  • Summary: Let me start with build quality and comfort. Upon first holding them in my hands, I was surprised at how durable they felt, while still being very light weight. The cups themselves have a very nice finish that has been very resistant to any scratches or markings over the time I've had them (about a month). The hook parts that connect the cups to the headband are plastic, which I kind of have mixed feelings about.
  • Pros: Well built, comfortable, nice sound, detachable cable, scales well with better equipment
  • Cons: Wind noise is bad, not a wide soundstage, harsh treble with some gear

  • Summary: Fist time i use this z1000, it did not impress me at all. I feel like a dull sound and not open. until i realized that i need to get used to it before i can enjoy this cans. After i have had brain-burn in..spend about almost a week...than i started to enjoy the lush of its mids. Excellent for vocal song. Thou sometimes i feel like the sound staging is not that good. Is a bit too narrow. The bass need to be a bit punchier so it can suitable for pop/rock songs as well.
  • Pros: Balance sound, lush mids, good music separation, clean sound, good minimalis looks, solid build, perfect fit
  • Cons: need a bit of punch at low end, narrow soundstage

  • Summary: First, as a long time passive observer of this forum and I must say that what has interested me most about all of the reviews and comments here is how we all seem to hear differently. No surprises there since each of us has unique physiologies and experiences that affect our perception of sound—for the latter, think about the difficulty Japanese supposedly have hearing r and l.
  • Pros: controlled bass, good detail, clear rich sound, solid construction
  • Cons: LOUD, a bit bass heavy to my ears,

  • Summary: Excellent closed headphones for their price. They come in a fairly good package, nothing luxurious like a pair of HD800, but a normal cardboard box, but there's a satin piece of material where the headphones rest to give you the impression. Inside there's the usual manual and a booklet praising how revolutionary the Z1000 is :D   A leather/pleather carrying pouch,  fairly unremarkable but well made enough, there's a secondary pouch inside to allow to to separate the...
  • Pros: Fairly neutral, deep and controlled bass, very detailed treble. Sturdy built.
  • Cons: Small soundstage, unremarkable upper mids.

Awesome Isolation, Very good sound!

  • Summary: I would strongly recommend these headphones. I have purchased many headphones,in my collection i have more than 20 pairs of portable and semi portable headphones. The Sony MRD-Z1000 are a good compromise of good sound,isolation,comfort and style. They are made of magnesium so they are sturdy as well. Sound leakage is almost non-existent so they are perfect to use in silent environments like an office.

Ehrlich währt am längsten

Endanwender.001, Amazon

  • Summary: Der geschlossene Sony ist sehr gut verarbeitet, sehr stabil und sehr leicht - hochwertiges Material, beim Gestell und den Schalen etwa kommt Leichtmetall zum Einsatz, zahlt sich eben aus. Kopf- und Ohrpolster sind aus Kunstleder, ob es Ersatz in Echtleder gibt, weiß ich nicht. Vielleicht möchte Sony was in die Richtung unternehmen?

Dance Kopfhörer

Sergius, Amazon
2 July 2012
  • Summary: Zuallererst fällt unbequeme Passform negativ auf. Ok es ist ein mobiler Kopfhörer... Aber der Klang ist jedem stationären KH in dieser Preisklasse haushoch überlegen, besitze einen HD600 und Ultrasone Pro2900. Deswegen wäre es eine Riesenverschwendung den nicht stationär zu nutzen mit aller Bequemlichkeit die dazu gehört. Im Internet gefunden das man ihn mit HIFIMAN Polstern betreiben kann! Gleich ein Paar davon bestellt und angebracht, war gar nicht schwer.

unausgewogen

  • Summary: Hallo, hier meine Eindrücke über den Sony Z1000. Für dieses doch nette Sümmchen habe ich schon etwas Besonderes erwartet, leider ging diese Erwartung nun gar nicht auf. Optik, Handhabung, Passform: Die Optik finde ich den 7oer Jahre KH nach empfunden, aber sehr edel. Die Materialien sind stimmig. Die Handhabung und der Sitz sind genial. Hat man den KH kurz zu Recht gerückt, sitz er wie angegossen und schirmt optimal ab.
