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.
