    Sony MDR-7510 reviews

    MDR-7510 Closed-Back Studio Headphones is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable, Nice & Natural Sound, Fair Price. I bought these for monitoring sound/music for video editing, and it's important to get natural/neutral sound. These headphones produce exactly what I was looking for. It has a good balance between bass, mid, and treble and not unnaturally boomy, like typical headphones available for music. Built quality is nice, the looks is professional, the material is not excellent but good. Not excellent because it's made of plastic, but the quality of the plastic is very good. The leather is amazingly soft and very comfortable to wear. I've worn these for 3 hours straight and absolutely no ear discomfort (very important for editing, as sessions can be hours long). Overall, highly recommended. B&H price is fair as usual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural sound, excellent sensitivity I'm a long time user of Sony MDR-7506 for live recording of classical music, and purchased a pair of MDR-7510 headphones as a step up in comfort and fidelity. At first I was disappointed in the lack of transparency and detail compaired to the older 7506 phones. The sound was best described as boxy. Details were lacking in tutti string and choral passages. That has changed dramatically. To a certain extent, one's ear must learn to accommodate a new sound and its relationship to the sound over near field monitors (or the car speakers). It is said that headphones need breaking in, and this is in clear evidence with the 7510 phones. The sound gradually improved with use, with my usual musical fare at normal (not ear-damaging) volume. The details are now clear and true after about 12 hours on line. I can A-B the 7506 and 7510 phones at any time (two jacks), and find the mid and highs are now comparable. The big difference is the exceptionally clear bass in the 7510s, lacking in the 7506s. Classical bass is not exaggerated, but it has to be there. The same for jazz. In addition, you get good sound levels for live recording, and excellent sound isolation. I would not hesitate to recommend the MDR-7510 for serious listening and mixing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Headphones I really enjoy these headphones for home music listening enjoyment.The sound is very immediate and powerful,but the music perspective still manages to stay out of your head.Mid-range is very rich and present,the highs are clear but not glaring.I prefer to tame the bass a bit,otherwise it is excellent.The overall build of these headphones are rather compact and streamlined.Seem to be made to last awhile,unlike the now deleted 7509,which I formerly owned.Isolation is very good and they get good marks for comfort.They are quite light.The folks at Sony seemed to have addressed and corrected all the structural flaws of the 7509s while retaining the 7509s excellent sound,but with a bit more bass,slightly more presence,marginally less detail(though there is still an overabundance.)I am reviewing these phones without any breaking in period.They are just out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity, comfort and power !!! Excellent clarity and power, these things sound phenomenal. I'm listening to old albums that I've heard a thousand times and noticing things for the first time, like they were remastered. I have a decent pair of Audio Technicas that don't even come close, I'm officially a Sony headphone fan. Super comfy and they block out the vast majority of ambient sound, highly recommend them !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony MDR-7510 Pro Studio Headphones I purchased the MDR-7510 headphones last month and am still in the process of breaking them in. I listen to everything from Bach to Zappa and find these headphones to be excellent. I'm not quite sure if they sound any better than the older (discontinued) MDR-V6 Studio Monitors that I have used for the past 25+ years. Either way, the bass is not overpowering. Mids and highs are very good also. They are comfortable to wear over long periods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I had the Sony Mdr 7506 for 3 years and decided to get this one as a replacement. I'm impressed so far. I'm not a sound technician but I can say it does the work well for me. I will buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable, Proven Headphone With Many Uses The Sony Studio Monitor Reference Headphone has been an affordable, music-industry and musician standard for many years. This newer model improves on the frequency response and sound balance of the previous 7506 model around for years. If you are an audiophile enthusiast who wants the most elevated listening experience with CDs, vinyl or audio files, you can find numerous higher-end models but spend significantly more money. Do so if this is your goal and you have the bucks. But if you want good, sound re-creation and balance across the audio spectrum from you recorded playlist music, musical instrument, or as a studio reference monitor, this is a solid choice. And amazingly, this phone is very efficient at handling the output from a PC, tablet or cell phone without the need for a pre-amp. Comes with a mini to quarter inch plug adapter for all uses. Folds up to a more compact size with soft carrying case. Comfortable to wear and ear cushions are replaceable if worn out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clinical Reference Tool These headphones are great for the price point, and I certainly prefer them to the Sony MDR-7506 (I think these are sturdier, fit better, and sound better), but at the end of the day these aren't designed to flatter what you're listening to. While the frequency response isn't necessarily super linear, they do a good job of reproducing a wide range of frequencies evenly and transparently. This means that frequencies in the critical band seem to stick out a little bit and sound harsh, at least to me. These are a great tool for critical listening and tracking, and I'd be more than confident taking these out on a shoot or for field recording, but I do wish that there were more parts made of metal and that the earpieces would rotate more.
