I dont know what is going on the prices, but I bought these from Amazon last year for about $65. Google some other sites, like J&R. $300 is incorrect pricing.

v6 and 7506 are IDENTICAL except: gold plating on connector vs nickel plating, model numbers on earcups, warranty handled by Sony professional division on 7506 so possible better customer service. Otherwise IDENTICAL, even the Sony service manual shows identical parts throughout. Hopefully V6 not discontinued or something, accounting for the huge price hike (should be $65-75 shipped for V6). Had my pair since 1992. Awesome! (V600 is a TOTALLY different product - I'd definitely stick with V6/7506)

Yep, due to flooding in Thailand the price went sky-high for about half a year.
Back to normal now, hope they stay that way! :D

I will never go back to the Sony MDR V600s, while the sound is decent they now make them with too thin a cord.The cord on my pair of V600s was so thin that it was pretty much falling apart(after about a year) so I bought the Sony MDR 7506s not only was the cord(of the 7506s) much thicker the sound was much better in my opinion. The V600s don't sound anywhere near as bad as some of the posters on amazon and other sites want you to believe but the 7506s have a more detailed, clear and real sound.

I just bought a pair of V6s last month and I can honestly say they sound even better than the 7506s and are just as comfortable for less money. Yeah Id say the 7506s are a bit flatter but I feel like I actually notice more sounds from the V6s. The V6s give more of an ear candy listening experience but are actually clearer as well.

I think there IS a difference between the Sony MDR V6 and MDR 7506 and it's not just in how they look it's how they feel. Sony MDR 7506s are lighter and a bit more comfortable(not as tight, but still snug). I went for the Sony MDR 7506s even when they were going for a higher price than the V6s because of the comort level ratings.

The MDRV6 is now on sale at Amazon for $70. Time to buy another pair. Spoke too soon, they just raised the price $10.

Hey now they cost less than the Sony MDR 7506s. Im honestly considering buying these now but see no need. I would buy the V6s only if my Sony MDR 7506s quit working. If you're looking for a great pair of headphones and only want one pair I would suggest buy whatever is cheaper. Still love my 7506s though and would probably buy them again if my pair broke. The only thing I'm wondering about is if the newer larger diaphram version sounds exactly the same as the older version because that may be a deal breaker for them if they don't sound as good.

Actually, they are NOT completely identical, at all. The frequency range on the MDR V6 is 5Hz-30Khz. On the MDR 7506, the frequency range is only 10Hz-20Khz. That may not be noticeable in real-life listening situations, I don't know. On paper, though, that seems like a fair amount of difference.
