Sony MDR-7506
Use for years. First personal headphone "pro".
+ Storage bag provided
+ Folding
- Sustainability
- Auditory fatigue
I recommend other headphones & more efficient solids Beyerdynamic DT style.
With the experience that I did not when I purchased, I do not have that choice ...
But now I'm working on my flux capacitor, I progressing well but it is not yet developed.
More seriously, we often learn more from our mistakes than his victories.

Studio use, sound, exercise instruments ...
Its coatings are nice, at least not as it finally: they stick around the ear. This is due to the material (plastic). Mind you, after a while, they crumble and suddenly the problem with it ......
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 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.

How long have you use it?

Because the group used in radio where I work, because the advice of several colleagues and users (technicians antenna) and because I was looking for a headphone serious, reliable and quality for both work and music composition listening to music, I purchased this headset for almost a year ago.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Different models in store. The most basic model to the Audio-Technica expensive through the Dr. Dre that I found appalling level value for money (and definitely not consistent with the purpose I wanted.


In composition, therefore, mainly. Whether for mounting models in Ableton Live and Protools or recording.
Also used for listening to MP3.


It's not the worst of what I listen to (see my choice for this headphone), but as time passes, the more I tell myself that this is not the best.
The sound is very aggressive, very flattering. He "earache" after long listening.
Although broadly balanced, the midrange is (I think) really forward, where the aggressive side unpleasant.

Squarely hifi/MP3 recommended for listening, it does not enhance the music.

Recording, the recovery (that comes out of his headphone and goes back into the socket) is frankly important!

The material

After two months of use, a jack has been folded in a sheet amplifier, error handling that I recognize (amp pushed against the wall when I forgot the jack plugged back into the headphone jack) but it m has not been pushing very hard for the jack is properly folded!
The left side was broken. I wanted it repaired with my dealer that I Pigalle claimed that the repair would include replacing the cable complete with re-welding in the headphones for a price equivalent to a new headphone ...

... a colleague from work I changed the jack for pennies hardware and now everything works perfectly.

Currently, the foam earpieces are very flat, and will fall squarely déchictent the headset several times a week.
Apart from the incident of the sheet, I take great care of my headphone and let such concerns to be desired!
Many colleagues have their foam completely ordnance (replacing all the same to € 20)

The port on the head is not pleasant architecture, not painful but not really ergonomic and very narrow.

Wearers, beware GALERE! I always feel that the ear does not "stick" not perfectly to my ears.

Otherwise, it seems pretty solid and cord étiro corkscrew is really convenient.

How would you rate the quality / price?
I find the price slightly excessive in relation to product quality.
This is not a "bad" headphone but it seems clear that this is the best.

Its sound quality is improved and reliability is a bit lightweight material.

With experience, you do again this choice?

Hard to say.
I think I would look rather two separate headsets. For monitoring, something more solid, more comfortable and more neutral.
For MP3 I went to the Bose TriPod which is much more comfortable and the sound is more pleasant.

In summary, not a bad headset but for me, he told me unconvinced.

Rapidos little message ...

I bought this headset a while ago (in 1863) (well. .. not 2001 <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> ), I worked for 2 years ...
Mixing / making voice ...
The sound is not neutral but still surprising ... honest to work with dignity ...

However the headphone I drop her like the previous opinion <span class="reviewAuthor">arakno1</span> ( ../../../../membres/,u.416715.html ) ...
I slammed a listener but yet I do not think pushing that much ...
Only guaranteed over ... trash ... A check can be bad end a series ...

Comfort level is not bad, bearable 3 or 4 hours max according to my recollections ...

These are musicians ...

Sony MDR-7506
Hello all!
The 7506 is a good monitoring headphones and it stops l!
I use it for about a year and a half until I found super l. Subsequently I needed the real headphone completely closed envelope to the sound, so I buy the big brother the 7509. You find that there too much bass in 7506 and there are even more in 7509 except that there is not unbearable and infra low fatigue. The acute mdiums and are much more natural with the 7509 report and is softer. We can limit it to a mix. The 7506 provides a showcase for the voices (mostly women) which is great for monitoring! The male voices sound stiff as it lacks some low frequency (60-80Hz). Other experiments ... In the studio, I made sounds made on sound (4:00) and finally take off 7506: the Ralite only "sounds" the same. There is a kind of lack or too much of something ... (Mediums) The experiment was repeated with the 7509 the next day and not fall, I never quit the earth!
In conclusion:
To the extent you want to do the monitoring, the 7506 is a great headphone not to keep the ears too long: 1 hour max (fatigue). His lack of Ralite in the low forbids the taking of the kick drum and bass and a lot of acoustic instruments (strings and piano). Its price is its main advantage for this type of range is not found the same quality. The 7509, it is much more expensive but much better and its use is much wider (simple cost of living, sound system, monitoring, mastering).
