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

 

The Sony MDR–7506 are still the best $150 over-ear headphones for the second year running, and they're (currently) less than $90. After panel testing them against 16 top headphones, every panelist ranked them number one thanks to their even response...

If you are looking to get an introduction to high-end sound, and want to do it without breaking the bank, the Sony MDR-7506 are the best bet. Great reviews, great sound, an impressive track record, and a great price? No wonder they’re our two-time...

"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.

Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphone

 

I first invested in my pair of Sony 7506's with a package of 2 turntables and a mixer all 5 years ago. After almost spending $200 on a high end pair of Sony's at the time, someone at the local music store told me to get a pair of 7506's instead. I've...

Crystal clear sound, very bendable and flexible for on the fly mixing in clubs, studios, and various parties

The padding around the headphones collecting moisture and seperating

Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphone

 

I don't have the greatest sound card, Audigy 2 ZS, so I'm probably holding back the SQ. It is very flexible will fit very large domes! Has a really long coiled cord I can walk any where in my 12x13 room from my desk in a corner. Doesn't completely seal...

D DOESN'T REST ON YOUR EAR :D! Made with quality parts = durability! Great SQ! Great over value

Going on three years just minor tears in the thin covering around the ear cup due to wear and tear
