They work great with electronic percussion.
Gerardo5491, 16.07.2020
I wanted to get headphones for electronic drums, I read a lot of reviews and the two headphones that were mentioned the most were the Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 ohms) and the Sony MDR7506.
Now why I decided to buy the Sony, because of the cable length! which it is extremely important when playing an instrument, so it won't disturb me on the snare drum, or I can pass the cable around and below the piano, etc.
So in this case I chose the Sony over the Beyerdynamic with short cable.
Now, I ordered the Sony MDR7506 and two more headphones who had great reviews, the TDJ 1000 and Superlux HD330.
The price difference is huge! Yet I can tell you those two last can really stand a battle against headphones with higher price.
I compared those three with a MacBook Pro, a Piano Roland FA08 and electronic percussion Roland Octapad.
The results.
Cable length and flexibility, Sony wins!
Bass or Low Frequency - TDJ1000 has very deep bass but sounds a bit like inside a box, if you are a bass lover your might feel like you would like your Sony MDR7506 to have a bit more bass, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they have no bass, they do, just not super boom. And at the end, what is good about it, it is good that the Sony offers a loyal reproduction of the original recording without enhancing or creating a fictitious extra bass.
And I questioned myself, if they are not the most powerful in bass then why many people advice them for electronic drums?
After I tried again and again these 3 headphones, I arrived to the conclusion that with the TDJ1000 and the Superlux HD330 there seemed to be a little bit of a problem managing all the music pressure sent by the instrument, I understood that the Sony MDR7506 have enough of what it takes to manage to transmit on time the music pressure sent by the instrument, in this case electronic percussion, the Sony are performing very natural and you will feel like you can hear every instrument, not only low frequencies but also high, while with the other two headphones seems like you miss something when you play fast on the snare drum.
To be honest, listening music in computer or playing in the piano Roland FA08 the comparison was though, but there was a clear difference when testing the headphones on the Roland Octapad.
So I chose as best the Sony MDR7506, they can handle it all.
A few more words about the bass on the Sony headphones, you won't feel the type of boom that sometimes might feel cheap and like inside a box, but instead you will feel the bass in the aspect that you feel the pressure of music bouncing the headphone magnets.
In fact, if you are in low budget and the cable length is not a problem, then the best are Superlux HD330 for around twenty something Euros, amazing price. If you are only about bass and nothing else matters to you, then the TDJ1000 for less than 20 euros. If you are gonna use professional instruments, electronic drums, both high and low frequencies matter, cable length matter for confort, you want a very loyal reproduction of the music you are playing, then the Sony MDR7506.
They come with a jack adapter on screw type which is great.
A headphones bag.
Cons - feels like the ear pads material won't last so long, feels slim, and I found out that the ear pads replacements cost around 20 euros each one, so on two of them that makes 40 euros which it is 50% the price of the headphones, this is simply stupid by Sony.
I lay it down, you play it out. Make your choice ))

lIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE ..HEAVYWEIGHT SOUND
colinrobot, 05.08.2020
I bought these after buying a pair of Audio Technica M40X . Both were for use as home studio monitoring and field recording with a Zoom H4n Pro (Black) . I found the ATM40X Very heavy, hurt my ears and had quite a lot of bass. So i bought the Sony MDR-7506 and found them more pleasing to the ear and a lot lighter on the ears physically and way more comfortable.
That said the structure is a little feeble and the small wires protruding either side are an accident waiting to happen. The coiled cable is great for getting across the room but the weight and the fact it's not detachable isn't great.
All in all i'm happy with them they sound great especially in use with Sonarworks Reference Software . They work really well with the H4n Pro shame the cable is so long in that respect but you can always coil it up in your pocket while searching for sounds in the field.
If your looking for studio or field recording Cans on a budget these are for you and you can't go wrong with that price tag!!

I bought these to use for playing the guitar without waking the entire house, and for that purpose the work very well, although I do most of the time tend to just play completely unplugged if I don't want to did disturb anyone.

The sound of these is crisp and clear and they do deserve the label of studio monitors as the sound is indeed very flat and neutral.

They are fairly light on the head and breathe fairly well, but they're far from the most comfortable headphones I've used, but then again I'm comparing them to headphones that cost four times as much, and that's not really fair.

The only real complaint I have is the weight of the cable, because it's really quite hefty and it feels like it pulls the headphones down when you wear them, unless you have the cable resting on a table or something.

I also noticed that when I hooked them up to my headphone amp there is a very audible and rather distracting hiss, which I assume has to do with the impedance of the headphones as that's not present at any other time, and thus isn't really and issue with the headphones themselves, just something to keep in mind.

All in all though, for the price they are definitely good headphones that appear to be of good quality and they seem like they might last a long time, although they haven't been in daily use and as such I can't really comment on durability, but they don't feel flimsy at all.
