just got a new pair of Sony MDR 7506 Headphones on a tip from another Head-Fi Head. Wow are these things detailed. Maybea bit too much bass for me, but I'm listening on an unamplified Panasonic CT470 and it has plenty gain to drive these to nice sound levels. I don't know why, but I like these a bit better than the AKG 501's. Straight into the headphone input to my Apt Holman preamp sounds very even and smooth. These cans fit tighter than either the Sennhiesiers or the AKG 501's, so maybe they will become a bit uncomfortable over time, but I really like what I am hearing for $100 brand new.....the folding feature is also quite nice. Thumbs up and up!
