You don't have to spend a lot to get great headphones. We tested six full-size models that each cost less than $100 (one of them significantly less), and we came away impressed by what you can get.

Sony MDR-7506 headphones review: Around since 1991 and still great

 

Introduced way back in 1991, the Sony MDR-7506 has long been a favorite headphone of recording engineers and other sound professionals. The origins of its design date even further back, since the MDR-7506 is, in fact, a refresh of the Sony MDR-V6 that...

Sony's MDR-7506 closed-back, full-size headphones click with all music genres and are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. They sound excellent for their relatively modest price point.

With a coiled, pro-style cable and lack of an inline remote/microphone, some will find the 7506s less mobile-friendly than more modern headphones.

They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100.

Sony MDR 7506

 

While the two headphones have the same design and are very comfortable, they don't sound identical. Both offer very well-balanced sound and excellent clarity for their modest price points -- and both are great overall values. But the V6 makes a little...

The Best $150 Over-Ear Headphones

 

After researching 110 over-ear headphones and conducting three separate listening panels of audio professionals with 15 top contenders, we found the Sony MDR-7506 to be the best pair of over-ear headphones for $150 or less. The MDR-7506 set offers...

If you’re looking for an introduction to studio-level audio, and if you want to get it without breaking the bank, Sony’s MDR-7506 is your best bet. Terrific reviews, great sound, an impressive track record, and a nice price—no wonder this pair reigns...

"Very balanced and flat eq sounding headphones."

 

Well mastered 320 kbps Mp3 and 24-bit Flac files sound amazing. Blu-ray movies sound better than the speaker setup at public movie theaters minus the sound impact to the whole body. I've had mine since 2005 and still sound greats. I just needed to...

Flat eq sound that's hard to find in today's headphones. Very reliable and still sounds superb. Easy to drive and gives high volume without amplification. Sounds phenomenal with Blu-ray + Dolby audio post processing.

Still requires a decent headphone amplifier to hear that awesome tight bass at lowest frequencies. Some poorly mastered CDs and MP3 at 128 kbps sounds ugly with the instruments mashing up during chorus which is clearly caused by compression.

Legendary sound, but only a 90 day warranty

 

Brilliant sound. Despite its old design, the clarity and detail of these headphones never ceases to amaze me. The materials and workmanship are very good, they are lightweight and very comfortable, with soft but durable ear pads. They fold and are...
