The Sony MDRV-150 can even take being used in the club in a pinch. While not as ideal as its bigger brother, the MDRV-500, these are good for backup use and sketchy places, where you might get stuff stolen. Great for beginners or not-so-demanding situations. Highly recommended.

For the price it does its job quite well. On low volume they give you decent bass, but as the volume is increased, the bass gets very very distorted. Mids are present in their low range, everything thats higher than 2-3KHz has lower gain. The phrase "Highs are clear and crispy" does not reffer to those hoadphones. I need to adjust my equalizer in order for these headphones to play. The quality is pretty good, especially i like the cord: its very thick and flexible. The headphones are not very comfy and are too tight. But its okay. Good headphones for beginners or as a second pair.

I've had these for about a year or so and they are awesome! They have taken all the drops, falls, and use and still work perfectly. Granted they aren't expensive headphones, but for the price you can't beat it.
The sound was absolutely amazing when you play with the headphones on, but I tried taking the cord out of the output hole and the cord split.
Obviously you are not going to get the best quality headphones for 20 bucks but these easily get the job done. The bass response is great. I use them when I track my 808s and kicks. These are cheap, comfortable and they sound better than a few pairs that cost 100 or more. I would never use these for mixing or mastering but for 20 dollars, they make a great addition to any studio!
These headphones sound horrible. I've been using the Sony MDR-V100 for years, and the sound quality was amazing. I love them. So, when I today lost them, I promptly grabbed a new MDR-V150. Wow, what a difference. The MDR-V150 responds considerably more to bass, which just causes everything to sound muffled. It sounds horrible. If GC wasn't closed already, I'd take this back right now.
I work in radio and everyone in the building uses these headphones. Yep we are poor! After going through at least 6 pairs of high end headphones it came down to these bad boys. 20 bucks and it serves the purpose quite well. You get about six months of use out of them before they fall apart but keep in mind the wear and tear they go through. They are also nice because when you get mad after a bad break you can throw them and their not too expensive to replace. The sound quality is pretty dam good as well.
I found a pair of these in 2006 and decided to try them out. I've been very pleased with them. The sound quality isn't the best I've ever heard, but for the money you can't go wrong. These things are built pretty tough. I mean I've dragged them through hell and back and they still mostly work. The only problems I've had out of them occurred about 2 hours ago. The right side speaker just cut out. You can get it to work if you keep messing with it and it takes spells. But if you consider all that they have been through (dropped on the ground multiple times, piles of textbooks thrown on them, tangled too many times to count) then they really held up. Another plus is that they are fairly comfortable when you have them on for extended amounts of time. They also come with the 1/4" adapter, which is a plus.
they're probably the best studio headphones u can get for $20. for me they are a little uncomfortable after wearing them for a few minutes but i can deal with it. the sound is pretty good. Ruben -Acid Paradox is wrong about the bass distorting the sound at high volume, they certainly do not. in fact the bass is not that loud at regular listening volumes and when u turn it up louder it still doesn't distort or anything. overall if ur on a budget like me and u need a solid pair of headphones to use in ur home studio then go with these at $20. if not, u can spend a little more and get something better.
The Sony MDR-V150 have been on my ears for some time now, let's see, 5 or so years. Now, it might not seem like much but considering the fact that I use higher end headphones, these guys not only surpass the use of easy listening but they can actually be reliable enough for video editing/audio productions. If you are on the budget, these guys will not only give you what you want, they will provide you with what you need...quality, reliability and performance.
The sound quality is decent, but when volume is above normal, the bass just blocks all the other sounds, making it sound really distorted,And if you low the volume you can still notice some distortion.
I recently bought one after reading the reviews and I can absolutly say that they are the best for the price. Don't believe people when they say these don't have good bass. The only reasong they are saying that is because they didn't let the magnet in the headphones flex under low volume for a hour or so. I let them flex and after 2 hours turned them up and the bass was max with no distortion. Looking to get 2 more soon.
