    I'm so afraid ,Fleetwood MAC The Dance.Put it in your ipod set the EQ to dance ,plug in the MDR-700.Don't be afraid the sounds your hearing is not live .but its as close to live music as you can get for less than 150.00 dollars.You will want to look around to make sure there is not a band in your room but with these headphones its easy to imagine . You are not going to believe what your hearing .The range from the deepest bass to the highest high is very very good .I use this song when I picked out these headphones because of the range of the bass and highs, I picked these headphones after listening to a lot of headphones and I got it down to 3,the sennheiser HD 650 for 400.00 ,the denon AH d2000 for 350.00 and the sony MDR-v700 for 145.00. I keep going back to the sony not because of the money but for the bass and the fact that you can hear the sticks hit the brums like your ear is just above it .I play drums so for me that sound is easy to hear .I know how it should sound and the sony picks it up the best and for the strings even at the 15th fret and higher the sound is just like it comes out of the amp. So if your looking for a great set of headphones take your ipod with you and plug it in you 'll hear what im talking about .P.S. If you put The dance by Fleetwood MAC on your ipod listen to Big Love ,In the song you will hear sounds comming off the string you never heard before trust me.

    This are some of the best sounding DJ headphones out there. I bought a pair and used the gently for about a year. In that time, they cracked at the joints 3 times (on both sides). I did some research and this is a VERY common problem. There is even a petition to have sony The joints are made of cheap plastic and crack very easily. This is clearly a design flaw and Sony refuses to take responsibility for it. Sony does not offer replacement parts and they want $60 to replace them! Save your money and get a pair of Technics instead. They sound just as good but last way longer.

    Reasonably good Value for money

    By 55trucker

    from Canada


    • Clean sound, heavy on the bass


    • Little top end, rather dull, signal rolls off at approx 7khz

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      I purchased these recently to supplement my MDR-V600 headphones. I do a lot of wav editing on my computer and I need a good all 'round headphone that has a wide frequency range to pick up on the all the noise/hiss/clicks that have to be removed from audio files. My 600's are extremely good for this as they have a good frequency range to hear all of this. When I picked up the 700's I expected them to be better than the 600's but I am really let down because these phones seems to have very little top end (the upper frequency range literally rolls off at approx 7kz. not anywhere close to 15khz & nowhere close to Sony's advertized 30khz). If they ARE supposed to go up to somewhere above 15-20khz perhaps someone else can chime in and comment as to such. (I do realize that these are now discontinued) They look nice and fit well but for what I use them for they are a disappointment.


      The best headphones in the world

      By yer916

      from PA

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      The title is no exaggeration, these are the best headphones money can buy. I've had these headphones for years and they sound exactly the same as when they came out of the package. You don't truly know what your favorite songs sound like until you listen to them with these guys. It's really a shame that they don't sell these new anymore. They really ought to, because they are significantly better than the newest Sony MDRs and studio monitor headphones. Just compare the specs...


      decent pair of headphones with some flaws

      By swaggchild

      from Madison, Wisconsin

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      i Really like these headphones though. They serve my needs effectively. They have a really nice sound in comparison to the cheap panasonic headphones i used to have. though they are kind of heavy and they are a bit awkward and uncomfortable. They can get really loud if you want. They also have good bass that isn't over powerful. I really enjoy listening to music with headphones.


      Over a decade on and still going strong

      By Jhostage

      from Bournemouth, UK

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      I originally purchased these the MDR-V700's back in the summer of 2000, and during the past 12 years they have been used for a vast range of activities including: Pro Club DJ-ing, home mixing and mastering as well as general day to day personal use. I have to say these are fantastic headphones with well balanced sound and amazing power handing abilities which is one of my main reasons for purchasing them in the first place. You can push the MDR-V700's very hard without suffering any distortion at all which is perfect when using them in loud environments such as a nightclub. In all this time they have never given me a days trouble and for me this represents a truly great investment which has lasted the test of time. I don't think I actually own any other tech that has lasted as long as these headphones with the exception of one of my Casio G-Shocks from about 2003.. Bottom line, these headphones will last if looked after. I hope this helps :) JT

      DJ Headphones are like shoes.

      By supergalactic

      from San Jose, CA

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      Lets face it DJs: Most beat up their gear. Theyre too caught up in the moment to preserve their gear the way a home audiophile would. The headphones get jerked around, then stuffed into a record bag. In my opinion, a good pair of DJ headphones are like a good pair of shoes or a good record. They get beat up because they are providing their use. No one complains to a shoe company about all the scuffs and wear and marks on a pair of $150 shoes after a year. No one complains to the record company when their vinyl gets scratched and crackly. As far as the damage to my headphones after SEVEN YEARS of use, I do have the stress cracks at the swivel joint, but they do not interfere with the performance. That area is made from several parts, so if one part cracks, the whole assembly does not fall apart. The headphones are good as new otherwise. I only noticed the cracks after people complained about them here, and they only appear as severe as in some of the reviewers photos if i pry them open. The tradeoff for the swivel cracks? A very articulated head band. True, Sony should re-engineer that area, but really it doesn't get in the way until then. Don't get these if you're a home listener or work in a studio environment. You don't need the articulated headband in those situations (typically). Get them if you need a great DJ reference headphone that rests on your head, rests on your neck, rests on your cheek, whatever your "look" is without them slipping....with the understanding that nightclub gear is perishable from time to time. I have never owned a pair of DJ headphones that didn't eventually crumble apart, but these have only cracked a bit.

      Currently not worth it.

      By shinigami

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      I've had a my MDR-V700 for quite a few years, now. I paid 100 some odd dollars for it, as I can remember; I wouldn't pay that price again. It's amazing Sony still sells this same subpar headseat, and are asking 150 dollars for it. Save yourself the trouble and look for other brands of headphones that are better engineered. While I have no problems with the sound (I bought them to rock out, and they serve that purpose), the rest of the phones are terrible as far as durability goes: the faux leather earpads and headbands flake away - the housing cracks - non replaceable cord I shouldn't be paying triple digits for some cheap all plastic headphone that cracks and creaks and flakes. I have V-Moda Crossfades, M-Audio Q40s, and Sennheiser HD600s; all are better products than the MDR-V700DJ. Spend your money wisely.

      Good Sound, Terrible Plastic Parts

      By Saltydog

      from Saskatoon SK

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      Have had these headphones at my office computer for the last year or so. Both swivel joints have many cracks in them. Also the plastic creaks whenever you turn your head which is magnified by 150% when you have the headphones on. The sound is nice to listen to with good low end performance as well as fairly clear highs. See Pictures showing the cracking.

      Too expensive to be so cheap

      By djdevj

      from Seattle, WA

      Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

      In my circle of djs these headphones are nicknamed "The Breakables". I don't know any dj who has owned a pair of these and NOT have them break. Regular use will produce stress fractures at the swivel, which will eventually turn into a break. Cheap plastics make up the joints and headband while serious materials make up the cups. These sound way better than the MDR-V500s but the 500s don't break at the hinges. The MDR-V500s do need regular pad replacements so it's a myriad of pros & cons. Great sound, but you're gonna need a backup pair...

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V700DJ Headphone:

        I have owned these headphones since 2007 and they are perfect. I do agree that they are made cheaply and dont seem very durable but i have nothing wrong with mine because i take care of them. i listen to them at lease 4 times a week on average. They have never been droped or mistreated. The fact is anything will break especially headphones when they are abused. I just bought the MDR-EX700 earbuds and i am extremly dissapointed about the sound quality. These DJ headphones blow them out of the water. If you want good sound quality and dont want to spend a ton of money then these are the ones for you.
