Pros Flat eq sound that's hard to find in today's headphones. Very reliable and still sounds superb. Easy to drive and gives high volume without amplification. Sounds phenomenal with Blu-ray + Dolby audio post processing.
Cons Still requires a decent headphone amplifier to hear that awesome tight bass at lowest frequencies. Some poorly mastered CDs and MP3 at 128 kbps sounds ugly with the instruments mashing up during chorus which is clearly caused by compression.
Summary Well mastered 320 kbps Mp3 and 24-bit Flac files sound amazing. Blu-ray movies sound better than the speaker setup at public movie theaters minus the sound impact to the whole body.
I've had mine since 2005 and still sound greats. I just needed to replace the worn out earpads with a new one and then it's like a brand new headphones again. The only thing that is deteriorting is the headband where the faux leather is now flaking off, but it's not a big deal. It's arguably one of the best closed headphones at this price range, and some people will prefer the M50 due to more bass presence than the Sony 7506. IMO, 7506's midrange is much better than the M50 and that's why I chose this headphone over the M50.
-great sound quality
-good noise blocking
Cons -Too long of a cord
Pros I've stolen from Sony. The sound is amazing,clear,loud,pristine,you name it. The bass is incredible, and the noise isolation is outstanding.
Cons Couldn't find anything so far.
Summary I would recommend this to anyone who loves music. I got this a christmas present for my boyfriend, and as I've read probably just about 800 reviews before buying it, I wanted to try them on and see if everything I've been reading is true, and it is. If you're reading this BUT THIS HEADPHONES, you won't regret it, it's a whole new music experience, it takes music to a whole new level. I'm extremely pleased with my present.
Pros Sound Quality
Cons Low quality cushions, they tear to easy
Summary Well I've always used headphones to even rate the quality of my mixes, i've used from Bose to Sony and Sennheiser but the MDR 7506 really filled my expectations, they have a great response, a great dynamic range and as hard as they can get before the driver starts destorting. I am an audio engineer, music lover and now an MDR 7506 fan!
Pros Excellent sound, springy cord, durable construction, folding design, carrying bag, 1/8" and 1/4" connectors.
Cons I do not have any, but others may not like the cup size or longer cord which may get caught on things.
Summary I enjoy the accurate sound reproduction (20-20 Khz. which is the limits of most human hearing). It is very even without tinny highs or muffled bass. I've listen to these on a computer, iPod, and playing Guitar through a Guitar amp, and the sound was awesome every time.
I've listened to lots of genres of music on these and everything sounds good. Flamenco guitar, vocal Pop, Heavy Metal, Rap (Old skool), all sound great. Live Music even sounds more "Live" if that's possible.
I've tested these against many, many different sets (Sennheiser, Panasonic, other Sony, Koss, AKG, and Bose) and for me, these sounded best overall. Thanks to all the sales people who let me open them all and let me try for myself. Which is what I recommend to anybody buying headphones.
Thanks for your submission!
