Good bass and detailed sound.

I use "closed" circumaural headphones in bed so I can listen without bothering my wife.

The headphones are very well made with an all metal housing. The sound quality is detailed and smooth. Not a hint of upper mid-range spike like the older version. The fit and comfort is first class. I pre-ordered the MDR-Z1000 and I plan on doing a comparison. Stay tuned.

The Sony MDR-7520 Headphones do what they are advertised to do. The sound is clear, crisp and seemingly without any obvious colouration. That's what I want in a headphone. For those who do music production, it's a very good mirror for both tracking and mixing, even though it's a closed, over-the-ear type. Also, their impedance is low enough that you don't need a separate amp to use them. What you record is what you hear. If you don't like what you hear, don't blame the headphones, darlings; make better music.

I thought my MDR-V6 were good until I heard these. At first I did not hear a big difference but then burned them in for over 100 hours a moderate volume and then they really improved on sound-stage and high frequency response. Like most Sony phones, Bass response is great and these are no disappointment being much more tight or precise than the V6. Where they really shine is upper frequency response and instrument separation which is nothing short of phenomenal. I have only heard better from my JH16-Pro IEM but only when they are on the JH-3A amp which is not really a fair comparison.

If you listen to heavy rock, especially heavy metal like I do, then these are the headphones to have. They have excellent clarity and impact at all frequencies. They sound incredible with a headphone amp which I use with these headphones. Build quality is very solid and should last for a very long time. Highly recommended.

The bass on these things is clean and precise. The sound stage is wonderful. I literally use them to reference mixes both live and studio. Not many headphones at this price point can accurately replicate music. It's nice to hear what the engineer intended when listen to a piece of music. I call them truth for my ears :)

These are definitely built for its target audience; audio professionals. I am not an audio professional, but my number one priority from headphones is sound quality, and these deliver spectacularly in that regard. While the soundstage is not quite large (as is with most closed-back headphones), all other aspects of this headphones are spectacular; good frequency response, dynamics, detail, and transparency. They are comfortable and built to last with a standard detatchable cable; I replaced the wieldy coiled cable with a mic cable from V-Moda. In addition, I bought a proprietary case from B&H because I take my headphones everywhere, and I would like to protect my investment. I bought this model refurbished (B-stock) from Audiotopia, and am completely happy with the bargain I got: $250, versus around $400 street price. While they are not consumer headphones-- they are not the most attractive-- the sound quality that they deliver makes me very happy. If you are looking for a quality closed-back headphone at this price range, look no further.

FOR THOSE WITH BIG HEADS: I have a big head. There are few headphones that fit me, never mind comfortable. These headphones are comfortable. If you have a big head, this headphone is for you.

provides great and efficient sound which is relatively flat across the spectrum. build quality is very good with my only complaint being they should have put an extra quarter inch of memory foes in the ear pads to help hold the drivers away from touching your ears. can become uncomfortable after some time.

I'm not an audiophile and not a music producer or sound engineer, but I must say, the Sony MDR-7520 headphones is one of the better headphones I've listened with in a long time. What are my benchmarks or qualifications? To be honest, although I owned a lot of headphones through the years, I've yet to try headphones from beyerdynamic and I have some experience with Bowers & Wilkins, Sennheisers, Beats Pro (quick note: super bass heavy and very muddy!) and any other headphones within the 7520's price range. That being said, I own headphones from Audio Technica, Grado, AKG and a bunch of Sony headphones that eventually turned me off from the brand in the past decade (explanation later).

Prior to these headphones, I love my Grado SR-225 for its analytical and sound precision but alas I can't wear them outside since they're an open-air type headphones. I liked my Audio Technica ATH-M50, and even though they're very pleasing and not harsh, the sound it emits doesn't excite me; it was a bit too vanilla, very middle of the road. So, I took a leap on these headphones based on a scant few recommendations from Head-Fi and Amazon, and I'm very glad that I did. Pardon the cliche, but the 7520 blew me away.

I've been listening with these cans for about a week now and I'm still surprised at how clear and detailed the sound that these headphones emit. I've thrown every song from every genre that I own and the 7520 handles them all with ease and it's never fatiguing to listen with despite producing clarity in the high treble sections and bass that is tight and just warm enough but doesn't make your head cave in. My other headphones couldn't match what the 7520 can do.
