  • Summary: These are the finest sounding headphones I've ever owned. I've owned Bose, Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Kilpsche and more and these new HD drivers DO sound noticeably cleaner then all. I know there are even better sounding headphones on the market but you'd literally have to spend double or even triple to top these. Also though they list for $260 you can totally find them for around $150-$200 if you shop around. Absolutely recommended.
  • Pros: Amazing sound clarity for the price.
  • Cons: Nothing big enough to mention.

  • Summary: From the various headphones I have owned my favorite till now has been MDR-V6. I have the HD-25-1 II as well and from the perspective of sound they are very good but I am not a fan of on ear headphone. I like them to cover my ears completely and somehow, the HD-25 I II make me a tad uncomfortable on a longer listening session.   I was researching regarding MDR-V6 upgrade and read a few recommendations regarding MDR-7509 HD.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: Not really portable(but I don't care), ear pads

  • Summary: I got them today but I was able to give them a 4 hour listening sesh immediately. I A, B, C, veiwed them againstthe Shure srh440, Pioneer HDJ1500 and Apex HP96. The first thing I noticed was the lightweight but nice grip similar to the SRH440 in feel but not as tight as the Pio`s. The clarity is on par with the SRH`s and clearly ahead of both the Pioneer and Apex offerings.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Light, Good Isolation, Traveler sturdy, Excellent Sound
  • Cons: Clearly designed in the 70`s (not that bad actually)

  • Summary: I ALSO HAVE A SEHNNAISER 565 OVATION AND THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY IS " WOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE !" OF COURSE, THE TWO CANS ARE DIFFERENT, BUT SONY MADE A REALLY GOOD JOB. SHARP HIGH, POWERFULL MIDDLE, DEEPER BASS.. THE ONLY LACK IS A SOUNDSTAGE A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED. 3WATT OF POWER FOR YOUR EARS !

" Closed headphones transparent and neutral. Not aggressive. Beautiful dynamic."

  • Excerpt: 4-5 years ago, I (do) had available (that) a Beyer DT911 (excellent in many respects, for any other use. I care!) I considered buying a headphone more closed (if possible too), less velvety, lovely, or more "uncompromising" bearable during long periods of work for the ear. I had the chance to compare to my home store a dozen headphones in a pric...

  • Excerpt: The Sony MDR-7509 are a set of top tier headphones for use in the studio. They can be used for a variety of purposes, including for monitoring during recording and for broadcast. These headphones really sound terrific. They look much like the other headphones in the MDR series, and I'm pretty sure that these are at the top or to close to the ...

  • Excerpt: Hello everyone I decided to write my experience with the Sony MDR-7509 because I have just one change for BeyerDynamic DT990 PRO. I bought several years ago on the advice of a seller and also because it was, some say the best moment of the headphone in this price range. Note that the use I make is the mix / mastering only....

  • Excerpt: I've had this pair of headphones for years, which is a great testimony to their longevity. Most pairs of headphones last me a year or two, but I've had these at least 5 and they're in great shape. I originally got this on recommendation by a friend of mine, saying that I should go for these over the more popular 7506 headphones that Sony offer...
