Headphones I've tried include the following with my totally subjective sound rating on 10 point scale. YMMV.
Audio Technica ATH-M50X - highs a little subdued for my liking - 7
Beats Studio 2 Wireless - Subdued highs, some mid bass emphasis but not overpowering. 6
Bose QC25 - A little weak on bass and weak on highs, best ANC. 7
Bose QC35 - Can be a little bassy, especially at low volume. Bright highs. Best ANC. 9
JBL - EVEREST 700 - Way too bassy. 5.
JBL - Everest Elite 700 - Much better than non-Elite, 7
OPPO PM-3 - Excellent, expensive. 10
Sennheiser 202 - yuck. Too bassy, no highs, but cheap. 4
Sennheiser 280 - well balanced. 8
Sennheiser Momentum M2 - Close to perfection. 9.5
Sennheiser PXC-550 - wireless noise cancelling. These are excellent. 9
Sony - MDRXB950BT/B - Extra bass says it all. 4
Sony 7506 - Perfection 10
Out of all that I've tried the Sony 7506 are closest to perfection, to live performance. They are not bass heavy at all but can produce comfortable solid bass down to quite low frequencies. Tonal balance leans towards the upper mids and highs. Bright but not harsh. You end up hearing subtle sounds in the music that is missing with other headphones. Those who want more bass or don't want bright highs won't like these. But for my listening taste this matches perfectly.
They are also very comfortable. Many of the headphones listed above are not as comfortable. Either tight band or thin band or ear cups that aren't big or deep enough. These headphones are great. Biggest disadvantage vs. many that I've tried recently is that these are wired... with a long heavy cord easy to get caught on things. I was looking for a wireless headphone. But ultimately I couldn't find one at a reasonable price that sounded anywhere near as good as these. Next closest was the Sennheiser PXC-550, but at $400, wireless wasn't worth an extra $320. I also found that there were times I didn't want noise cancellation. Too bad Sony doesn't make a wireless headphone with anywhere near this sound.
Best of all, these are by far the cheapest of the decent sounding headphones I've listened to. The headphones in this list range in prices from $20 to $450.
Highly recommend the Sony 7506... if you like this sort of sound signature.
Listening to a live performance of a pipe organ, one is impressed by the "airiness" that only an organ has. It has to do with the sound being produced by wind and by the acoustics of the building in which it is housed. These headphones do an excellent job or reproducing that as well. I don't get that feeling of having something plugged in my ear or even listening to headphones. That was an unexpected bonus.
I had tried to get by with headphones in the $30-40 range but the learned the hard way that he who buys cheap, buys again. I am aware of the fragile leather ear cups from other reviews, so I will treat these gently because these are so comfortable.
Read through the reviews in this page to know these monitor headphones are heavily used by virtually anyone that knows even a bit of music, from music enthusiasts to great names studios. The phones themselves are of simple design, without unnecessary frills, but the focus is sound quality, one thing that Sony dominates. The +20 years the 7506 are in the market prove this quality
The audio itself is clear and well-balanced, the phone works well on any cellphone or portable player and there is no need of an amplifier (They are very loud), the bass end is a little low compared to other headphones available on the market, but with a small tweak on any equalizer or bass boost can fully reproduce a subwoofer without quality loss.
The lightweight but resistant structure makes possible wearing the phones for hours without hurting the ears, the vinyl pads blocks well external noises and sound leaking, but the pads tend to wear after some months of heavy use. Though replacements are cheap and easy to change.
~This is my first review. I've had these phones since June 2014, and I don't doubt they will last for many years.
