Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Only negative: If you need a longer cord then I cannot recommend this product."
_
"These do not do that, the cord is a good thick gummy flat wire that doesnt allow those sounds to travel up."
_
"Cord is a 90 degree angle and doesn't tangle easily due to the flat cord design (it is very sturdy too) Comfort is good however it took me time to get used to them."
_
"This plug takes a lot of tension off the receptacle on my phone, and the cable is robust and doesn't tangle...love them both."
_
"The only minor problem is the cord could have been a little longer, on the other hand if you don't need the extra length it could also be a negative if the cord was too long and always tangling."
_
"The length of the cord is a good general length, not too long too be flopping all around but long enough so you can put your music player in your back pocket without issue."
_
"Great for the $$$, the flat cord is just a perk (easy to keep untangled)."
_
"The flat cable works well."
_
"The flat cord is nice though."
_
"The cord is very durable as well and never gets tangled which is an added benefit."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Based on sound this thing is 5 stars but I took off a star because the ear cushions hurt my ears, I had some other Sony headphones (Broken) that had really comfortable cushions so I just pulled off the one on the old pair and put them on this new pair."
_
"Comfortable, do not tangle easily and have great sound."
_
"If you are worried about comfort, I'd say it's not too big a deal."
_
"Have had them for more than a year now, they are very comfortable and sound really good."
_
"They are comfortable and nice looking."
_
"Much more comfortable and sound more clear than the 300s."
_
"Still, they're ultra comfortable, very light, and great quality sound for the price."
_
"Over the course of about 3 days of use they will be nice and comfortable without being too tight."

Frequency

Frequency:
"maybe missing a little in the very high top frequencies but thats being very fussy."
_
"Pros:-excellent frequency response-very comfortable (gotta break em in first)-good powerful bass but no overpowering-nice build quality-very powerful (they can get very loud)-superb noise cancellation (at moderate volume most all sounds will be unheard)-still somewhat compact and fit nicely around the neck-better than Beats Solo for 1 3 the costCons:-sound leak can get worst over time, but its fine if you don't play your music too loud-can become lose fitting over time (they won't fall off your head in my experience)-can be slightly power hungry at high volume"
_
"All that aside, the rest of the frequencies are excellent and overall the sound quality is very excellent."
_
"The frequency response goes up pretty high, but it rolls off at the very highest frequencies."
_
"The frequency response for me is great."

Listening

Listening:
"These are extremely comfortable, they only hurt my ears after a few hours of straight listening while having my head pressed against a pillow (any headphone will be uncomfortable after that)."
_
"Great listening headphones if you're not looking into buying expensive noise-cancelling ones."
_
"BUT, I do love my music, and also listening to it with a quality pair of headphones."
_
"Make listening to music very enjoyable."
_
"I would recommend that if you do a lot of listening on the desktop, you should invest in a decent soundcard; ASUS makes plenty of good ones with their Xonar series of sound cards."
_
"The sound was extremely crisp and clear on the CD's I was listening to."

Range

Range:

"Literally the best headphones in this price range that I have encountered."
_
", My long search for a great pair of headphones for portable devices was over, the Sony MDR ZX 600s are the best portable device headphones I have ever heard, 40 mm drivers, soft pleather headband and ear pads, made of light but extremely durable plastic, and aluminum, fit and finishes is excellent, the ear cops are finished in black, and a beautiful red trim aluminum earpiece, with a Sony brushed aluminum image, I wore them for hours with no discomfort at all, (however I wear headphones all day long) They are equipped with a flat red chord that is designed to resist tangling, and it works, with a goldplated 3.5 mm L shaped Headphone jack, I spent the afternoon using the Sony MDR ZX 600s headphones on expensive amplifiers, portable devices, even a VTL IT 85 integrated tube amp, to say I was impressed is an understatement, even on my iPhone or portable unit these headphones are extremely efficient, even though Sony rates them at 40 ohms which is a very efficient number, I would put them more at 24 ohms with my own experience with these headphones, the sony's go deep and low, they sound beautiful at low volumes, but they'll play at extremely high volumes with great accuracy, the top-end is beautiful sweet and articulate the mid range is clean and void of any smear from the extremely low bass output, these are an on the ear sealed design, so outside noises are greatly reduced."
_
"If you're looking for a beautiful pair of headphones with extraordinary bass slam a beautiful mid range, and uncolored top end, your search is over, Sony MDR ZX 600s."
_
"The new stuff such as Beat and Sol Republic well if you are wanting the BOOM BOOM sound then enjoy and the price is just a joke.....Sony MDR-ZX600 are a good sounds, I am not going to say great as I have just got them and it will take time to break them in, but at present they are sweet sounding with a good full range."
