Some people say that the 7506 have a tiny bit more bass, but if you want a neutral sound MDRV6 beat them.

Wow, you're right I never knew that

The only reason why I picked the M30s over the MDR V6 is because of the mixed reactions I read on comfort with glasses on (I realize this is subjective though), which to me, is a big deal, but it's reassuring to read another positive report on the comfort front. Perhaps I'll give them another look.
@Tacoboy: I'll be connecting them into my PS3 through a RCA -> 3.5mm adaptor, and just directly into my Macbook Pro '12 (whatever onboard audio that thing has).
How would I know if I have a "big" head or not?
@jesh462: Thanks for the long and detailed response! I haven't read that thread in its entirely (it's pretty long...), but I'm aware of their solid reputation. I realize that at that price range, you probably can't get anything better in price-performance without spending significantly more, but unfortunately, it's still in the range that is out of my budget range that I currently want to spend on my audio equipment (I'm not an audiophile). At some point in the future, I may reverse this stance, but for now, I'm going to pass on the Fischer's.
I knew the M50s had recessed mids, and weren't a "neutral" pair of headphones, but at its price point, seemed like a pretty solid overall pair of headphones, so I was willing to overlook those shortcomings.
I wasn't aware of the MDR-ZX700s, I'll look into them.
The K240s sound a lot like the AD700s by your description.
Hm, I'll look into the HSR-1000s too.
Thanks again!

The Sony MDR V6 headphones can use the Beyerdynamic EDT 200/250 Velour ear pads, best price for the pads $18.48 at Sweetwater.
I bought used MDR-V6s for $48 used, then just add the EDT 250s

I would assume then you do not have a large head (for use with the Gemini HSR-1000).

Those are the pads I bought. And yeah I have a smallish head.
