Customer Reviews for Sony MDR-Z7M2 Hi-Res Stereo Over-Ear Headphones (Black)
Bass is just right for me, not too much and not too little, well detailed and blends into low mids well without overwhelming or drowning out anything else, hearing double bass being plucked is just phenomenal, very natural and lush. Vocals are slightly recessed but that could just be me coming from the 660s. Listening to classical music strings can be a bit harsh at higher volumes but it's certainly nothing that stands out and really shouldn't be an issue. Separation and imaging are great and as I said before, a very large sound, you'll know what I mean when you listen to them.
Highly recommend you run these with the 4.4bal cable, I'm driving them from the Fiio Q5s and Tidal HIFI from my laptop USB or phone LDAC. I use them as my portable headphones due to them being closed back, they isolate well enough that if you're walking down the street you won't hear footsteps or someone talking to you, however, wearing them on a loud bus with people talking they won't be so good. I use the Sony WH1000xm2 for that stuff. Leakage isn't too bad, listening at moderate volumes in a silent room the sound will leak to the people around you.
Build quality is top notch, all metal build with leather feels really nice in your hands and the earpads and deep and large, they feel heavy in your hands but weight distribution is unreal. Even someone like me with large ears doesn't have the pads touching my ears, for reference I have both headbands on 5. They are black and metal so if you put a nick in them you'll see it. Rear connectors feel sturdy and the screw in connectors feel really nice when screwing them in, when they are on the ground or hanging on a stand they cross each other which isn't an issue but we'll see about long-term durability. Headband is plush and soft, feels really good and after a while I forget I'm wearing these, comfort is 11/10. Provided cables are top notch with very minimal microphonics and the splitter is a nice tough, big thank you to Sony for providing a 1.2m 4.4 cable and a 10ft/3m cable with 3.5mm termination and 6.35 adaptor which is a bit proprietary due to their being a skirt on it to fit the cable. Sennheiser gave me 2 10ft cables, one 6.35 and one 4.4 which is not ideal for portable players that usually have the balanced out so big thanks to Sony.
Packaging is great and box is pretty cool, it's not like the Z1R box but for about twice the price you get twice the quality. I do enjoy these headphones but I'll upgrade them first to the Z1R before I upgrade the 660s.
Overall, very good headphones. Thanks Sony, keep it up
