The sound quality of the headphones is about as good as my in-ear earphones (sony MDR-XB40EX), but the sound levels i an achieve with these are much. much higher.
For comfort they are the best i've ever had, fit's snuggly around my ear lobes, and i love the vibrations they give when they are loud, however, some people may find the heat that accumulates uncomfortable, but for me, not a problem. Also, listening to them for hours (and falling asleep with them on) proves to me they are superbly… Read Full Review

Within not even a month of having these, i started to only get sound out of one headphone, then the other went within a week, so for the past month, ive had to hold the headphones in a certain way with my hands to get the sound out of them. Yes they got great sound quality, but the jack is messed up. Ive read other reviews where people read the same thing. I would never buy a pair of these again, i would only use them if i got another pair for free. I would not recommend these to a friend. I… Read Full Review

I have owned a set of Sony MDR-V700 for almost 5 years now and they are still going strong! (only a slight crack on one of the swivel joints)
One driver on the original pair I had stopped working after about 2-3 months, but Sony's customer service was great (as always) and sent a brand new pair promtly. Pretty much perfect for what they were design for, a DJ. They easily produce a loud, clear sound which makes them great for use in loud environments, ie. clubs. My only gripe is that they… Read Full Review

The Sony Sony MDR-V700 are badly designed,they are knowing to break at the swivel
points.Sony deny it's a design fault because they would have to replace so many of them.My advice is not to buy them just check on the internet and you will see for yourself… Read Full Review

Sony MDR-V700 are a quality set of headphones. As noted by others, they are great for listening to IPod or ITunes music and tend to make the music "larger than life." They accomplish this however, by emphasizing the bass. They do not offer a true sound representation. I use these in the studio for composing and arranging and rough mixes--but the mixes are rough. After the composition and arrangement solidify, I often offset their bias with a master EQ that rolls off the bass and start the… Read Full Review

Essentially the MDR-V700's are DJ headphones, and probably the best ones on the current market in terms of value for money. Sound quality is okay, nowhere near as good as open-back or studio headphones from the likes of Sennheiser or Bayer, but as a working DJ in a loud environment these are perfect. I'm on my second pair (twice-weekly use) and would definitely buy again… Read Full Review

These headphones are primarily designed for DJ use and unless you are a DJ or listen regularly to dance music, I would look elsewhere as these tend to portray music in a slightly "larger than life" way, which while initially may grab your attention, actually drowns out smaller details found in more acoustic music. Sounds like fingernails plucking on a guitar string, or someone coughing in an audience will be harder to detect. Open back designs from companies like Beyerdynamic tend to offer a… Read Full Review

Sony MDR-V700 are music lover's headphones, although audiophilic jazz freaks won't like them.
Fabulously musical headphones especially when used with iPods and personal stereos, in which application they are far superior to much more expensive designs due to their better electrical characteristics e.g. sensitivity and impedance: you can obtain generous but safe volume levels. Senheiser's HD650 and HD555 are no good with any personal stereos I've tried whereas the Sony's make them sound… Read Full Review

I got my headphones from Amazon UK for £42 with delivery and after reading about the z700s and also fake version of these headphones i was quite worried about not getting the real deal. (If you are not aware of the z700s then research before buying). However they arrived in all their genuine v700 glory. I bought these for personal use, on the train etc, as i'm not a DJ and i never will be.
Firstly, the sound quality is amazing. The frequency range is astonishing, it goes from 5 - 30,000 hertz… Read Full Review

Great headphones for the amount of time I've had them. Great sound, had them for 4 years now, still going strong, although i had to rig the left headphone with a tie wrap. Heavy... real heavy for constantly using them… Read Full Review

The Sony MDR-V700 are absolutely brilliant if you are the only user, and they are lovingly cared for. The sound quality is way beyond anything I have ever heard. Not cheap - but seriously worth it.
Dont buy, if like me you leave them lying around or they get knocked about. They will break easily. … Read Full Review

Great sound, right side speaker broke!!! I didn't even drop them or anything. I've noticed maniy other reports of the same. It must be a manufacturing defect or concise engineering design to make you buy another pair because you love the sound so much. Lame??!!… Read Full Review

I have been a professional DJ for over 20 years now and I have not found a better head phone. The mounting points are weak but Sony have now introduced a mark 2 with reinforced joins.
However, my major problem is the amount of fakes that have flooded the market - I have so far been sent three sets of fakes that have been sent straight back.
They are loose, the cups rotate and the sound is poor. If one side of your Sony's has dropped out after only a week or whatever, chances are they are… Read Full Review
