I don't remember if it was already mentioned here, but grizzlybeast compared the MDR7520 and the MT220.

I didn't get into the game early enough to do the 7509, but I do get less creaking on these now that I'm wearing them a little more vertically.

 

The Yamaha's looked great, but the non-detachable cable was a dealbreaker for me. When I found a pair of 7520's for the same price as the Yamaha's, I just spring for them. I'm not regretting them at all. Movies are a treat on these! I get to do some critical listening tomorrow for a classical recording I just did. Really excited to break them in for what they're for!

I really appreciate this post/thread. I think the only thing I'd suggest to change it is the inclusion of prices on the recommended headphones. That way people don't have to "waste" their time Google-ing headphones out of their price range.

Prices can change a lot, though. Between sellers, yes, but even more with time.

Even MSRP would be beneficial in my opinion.

Hm, OK. Though it was supposed to be a "cost no object" list and I do provide links to the official page for each pair of headphones.

I mean I think it's very beneficial to list headphones of all price range that are good for it. It could help people save money or find a gem that they'll love. But I also think it's beneficial to have at least a reference as to how much each pair will cost so someone starting a budget-friendly setup doesn't start looking at headphones that are way out of their budget.

Yeah, but to list all possible studio headphones at different price ranges is not what I was aiming at with this thread. I'd like to list the possible top contenders, regardless of price.

For mixing I use the Sony 7509HD and Denon AH-D7000, I don't prefer the sound from the Sony, but the midrange is very good and the mixes translate well, the Denon is for checking the low-end and also overall checking.

Funny, I could say exactly the same things about the 7509HD and 7520!  If only the 7520 had the midrange of the 7509HD, but I guess there's always a trade off.

So the midrange of the 7509 is a lot more natural than the 7506 then? The 7506 was always sharp and aggressive in the mids in my experience with them.

That's good to know about the 7520, I like to try them sometime, thanks!

If the recording is good, the highs on the 7509HD are the best I ever heard, though they can be very unforgiven with bad or very revealing highs.

I have no longer a 7506 and can not remember the sound that much, though I do remember that they where more bass heavy and definitely not the same detail as the 7509HD.

Okay that's not surprising about the detail. The treble is very rolled off in the upper octave on the 7506 that I had. I had the V6 once as well and they were more colored than the 7506, but the aggressive mids were still there.

Very aggressive. I had the v6....same driver as the 7506....very big peak around 4khz. I found them almost unlistenable with some material. But the timbre of the mids sounds very natural to me....more so than the 7509. Better than either is the dt250....going from memory.
