Sony MDR-V6 headphones review: The Good The Sony MDR-V6 closed-back, full-size headphones sound great and are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Their sound is also very well-balanced and crisp -- they sound great for the money. The Bad With its coiled, pro-style cable and [...]

These Are the Five Best Headphones I'd like to conominate the MDR-7506 along with the MDR-V6. They are practically identical save some minor differences — one is marketed to the consumer market, the other is marketed to the professional market — and corresponding price. So buy [...]
The $20 headphone makeover Brainwavz claims the pads also fit some full-size AKG, Fostex, Hifiman, Phillips and Ultrasone headphones. These ear pads are thicker than stock pads, and the difference in comfort on my Audio Technica ATH MSR7 headphones was dramatic. The stock pads [...]
@KVJayantRao I already got these. t.co/9zk7ZFFqMp
, and MDR-7509HD -- the $109. 99-list MDR-V6 is still available. (Sony's Web site lists it as discontinued, but it still appears to be widely available, and for well under its list price at that. Why are we reviewing it now. Well, we were finally getting around to reviewing its popular sibling, the MDR-7506, so I figured I'd have a listen to the "original" and compare the two of them, as well as some of today's top midrange headphones. Since the MDR-V6 had amassed more than 900 five-star reviews on Amazon over the years, I assumed it would be competent. It was not hard to see why the headphone was still in production after all these years: it just sounds and feels right.
The design of a headphone isn’t just about looks. well, okay, it’s a little about looks, too. They’re more durable than they look, but they probably wouldn’t put up with as much abuse as some other cans (like the M50x). Some people love the way the SR80e looks, some people hate it, but you can certainly step it up a notch if you’re willing... The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x (pictured above) is one of the most well-built headphones I’ve used at this price point. The cups swivel for perfect ear position, the joints are smooth and don’t creak, and you can fold the headphone into a nice portable package for travel (it even comes with a little bag). The cable is detachable, and comes with a short cable, a long cable, and a coiled cable.
Headphone Showdown: Grado SR80e vs Audio-Technica ATH-M50x vs Sony MDR-V6 The adjustable bars click very smoothly between settings for larger heads. The Sony MDR-V6 and MDR-7506 occupy a nice space between the other two headphones. They’re light like the Grados, but feel a bit sturdier. They also fold up for travel ... [...]

It has five 3.5mm jacks, four for different audio channels and one for mic, along with a USB used exclusively...
I recently got a chance to test Sony’s new noise canceling-earbuds, the MDR-NC22. I also asked my brother to give them a try as he’s a frequent flyer and has been using Sony’s first-generation MDR-NC10’s since 1999. They’ve held up pretty well for eight years and 1.2 million miles. So the bar was set high for these newbies. The verdict? Great! But with one serious deal-breaker. Read on to find out what.Fit/FinishThese Sony’s play in the relatively small space of earbud noise cancelling...
