"Great Headphones"
Overall a great pair of headphones, they are durable, and comfortable. Definatly one of my better purchases.

Sound
We used to use crappy consumer headphones for our mixing, until I was introduced to Sony's MDR 7000 line of headphones. These headphones sound great, for both live mixing, and listening to recorded media. They are really revealing of the quality of the recorded media. They have a full solnic range, give tight bass, and smooth highs.

Features
came with a carrying bag, screw on 1/8" to 1/4" gold plated adapter, 3m cord. Basically everything yuo would expect to come with a pair of headphones.

Quality
These headphones are very well made, I've seen some used for remote broadcasts take *alot* of abuse and still work perfectly. most parts are replacable should they break, however it has a pretty solid construction.

Value
This product is definatly worht the price, it sounds great, and is durable.

Manufacturer Support
Can only give an 8 because I haven't personally needed their support, however a friend of mine bought a pair of 7506 headphones that came with a piece broken inside, so he sent it back under warranty and got a new one in about a week.

The Wow Factor
I'm fairly young for a sound technician, however a professional looking pair of headphones can read more make you also look professional. You could survive with crappy headphones and still make a decent mix, but this is your personal comfort. after extended periods of running sound, you definatly want a pair of good sounding, comfortable headphones. However there are higher pairs out there (at much higher prices).

Musical Style:
Techno, Rap, Rock, Alternative, pretty much everything.
