VERDICT

The MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones offer outstanding noise cancellation, high-quality audio output, robust design, and a vast frequency range of response. Factor in the reliability that the SONY brand ensures, and you will soon come to the conclusion that this product is an absolute bargain at its current price.

Sony Corporation (or SONY for short) is a real juggernaut in the electronics market. While it may be more well-known for its TV sets and smartphones, one aspect of its business that tends to get eclipsed is headphones. SONY’s headphones are made from the best materials on the planet and by some of the best engineers in the world, so you can rest assured knowing that you’re getting a great product should it have the name SONY in its title.

Our favorite pair of headphones that SONY has produced in the recent years has to be the MDRV6 with CCAW Voice Coil. Widely regarded as the best SONY headphones available in the market, the MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil are everything as advertised and then some. Even though the 7506’s is SONY’s bestselling headphones, we feel that the V6 is more cost effective. A robust design that produces mesmerizing sound, the MDRV6 Studio Headphones are the SONY headphones that you should pick up if you’re looking for style and quality.

Sony MDRV6 Features

SONY’s best product in years, the MDRV6, offer great value for money. The fact that professional record houses and studios all over the world have been using them for years is a testament to how good they are. The incredible external noise cancellation aids in providing a truly immersive experience. What we love about these headphones is that despite being in the market for ages, they continue to fly off the shelf, which further underlines the quality of the Headphones.

The biggest feature of the MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones is the CCAW voice coil. For those of you who don’t know, a voice coil is a moving coil driver and is used in most headphones these days. It is a far superior way of producing a richer and deeper sound than the conventional method. While voice coils may not be the norm of the industry yet, SONY’s decision to opt for a voice coil in its product shows the electronic titan’s foresight. Thanks to the CCAW voice coil on the MDRV6, the audio produced is much crisper than any other rival product in the same price bracket.

What astounded us when we got our hands on a pair of MDRV6 was how lightweight the product was. Weighing less than 11 ounces, the Sony Headphones are extremely light. However, this does not imply that they will crumble under mechanical stress. What’s great about these headphones is that they are extremely robust without being annoyingly heavy. Thus, users can put these headphones on for extended periods without spraining their neck muscles. The comfort offered by these headphones is truly unmatched and one the reasons why we love this product so much.

The Sony Headphones make sure that you never miss a single beat. The impressive engineering under the product’s proverbial hood allows the headphones to give you a wholly unique listening experience.
