Conclusion: The Sony MDR1-RNC offers laudable audio quality and solid noise cancellation, but despite top-notch performance, it's priced too high.
Pros: Distortion-free audio performance with rich bass and crisp highs. Outputs audio in passive mode. Extremely comfortable. Includes two detachable audio cables, one with inline remote and microphone for mobile devices.
Cons: Overpriced compared with similar models. No battery charger or ¼-inch adapter included.
Conclusion: All things considered we are pretty impressed by the MDR-1RNC. Generally it sounds excellent, even if it's not the best we've ever heard. The lows are a little too weak to accomplish that, and this will be noticeable to those that enjoy bass-heavy music.
Excerpt: Given that Sony practically created the mobile music business, it’s not surprising to find that its entrant into this premium category is very solid. In fact, we only had one gripe with the MDR-1RNC headphones that stopped us from giving these a higher score.
Sony MDR-1RNC noise cancelling over-ear headphones
5 February 2013
Conclusion: We think the MDR-1RNC headphones are exceptional in part, but not as a whole. The build quality, design and overall sound quality is excellent, yet the active noise cancellation strips the sound back a step too far for our ears.
Pros: Comfy, stylish, great sound, lots of mid-high frequency range 'snap' yet enough bass to deliver a rounded sound
Cons: Active noise cancellation strips back the sound, exposed drivers can touch against ears, not necessarily perfect for on-the-go listening as wind catches external mics when noise cancellation is on, price is too steep
Summary: Sony’nin XB, yani extra bass kulaklıkları hem göze hem de kulağa hitap eden üst seviye ürünler. Kulağa tam oturan ve dış sesi kesen yapısının yanında, ses kalitesi de ürünün kuvvetli yanlarından. XB 910, 600 ve 400 modellerini inceliyoruz. Ek olarak MDR1 RNC de inceleme konuğumuz.
Conclusion: Al bij al zijn we behoorlijk enthousiast over de MDR-1RNC. Overwegend klinkt hij uitstekend, ook al is het niet de allerbeste hoofdtelefoon die we ooit gehoord hebben. Daarvoor is de laagweergave toch wat aan de zwakke kant, wat met name voor liefhebbers van muziek waar bas de voornaamste component...
