Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 630-879-1286 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

MDR-Z7 Headphones

Sony MDRZ7

Features

  • Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24 bit/192 kHz, rather than 16 bit/44.1 kHz), High-Resolution Audio gets you closer to the original studio master recording so you can enjoy your music just as the artist intended.
  • Mighty 2.76 in HD driver units power through your music, keeping every note precise, no matter how high you turn up the volume. Because of their massive size, these drivers create a plane wave effect in the earcups that prevents reflection delays and minimizes sound loss. So you can hear all the emotion and energy of the original recording with punchy bass and crystal clear high notes.
  • The wideband frequency range-spanning 4 Hz to 100 kHz-is designed for today's broad variety of music styles. The 4 Hz low end of the frequency range offers more than enough latitude for even the deepest sub-bass notes. At the 100 kHz high-end, you'll be able to enjoy vocal melodies, subtle audio harmonics and tonality, giving your music more life and realism.
  • With a high sensitivity of 102 dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. That means you'll hear a clearer sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.

Enjoy music as the artist intended with High-Resolution Audio Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24 bit/192 kHz, rather than 16 bit/44.1 kHz), High-Resolution Audio gets you closer to the original studio master recording so you can enjoy your music just as the artist intended.

Massive HD drivers deliver engaging sound Mighty 2.76 in HD driver units power through your music, keeping every note precise, no matter how high you turn up the volume. Because of their massive size, these drivers create a plane wave effect in the earcups that prevents reflection delays and minimizes sound loss. So you can hear all the emotion and energy of the original recording with punchy bass and crystal clear high notes.

Wide frequency response for a full range of sound The wideband frequency range-spanning 4 Hz to 100 kHz-is designed for today's broad variety of music styles. The 4 Hz low end of the frequency range offers more than enough latitude for even the deepest sub-bass notes. At the 100 kHz high-end, you'll be able to enjoy vocal melodies, subtle audio harmonics and tonality, giving your music more life and realism.

High sensitivity for a clear performance With a high sensitivity of 102 dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. That means you'll hear a clearer sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.

Aluminum-coated LCP diaphragm for more precision An aluminum-coated, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm produces more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range compared with conventional LCP drivers. Sound energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform for a true and authentic performance. Also enjoy a flatter frequency response, even when listening to the ultrahigh frequencies in High-Resolution Audio.

Enfolding closed-back design seals in sound The closed-back, enfolding design wraps around the ear, helping to seal in music and keep distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears, so you'll hear even the subtlest of sounds. You'll also feel every beat, as the closed-back design helps to maximize the bass signatures in your music.

Balanced audio cuts cross-talk With a balanced four-wire connection and silver-copper dual cord, audio channel separation is improved for better sound. Unlike conventional headphones which share a ground wire, the cord includes left, right and independent ground wires for both channels, so you'll hear less distortion and cross-talk.

Made in Japan for superior quality Made in Japan, Sony products are synonymous with absolute quality and performance. Only the finest components and manufacturing techniques are used to create headphones that push the boundaries of sound purity.

All-metal design keeps sound stable Constructed in high density metal, these headphones suppress unwanted vibration and keep sound stable. The metal housing resonates less than housings made from more traditional materials to give clearer mids to highs and smoother low frequency sounds. A metal hanger sleeve, shaft and hinge ensures excellent durability. For wearing comfort, the light and flexible metal headband can be easily adjusted to fit perfectly around the head.

Luxurious leather earpads for total comfort Soft leather earpads, designed to shape around your ears, give a secure and comfortable fit. Smooth materials and seamless sewing provide a harmonious mix of comfort and durability for long hours of listening.

PHA-3 compatible lets you hear High-Resolution Audio Take your music further. The optional PHA-3 portable DAC amp takes the digital output of your PC, smartphone or Walkman® and converts the signal to an analog output for amplification. One of the world's first headphone amplifiers to support 384 kHz/32-bit PCM, DSD (5.6 MHz), and balanced audio output, it's perfect for pairing with these headphones.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
