    Looking For Sony Headphones. Model MDR-S50. Like the way

    If it isn't a specific retro look you are trying for, surely there are current models that sound as good. Is there something that special about their sound that really sets them apart?

    I would just head to Radio Shack, and pick up a new pair. They have better quality sound and you still get them as big as they were in the 80's.

    I've used these Sony Headphones to do narative recordings for several years, and my voice has a very close to natural sound recording and monitoring simultaniously. I've bought several pairs of new headphones and some of them even make me feel like my sinus's are plugged, and changes the pacing of my speech. I just can't seem to get used to any of the new ones I've bought. If I could even find a new pair that has about the same sound quality of the Old phones Sony MDR-S50 I think I would buy a lifetime supply.
    Probably at least three pairs.

    Ok, I see where you're coming from now.
    Maybe also try asking in an audiophile forum, someone there might be familiar with models that sound similar.
    Aside from that Id just say bring a cd of something you are familiar with, maybe your voice, and test as many phones as you can in stores before buying anything. Shops shouldnt have a problem with this.
