What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony MDR-V55 DJ Stereo Headphones
  • These headphones sound good, look great and have some neat design details that appeal to me.
  • Everything sounds good through them and they're comfy for a good 3-4 hours of use.
  • Amazing sound. Well worth the money. Great for the home or indoors.
  • I use them mostly with my electric piano and the sound is really clear.
  • I like these headphones, the sound is good, decent bass without being excessive, solid mids and comfortable highs.
Sony MDR-ZX310 Foldable Headphones
  • The sound is well balanced. You can hear different instruments and they provide a decent sound stage with a clear focus on vocals.
  • Strong and good quality built, good sound quality but obviously not the best as they aren’t professional or high range headphones at all.
  • Comfortable, good overall sound quality, doesn't feel cheap.
  • They're brilliant, great sound quality, barely any leakage and they sit well on my head and ears.
  • The bass is clear, but not overpowering. If you do like strong and bass-heavy sound, then these headphones are not for you.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony MDR-V55 DJ Stereo Headphones
  • Portability is excellent as they fold up neatly.
  • There are 10 different sizes which go from very small to HUGE!
  • They are a bit small in size no real noise cancellation and the wire is always too short.
  • The only thing I didn't like was the size. My head is small and they are rather BIG.
  • A bit big for my head size without adjusting them to to be more loose.
Sony MDR-ZX310 Foldable Headphones
  • The headphones feels very sturdy and look stylish. They fold up to a reasonable size.
  • They fold down into a smaller size, perhaps the size of a baseball. Very happy with this product.
  • Build quality is impressive considering the price and they fold up easily and into a pretty compact size.
  • Great that you have position them for a safer transport and adjustable for all head sizes.
  • They are light-weight, but can get a little uncomfortable on adult sized ears, if worn for a long time (a couple of hours plus).

What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-V55 DJ Stereo Headphones
  • I love the look of these headphones and they have a very useful size adjustment feature.
  • One of the best features of these, is how small they fold up to store them.
  • All the features are great - single flat cord, comfortable, fold-up design and amazing sounds.
  • They are also very stylish, and feature a tangle-free flat cord.
  • These headphones add extra bass, and there is unfortunately no choice as to whether you can turn such a feature like this off.
Sony MDR-ZX310 Foldable Headphones
  • They do a reasonable job of excluding background noise given they have no noise reduction feature.
  • The short cable is great for use with a phone to listen to music etc. as it doesn't get tangled and you don't have to could miles of it into a pocket.
  • The cord is cleverly anti-tangle, too. I love these for doing a good job for almost no money.
  • The headphones pack away neatly and this is probably one of the best features as I don't worry about them breaking when I put them in my bag.
  • Inline remote control would be the only missing feature, but i knew this when i purchased.
