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.
