Sony MDR 7506

CNET
23 July 2013
  • Summary: They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100.
  • Pros: Sony's MDR-7506 closed-back, full-size headphones click with all music genres and are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. They sound excellent for their relatively modest price point.
  • Cons: With a coiled, pro-style cable and lack of an inline remote/microphone, some will find the 7506s less mobile-friendly than more modern headphones.

  • 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.
  • Pros: high freq, clarity
  • Cons: pads rot away (over 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
  • Cons: The stock pads suck

  • 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.
  • Pros: Flat response, Precise sound, Comfortable, Price
  • Cons: The soundstage is'nt big enough

  • 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
  • Cons: brittle, bass shy

  • 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.
