The MDR-V150 Studio Monitor Series headphones are built for your ears, with a supra-aural design for listening comfort during long sessions. The 30mm diameter drivers provide deep bass, and reversible earcups offer convenient single-sided monitoring.
The MDR-V150s incorporate high-end materials and advanced engineering to provide a clean, detailed sound for professional applications.
500 mW Power Handling
These headphones are ready for day-in, day-out use at high output levels.
Supra-Aural (On-Ear) Design
The MDR-V150s rest lightly on the ear, and the driver is positioned the correct distance from the ear canal, for a controlled environment and better sound.
Reversible earcups enable single-sided monitoring flexibility, for DJing applications, checking mono mixes, etc.
Ferrite produces high energy without being bulky, to help produce ample sound output--98 dB/mW sensitivity.
Wide, Molded Headband
This headband design distributes the headphone's weight over a wide area. Less pressure means more comfortable listening.
30 Millimeter Drive Units
These drivers are larger than those found in many headphones, for deeper bass, lower distortion, and a wider dynamic range. Bass response extends down to a low 18 Hz.
Oxygen-Free Copper Cord
For maximum conductivity with minimal noise--conducts electricity better than conventional copper.

The technical specs for iPod earbuds:

The technical specs for MDR-V150s:
Bandwidth response-18Hz to 22000Hz
For those of you who don't understand the numbers, it means that the MDR-V150s have a broader range of sound, but the iPod earbuds pack a bigger sound. This is precisely why you think something is missing.
If you listen to iPod earbuds over a long time, your ears become accustomed to really loud, albeit a small range, sound. This is also why iPod earbuds are known for causing serious harm to your ears over prolonged periods of use. For it to sound right, you have to use the full amount of power, which the earbuds provide. Your close-range hearing becomes damaged over time and you can't hear subtle sounds or details, but you can still detect low volume. The earbuds won't sound deafening because you can still hear outside noise.
The MDR-V150s have a larger range of sound and lower impedance. That means there is a much richer sound. You don't need to jack up the volume to get a good listen (but you do need your hearing intact). You also may not be used to the larger range of sound so the range of sound you're used to will sound drowned out at close range. Many of the comments complaining about this transition from earbuds are noting that staples of their music listening sound strangely undetailed on the MDR-V150s.Read more ›
I hesitated to buy these since so many people on Amazon complained about the feel of these headphones saying they pinched. Well, they are bigger than what I'm used to - a little bulky maybe - but I found them really pretty comfortable. Also, because they fit a little tighter, they seem to block out a lot more noise, which make them great for the gym or walking down a busy street.
I use these headphones every day, and while I'm sure most true audiogeeks would be better suited by a pair of Seinnheisers or another high-end brand, this pair is perfect for me. Heck, I'm on my fourth different CD player since buying them; how's that for longevity? Highly recommended if you're in the market for headphones near the 20 dollar price point.
Every pair that I've purchased have had some problem or another. The ear bud ones are always too big and hurt my ears (and besides, they get pretty gross). The standard walkman-type headphones are comfortable but the music is pretty audible to people nearby when you play it even at a normal level.
Basically, I was searching for a pair of headphones for $35 or less that would hold sound in reasonably well (everyone always advertises noise-cancelling - I wanted noise-containing!), but didn't look like they should be worn by an air traffic controller!
I've been exceedingly pleased with these headphones for the week that I've had them. Yes, they are a bit bulkier than some of the more trendy headphones that are out there but they are much better quality. I can't blast my music but I can listen to it somewhat loudly without being audible to anyone around me. The ears are really soft and comfortable, although I will say that I've encountered the same issue with the headset getting a bit uncomfortably tight after wearing it for several hours - especially when I'm wearing my glasses. I expect that will get better as I wear them in. I haven't had any problems with my hair getting stuck in them, as another reviewer mentioned (my hair is several inches past my shoulders).
If you're looking for the same things that I was, I would strongly recommend these headphones! I would have paid double and still been very happy with them.
