==Sony MDR V300 Headphones==
Earphones are not always the comfortable thing to wear and more often than not will pop out of my ears and continue to annoy me with the constant fiddling of trying to get them in place and relatively comfortable. With this in mind I thought I would forget all about earphones and get myself some headphones to save all the hassle and fiddling.
==Price and Availability==
because at the time of deciding I wanted some headphones I was in one of those moods where I must have them straight away, I purchased them from the high street and because of that I probably paid a little over the price I could pick them up from the internet for. I paid £30 for these headphones although the RRP is £35.99p so I save a little. The prices online vary somewhat and I have come across a site just now where they are being sold for a good price of £15 which of course is an absolute steal! I got them from HMV as I couldn't think of any other place on the high street to buy such an item but like I said they are widely available online and you won't have to hunt them down.
==Look and Design==
The overall appearance of these headphones is really rather good and they are not too chunky or excessively large on the ear covering area. The wire with which to plug into the MP3 or other music device is a nice long one which means that you could use these to plug into your TV if you so wish and sit on the sofa watching without anyone being disturbed (well at least I can this of course would depend how far away your TV is to your sofa!).
The ear pads are foldable and the whole set of headphones can be folded down into quite a small and compacted design which is ideal for storing or indeed when not using them after taking the out and they are not too bulky in my handbag. The ear pads are attached to the head area by a sort of swing mechanism which allows them to be folded and this is very sturdy and is still going strong with no signs of wear and tear.
The plug adaptor has a couple of different sized plugs with which to chose from and which to use. This is handy for listening to different types of devices as long as you keep the plug that you have screwed off and are not using safe and don't misplace it. These are both gold plated which is said to aid the quality of the sound.
I find using these headphones really very good. The headband feels comfortable and fits easily onto my head and is made of smooth plastic so that none of my hair has yet to get caught in it and snagged. The ear pads are comfortable on my ears and the soft plush plastic type of material they are made of feels snug and not sticky or tacky on my skin. So as far as the overall comfort and use of the headphones go they are really good. Now on to the sound...
After having used earphones for so long and thinking that they were "good enough", I can't believe the far better sound quality that I got from these headphones when compared to my ipod complementary earphones that I had been using. The base that came through these headphones was far deeper and the sound clarity just so much greater. The ear pads seem to keep the sound in the ears and make it a lot more streamline so to speak. I was bowled over by the bassiness of the sound and listening to my base ridden hip hop music the crisp sounds I was getting really impressed me.
I can't rate these headphones highly enough and I can't believe I have been thinking that my old earphones were good because compared to these I have been listening through a metal tin! The price I paid although more expensive than buying online still represent a good value for money and I can't really complain about that. They are comfortable to wear, easy to use and to store and they create a clear, crisp base ridden sound that I really like. I couldn't have asked for more.
I think I would be happy to award these headphones a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and give them a very high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
