  • Summary: Compared with other noise-reducing headphones, the Sony MDR-1RNC headphones are near the front of the pack when it comes to superb sound quality and overall comfort. Even with minor shortcomings, the MDR-1RNCs are extremely convenient to listen to and wear at home, at the office or on the road.
  • Pros: The sound quality is so brilliant you’ll discover new levels in your favorite songs and movie scores.
  • Cons: Noise is only reduced up to 13 decibels via the active noise cancellation feature.

Review: Sony MDR-X10 Simon Cowell and MDR-1RNC Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
17 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Noise cancelling and celebrity-endorsed headphones are two of the biggest categories in big headphones. You can thank Beats for that, I suppose. In one hand, I've got the MDR-1RNC which apparently are not endorsed by the Republican National Committee. At least, I don't think.

Sony MDR-1RNC headphones

MacWorld
13 May 2013
  • 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

Pocket Lint
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
