What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-CD900ST Studio Monitor Stereo Headphones
  • The headphones are slim and not overbuilt, but the fit and finish is excellent.
  • When listening to an orchestra play, I hear very clearly each instrument and pinpoint the sound well enough that depending on the recording.
  • I love them. They’re comfortable and have a high dynamic range that is remarkably clear.
  • The isolation is excellent and when music was playing sounds from outside was almost impossible to hear.
  • They are comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time and have survived a couple of bouts of total clumsiness that sent them bouncing off a tile floor.
Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil
  • They sound smooth to me across the entire frequency range.
  • He balance and range is amazing, such that the bass is loud but never over-powers the higher range frequencies. Everything sounds so clear! My ears can separate different instruments or voices in the music better than I ever thought was possible.
  • They have a great frequency range and are extremely crisp. The binaural sound sounds extremely realistic.
  • These headphones also have a low impedance (requiring much less power to drive the speakers).
  • The low impedence allows me to use the V6 with my retro portable CD players (one of them only uses 1 AA battery) with good sound volume. No need at all for an amplifier.
