  • Summary: No need to elaborate on what has already been said about these but I summarise my time with the Sony MDR 1Rs:   Pros: -Nice build quality -Removable cable -Deep bass (not too deep) -Big soundstage -Can be great for some electronic music   Cons: -Recessed mids -Lack the resolution you would expect for the price -Bass can feel out of control at times -Not enough *POW* -Can feel sluggish -At the price (and way below) there are much better all round and bass-centric...
  • Pros: Some nice deep bass notes. Big soundstage
  • Cons: Audio Technica M50s

  • Summary: a good solid headphone that lacks any defining characteristics. nice midrange, clean, clear presentation. however, without a deeper more "gutzy" well rounded bottom end i don't expect these cans to be more than just great decoration for my wall............
  • Pros: great style
  • Cons: lacks authority, timid baseline

Disapointed

Jim, Amazon

  • Summary: Sound quality is excellent, bass not over powering. Very comfortable to wear, light and they do fit over the ear, some that claim to do not. I was delighted with them at first but after a bit of wearing I notice a knock every time I moved my head, I traced it to the jack plug connection on the left ear piece, the connection is loose and any movement transfers a knocking noise through the ear piece which gets annoying after a while.

Great sound but shame about the lead connector

Scott Robertson, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: Great headphones for sound quality 5 stars. The headphone lead is connected separately and this led to it being broken in the first week which was annoying. So on those grounds I give it 3 stars.

everything is ok but I still worry about that and feel terrible about the broken package and unclearly barcode

  • Summary: when I received it, the package is broken, that let me worried about the headphones is a new one or not. Then I took a photo for the broken package and barcode stickers. After a week using, everything is ok but I still worry about that and feel terrible about the broken package and unclearly barcode. So please try to pay more attention on this thank you.

Yet another pair of nicely designed but overpriced headphones

Colin McCartney, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Has anyone else noticed how people seem to be prepared to pay silly money for headphones these days? As the once ubiquitous hi fi system disappears quickly, only to be replaced by stand-alone speakers and headphones, manufacturers have to earn their mark-up somewhere. Whilst speaker technology and has moved on in leaps and bounds recently, I don't think the same can be said for headphones, at least sound quality-wise.

Low end missing

S3Me, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Maybe it's down to my nexus 5 and ipad not having enough "umph" to drive these to their maximum, but I feel that the low end is underpowered compared to the mid and high. This leaves some songs feeling a bit 1-dimensional.

Klanglich guter Around-Ear, solider Tragekomfort, Materialwahl recht enttäuschend!

Century, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: Viel wurde ja bereits zum Sony MDR1RS geschrieben, deshalb fasse ich mich kurz. Der Sound des MDR1RS bietet ein gutes Mittelmaß in dieser Preisklasse. Ja, ich habe selten einen so neutralen Around-Ear Kopfhörer gehört. Der Sony bietet gute Höhen und Tiefen, ist jedoch auch nicht zu detailliert. Die Bässe sind spürbar, jedoch auch nicht wirklich tief bzw. satt. Der Klang bringt gutes Volumen herüber, jedoch würde ich auch nicht von voluminös sprechen.

Sony Kopfhörer

RaVo, Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe mir den Kopfhörer aufgrund von Testberichten und Rezensionen schicken lassen. Das Gerät sieht sehr edel aus, konnte mich aber klanglich nicht überzeugen (ist natürlich immer subjektiv). Was mich aber richtig gestört hat, war das kurze Kabel, das auch noch Geräusche beim Kontakt mit dem KH verursachte. Meine Mail an den Sony-Kundendienst, ob man ein längeres Kabel kaufen könnte, wurde nur mit dem Hinweis an einen Ersatzteile-Store beantwortet.
