Sony MDR-7506 - Page 6

post #76 of 80

Dear all,

 

I recently bought an Sony MDR 7506. A friend of mine has one and I’ve listened to it a few times and really liked it.

 

Now after listening to it for a few days I have my doubts about the bass. It’s not as deep and dominant as I thought it would be. I compared it to my sennheiser hd 201 and that one has a real dominant bass.

 

Is there a way to make the bass louder or more dominant? I only use the headphone on my iPod. There are pre-sets in EQ on the iPod and I put the bass as loud as possible and the treble as soft as possible.

Still it is not good enough. :-(

 

Does anyone has any advice for me? Or is there no way to make the bass more dominant?

 

Cheers!

the Sony is definitely not as bassy headphone....But, it can get much better bass on a proper home receiver, or headphone amp with bass boost. It will never reach XB500/XB700 type of bass.

I just love the sound signature of the sony 7506. I have used koss, audio technica m50x, akg q701, sennheiser hd 558 and beyerdinamics cop. But I prefer the sony for my go to headphones for music; movies and video games. I use these headphones with the astro mixamp and the sound for games is awsome. Very satisfying headphone in all respects, a must buy great value for the money. 5/5

Picked up a pair this week after seeing them at Guitar Center, I figured I'd check them out, no intention of replacing the B&W P7, just wanted to see how these well regarded cans are. I own Grado SR80i and the Shure SRH440, so I wanted to see how they were compared to some other good $99 models.  I like what I've heard so far, they are pretty neutral overall.  I think they will replace the Shure for guitar playing on iOS apps. After some break-in I have to say I'm pretty impressed! I think they will be my knock around back-pack headphones.  Great value for $99!

They are a very durable pair of cans. One of my very good friends had a dad in the music industry with a pair of v6's, and he still has the same pair his dad used (they are at least 20 years old now, and still in perfect working order)

Amazingly durable.
