Hi there!

I think I will be getting a really cheap Sony MDR V7. I would just like to know what you think of these headphones. Which headphones are in the same class or price range?

ive not been around too long but i think u mean the MDR V700 rite? Havent heard of the V7 before.

Why not head down to head-fi and do a quick search. I think its pretty rare that people here will listen to a Sony besides the cd3k and the V6/7506's

I did search there... Found nothing! I only found on google some hints, that it is the bigger brother or sister wink.gif of the V6 (it's not the V700, it's an older model, I guess).

This is the one I'm talking about. For 14,20 Euro plus shipping I think it is rather inexpensive wink.gif http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...item=3046240268 I will post my findings when I have received them...

i agree

looks like the CD900ST [more expensive clone of V6] with its red sticker

if so it looks like a good buy, since they are actually V6

one of the popular closed headphones

its almost impossible to tell.... but if it is the cd9000st, its the uprated version of the v6 made by sony music, not the parent company itself... interesting history.. hehehe

They finally have arrived smile.gif The writing on the headphones says: Sony MDR V7 wink.gif It looks like the picture evo posted. But "R" and "L" are not blue but golden! But they are actually sounding fine and have a much stronger bass than my Sennheisers. Well, it is a closed one smile.gif For 14 Euro they definately rock party.gif But the pads are quite worn out sad2.gif Any workaround here? I don't like the leather or whatever it is...

It's very simple to remove but a little trickier to put back on. The Beyer DT250 ear pads (velour) should be an exact replacement if the dimensions of the V7 driver enclosure is the same as the V6. Bare in mind although the Beyer mod will make it alot more comfortable it will make the sound slightly 'darker' than original (as happened in the case of the 7506/V6).

Would not recommend the Beyer pads as they make the mids recessed but does provide better bass. It topples the balance of the headphone IMO of course.
