Sony MDR-V700 Headphones Discontinued – R.I.P.

Tech Blog
Monday, 30th December, 2013


It is such a sad time! I have heard that the Sony MDR-V700 headphones have been discontinued! πŸ™ They were the first good pair of headphones I got, and I loved them. They did end up breaking, but after a really good 2 years worth of use, and I loved them so much I replaced them with another pair! :pΒ But now they are no more.

It’s a shame, my current ones are getting a bit old and tired, so I decided to check to see the price of new ones, and what I found was that Sony seems to have stopped making them πŸ™ I do love everything about them, they are pretty heavy in comparison to your standard set of headphones, the coil wire is cool even though I hated that at first, and they were pretty powerful for the price. Had I of known that they were on their way out I would have bought at least one more pair πŸ™

Sony have seemingly replaced them with a model called the MDR-V55. They look pretty nice, but seem to lack the features and power of the good old V700. The spec seems to be less powerful, there is no coiled cable, it’s a sad!

The MDR-V700 has a lot of love and hate from people, they were a little flimsy, my original pair did break as you can see, but they are (or were) such a great pair of headphones for the price.

I will now have to treat this pair extra special and be really careful with them now I know I can’t buy them any more :mrgreen:

    I myself own a Pair of ‘700DJ’s and love ’em even although they look like they’ve been through hell and back. The MDR-V55DJ’s are HORRIBLE.

    – The sound = HORRIBLE.
    – The build quality = HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

    They make a disgusting *creeeeeaaakkkk* when you move them around on your head or move them at all and they make horrible plastic-y sounds.
