Damage vs. Ancient History

Or, Damage finds and reviews a Sony MDR-E484.The Walkman in Contrast with Ancient History
That’s right. Damage has found a working specimen of MDR-E484. A quick Google search tells you that these date back to at least 2004 and earlier. Good luck actually finding one though, they’ve been discontinued.

Hell, a recent eBay auction of a used pair shows that these sold for $300. You know what you can get for that kind of money? A 3/4th of an iPad. That’s what. And are they worth that kind of Money?

If you can blow it, sure. It’s a curious and interesting find. I think they sound no worse than MDR-E888, probably a bit smoother and more balanced E888 if I had to give my first impression on these. But they do bear one point, that some of these older gears are much better than newer stuff on the market.
