Wow

  • 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 just bought these for video editing and have noticed a big difference between these and my old ones. It has also helped with editing audio in Adobe Audition.

Allow me to produce when not in a studio

  • 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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Form Factor

Solid & reliable for pro use

  • 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.

Great Headphones

Jazz Daniels, B&H Photo
20 December 2013
  • 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.

Sony MDR-7520 Headphones

5 September 2013
  • 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

Made me a believer!

  • 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.

The Perfect ATH-M50 Upgrade

Leo the Lion, B&H Photo
29 July 2013
  • 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.

Clarity

  • Excerpt: These are quite possibly the most accurate and true-to-life headphones I've ever heard. The bass translates perfectly to loudspeakers and because the treble is slightly quieter than other 'reference' headphones it also translates nearly perfectly. Much better value and a far better product than buying near field monitors for around the same price.If you're thinking about pulling the trigger on these, do it.
  • Pros: Accurate Sound, Clear Sound, Comfortable, Durable, Flat response, Lightweight, Low distortion, Low Impedance
  • Cons: Low Impedance
