Sony MDR-10RC OverHead Headphone

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #407 in Over-Ear

Posted

Pros: Fun, warm bass, good detailed mids and highs, wide soundstage, exceptional comfort

Cons: slightly recessed mids

The only thing I will say about the build is that they are made of quality materials, stylish, and one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever wore. They are so lightweight but not fragile.

 

SOUND

 

These are slightly V shaped.

 

BASS

 

Great sub bass, typical of the MDR range. Warm and present. Not of basshead levels, but those looking for fun bass with impact you'll like these.

 

MIDS

 

These are blended in with the bass but still good detail. A bit forward. Harmonies sound great and of decent detail.

 

HIGHS

 

Really good highs for a set with the amount of bass they have. Cymbals sound great. Actually have a decent amount of detail.

 

SOUNDSTAGE

 

These have great wide soundstage. For the price point and size I'm really surprised how wide these go and the amount of detail and volume present. I have AKG k550s, and these have wider soundstage.

 

Conclusion

 

These came on the market at £100 and offer some fantastic value at £35. These are a great starter if you're interested in the Sony MDR range and will give you a good feel for the sound signature. I've heard the MDR 1As and although better, these are not that far off... especially as they're nearly £70 cheaper.

 

A friend of mine agreed that these are better than Senn HD25iis which we both own. Senns have slightly more detail and i mean slightly, but these are much more fun. They are basically just a warmer version with only the type of bass that differs. Senns are more punchy and accurate, these are warmer with more presence. Both very similar level of detail in the MIDS and HIGHS. But they MDRs have a much much wider soundstage, HDs are very congested.

 

These work really good for watching movies as you forget you're wearing them they are that comfy. Action movies are great, helped by the wide soundstage they have.
