Was this item an overall good value?
I purchased my initial pair back in 1993 as I was looking for the best set of headphones to use in a three year graduate program on television and film. I was reading that this type was being used for the television show "Northern Exposure", which was my favorite at the time. I purchased a pair for the same amount as they cost now and used them through all the production projects, and later I used the same pair literally around the world doing television and film productions. Folks continually noted I could hear things they couldn't, partly due to the help of these headphones. Also, whenever we went on location to a studio or rented equipment, the MDR7506 Sony's were typically the type that other professionals used. My first pair served me well for probably thousands of shoots over the course of 10-15 years. I've worked professionally, making my living with these headphones. If there were better ones, I would have had them instead.
