Recently went looking for a pair of headphones after my Koss gave out after 10 years of vigorous use. Went to see a friend of mine who runs a record label ( not consciously trying to advertise, just showing that he exists ) Busy Bee Records, and he introduced me to these Sonys. I thought they were superb. He told me he paid £60 from an online Sony dealer but when I came home, I found them for, wait for it, £25.20 from, apparently, the Sony OEM factory in China. I thought it was a con!!. It wasn't. They arrived 10 days after order in the Sony box, with the zip case to put them in but I still wasn't convinced until I plugged them in.
Fearing the worst from my purchase, I spun some electronica dance music through them. If I told you what I said out loud after the first few beats, it would be edited by Mr. Everard. These cans are superb with little leakage. Claimed frequency response is 5Hz to 50kHz. And I reckon that is about right.
Has anybody else encountered these cans and, if they have, what are their impressions of them??.
