What is it?
Basically it is a relatively cheap pair of headphones made by a well-known brand.

The good:
-          Sounds good
-          Relatively inexpensive being made by Sony
-          Solidly built

The Bad:
-          The Y-cords should become a thing of the past
-          This day and age a built in mic is a must
-          Bass is underwhelming specially for studio monitors      

The ugly:
My $8 Emerson studio headphones sound better in my opinion.

My Thoughts:
Overall I like these headphones they are good for regular use. The highs and Mids are fine but bass is a little underwhelming if you ask me. 

Build Quality: 3
Audio: 3
Price: 3
Average rating (via Amazon): 3.5
