun, warm bass, good detailed mids and highs, wide soundstage, exceptional comfort
    Cons - slightly recessed mids
    The only thing I will say about the build is that they are made of quality materials, stylish, and one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever wore. They are so lightweight but not fragile.
     
    SOUND
     
    These are slightly V shaped.
     
    BASS
     
    Great sub bass, typical of the MDR range. Warm and present. Not of basshead levels, but those looking for fun bass with impact you'll like these.
     
    MIDS
     
    These are blended in with the bass but still good detail. A bit forward. Harmonies sound great and of decent detail.
     
    HIGHS
     
    Really good highs for a set with the amount of bass they have. Cymbals sound great. Actually have a decent amount of detail.
     
    SOUNDSTAGE
     
    These have great wide soundstage. For the price point and size I'm really surprised how wide these go and the amount of detail and volume present. I have AKG k550s, and these have wider soundstage.
     
    Conclusion
     
    These came on the market at £100 and offer some fantastic value at £35. These are a great starter if you're interested in the Sony MDR range and will give you a good feel for the sound signature. I've heard the MDR 1As and although better, these are not that far off... especially as they're nearly £70 cheaper.
     
    A friend of mine agreed that these are better than Senn HD25iis which we both own. Senns have slightly more detail and i mean slightly, but these are much more fun. They are basically just a warmer version with only the type of bass that differs. Senns are more punchy and accurate, these are warmer with more presence. Both very similar level of detail in the MIDS and HIGHS. But they MDRs have a much much wider soundstage, HDs are very congested.
     
    These work really good for watching movies as you forget you're wearing them they are that comfy. Action movies are great, helped by the wide soundstage they have.
