Sony MDR-7509HD Studio Monitor Professional Headphones Review

The Sony MDR 7509HD studio monitor professional headphones  worked very well for the year that we owned them, and in that time, we played them with many CD players, televisions, iPods, and headphone amps. Found them to be pretty fair audio devices in several respects. The MDR-7509HDs appear similar to the MDR-V500 and 7506, units, also by Sony, tested previously, and reviewed elsewhere in … Continue reading Sony MDR-7509HD Studio Monitor Professional Headphones Review



Unpacking the Sony CD DVD Player DVP-SR210P

A customer recently requested that we install a DVD player onto her HD television, which, unfortunately, has only one open component video input available.  But fortunately however, this Sony DVP-SR210P DVD player offers a component video output, costs very little (under $35 currently), and is simple to unpack and install.  We detail here how we … Continue reading Unpacking the Sony CD DVD Player DVP-SR210P



Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Headphones Review

The Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP Earbuds excel in their punchy midrange, but suffer from weak bass as well as treble response. The 9mm dome drivers here, while acceptable at reproducing the musical highs without seeming to retreat from the task, the lows, due to the pointlessly small size of these buds, do indeed suffer. What you gain in miniaturization, you lose in richness of … Continue reading Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Headphones Review



Sony Make Believe Headphones DR-EX12iP Review

The Sony Make Believe DR-EX12iP Earbuds  shine in their crystal clear high-end, treble clarity, but at the expense of an unmistakable bass presence.  The 9mm drivers here, while pretty good at reproducing the musical highs without appearing to back away from the task, the lows, owing to the very small size of these buds, do … Continue reading Sony Make Believe Headphones DR-EX12iP Review

Sony MDR-V6 Studio Monitor Headphones Review

I listened to the Sony MDR-V6 Studio Monitor Headphones  for several months in 2006, and played them over many evenings with several CD players, iPods, headphone amps, mixing boards, radios, and computer sound cards.  I thought them exceptional audio listening devices in lots of ways.  I’ve owned more Sony headsets than any other brand. They look … Continue reading Sony MDR-V6 Studio Monitor Headphones Review



Sony Network Media Player SMP-N200 Review

The Sony Network Media Player SMP-N200 provides access to the Internet for old-style, not-smart televisions, and down-converts that content into standard definition format.  This media box revs up the older dumb TVs, making them smart, and Internet enabled. We’ve owned this set top player now for roughly three years, and are experiences with it are reflected in this review … Continue reading Sony Network Media Player SMP-N200 Review
