Sony MDR-7506
Almost 10 years of good and loyal service in my studio, and always in good shape except the atria that are beginning to acknowledge the blow, but hey, like any good professional studio headphones that respect, I am possibility of change. Otherwise the build quality one would expect from such a product is by appointment. It is foldable, comes with a soft case and an adapter mini-jack/jack 6.35.
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.

mmafrance's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ideal Home Studio"

Sony MDR-7506
How long have you use it?

I use this monitoring headphones for two years, only in home studio, connected to my Fireface 400. I work in Logic or Reason 9, no monitor speakers while the headphones. For production work / sound is really great. For mixing on the other hand, I think it is necessary to work with speakers in front, for reasons of distance and balance.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

No, I followed my instinct and reputation of the said equipment.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The +: Its neutrality and sound quality
The -: No - located in two years, no degradation of the material.

How would you rate the quality / price?

Very good.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Absolutely yes.

pilip's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good back musician (complimentary)"

Sony MDR-7506
I just want to write these few lines to offset the previous opinion because I do not at all the same review like what.

this is what is noted on the previous opinion:

"The sound is very aggressive, very flattering. It" 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! "

In contrast to this opinion, I find the sound on the other hand very flattering and very dug in the medium! I would recommend for returns musicians who need a pleasant sound to articulate, or just listen hifi! on the other hand I do not recommend it at all in the mix (there is a recurring reference beyer and seems more suited to mixing)

This is a closed headphone, the repisse is very low! it's amazing how I do not agree with this opinion noted above, or you did not use the same material, or I'm Paco Rabanne!

This is just to give my opinion that is opposite to the previous, like what you always compare review (And yes p'tits Trux two negatives: the cord is too short and the atria, which wear out quickly, but the comfort is truly top of head)

edit: I just read the previous opinions, it's incredible, there are indeed two schools: the abused, and flattered!

1 year
<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- What is the particular feature you like best and least?</span>
mdium prcis and acute, clear, Defines. Pan clearly audible and good depth of sound. We hear many investments in front / rear and left / right
The restitution is broad spectrum
As against a big LESS:
ON the sub bass is too low sized and round. In passing on JBL LSR4326 I confirm what I heard on the speakers dj Ghost crap I show all my sub bass speakers that disappear on my kick and become dry and small.
Several solutions:
adapt and prvoir in the composition to the headphone
go back and make between headphones and speakers
to kick my sub and the speakers only
changing headphone
complter with other headsets.
It serves as the head too. Those glasses must suffer APRS 2 or 3 hours.
<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?</span>
I was not offered it.

My girlfriend has more than 200 pay in a store and fortunately it's a gift because I will never make this gift to the vendors who sold him the award.
When you see the price of OCCAZ ...
<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...</span>
No but despite a trs gift. What is unfortunate is that for the price if I could have known that I would go get me a headphone for a given track or AKG K240 271 (most comfortable), a MDR7509 (more fid on) or a DT 990 (my future in complment MDR7506)

Document02's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sony MDR-7506
I use this headset for plusiqurs Annes, APRS have tried many headphones ...
Initially, the treble is clear, low to normal levels without damaging the rest of the upcoming spectrum.
Comfortable for hours of use, it insulates well enough to the outside.
Its largest default to my taste is a lightweight performance on lack of dynamic sounds trs applications (I use test of Autechre Second Bad Vibel to try dynamic)

As against this evil old headphone. With age, he spent a headphone has a neutral and enjoyable mdiums screaming in acute and becomes unusable for work. Although initially I did not understand people giving me this headphone screaming, now I have the explanation: they test with a little MODELS VCU.

Sony MDR-7506
I have tried this headphone that many of my friends possdent. I myself have an AKG K240m.

I found it beautiful trs, trs comfortable (although it wraps right around the ears but not too much as my AKG), with excellent sound trs Dfine well, but unfortunately the built-in mdium seemed EXAGRES but it just sounds unnatural. Stereo image of the rest seemed narrower than on my K240.

It is way be closed but no sound comes out of headphones (not repisse), it does not isolate or not the wearer of ambient noise.

That said, I can not guarantee that you will hear the same thing I have not heard enough to make me notice DEFINITIONS.

rockrooner's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sony MDR-7506
It's a headset that I use for two or three years.
I was at beginners recordings of voices and guitars, as well as the mix ... what a mistake!
For recording it well trs, tench enough to not hear the music in the background, at least to push the volume much like a patient sr ...
But for mixing, you have to forget (except for rglage pan) is not sufficient for a Fidler! some are a little too frquences EXAGRES.
This is a purchase that I would do today I think not, I would buy a more upscale MODEL m'viterait that having too much use monitoring speakers (question neighborhood!). That said in his range level I think it is excellent in terms of the competition!

Negraval's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sony MDR-7506
Uses in a year.
Price / quality ratio: correct
Although this is a closed headphone, it does not tire too eardrums within reason on the level.
Be made good in the high frequencies.
Two criticisms: too low and raised in the cord corkscrew not great.

I just bought this headphone from QLQ months.
I also possde a Sennheiser HD 600 and I had a second headphone for working as a duo. Trs good quality price ratio (111).
Trs comfortable and lightweight it allows for a MUCH Fidler and quite firm.
Do not too tired for a long time.
A little more than accents in mdiums Db and over the Sennheiser HD-600 but this is very good.
One small dark spot is at the level of the cord, it is quite Gnant (type softphone) t prfrable he would have a single cable.
Also convenient connection of a single cable ct headphone which allows prs can hang it everywhere.
A headphone advisor home studio, making his voice, group and possibly mastering.
good fun
