Proven on deeply nodding heads worldwide for well over 20 years now, the Sony MDR-7506 headphone remain the gold standard for tough-built studio, DJ, and personal use cans that will sound great for decades while surviving the test of time, constant use and rough treatment. Anyone who has worked in any studio worth its cabling has likely used a set of these venerable headphones for session tracking, recording or for vocal duty. The MDR-7506 closed-back supra-aural ['on-ear'] earpads are almost oblong in dimension and the fit offers great isolation and listening privacy when out & about, while also preventing dreaded headphone "leakage" into close mics during recording or radio work. The MDR-7506 earpad construction is slightly more rounded overall compared to its 'brother' MDR-7505 model; the larger cushion dimensions can help deliver better passive isolation and (for some) improved long-term wearing comfort; it's also an excellent plus for big-head owners. Portable music mavens street-rocking their iPods, iPads and MP3 players will also find the high efficiency and low impedance MDR-7506 much to their liking, making this famous headphone continue as a long-reigning champion for listeners needing just one headphone that does all things well.
The Sony MDR-7506 come in a standard black with the classic Sony color flashing evident on the outside of the slim-profile earcups. The headband and earcup design offer nifty collapsibility and easy folding for ease of storage and transport. A handy Sony travel bag is provided in the packaging. The stereo plug is a 3.5mm (1/8") connection suitable for easy use with iPod, iPad, and laptop computers. Total cord length is approximately 8.5ft.
