Sony MDR ZX300
Advantages: Great Value For Money, Stylish Design, Excellent Build Quality.
Disadvantages: No Volume Control On Wire, Extended Use May Irritate Ears.
I got these (in White) as a Christmas present after a pair of over ear Skull Candy headphones I had broke and started only playing in one ear, but I'll save that for another review.
The overall design and build quality of these headphones is great and typical Sony, i.e. they look and feel slightly better than they actually are, in white they look a little like the infinitely more expensive Dr. Dre Beats headphones. The ear pads are quite soft and comfortable for a while, after about an hour they do start to irritate my ears but that may just be a personal thing, they are still way better than some headphones I've used. They are also very adjustable, I feel I have quite a large head they fit me really well and don't feel stretched at all yet they also go pretty small to, the actual ear pads are on a swivel for maximum comfort and you can turn these sideways for slimline storage. The wire on the headphones is a decent length for everyday use and feels thick and great quality. Finally a very small but excellent detail which you may be able to see in the picture is that there is a small amount of red on the right hand side of the headphones near the ear pad which always reminds which way to put the headphones on and stops me looking like an idiot. It's only a small thing but I love the attention to detail that Sony have put into the design of this product.
My only negative point to make with these headphones is that it might have been good to have a volume adjuster on the wire of the headphones similar to those on the I-pod variety.
Summary: Above Average Sound Quality For The Price And They Look Great As A Pair Of Everyday Headphones
