Followup Question....

So I can't seem to find the 7506 at any of my local retails but I can seem to find the MDR V600 which I was told is the same headphones but just packaged differently. (Price is also 99.95 as well.)

Any comments or knowledge about this?

I believe the V700 is the same as the MDR 7506. At least that is what several of the online reviewers claimed. I'm surprised you can't find the 7506's in Boston. They are kind of an industry standard. We have several large music supply stores (Sam Ashe, Planet Mars) carrying them (at least the last I looked).

I know. It's weird. I've tried Best Buy, Circuit City, Tower, and Tweeter. All to no avail.

Upon further examination even of the Sony site, it appears that the 7506 isn't even available anymore (see SonyStyle.com)... the 700 is the $150 pair and the 600 certainly seems like the same specs as the 7506... anyone else have a comment?

thanks!

Yeah, I saw that but I wonder if it's just older stock?

"Older stock"?

You're unlikely to find these 7500 series headphones in consumer stores and sites, They're sold mainly towards the professional market segment. They don't look hip enough for the kiddies and they don't feature migraine-inducing bass boost.

Here they are on the Sony site http://bssc.sel.sony.com/Professiona...lInfo?id=52568 they are considered Pro, so you won't find them on the consumer site or even most consumer stores.

You'll find them at this Sony site http://bssc.sel.sony.com/Professiona...sp=79&id=52568 and just about any pro audio supplier.

Woops, looks like you beat me to it Jeff.

I'm using the Beyerdynamic DT 231 with my XM2.

Beyerdynamic headphones are used worldwide in radio and television industry (and recording studios), especially the DT 100 is a famous one.

This is a PDF brochure with details on the DT 231:

OK, here's a field report...
this week I taped a concert at the Hard Rock Hotel (and yes the music was HARD rock!) using the Sony 7506 cans. These phones sound great in any situation, and I found them to be very helpful in this environment. I was standing directly downstage in the press pit, and the Sonys gave me a confidence check that the loud music was not overloading my audio section...plus they gave my tired old rock'n'roll ears the added benefit of protection from the brutal SPL levels at short range. :-)

As Jeff and Ed and Ken pointed out, they are not consumer products, so you can forget about waltzing into your local Circuit City or Best Buy and ilk...I never waste my time with these places, cuz they don't sell what we use. Got mine at Full Compass, B&H also have them, as do Markertek and a whole host of other pro audio suppliers.

They work great my my XL1, my GL1 and my editing kit. I love'em!

I have the Sony MDR-V600's which are discussed above. They're available at electronics superstores like Best Buy and Circuit City for $100. I really like them, and the specs appear to match the 7506. There may be some factors in their construction which would make the 7506's better... looking at the picture they appear similar but not quite identical.

All things being equal I imagine it's best to order the 7506's, but as usual I decided to make my purchase at the last minute and just went with what I could get locally...

Has anyone had experience with the Sony MDR-7502 cans? B&H has them for $44.95. I was wondering if they still have the same protection against ambient noise, or even "hard rock"?

Yeah, Boyd, I know the "fun" of emergency buying...not that I usually choose it! On the road in a strange town, something breaks or gets lost (or I forgot to bring it) and I wander around in the rent-a-car praying to find a Best Buy, Staples, Home Depot or any place where there's a prayer of finding anything that is remotely possible to work. Other than that, I usually just call B&H or one of the aforementioned other pro gear shops and they send it out the same day, and I have it in a day or two.
