You simply can’t beat them on value. They don’t have style. They don’t have features. They don’t have a removable cable. They don’t have a phone remote. But they have everything that matters for an audio fan, or pros.

What the Sony MDR-7056 really shines at is giving you a very accurate and smooth presentation of whatever it is you’re listening to. So if you’re looking for the most faithful reproduction of sound you can get at this price point, whether for professional or personal use, then these are the perfect headphones.

So should you buy these? If you’re going to be producing, absolutely. They’re an industry standard for a reason.
