Just a note about Sony headphones - I would stick with the professional line
- the 7506's are the "industry standard", and the 7509's are even better
(better isolation due to more ergonomic earcups, bigger driver).
Their consumer line - the V600's, V900's, and assorted "DJ" headphones I
have seen mentioned tend to have their low end tweaked up - something akin
to a mild version of the old "loudness" or "presence" knobs on old stereos,
IMHO. Great for consumer listening, but not for critical audio archiving or
This is just my personal opinion - not based on any actual scientific
anything - I'd actually be interested to hear if anyone else has noticed
this difference between pro and consumer lines...
