Owner since 1992 I bought these headphones in 1992, and unlike most of the rest of the stuff I squandered my money on back then, these were and continue to be the real deal.My earpads have flaked off their coating like everyone else. But no need to buy new phones, you can order the earpads from sony.com or some specialty audio stores:MDR-V6/MDR-7506 Ear PadPART: X-2113-124-1PRICE: $6.00 (US)

A Classic I can’t recall how long I’ve owned my MDR-V6 phones, but it’s easily been ten years. The sound is excellent, virtually uncolored, and unlike other top of the line headphones like Sennheiser’s (which are VERY nice and well over $150.00) these sound as good used with a portable CD player as with a well powered home system.

Great headphones NOTE: These headphones are in every way the same as the MDR-7506’s, well-loved headphones for studio work. Even the replacement part #’s are exactly the same. So this review is for either one (I bought both).Anyone who has been listening to music on normal street headphones will be blown away by these. The first thing you notice is how soft and comfortable they are to wear – the earcups surround your ears, leaving no pressure on the ears themselves. Then, when the music starts, you notice:1) background noise is blocked out2) bass is full and punchy, not muddy, boomy, or distorted3) every detail shines through4) the music is LOUD for the given volume settingHere are my comments on these four aspects:1) background noise is blocked outBecause these headphones surround your ears and are “closed back,” they really do diminish outside noise. It’s nothing like the Bose active noise-cancelling…
