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
