So, I really love my Sony MDR7506 but the cable has a short right by the jack and they don't work consistently. What's the best course of action to repair this? Also - any recommendations for replacement ear pads are welcome.

Can you handle soldering? It is pretty simple to cut the cord (Once you know where the break is). Buy a replacement 3.5mm jack and resolder it. I have done this many times with my B&O and Klipsch iem’s. It is a fairly common problem and when you have a lot of money invested, it is crazy to buy another pair. I like the right angle ones so you can relieve the stress on the socket too. The soldering supplies should cost 25 bucks for what you would need.

As for replacement pads, avoid cheap $10 fake-leather - too small and sweaty. Velour are more comfortable and durable than original. I bought myself "Beyerdynamic EDT250V Headphone Ear Pads" for $20 - they fit perfectly.

Somehow I totally missed this when you actually posted it.
Unfortunately, I think that the break is actually on the right lead and also near the jack - necessitating a total replacement of the cable essentially. I've not had time to look into tutorials since I posted this but I'm very interested in trying to replace the cable with a 3.5mm detachable.

And those fit the Sony MDR7506 as well?

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips. I can't find anything online explaining if this is normal behavior or just a shortcoming of bluetooth or these specific...
