5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 24 July 2008
By Kaz
Was looking for a 50-150 pair of good quality closed headphones,
I read a lot of reviews before finally deciding on the Sony MDR7506 (Amazon.com, Google .etc) and I have to say they don't disappoint, these headphones sound great and are very comfortable (though give them a week to break in), I use them all day long and even whilst running on my treadmill as they stay-put and don't jump around.

I could name 30 different alternatives I looked at during my search but the few I narrowed the search down to (based purely on reviews) were the Sennheiser HD280pro (my second choice), Beyerdynamic DT770, Beyerdynamic DT 235, Sony MDR-V600 and the Sony MDR-7506.

The only down side to the Sony MDR-7506 to me was the lack of soft ear-pads (which is a personal choice), but I found even this to be easily fixed in the form of "Beyerdynamic DT250 Replacement Ear Pads" that are perfectly compatible and interchangeable with the Sony MDR-7506 Ear-pads, which was a superb find providing both quality and comfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cans 21 Aug 2007
By Paulos
Verified Purchase
I bought these on the recommendation of a pro sound engineer and I'm very pleased with them. They sound great, are very comfortable to wear, and are currrently making recording a joy in my studio. I previously used Beyer DT100's and the Sony's are so much better in every department. They're enclosed so very good for studio use. I did try out the Sennheiser HD600 and Grado headphones as well when choosing, and money wasn't an object. I still ended up choosing the Sony's, which I think says a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try out this quick test... 25 April 2010
Verified Purchase
Try out this quick test...

If you have a copy of 'Four Tet - There Is Love In You', then put on track 1 'Angel Echoes'.
Can you hear the background crackle playing through the intro to this track?
I couldn't until I bought my Sony MDR7506s.

The quality jump between the MDR7506s and my old Sennheisers is impressive. I'm an audio visual producer so naturally work with audio day in day out. My opinion? These are simply great headphones. I use them in the studio and on the tube (although the long curly cable isn't a great travel asset as it gets tangled and is difficult to store).

Things to bear in mind if you're considering MDR7506s...

- You're not buying a fashion statement like you are with say Dre's Monster Beats. To be fair, MDR7506s and Monster Beats are entirely different headphones (with massively different price tags!) but my point here is that you're probably gonna look a bit of a geek if you're wandering around town wearing your MDR7506s. But I still do it.
- These are studio monitor headphones designed for accurate playback. In other words they won't bump up your bass to crazy brain vibrating levels but they certainly don't render it flat. Sub-bass stuff like Burial, LFO, 4hero and more generally bleep and bass and dubstep all sound great.

Before buying I read about 'exposed' wires on the headphones, something that I never quite understood. Now I realise that these reviews are referring to the wire which carries audio between the left and right hand cans. Since the jack plug cable is wired straight into the left hand can only there's another wire enclosed within the head strap which takes audio over to the right hand can. As the headphones need to be adjustable for different head sizes this wire needs slack in it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insane 2 Mar 2011
By Dan
I rarely type reviews...but this deserves one.

I'm just the average music listner (well maybe more than average to be honest..) at first I thought I'll get Dre beats being a hip hop listner, after some research I realised how poor that would've been. I found these, they looked great and had insane reviews so I purchased them. The delivery was so fast.

They're so comfy and fit so well on my ears. The sound is just amazing, the best i've ever heard, everyone song you can feel and experience the production. But if you do purchase these, you better start getting your music in very high quality because the poorer quality music (lower bit rates) really do sound bad.

The bass isn't too overwelming like alot of headphones these days. They're very crisp and clear and have a great balance. They're not quiet, they have a real punch. They're not noise cancelling (I don't think so anyway) but they do a great job of not leaking the music and keeping sound out of your ears.

Don't waste your money, I'm so glad I did my research and got these.

If you don't get these then you're not awesome.

In our musical house, the four of us have a total of 12 pairs of earphones/ headphones between us (the majority being Sennheiser models). A pair of earbuds for each iPod, a lightweight set for the laptop and a pair of full-size cans for tv and stereo. I still have my pair of Sennheiser HD 414 that I bought new 20 years ago (awaiting a new cable) so I listen to 2 or 3 different pairs per day. All are squarely in budget territory, 30 - 40 and they have been great. But I have been reading too many top-end reviews and always hankered after a really good set of headphones. But could I justify the expense?

Then I was reading a great review site, the Wirecutter, and came across their review of the best $150 headphones, [...]

And when I saw their test winners were only 69 on here Sold by Appods and Fulfilled by Amazon with Super Saver Delivery I thought I'd splash out.

I was aware that there were some fakes out there and checked out some unboxing videos on Youtube which clearly show the differences in packaging and product. I am glad to report that the set I received from Appods are genuine.

I have been wearing them for the last 4 hours and they sound great, head and shoulders better than all our other headphones. A very balanced sound with smooth, deep bass, a clear mid range and detailed highs without being too harsh.

They are lighter than all our other full-size cans and very comfortable. They isolate well, preventing outside sounds coming in and also not leaking much out.

I'm very pleased with these Sony MDR-7506 headphones.
