What good is a high end mp3 player of your head phones are no good and you can’t hear your music? Most factory brand head phones that are included with your portable device are low end and don’t project the music adequately so you have to continually turn up the volume just to hear your songs. I personally am not a big fan of the ear bud style head phones, because they hurt my ears when I wear them for a long time, so I decided it was time to upgrade to a better pair of head phones. I ended up getting a pair of Philips SHS3910 portable device headphones which ran around $12. They were better than the ear buds, as they didn’t hurt my ears, but the sound quality wasn’t what I expected. These head phones sit over your ear canal and you can still hear the noises around you. I was pretty disappointed with my purchase so I set off to find a better set of head phones.
Living in a small town you don’t have many options to buy things, but when I checked out our local Wal-Mart I came across a set of Sony MDR-V150 Stereo Headphones. I have used Sony products before and they have always been high quality and have lasted a long time. I also liked the idea of stereo headphones because they cup the ear and leave very little room for external noise to sneak in. The great thing about the Sony MDR-V150 stereo headphones is that they are a small version of stereo headphones so they aren’t big and bulky like traditional ones.
I ended up purchasing the Sony Stereo Headphones for just over $20 (plus tax) and was extremely happy with my purchase. These headphones are like traditional headphones, where they sit over the dome of your head and are adjustable to fit different head sizes. The ear cups are mid size, approx 2.5″ oval to cover the ear, but are not big and bulky. The sound quality was amazing! I didn’t have to turn up the volume near as loud and the music was even clearer than when I used the other headphones. Another great feature is the long cord so you can listen to your stereo, even if it isn’t close to you. The ear cup also is reversible for single-sided monitoring. These headphones also come with a stereo mini plug and a unimatch plug adapter. Sony also offers 90 day limited warranty on this product.
If you are shopping for a new set of headphones then I would recommend this pair. They are good quality for the price I paid. They are compatible with mp3 players, stereos, cd players, and even the iPhone. You can purchase a pair of the Sony MDR-V150 headphones at your local Wal-Mart.
