Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased these because, while I love my Sony MDRV6 headphones, the cord is terrible for walk around every day use. Those headphones are great if you're tethered to a desk, and I really like that they cover your entire ear, but the long coiled cord is constantly causing problems and getting tangled if I have them in my bag (or god forbid my pocket). So enter the MDRV55. I wish the cans were a little bigger so the ear cups covered my ears instead of sitting on the outside, but the trade off is that the headphones are slightly more compact, the shorter flat cable is a huge improvement when I'm walking around (and, funnily enough, terrible for when I'm at my desk), and they actually seem to sound better than my MDRV6 head phones when they're hooked up to my phone, since they seem to have a naturally better bass response and are just a little louder.
Overall, I think the MDRV6 headphones are better, but for the specific use case I purchased them for, these are fantastic.
I am working on my doctorate now but bought them in my Masters program. I use them on my computer everyday for 10 to 12 hours to listen to music while doing school work. They work perfect and have for a few years now. Excellent way to block out the world while I am writing a doctorate paper or mostly reading. They definitely help put me in that zone to do school work. I have never used them for anything else but I see people at the gym with them all the time. I recommend this product.
This is the first pair of headphones I have purchase for leisure listening - they are not super accurate in terms of bass, but they sure are fun to listen to. I have worn these for 6 hours at a time and not been fatigued after!
