Conclusion: The Sony MDR-1RBT gets excellent reviews from both professionals and users. Its sound quality, sturdy build and comfort are all praised almost universally. This headset also includes near field communication (NFC) for easier pairing with certain devices, though reviewers disagree about how useful...
Pros: Good sound quality, Very comfortable, Well built, NFC pairing
Cons: Minor connection problems, Can't use while charging
Excerpt: Today we’re looking at the Sony does a good number of things well and these headphones follow stongly in that well established tradition. To start off with a bold statement: These are the overall nicest and most technically advanced bluetooth headphones that I've reviewed to date.
Summary: I like a good sound for my music I listen to rock , pop , ballad, techno , electronic etc. ... a little of everything to anime music . This headset then buy what you do not fill my expectations my mdr- 10r so I went to the older models like the mdr- 1rbt .
Pros: Excellent sound quality, comfortable Good quality construction and materials, long battery time.
Summary: So I've owned a pair of these for a good 2 weeks now, and never leave the house without them.
I've owned a pair of bluetooth Sennheiser MM100 headphones before these for years, which where pretty good, very good even. But I sold the MM100 within 1 week, of owning these MDR1RBT's.
Pros: Idioticly clear(analytic but not boring), real nice mids and high, deep bass. Great looks.
Cons: Have had a few dropouts in the beginning, not anymore.
Summary: Since I've spent a bit of time niggling I want to restate that overall I think these cans are very good looking, very comfortable, and a pleasure to use. The critic in me will always find stuff to complain about, but overall I very much like the MDR-1R line of headphones, and think there are few...
Excerpt: Some days you want to throw open the windows, crank up your stereo and rattle the walls with your favorite music. Other times, you want to drift off into your own little sonisphere, totally walled off from the rest of the world.
Cons: No mute button. Anemic quick-start guide and sad online documentation. High price. Drawstring cloth carrying pouch could be more substantial (and secure). Slightly unsightly stitching on (incredibly comfortable) leather-like earcup coverings.
Summary: I am writing this quick review after about 20 minutes of use so I hope I am not jumping the gun, but after trying 5 other head phones (sennheiser momentum and amperior, Vmoda M100, the new PSB and the bowers & wilkins P5) I could not find quite what I was looking for.
Summary: A very good headphone , fills a niche in my collection being quite Bass heavy as opposed to my other day-to-day headphone the Senn HD595.
It is a very comfortable can , with very good quality faux leather for the ear cups , but it can get sweaty at times.
Pros: Good Passive Insulation + Comfort , Good sound quality amped +un-amped , Very stylish and solid
Cons: Not a metal headband as appears, Bluetooth causes some initial delay on every song played , Mic not sensitive enough for Siri / Android commands
Summary: I recently got the 1RBT because I had a couple of Sony vouchers, and I have to say, while I am still uncertain of it's full retail price, I do really love this pair of headphones. The retail price is $498 Singapore Dollars.
My experience with headphones were on the lower-end Grados and AKGs.
Pros: Interesting sound, easy Bluetooth setup, comfortable in cool climates
Cons: Interesting sound, sweaty ears in hot climates

Summary: Sony’s MDR-1RBT headphones sound equally good whether you’re listening wired or wirelessly. Hooking up with Bluetooth does give a bit of a bump to bass and treble, too, as well as the convenience of no cords. The convenience of NFC - if you’ve got a compatible mobile - is even better.
Pros: Excellent wireless and wired sound quality, Convenient via Bluetooth and NFC, Rechargeable, works in passive mode
