OVERVIEW

The professional-quality Sony Pro MDR-7506 Headphones let you hear it all. Premium 40mm drivers reproduce every musical nuance. Closed-ear design gives a tight bass response, practically eliminates external noise, and snuggles over the ears for hours of comfort. Frequency response is a flat 10Hz to 20kHz so you accurately hear what's on tape. Gold-plated connectors prevent rust and corrosion, and a UniMatch plug is provided for both 1/4" and 1/8" jacks. Phones fold for easy storage. We recommend the MDR-7506 for applications where hearing accuracy is crucial. Includes soft case.

Top rated for accurate, detailed music reproduction.

I've been mixing and mastering with the 7506's since 1994. They are a solid performer with consistent results.

I've also tried(own) Sennheiser HD280 and Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. Both are great, but do not work for me as well on the job.

I should note I still mix on Yamaha NS-10's for some perspective. The 7506's are the most NS-10 friendly IMO. If you do not like mixing on NS-10's than you may prefer DT770's or HD280's for their low end boost.

For the money they are great and will work in all studio applications.

The Sony MDR-7506 are good headphones. I won't bother with all the subjective sound quality stuff. I just want to provide you the dimensions of the actual opening into which your ear must fit; it is 2.25" h x 1.5" w x .5 inches d. I'm not saying that's too small, but it's too small for me. Doesn't matter how good the product sounds it you can't wear it more than thirty minutes without your ears aching.

Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

Very good for the price and quality. They sound great, and are comfortable. They are not the most expensive, but they sound great. The cord is long enough to move around or reach for something without pulling them off. I plugged them into my laptop just to try them out, they were very impressive. I will also be using these to practice "quietly." I'm learning how to play electric guitar. Enough said.

      Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

      Nicely presented Sony product that performs very well for me. I have experienced hearing loss over the years and these headphones work very well although I sometimes wish for a little more volume. Not too much bass, which I like. Folks seem to me to be too much in awe of bass, which, when too strong prevents one from hearing other aspects of the music. I would definitely recommend these to friends of mine and look forward to using them quite a bit myself.

        Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

        Sound is really full and vibrant. Comfortable on ears for extended periods of time. Not sure how durable they will be given fact that there are multiple moving parts, but I haven't had any issues. The cord is too long for my use and once the coils stretch a little, it is even worse. They should have an option of a shorter cord.

          Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

          Sound is very good IMHO. My main use food them is for tracking and just general listening back to tracks and mixes, and for programming drums on my laptop. I have used them for mixing and when I listen the next day on my studio monitors the mixes have been pretty close, so I think they do have a good, flat and wide freq response. Not too boomy or bassy, but a nice natural bass and smooth, clear highs.

          Cons: (these are not huge, but just to be honest here)
          They are too small to be "over ear" monitors, and they get uncomfortable after an hour or less for me.
          There's something about the way they fold up I don't like. The metal sides slap together and it feels fragile or something. I would actually prefer they didn't fold up.
          For some reason the chord gets in the way more so than other headphones I have used, possibly because it is light and coily? I have some over ear phones that have a heavier coiled chord that sort of falls away from you where these seem to be more springy. Minor stuff. Overall great little headphones. They would be good if you like something like "Beats". I think these would be a much better value.

                I use these sonys when drumming, electric set. This is my 4th set of sonys Mdu 7506s. I keep having a side blow up. But there is no better phones for the money. I purchased the warranty this time and plan on watching how much kick I put through these phones.
