Sony MDR 7506 vs. Sennheiser PC 363D
The Sony headsets are well known for accurate sound reproduction (they are a favorite headphone among audio engineers). The sound they make is crisp and to my ear, the upper frequencies are emphasized. In fact, so much so that after a few hours of listening, my ears show signs of fatigue. Nonetheless, if my goal was to date any recording in my collection this is the set of earphones I would choose. The Sony headphones are a closed system designed to shelter the ear from outside sound. The earmuffs are not large enough to surround my ear consequently they press my ear rings uncomfortably. The Sony headphones are about one third the cost of the Sennheiser headset.
The Sennheiser headset makes a much more lush sound. By comparison, the base is much stronger but not so strong as to cover up the other sounds. The high frequencies are there but not emphasized like they are in the Sony pair. There are enough high frequencies to make subtle differences in timbre clear, for example there is no problem telling the difference between an oboe and in English horn. The Sennheiser headset is an open system. While wearing them I can still hear sounds in the room so if the phone rings I know to answer it. The earmuffs are large and my entire ear fits inside including the three studs I wear in my ear. These are so comfortable I can literally wear them for hours. I've been listening to music with this headset for three weeks, many hours a day and I love the sound. Even after six or seven hours with them on I have no ear fatigue!
It's a very high-quality very solidly built microphone which made good friends with the Dragon almost instantly. The number of misrecognized words dropped noticeably with this microphone. The headset as a whole has some weight to it and is very solidly built. When I adjust the placement for the microphone it really stays there.
I am not using the USB adapter and software because the soundcard of my computer is really top grade. When listening to a surroundsound source the headphones sound as realistic as headphones can (there is definitely a sense of in front of you and behind you).
I did splurge and picked up the Sennheiser HH 10 Headphone Holder which has been really helpful saving me much surface area around my work area. It also makes the headset easier for my spouse to reach when he's putting these on my head. I realize it's not a problem that most of you will have, but I can't put them on myself, somebody has to help me get them on and these are solid enough that that wasn't a ridiculously difficult task for my spouse.
All and all I'm extremely pleased with the Sennheiser PC 363D headset. The sound is splendid and the microphone accurate.
But now I have finally purchased the 363d's and MY GOD are they stunning! The build quality like most have issues with didn't bother me. Straight out of the box to me the quality was well built and flexible. Sure they seem a little cheap in the price tag but they are built far better than Bose. After getting it all setup they got to be the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn aside from the ATH-M50's. I wear glasses and I usually put my glasses above and on the cushion rather than wearing them with the headphones on and inside the cushion. But these I had no problem with the cans being worn on the glasses. The Large cushions also cover my entire ears! You can hear everything when wearing these and I honestly prefer this. The sound stage is widen and the clarity is unmatched. Once you play a game though with sound going through them I can hardly hear anything outside my room or inside my room other than my own voice. Which is also nice because I know exactly how I sound while speaking. The volume knob on the side is nice but I tend not to mess with these because of possible shorts of it in the future. So I put electrical tape on it since it is black and goes with the headphones so it is hardly noticeable, I leave the knob all the way up to so that I can get the full clarity of sound from them. If you have a mute button or volume controls on the keyboard then there is no point in needing one on a pair of headphones as well.
The mic is gorgeous and well constructed! Every pair of headphones I've ever used never had a clear enough mic worth using. So for years I've always just used my webcam as my mic which was an 80 dollar Logitech webcam and gets me by sounding clear. But the mic on this I have to say is far superior to my webcam mic which is an excellent mic. The boom feature is a really nice option as well. The clarity of the voice is crisp and clear and never muffled, I've tried growling into it like a metal head doing voices like batman and the raccoon from D*ck figures as well as Kermit and many others. It does an amazing job in picking up the voice without any distortion at all. Has to be positioned correctly though to achieve this and not right by your mouth. More like underneath your chin or close to it. Now as far as sound goes..... WOW!
The 7.1 is amazing and notice hardly any difference between 7.1 and 2 channel. Highs are crisp and pleasant, Mediums are also crisp and pleasant, and lows are crisp and pleasant without being to deep or dramatic like the Krakens are. I feel like I can hear and listen to a game the way it was meant to be heard! Music as well. When comparing music to the ATH-M50's Audio Technicas I would have to say the ATH-M50's are better but they are also studio headphones designed around music, But the 363d's hold their own in this department. Where when comparing the ATH-M50's and the Krakens I have been using and every other pair of headphones I've tested/used in the gaming department vs the 363d's. The 363d's blow everything out of the water! There is no comparison 363d's win hands down! Give them about 2 hours and you'll notice how everything sounds seems like that is how the game is suppose to sound. I play lots of Quake Live where foot steps and weapon sounds are very very important and I can pick up all of it and can hear further because of it since the sound stage is vastly bigger. I hear things through walls and far away that I have never heard before or thought could be heard. So I am always on my toes now and aware of everything absolutely everything around me. Goes the same for CS:GO! I can hear further and pickup footsteps through walls. It's almost as if you are wall hacking with your ears! pretty insane.
In conclusion the price tag was a steal compared to its regular price tag and was soo soooo worth the price I'm glad I bit the bullet and bought. I was tired of the Krakens and the small sound stage of the ATH-M50's and wanted these for so long but never wanted to pay the price. Guess all good things come to those who wait. If you have the money don't hesitate give it a go you won't be disappointed. I'm some what of an audiophile who loves great sound but also isn't picky about it if I can make it work for my needs. These are the best pair of cans I've ever bought and now Audio Technicas & Sennheiser are my top companies for quality sound. I do want to purchase a dedicated sound card though to see if I can possibly get slightly better sound out of them using 7.1's virtual surround on the actual card itself. But the usb 7.1 dac it comes with will do for now and is very much close to perfect. No loss of sound quality noticeable that I've tested and are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn with the best Headset mic I've ever tested/used with an open acoustic design for pitch perfect clarity with a bigger sound stage and finally the closest software to emulate almost true 7.1 surround sound. Was worth every penny I saved and spent on these gorgeous pair of cans for GAMING!!!!.
Quite a long review but if you do read this hopefully I helped a little in your decision of what headphones are worth purchasing. There aren't nearly enough reviews of these headphones so I figure I make the number grow a little bit more since they are truly a remarkable pair of cans. I was contemplating on going with the Hyper-X Cloud II because of price and the many great reviews on it. But the price tag drop so much for these and were well worth the extra 50 dollars as opposed to the possible extra 150 - 200 dollars!. There are many headphones on the market like the Hyper and some of the cheaper brands like Sentey GS-4731 7.1 virtual and the rest of their product line up. But I've always had my attention on Sennheiser ever since Audio Technica brought them to my attention since they are both great sound quality experts. Sennheiser also make Pilot Headphones and that always interested me because of all the different sound departments they are intertwined with. This is a great buy and again I've tested/owned at least 15 different headphones for gaming and studio since I growl&scream and love gaming and music. If you have your heart set on these because of the reputation Sennheiser has then these are defiantly worth a buy! and have closed acoustic and open acoustics that aren't 7.1. Different specs etc. Sennheiser for sure knows how to make headphones that meet consumer needs and expectations. <3
