Sony MDR-1A Description:

Top Customer Review:
These headphones are some of the most comfortable headphones you'll ever wear and on top of that, the audio quality is incredible. They are a little on the bass heavy side but if you have an equalizer on your phone you can make it work. I bought these because I was looking for a pair of high quality portable headphones to use with my phone at work or on the go. These are exactly what I was looking for and am quite happy. Only complaint is that Sony doesn't include a decent travel case, they only give you a pouch which sucks for how much these cost.
All Customer Reviews

Sony's MDR-1A is the successor to the discontinued MDR-1R , a "premium" over-ear that we liked a lot when we reviewed it a few years ago.

One of the biggest design changes is that the MDR-1A's earcups rotate in an opposite direction from the MDR-1R's. That's a big deal because the headphones can now rest flat (pads down) against your clavicles when you have them sitting on your neck. In other words, they feel a lot more comfortable when you're wearing them around your neck and not listening to them.

That earlier model was known for being extremely comfortable, and the very similar looking 1A, which costs $300 (£170 UK, AU$400), is even more so, thanks to some small design changes. First, its earcup design is subtly different, with softer padding and cushions that are slightly angled to conform to your head better. The finish on the MDR-1A is also a bit more textured (stippled). It's a minor detail, but I did like it slightly better, but others may prefer the smooth finish of the MDR-1R.

Honestly, if you think you don't need these, you do. You absolutely do. If you even respect music in the slightest, these were made for you. The sound quality is just so rich and even, it's a wonder I only paid $200 for these. Sony did a good job, so listen to my words, you WILL regret not purchasing these magnificent beasts.
ADVANTAGES:
sound is amazing
DISADVANTAGES:
nothink to say about

Super comfortable headphones. I usually have a problem with over the ear headphones being too tight, especially since my ears are kind of big and stick out from my head. I wish the pads were a little bigger so that my ears would fit completely inside them, but they do not bother me and there is no pressure. I can wear them all day. I like that it blocks out some noise, but doesn't give me weird headaches like the QuietComforts do. It comes with two cords, I use the shorter one and it's perfect for work and doesn't get in the way at all. The bass IS a bit heavy for my taste, but I'm going to stick with these due to how comfortable they are
ADVANTAGES:
Best Sounding Headset That I have ever owned.
DISADVANTAGES:
i don`t know

Great sounding headphones. The sound is very balanced with the perfect amount of bass. The build quality is very good and the ear cups are very comfortable. I recommend these to anyone considering headphones in this price range. However, I did have to return these because my ears just couldn't take the heat (it became a problem for me about about a hour).
ADVANTAGES:
Excellent performance
DISADVANTAGES:
They are all around average
