Coming from the world of pro audio and stage monitoring, the Sony MDR-7550 in-ear headphones offer analytically clear sound with a slightly forward tone that cleanly details vocals and midrange frequencies with amazing clarity. Bass response remains completely present but highly controlled and recessed behind the mids/highs, so monitoring for timbre and tonal transparency becomes greatly enhanced without overt bottom-end coloration. These in-ears are ideal for listeners gravitating towards a pristine sound that places subtle, nuanced details in the foreground of the recording. Of course, the MDR7550 are also perfect as true professional monitors for audio work or live concerts.

The Sony MDR-7550 earpieces feature nifty ear loop 'hooks' that secure the headphones to the earlobes as required for extra-active uses. This feature also makes the MDR-7550 a recommended candidate for exercise and gym work since the in-ear stability simply can't be beat by any other headphone type or design. However, the overall  in-ear 'seat' into the ear canal remains fairly shallow and non-invasive, so while the MDR-7750 provides fair isolation specs, the ergonomics are likely better designed for listeners who want to remain aware of their surroundings to some degree or for stage musicians/vocalists who want to still hear some of the floor wedge monitors or instrumental ambient sounds.
