Top Customer Review:
After watching several reviewers provide mixed reviews on Youtube I was a bit skepticle, especially since I had no way to audition the product without puchasing it as none of the local stores carried them. I also own the Shure SRH840 headphones which are great but they do not reproduce sub bass frequencies and I play lots of electronica as well as other types of music. Upon first listen I had to admit I was not wowed, especially for thrice the price of the Shures. After a serious break in session I must admit Sony came through....Big time. I began listening to hi res audio for the first time and was immediately astonished.

Sony offers a huge range of headphone models, but it hasn't made a headphone that goes toe to toe with the top audiophile models in quite some time. The MDR-Z7 is such a headphone. It looks, feels and sounds like the real deal and it better, considering it costs $700 (£550, AU$1000), though it can be found for less online.
The benefit of that closed-back design is that the MDR-Z7 doesn't leak much sound and its plush "pressure-relieving urethane cushions" with 3D-sewn covers do a good job passively sealing out ambient noise. This is a really comfortable headphone and while not as light as the MDR-1A , it's relatively light (335 g or 11.8 oz. without cable) for a full-size high-end headphone that has a sturdy metal headband and hinges.
At this price point, a lot of audiophiles choose to go with an open-back headphone to get that more open, airy quality that open-back headphones deliver (the Beyerdynamic T90 , HiFiMan HE-400i or various Grados, for example). The MDR-Z7 is a closed-back design but manages to sound more like an open-back, so imaging is broad and beautifully focused.
