I owns both headphones. MY MDR7506 is a used one, YR 1991, 30 years old and still going strong. MDR7506 is a lot better soundwise. The bass is more powerful and cleaner. MDR7506 shines when it comes to treble. It does not have noise cancellation but I am ok with it. There are a few good points with WHH910N. It is wireless, tactile, lighter and lasts very long on one full charge. I use the WHH910N mainly for watching TV, but as far as music is concerned, I would prefer MDR7506 especially when I am working on the laptop / Desktop. My opinion is that the MDR7506 is the winner when it comes to sound.

Sound quality

This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Sony MDR 7506
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

Features

These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
2.has ambient sound mode
Sony MDR 7506
Ambient sound mode uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard. It’s useful when you want to listen to music but also be aware of what’s happening around you, for example when you’re jogging but still want to be able to hear traffic.
Sensors can detect when they are removed from your ears so that the music is paused, saving battery life.
