One of the channels on my MDR-7506 gets a little fuzzy in the bass intermittently, too. It's got a sound like there's just some hair or something in there; it doesn't sound like an electrical noise. This is not a very professional solution, but I found the problem goes away if I give it a good tap with my finger, right on the driver (the part that faces your ear). No need to remove the covers or anything. The delicate parts of the driver are well protected from something as blunt as your finger. As long as you're not pounding on it or jamming things into it, there's no danger of doing more damage. In mine the symptom is a minor inconvenience, so I'm not inclined to buy new ones yet. I heard that special ordering each driver from Sony costs almost as much as a whole new unit, so repair isn't cost-effective if the driver really needs to be replaced.
As for replacement, well, for durable, multi-purpose headphones with great range at a reasonable price, the MDR-7506 can't be beat. Some people say they think the high end is too bright on these, and the low as well, but if you've got normal patterns of hearing loss, you probably need the slight boosts, IMHO. Just don't switch to anything else without testing them out with your own music first; if you go shopping for something different, go to a store that lets you test the phones and bring some CDs and/or a portable player with music you're familiar with.

to reach the internal battery You have to
1) gently detach the L(left) internal soft ear cover from the headphones,
2) Unscrew the 4 internal screws
To replace the original NiCd 600mAh battery, You have to unsolder the contacts of the old battery and solder the contacts of the new one.
You must buy a battery with soldering tabs, because tabs are very hard to solder well.
Yes, ONLY with this model You may use a NiMh battery, because the original charge-circuit was designed to stop after the battery is fully charged. (NOT many NiCd battery chargers have a cut-off circuit based on battery charge. they use only thermic protection cut-off)
I've used 2800mAh NiMh to solve the problem,
but I'm thinking to use the new hybrid cells battery,
because they have a very small discharge rate when are not in use.
No, You must not use LiIon or LiPo because they need a more precise charging rate and they may explode.Simply don't do that!
