I have owned these headphones since 2002. I have also owned some over-ear grados, sennheisser 560s and Etymotic Headphones. Even for the most discriminating audiophiles, the sound quality is superb. The large 50mm driver and biocellulose diaphram deliver an extremely accurate sound reproduction. Some people complain that Sony's can't give the same warmth of sound as some German and American head-phones, but I disagree, these phones are among the best I have owned and they are extremely comfortable for extend wear despite their enormous size.

I am reviewing these phones because I want people to know that it doesn't deserve a 5 star rating because it isn't that durable. I listen to head phones more than most people do, since I probably have them on my head about 8 hours a day (due to the nature of my work) My complaints are the head band, which deforms after wearing it for a long period of time and now I have noticed that the metal attachment is cutting through the leather slightly and probably will need to be replaced. The other problem I have had is with the cable.

When the sound started to cut out, I initially thought there was a problem with my system. Then I tried them in my ipod and same problem. Long story short, after a couple of calls to Sony's customer service and some diagnostic efforts, it turns out the pure copper cord isn't very durable like braided wires. Probably due to metal fatigue, it lost connectivity about an inch into the phones. Make sure that you are really careful with the cable like don't pull on the phones by the cable. It took a while to diagnose, but I finally fixed them. If you send them to a repair professional, expect it to be expensive.

In summary, these are great headphones, expensive but not excessively so, like the R10's. Just be careful as they need to be handled with some care.

These are the BEST headphones that Sony ever made. Period.

I have owned my first pair since 1991. 23 years later, they still sound amazing,
even when compared to "modern" $500+ headphones.

You can order replacement earpads for about $11 right here on Amazon.com.

I used to own a pair of CD2K, its always been too bright for me, and bass roll off when goes real deep with a good amp. So i decided to upgrade, well... to these $400 pair. If you have a reasonable source, and a good tube amp, you can't go wrong with CD3K. But if you are planning to use them in a MP3 player, or a computer sound card, they ain't for you as they will review all flaws in your system. Even if you use a SS amp, you need a smooth (and probably expensive) top notch to drive them to sound good.

But highly recommended!

These are the best sounding headphones I have ever experienced. They are quite large but very comfortable since they are not heavy and the headband is well designed. The earcup material is very easy to wear for long periods of time. I have no suggestions as to how to improve them.

blows everything else out of the water! I have to say,
everyone out there who is thinking of buying this, stop
thinking. I bought it and I am extremely happy with it
the moment I powered this thing on. YOU ABSOLUTELY
