        I use these headphones on a daily basis primarily for music and spoken word.They have good clarity and work well with mono as well as stereo recordings.I find the headset to be comfortable and like the different ways they can be adjusted.The only thing that could be improved might be making the length of the cord a little longer.But overall i am very satisfied with the product.

        Very nicely built and comfortable to wear. The sound is very tight, too full on the low end, overly "bass-y". Even if I adjust EQ to make up for their basic sound, they are too big on the low end of midrange and the high end of bass. Too light on midrange overall. Light on high end. I mostly listen to classical music, voice & video but these headphones appear to be built more for rock. They lack the clarity and spaciousness that I was looking for.

                        I use these to supply monitor sound to Script Sups/Directors because of its volume control on board. It is pretty durable, but a little tight around those with larger heads. It is also a bit quieter then other headphones when sent down splitters but that is to be expected on lower cost headphones.

                        The headband is a little tight making them hard to wear for a long time. As far as sound goes, they are very clean for the content I shoot which is mostly corporate video. But I can't speak to their sonic quality for music and such.

                            These seem like fine headphones for occasional use. The sounds is pretty good and the volume switch on the cord is useful. They seem like a good headphone for the price. If you like a richer sound, go for a more spendy speaker.

                              Comments about Sony MDR-V250V - Stereo Headphones:

                              I use the headphones on my laptop at a video chat site so there's no echo. I'm hard of hearing so the sound quality is great.
