Fun Portable Over-Ear

  • Excerpt: I bought a pair out of curiosity. I see mix reviews on 10Rs but wanted to find out for myself what Sony cans are like. I do think they are good value and a fun headphone to use. The first thing that stands out sound wise is the exaggerated bottom end and it over takes what otherwise is a very balance and well sorted top end. The bass is so strong that it drowns out the excellent mid/highs. The bass sounds bloated and unnatural.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good isolation, Lightweight, Strong bass, Stylish
  • Cons: Rolled Off Highs, Tight Fit, Un-natural Bass

  • 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 price of $100 (10R)/$150 (10RBT/RDC)/$200(RNC), pending your local retailer availability of course.
  • 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!     Summary:   The 10R has a comfortable, lightweight design that is pretty much best in class for the ~$99 street prices I've seen for this headphone.
  • Pros: Comfortable, lightweight, detachable cables
  • Cons: Boomy bass, muffled vocals, nasal treble, unbalanced sound

  • Summary: I bought these headphone looking for a good sound quality. I was not disappointed. They are everything I expected. They look as good as the picture shown on the Crutchfield site. They are very comfortable to wear and I think they are very good at blocking external noises. I like that the ear pads swivel for storage and travel. The L shaped connector is a great feature. The quality seems very good and the ear pads are very soft.
  • Pros: Excellent sound and comfort.
  • Cons: None
