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

Sony MDR-7506 Reviews

Still can't beat these

By Bari
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-16

This is my third pair of MDR headsets for use in a home recording studio, simply because they hold up in everyday use and are extremely reliable for mixing. Replacement ear pads are widely available from a number of vendors, and are easy to change. I use these along with a good set of reference speakers and they seem to match the frequency curve quite nicely. My brother, a retired LA radio announcer introduced me to these years ago and advised they are very widely used across the industry, in fact, preferred by many engineers and talent. The fact that Sony continues to make and sell them, speaks well for the product. The best part is you don't have to shell out several hundred to get quality and accuracy. I would easily recommend these to any content creator involved in monitoring or mixing. They are hard to beat.

Good sound

Comes with pulls-string cloth case (free), so you may not need hard case, and soft bag takes a drop less space. On the other hand, hard case, more protective. You choose. :)

Got these to work on an editing job with footage from a studio and I could clearly hear every mic click, hit and background noise. Very clear, noise cancelling. Great! would definitely recommend.

Great for tracking vocals/drums/acoustic guitars

I run a pro studio, and these are great for isolating tracks for the musicians, of which I am one as well. Used mostly on drums, vocals, and acoustic instruments to maintain their sonic integrity when tracking. They are close enough to the Beyerdynamic DT880 Pros I use most of the time to get the job done without any fuss, and at a decent price point.

Amazing product and delivery

Amazing monitoring headphones, exactly what I needed and they delivered quickly. B&H continues to be the one place I purchase equipment from.

Been buying and using this model over the past 25 years. Very comfortable, with great sound reproduction. Why even look at anything else? It's the best headphone for field use.

Have this kit at work. Got a second one for the house. Been using this model of headphones in my career since last century. Tried and true.

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.
