I haven't owned many great pairs of headphones. My best pair was SkullCandy Titans. I know we all love to hate SkullCandy, but give Titans a try, they are awesome except for the fact that they are inear headphones and become extremely uncomfortable after a while. Anyway, back to these beauties. I needed something to listen to at the office without disturbing coworkers and without getting disturbed by them (which happens quite often). I just couldn't take another story about food choices of a 7 year old. So when I saw these on sale for a Benjamin, I simply couldn't resist. When i went to the store, there was only one box left. I picked up the box and then went to the displays for Beats (Dr Dre) and Bose. Beats sound beat down. They sound like someone trapped inside a box trying to get out. Bose sounded better than Beats, but then my Titans sound better than Bose. I was hoping against hope that the SONY would at least sound better than the Titans. Titans are in ear headphones and thus sound better than many over the ear headphones.
So I get home and hook these up to my laptop. My first listen of an MP3 with these blew me away. I heard a balanced sound but with something extra. Instruments I never heard before, vocals and chords that Titans hid from me so well. And the base, not overpowering, not interfering but invigorating. It was like I was playing the base guitar (which I can't) to the adoration of millions of fans on a sound stage (none of these things will ever happen). My hate for the Titans grows stronger every day. My second test was with an actual CD (didn't even know I still had one). The sound from the CD made me hug these babies. I even stopped worrying about how to reveal it to the Mrs this frivolous purchase, but only for a minute.

I've been buying these headphones for about fifteen years because when it comes to sound it just doesn't get any better. Fifteen years and STILL there are times when I'm listening with my feet up on the coffee table and I feel the bass booming from the floor through the legs of the table all the way through my feet and I quickly pull the headphones off worrying that everyone in the neighborhood must be hearing my speakers blasting at full volume. But no, the volume on the amp is off; it's just my Sonys making me feel like I'm at a live session. Crisp clarity too... I use these when I'm watching TV & movies which has now spoiled me from wanting to see movies in a cinema. Their sound systems just don't hold a candle to Sony V700 surroundsound (watch Apocalypse Now with those choppers whirling between your ears!).

The only bad thing is that yeah, I've been buying these headphones for fifteen years... a lot! If they last two years without breaking, that's a good two years. The sound keeps working but the damn piece of plastic that attaches to the swivel thingie cracks real easily (duct tape keeps it together for a couple of months) and eventually the thing just snaps off entirely. And I treat these phones real gingerly.

Still, I give it five stars because no other headphones give this much depth and clarity and I guess it's worth buying every couple of years. Keep your eyes on the price. In the late 90s they were around $200 and then they gradually went down to $100, as older models often do. Now they're $160... yikes! If you see them cheaper here or at some other reputable place for less, buy at least a couple of pairs!

One of my first quality headphones, these are solid. I eventually lost them and replaced with the Sony Digitals ANC, which were even better.

These were a lot more money back then too I think. 2002? Ish?

They could be made from entirely different materials these days for all I know, but this model was awesome back then.

I bought these when I was around 17. I'm now 31 and they still work and look new! They sound amazing! Only downside, they start to hurt your head (around the ears) after about an hour of wearing them. They're kind of heavy, but that is the price you pay for strudy, high quality headphones.

I have owned these headphones for years. Sound is awesome and they are super durable. I'm a drummer and I use them when playing to music but they are also nice for just relaxing and listening to music. The cord is super long and springy as well so I don't have to worry about pulling it out of a headphone jack. I haven't been the most careful with them either and they hold up no problem. Easily getting 10+ years out of these headphones which is unheard of. Expensive but totally worth it

Best headphones of all time. Sadly eventually the plastic gasket near the joint split longways. Pro tip, if you spot it early put a rubber band or something around it at one end and superglue it. You can milk another year that way if you're careful and change out the rubber band...lol. $300 headphones destroyed by failure to fix a $5 problem in manufacturing. Trying to convince myself to buy another pair.

Great sounding pair of headphones that has an excellent balance of a bass that you can feel without being overpowering or distorted and clarity with the mids and highs. This was my second pair, the first lasted a few years and this one lasted only a few months but both of them broke. The design is flawed in that the joints wear out and eventually break even without dropping them or some sort of accident.
