Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphone – : A good headphones with overall clarity

Fantastic sound quality and great volume and a very low price, very happy.

Still the best headphones around. Great pair of headphones for studio and field work. I mainly use them for sound recording and video editing and they perform both tasks very well. They give excellent true sounds across lows, mids and highs – they aren’t too bassy which is perfect for picking up true audio. They are especially useful for recording voices as they offer a well-rounded sound profile (this also depends on the microphone you are using). These have been the industry standard headphones for 20 years so don’t fix what isn’t broken. I’ll be buying these for many years to come.

If you have a copy of ‘four tet – there is love in you’, then put on track 1 ‘angel echoes’. Can you hear the background crackle playing through the intro to this track?i couldn’t until i bought my sony mdr7506s. The quality jump between the mdr7506s and my old sennheisers is impressive. I’m an audio visual producer so naturally work with audio day in day out. These are simply great headphones. I use them in the studio and on the tube (although the long curly cable isn’t a great travel asset as it gets tangled and is difficult to store). Things to bear in mind if you’re considering mdr7506s.

Comments from buyers

“Still the best headphones around, The difference starts here., Incredible, Amazing, Unbeatable Value, Just Buy Them.”

My go-to headphones for audio work. These are my go-to headphones for the audio part of video editing. They do the job as described, to a standard that is predictable and dependable. I’ve used them both indoors and on outdoor location, and t hey work equally well in both cases. The ear coverings are now wearing out and need replacing (i bought these ages ago and am doing this review retrospectively). This is not a ‘fault’ of the product; it is stated by sony and accepted by professional users that the ear coverings simply end up needing replacing every once in a while. (in my case, we’re talking about vast numbers of hours of use and occasionally abuse).

They are good,comfortable,sensible headphones,,your not going to blow the roof off but they are descent.

I absolutely love these headphones. I absolutely love these headphones. As a bass player, i still can’t get over the bass: how well defined it is, and the low notes. There’s a real three dinensionality to the sound as well.

Incredible, amazing, unbeatable value, just buy them. . I was looking for a replacement for my bose headphones that stopped working just out of warranty and i was looking for something not too expensive, i searched for best headphones on a budget and these came up. I read some reviews and decided they were worth a try. My verdict is simple: if you are reading this and you are looking for great headphones in the price range of these headphones, just buy them and you will be amazed. I have rediscovered lots of music that just sounds amazing through these headphones, and the incredible thing is that these phones cost less than a third of what my last couple of pairs cost. These are better then my bose, better then my beats, and better than any headphones i can recall using in a very long time. The sound is bright and crisp, with incredible detail. You hear things that you previously didn’t appreciate in music, thats my experience anyway. I was worried that they may lack bass, they don’t lack bass at all but they are not as artificially boomy as some headphones and believe me thats a very good thing. They are very comfortable, and sound leakage is remarkably low. They isolate a lot of background noise, but are not really suitable for noisy environments. My only gripe is that the price in the uk is about double the usa price.

I used these for videography filming and. I used these for videography filming and then the editing. I work for an electrical retailer that sells hundreds of headphones and none of them can match these.

The best headphones ever – period. These are the best professional audio headphones for the money, there is no argument. I have been working in digital media as an art director for over 20 years and i have been using sony-7506 for over a decade and a half. I refuse to put anything else on my ears and i have been through 3 pairs of these headphones, they are simply a must. These are an industry standard in the film industry, music industry, and for audio enthusiasts. If you look closely you will see directors, actors, recording artists wearing this model, you begin to see and realize they’re all over the place. Yes, of course, technically there are ‘better’ headphones out there and accordingly the prices can be quite steep. If you desire balanced, flat, professional audio headphones at the best price there is nothing that compares to the 7506. I love these headphones so much it probably is not healthy. Solidly built and will survive dozens of power drops to the floor, ripping off your head and rubber banding hard against objects when the cord gets snagged, etc.

I can say these are the best headphones and bill quality is excellent. I have been through a few headphones. I can say these are the best headphones and bill quality is excellent.

I bought this product for myself and my friend who is a producer listened to them and i didn’t get them back. Highly praised them for their levels. Not loud like beats (which i also have) or as bass heavy but much more balanced.

A good headphones with overall clarity. A good headphones with overall clarity, build quality is a bit worrying,the wires are heavier than the phone and worried if this breaks the connectors, other than that, a solid sony headphone.

Can not really fault, very good headphones. . Well made, good sound quality, really can’t fault them. After over a year of using the headphones, they are still going strong.

My ears are bleeding with joy. These are the most expensive and best headphones i have ever bought in my life and i’m 49, i wanted to listen to my bowie albums in a way that would truly bring out the beauty in his songs, the guitar and piano sounds are truly amazing it’s like fresh new music that’s been reborn again, you can actually hear singers gulping and breathing in, these earphones pick up every small detail this is the best purchase i have ever made and would fully recommend that if you need headphones that you look no further.

Let me start by saying that i bought these 6 months ago after a long search and a friend’s recommendation. I originally got them to listen to while playing bass (as to not bother my housemates), but i was so happy with them that i just decided to use them at work every day as well. The pros:- built like a tank – i use them at home, at work, when travelling and going on long flights. I must say that i’m not too rough and take care of them, but i do yank them off my head once in a while. They still look and feel as new and there’s no apparent signs of breaking on the sides, which has happened with previous headphones that i’ve owned. – the cord, which is about 1m long but can go up to 3m, is extremely useful when i play bass and need to move around the room- very comfortable to wear – i have a small head and use glasses, but even after a long day of using them at work i feel just fine. – clear sound, that’s the only way i can describe it – not bass heavy, which i was a bit apprehensive when i first got them, but quickly dismissed when i realized how balanced the sound was and that i could actually listen to things i couldn’t with other headphones. The cons:- the thin and small cables connecting the ear cups to the head band are the only downside for me.
