Suitable for computer/stereo/personal media player applications - headset provides clear, balanced sound with surprisingly good bass output

Not as reliable as Sony's similar MDR-V150 headset - V250V model is more expensive despite differing only in terms of volume control, with many more errors reported

1 agrees

Poor, plastic-based build quality is highly prone to cracking and breakage - users must be very careful with the headset, especially when travelling or using during exercise

1 agrees

Many comparable entry-level headsets are available at the same price point or lower - unit doesn't function well enough to warrant several purchases at this cost

1 agrees

In-line volume control is very poor - seemingly prone to malfunction that may also lead to left/right-channel intermittence issues

1 agrees

Not recommended for bass-heavy listening - genres like hip-hop, dance and electro may be prone to distortion amongst lower frequencies

1 agrees

Ear cups do not provide extensive comfort - many users will be forced to remove the headset after as little as one hour of continuous use
