These headphones are very comfortable and the sound quality is great.
Cell
I have worn them for over 4 hours at a time and can still say that they are comfortable to wear, and I have a very large head.

I use these at work when I'm busy and need to concentrate. I work in a cubicle with people who like to laugh and joke LOUDLY. That's great, except when I have a deadline. I put these on and listen to a CD or the radio, and it shuts out the noise to the point where I can actually get some work done. I think the sound quality is great. The coiled cord is about 5 feet long or so and stretches out nicely. Sony's page says the cord is 9.8 feet long, extended. It allows me to move about a small area in my cubicle without it getting tangled. They are the only headphones I've been able to wear all day long without hurting my head. I'd buy them again, especially at this price.

These headphones are almost indistinguishable from the Sony 7506 model, which may well be the most popular headphones in American recording studios. I have both. I think the V600s are lighter weight, so a little more comfy for long sessions, or wearing all day in an office or something.
The cord attached to only one side is great. The phones "seal up" really well, with a true closed-back design. If you squeeze the cups shut together, you can just barely hear them, even if it's cranked up to bust your eardrums. This, in spite of the fact that they are plastic. You CANNOT hear the outside world when these phones are at normal levels. When they're cranked up, somebody could be shouting in your face, and you'd think they were lip-syncing.
Besides being well-sealed, and loud, these phones give a big, smooth sound that won't give you a headache or have you wondering what you're missing. As another reviewer mentioned, they're very efficient, producing a ton of volume with very little power - and it's volume you can stand, unlike lesser models that will hurt your ears at similar decibel levels.
If you're looking for the pro version - it's the 7506, and only available at musical/recording outlets. Here, all you have to do is click that button, and soon you'll be listening to headphones that I'd buy again and again if I lost or destroyed them...

Based on people's descriptions, I would guess that about half of these reviews were meant for the MDR-V6. The MDR-V6 is the one that is comparable to the mdr-7506, NOT the v600. If you are not familiar with the MDR line, I can understand how easy it is to confuse the model numbers. I own the V6 and my brother owns the MDR-7506 and i have directly compared these and found that are identical physically from what I can tell aesthetically and both have near identical sound. The MDR-V600 can be described as the black sheep in the family, since it looks, feels, and sounds very different than its more accomplished siblings.

The MDR-v600 is much bigger and bulkier than both the V6 and the mdr-7502. While it uses similar drivers, It has a huge earcup and large foam paddings that color the sound. Most noticeable is overbearing amount of bass this thing gives out, which drowns out the mids. This would account for some of muddiness that other reviewers have described. So how this headphone got to be called studio monitors is beyond me. This headphone is more like a pair of v6 that was modified to meet the mainstream demands of bassheads. Whereas v6 was half metal/half plastic, the v600 is all plastic. On the plus side, the huge earcups do help isolate sound a little better than the V6/7502.

If you want accurate sound that you can actually use as monitors, stick with the tried and true Sony models such as the v6 or 7502. Since the late 80's, these were among the most widely used monitor headphones in the TV and radio industry.

With an extensive collection of music CDs, why did I ever trust my favorite tunes to a cheap pair of mediocre headphones?
Well, no more. I recently upgraded to Sony MDR-V600 headphones. For what seems like the first time ever, I am able to distinguish the faintest melodies of individual instruments within my most beloved songs. Songs I have heard hundreds of times sound like new with these headphones.
For someone who depends almost exclusively on headphones for listening to music, the Sony MDR-V600 headphones are an absolute necessity. They are solid and well constructed, but not heavy. The headband and earcups are generously padded with a soft, smooth synthetic material (durable enough for frequent use, but not rugged). The fit is snug, not tight (and this from someone who has trouble finding baseball caps that fit). The earcups cover your ears and effectively filter out most background noise (leaving just you and your music). The cord extends from the left earcup only (much better than a Y cord) and is conveniently coiled, so it stretches when needed without dangling loosely about (unlike a straight cord which ends up stepped on or snagged most of the time).
As a bonus, the headphones collapse (with the headband wrapped around the earcups) and fit into a small synthetic pouch (included) for added portability.
Overall, the Sony MDR-V600 headphones are an outstanding value offering a balance of performance and price - a smart buy for any music enthusiast on a modest budget.

I have worked in radio for well over 30 years now and have used many well-known brands of headphones--Koss, Sennheiser, AKG--but none have pleased me more than Sony's MDR-V600. This product embodies everything I most desire in a headphone: a comfortable closed-ear style, essential for me to prevent microphone feedback; easily-adjustable headband; a coiled cord to keep it off the ground (and not stepped on!); a carrying case that keeps them neatly packed away and easily accessible; a 1/4" adapter that lets me use either a standard headphone jack or miniplug jack for an mp3 player. Then there's the sound: rich and full with excellent high-frequency response. The only reason I can't personally give these headphones 5 stars is that they eventually break--typically the hinges that fold the earcups into storage position. However, when you consider that they are worn up to 30 hours a week, and then constantly put on and taken off, it's probably a miracle that they last as long as they do. If you're a fan of open-air styles, this is NOT the headphone for you. But if you do like a closed-ear style, there is likely no better product for the money.
