Sony MDR-V6 Review from an ex-7506 User

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.

For how long have you been using it? 1 month and a half
Did you try many other models before getting this one? AKG K272 HD / Sony MDR-V500DJ / Pioneer hdj1000 / dyn Beyers

What thing do you like most/least about it?
Plus: the driver is "wide" is great and they are very strong hehe
Witness: the fact sheet still silver? then it's not cool: D but ...

What is your opinion about the value for the price? well there it is on top .. not really expensive and this quality is still good:)

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... Yes certainnement. she used to listen to music more than to make the recording. I'm plugged into a vintage amply type class A is well ..

voila 9 / 10 because it is not realistic to give 10!

The MDR-V6 is the exact equivalent of the MDR-7506, but marketed in the United States.
Opinions regarding the latter will therefore apply to it.
The only diffrence between the two models are as follows:

Submitted on a 7506-sheet or plate, unlike the V6
-Frequency drives to the beach rponse of 7506 (from 5 to 20.000 Hz) is less tense than the V6 (5 to 30.000 Hz)
