Got my Sony MDR-V7

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I just got a set of V-7's on e-bay. I looked through the archives here and Google, but I could not find much about them. They sound similar to the V-6's, but seem smoother overall and less strident. Anyone have a link with tech data?

Never heard of them... can you post a picture?

Maybe the MDR-V7 is to MDR 7509
as MDR-V6 is to MDR 7506?

Notorious P.I.G. you're talking about the Sony V700 but Mike is looking for the V7's which are like the V6's.

The V7 is technically and physically identical to the MDR-CD900ST... There should be minimal difference between the V7 and V6 in terms of sound as some older head-fi threads pointed out... might wanna do a thread dig on this one...

LOL, oh man, that ranks up there with the funnier moments of head-fi. Thanks for the luagh Tim.


Mike,

How are you enjoying the new cans? I have never even heard of the v7, but if they're a step above the v6 they must be good. How do you find the bass on them? Deep and v6-like, or more anemic?

I just got them yesterday, and I sold my V6's a few weeks ago. The V7 seems overall quite similar to the V6, but without the screechy high end. The low end may be a bit slower, but seems somewhat less bloated. The sound resembles the V6 without the most obvious flaws, but it is not as fast as the eggo D77, not even close. The bass is a bit fuller and flabbier than the D77, and the sensitivity is pretty good. I can use these phones on my MZ-R50 with no problem. Isolation is, of course, better than the eggo D77.

On a scale of 1 to 10:

MDR-CD999 -- 5.0
MDR-V6 -- 4.5
MDR-V7 -- 5.5--6.0
MDR-D77 -- 7
MDR-CD1000 -- 7.5
Stax Lambda Normal/SRD-7 -- 9.5

Thanks for the time taken for that most helpful reply Mike. Sounds like it is a viable solution for a somewhat cheap can that sounds good. I'll keep an eye out to see if one pops up on the radar anytime soon.

They're kinda rare, aren't they?
post #13 of 42
If you can't find any info on them here, they are most likely a rare set of cans.
post #14 of 42
I think it's more the fact that most of the people who bought them don't use them for personal use and don't frequent electronics forums.
post #15 of 42
Actually, they're very rare... searching on any shopping engine would likely turn out no results at all for the MDR-V7. They were probably discontinued quite a while ago.
