Excerpt: This is my second pair of these headphones. I bought my first in the 1990s, and they finally fell apart. Great sound for a low price, and I need wraparound, because I'm recording in loud environments quite often. And they fold up. That's actually a big plus.
Excerpt: Sony Studio Monitor MDR-7506's are alone in their class. All the field audio engineers and camera operators I know use this headphone to monitor audio recorded on location.
They are ruggedly built, comfortable enough to wear for hours, and accurately represent what is being recorded.
Excerpt: Heard and read it's past great history among sound engineers/audio professionals and gotta say they are absolutely correct in choosing the 7506 as their benchmark.
These would also be the best choice to pick for your first headphones as it is modestly priced with fantastic and characterful sound...
