I am a Sony addict, this is ever since my Father owned a Sony stereo, which lasted over 25 years. However, I have been disappointed as some of the items Sony has produced over the years as many were cheaply made. These headphones are the exception as they are amazing for the price. You simply cannot find anything of this quality for less than $100. Although there are few, I read some complaints. My advice to those who are not satisfied with these headphones... Open your wallets and fork out $200 plus dollars for an equivalent, or better headphones. You should really focus on reviewing this item based on value vs price. I am glad i did not become trendy and spend $200 plus on Beats headphones - the sound for most of them are still not as good as the Sony.
