Sony MDR-7506

I’ve owned a pair of these for almost a decade and used them daily, so they well deserved a dedicated review page. Got these as a gift back in 2007 or 2008 and it took me some time to get acquainted to them after using crappy chat headphones, but they soon became my #1 headphones, mainly for playing guitar through them. At first I was using them with a Pocket Pod processor, but later moved to portable recorders and finally into the world of audio interfaces, DAWs and VST simulations.

Ear pad upgrade

After 5 or 6 years, the leather ear pads started disintegrating and leaving small pieces of leather around the house, so it was time to replace them. I read somewhere that Beyerdynamic DT250 ear pads fit and I loved the way velvet pads on my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro feel, so I bought a pair or replacement velvet pads for DT250. It’s pretty simple procedure to take the old pads off and install new ones and the replacement pads fit perfectly. They are very comfortable and I did not notice any change in the sound.
