Sony MDR-7506
Sony’s MDR-7506 are a set of professional level recording studio headphones. Sony has a ton of different headphones to choose from on all levels, and the MDR series of headphones are probably their most popular. The MDR-7506’s in particular are a great set of headphones. They’ve got large diaphragm speakers and are great for variety of applications. I’ve used these headphones for monitoring during recording and nothing else so far. We’ve got a pair of them on hand at the studio where I work and they’re pretty much constantly being used. I haven’t used them for mixing or anything like that, as I never mix with headphones and wouldn’t recommend that you do either. However, these headphones are good enough for checking mixes on for sure. It’s always good to get as many different perspectives as possible for a mix, and these are definitely adequate for that sort of use even though I haven’t had a chance to do so myself. As far as using these for monitoring during recording, they are basically the perfect set of headphones. They have a great frequency response across the board, especially on the low end, which is rare for a set of headphones. They have a crisp high end as well, presenting an overall accurate picture of the sound you send to them. They are definitely more than reasonably priced, as you’re getting a great set of headphones for less than $100 USD. There are definitely a ton of different headphones out there that are worthy of being checked out in this price range, including the Sennheiser HD 280 Pros which are a favorite of mine, as well as other high end Sony headphones in the MDR series, but definitely make it a point to have the MDR-7506’s on your list of headphones to check out as well. Highly, highly recommended for those looking for an overall great sounding set of professional studio headphones.

Sony MDR-7506
For the main I have (aircraft) use, this is the perfect headphone in all areas. I've had a few months, but I have moved about twenty flights of 3 to 15 hours ...

On one side is a little frustrating that there is still a bit bulky even folded, but ... In the same field, the cable (telephone style, good quality and good length) also remains quite large, but it is better than the tiny fragile son headphones phone!

Purchased to hear some music and movies before a long flight ...
Tired of hearing nothing (because of the noise reactors) with the supplied headphones or mini headphones iphone kind ...
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.

Jamian's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nickel!"

Sony MDR-7506
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 :)

Sony MDR-7506
2 months that I use, I have tried many other model whose Sennheiser HD25 II, the monster, bose ...
What I like most is that it accounts for all frequencies. The value for money is good.
With the experience that would do this choice.

Sony MDR-7506
I use this headphone now for almost 2 years and for me the reference studio headphones 2000s. it is the most accurate and renders perfectly the mix of a song, but watch me say that if you buy this headset for listening to music at home or play hard as a DJ in a nightclub. I think that's what you need (the HD 25 is better for that) because this headset is primarily a tool rather than a CONTROL MIX high-end headphones to enjoy listening to an album because even if the sound is super good this headphone appears to have been designed to have better control of the frequency when have finished mixing a track in the studio he has a sweet bass headphones HI FI standard. it is also ideal for a drummer or a singer taking or other musician who prefers to record with headphones, the sound reproduction is perfect

a bomb that headphone!

Oliviercool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A headphone more suited broadcast"

Sony MDR-7506
I bought this headphone because I can not hear my Fostex T20RP outdoors with my portable recorder Edirol R-44 when I catch his in noisy environments.

It's true that compared to my Fostex, it sounds more musical and less "digital" but in fact it depends on what you did with it. Less bass, treble very far, its linear, so it's great for interviews or singing (mostly in French).

With Fostex, must "seek" sound in all its depth and all its layers and it demands attention. But once his "found", they are extraordinary. When to Sony, the sound is more obvious, no need to "search", we hear directly evident.

This does not mean it is universal, far away. To record music, it's better anyway these Fostex - it's not for nothing that I bought three. However, most people will think I prefer the Sony because they can not "find" the sound of the Fostex precisely.

In addition, he is reticent about the ears for a closed and it is foldable, moreover, makes it easier to cram during transport ^ ^ Its telephone cable with other cables hanging when it comes to untangle but hey .. .

It is just a bit fragile after just a few uses, this is one of two pads can be removed. They are removable to allow cleaning.

A classic.

Sony MDR-7506
How long have you use it?

I use it for about 1 week and I understand that my opinion is a bit chilly.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

I like the fact that the headphones cover the ears well, it is a comfortable headset, but I preferred the velvet cushions ...
I love the design! Personally I have tried many models in the store (most of the general public) and I have never been enthusiastic about the design often too "big" or too "plastic".
The sound played is obviously good. I never tried to high-end models but I really was surprised with the quality of headphones I've had before. I admit that I totally rediscovered some music.
Something very nice and convenient is the fact that these headphones are closed on themselves with ease.

In the least, I will mention only the cable is a bit long for my taste and spiral: bof.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Philips SBC HP400 on. Good headphone

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent for me since I ordered the United States. Sure that right now, given the rate of dollars is largely beneficial.

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