OVERVIEW

Top rated for accurate, detailed music reproduction.

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.

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:

    on my third pair and its always the same problem. The faux leather covering on the ear pads quickly crumbles off after a few months. The cans still function and sound fantastic but look real raggedy. And if you use them with one on an ear and the other on your head the seam splits exposing the white foam padding underneath. Still I love these! Just wish I could get replacement ear covers.

    I have bought 2 pairs of these before & will again.

    Comments about MDR-7506 Headphones:

    These are the best Headphone for field recording that I've found. Nice compact & folds up to store. Good fitting comfortable. With the low impedance there's enough gain to hear above the usual noises outside. The frequency response is very bright, which can help outside, but not useable as editing or mixing.

      I have had these same headphones for 20 years and they still work great. The foam is starting to look a bit funky but still very usable....Def would consider a new pair soon

      Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

      It always amazes me the number of people who gush over these headphones. They have almost no bass end, and a strong spike above 10k hertz. So, you have to turn your equalizer way up on the bass end, and way down on the treble, to get anything close to a flat response. And the bass will still be poor in the lower registers, because of the limitations built into the speaker. If you don't believe me, look on Youtube, there is a review there by SonarLabs or something like that, discussing it's shortcomings. They talk about how it should never be used for mixing, especially if you are mixing bass. Many people talk about how the spike in the treble makes listening through them fatiguing after about 20 minutes. I do like the cord, though many people hate it. They are built solid, but should not be your regular headphone.

      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.

          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.
