Sony MDR-V6 Headphone

The Sony MDR-V6 represent the full evolution of Sony headphone engineering and design at that magic '$100' (give or take) price point. Freshly updated styling and superb audio performance make this long-running model a top closed-back candidate for any listening use from street-rockin' portable players to serious studio monitoring to tracking session vocals or recording instruments with GarageBand or ProTools. Sony has designed the V6 to be especially well-synergized with digital audio sources (i.e., laptop computers or digital mixing consoles) that can sometimes tend to be a bit bright-sounding; the V6's smoothly extended tone and cleanly punchy bass response will nicely make up for that shortcoming without coloring or darkening the overall sound. 63 Ohm impedance favors use with portable headphone amp for maximized musical punch, clarity and detail definition. Large 40mm dynamic drivers ensure you'll hear all the precise tones and extended dynamics present in your music with full impact intact.

The Sony MDR-V6 are a closed earcup circumaural construction and have an appealingly light leather-type headband that is quite nicely styled and also easy to adjust. The mid-sized slim-profile V6 earcups have the distinctive Sony horizontal red stripe flash and they will nicely collapse and fold up into the headband for travel/transit compactness. The Sony MDR-V6 coiled cord avoids straight-cord tangling issues when listening on the move, extends out to about 9ft, and comes terminated to a 3.5mm (1/8") mini-plug jack; a full-size 1/4" stereo plug adapter is conveniently included by Sony. The upscale purple silk-lined MDR-V6 packaging box also includes a soft Sony bag for headphone storage or transit.
