Bottom Line

Having been around since 1991, the Sony is a popular choice for people who want headphones for critical listening.

The Sony MDR-7506 over-ear headphones have received positive reviews for their natural sound and their flat frequency response that, compact and foldable design, comfort and their price. However, some pointed out that the vinyl ear cushion covers flake after a while and others thought that they feel too fragile. The Sony MDR-7506 is a great choice for audiophiles since they have a fairly flat frequency response, but they feel flimsy and the (replaceable) ear cushion covers may flake after a while.

    They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100.
