Ducky Donald I purchased a pair of these years ago, and the new ones perform just as the old ones did... stellar. I am hoping these do not suffer the same fate as those ones I had 25 years ago for radio broadcasting... vinyl deterioration on the ear muffs.

Audio Doctor We recently purchased Several more MDR-7502 headphones for our company. We use them for our professional interpreters while interpreting for conventions. Most all the interpreters I've personally worked with are VERY picky about sound quality. We originally had several larger, more expensive headphones, but most of the interpreters prefer these smaller, lighter weight headphones which still have excellent sound quality. We have tried MANY different types of headphones over the years and have chosen these above all others for quite a few years now.

AlrightOk Use them for my NYC commute via an iPhone and occasionally to monitor with an H2 mic. For music, you may have to turn them up to get decent bass and although they're closed-ear, can cause sound to leak out quite a bit (this could cause you to bother your fellow straphangers and risk being labeled as "that guy").



Very comfortable but they don't fold up. Cord feels durable. I have small ears that barely stick out from my head and these phones don't clamp onto my skull. I wouldn't say that I could dance around wearing them but they stay on firmly enough navigating the subways of NYC.

NewChannelMedia Had these from new for two months with very little use thanks to other pairs of headphones. Pull these out of my bag, adjust the earcups, and, oh, one of them has come off in my hand. Spend an hour playing with tiny, flimsy metal clips and bits of cheap, click in place plastic , and eventually figure that my time is more valuable. Another piece of Sony equipment in the trash.



Really cheap and nasty construction - you get what you pay for.

EricJC I bought this recently so I could plug it into my HVR-V1U camera while shooting a live performance. Audio quality is excellent while doing a good job at cancelling outside noise. One caveat: I wish these headphones could fold up thus making them easier to pack in cases, etc, with other gear.

Frankentron 5000 I received the Sony MDR-7502 phones as a free gift for purchasing a digital multi-track unit. As they say, you get what you pay for... at least in sound quality.



The phones are nicely constucted, fairly comfortable, and offer decent, clear sound. However, most of the audio range is in the upper register. Bass response is "nasal" and does not give an accurate representation of the audio source, particularly if you are a studio professional. These may be fine for brief reference or engineer talk-back, but are not worth any money you would pay.

Al I used these headphones with a prosumer camera and azden mic for an indie film production. The product was not comfortable, but more importantly, randomly fizzed with poor quality feedback. I tested the other equipment and it was indeed the headphones. Cheap. This is a harsh criticism, but I bought them based on too many good reviews.



Near the end of the shoot, I stopped wearing them and ruined a scene because I could no longer pay attention to quality.

Jeff I bought a pair of these and they broke right above the ear. The piece that slides back and forth to adjust the size for your head broke within 6 months. I really liked the sound quality of them, so I ordered another pair, and within 4 months, they broke in the same place. While the sound quality is much better then your average $50 headphones, Id only buy these if you will use them in post-production, and not in a rougher production environment, because they are built pretty cheap.

Michael, Director I purchased these to replace my old MDR-V150s. A perfect upgrade.



The size of the ear pieces and overall design is really nice. They are well constructed to last, and are a staple for monitoring sound on any film set or small post suite.



They also sound great!
