Closed-Back Design

Headphones with a Closed-Back design are completely sealed around the ear cup, allowing the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones block out outside noise, giving much better isolation, and minimising sound leakage to those around you.

Needs Amplification

Headphones and IEMs require a certain level of power to sound their best and work at their full potential. When your headphones or IEMs are underpowered, they can sound thin or muffled.

Amplifiers are required to provide adequate power to your headphone or IEMs to perform at their best. Simply put, amplifiers allow a weak audio signal to be boosted to a powerful one.

To put it into perspective, devices such as your phones and laptops come with an amplifier, but they offer very limited output power. This output may not be sufficient to power headphones and IEMs to shine at their best. This is where a dedicated amplifier is required to deliver adequate power to hear your music in all its glory.

Sony MDR 7506

The legendary headphones are still selling hot not because they are cheap, but also they do justice to why they were made for. These headphones are a big no for bassheads or casual listeners who prefer colored headphones over accurate monitoring. If you wish to listen stuff they way they are intended to, these are the cans you should look forward to. The build quality is great, outside isolation is good, fits well around your ears, sounds great, comfortable to wear.... What else do you need from a headphone costing around Rs 6K!

As an Audio Engineer, my biggest cause of concern is it's emphasized high end at around 8-10kHz. You may also feel sweaty around your ears if your room doesn't have an AC. You may feel a little bit of ache after prolonged listening (that's why people prefer Open Back headphones for studio monitoring). Apart from that I'm a bit unsure about the thin wires that seem to connect the cans at either sides (Visible just above the SONY logo).

However, I can't ignore the fact that it's a great sounding headphone despite it's shortcomings. It's Soundstage is impressively wide. Mids are flat which is great for monitoring purposes. Lows End representation is good & tight. They are great for tracking, for listening purposes, for referencing during mixing (Thanks to the wide soundstage). They could also serve as a good headphone for foldback purposes like for drummers. Even it's major shortcoming has been put to good use. Due to their accentuated highs, they are being used by Sync Sound/Location Recordists for determining noises & hisses while recording dialogues/sound fx.

For a common man, these headphones are good if you need a natural sounding headphone while being comfortable & long lasting. Indeed it's one of the best products that Sony made and the constant sales since decades are a proof of it.

Awesome headphone ruling market for more than 30years

I was in a hunt for Quality headphones for my mom who is 70yrs old and does not know to operate technical stuff so my only option is a wired headphone which is hassle free to connect. After long research found these wonderful pair of Sony MDR 7506 which was launched in 1991 and still ruling the market globally even after 3 decades, without second thought I ordered it and thanks to headphone zone team for the hassle free experience they shipped same day I ordered and next day it is delivered to me product was packed nicely and thanks for the playlist suggestion from Headphonezone...ok now sound quality one word awesome I have airpods pro2 and Sony xm5 but this headphone is a piece of art especially all those Illayaraja magic works wonder my mom is happy as she said she never heard these old songs any better before even the small sound details are crystal clear Sony magic!!!

Great experience

Overall amazing headphones. Perfect studio monitors. Very detailed. Having a good time listening in this. Finding something new in every song. I have already used beyerdynamic dt770 and audio technica m50x. But I like these more. Dt770s treble boost was too harsh for my ears. This sounds like m50xs without the extreme high boost and deep bass boost. Sounds fairly flat. You cannot miss any frequencies in these. From deep bass to extreme highs, perfectly balanced, with slight upper mid focus, that sounds very good. That gives the clarity to these headphones. I am working with krk rokit 5 monitors, this headphone gives the same feel, but this gives the detailed sub bass that the rokit 5 cannot give. I'm planning to make this my primary mixing headphones. Thanks to Andrew Scheps for inspiring me to buy these. There is no competition for these in this price range. This one beats the more pricier models. No regrets. Go for it and have fun.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Legendary budget monitoring headphone - since 1991 🫢

As most reviews stated, I can confirm these are one of most accurate sounding with excellent imaging and separation for the price. Excellent value for the price.

Non removable cable is thing to worry.
