Hi everybody! I have to buy my first headphones for field recording. I know that Sony 7506 are absolutely a standard and that if I buy them I'll be OK for the rest of my life. :-)
Before buying the 7506s I would like to ask if there's anything better. I tried a pair of Ultrasone Pro 750s for a couple of days. I thought they were amazing. What do you think about them? And what do you think about the AKG K271s?
Keep in mind that if you do a lot of field recording your headphones will get beat up, no matter how careful you are. The Ultrasone's are very nice but do you want them potentially getting beat up?
I have about a half dozen 7506's for field use. Yes, there are better sounding headphones on the market and at times I would like more isolation but they get the job done for a fraction of the price of Ultrasone's.

You should have a look at this post where the subject is discussed in quite a lot of detail. Other than the 7506's, a lot of people are using Beyerdynamic DT 770s. Have a look at the post and you'll see that a lot of this community have already voiced their views.
