Product Reviews for Sony Studio Monitor Series MDRV150 Headphone
Great headphones for what they are
from Undisclosed on 11/24/2010
flexible headphones, Great sound for the price, long durable cord
Can get pretty uncomfortable after a while
I think for only $20 these are excellent headphones. I've had them for about two years now and they still work perfectly. They sound perfectly fine (remember you are paying $20 so don't expect top of the line quality here). The cord is very durable. The headphones are plastic, but if you don't drop a big rock on them I'm sure you'll be fine. The only problem I have with the headphones is the fact that after leaving them on for a while they can get very uncomfortable. They can either begin to hurt, make you very warm, or just suffocate your ear. They don't really go around the ear that well, but they are more than adequate for casual audio playback.
For the price you can't go wrong!

Good sound quality, small size good for travel.
ear pads flaking, Tight fit
I bought these headphones in 2007 and they are still holding up well to this day. As long as you take care of them and don't accidentally step on them or bend the headband too far or too often, these headphones can last a really long time.

Comfortable, Durable cord, Great Bass, very warm sound
somewhat weak treble
I've been comparing these headphones to a variety of other on ear/over ear headphones I own (Sennheiser PX100, HD202 & JVC Flats) and I must say these are still my favs. PX100's - too much bass, not enough treble. HD202 - great sound but very uncomfortable for extended periods. JVC Flats - decent sound but not enough bass and a little too much treble for my taste. The MDR V150s seem to do everything I want respectably well (nice bass but overall balanced sound, very comfortable and durable). Granted, I did tweak the EQ settings on my Sony Walkman to compensate for weak treble but now they sound great and I find myself reaching for them more often than not while relaxing at home. Overall, I would grade them a B but the price point pushes them to an A.

Good sound, Very inexpensive
somewhat fragil, very long cord
For $20 you cant go wrong. i go these just so i had some headphones until i got something better but they amazed me from the get go. very comfortable, lightweight, and they sound pretty good. they hardly cancel out noise but they arent made for that. however, mine broke cuz the cord is sooo long and fat and i kept stuffing it in my pocket so it woodnt b in my way. :/ so i dont hav them anymore but while they lasted they were fantastic!

Comes with a Studio Jack, Cost, Excelent sound, Great Bass, Lightweight, Well-fitting
Can hurt after wearing for long periods of time
These headphones are true performers. I purchased these a couple of weeks back to replace my older, in-ear headphones, and I have not been disappointed with the quality. The bass is great, the sound is excellent, and I love the fact that it came with a different jack for different styles of listening/recording.
