The Sony MDR-V55 do just fine on the sound front, with a powerful bass-heavy sound that doesn't trade low-end grunt for clarity. Unfortunately, they're not the most comfy headphones around and our review sample creaks like a crypt door in a horror movie. quote

All in all, if you want some headphones, DJ or not, that sound great and pack up nicely, then the Sony MDR-V55 are definitely worth a look.

It's a shame, these headphones look the part, and at lower volumes sound OK, but listen to anything reasonably loud and you'll be disappointed.

I have used this series of monitor headphones for about 10 years. Great sound, great comfort. this is my 4th pair in that time. Each pair has broken at the pivot joint. I would like to get more than 2/3 years out of them. THe sound& comfort is good enough to keep buying.

Goog little pair of headphones, very stylish. For the price the sound quality is good and i feel that the headphones are comfy. The only issue that brings these down is they tend to creak when you move, which at low level listening can be anoying. Overall a good pair of headphones however at this...
