This isn’t really much of a review . . . just a quick note on how to improve your aging headphones.
I’ve had a couple of Sony MDR-7506 industry-standard headphones for over a decade now. One pair I use more regularly than the other, and they’re starting to show some wear and tear on the earpads. I was getting black flaky vinyl crap on my ears and shoulders and they are coming apart at the seams.
To help extend the life of these headphones for a few more years, I picked up a set of Garfield Headphone Softie Earpad Covers from B&H a couple of weeks ago. For $17, they made my decade-old go-to headphones like new again.
There are loads of options for replacement earpads on these headphones. I like the price and comfort of the Garfield Softies. They may even be better than new because my face/ears don’t sweat where the earpads make contact as I did with the original vinyl earpads. Maybe I should have gotten some of these covers sooner…?
Adding the earpad covers to the Sony MDR-7506s is done by simply sliding the covers over the existing earpads. It takes a few seconds and then you’ve got nice, comfortable headphones again.
Again, these are $17 and can be found in several colors here at B&H Photo.
B&H has this deal again, featuring the full frame Sony A7 II with the 28-70mm OSS lens for $998 (reg. $1598). This deal has popped up a couple of times this year but doesn’t seem to last long. Check it out while you can here at B&H Photo.

Sony had a special event in NYC this morning to unveil its new 61MP A7R IV full-frame camera. While Canon and Nikon are playing catchup in the mirrorless realm, Sony is showing no signs of slowing down as it continues to push the envelope with higher resolution and more innovation. The A7 product line continues to become more refined and serve as the standard for what enthusiasts and pros expect out of a $2000-$3500 camera. [Read more…]
Sony’s image sensor business is a behemoth. Back in January 2016, I told you that Sony would use its sensor production to rule the digital imaging world. Now, it’s getting so big that one of Sony’s large investors wants to see its image sensor business spun off into a separate entity. [Read more…]
