Summary: This review might well make the 7506s seem like a poor set of headphones, they're not, at least, not objectively. They try to fill many rolls, but are only useful for one. Having strong feature sets that can appeal to both professional, and audiophilic users in one way or another is appealing to the...
Pros: Sturdy, isolating, decent bass response.
Cons: Not musical, very fatiguing, poor ergonomics
Summary: Despite its old design, the Sonys were initially very clear with a wide frequency range. The materials and workmanship are good, they are lightweight and reasonably comfortable, with soft but durable ear pads. They fold and are easily carried.
Pros: Initially clear and detailed sound, lightweight, foldable
Cons: Very short Sony warranty, long and non-replaceable coiled cord, distorted bass in left earcup
Summary: I have been a Sony customer for a very long time, however I was never aware of their headphones. When I was looking online for a pair of headphones that offered great sound reproduction, these came up. After reading the reviews and the history that these headphones had, I decided to purchase them.
Pros: Great sound reproduction, Good bass, Portable
Cons: Very small sound stage, The coiled cord is VERY long, you will require a good audio source to get the most out of these
Summary: I really like these... but I like good clear high frequencies.
Lots of detail in the music.
The pads rot off over time (faux leather) but you can replace them with pads meant for an alternate brand (mine are now velvet).
I would not be without them.
They have stood the test of time.
Summary: Some of my favorite cans. I love them for work, and wear them 8+ hours a day when we are recording sound on set. Stock pads kinda suck, but if you put the Beyerdynamic pads on them, you will never want to take them off.
Pros: SUPER COMFORTABLE (w/ Beyer Pads), Extremely Durable, Recording industry standard
Summary: I got these in Guangzhou for the absolutely low price of $55. They're quite small in size compared to some other headphones I've seen.
I have been using them for several months now, & I'm very satisfied with their comfort, especially during long listening sessions.
Summary: I've owned these headphones since 2002, yep, they have lasted me 10 years. Used all this time in my home studio I thought they were rather expensive at the time. I see they are now under $100 what a bargain.
Pros: Durable, well defined, crisp, precise, isolating
Summary: I have always taken issue with the name: these aren't large diaphragm cans. I consider 40mm diameter drivers to be average. 50mm would be large. 30mm would be small. But that's just my opinion.
This was my 3rd set of cans after re-entering the hobby last spring.
Pros: Easy to apply earpad mod that improves bass response
Cons: Not the greatest detail, sounds like a closed back can.
