Visually - yeah - they look different. The v6 has a silver/chrome looking plug while the 7506's plug looks goldish..

Unbelievable that they were priced at $40 when they are now $110 there. You sure about that? The Sony Store isn't exactly known as a place to get slick deals.
And what's the big deal about a gold plate, is the audio heard any different? Do they look and feel the same exact way?

I also have the similar MDR-V6. Worked in TV productions for decades, a lot of the audio guys, especially the field guys, used these or the MDR-V6. I've tried both and honestly can't tell the difference.
Both have a very flat, not spiced response.
I don't know if they're the best, but they're pretty dang good.
(the first thing I did was remove the silly "digital" stickers on the side - that didn't affect the sound at all

Good info. It was nice chatting.

To each their own of course, if you like them, hey....
I am a fairly experienced audiophile. Its not like ive only listened to them in a single place with no comparison. My Sony V6's ive used off of $800 receivers for movies and music, used them off computer output in games/music, casual use etc. Of course you can make them sound better to some degree, but the fact remains, for me theres just better options out there. As I said already, Sony line a very well known for having weak bass and more of a raw sound to them. Id take my Sennheiser HD555/595's or Audio-technicas over them any day.
For the most part, I use headphones for movie watching and music. For that, Sony's fall short in the bass and comfort/longevity department. Im definitely not big on Supra-aural headphones. Grado's are better if you really like Supra-aural stuff.
Also, keep in mind. Seeing them on radio and such doesnt really prove anything. Sony's are considered fairly inexpensive and have been on the market for like 20 years lol... This is also for strict studio use do you see those. They arnt being used for movie watching or music enjoyment heh. They are being used for their raw output nature. They are studio headphones, they arnt there to offer an incredible soundstage presence.

Then I took them over to a stereo that actually send a lot of power to it's headphone jack and it was like I was wearing new headphones. Night and day. I'm really into the whole audio quality stuff and when a decent setup these are amazing sounding.
It sounds like you just have a sweaty fat head and a poorly powered headphone amp. Haha...
I'm TOTALLY just joking around with ya But really, these CAN sound really great. I see people wearing them on radio/podcasts/etc very often.

They're billed as studio monitors with a flat response curve. In English, that means they come as close as you can to delivering the raw, unadulterated sound exactly as it was recorded. If you prefer a different frequency profile like a punchy bass, that's what an equalizer is for. By the same token, if you like a punchy bass in everything you listen to, these are not the headphones you're looking for.

We have the same exact in our church. The leather/fabric on the muffs is bad quality. All we have left is the padding underlay. I dont think that they are worth anything above $60. We are shopping for new ones, and these are off the list.
Edit: Just to add some good things about these... The sound quality is crystal clear. And for all you people who are looking for "great sounding" look elsewhere. These don't have noise cancellation or frequency boost like BOSE. They are not suppose to. these are for professionals who want to hear every imperfection that there is in the sound stream, so that they can better do their work.
