I have owned several of the Sony MDR7506 headphones before and I love them as they are durable and they produce a good, relatively flat-eq sound. I use them for audio recording and mixing late at night, and they don't produce a hyped low or high end, so they are pretty good in this regard.
The only downside is that the ear-pieces eventually start to peel off and basically break down, but mind you this is normally after many years of daily use. However, I made the mistake of buying replacement pads that weren't genuine, and this changed the sound somewhat.
All in all I highly recommend these headphones as they are durable and faithfully reproduce audio.
For the money they are a solid bit of kit. I don't feel they are the most comfortable after prolonged use and they do feel a bit cheap compared to many other pro headphones occuping this pricepoint space. However, they a super lightweight which is a plus. Fold down relatively small (not flat) & clamp well to the head. Sound wise, a little coloured but not too bad. They are (relatively) honest. Design: Proper retro!.. They've hardly changed since their inception, I think in 2021 they could use some minor refinements. All that said, still a budget workhorse pair of cans.
I've had one of these for the past 8 or 9 years and it finally died earlier this year. My original headphones must survived 2 moves over 3 continents and survived just fine. The only thing you must be aware of is that the ear cushions wear out and get flakey... you'll end up with black vinyl / faux leather flakes all over your ears but you can buy replacements almost anywhere and in several different materials. These are probably the most true to reality headphone sound monitors out there and I cannot recommend them enough. The new ones I bought seem a bit lighter .. so maybe Sony has started changing up their materials either to make it lighter to wear or cheaper to manufacture. In all cases the sound is still the same and I've very happy with it.
Sony have done a solid set of cans here with good sound quality, and easily folding and travel friendly design and comfortable fit and padding. I don't think you can find a better set of headphones for the price, and they are competing for quality with brand names and models almost double the price tag. Very easy to recommend on that basis, and very happy with the purchase.
I researched quite a bit before I bought these and am more than happy with them. You hear everything, and even though they touch your ears, they are very comfortable due to the soft fabric laying on your ears. They sound clear and are perfect for just enjoying music as well.
Great headphone for monitoring. Ultimate sound reproduction on instruments. But for those causual listener, you have better choices. This headphone will make the ear feel super tired after few songs due to it’s extra amount of treble.
I use it occasionally for listening to music. Headphone is connected directly to my Oppo BDP-105D media player. Sound is full, spacious and of good quality, but lacks a little bit of warmth, which I would appreciate
