The Sony MDR-V55 headphones actually feature a pretty amazing low end. Certainly comparable to beats by dre at a fraction of the price. Upon first listening to these headphones I noticed that they were a bit more snug then the V6 or other Sony headphones I have tried, but over time I got used to the fit. When it comes to DJ headphones often brands get it all wrong. They think that the more bass, the better. Well as we all know that’s not really the case. You need a low end that is rich, not just “there”. Its not the SAT’s you don’t get credit just for showing up! With Beats by Dre, the low end is SUPER powerful, but with that comes a bit of mud, and a sort of “slow” bass response. The Sony MDR-V55 on the other hand deliver a punchy, and tight bass. This is what gives them their bright, and crisp sound. One of the other great things about the EQ on these headphones is that the bass doesn’t leak into the mids at all, so everything is where it should be within the EQ spectrum.
As for the functionality of these headphones, they do fold and feature the new style of flat, tangle-free cable. However many people are saying they wish these headphones had a in-line control feature. Personally, I think in-line controls are over rated and not really needed for professional headphones.
