The Sony MDR-7509 HD Headphones are a professional pair of over-the-head, around-the-ear headphones, which is ideal in a recording studio, and also great for film production, radio, video production, and virtually any audio-related application. These headphones feature large 50mm driver units, amorphous diamond evaporated diaphragms, high power handling, extended LF reproduction (which is required by high-definition recording systems), and more. The MDR-7509HD is also equipped with reversible ear cups, so it can be used for single ear monitoring, and it is also completely fold-able, and fits nicely into the included string-closing bag. I did find, however, that over years, the fabric on the side of the ear muff became damaged, and I'm not sure if it was caused by transporting and folding the headphones into the carry bag. Nevertheless, they sound and feel great, even with that minor damage.

The cable of the headphones is partially coiled (like old telephone cables), which helps keep the cable out of the way during most studio usage. However, you should be careful on where you drag the cable, particularly the 1/4 or 1/8 inch connector, because on my pair of Sony headphones, this connection started to fail, and I will need to replace the connector eventually. This is true with most audio cabling, however, as they are all prone to failure if abused and dropped on the floor multiple times.

The audio quality of these headphones is spectacular, and they are extremely comfortable to wear. I use them almost exclusively when I am mastering and mixing my tracks, and when I am recording vocals. They do not isolate outside noise too much, but they are not made to do that, and I would not use these for drummers, as you may risk pushing too much power into them, damaging the drivers.

Overall, a wonderful pair of Sony headphones, and at $200, they may be a bit steep, but they are certainly worth the money.
