Sony MDR-1R Headphone

Sound & Vision Magazine
20 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Some companies jump into the now-trendy headphone category on a wing and a prayer. Sony, on the other hand, is the steward of Sony Music and the master of numerous audio product categories, including a long history in headphones. So a set of midpriced ’phones from Sony raises high hopes.

  • Summary: So here is my review of the MDR-1R.   Looks:     Its a good looking headphone. nothing to complain about. It is by far my best looking headphone, but that is easy to do :)   Build:   The build is good, solid feeling and not a flimsy feeling piece of plastic.
  • Pros: Good overall sound. Clear mids and clean treble with the Blu Tack mod
  • Cons: Bass has a little upper bass bump and lacks some extension, Mids are a bit forward, Hinge and wind noise issues are present on the go.

  • Summary: If I can describe these in one sentence, it would be this: "They are the very portable edition of MDR-ZX700 with replaceable input cables."   There in lies the rub. They sound nigh incredibly close to the MDR-ZX700 in all regards.
  • Pros: Comfortable beyond belief. Replaceable Cables. Sounds Just Like MDR-ZX700
  • Cons: Weak Accessory Pack. Cable Rattle Issues. Sounds Just Like MDR-ZX700
