    With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    If I Had to Do It All Over Again ... Yes .. well I to do it again this choice, it has been my first personal headphone, and he followed me in all my adventures since never let me !! but I do not buy the same place that's all ..;-)

    -For What do you use this headset
    headphone used by musicians for the sound studio, and as a comparative listening mix.

    -What Music do you listen to?
    Listening to mix acoustic folk, jazz, modern jazz, jazz fusion, jazzfunk, rock, variety.

    He -S'adapte easily to your head and your ears? Do you find it tiring during extended wear:
    Comfortable to wear headphones, just unpleasant can on top of the skull after a while, now ... well ... it has more than 10 years ...:-) .. but in the beginning, I do not remember not myself full of comfort ..

    -The headphone you seem strong or weak?
    The headphone is solid, very solid and even the views of the various shocks and other hazardous manipulations live it stinks ... but (-1) for foams that wear out too easily

    -its Appearance or performance have they degraded over time?
    I do not feel that anything was changed at this level, but to be on should buy another one .. and it's not my priority ..:-)

    -The Audio quality of the headphones you she looks good (serious global balance, midrange, treble, stereo)?
    The quality of the headset is great for me ... hair cell I ask a headphone ... one can not too low, mids and highs mediums present ..
    He respects the audio jack of all good ..

    -His Noise you seem too low or too high?
    Sound level is good, more or less

    -What Does its sound insulation (do you hear outside noise from your headphones, and is what people hear the music you listen to)?
    headphone sold as closed, and I think it is closed when the foams are in good condition .. I find foams by fragile against because they deteriorate quickly.
    on the other hand I found it a bit too far into the microphone during a power voice ...

    I use it for 2 years.
    The quality ratio seems correct.
    I remake that choice without problem

    Using these headphones for recording studio.

    The headphone is solid and offers a beautiful, neutral colors do not listen.
    I recommend it for studio applications or even listen to music

    The quality ratio seems correct.

    I bought there 3 months. I tried three other models. I love the storage bag. The price range of this product for its quality.

    I use this headset available. I find it nice and tightly closed. I mainly listen to rock. It fits well in my head. The ability to fold and store in the bag provided is convenient for transportation.

    This headphone seems very robust. I bought there is little promo at Sound Factory in promo.

    http://www.sonofrance.eu/75-sony-mdr7506-pas-cher.html

    I do not know how it will age, but I'm pretty confident.

    The balance of the spectrum is good, as dynamic. It seems properly closed.

    Very comfortable to wear, lightweight, tightly closed, well insulated, less effective than headphones active suppression of ambient noise but much cheaper: bought in December 2013 90 USD or 70 Euro (at Guitar Center on Sunset Boulevard, it ranks as address ...)
    Re experiencing mix (I mix but little headphone), it's not worth a big headphone of course, but it's still very large, well-defined bass are very specific what little powerful for my taste.

    Apparent solidity satisfactory, but we'll see over time. It remains a small, but good construction, at this price.

    Graves a little weak but well defined (curieusement. ..), the rest is pretty well balanced. Very adequate for a dynamic headphones sound level, very satisfactory insulation.

    5 - years
    I can not separate myself ...

    This headphone is a developer of impurities and imbalances.
    I used plug and premix

    Strong yes, but the earbuds will crumble to the ears of those who donned .. not top ...

    Good revealing, prolonged fatigue listening ...

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    A very good versatile headphone. Although for decision, good for mixing.
    The spectrum is wide, there is serious. Treble, meduim are well defined.
    It is lightweight and comfortable to wear. Strength level, nothing to report.
    This is an excellent price / quality ratio. I've seen a lot in many major studios in the capital.
    With the experience I remake this choice without hesitation.
    I also have a 750 ULTRASONE which is even better for the mix but more expensive.

    All music.
    And yes, the atria keep warm.

    Well, it is not so strong. The headset folds on itself for transport or storage (in a pouch provided, that is). But the cables going to the atria tend to get stuck between the so-called atria and arches that surround them.
    Non-detachable connection.
    And yes, his appearance has deteriorated ... Grave! As already mentioned, the atria effitent (it makes me hungry to force write the word "is effitent")

    For sound, not ç'est wrong. A bit tiring & aggressive use compared with Beyerdynamic DT 250, for example.
    Good insulation.

    I use it for several years (4 or 5) now. I passed by several other headphones not very expensive before, but for a (good) hundred Euros, it is just nickel. A very good sound quality, which does not seem to be too tarnished with time, and very comfortable (compared to my old headphone, Behringer HPS5000, but it was anything but comfortable to wear. ..)
    I tried some Sennheiser worth double the price of these headphones, which sounded so good.
    Only downside, mosses eventually crumble, and I will have to change. It leaves black spots around the ears :)

    I use this headset for 4 years.

    This is a headphone precise, compact, fairly well insulated and ergonomic.

    Unfortunately, the "bottom" is under-represented and the general report is garish.

    It is well for monitoring the musician making and suitable for the editing and "stalking", even at low volume.

    Its characteristics make it sound is not suitable for rough mix even troubleshooting or ok for listening pleasure.

    I found it ages poorly, bearings disassociate themselves headset and coating disintegrates gradually.

    As a general principal headset, you can find more versatile, and comfortable mat for a bit more expensive.

    I record acoustic (chorus, strings) and I was looking for a headphone suitable for a mobile configuration.

    The first listening are disappointing. The 7506 was clearly not a linear response with a nice bump around 10kHz. The bass is present and the medium firm but too much behind. Listen to music on this thing is frankly not pleasant.

    But ...

    In taking its position, defects 7506 make it a formidable tool to track the breath. Brightness in the acute is an asset to detect misplacement of microphones, wind, hissing, noise and all are very well highlighted.

    In addition, the headphones are lightweight, comfortable to wear and well insulated, an indispensable feature live.

    Finally, the 7506 is compact when folded, really does not take place. And it supports quite well the abuse. In short, an ideal partner when mobility account.

    Finally, yet with a nice and its not really fair, this headphone is a great tool for the soundman nomad. I care.

    for listening pleasure

    Sony MDR-7506Published on 03/24/12 at 20:18
    The Sony MDR 7506 headphones suited me perfectly when I was using them. I say “when” because I was using them a long time ago. One thing that I liked most about them was of comfortable they where. The really fit around my hears really nice and have a soft feel to them. They sounded pretty good to, not good enough for me to mix in though. But they where great just for listening to music in, or maybe use them as some sort of a reference.

    The sound of them is pretty basic, most headphones exaggerate either the hi or the low end. This where pretty even throughout. They are also pretty loud, so if you like your music loud these will fit you just right, I personally really don’t like my music…

    The sound of them is pretty basic, most headphones exaggerate either the hi or the low end. This where pretty even throughout. They are also pretty loud, so if you like your music loud these will fit you just right, I personally really don’t like my music too loud, don’t want to damage my ears!

    The cord that’s connected to them can really be stretched out , they are almost like the old stereo headphones from back in the 80’s and early 90’s that had the real long bungy type of cord that could stretch across the room. I am pretty sure you need to purchase an adadpter with these though, it doesn’t come with the ¼ inch plug on the end. Most all mp3 players on the market today are ¼ inch females (ins) .

    Overall, nothing really bad to say about these. I wouldn’t mix in them or monitor my own music in them. I used them for listening pleasure only and they served just that. They are great for just everyday listening very comfortable. When I did try to mix in them my mix wasn’t good at all. But the good thing is they are cheap and you can or you could get them almost anywhere. Not too sure if they are still being sold in radio shack and such stores here in the US. But for the right price, buy them.

    I used a lot of conventional headphones can usually be found in the studio: AKG, Sennheiser, Beyer Dynamic, Sony, Shure Audio Technica and other (rare these last two), each with their specific features (taken or monitoring), but if it comes to the monitoring accurately (I did not say the mix, it is said often enough, mix in the headphones is heresy, and even unconsciousness. Unless you want to become deaf before the hour), then the Sony MDR7506 IMHO wins the prize. Its qualities make it an analytical tool that over time becomes essential. It does not flatter, it reproduces what is recorded and that's all we ask him! Said like that, it sounds simple, but ultimately it is not so common as that. Be careful with the volume of use as it is able to send a very strong and listening can be considered "hard", it occasioned a tired relatively limited. In this regard, I could test the (more expensive) big brother in the band, MDR7509, and I would say it is certainly less tiring, less analytical, but also more high-flying HiFi in fact. In direct comparison is obvious, one of you makes it all beautiful (the 7509) while the other points to you the details, the errors (7506), what a tool!
    Defects at the menus I could find him:
    - A concern that I meet with the vast majority of headphones in terms of physical comfort, after a while, a rather unpleasant pressure is felt in the cartilage of my ears causing an inconvenience to some but not prohibitive, and this chapter 7506 is far from being the worst for me.
    - The cable is not removable, although it has never been a problem, it's nice to know that you can easily change it without sending it for repairs.
    In short. For me and the use I make, the price / quality ratio is excellent, especially after having tried the cars, I still have not found its equivalent anywhere else! So yes, I would do this choice, if indeed it is still in the catalog, which seems to be the case. Too bad. It only remains to hope that the new range is of the same ilk.
