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).
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.
