7506 (and GK Ultraphones) are the only phones I use at home, in the studio, and on tour.
I think those Vic Firth headphones are crap. The drivers aren't very good, and they're too close to your ears in any case. The Vics don't come close to the GK ultra phones. I'd avoid those.On Amazon, the Sony headphones you guys have been mentioning are only $85. It's very tempting.
Anyone use the Vic Firth headphones? I'm interested in those also.
Oddly enough the Sony's weren't listed there. Still, I'd get the Sony's on Bo's recommendation alone. The price is right and I'm not looking for state of the art, just a really great headphone with good bass.

I inherited a nice sounding pair of phones from my late stepson. Lightyears ahead of my crappy VF headphones. The brand is Steelseries and it uses a USB connector. He used it as a gamer's headphone. It's got really nice bass response, but I have nothing to compare it to. They go for about $100. I could use a few more nice sets of headphones, and at 85 bucks and with both Bo's and Bermuda's blessing, yea that sounds like a great deal. I don't HAVE to spend 200 plus lol.
That is definitely a thing with Sonys - but the key is to get Sony pads. A lot of the after market ones that people use Aury, Beyer Dynamic, etc. - negatively alter the sound quality. They’re not sized correctly and cover up the drivers... Then you’ll be in Beats territoryNote on the Sony 7500 series... If you're going to buy the Sony's, remember to buy a couple pairs of extra ear-muffs when you buy them. They're about $3 per pair. While Sony has likely fixed their black-flake-disintegrating earmuff issue, it's always good to keep a backup set for when shit happens.
