Sony MDR-7506 Overview

The MDR-7506 is a staple within the recording, film and live arenas. Due to its low impedance and closed-ear design, these headphones do an outstanding job of cutting down background noise while providing plenty of volume in the studio or in the field. Additionally, the closed design helps eliminate headphone bleed when overdubbing in the studio.

The MDR-7506 is an over-ear design and is ideal for use with MIDI workstations, camcorders, or other equipment with less than powerful headphone amplification. The headphone has a foldable design, making it convenient to store or transport, and its coiled cable allows it to stretch and spring back into place whenever you need a bit more reach.

Circumaural closed-back stereo headphone ideal for use in professional applications
40mm diameter drive units deliver deeper bass, lower distortion, and wider dynamic range
Neodymium magnets for maximum energy and minimum size
Compact, foldable design
Coiled cable allows for better mobility and reach, while also preventing snags from tugging the headphones right off your ears
OFC cable and gold plated Unimatch plug provides both 1/8" mini-jack and 1/4" TRS phono connectivity

True Sound

Solid build and sound quality. Clear, full-spectrum audio, excellent set of monitors for video editing or audio mixing. Conveniently folds up into a compact bundle and stores nicely in the included drawstring pouch.

good product; happy user

Good price. Works very well. From a non-audiophile, great sound ... good highs, solid lows. Use with laptop & occasionally with cellphone. Comfortable. Well thought out with nice carry bag. Reasonable cord length.

Comfortable and Quality

The headphones arrived surprisingly quickly and smelled very good, like a freshly-baked air mattress. When I plugged them into my computer, I could hear sound! The sound was very smooth and buttery, like smooth butter. I listened to a YouTube track called Every day, I need music to focus on work - 5 hour lofi hip hop mix / study / work /sleep and it was much better. I could hear all of the crackles of the fake low-fidelity analog sound device. 10/10 would buy again if I didn't already have them.

A solid choice

I've been using the Sony Professional Headphones since my days working in broadcast radio decades ago. Today I do a lot of video shooting and editing in my career, and these are the headphones I take with me in the field. The quality is awesome, as is the ability to fold the ear pieces into the head band... which makes it easy to pack with my other gear.

Best headphones I've ever used

I'm a deposition videographer and I'd been using the 7506 since the beginning-wear and tear didn't stop them for 28 years, but it was time to replace them. Luckily, this exact model is still made and is still the gold standard for field audio mixing. Broke in the new pair the morning after they arrived. Best for this application by far.

Great cans. B&H got them to me 2 day!

I used these phone for most of my entire 29 year career as a production sound mixer. Now retired, I still use them at home. Special price was just at the right time to replace the old ones.

I'm told that since these are 63 Ohm impedance, they require a fair amount of power to work properly. In other words, I was told to expect poor results from an iPad or iPhone. Is that correct?

Asked by: stan
It may be fixable depending on where the issue is on the headphone. For a repair option, you could reach out to Pro Sound Services at 212.586.1033. However, the cost of the repair be close to the cost of a new pair anyway, in which case we recommend purchasing a new pair.
