    One can assume the headphones are for a portable audio device or smart phone?
    Do you like your music bassy?
    Prefer vocals?

    Why just Sony? The Sony V6 is $69 with free US shipping from B&H. It is a classic. Many have been using the same one for over 20 years. That is how durable it is.

    If you can buy a different brand, then get the JVC HAS400 for around $25. The HAS400 has great detail.
     
    Some people change the earpads on these to velour ones for greater comfort, and less sweaty ears. It decreases the bass though, and costs around $20-$25 for a pair.

    I have the Sony MDR-V6s, but I do prefer to use my JVC HA-S500-Z (Gunmetal Gray) folding headphones.
    So a +1 on the HA-S400s.

    It has to be Sony because that is the brand selected for our project.

    It depends on the smartphone. Some might not power the V6  that well, and you might need a small portable amp like the Fiio E6. Perhaps you should consider the Sony ZX700. The ZX700 is only 24 ohms 106 db/mw, while the V6 is 63 ohms and
    106 db/mw, so the ZX700 will be easier to drive with a very low power source. The V6 is more neutral, while the ZX700 has a bit more bass.

    An amp isnt a prob. I might get a Fiio E7 once i buy one.
