Summary: Oh wow, I actually have a set of headphones that I can review that was released quite recently. And by those, they are the MDR-10R family. Released in Sept. 2013 at MSRP of $200/$250/$300 ish for normal, Bluetooth, and Noise Cancelling Editions, they have gone down to more affordable and reasonable...
Pros: Very comfortable, excels at certain genres
Cons: Bass hump kills a lot of details, recessed vocals and darker than average presentation
Summary: Disclosure: I received these headphones from Sony Australia as a review sample to keep.
Here is my video review of the 10R, as well as some brief notes about the sound and build of the headphone. Please check out my channel if you enjoyed the video!
