Sony MDR-7520 - Page 65

post #961 of 2344

What headphone should I get if I prefer rich, full mids, deep, tight, well extended hard hitting bass, the Shure 1540's or the Sony 7520?

Absolutely.  I listen to about 90% rap/hip hop...and the M100s I've got just are a bit too much for me.  The 7520 is the perfect amount IMO...it hits low and hard, and just is damn enjoyable.


Your opinion - are the 7520's "low profile" enough like a M100 for portable/exercising/yard work headphone?  I tried the new Sennheiser DJ7's and every box was checked but had too much bass and didn't sound very good.  Still in search of the perfect portable.................

Pictures from headroom, it's Z1000 but the are the same form factor.

^ the all black looks better imo and tons more low pro

The looks of the 7520 are fine, more than fine. Not sure what people are thinking when they compare it to the HP50? I guess not everyone has the same fashion sense.

Yup.  All black looks better.

+1! Looks are not important in the pro audio world - it's the performance that counts, but IMHO the Sony's are easily the best looking of the closed headphones in this price range. The NADS (the head band at least) look weird to me, even when they're not on somebody's head, and when they are...............! ;)

Is there a headphone out there with better/same sound as the 7520's, but only with MORE bass?

I dont want to post on a headphone I havent heard but I have been looking a lot into the pandora VI and asking a lot and it has become a goal of mine and I have gotten quite a few recommendations for it.

Just curious.....are you allergic to iems?

 

If so I can understand but yard work with an over the ear?  I would be pretty uncomfortable using my Sonys in the yard and the fact that they would probably get pretty darn hot quickly.

 

But if you can't stand to use an iem, I can understand.

I think the reason you are not getting much response is that I am not sure I would call the 7520s rich or full in the mids in the sense that most of us know.  Nor would I call them hard hitting in the bass.  When I think of full and rich mids I think Shure 840 and LCD 2 or Mad Dogs.  When I see words like well extended, hard hitting bass I think Fostex TH900s.  Have not heard the 1540s.

How would you call their mids, bass and treble than?

post #974 of 2344

I think I would call the mids clean, clear and forward and slightly more present than rich or full like the examples I mentioned.  Though at the same time compared to the Focal Pros they are not as forward nor as full in the vocal range as those cans.  

 

As for the bass,, I would say the Sonys are ever so slightly warm in the bass with good extension but without an emphasis on sub bass like the Fostex.  Bass is above average in dynamics and punch but some cans like the Focals can sound a bit punchier in the upper bass.  

 

I find the Sonys to be not quite as extended in the low end as LCD-3s or the Fostex 900s but highly musical and very well balanced with the rest of the spectrum.  Really they are a very good performer in the bass.

The vocal pro is 200 euro's over here while the 7520's are 400 euro's. Which is the better one at the price?
