Excerpt: First my set up. I have a Mac Mini (2012) with the MDR-7520's connected to a Roland Quad Capture. I use a Shure SM7B and record vocals at 24 bit 192 khz using Sony Sound Forge Pro for Mac (Version 2.0). I bought these headphones because they have a frequency range that goes up to 80 kHz which is just about half of 192 kHz.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: All I can say is wow. I've been using the Sony 7509 for a few years for recording/monitoring/mixdowns and this is such an upgrade, it's amazing to hear stuff I haven't been hearing! Beautiful sound throughout the spectrum, highs, lows, mids, and great clarity. It's a little tighter fit than the 7509's but so then the isolation is greater. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: I currently use these headphones to produce dance music. Over my musical career I have played multiple instruments and worked in various recording studios. I have a very competent studio monitor set up in my home, but until now I have felt like I was unable to design clear crisp sounds unless I was at home. Within the same night of receiving these headphones I was able to make some of my tracks sound infinitely better through more precise mixing and mastering.
Excerpt: Got these headphones as another try in my odyssey of trying to find headphones that can help with mixing & mastering decisions. While I still wouldn't completely trust using only these for either of those purposes, they are definitely the best of all the Sonys I've tried, and will now become my go-to for critical tracking & live-mix monitoring purposes. They are non-fatiguing and give me a pretty darn honest representation of what's going on.
Excerpt: I'm not exactly an audiophile, but I appreciate good sound. I've been using a pair of Sony MDR-V6s for the past few years, and they've been great. However, I recently started recording and mixing music for fun, and I decided I wanted something a little more professional. I was looking for an all-around, closed back pair of headphones that I could use for recording, mixing, and listening to music. I also didn't want to use a headphone amplifier.
Excerpt: These are first-rate headphones! The sound is much better than my old Koss PRO4-AAA headphones. Very flat frequency response actually reminiscent of the old EPI Tower speakers. The price at B&H is much lower than on Sony's own website.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I use these cans to check my mix in the studio. I have alway preferred open back headphones but the sound stage with the MDR-7520's is excellent. The power handling and clarity is amazing. Among the best I have used when high volume is necessary. Very light, comfortable and well built. And most importantly the sound quality is flat and beautiful. There isn't any thing bad I have to say about them at all.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I use these headphones for post-production audio editing and DJing. I've been using the Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, which are great for the money, and until recently I'd thought they were the best closed-back headphones unless you spend a grand or two on the Fostex TH-600 or TH-900. The Sony MDR-7520's low-end response is the most tightest and controlled I've heard from a closed-back headphone.
