    Sony MDR-7550 reviews

    MDR-7550 Professional In-Ear Headphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Balanced, great detail, Nice Bass This headphone a phone that I listen to it and fall in love with it (without any burn in time). This headphone gives great detail in music (nice bass, mids, and highs). What I really like about this headphone is its very nice detail bass (exp subass) and wide soundstage. The soundstage is so wide that I feel I am listening to an over-head headphone. I believe this is an underrated headphone. This headphone is like the opposite of H3. No many people know about this headphone because it's for in ear monitoring. Overall, I really recommend this headphone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from DAMAGED. SENT BACK FOR REPLACEMENT. The in-ear headphone system was left by the delivery carrier in a hot (unventilated) postal residential mail box during a very hot summer day. Upon unboxing the package I discovered the item was damaged. I telephoned BHPHOTO return/exchange services where a professional, courteous and fast response was rendered to me. I sent out the damaged item via UPS where they replied in less than ten days that they received my return. They said it will take three days for processing of my exchange. Now I am waiting for the promised replacement item. Very impressive professional service! I rate you as among the best multi-item stores online. Way to go BHPHOTO!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended Positive review, however - in order to get proper flat signal response and correct bass response, the supplied tips do not give a good enough seal. I replaced the stock tips with the Comply TX-200 filtered tips (sizing between the Sony tips is the same as the Comply sizing), and that made the difference. This review is based on that modification. I am a former recording engineer, full time producer, musician and DJ. I have been a big fan of the Sony MDR-7506, MDR-7509, and MDR-7509HD. All of my experiences have been positive with the above products: the signal response is flat, with a little roll off on the low end, but it was consistent, so it could be learned (for mixing and critical listening). The units above were incredibly robust, and I am not ashamed to say I've been incredibly tough on my equipment (in and out of luggage, dropped, neglected, smokey environments, etc.). Also, these are the only cans, except for the AKG K240s (which do not travel well), that could be worn for hours upon hours. Because of my experience, and because I needed an IEM that could flatly reproduce audio materials and give me the same kind of experience as my other Sony headphones, I bought these. I'm not disappointed. Very flat response. Comfortable fit, but I think the nature of IEMs is that they won't be as comfortable as an over the ear studio phone (I can literally forget that the MDR 7509HDs are on my head when I'm in an air conditioned environment) over time. However, portability makes up for the difference. I would not be afraid to do preliminary audio mixes in these IEMs, or do revision mixes done on Near-fields. I recommend these if you are looking for something that can give you solid, consistent performance, but at a lower price tag than a custom molded IEM. Why not five stars: I've worn more comfortable IEMs (consumer grade), and when you have a solid seal, the tips can be irritating after a couple of hours. Also, the stock tips are not usable for flat response (would be fine for casual use, or instances where you need to quickly pull them in and out). Good luck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A HIGH-END (A+) IEH Exclusively use in my computer, audio and home theater room. Silicon buds mostly perfectly soundproof my listening entertainment. Improved and detailed sound reproduction. Nothing more you will desire after you listen to MDR-7550. It will take you in to the innermost pleasing audio reprint from your sound source. Although the wire gets tangled in a minimum manner it is easy to correct.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sounds but too fragile Sounds is okay. It is pretty well tuned so it will be 'love or hate' sort of thing. Build quality is not so great. Seems really fragile. Design looks cool but not serving its purpose well. (Sony does that a lot)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I use them for live on stage and in the recording studio, excellent reference.
