At last, I can actually reply. Cant start a new thread for some reason. I have been able to quote a post twice. This seems like an appropriate place to ask this question.
My 20yr old V404 broke. This has been my only can:( is that right, I have always just called them phones); except for the ZX100 I bought a Wally-World for 20 bucks a couple weeks ago to fill the void. The ZX100 is sufficent for now but it doesnt sound near as good or are as comfortable as the V404.
I want the V404 sound back, possibly better. I have been leaning toward the V6. It is the same,( V ), series; looks the same;( probably bigger and heavier due to 40mm instead of 30mm drivers+ fitting around the ears, not on top. I dont know how much the 404 was since it was a used gift, but the price on the V6 seems very reasonable;( $80-$85). Of course there is the 7506 just to confuse the heck out of ya that is only 2 bucks more at B+H Video Pro Audio. Is this a reputable store?[ cant post links]
After reading this entire thread 2 or 3 times am I safe in assuming the new V6/7506are the same phone/ sound the same?
I have read the V6 has a little more bass or is that the older ones? If it is true, I would pick the 6. The gold-plated/nickle plated plug probably doesnt really make any difference, though the end of the plug on the V6 looks beefier. I have read the 7506 has a better warrenty. Is this true? If they really sound the same that could be the deciding factor right there.
Sorry for being so long-winded, but if anyone thinks they can un-confuse me even a little, please do so.
ThankYou + have a goog one.
The reason people say 7506 has better warranty is because V6 is discontinued! They sound the same from my experience, and you will be happy with either of them. I think 7506 would be easier/cheaper to find.
