First, a direct product link for the MDR-V150:

Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones with Reversible Earcups

Now, why should you get the MDR-V150 over these (MDR-V250V)? Simple, the in line volume control will break over time and you will randomly lose sound to the left/right headphones (jiggling the volume control makes it come back, but it will inexplicably jostle itself loose again). These headphones are identical to the MDR-V150 in every way (power handling, frequency response, and so forth) except for two:

1) The MDR-V250V has a volume control (as I've explained, this is actually bad)
2) The MDR-V250V has gold plated connections. I love audio quality as much as the next person, but personally I think the potential issues you'll have with the in line volume control far outweighs any potential benefits from the gold plated connections. In fact, I sincerely doubt the connection within the volume control is going to help your audio quality any, so that's yet another reason to avoid these headphones

Make no mistake, I bought and owned these for a year, but the volume control has been a persistent problem in that entire time. I'm actually here shopping for the MDR-V150 headphones, and as soon as I'm done writing this that's where I'll be headed.

Please save yourself the grief and frustration and avoid these: either get the cheaper MDR-V150 headphones or shop for some slightly more expensive headphones (I'm sure higher end Sony headphones probably don't have this gimmicky in line volume control, but double check before rolling the dice).

If you're looking for some headphones for your computer/personal CD player/stereo than these are for you. I got my pair a few weeks ago and i'm really happy with them. I use them on my computer mostly for MP3s and games. They have leather (I think they're leather) earcups that are very comfortable. These headphones have very good sound, especially for their price. The only bad part of these is if the music you listen to has alot of bass it can get distorted a bit. I have only noticed this on my computer, it could be my sound card, not on my stereo or my personal cd player. The cord is a good length for most applications, it's about 6' long and is perfect for computers and ok for personal cd players. The volume control on the cord is odd but useful for when you're listening to someone else talk to you with music playing in the headphones. Oh yeah, the earcups are only 3" (approximately) diameter which is good because if you had the big 6" ones on in public you look ike a real idiot. I think these are a great buy for anyone who loves music.

For four years I was a paper carrier. I delivered my newspapers in the morning, between 4:00 and 5:30 AM, back when I was in high school. I always had a portable CD player with me, and used these headphones to listen to music while I delivered. In those four years, I had gone through FOUR pairs of these. I loved their sound, and they were fairly comfortable, but after an hour and a half of wearing them, they did hurt my ears. I still use a pair (the last pair I bought). Be warned, both the 1/8 inch connector and the volume control are easily damaged, making either the left or right earphone, or sometimes both, stop working. I tried to repair them, but found very cheap wiring when I went to splice a new connector onto them, which may explain why they failed so easily. This last pair has held up fairly well, but even now, the connector is failing. Be warned, they're fragile and can be uncomfortable.

You will not find better monitors for the price. The ranges are beautiful and crisp. The only options for someone on a budget. You actually have all of low ranges. And they sound good! You will not be unsatisfied. I have bought 4 and always suggest these to anyone looking for good headphones. I love when people brag about their earbuds... I put these on them and its all over..... Buy them, I do...Over, and over... Easy cheap awesome gift.

I do not understand the negative reviews. I have had these headphones for years. I wear them at work for hours at a time and can say from experience that they are comfortable. I really appreciate the volume control on the cord. Unlike another reviewer, I have had no problems with it. I normally use these with either my computer or my iPod classic, listening to music, podcasts and audio books. They sound pretty good for the money. They have also held up well. Of course, they don't sound as good as my more expensive Sennheiser phones that I have at home. They are just beginning to wear out, so I may be getting another pair just like them as a replacement. There might possibly be better sounding phones for the same price, but I can say that these are comfortable and have lasted a long time and sound good enough for most purposes. I don't think that you could do much better for the price.

Update:
I have had them for about 5 years and they finally broke. I am going to replace them with the same model. I use these at work and the in-line volume control is important to me in my work situation. I can say from 5 years of experience that they are durable, comfortable and the volume control held up well for me. The sound quality is adequate. If you don't care about the volume control feature, as most people probably won't, you might want to spend a bit more on better sounding ones. For $20, I don't think that you could do very much better. If you are after top sound quality, you probably aren't looking at these anyway, but I recommend the Sennheiser HD555. That is what I use at home.
