Sony MDR-7506 Headphones Suck

These Sony headphones are everywhere. I hate them for the following reasons:

– There’s a harsh presence peak in the 3-7k region
– They fail to reveal sound field depth and width
– They fall apart easily
– The cable on each ear cup gets crimped upon folding up the headset
– They fly off of artists heads when “rocking out”
– The plastic ear cup coating deteriorates easily, leaving bits of black film everywhere
– Its coiled cable quickly turns into a rats nest.

On the upside, they only cost around $100.

  1. I agree! I found this post searching for Sony mdr 7506 headphones suck LOL As I was trying to untangle the rats nest, Just like I have to do EVERYTIME I use them. I had to glue the ear pads to the phones on mine because they ALWAYS came off.

    • I agree – terrible, terrible headphones. It’s a shame they’re seen all over radio and television, as propagates the notion of them being a standard.
