Sony MDR-V6 Review from an ex-7506 User (MDR-V6)

By SpiralShaper, 03/06/2015
The MDR-V6 are the big brother of the MDR-7506. They are driven by CCAW electromagnet voice coils, giving them a frequency response of 10Hz to 30kHz which far outstrips the 7506's. The V6 are not as new user friendly as the 7506's either. Where the 7506's sound like headphones, making them easier for a beginner to mix with, the V6's have a much more natural response. The lower band response gives it less buildup in the 60-120 Hz range than the 7506's. Because of the increase in 10Hz response and 7.5kHz+ response, these headphones can sound spitty due to the tighter attacks. The dynamic response is much more sensitive on these phones, and therefore the mix sounds deeper. The higher bandwidth makes the frequency spectrum taller. The V6's make everything from your stereo field, frequency spectrum, and dynamic depth all sound gigantic, albeit sometimes to the degree of sounding sparse. In my experience this is a fact of the phones, and helps create dynamically complex mixes when run through less dynamic speakers.

Overall I'm happy with the way these phones affect my mixes. I used to glut 120-240Hz in my mixes because of the increased bass response of the 7506's and the V6's remedied that problem. They are not a beginner's phone though for the complexity of their output. I VOTE 4.5/5. My only major complaint is that the phone cups can be rough on the cheeks after many hours and the amount of sweat that builds up in them.

Once again, 4.5/5. I am a big fan of the Sony MDR-V6.

Never disappointed (MDR-7506)

-How Long have you use it?
I use it for more than 10 years

-What Is so special that you like most and least?
by (+): His sound, his strength and length of the cable
by (-): The fragility of its changeable foam once or twice a year .. it's expensive ..

Beyerdynamic DT100 and Sony MDR 7509. But they were not to me ...

How would you rate the quality / price?
although at the time I did not know online stores .. so I paid full pots in a store .. and 225 euro it hurt ..:-) good at the same time at the same time it was listening in 189 or £ 199 at thomann so good .. when I said there .. it pisses me but ... we can say that it was to be in solidarity with the French traders ..:-)

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
If I Had to Do It All Over Again ... Yes .. well I to do it again this choice, it has been my first personal headphone, and he followed me in all my adventures since never let me !! but I do not buy the same place that's all ..;-)

-For What do you use this headset
headphone used by musicians for the sound studio, and as a comparative listening mix.

-What Music do you listen to?
Listening to mix acoustic folk, jazz, modern jazz, jazz fusion, jazzfunk, rock, variety.

He -S'adapte easily to your head and your ears? Do you find it tiring during extended wear:
Comfortable to wear headphones, just unpleasant can on top of the skull after a while, now ... well ... it has more than 10 years ...:-) .. but in the beginning, I do not remember not myself full of comfort ..

-The headphone you seem strong or weak?
The headphone is solid, very solid and even the views of the various shocks and other hazardous manipulations live it stinks ... but (-1) for foams that wear out too easily

-its Appearance or performance have they degraded over time?
I do not feel that anything was changed at this level, but to be on should buy another one .. and it's not my priority ..:-)

-The Audio quality of the headphones you she looks good (serious global balance, midrange, treble, stereo)?
The quality of the headset is great for me ... hair cell I ask a headphone ... one can not too low, mids and highs mediums present ..
He respects the audio jack of all good ..

-His Noise you seem too low or too high?
Sound level is good, more or less

-What Does its sound insulation (do you hear outside noise from your headphones, and is what people hear the music you listen to)?
headphone sold as closed, and I think it is closed when the foams are in good condition .. I find foams by fragile against because they deteriorate quickly.
on the other hand I found it a bit too far into the microphone during a power voice ...
