    We recently purchased Several more MDR-7502 headphones for our company. We use them for our professional interpreters while interpreting for conventions. Most all the interpreters I've personally worked with are VERY picky about sound quality. We originally had several larger, more expensive headphones, but most of the interpreters prefer these smaller, lighter weight headphones which still have excellent sound quality. We have tried MANY different types of headphones over the years and have chosen these above all others for quite a few years now.

    Use them for my NYC commute via an iPhone and occasionally to monitor with an H2 mic. For music, you may have to turn them up to get decent bass and although they're closed-ear, can cause sound to leak out quite a bit (this could cause you to bother your fellow straphangers and risk being labeled as "that guy").

    Very comfortable but they don't fold up. Cord feels durable. I have small ears that barely stick out from my head and these phones don't clamp onto my skull. I wouldn't say that I could dance around wearing them but they stay on firmly enough navigating the subways of NYC.

      Comments about Sony MDR-7502 Headphone:

      I have a collection of both popular and classical music. These headphones make both types of music sound good. Detail and sound stage are very good. Acoustic music sounds natural with no exaggerated bass. The fit is very comfortable for my head and ears. Can listen for over an hour without discomfit. The price is amazing considering the high quality sound.

          The sound quality for the price of these is quite good. They do not fold, and the ear-cups do not swivel flat, so they're not very good for portable use such as in a laptop bag (which was what I'd hoped to use them for).

              The MDR-7502 is a mini-version of the MDR-7506. The MDR-7506 cover your ears entirely while the MDR-7502 are over the ear but do not entirely cover your ears.

                I purchased a pair of these years ago, and the new ones perform just as the old ones did... stellar. I am hoping these do not suffer the same fate as those ones I had 25 years ago for radio broadcasting... vinyl deterioration on the ear muffs.

                  I will use the headphones in a small recording studio.

                  The headphones are great because they are not too big or heavy.

                  They deliver solid audio through the entire spectrum.

                      This is my first pair of professional-quality headphones and the difference between my usual ear buds and these are SO much better. The difference is staggering. The sound is beautiful, with a great deal of depth and texture, even if I'm just listening to background music on Pandora or something.

                      I haven't tried them out with video/audio editing yet, but I have high hopes.

                      The only downside I can see so far is that I can't figure out how to transport them except on my head/neck. I'm going to have to get a container for them since I can't just fold them and put them in my back like I could with my old earbuds.

                      Great headphones with nice sound. The earpads are a little bit small, so this can fatigue your ears, and also don't bend, so, this can be an issue if you plan to store in a small carrying case.

                        The Bad,Very uncomfortable for long term wear, never found an adjustment that was comfortable!!
                        The Ugly,Right earpiece adjustment failed shortly after the return period lapsed. I have jury riggesd a fix using a rivet, poor at best.esetentially junk.

                          I use these to monitor recordings of convention breakout meetings and other AV tasks. They sound very good and they're much more robust than the cheaper Sony cans I'd had before. I like the metal headband and the screw-on 1/4" adaptor that doesn't get "left behind" when I switch machines.

                              I use these everyday. Mostly outdoors with ipod. They are durable--metal under over-head casing. Comfortable ear pads. Not too small, not too big--just right. Greatt sound. Powerful bass.

                                I bought my first pair of MDR-7502 headphones in 1991, for the same price as now (2013). They are really unbeatable in accurate sound reproduction, without spending many times more. There is a reason the film industry continues to rely on these headphones for monitoring, they are truly great. Built to last too.

                                    I use these for audio recording work. I find that some of the bigger and more expensive headphones press on my ear cartilage in a way that starts to hurt over time, and these don't. The sound is accurate through them, the fit is good - I can clearly focus me on the audio from the recording and not hear ambient noise in the room - and the price-to-quality ratio is good. Thumbs up from me.

                                    Downside: if you throw them across the room when you're frustrated, they break.

                                        I use these for studio/field recording and feel the sound quality and noise isolation is really good, especially for [$]. The frequency response is nicely bassy and has a strong midrange, good for testing and pre-mixing, etc.
