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

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.
- HiFi Helper

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.
- Alex Rowe on Medium

[They] click with all music genres and are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. They sound excellent for their relatively modest price point. With a coiled, pro-style cable and lack of an inline remote/microphone, some will find the 7506s less mobile-friendly than more modern headphones. They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100.
