Get Pro-quality Sound from These Affordable 'Phones

Sony's MDR-7506 headphones are one of Sweetwater's most popular choices for professional studio monitoring and focused listening. You'll find MDR-7506 headphones in virtually every recording studio on the planet. Why? Because these exceptionally affordable headphones give you studio-quality sound and impressive sound isolation, but they're still comfortable enough that you can wear them for even the longest tracking or mixing sessions. Their closed-back design and thick earcups keep sound from leaking out into microphones, and they also provide a consistent listening environment anywhere you use them. And unlike most folding headphones, Sony MDR-7506s can easily withstand the abuse of daily wear.

Sony MDR-7506 Closed-back Headphones at a Glance:
  • Exceptional sound quality for any application
  • Closed-back earcups lock sound in and block out noise
  • Flexible and foldable design provides maximum comfort and convenience
Exceptional sound quality for any application

Sony MDR-7506 closed-back headphones are known throughout the music industry and beyond as one of the best-sounding yet most reasonably priced headphones available. We could say it's because of their large, well-tuned 40mm drivers or their gold connectors and oxygen-free copper, but truthfully, there isn't only one thing that accounts for how good they sound. The fact is that more Sweetwater customers recommend MDR-7506s than just about any other headphones for one simple reason: they simply sound amazing.

Closed-back earcups lock sound in and block out noise

Part of what makes listening through a pair of Sony MDR-7506 headphones such an exceptional experience is their earcup design. To provide you with extraordinary acoustic isolation, Sony gave their MDR-7506 headphones thick, widely spaced earcups. These earcups not only reduce ear fatigue (a major bonus for those extra-long listening sessions), but they also lock sound in. That means you don't have to worry about your monitor mix bleeding into your microphone when you record or your amp overpowering your headphones.

Flexible and foldable design provides maximum comfort and convenience

It's a good thing Sony includes an 1/8"-1/4" adapter with their MDR-7506 headphones because you're going to want to use them with your iPod, too. What's more, they fold down neatly, so you can take your MDR-7506s with you wherever you go. Want to monitor single-eared? No problem! Swiveling mounts let you choose whichever ear you prefer (that makes them great for DJ use, too). And no matter what size your head is, a fully adjustable headband that's firm but not too tight makes MDR-7506 headphones a perfect fit for anyone!

Sony MDR-7506 Closed-back Headphones Features:
  • Perfect headphones for professional studio monitoring, detailed listening, DJing, or just enjoying music wherever you are
  • Closed-back design provides you with a consistent listening environment while isolating sound inside and outside of your headphones
  • Fully adjustable headband provides maximum comfort
  • Durable folding design provides quality that lasts for years and folds down for easy portability
  • Stereo UniMatch plug allows you to plug into both 1/4" and 1/8" headphone jacks
  • Gold connectors and oxygen-free copper cord give you top-quality sound transmission
  • Frequency response extends from 10Hz to 20kHz - easily covering the whole audible spectrum
  • Includes a handy soft case
Sony's incredibly affordable MDR-7506 headphones give you top performance in the studio, onstage, and on the go!

My favorite earphones.....

I have several pairs of these headphones in the studio. These babies last a long time and are very comfortable for long sessions. The sound is very clear and accurate.....I look for (or should I say, I LISTEN for) headphones that don't require EQ or compression adjustments. I have another brand that I like, too, but these Sony's are our day-to-day, go-to cans..... Thanks to James Masterson for his help and feedback during the purchase. I bought these to replace an older set that were worn they get daily use.... The price point can not be beat.

Consistant Linear Sound Reproduction

I have been using this exact model of headsets for years at work and finally decided to purchase a pair for my new home video editing system with good reason(s). First, when listening to lots of video during pre- and post-production phases, it is important to not experience "Audio Fatigue" from high volume monitoring. The Sony MDR-7506 are both Linear in Response and have great enough sensitivity to be able to hear all sound at lower levels. They are also very comfortable for wearing over long periods and conform well around the ears without the feeling of pressure. In my forty-plus years in the business, I've used many models and brands, but have always preferred these Sony Headsets above all others. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
