How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

TrustedReviews says:

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.
