Customer Reviews:

  • Sound quality is disappointing.
    The Sony Outlet store had this on special for $12. What a steal I thought. The headset feels comfortable but the sound quality is not very impressive. For a headset this size, you'd expect to hear some sort of BASS. I'm taking it back to the store.

    I would have probably have kept this at the price, but given that they do not hold the sound well (too loud to use in the office cube), I won't find any use for it. I wasn't planning to write a review, but I read user review comparing the sound quality of this model to his $90 headset. ...more info

  • MDR-XD100, poor sound, great construction.
    With good construction this is a good buy. It's very light, but it's solid. The chord is heavy duty and extra long. The sound is sub-standard, but it can handle extreme volume. Most point to it's lack of bass, but bass is not all that the sound quality lacks. They're not good for portability, or use with portable media devices because of their long chord and a high draw of electrical current. The headphones sound their best (which is still bad) when you use them with a proper equalizer and amp (or a computer with a high-quality sound controller/card). But buying these because you have a high end sound card or expensive audio equipment is like buying a tailor with no wheels because you own a powerful truck that won't have a problem pulling it.

    You get what you pay for. Whereas most headphones invest most into the speakers and let the actual construction suffer, Sony did the exact opposite with this product....more info
  • You get what you pay for
    Inexpensive. Functional. Comfortable? I don't think I agree on that one, however I say that compared some expensive high end phones I own which are very comfortable.

    I purchased these to use with my HD video camera, so I could monitor the microphone while filming. For this purpose they work fine. Unlike some other Sony heaphones they do not fold up compactly. They are however much lighter than the other sony headphones I own. The cord is of that "too long" length (not long enough for home stereo use, but too long for portable listening)....more info

  • AWESOME!
    Great headphones! I hate the buds so I wanted these... They're extremely comfortable (even on my fat head)... They even have bass!

    Oh and they're so comfortable sometimes I even forget I'm wearing them......more info
  • Awsome!
    Sony's ''MDR-X100 Stereo Headphones'' is the inexpensive-sufficient satisfaction that anyone who loves listening to their music an inch from their ears for a hearing quality thats allows them to specifically make out the name brand of the insrument playing or for people who likes watching movies and instead likes having the speakers on their ears for a higher quality of exploding speacial effects. The ''MDR-X100 Stereo Headphones'' also efficient for comfort in any use. It is complete with an over 5 feet long cord for distance, large phones that cover the ears completely, which is great for shutting out noise, and the phones are adjustable for length and width comfort on the head. ...more info
  • Surprised by the quality
    Amazed by the quality for the price. These are the closest in sound to my AKG K141's under 90.00. I especially like the long cord and the lightness of the phones. I will probably be buying more if they hold up well....more info
  • Broke and Can't Afford Headphones?
    Hey maybe you don't have a lot of money, but don't throw it away on these headphones. They are poor sound quality and generally I love Sony products. For about ten dollars more you can get the Sony 200's which I DO recommend. But if you are really strapped for cash I would recommend getting the mini Panasonic with bass ports or some other smaller headphone meant for portable CD players, MP3's, or iPod's and use those. Mini headphones are the way to go with an adapter at this price range IMHO....more info
  • UNCOMFORTABLE
    I use this headphones to listen to my TV and Home Theater (Marantz), their sound its ok, tipical headphones you use to avoid bothering others, not a great deal, and they get my ears HOT, after 2 hour use they hurt, and no...I dont have huge ear, you can get better for a few bucks more (whith a few a really mean few, som 5 or 10 bucks more and you are done)...more info
