PC Magazine

  • 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.

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. They've got digital noise cancelling (the headphones, not the Republicans) and some great design and build quality.

Sony MDR-1RNC noise cancelling over-ear headphones review

Pocket Lint
5 February 2013
  • Excerpt: We've had the Sony MDR-1RNC noise cancelling over-ear headphones in the Pocket-lint offices for weeks now and have been using them non-stop - while at work, when commuting, out on the streets and at home. We already had a lot of love to give to the baby of the range, the similar-named MDR-1R model, but can the top-spec noise cancelling model - with its eye-watering £449 recommended retail price - closer to £330 in the real world - deliver the goods a step above?
  • 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.

12 April 2013
  • Summary: Sony MDR-1RNC $ 630 *** * * Эти наушники недешевы, но первые впечатления хороши - качество изготовления безупречно, наушники очень удобны и весят как раз столько, сколько нужно. Sony определенно стоят своих денег. Включение шумоподавления вызывает забавный эффект: все низкие частоты из окружающего пространства пропадают, но высокие и средние остаются; в офисе вас будет преследовать стук клавиш.
