Goes Wherever You Go

You're always out and about and your music goes with you. But just because you're outside, does than mean you have to put up with inferior sound quality? No way. These high quality overhead phones are made for clearer tones, deeper bass and better noise isolation with a choice of 30mm or 50mm drivers. Impressive sound wherever life takes you.

Comfort is important. You may want to wear them for hours on end, so anything less than a perfect fit simply won't do. You also want to look good but no worries there, as these headphones are all about style with slim, sleek designs that you'll be proud to wear while waiting for a bus, catching some rays in the park or out shopping.

MDR-ZX700

You love a bit of the retro look as long as it goes hand in hand with powerful sound. Look at those original square earcups. Inside, a massive 50mm driver that pumps out loud, clear sound, cushioned for a comfortable fit of course.

Wood-like detailing, coloured metal accents, you can see elements of the past here but blended beautifully with contemporary style. Technology is bang up to date with noise-isolating ear pads, neodymium magnet and oxygen-free copper.

We're talking studio quality headphone here. Whether you're mastering latest tracks at the mixing desk, listening to favourite songs while on the go or just getting comfortable at home, these headphones will keep you inspired with brilliant sound quality and comfort.

The rest of the range

MDR-Z1000

Making music is your passion. Nothing but the very best will do. So how does a 50mm liquid crystal driver and vibration free bass sound? You'll need to be comfortable while mixing so we give you the softest earpads and a detachable cord.

Slip them over your head and start working on that next track. Every note crystal clear, every beat perfectly defined. These luxurious over head isolation headphones are made from the very finest materials. You'll hear no vibrations or ambient noise, just dynamic and balanced sound from a super slim diaphragm made from liquid crystal polymer film and wires of the highest purity oxygen-free copper.

Ready for hours in the studio? Your headphones are. So comfortable, you'll probably forget you've got them on. Seriously light in magnesium, they sport pressure-relieving cushioned earpads that won't let in any outside noise so all you can hear is your music. A long 3 metre single-side cord makes it easy to move around your mixing deck. Which means you're free to engage your imagination and create.

MDR-ZX600

You love music, you love style. It's impossible to choose one over the other. But then, do you have to? Not with these headphones as they're designed to make as big a design statement as they are an impressive big bass performance.

Light and compact, easy to carry around, just how you like it. Swivel earcups fold flat, making them really easy to slip in and out of your bag or wear around your neck. Stylish? Absolutely. Let's say classic looks with a refreshing twist of brushed metal and interesting flashes of colour on the ear pads – either black, white, red or blue. Your fellow travellers on the commute will be green with envy when you step on the 7.57 to town. Luckily, you won't annoy them too much as these headphones have excellent sound isolation. Their chit-chat won't get it in and your tunes won't get out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good while they lasted 20 May 2013

I have to say these headphones were great, I'm no audiophile, but even I could notice the difference between these and the rubbish I was using before.

However, completely out of the blue the right ear cup has stopped working. I have contacted Sony and they say that they only offer 90 days warranty and after that the headphones are not repairable. I basically have to throw them away!
Not happy about this at all, so will think twice before purchasing Sony again.

4 stars for the headphones and 1 for the Sony service.

The Sony MDR-ZX700 are a relatively low cost headphone, I paid about £60 for mine and I am very happy for the price.

They are a small sized headphone overall so are good for portable use but still have large enough cups to be be an over-ear design. The construction is almost all plastic but it is of good quality, the size adjustment hinges are smooth so they do not always stay in place. This couple with the fact that it is a very light headphonem and that there is very little clamping force on the head, mean that they isolate reasonably well and do not leak as much as some headphones, but will never be perfect, for me the sacrifice is worth the comfort with the very soft faux leather pads and headband.

The short cable and low impedance, make them ideal for use with a portable device such as a MP3 player or smartphone but they are also good for home use as well (how I used them). A detachable cable but be an improvement but is not common at this price, also they do not fold or come with a case so for portable use this must be considered.

The ZX700 have a very neutral sound across the frequency range so will be suitable for almost all types of music, though electronic and hip-hop fans may feel they are a little bass light. With the flat response however these are open to using an equalizer if one is available on your portable device and software at home. The clarity is very good, instruments can be picked out quite well and subtle details do not get lost in the rest of the music which is very hard to find with headphones of this price so this surprised me.

Unlike many other headphones brands the price on these is similar to US pricing so these can seem much better price when comparing the competition's products at the same level. Overall this headphone exceeded my expectations and I would say they are a great value for money and i would highly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your in the big time now boyz 'n girls. 14 Jan 2012
Has sliced bread just got bettered? Genuine Hi Fi 'phones for 65 smackers!.

Firstly, they are studio monitor 'phones, so you don't have the sound obfuscating added confection of all my other 'phones. This means you hear the music as close as possible to how it was recorded, which is initially weird until your ears can adjust;about an hour. This is done by having a large 50m driver and a frequency response of 5 - 40,000Hz. All it's competitors can do is max out at 29,000Hz, with a 40mm driver. In real terms you get amazing penetration and revealment, a pure and clean sound through all the low middle and highs, with no woolly bass or harsh discordant highs- you'll go deaf long before this- and an out of this world performance from the most modest portables. My Pure Evoke-3 DAB radio has a max output of 8 watts yet with opera recorded onto a humble sd card, you are almost in the concert hall.

At the other end of the scale, it can't magic -fy 1920's mono jazz except with some slight sound body volume, and with 1950's opera you can hear the hiss of the mastertape in the background..well in the background mind.

The ideal demographic for this 'phone would be those who's taste has grown beyond bass dominant urban, albeit it does a fine job with rap r'n'b etc. With the remastered 'Lady in Satin' by Billie Holiday, I'm standing next to her by the mike as she is singing; headphones can get no finer praise, unless you buy it's daddy, the Z1000, which has a frequency range of 5-80,000Hz...strewth!. Most of the 'phone experts on youtube say this is the best in it's price range( the mdr-zx700) as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars wow, sound quality is really good! mdr zx700 6 Dec 2012

Bad points first:
No bass- i have read reviews about these headphones, and they say the bass is average. But the bass is really low. but i suppose it is meant to be 'studio headphones'.
It strangles your neck when u put it on your neck. the headphones are not 'twisty'.
Packaging- it comes in the Asian packaging which is just a piece of cardboard and some plastic. i pay £50 and it looks very cheap.
also no case or anything. very basic stuff in the box. only a additional cable and guarantee thingy.

Good points-
the ear pads feel so good on your ears, soft but not as soft as the mdr xb300 ones i also own. it covers your whole ear. the headband is soft too!
i wear glasses and it doesn't feel too tight on my head
clarity of the songs. bass is low but you can hear every note clearly.
noise isolation works well too
feels very premium

overall, its really good, but the bass should be a bit deeper.and they should of made the earphone bit twisty, so it doesnt strangle your neck when u r not using.
overall rating would be 7.5/10.
i would say its worth more along the lines of £35-£45. :)
