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 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.
