MDR-7520 Studio Headphones
As Sony’s highest level of professional
headphone, the 7520 is designed for critical
listening applications. These headphones
utilize ultra wideband 50mm HD driver units
incorporating liquid crystal polymer film
diaphragms. That’s why the listener gets
high power handling capability with great durability and
unparalleled sound quality. The 7520 employs newly developed
noise isolation earpads with a pliable cushion material that
conforms to the natural shape of the ear, providing comfort
and high acoustic isolation. This model has a lightweight
magnesium alloy housing to decrease weight and increase
comfort, reduce fatigue, and help prevent unnecessary
vibration, plus a detachable cable.
 
 
MDR-7510 Studio Headphones
An excellent choice for both reference
monitoring and audio mixing applications,
the 7510 extends the MDR-7500 line with a
new fixed design of rugged construction.
With 50mm drivers utilizing PET (Polyethylene
Terephthalate) diaphragms, these
headphones provide a wide frequency response, broad
dynamic range, and accurate sound reproduction. The 7510
offers high power handling capability and uses neodymium
magnets and OFC (oxygen-free copper) voice coils. Noise
isolation earpads with pliable cushion material conform to
the natural shape of the ear and provide comfort and
acoustic isolation.

All this talk :smile:

Put on your 7520's and try James Taylor - Hourglass 24bit 88Khz SACD for some clarity and bass resolution.

 

Okay, back to the tech talk......

But keep in mind that the Z1000 and the 7520 are quite different,

especially in the bass.

I wrote a brief comparison of the two about a month ago, I think it's in this
thread.  To my ears, the Sony's are more detailed, and better
in other ways as well.  But more expensive.

I've not heard a closed headphone as good as the HP50's at their
price point, though, and that includes a whole bunch including the Sony 1R's,
Senn Momentum's - there's a list in my Profile.

In fact, I'll likely be putting up the HP50's for sale very soon and checking
out the Focal Spirit Pro's.
I have decided to burn the NAD HP50 in my dresser drawer for a week as I suspect the differences I am missing are due to this.

By then my spirit pro will be in as well..
To improperly test them fresh out the box as well..! Lol

Burn in doesn't exist with headphones and if there are any changes they are very small. How you hear them on first impressions is usually how they sound before you have gotten used to the sound signature.

The human ear is greater than any measuring tool..
It is the mind that filters out what you perceive.
Your non belief stifles and places limitationss on what your hearing..

Too bad for you..

Also, once you believe,
The 2 mental hurdles to overcome are:
Brain burn
and
Placebo
