An excelent pair of headphonesI bought these to try them out. I'm currently using them to monitor recordings that I am making of various military aircraft and "sounds of war" as well as music. I am verry impressed. They are holding up extremley well considering the enviornment that I have them in. They also sound supprisingly clear even when covered in dust on convoys and other missions.

My second pair!I have had the first pair for a few months. My clients love them for tracking vocals. I love them for editing the vocals and tracks. Very clean and clear.
Good detailed sound.

Crystal Clean SoundI have been using the Song HD headphones but got a second pair for tracking. I didn't expect them to sound as amazing as they do. Incredibly crystal clean sound. Totally impressed.

The most accurate cans you can get without an AmpGet these headphones. No really...you need them. Comfortable for extended use. Even, transparent spectral balance with no accentuation at any frequency. Acoustically open soft mesh covering the metal (yes metel) drivers. Very good isolation from exterior sound sources with faint bleed. No break-in period and the head bracket sits much farther forward sitting the ear-cups perfectly around your ear snugly. The lower Ohms give you ample drive, so buy a mic with the money you'll save by not buying a heaphone amp. Toss your old cans and make love to your ears with these. Cart em'!

Review of Sony 7510 HeadphonesI have purchased several pairs of headphones over the past few years. I have Sony MDR-400 headphones which are really outstanding. The Sony 7510 are nearly right on par with the MDR-400 at half the price. I had bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones but they lacked the sensitivity and dynamic sound I had expected so I returned them. The Sony 7510 out performed them by quite a bit. The Audio Technica ATH-M50 were very handsome, in the red color, but in sound were not a match for the Sony 7510. I am still looking for another brand to buy, but they must have better sensitivity than was produced by the Audio's. I have wanted to audition a pair of the Beats Pro model but so far have not found any on display for listening. They are quite expensive, but I would still like to see and hear a pair. For an all around great pair of phones I highly recommend the Sony 7510's. I also have purchased a pair of the Bose A-2 headphones and like them also. They are not quite as dynamic as the Sony's but are very light and comfortable to wear. I am looking to possibly purchase a pair of Sennheiser 280 Pro's which I understand put out great sound have a high rate sensitivity which I like. I fashion a good bass response in the headphones I purchase so I am still looking. Another set I am considering is the Audio Technica ATH-D40 which I understand has good bass response as well as high sensitivity. Only time will tell which I think is the best. If you want an all around great pair of headphones, you will not be disappointed in the purchase of the Sony 7510 model. I would highly recommend them to anyone who loves music. Great Price for value received!

Clean Sound, Mostly ComfortableI really like the Sony MDR-7510 headphones, and I'm not crazy about Sony products in general. I work in a room where there's so much white noise it can make someone crazy, so I wear headphones ALL the time, and I need something that can block out extraneous noise. These do the job -- there's no noise reduction technology, but the closed shape surrounds the ears and blocks out SO much noise that you don't need any additional noise reduction. Because of the frequency response range, the audio is crisp, clear, and easy to distinguish from most other headphones. My only gripe is the head fatigue. I've got a slightly larger-than-average head (I have a hard time finding glasses that fit without being custom-made), so I begin to feel some head fatigue after wearing them for about 5-6 hours. Otherwise, I love everything about these headphones, and I would tell anyone that if you want quality sound in a solid, well-built package, these headphones are a great investment.

Sony MDR-7510I do home recording as a hobby, so I'm always trying to get good sound on a budget. I've tried to get by on inexpensive (< $50) headphones but the sound quality has never been good. I decided to splurge and got a copy of the MDR-7510 based on several reviews. The sound is beautiful - much closer to the fidelity of my studio monitors. I can work with these on and get an accurate idea of what tracks are sounding like without waking up the rest of the house.

SONY MDR-7510Good quality studio headphones. Little bit heavy though, and the spring in the head band is too stiff. The ear pads are soft but too thin, and after 15 minutes of listening you feel the plastic case pressing too hard on your ears. At this point you need to remove them, and take a break. I would prefer 4 way swivel, and straight cable. A storage bag would be appropriate for this price.
