    I recently purchased the Sony MDR-7506 studio headphones from Amazon, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed! These headphones offer an incredible listening experience at an affordable price.

    First off, the sound quality is exceptional. The MDR-7506 delivers clear and accurate audio reproduction, allowing me to hear every detail in my music and audio projects. The balanced frequency response ensures that no frequencies are overly emphasized, resulting in a well-balanced soundstage.

    The closed-back design provides excellent noise isolation, allowing me to focus on my audio without any external distractions. Whether I’m in the studio or working on my music at home, these headphones create a quiet and immersive listening environment.

    Comfort is another aspect where the MDR-7506 shines. The lightweight design and plush ear cushions make extended listening sessions a breeze. Even after hours of use, I never experienced any discomfort or fatigue.

    The build quality is outstanding. The headphones feel sturdy and durable, and the included coiled cable adds to their longevity. Plus, the foldable design makes them easy to transport and store when not in use.

    Considering the affordability of the MDR-7506, it’s an incredible value for the price. These headphones easily rival more expensive models in terms of sound quality and comfort. If you’re a musician, producer, or audio enthusiast on a budget, these headphones are a no-brainer.

    In conclusion, the Sony MDR-7506 studio headphones are a fantastic investment. With their exceptional sound quality, comfortable design, and affordable price, they exceed expectations and deliver a professional listening experience. Highly recommended!

    I hope you find this review helpful in making your decision. Happy listening!

    Rewelacja, naprawdę polecam. Nie bójcie się – słuchawki studyjne znakomicie spisują się także w domu. 🙂 Słuchawki mają dobry bas, wbrew jakiejś opinii na reddicie, która listuje się w Google. Kupcie, rozgrzejcie przez 5-15h i zobaczycie, że brzmienie naprawdę daje radę! 😀

    Le cuffie sono uno di quei prodotti che vanno sceltI non solo per i propri gusti, ma anche e soprattutto per le proprie esigenze.

    Ci sono cuffiep er viaggiare, o per fare sport, o per audiofili su cui ascoltare la musica, mentre queste cuffie sono principalmente concepite studi professionali, trasmissioni e lavori di registrazione sul campo.
    Questa cuffia, acquistata su Amazon da Wharehose deal, era già nella mia wishlist da tempo, ed è stata acquistata proprio come cuffia da studio. E’ consigliata da amici che hanno studi di registrazione da tantissimo tempo, e, onestamente, hanno ottime ragioni per consigliarla.

    Premettendo che mi è arrivata in condizioni perfette, completa di tutto la cuffia è pieghevole, durevole, affidabile e gode di una risposta in frequenza accurata su tutto lo spettro. Dal punto di vista estetico, la scritta “STUDIO MONITOR” è presente sulla parte superiore dell’archetto, la scritta “L/R” blu e rossa chiaramente impressa sui lati dell’archetto assicura che non ci si possa sbagliare nell’indossarle.
    I padiglioni auricolari sono ricoperti da una similpelle rugosa e sottile come la carta e l’isolamento dai rumori esterni è sufficiente nonostante il livello di imbottitura piuttosto scarno, è comunque possibile ordinare cuscinetti più spessi se necessario, ma a me piacciono così.
    L’imbottitura della fascia è relativamente sottile, ma le cuffie sono abbastanza leggere da non costituire un problema e si indossano senza fastidi per ore.
    Una caratteristica un po’ strana, (ma fa tanto anni ’90) è il cavo che esce da ciascun lato dell’archetto e si snoda verso l’esterno del padiglione auricolare prima di entrare nell’involucro laterale in plastica del padiglione.
    Quando viene utilizzato con la regolazione più bassa delle cuffie, cioè al minimo, esce uno strano anello di cavo che sporge da ciascun lato della cuffia, e, dal punto di vista estetico, non è il massimo.
    I cursori di estensione in metallo che consentono la regolazione dell’archetto su entrambi i lati hanno utili scale graduate in modo da essere sempre simmetrici ed al posto giusto per ogni uso.
    All’interno della confezione ci sono le istruzioni per ripiegare correttamente i padiglioni auricolari nell’area dell’archetto semplicemente spingendoli verso l’alto, facilitando il trasporto, anche se la plastica leggera utilizzata nella costruzione di queste cuffie mi rende sempre un po’ diffidente per trasportarle solo con la custodia morbida presente nella confezione.

    Nella scatola troviamo anche una scheda estraibile con uno schema esploso dettagliato di tutte le parti di ricambio disponibili, praticamente tutti i componenti, dal cavo ai padiglioni auricolari ai driver stessi, sono sostituibili, il che rappresenta un enorme vantaggio in caso di rottura. La lunghezza del cavo esteso è di tre metri, incredibilmente utile quando è in uso in studio, e consente un ampio grado di libertà di movimento mentre tieni traccia di cose come voce, chitarra e batteria, anche se, come tutti questi cavi, può essere soggetto a grovigli, ma per non avere latenza, è il prezzo da pagare.
    Venendo alla mia esperienza, suonano estremamente bene.
    Tanto per cominciare non enfatizzano troppo le frequenze basse, quindi non sono propriamente cuffie da ascolto (il fatto che non le enfatizzino non implica che ne siano prive) . Piuttosto che concentrarsi sul rafforzamento della fascia bassa, queste cuffie enfatizzano i dettagli nella gamma medio-alta, rivelando dettagli che su altre cuffie potrebbero non essere percepiti,. Il che le rende un’ottima scelta per la produzione il mixing in quanto tutte le possibili imperfezioni sul suono su cui stiamo lavorando usciranno e verranno svelate. In ogni caso, avendo una impedenza modesta, possono essere comodamente pilotate anche da sorgenti come telefoni cellulari o uscite per laptop, per quanto ovvio, io le ho in uscita come monitor sulla scheda audio.
    Ascoltando musica ci si accorge dell’enfasi sulle medio alte, soprattutto nelle tracce di batteria (motivo principale per cui le ho acquistate) i bassi sono stretti, uniformi e perfettamente udibili, ma non pronunciati. Quindi, se dal punto di vista dell’ascolto possono non sembrare piacevoli, è impossibile non accorgersi della quantità di dettagli che le cuffie riescono a riprodurre nelle gamme superiori.

    In conclusione, se queste cuffie non sono la scelta migliore per ascoltare musica in modo “rilassato”, sono decisamente un riferimento se la musica la stai producendo, in grado di rivelare ogni imperfezione del suono (e ogni errore), in modo estremamente diretto e trasparente.
    Hanno soddisfatto ogni mia aspettativa, e le consiglio per questa esigenza (produzione, mixing) di musica, e sono promosse a pienissimi voti.
    Per il semplice ascolto, mi orienterei su qualcosa di più indulgente.

    Let me start by stating that I do not claim to be an audiophile, I am not a sound engineer or even a musician. I am just a guy looking for a comfortable pair of closed-can headphones for recording my amateur podcast that will ideally be versatile enough that I don’t need multiple pairs for different activities.

    Honestly, I was reluctant to order these because I personally think they look ugly, and while they’re highly rated, there are enough reviews about the ear pads peeling or flaking after a short amount of time that I am worried about the build quality. This was further emphasized when I pulled it out of the box to find this very minimally packaged headset. The ear pad material definitely feels thin and cheap to where it’s not hard to believe that they may peel or flake after a year of use. They do sell replacement ear pads ranging from $14-$28 online. The positive is that this minimally put-together headset means that they are the lightest studio headphones I’ve ever used, and this lightness I believe plays a huge role in their comfort.

    The band is a stitched leather material that could potentially be real, with a light amount of padding, over an obvious metal bar. It is one of the wider bands I’ve used, combined with its lightness, means that it’s gentle on the top of the head. The clamping pressure was noticeable but calmed after a bit of use, however, this band is reminiscent of one of those slap wrist bracelets, as it kind of wants to coil itself up. The band extends far enough to wear them with most hats at its max extension.

    The cups have the right amount of pad cushion to fit comfortably over your ears. As mentioned earlier, they do seem incredibly cheap and I have concerns that they will need to be replaced regularly.

    The cans do flip and the band folds, resulting in a reasonably small footprint for travel or storage.

    The coiled cable is hardwired into the can, continuing the trend of cheap engineering, but the coating feels thick and it feels durable enough, considering you cannot replace it if it is damaged (the most common thing to be damaged on headphones). The cable isn’t short, especially if you consider the extension from the relatively loose coil, but it’s not the longest either. My tower is on my desk, and I could plug it into the back without a problem, but it would hinder my movement, and if it was under my desk, I do not believe it would be long enough. Thankfully, I plug mine into a DROP 02 AMP + GRACE SDAC that sits under my monitor.

    What these headphones lack in aesthetics, packaging, and potential quality, they really make up for in sound. I put these side-by-side headphones that cost twice as much, and these still came out clearer. I tested them in virtual meetings while listening to multiple genres of music, an audiobook, editing my podcast, and gaming. Not only do these create a clear realistic auditory experience while listening to people talk, the lightly elevated lows create enough bass to be enjoyable while listening to music. They are even louder out of the box than any other pair of headphones I currently own or have tested them against. I find they are perfectly acceptable outside of the box, but for testing purposes, I did EQ them to oratory1990’s settings in EqualizerAPO + PEACE.

    In the end, I’m not sure you can find a better quality sounding closed-can headset at this price point. They truly are incredible when tested against other models in and above their price range. Not only do they sound great, but they are also some of the most comfortable headphones I have used. My only concern is the build quality, which is a bit of a shame because while I love to find these low-price gems that outshine more expensive competitors, I really would have paid twice as much for a matching quality build… but who knows, maybe they’ll continue to surprise me there too. And if they do, I will return to this review to give them the full 5 stars they deserve.

    Headsets the MDR-7506 defeated: beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, AKG K371, Sennheiser HD 280 PRO, RODE NTH-100, Fostex T40RP mk3.

    Są to jedne z najlepszych słuchawek nausznych jakie kiedykolwiek miałem, w bardzo rozsądnej cenie.
    Lekkie ale delikatne, dlatego polecam zakup w zestawie z etui. Długi i miękki, nieodłączalny kabel.

    Na koniec chciałbym tylko dodać, że dostarczany produkt jest w innym opakowaniu niż prezentowany na zdjęciu – biały karton.

    I’ve had some Sony MDR-V6’s for a lot of years now, and after reading tons of opinions on how they compare to their sibling, these MDR-7506’s, I figured I would pick a pair up and do my own comparison. I know this horse has been beaten to death, but it only took a short amount of listening to realize the differences. But, before I get into it too far I just want to say that both models are excellent headphones; and it’s amazing that either set can be had for less than $100.

    And a WARNING to all buyers. Because these phones have been around forever, and because they are so popular (I think Sony sells more than 35,000 pairs of these a month) there are lots of fakes out there. You can research this on the web, but the safest way to insure you are getting the real deal is to make sure that when you purchase here on Amazon you only buy when it says “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com”. It is the easiest way to be sure you’re getting the genuine article.

    Everybody hears differently, and everyone “listens” differently. We don’t all enjoy the same types of music, and similarly, every set of headphones is not necessarily suited for every genre of music. We all own different source components, and most of us have a limit as to what we are willing to spend on our gear. I believe every headphone review should include a brief summary of the reviewer’s musical tastes, sources, and gear and should always including references to other sets of cans they own, have auditioned, liked, or disliked. With so many variables affecting peoples like or dislike of any pair of phones it is my goal to help those with similar musical tastes and similar gear to determine whether or not these headphones will be a good investment for them personally.

    To that end; I listen to music in practically every genre. I tend to go through different phases, but I enjoy Mozart as much as Metallica, 80’s one hit wonders and New Orleans Jazz, Lady Antebellum or Lady Gaga, Eminem to Zedd. Music has so much to offer in all genres that one could spend a lifetime discovering new things they like. I use my computer to play all the usual manner of digital files, and an Onkyo C-7030 CD player to handle disk duty. Both feed into my Nuforce Icon DAC/Headphone Amp. The digital files via USB and the CDs via analog RCA (the Onkyo has excellent onboard D/A conversion). I have also been playing around with a Little Dot MK2 ii Vacuum Tube Amp (which I am really starting to love). It should also be noted that I use no equalizer to modify the sound of my music (because I don’t have one available in my setup). My headphones include Sony MDR-V6s and these MDR-7506s, V-Moda Crossfade LPs and M-100s, Audio Technica ATH-M50s, Beyerdynamic DT-880 250ohm Premiums, Sennheiser HD 598s and HD 600s (my personal favorite) as well as my 4th pair of Koss Porta-Pros (easy to exchange when you live in Milwaukee) . I’ve tried Grado SR 80s and SR 225s (just too darn uncomfortable), some Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250ohms (I prefered the DT 880s), and my son even owns a pair of first generation Beats Solo phones (Yuk). The other day I threw away some Denon’s (no clue what model, but circa 1990) and a set of Sony MDR-V600s that were both totally worn out. I also own lots of buds as well (my Klipsh X10s being my favorite).

    Like I said at the beginning, these headphones sound great. They are by far my favorite set of closed phones. The crossfades are fun (they’ll make your teeth chatter), but the sound is very unnatural. The ATH-M50s sound excellent as well, but I prefer the Sony’s more natural midrange. I like them with most genre’s of music, but I prefer them with classical, jazz, adult contemporary, jazz rock, and other similar genres of music. The 7506’s (and V6’s) also give the widest soundstage of all my closed cans. When comparing the sound to the V6’s I would say this. Both models have some of the most natural sounding mids I have heard in a headphone. The V6s have more bass and noticeably higher highs, where the 7506’s are flatter through the audible spectrum. That’s pretty much it in a nutshell. It isn’t hard to hear the difference, and you can see it as well by going to Headphone dot com’s “build a graph” page and comparing the two. The build a graph is an excellent page and when I look at the graphs for the various phones I own it shows exactly what I’m hearing myself. I have heard many reasons for the differences between the two sets of Sonys from wiring to cup shape, and I’ve read all the references to the parts list that says they have all the same pieces, but all I’ll say again is that there is a difference. If you like a flatter sound with less of a “smile curve” then these 7506’s are what you’re looking for. If you like a bit more bass and treble I’d recommend the V6’s (though the highs can cause fatigue after a while). If you are looking for cans to monitor or edit video then the 7506’s are the ticket. It’s amazing how accurately they can playback the sound I record with my video camera, and it’s no surprise that you see these on the heads of people in the movie business when you watch behind the scenes extras on DVD’s and Blu-Rays. I have taken the V6’s to work and I use them with my little Nuforce uDAC-2 as the two pair together very well, and the 7506’s are my go-to phones at home when open cans won’t do. The phones are very efficient as well. They play plenty loud without a lot of power, though they sound even better with a nice amp. They are also very revealing. While you will hear lots of details in your music, you will also hear all of the flaws. Music with accentuated highs may also sound shrill and sibilant when using these phones. If you want lots of booming bass you’d be best to look elsewhere. The 7506’s have nice low, accurate, detailed bass, but they aren’t thumpers by any means (nor are the V6’s). If you want some serious thump on a budget watch for the V-Moda Crossfade LP’s to go on sale (you will sacrifice detail and clarity, however).

    The build quality is excellent and I’m alright with the earpads wearing out and needing replacement from time to time (I’m on at least my 5th set in 2 decades with the V6’s). All earcups need to be replaced sooner or later, and if you shop around you can find the Sony replacements for a cheap price. If you opt for some of the velour replacements that are out there you will (or you should) notice a change in the sound (I’ve tried them with the v6’s). It’s also important to watch the foam part of the cups that covers the driver. If it starts to break down it will get pushed into the holes in the front of the driver itself and it will ruin it (this is what happened to my V600’s). The phones are very light, the comfort is excellent, the clamping pressure is pretty light, and the sound isolation is really good too. I also like the coiled cord and the quick change screw plug. I have never had an issue with my cord on my V6’s in almost 20 years and I don’t foresee a problem with the 7506’s. The carry bag is handy and surprisingly durable as well. I do wish they locked in a little tighter when you opened them as they often seem to want to close back up while trying to put them on. You also have to be careful for the right side wire as it can get pinched in the whole works and possibly become crimped.

    You just can’t go wrong with The 7506’s or the V6’s at the price they sell for. You just have to decide which response curve you prefer.

    I says to myself “hey self we need headphones to help with dj’ing”

    I order and think nothing of them until they show up on delivery day and I test them out.

    It’s been a few hours using these and I’m definitely going buy these again when they break in the future. These are too good but I get why they’re not as pricey as others. They look basic as hell but it’s all in the sound that makes up for it. I’ve looked at other ones and they look cool as hell but I’m not trying to waterboard my wallet for both a great looking headphone with great sound also.

    Pros:
    Inexpensive
    Comfortable
    Studio sound quality
    People who recognize the headphones will nod at you like you’re in some special club

    Cons:
    You’ll have to eventually buy them again
    They don’t have different colors
