Sony MDRV55 DJ Headphones
Hey there Wave crew!

Has anyone tried out or own a pair of Sony MDRV55 DJ headphones? They are reasonable priced and have good reviews. I always liked the overall sound of Sony headphones but I just hope these are more solidly built compared to the old MDR-V700. The 55's have the same swivel arrangement as the 700's so I'm concerned that they will fail in the same place.

Never tried them, but I noticed Kenny Bobien used this when I sat behind him on a flight from Brüssels to Bristol last year for Southport Weekender :-)

My first headphones when I started DJ'ing more seriously were Sony MDR-V500's

Those 55's look exactly like those but more for hipsters with cool red graphikzz and read cable woo.

The 500's sounded f***ing awful but they were better than the 700's for 2 reasons
1. They are lighter
2. They don't snap at the hinges (No auto-swivel)

Would I buy consumer/DJ Sony headphones? Nope

The only one's I'd consider are the pro 7506/V6 or the MDR-CD900ST

Worth noting the 500's were terrible at keeping sound out for a closed back can and couldn't take much volume or have much bass or actually sound any good.

not heard these new updates but pretty much agree with vinyl junkie.

i've just got some of these cheap dj headphones... so far so good.
