Sony MDR-7506 closed-back headphones are trusted in studios worldwide for accuracy and clarity. Built around premium 40 mm drivers, the MDR-7506 reproduces tight, controlled bass and keeps the frequency response flat. These are serious reference headphones for monitoring tracks at high definition. As befits a professional studio headphone, they fit very comfortably and isolate well from outside noise. They’re also surprisingly affordable for pro-grade equipment. Guitar Center counts the MDR-7506 among our go-to recommendations for engineers and producers.

Sony MDR-7506 Professional Closed-Back Headphones Main Features

  • 40 mm drivers for accurate sound at high volumes
  • Flat frequency response from 10Hz to 20kHz
  • Folding design, coiled cable, gold-plated connectors for 1/4″ and 1/8”

Premium Drivers for Serious Monitoring

There’s a reason Sony MDR-7506 headphones appear on the ears of world-renowned artists every day. With premium Sony 40 mm drivers, they reproduce sound at high volume without distortion. That means punchy bass that doesn’t overwhelm, clear highs and most of all, incredible fidelity to what’s actually in the track.

Honest Reproduction at Every Frequency

It’s easy to recognize the MDR-7506, not least because of the words “studio monitor” printed on the headband. The title is fitting. These are not consumer headphones. With a flat frequency response from 10Hz to 20kHz, these reference monitors put accuracy first. If something sounds muddled, the engineer can trust that it’s the track itself, not the headphones. And when the mix is dialed in perfectly, they know it’s not the MDR-7506 giving it a boost. That’s what these cans are all about: honesty.

Thoughtful Touches From Years of Experience

Studio production has lots of pain points. Hours at the console can put strain on the neck and back. Coiling cables can become a full-time job. Components decay and rust from constant use. Beyond the exceptional sound, Sony has designed the MDR-7506 to address those issues. These headphones are lightweight, with soft ear cushions to keep engineers comfortable over long mixing sessions. The cable is coiled, making it easy to keep out of the way while still stretching when needed. The connectors (1/8” and 1/4”) are gold-plated to prevent corrosion. The entire frame folds into a small case or bag. And with the appealing price, buying a few for the studio may not be so eye-watering.
