Sony MDR-7520 - Page 60

post #886 of 2340

Assuming you want closed circumaural for your girlfriend, I think all of these would fit your budget and do well with electronic music.  Sony MDR-1, Ultimate Ears UE-6000 and Shure 840.

 

and all were on Tyl's Wall of Fame at some point

need your help here..

 

I'm planning to make a present to my GF.

I Own and she "knows" and love the sound and comfort of The "7520" . o(°;°)0

But i can't afford unfortunately a second pair at this price range.. plus we can't order it in Europe now...

So i was thinking on something less flat-pro ( 200-300$ ), with a tight pleasing extended low sub range.. to listening "Electronic Music"

May be something sexy like the V-Moda crossfade 100 ..( 240€ ) ?

What do you say...?

 

Any input really appreciated..! I'm short on time :-( 

 

I won a crossfade LP, recently (together with a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 -- too bad I'm not on Verizon :o). Since it's a basshead pair of headphones, I haven't even opened the box. If you want them for a good discount, let me know.

Thanks for the offer.. Still digging...

Order it from B&H Photo in the States. Very good prices and you can pay the import tax via them on their web site to save hassle. Very fast shipping from them as well.


+1 on both suggestions

 

(with a wink of course on the choice of headphones -

though I think they're superb and would make a fine gift -

but not with respect to B&H - one of the top

merchants around, without exaggeration.)

I notice that when I connect devices to this headphone unit, my AV receiver doesn't display HD audio tracks on it like True HD etc... Doesn't this unit pass it through? :)

Nothing beats a Vmoda m100 for sexy & sturdy on a woman..
The Sony 1r is also nice pick.

I've had my 7520's for a few weeks now and out of all of the headphones I own (T1, MA900, X1, DBA-02, ER4P, HP100) these are getting the most ear time.  I also briefly owned the P7s and the HP50s and have since returned both of those.  I thought the P7s were way over-hyped.  They did not sound refined to me at all.  The HP50s were ok, but were a bit boomy in the bass to me and lacked some detail.  

 

The 7520s are just what I was looking for.  They are definitely my favorite closed can right now.  Just using them straight from an iPad Air they sound fantastic.  I love the detailed sound.  I am a detail freak and the fact that I can get this kind of detail without sacrificing somewhere else (mids, bass) is amazing.  The only thing I think they don't excel at is a coherent soundstage.  Don't get me wrong, the angled drivers give me a sense of space but when I used these briefly for gaming it seemed that as I panned sounds jumped from the left channel to the right channel more abruptly as opposed to smoothly panning on my other headphones (most of which are open).

 

Other than that though, I am very happy with the 7520s.

Great impressions! I totallly agree about everything. :beerchug:

I believe that soundstage is more of a factor of the recording. Much of it depends on the recording techniques being used, specially for acoustical recordings. If I have a wonderful recording but it is too dry sounding I rather use my J.River processing to increase the soundstage. I rather not be chasing after some headphones for the soundstage. Details or clear sound sound is much more important to me than soundstage when evaluating headphones. 

post #899 of 2340

I honestly don't care about soundstaging either, but I have to admit these are a little "claustrophobic" sounding. So if staging is even a little important for you, then these probably won't be a great experience. Personally, I have no issues with the soundstaging of the 7520, but would put that caveat out there for people just in case.

Virtually no games use HRTF at all, so unless you have something downmixing multichannel audio for headphone use, hard panning from left to right is to be expected. I wonder if it's an indicator of how good the channel separation is on the various headphones.
