The MDR-V700DJs incorporate high-end materials and advanced engineering to provide a clean, detailed sound for professional applications.
Reversible Swivel Earcups
For DJ and remix applications, these headphones enable single-sided monitoring. DJs can listen to house sound with one ear while they cue up the next track with the other. Also convenient for on-shoulder use.
Auto Swivel Return
This mechanism brings the earcups back to standard listening position, another handy touch from Sony.
Power and Fidelity
The MDR-V700DJs boast 3000 mW power handling, for the most brutal of professional applications. These cans will stand up to day-in, day-out use, at serious output levels.
For maximum energy and minimum size Sony chose Neodymium magnets. These pack more magnetic energy per ounce than conventional Ferrite, Samarium Cobalt, or Aluminum magnets, and help produce ample sound output--107 dB/mW sensitivity.
Last but not least, 50 mm diameter drive units dish out reference-grade sound, superior power handling without the distortion, and way deeper bass, extending all the way down to a ridiculous 5 Hz.
Comfortable, Supra-Aural (On-Ear) Design
The MDR-V700DJs rest lightly on the ear, and the driver is positioned the correct distance from the ear canal, for a controlled environment and better sound. Plug : Gold-plated, straight stereo UniMatch plug with fixed mini plug and detachable phone plug, 3.5MM stereo mini jack; UniMatch adapter.
A wide, molded headband evenly distributes the headphone's weight, for comfortable listening hours on end.
Gold-plated plugs resist corrosion for high conductivity and low noise. Ditto on the oxygen-free copper cord, which also conducts electricity better than conventional copper.
A folding design makes for easy storage and easy portability in a briefcase or equipment bag. As an added bonus, a serrated area on the plug acts as a "hanger," providing a spot to hang the phones when plugged into a rack of equipment.
|Frequency Response:||5 Hz - 30 kHz|
|Cable Length:||10 Feet|
|Power Handling Capacity:||3000 mW|

With minimal precautions, you too can make these last for years and years - just apply some leather protector once in a while, and take care not to drop the things carelessly on the floor. These things are the best headphones I've ever owned, and it was well worth another $100 to purchase a second pair. The first pair served me well, and actually sound great still - they're just not comfortable, due in NO part to the quality of the headphones themselves.
They are solid, and it's nice to have a cord on only one side. It really gets in your way a lot less than the typical headphone design with a cord on each side.
Highly recommend these even for those of you who aren't DJs. These are perfect for drowning out the sound of my coworkers at my desk. I can't hear A THING, and people are always waving their arms at me to get my attention.
These have an amazing level of bass, better than any I have heard in any headphones before. It's an experience, these are.
I'm very impressed with these so far, after several days of fairly extensive use. I used a sweep test tone to evaluate (by ear) frequency response from 15 Hz to 15 kHz (the upper limit of my own middle-aged ears, based on a hearing test a couple of years ago). At the low end, I could feel the air movement even below where I could actually hear sound, and at the high end they seemed to have nearly full volume as they reached the limit of my ears. That's all I could ask.
The dynamic range is quite good; I was able to use these to find a noise floor in what I thought was a clean track, caused by a furnace blower that I hadn't even noticed was running when the track was recorded. (Fortunately, Audacity software has a nice noise-removal filter that cleaned that right up...but with my old headphones and speakers, I couldn't even tell that the problem existed.)
I wasn't sure if these would work on my portable MP3 player because of their impedance, but they work fine with my Creative Labs player. I haven't tried them on one of the tiny thumb-drive-sized players, as I don't own one of those. The headphones also work flawlessly with my Lenovo laptop computer's headphone jack.
They're well-constructed mechanically and have a reasonably large adjustment range, and the folding mechanism works well. I should point out that for many MP3 players and computers you will need a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter. It's not obvious on the Amazon page, but Sony actually includes that with the headphones. You gently unscrew the 1/4" plug off the end of its connector, and there's a 1/8" plug inside.
My only -- very mild -- concerns are these: First, the ear cups are not completely sound-isolating. They do a very good job, but won't block out really loud background noises. On the other hand, they are very comfortable (at least for me...that's a very subjective issue, as everyone's head is different size and shape). The noise isolation is pretty good, just not perfect. I'm still giving them five stars on audio quality, just noting this as an advisory for anyone who will be using their gear in extremely noisy conditions.
The second concern -- again very mild -- is that the connecting cable is a little lighter-duty than the ones you find on high-end pro headphones. It makes them lighter to transport and more comfortable to wear, but I am a little nervous about that cable being pulled loose if they are handled carelessly. I don't plan to do that, but I took away one durability star for this.
Overall, I'm extremely pleased with these headphones, and I have found that my music and the tracks I am editing are rendered with better fidelity than they are on any of my other gear.
They are comfortable, durable, and bass-heavy so that you can cue your tracks in a noisy nightclub.
If you abuse your headphones, or have a fat head, then they will eventually break at the swivel joint, like every brand of headphones will. Stick with the Sonys, and you will have a "parts bin" at the very least. For me, I have never had a pair break, and have only ever worn out the earcups which are replaceable.
I purchased this pair to keep with another DJ rig, so I don't have to keep transferring phones from one to another.
My final point is directed to anyone considering purchasing these headphones for non-DJ use. These are not for you. If you need headphones for mixing audio tracks in a studio, or general listening, look for something with a flatter frequency response.
