Not Bluetooth as advertised

K. A. Leatham, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: Just got the headphones and they sound great. However, I purchased them for the Bluetooth connectivity as advertised which they do not have. It was clearly stated in the description that this product had it. What a disappointment. I have since reported this to Amazon and they have offered my money back on return. However, this is not the point. This product has been misadvertised to the customer.

OK but not worth the price...

A.Techie, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Bought these after reading reviews on Amazon and they are not worth the price! It just shows that reviews cannot be truly trusted these days on web sites. Amazon reduced the price day after I placed an order. That is very frustrating! Sound is OK but the main thing is, it leaks sound as soon as you are at the mid way level on the volume button! Base is OK but again you need to listen at a fairly high volume to feel the effect.

Low Bass, but not too bad.

Nexion, Amazon
2 March 2013
  • Summary: Everyone has different music preferences, I've tested these headphones on hip hop, kpop, and classical. The bass is extremely weak for kpop and hiphop. For classical, everything was ok, but has harsh high just like what the other review said. I did some adjustments using the equaliser and eventually got to what I wanted. This pair of headphones can do what you want, but you to have spend time to do adjustments.

Good but...

Anatro1, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: Very nice look, comfortable, light, good quality, nice sound. If you're looking for heavy bass these might not be the best choice for you. The big problem is that the audio jack end on the headphones is loose which means that I kept hearing a ticking sound whilst I was walking which was extremely annoying so unfortunately I had to return them. If you're not planning to carry them around then you'll be fine.

Aus dem Sony-Möchte-Haben-Wollen wurde dann Bayerdynamic CUSTOM ONE PRO

EOS Technologies GmbH, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: Nach mehr als 10 Jahre Sennheiser HD-265 Linear wollte ich etwas Neues haben. Ich habe mir dann die Rezensionen hier durchgelesen und wollte heute den SONY MDR-1 kaufen. Beim Probehören habe ich festgestellt: der SONY klingt sehr "optimiert" und "gepuscht". Hier wurde die Klangcharakteristik wohl für das breite (MP3) Publikum optimiert. Viel Bass, viel Höhen, alles viel. Auch viel Plastik. SONY hat leider keine hohe n Ansprüche mehr, wie in den 80ern und 90ern...

  • Summary: Meine Bewertung ist so niedrig, weil keine Mögligkeit gibt die Ware umzutauschen,zum Beispiel gegen Model Sony MDR-10RCB.die angeblich saftige Bässe hat.

quality does not meet the price

Dmitry, Amazon
12 October 2013
  • Summary: For 250 Euro (170 with discount) I expected at least polished aluminium instead of plastic. Connection cable was for Apple devices, while in the world Apple is not top selling device. Developers could also think about Samsung users for example. Very uncomfortable to wear them on the neck. Ears are sweating during use because of lack of ventilation (it was at +10, so what will happen in summer?). Note " made in Taiwan" is very obvious and eye catching.

Tegenvaller

Stinksok schreef, wehkamp.nl
8 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Had beter verwacht van deze geprezen 1R,middetonen te prominent aanwezig waardoor de bas raar klinkt,stemmen klinken ver weg en de sound is te relaxed voor mij,niet mijn smaak dus.Het comfort is wel erg goed en zit gegoten en bijna niet voelbaar zo lekker zit hij.De looks zijn ook top maar het geluid is nummer 1 bij mij en dat zat niet goed,heb hierna de Philips Fidelio X1 gekocht en vond ik vele malen beter.

Sony MDR-1RB gesloten hoofdtelefoon

Zulfu Colak, bax-shop.nl
15 March 2013
  • Summary: ik had deze koptelefoon aangeschaft omdat bij reviews op baxshop.nl de hemel in werd geprezen.. (misschien ben ik wel kieskeurig omdat ik vaak muziek luister door mijn : Technics RP DH1200 en Sony MDR V700) dankzij de vlotte en goede service van baxshop had ik deze koptelefoon eergister besteld en gister binnen gekregen, waarna ik het vandaag weer retour gestuurd heb.
