Sony MDR-7520 - Page 75

post #1111 of 2340
I guess I need to add the perspective that ALL THREE CANS ARE STILL THE BEST in this class of
MID TIER CLOSED CANS!!

So yes they will sound excellent and satisfactory to you I don't doubt it!

MY POINT is that THIER CAN ONLY BE ONE best,
With a second and third place..
So YOU CHOOSE second and third lol.
Sony remain on top of those three FOR ME!!

BUT my Ultrasone ED8 are tops of all portables FOR ME!
:P

I just wanna know if the 7520 is as neutral as people make it out to be, so I keep asking about quantity of various aspects of their sound vs other headphones.  I really want a good set of comfortable, closed mixing/mastering cans.

The focal bass is more airy less impactfull with similar extension.
The Sony bass hits your ears more with transients.
You may find the focal easier on the ear for listening music if you can get used to the clamp. I have smaller head and I can get used to it as I stretched it out a bit.
Overall it is still easily better sound to me over the NAD..
I would rank it second place even tho the NAD is a smoother more closer sound because it seems duller than the two others.
The focal soundstage is nice.
The Sony has less sound stage and seems different in trebles still too much shine for me..
I would be satisfied with either over the NAD.
Sorry NAD owners, it reminds me too much of the Sony 1r (a mids focused can) with bass..
Meaning the NAD focus is on mids.
The spirit focus is on soundstage & details
The Sony focus is on lively large closer sound than focal (which seemed just a bit excessively distant), but the sony a bit brash on upper trebles.

It's almost neutral. I find the bass is north of neutral. I'm on the verge of purchasing another pair, even though the bass is less than optimal, because they are the most comfortable closed headphones I've heard. The bass is of excellent quality just a little too much quantity. I'd happily listen to it for everything except cello/strings which need a little bit more neutrality.

How "small" before you "can't" hear?
Why do you even THINK that "small" is ANY LESS important?!!

Realize the "smallest" things can make the "biggest" things in "perception"..

Like In what the mind will interpret..
The tiniest cues or echo or delay or phase is what your mind uses on elements like "distance",, "placement",, "height",, "size" and "dimension"..

So I see you are in denial, having ALREADY experienced traces of "the matrix" ..
AS you are actually describing "brain burn" here..

You have yet to accept the reality of the ears being the ultimate organic live sound receptor that your mind " can't handle" , so it "filters" the CONSTANT recieving sound... ALL THE TIME.!.!

WANT PROOF.?.
How many times have we been asleep or seen someone asleep to surrounding background noise at any level,
YET we awake when our mind deciphers "our name" being called??

Ah, a fellow CO person :) (just moved here recently).

 

Haven't been listening much lately, and haven't been trying other cans either. But still, everytime I do put them on they still sound very sweet :) So detailed, yet musical. The other day I let my SO listen to them and she was blown away by them. She actually kept wanting to turn up the volume because the music kept sucking her in (had to force her to not turn it up too far, for fear of hearing damage). :)

 

In the end, these are very good cans. You get a lot of bang for your buck. There is nothing really wrong with them, it all comes down to personal preference in terms of sound signature. And yeah, the bass is definitely there, but I don't find it overpowering, and it's very detailed. Perhaps a slight mid-bass hump, but that can easily be EQ'd out if it bothers you.

Third generation CO native here. I've been in the military for 12 years though, so it doesn't even really feel like home anymore. It seems more like California than Colorado when I go back to visit.

I wouldn't know, I moved from Europe to CO. Have been to Florida countless times, but CO feels nothing like Florida. Love the outdoors here though, the Rockies are gorgeous. Just went snow shoeing the other day in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park.

Sony MDR-7520 is now on the front page of Head-Fi as a gift guide feature. It has been discontinued in the EU but has it been discontinued in the US?
