"Quite a miss"

The Sony MDR-023 headphones are a lightweight pair of classic, over-the-head style headphones that are designed to be economical. They feature a 4.9 ft cord, adjustable overhead band, open air design for clean sound, 30mm driver (to deliver deep bass), and a standard 1/8" plug. They also have an impedance of 24 ohms, sensitivity of 100 dB, power capacity of 100mW, and a rated frequency response of 14 Hz to 20,000 Hz. They also weight about 2.6 ounces which is relatively light.

The headphones themselves are not too comfortable by today's standards. The earbuds are completely flat, so they don't seem to fit naturally over my human curved ears. There is padding, and the ear portion is large, but it's still uncomfortable. The over headband is adjustable on both sides, so it can accommodate pretty much any sized head. The adjustments lock nicely without any sort of locks, switches, or buttons necessary, so it is efficient here. The top of the headphone portion is wide, so it won't slip off the top of your head.

I find the sound quality to be average and mediocre. Usually with larger headphones, there is a potential capability to produce deeper basses, and better high end. But that is not the case here. The bass is pretty weak, and I definitely have a pair of smaller earbuds that pump out way more bass. Basically, these headphones just sound old, with lots of harsh, radio-like miss.

Overall, if you happen to have one of these pairs of headphones around, they're worth trying out, but don't go out of your way to buy them, even if they are on the cheap. Sony makes a lot of quality products, including headphones, as I have a pair of $200 studio-quality earphones that I love. But their low-end stuff can be quite a miss sometimes.
