You definitely get what you pay for with headphones and after owning these for a few days, I can see why they are rated so highly in the professional field. They sound great and they are affordable. Very light weight and even offer good sound isolation when in use. Comfortable and they fit 100% over my ears even though the ear pieces are on the small side. Includes both 1/8 and 1/4 adapters and a long cord. You wont be disappointed with these.

I consider myself to be a professional audiophile. I pay very close attention to all dynamics of a product and choose not to write reviews unless the product is THAT good. These headphones are THAT good. They touch upon the entire frequency spectrum with clear, concise, undistorted accuracy. A nice flat curve but with great fidelity. Great for studio and general use. The highs never become obnoxious to the point where it becomes piercing, the lows sound wonderful, bassy in the ow range, tighter in the mids - never sounding too bassy or muddy - they retain a nice response at any volume level throughout the frequency spectrum. Excellent quality for the cost. I have tried on a reputable pair of phones that were in the $500 range and these sound much better. Sony provides you with a great cost point and excellent sound and build quality - this product will not disappoint. ... More

I've used these headphones for 10 years at my current job for almost 8 hours a day and I wouldn't even think of switching headphones. I've been an audio producer for 10 years at the same company and use these every day. 10 years and last year I just got a new pair. Where I work I unfortunately can't use my $1000 studio monitors because of lack of soundproofing and adjacent offices that I would disrupt. I was given these headphones when I started and loved them. I use them for audio imaging, production, mixing and mastering. When I finish a project I listen back on the studio monitors and it's a match. These headphones give you a clean, exact representation of the sound being input to them. They don't add bass that wasn't there like other headphones that are more advertised for general public use. These give you the TRUE source sound. They are COMFORTABLE! I wear these for 10 hours a day sometimes. Most over-ear headphones squeeze your head and these don't. The padding makes them comfortable. Now, if you wear them as much as I do the foam will start to break up over 3 years or so...they sell padding replacements!! The only thing that killed my last pair after almost 8 years was that the wire rubbed raw against a desk corner it ran across. Nothing actually wrong with the phones. It was 8 years of a wire rubbing on a desk corner. Guess I should mention that I even use these at home. Also, because of me, so does my 65 year old mother. She loves listening to Yanni on them. I hear "Reflections of Passion" is "utterly beautiful" through these, haha. I can't speak higher of these. Totally pro all around. You don't need to spend more money because in this case money doesn't equal performance. If I want pure audio quality I'll ESPECIALLY pick these over more expensive headphones. I don't want bass, or "noise-cancelling" stuff added by headphones because that's what a consumer wants. If you're looking at these it's because you want true sound. ... More

Reviewed by Johnny Nowhere on Musicians Friend

I'd been using Sennheiser headphones exclusively since the early eighties, but my last pair of HD 280s left me wanting. They were built of sub-standard plastic, which cracked in all of the wrong places with continued use. I was tired of epoxying the parts back together. I needed more metal parts. I was also disappointed with the super-duper sub-sonic uber low frequency response. I use real instruments and the lowest note I play is E on the bass at 42 Hz. Most people can only hear the harmonics, so why do phones go all the way to 5 or 8 Hz!? The results had me 'feeling' rather than HEARING, therefore mixing light on the bass. ...So I got a pair of MDR 7506 Sony phones. WOW. No flubby rubber bass thump, and excellent upper and lower midrange where most headphones lose definition. Compact and light...and with more metal in all of the right places. Ahhh..... killer sound, durability and luxury. At the same price! ... More

Reviewed by Mike on B&H Photo Video

Starting right off with the bottom line; selecting headphones could be the definition of making a subjective and individual decision. After online research, including reading many B&H reviews of several candidate phones I decided to order a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M40x Monitor Headphones. But if you read on, you'll discover I didn't settle on them. My budget, interests, and reviews had helped me narrow my choices to the M40X, Senal SMH-1000, and Sony MDR-7506. My review won't go into the details of physical description or specs that you can get from the B&H website or other reviews. I dropped the Senal for complaints about quality control, and initially disqualified Sony for lack of a detachable cord. My perhaps flawed assumption about listening to music of all sorts is that talented artists, producers, and engineers tweak their recordings until they sound exactly right for what they want to present. I don't want the headphone manufacturer deciding what music frequencies I'd like to hear boosted or suppressed beyond the artists intentions. I suppose that comes down to wanting reproduction that is as flat as possible. Reading reviews is informative but can be confusing and contradictory. I read different reviews that clearly indicated that each of my prospective phones had a flatter response than the other two. Now I, myself, am adding to that potential conflict. Eventually I realized I'd simply have to toss the dice and try a pair for myself. I'm not an audiophile, I'm not a musician, and I'm, uh, mature so probably don't hear so well anymore either. When I get the chance, I listen to jazz, classical, rock, blues, R&B, most of which many readers would probably not consider current. I really liked the construction, appearance, quality, and initially the sound reproduction of the M40x but something was niggling at me. Some music just didn't sound right. Close, but not quite matching up with what memory recalled. To my ear there was either a bit of bass boost or something else that was slightly suppressing the non-bass elements or vocals of the music. There may be a technical term to describe this, but I don't know it. During my research, it seemed the previously mentioned Sony MDR-7506 headphones received a lot of positive reviews even from people who didn't necessarily use them as their primary headphones. It seems this model has been around forever with only cosmetic changes and logic indicated there must be some reason for that. I ordered a pair from B&H and did a comparison with the Audio-Technica. With the SONYs my music now sounded as I remembered it. I continued my comparison for a few of days to validate and finally decided it was not just my imagination. Both phones are comfortable for the limited time I'm likely to sit still for anything. I'll give a slight comfort edge to the M40xs. My conclusion is that to my ear, for my music, the Sonys are preferable, but the M40xs are quite nice with warmer (?), balanced sound and might be perfect for you. As for my original concern regarding the lack of a detachable cord on the SONYs? Turns out that it's a convenience I don't seem to need. It's no more effort to detach from the music source jack than it would be to detach from the headphones. ... More

I need a flat range to mix. So, no prob here.I use them for recording broadcast interviews and mix video. Not sure if they would be my first choice for music.I will say that if you are looking for a set that will block out external sounds..... these will not isolate. I'm fine with that as I don't have to constantly pull them off a ear to hear what people are saying.I don't have a problem with them... but I do agree that Sony could have knocked off $ by not using that ridiculous (wasteful) packaging it came in. ...

I've had a couple of pairs of these Sony headphones. I got one with my first 4-track cassette player years ago and they lasted forever. I've used them as phones for CD players and have probably heard more music through them than any other single device. I ended up getting a new pair, as my old pair had been beaten up pretty good and finally bit it a couple of years ago.They are fairly accurate and don't seem to blow up the bass like some phones. It might not be totally transparent, but I find them to be more comfortable and less harsh than some closed phones I have used.I've had a more expensive and by the numbers more precise set of Sennheisers that I don't use as much recording.

My personal set of cans were falling apart, so I tried the MDR-7506. I was amazed at how good they sounded and how comfortable they were. It was no problem to leave them on for extended periods when exterior noise was a problem. The trainee jocks were often rough on equipment, but the MDR-7506's stood up to some pretty severe abuse. The frequency reproduction was so good, that I got a pair to use for off air production. I had several brands of cans to choose from, but the MDR-7506 became my go to reference set.

My review is based on using these strictly for music tracking or monitoring. Some people claim these are the goto headphone for recording applications because they have been around forever in studios. I can see why these would be good for editing broadcasting recordings or speech only applications but for music they are way off. I'm not opposed to using Sony for music. I own around 5 pair and prefer their earbuds for ipods and MDR-XB700 if I want high volume without distortion. Bought these for track mixing but the mids and too pronounced. The soundstage puts the mids right in between your ears where cymbals and everything else sounds farther away and are less easy to discern. For mixing it is difficult to separate instruments well. If it weren't for these two things the cans might not sound too bad. Bass is not bad but also right in your ears and kind of scooped around the mid-bass frequency. The more I research the more I understand Sony exaggerates certain freq in each of their models to fit specific purpose. They don't always explicitly state which application the phones fit in their product descriptions so you really have to listen to them in person to determine if they will work for you.In terms of quality, the drivers have never had a problem and no plastic has broken so they are a decent value if they fit your app. Gave them 4stars for quality because the ear pads fall apart almost immediately. ...

Both are great, but do not work for me as well on the job. I should note I still mix on Yamaha NS-10's for some perspective. The 7506's are the most NS-10 friendly IMO. If you do not like mixing on NS-10's than you may prefer DT770's or HD280's for their low end boost. For the money they are great and will work in all studio applications.

I bought these to go along with my amplug to play my bass. I had decent TV/Theater headphones but they just couldn't keep up with the steady bass from a guitar, so time for something good. I did a lot of reviews and found these were the recording industry standard, are supposed to have the best sound for the money and are to be an all around great product. So far, wow! They feel good and sturdy with a far better frame than the plastic ones that come on cheaper headphones. The head band is padded for extra comfort and the ear pads, wow. Nice and soft around the ears and without having a noise canceling button, I find with them on I can barely hear talking right next to me and I raise my voice to talk. They hold on nice, even with their size I can barely feel them there and after two hours of playing they were still plenty comfortable, quite like a good hat. I've tried them on my bass and they can handle even the deepest, darkest rumble very well. On my electric guitar the highest pitch still sings, you will hurt your hears before you cause the speaker to hiss at you. Then when trying it on video games, movies, it makes you feel surrounded by everything, they're that good. But consider this, since they are so good, cheaper products, music, etc. will sound that way. The amplug being a cheaper headphone amp sounds great, but I'll hear static at higher levels. Burned music from CDs sound bland compared to the song on the real CD itself, etc. But that is common with good speakers, I notice it in car audio all the time. So- very good product. I am not even a sony guy, in fact for Audio I am into Pioneer, but the headphones from them were about $70 more and the only way I could justify $100 was that it was good for recording, movies, music, I could use them for anything sound is required. In that aspect, well worth it. I have heard that the ear pads and the like fall apart after about a year, though I've found online all sorts of parts to rebuild them. The GC pro coverage allows you to swap them out and get new ones if that happens, nifty stuff there. They fold well, have a nice bag, good product. Sorry for ranting. ... More

For decades I have used MDR 7506, 7509, 7510, and 7520 headphones from Sony. Sony discontinued all but the 7506, and it's too bad because the 7520s were spectacularly accurate, detailed, and reliable in all ways. (I have been a location sound guy for film, a producer, director, and editor for same, and now I record audiobooks. I have spent much time with headphones.) 7506 are a bit of a professional default in broadcasting and film; good price point, dependably rugged to a point, and a sound that you know. (A little like Yamaha NS-10 near field speakers...in other words, nothing stellar, but you know what you are getting.) Having recently been on a hunt for cans to replace my 7520s, (and currently using Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro), and I picked up a set of 7506s after years of not having them, and I have to say they are fine-ish but do not excel in any way. They are good for location sound, they are even good for general music listening and TV viewing, but they are in no way mastering headphones, nor are they good for hours-long voiceover work. I find them reasonably balanced, if a little bass-heavy (good for location work because you can year your problems better), but the upper mids, where your speech is, is super harsh. Like a knife in your ears harsh. There is a really peculiar resonance that just makes it impossible to not be distracted, and to really depend on what you are hearing. While they are, again, a defacto standard in the pro world, they leave a ton to be desired in terms of true accuracy and long term use. I recently tried a series of cans from AKG, Austrian Audio, Sonys I imported from Japan, and 7506s, and they all performed way below the DT770 Pro in accuracy, balance, comfort, and all around performance. Also, over the years, the 7506 ear pads have gotten lower in comfort, so I replaced them right away with other, deeper pads. This does affect the sound, if you choose to go this route. Doesn't make it better or worse, but does make it different and you have to recalibrate your ears and brain to get used to it. So if you buy these knowing what you are getting into, they are a good value, but that is about it. ... More

I received: Headphones with attached coily cable 1/8 to 1/4 jack adapter Soft (faux?) leather pouch At this price, you WILL NOT be getting the absolute best. The absolute best headphones will cost you thousands of dollars. But these headphones are widely used in the recording industry and have created thousands of recordings. That is a strong testimonial in itself. I use these headphones to predominantly listen to popular music from the 60s and 70s. I also listen to a lot of blues and classic rock. When I'm feeling dangerous, I also put on a bit of hip hop / rap. I am not an audio engineer, so please take my review from a consumer's perspective. I noticed quite immediately that the headphones impart very little of its own signature to it. This is great because it presents the sound closer to the way the artistes/producers wanted it to be heard. Naturally, big budget productions would sound 'bigger' and 'polished' on these. That doesn't mean one should limit it to those recordings - I've heard sounds which were previously burried in the mix on classic jazz recordings from the 40s and 50s! What an amazing revelation. Sound-staging and instrument separation are very distinct, yet organic enough. At times, it feels like I could imagine the layout of the band members in the studio (though these days everyone records track by track, I know). I can't comment on its durability, because I've only had it for a couple of weeks. But I love the coily cable which reduces the mess of straight cables. I think you could stretch the length more than 2 metres (that's 6 ft) with no problems. Beyond that, it starts to put a bit of strain on the headphones, so be mindful. The soft pouch does not have a hard inner-shell thus will not protect the headphones from hard knocks. All in all, this is such a great piece of kit that I thought of reviewing it in case it would benefit others looking for a pair of good headphones. If it was stolen, or lost, I'd buy it again.
