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.

    I had been using a mix of different phones in my studio for years. The best were Stantons. I also had some Nadys, Pioneer and Koss phones. I have a 4 channel stereo headphone amp that I run from the mixer for recording. I was getting such different sounds through all these different phones that I decided to look for 4 pair of the same kind that had decent quality but wouldn't break the bank. After reading such good reviews on the Sonys I bought a pair to try them out. After listening I went back and bought 3 more pair the next day. Now I don't have to do nearly as much adjustment on phone monitor mixes and they sound incredible for the price. I sometimes use them for scratch mixes and settings and they have a much flatter response than any other phones I've owned. Of course, I would never do a final mix on any headphones because they can't compare in accuracy to a good pair of pro reference monitors, but the Sonys are close enough for rough mixing in your home studio at 3 in the morning. The only complaint I have is that the jacks are 1/8" with a 1/4" adaptor when they should be the other way around. Almost all studio gear has 1/4" jacks and these phones are supposed to be more for that type of use than with MP3 and portable CD players or they wouldn't have such a long cord. Other than that minor complaint, these headphones are by far the best deal for the money.

          Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

          I'd been using Sennheiser headphones exclusively since the early eighties, but my last pair of HD 280s left me wanting. They were built of sub-standard plastic, which cracked in all of the wrong places with continued use. I was tired of epoxying the parts back together. I needed more metal parts. I was also disappointed with the super-duper sub-sonic uber low frequency response. I use real instruments and the lowest note I play is E on the bass at 42 Hz. Most people can only hear the harmonics, so why do phones go all the way to 5 or 8 Hz!? The results had me 'feeling' rather than HEARING, therefore mixing light on the bass.

          ...So I got a pair of MDR 7506 Sony phones. WOW. No flubby rubber bass thump, and excellent upper and lower midrange where most headphones lose definition. Compact and light...and with more metal in all of the right places.

          Ahhh..... killer sound, durability and luxury. At the same price!

              I have broken every set of headphones I have ever owned, and was looking for a pair that not only had sound quality but also durability . I hope I wear out the ear cups before they break. they sound great!

              Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

              I've owned three sets; ear pad covers break apart after a few years, but the phones continue to work well after ten years' use. Replacement pads available for purchase would be a great idea. I always heard great sound through these phones. Although the coil cord is heavier and bulkier than phones with straight cords, I think the coil cord has more durable wiring. I like these headphones to listen to clean sound without external noise - good ear cup coverage.

              From the very first use I noticed fantastic separation of each instrument in the mix. These are now my main reference monitors. They seem very comfortable, and while they do not have noise cancelling capabilities, they do block out most of the outside noise.

              Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

              While most reviews on headphones relate to the bottom and ceiling of the frequency very few really deal with clarity and this headphones really separate clearly every sound. You can really hear clearly every instrument.
              Low frequencies are clear, the medium frequencies are strong as they should and the highs are crisp.

              To test this, listen to a studio track from led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones, you'll feel their presence in your room!
              Please use a good quality recording for this.

              The ear cups look fragile, All my Sony Headphones needed a replacement at one point in time or another. Fortunately there are replacements. just don't use velour on this cans, it will kill the low frequencies to a degree.
              The coiled cable adds weight to the set, so i'm going to splice it and replace it with a straight cable.

              I'm so happy with this, i'm going to purchase four more.

              Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

              Compared to the far more expensive RH-300 I just bought, these sony headphones are much better quality. punchy tones, tight bass, clear high end, comfortable. very crisp even at low volumes when mixing and listening for subtle nuances. Ear pads wore out over a year, but can be replaced for under 10. In the vocal booth there is no bleed (when worn properly of course) Not great for a live show setup, because they don't completely isolate outside noise.

                      Comments about Sony MDR-7506 Headphones:

                      all my studio clients love the way there headphone mixes sound even better than the flat mains. cuts right through the mud of a basic tracking session and people enjoy playing more because they love what they are hearing.

                      the negative is that they are cumbersome and people fumble them around trying to unfold them (of course they are musicians what do you expect)

                      they are also guns. lots of gain for the deaf players without distortion!
