SONY must be crazy. More than worth the price!
on September 29, 2013
OMG! I'm listening to Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B Minor and I can hear down to the flutist's breath intakes, and the click of the instrument's keys! And with Vivaldi's Concerto in D Minor For 2 Oboes?? Digitally remastered cd or not, I can hear the turntable turning! No hisses and pops, but you can tell it came originally from an LP! This is crazy. These headphones are clean! I not too long ago purchased a pair of AKG's Q460s here on Amazon that totally wowed me... until last week, when I found the right side no longer works. Desperate to get my hands on a new pair of headphones immediately, and not wanting to drop so much on the overpriced Beats, I read up on these SONY MDR-ZX300s - along with the MDR-ZX100s - and went out to purchase a pair. After testing it right in the store, I ended up purchasing TWO pairs. Very, very impressive. The price is beyond ridiculous. And the comfort! Not tight on the head at all (even with braids in!) and very soft and cushy on the ears too.
And no, I didn't test them with just Classical music, but Hip-hop, Soca and Dancehall Reggae too. Wow, wow, wow. No muddiness whatsoever even with those thumping bass lines, and no nasty hissing on the highs either. I also love the look of the cool white too, even though the blue ones are just as eye-catching.
These headphones are MORE than worth the price, believe me. I'm surprised they're not like, sold out or something!
