    Any thoughts on these folks?

    I’m thinking of buying a pair to replace my clapped out Sony MDR v700 (bought on impulse years ago for too much money) which have been on their last legs for a while and finally broke today.

    Thanks!

    Not really a fan of Sony products but the Reviews on Amazon seem pretty good relative to their price..

    I found a brand new of 7506s for 50 quid from Hong Kong including postage and I’ve managed to super glue the old ones for now… so yeah I’m excited!

    Yeah I’d reccomend them to anyone. I got a pair of closed Bose headphones too but can’t find them online as they’re a few years old but they’re awesome too, I like Bose..

    Whats the beef with sony products? Just wondering cos im currently looking at a few different headphones one of which is the Sony Mdr v55 cost they seem to be good quality for their price range, really want a pair of Marshall Majors but they seem priced up just for the look of em rather than quality wise

    Don’t know mate just never really been a fan of them. For a set of cheap(ish) headphones they can be quite good, but imo you’re better off going atleast midrange for a quality pair of headphones that will last and have better sound quality.
    I find on some headphones if the bass is good it can compromise the mids or highs and vice versa..

    It also depends what you want them for though, my Sennheisers definitely arent travel headphones.

    As long as they don’t sound like crap and have some bass to them they are good enough for mixing. Producing on the other hand you want something with a bit more range. Although Producing with headphones is tricky when you come to the stereo shaping/widening etc. Even with 5.1 processor amps it is tricky I find.

    we generally use the rig to monitor when we are making tunes…..and those headphones have a frequency response which suits my hearing perfectly. If I am making tunes without the rig ie using headphones I know how its going to sound on the rig. That could be lengthy experience of using both together of course.
    Its my opinion that no headphone driver is big enough to reproduce bass and sub bass correctly – they just are the wrong size for the sound frequency
